Let's Fight for Wisconsin and Governor Walker!!!
This is to request everyone's help in making sure the statists don't succeed in the Wisconson recalls. As you probably know, labor unions and left wing political activist groups are literally pouring millions into trying to recall Governor Scott Walker, ten GOP members of the Wisconsin state legislature, and Wisconsin Judge David Prosser. None of these officials did anything wrong, immoral, or illegal. The unions are simply angry that Governor Walker forced some state workers to contribute to their fringe benefits, just like everybody in the private sector already does.
While the cowardly "walkout" by Wisconsin state legislators denied Governor Walker a quorum to institute a comprehensive budget fix, he was able to make a labor fix, as well as some ad hoc executive decisions, that have proved nothing short of miraculous in only one year:
This is a make or break issue for the unions and conservatives alike. If the unions succeed in the recalls, it could easily result in a rollback of the Walker reforms, and send a very threatening message to other states. At potentially mortal physical risk to himself and his family (which has not abated), Governor Walker did what was right for his state. The threats, harrassment, and even assaults continue on the Governor. Governor Walker has done what’s necessary to balance Wisconsin's budget, create jobs, and give future generations of Wisconsinites a chance at pursuing the American Dream. However, these bold, mature policies fly in the face of union tyranny and challenge the power of left-wing radicals, and especially violent union bosses and their cohorts.
What is happening in Wisconsin right now is a bellweather for the nation. You can clearly see this from the fact that radical union activists are trying to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. What actual malfeasance did he commit? None. The unions just don't like him, so they want to run him out of office, despite the fact that Michigan voters have spoken at the polls. What's the point of having a vote if minority malcontents can challenge the will of the people without valid reason? This is exactly the same issue we are facing in Wisconsin.
We can't let the unions and progressives call the agenda on this issue. The stakes are too high. While the left is pouring literally millions of dollars into these ridiculous Wisconsin recalls, conservatives don't have to match them dollar for dollar, because our message is better.
I am asking you to do three things:
(1) Make a donation, in whatever amount you can reasonably afford, at https://secure.donationsafe.com/mwl (The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama) or http://www.teapartyexpress.org/contribute (Tea Party Express). Both groups are actively fighting the recalls with protests, ads, public education bus tours, high profile speakers, etc. I know times are tough, but alot of small donations can add up to alot of money. This kind of grassroots activity is expensive, and Governor Walker is running a very close race against the recall radicals.
(2) Go viral and broadcast this thread to your followers and friends.
(3) Create discussions in your conservative groups to send people to this thread. Simply put you want in the title box (anything appropriate, such as simply the title of this thread), and copy/paste the link to this thread in the body text area.
The unions aren't just angry, but they're scared too. Greg Junemann, the President of the Professional and Technical Engineers Union and a Milwaukee resident, stated publicly "If we lose, it's a shot in the mouth." In fact, the unions and left wing radicals are terrified. They know if the recalls fail, other states, initially small red ones, will emulate Governor Walker's policies to fix their own budget and employment crises. If the recalls succeed, many Governors in other other states will be afraid to take the steps needed to fix their growing problems, and the successful Wisconsin reforms may be rolled back by union-label political hacks who might replace Walker and many of the Wisconsin state legislators who support him. Wisconsin is truly the "line in the sand." If Governor Walker loses, we all lose
