Tomorrow is D-Day. What happens tomorrow may change the course of politics for a generation and it could have incredible national implications.
What is going on tomorrow and why is it so important?
Tomorrow is the Wisconsin Recall vote. The hard left is trying to recall Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch because Walker and the Republicans have taken apart the mechanism the left has used to siphon tax dollars to fund their radical activities.
From the Hill:
Wisconsin voters are set to go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether Gov. Scott Walker (R) will stay in office, an election that could have implications far beyond the state and could prove to be a key test of union power ahead of the November presidential election.
Walker himself became a conservative icon after confronting labor last year by pushing through legislation that limited public workers’ collective bargaining rights, leading to the recall.
Major unions and Tea Party groups have plowed substantial funds into the recall election. Politicians on the national scene have journeyed to the state to campaign with their chosen candidates.
But the stakes are particularly high for labor groups, which have invested heavily in the fight to unseat Walker and have expressed concerns that their traditional Democratic allies haven’t been as committed.
Asked on Fox News Sunday whether a Walker victory meant Wisconsin swings to Romney in the fall, Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign, said he couldn’t say, but that more states in the region are moving towards the GOP.
“There is something going on in Wisconsin and all across the Great Lakes where it is moving away from liberal Democratic policies and for more reform-oriented Republican policies,” Gillespie said.
Walker is only the third governor to face a recall election in American history. Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), who saw anti-collective bargaining rights legislation he backed overturned in a citizens’ referendum last year, called a potential Walker win “amazing.”
“I think Walker is probably going to win. I mean I think — it's really amazing. He has done a fantastic job. And I think he is going to win this,” Kasich said on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
Democrats have said they must win Tuesday so others don’t follow Walker’s example.
“It will embolden other Tea Party types to continue the work that he’s already started,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.). “Of course it will embolden them. That’s why we are doubling down on our resolve to beat back this national Tea Party effort.”
Wisconsin is the battle of our lifetimes. It will decide the future of the nation. This battle pits real Americans against far left radicals.
If you know anyone in Wisconsin, call them and ask them to vote for Walker and Kleefisch.
Tomorrow real Americans will prevail for our nation and for our children and grandchildren.
Let's pray that Walker and Kleefisch win.
Fasting and praying for Walker and Kleefisch - our top priority at our prayer group today. Please pray!
It looks like the vote tomorrow is but one of the efforts being made by unions and other anti-liberty groups. There is also an effort being made to criminalize Walker about some campaign donations. This isn't new news, but it is ongoing. The left will stop at nothing to remove Walker and replace him with a Democrat. Walker, himself, has received several death threats from leftists. here's another one.
I agree, this shows the divisiveness of the nation, not just Wisconsin. It also shows just how much the TEA Party worries the Left. This is something we should all be proud of ;)
PLEASE: It is almost ALWAYS falsely reported that the public employee union reforms backed and signed by Governor John Kasich[OH] were overturned by a union backed citizens referendum. While it IS correct that a section of the Law was amended ... that section only applied the reform to all government entities within the State below State level. The Law as it applied to State hired employees was NEVER repealed.
Those paying attention to the Wisconsin battle know that Walker's recall opponent [a Mayor] saved millions in his city budget using Walker's legislative reforms. This is what was blocked in Ohio. Ohio erased their multi-billions dollar deficit largely due to and with the legislation Kasich signed.
Sadly, last October, Kasich climbed into "tyranny bed" with gambling interests unconstitutionally violating Ohio's constitution and using an [executive order]. I suppose conservatives are supposed to call that a "good compromise" as one tyranny was "balanced" by one sound legislative gain. However, in reality, there is NO basis in sound reason nor constitutions for public employee unions and THAT was not done away with in Ohio ... OR in Wisconsin as it needs to be.
While I agree both Walker AND Kleefisch NEED retained by voters in WI, we have so very much MORE that needs done and precious little time to do it.
Who's monitoring the ballot-counting process? Election fraud is how the Democrats are going to fight back.
Thanks Ginny. It seems like poll-watching has to be a round-the-clock process... we're familiar with the scenario where the Dem candidate is behind until the doors are locked and everybody goes home for the night. Suddenly they have a sweeping majority the next day. How do we stop Dem operatives from working in the middle of the night?
Disillusioned Lizzie, you are correct. That's what happened in Minnesota when Al Frankin was declared the winner. We are facing the same in the general election in November. I have read that the counting of the ballots will be done in Spain. Don't know if it's true but we must all stand together to defeat the fraud.
Don't know if you saw this on Drudge: The Department of Justice is going to monitor the Wisconsin recall election.
So basically, count on fraud and voter intimidation.
Tomorrow is a most important day in American History. Tomorrow may well tell us what will happen in November, 2012.
The very EVIL nature, intents, and actions of these folks who abhor our constitutions, rule of valid laws, and Liberty ... is WHY we cannot, Must NOT, compromise with them. Every time I hear some self identified "moderate" whining about "why can't conservatives learn all politics is about compromising and half loaves," I want to puke because I was NEVER taught to compromise with EVIL. And those trying to subvert, overturn and destroy our republic and Liberty are not misguided ... They Are EVIL!
