The Deal With Wisconsin
The “dead heat” in Wisconsin is an unnatural situation that only exists because of the liberal organizations who can’t stomach the thought of a conservative Wisconsin. The moment Wisconsin’s newly elected governor began to do the unthinkable and give Wisconsinites the ability to decide on their own whether or not they would monetarily contribute to unions, the union bosses everywhere in the country felt fear for the first time…ever.
Extrapolating the scene in Wisconsin a year ahead, these bosses had a vision of the currently forced union membership departing in droves, their coffers and thus their political influence drying up in the process. Unable to simply stand by and watch this occur, they utilized the resources they do still currently have on hand and traveled to the Badger State to fan the small liberal flames that existed there until they got it as hot as they could.
Through a process of incessantly busing in protesters, buying media blitzes, and funding every relevant anti-Walker event they could find or fabricate, they engaged in a fear-mongering campaign that managed to barely eek out the signatures necessary to invoke a recall election. And so tomorrow, Tuesday June the 5th, 2012, Wisconsinites will once again be forced to go to the polls to defend their initial decision to institute a conservative state government.
As usual, the droves of political analysts from both sides of the aisle are fervently pouring over poll results, demographics, past election results, and recent news stories to attempt to prognosticate what tomorrow’s results in Wisconsin will mean regarding the national election in November. These analysts propose guesses that are all over the map. Some say that the results are irrelevant to the national election and are strictly a reflection of Wisconsin. Others say contrary, that a win by Walker means a win for Romney, and vice versa. Allow me to clear this up for everyone.
Wisconsin is and has been, historically, a Democratic state. Their electoral votes in 2008 were all given to Barack Obama; this was no surprise. But as Wisconsinites watched Obama execute the office of President, they, like the rest of the nation, began to slowly see the man’s true nature. Wisconsin may be historically Democratic, but they’re also folks filled with good common sense, and when they saw their elected leader time after time turn a deaf ear to those he served and fast track his own personal agenda despite their very vocal opposition and despite the continuous economically destructive results, something happened to them as it did to the rest of America: the patriot in them was fully awakened. We know this to be a fact by the mid-term election results in Wisconsin. They overwhelmingly chose to elect conservatives in every arena, putting as much distance between themselves and the socialist agenda of the left as possible. Their new Republican governor, true to his word and stated values, began to set Wisconsin’s house in order fiscally. This necessarily meant limiting the legacy “rights” that the compulsory unions had managed to amass over the years, and imposing common sense rules on the way they functioned. Changes such as asking union members to actually contribute to their own retirements and forcing unions to allow membership to be an individual choice were among the “crazy” ideas Governor Scott Walker and the state’s legislature agreed to implement in order to balance their state’s budget. It was also these “world ending” changes that caused the “Chicken Littles” of the national union scene to flock to Wisconsin and declare to the minority there that was opposed to change and fiscal responsibility that the sky was falling and they were all doomed unless they politically assassinated several of the individuals they had just recently elected.
The natural state of Wisconsin, sans the futile yet fervent efforts of the national unions and other socialist organizations, is one of moderate conservatism, common sense, and sound judgment. The millions of dollars being spent to try and circumvent and cloud Wisconsin’s true nature has resulted in an appearance on the national scene of a state in turmoil and gridlock, but it is nothing more than the smoke and mirrors of liberal media outlets partnered with deep-pocketed liberal zealots. Fortunately for Wisconsin and all of America, polling day is when the truth is always known. That is the day when the true will of the people is reflected in the ballot counts.
The midterm elections of 2010 turned the liberal world absolutely upside down, and they spent countless weeks attempting and failing to comprehend the “shellacking” they were so blatantly given at that time. They couldn’t understand it then and they won’t understand it now, but Wednesday morning in Wisconsin the liberals will once again be scratching their heads and searching their socialist hearts for the understanding of how their efforts in Wisconsin could have failed so miserably. And, though the answer they seek will be right in front of them, they will once again be unable to comprehend it. Quite simply, the people demand common sense. Wednesday morning, Governor Walker and the conservative legislature that Wisconsinites put into place initially will still have their name plates on their desks and be free to work on behalf of their great state, while the liberal bastions silently grieve, ponder, and pout amongst themselves. This is the result that we will all be presented with the day after the recall elections in Wisconsin.
And just to put to rest the quandary some analysts find themselves in of whether or not the recall results have any bearing on how Wisconsin will vote in the presidential election, the answer is no, not at all. Wisconsinites are very free thinkers and not the sheeple the unions and liberals wish that they were. The issues surrounding the recall elections have nothing at all to do with the presidential election, and though this writer believes that Wisconsin will most definitely choose Romney over Obama, that fact is completely unrelated to tomorrow night’s ballot results.
