Scott Walker Fights Liberals As Wisconsin Becomes Disunion
Written by 

Jeff CrouereToday, as our economy is weak and Americans are worried about their future, it is time we faced the truth about our greatest internal threat. Our literal survival as a prosperous nation is being threatened by a reckless thrust for government expansion and public sector spending. The financial situation in our country is a nightmare with budget deficits from sea to shining sea.

Any objective observer must realize that it is time for an effective response to these budget deficits. Fortunately, some courageous Governors are stepping forward to take action. Governors Mitch Daniels of Indiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey have encountered the wrath of liberals for trying to reign in out of control spending. Yet, no Governor has faced the venom that has greeted Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

He is dealing with a massive $3.6 billion budget deficit, which must be eliminated. States do not have the luxury of printing money like the federal government. Walker has proposed sensible action to limit collective bargaining rights of public sector employees and reducing their outrageous benefits. In Wisconsin, teachers are paid approximately $100,000 annually in salary and benefits, more than double the salary of the average worker in that state. Instead of negotiating with the Governor, Democrats have engaged in the most reprehensible form of political theater. Democratic Senators left the state; refusing to vote on the Governor’s bill. Union protesters have been jamming the State Capitol building, trying to prevent the Republicans from conducting the state’s business. They have staged outrageous protests, even bringing in communist loving documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who railed about rich people while living in a 50,000 square foot home.

The Governor was elected by the people of Wisconsin. He is following his campaign promises to deal with the budget crisis. Instead of abiding by the election results, Democrats want to shut down the government and stop the will of the people from being implemented. This type of rogue protest is dangerous and could spread to other states in need of tough budget cuts. Soon, the United States may resemble Greece and other countries where riots are breaking out as budget cuts are introduced.

Today, protesters are not following police orders to vacate the building. They are comparing the Governor to Hitler, Mussolini and other dictators. Some Republican Senators have even received death threats.

In Wisconsin, a violent minority is trying to bring the state government to its knees. The Democrats and their union allies want to maintain the status quo and make the suffering taxpayers foot the bill for the budget deficit.

These battles can be expected in other states as well and the liberals and their friends in the mainstream news media will continue to paint the GOP as the villains. Hopefully, Governor Walker will stand firm and inspire other Governors to make the tough decisions that are past due. Our country can no longer afford the massive public sector salaries and the outrageous welfare state spending. It is time for real leaders to emerge in this nation. Fortunately, we are seeing leadership in action in Wisconsin. Instead of being vilified, Governor Walker should be praised, for he is doing something rarely seen in our political world, displaying true courage.
