An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

“Voters really do want leaders who stand up and make the tough calls,” Walker said in his victory speech, to chants of “Thank You Scott.”
A not so good day for the socialists though. Now, it might be a good way to start healing the state by the union thugs, who started this whole fiasco, to start coughing up the bucks to pay back the taxpayers for the costs incurred by their complete idiocy!
Gender Selection Abortions
….how many more ‘facts’ do you need to vote NO if, and when, this travesty is brought before the Senate? As an elected official, it is your job to ‘protect and defend the Constitution of the United States’, and this treaty is in complete violation of that oath. Handing power over to a foreign entity, and the United Nations is about as foreign as they get, is an act of treason, IMHO.
Oh, and an FYI….I’m taking a real close look at your primary opponent, and I’m really hoping other Tennesseans will be doing the same!
Welp, today is a REALLY big day in the world of politics. Yep…that’s right! It’s Wisconsin’s day to decide if they want to be fiscally responsible, or kowtow to a bunch of socialist union thugs. And yeah, it really IS that simple.
Do the citizens want to go back to the days when the unions ran the state into the ground, financially, to the point that property taxes are more than the property is worth (slight exaggeration), or would they like to see more businesses and jobs come in, and get its citizens back to work? Now, to me, it’s a no brainer. Sadly, there are some in Wisconsin, who have never bothered to look at the facts! Cutting the deficit, adding jobs, about 33,000 (granted, not as many as he would have liked, but looking at the national economy, it’s not surprising), and getting Wisconsin’s fiscal health in order.
Most people with two brain cells to rub together understand what Governor Walker has been trying to do to save the state. I’m afraid there is little sympathy for those who whined about having to pay a bit more for their own health care, and add more of their of their paycheck to their own pensions (out of their salaries, paid by the taxpayers). If those who were destroying the capital, with clean up costs in the several million dollars range, cared anything about their state, and those who actually pay them to do the job they were hired to do, then this would never have been an issue.
Unfortunately, the previous administration handed the state over to the unions, and evidently, they felt entitled to the money that non government worker earned. The ‘you owe me’ mentality’ is why the entire country is in the state it’s in now. The Wisconsin unions mentality during this whole protest and recall election asininity is a glaring example of WHY we need to show restraint in government spending, in a LOT of areas.
Walker’s opponent, Tom Barrett, and his minions, have been busy spreading as many lies as possible, yet there are those in the state who will swallow anything that a Dem will tell them. In this day and age, with the ability to check just about anything put out there, on the internet, you’d think there wouldn’t be so many gullible people…..who vote! Then there was the latest line of caca de toro, proving that no matter what levels the democrats have to stoop, they’ll do it. Lie…cheat…steal….assault!
While REAL Wisconsinites are heading to the polls, then off to their job, the crazies are at the capital again… having an ‘omm fest‘? Seriously? Don’t you people think it’s past time to grow the hell up, take responsibility for yourselves, and your actions, and be productive members of society, giving once in a while, instead of TAKE TAKE TAKE!
By the way….Walker is going to win, and you sh*t for brains, who started all this crap, should foot the bill, instead of the taxpayers having to contribute even more of their hard earned money for YOUR stupidity!
Changing America’s Course
There’s no way to predict how the 2012 elections will turn out. But it will be a turning point in American history: Either our leaders will guide the country even further along the road to “progressivism” or they will begin a long, slow turn back toward the principles of the American Founding. To help our leaders make the correct choices, The Heritage Foundation is putting a marker down with a publication called Changing America’s Course that gives our political leaders recommendations on how to stay within the limits of the Constitution.
You’ve probably read Heritage’s financial proposal, Saving the American Dream, and our prescription for a Conservative foreign policy. Those ideas are crucial building blocks in our approach. But they are only parts of the larger crisis facing Americans today–the crisis of constitutional government–that Saving the American Dream deals with.
The United States is unique. Ours is a republic dedicated to the universal principles of human liberty: that all are fundamentally equal and equally endowed with unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
