By now, almost everyone knows Scott Walker and his Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch defeated the far radical left in the recall effort in Wisconsin yesterday. MSNBC hosts are still on suicide watch and Chris Matthews was last seen staggering down Pennsylvania Avenue wailing for the ghost of Dan Rather.
The Tea Party won last night but what is this going to mean? Who are the winners and the losers last night?
Scott Walker was the winner last night. So was Rebecca Kleefisch. That goes without saying. Walker took over half the vote and got more votes than he did two years ago. Walker’s star is clearly rising in the Republican Party. Conservatism is a big winner last night too.
The people of Wisconsin and other people are fed up the far left using the public treasury as the source of their funding. The people were receptive to Walker’s message of cutting lavish union benefits and eliminating programs that were simply a huge profit center for the unions.
The big loser last night was Barack Obama. Obama could not force himself to go to Wisconsin and campaign. Perhaps it was because the campaign was not about him. Bill Clinton went and that did not help him or the Wisconsin recall.
The far left and the Unions lost and were the biggest losers last night. The people of Wisconsin spoke loudly last night. They were tired of simply being cash donors for the unions and were tired of the union tactics.
The power of the left, namely their ability to extract public money to fund their activities has been severely diminished.
As we celebrate this win for the Tea Party and Conservatism last night, we need to look ahead at the dark clouds on the horizon.
Had Scott Walker lost last night, conservatives would have said they were disappointed and perhaps there would have been some accusations fraud, if there were some facts to support it.
What happened when Walker won?
The left went nuts. No longer do we have a situation where one side gracefully concedes and then starts to work on the next election. Leftists got on Twitter calling for Scott Walker’s death. These were not one or two tweets but a lot of them. Radical leftists yesterday were caught on video, which was on Breitbart.com saying they hoped Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch would die from colon cancer. Kleefisch, the mother of young children, is a cancer survivor.
We are seeing a serious breakdown in the fabric of American society. The far left, which is basically anyone in the Democrat Party, does not believe in free and fair elections anymore. They do not believe in listening to the will of the people.
The far left loves power. It is what they crave. They do not care about minor issues like liberty and freedom. When they are losing power they go crazy.
Unfortunately now, they are becoming more and more unhinged and it is now only a matter of time before we see serious violence from the far left.
Yesterday, the Pew Research Center released a report showing that there is a major and almost un-crossable divide between real Americans and the far left. Americans have become more and more polarized.
For the left, they only want power. Their goal of obtaining power will destroy the American dreams of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
There can be no compromise with the left now. All we can do is go to the people, win and totally defeat the far left.
While we still can.
I have suggested a solution to this problem in a book I wrote - The Rebirth of the Constitution - go to Amazon.com - go to books - search authors - Richard Banko - you'll find the book there - everyone should read it and then push for the solution in the book - might be the only way to save thiscountry from itself (Lefty nut jobs)
If you want to save the country, post it online for free.
We need to get rid of Federal workers unions. A lot of those workers are just marking time till retirement.
We need to go much further by eliminating entire unconstitutional government departments, starting with the departments of education, energy and the epa.
Read the 10th amendment. You are absolutely correct.
Governor Perry had suggested as much. When he did, the "neo-cons" came to big governments rescue! He was called everything from a "globalist to a hayseed to a Democrat!" But he was merely taking a literal view of the constitution.
Education, Energy, Commence and Environmental Protection are responsibilities reserved for the states. This is simply the way our founders designed it. Big government advocates have a major problem accepting this reality.
I agree 100% with above posts. It is disgusting that Federal employees who are slackers can keep on the payroll forever. I don't know of a single useful thing to come out of the Dept of Education.
The metaphor "Swine feeding at the public trough" is more literal that not.
yes.. agreed.. the dues are not very much, and they're prohibited from striking, but they're nothing more than an employee advocacy group. They take that small portion of labor law that applies to public sector affiliation. The only "product" they deliver is elevating members beyond their training or competency by manipulating selection processes..
I just switched TV channels for a sec, from Fox Business to the Far Left radical Stephanie Miller show on the Liberal "Current TV" channel. They were disgusting in their comments about every Conservative. They ridiculed their names and insulted them in some of the most degrading ways. It had absolutely nothing to do with the issues, politics, or the future of America. It was nothing but insulting garbage.
I can see the truth in this article about violence coming from the Left. They are nothing but vengeful little spoiled brats who have never been taught how to accept "no" for an answer by their parents. I can't help but wonder what they're truly capable of.
How can you point out their poor choice of expression and then start it yourself? Name calling and put downs get us no where.
Truth is the difference -- if the statement is based upon fact, then they may truly be vengeful little spoiled brats. On the other hand, the liberal commentators express opinion but rarely allow the opposing view to present the facts supporting their side.
Ignoring the truth and never calling a true negative what it is, is simply p.c. run amok. It is a ploy of the left to silence the opposition.
We The People are on a roll. However, do not feel over confident. We have to proceed with caution. We will prevail.
