Just what is store for the big 2012 elections? Well, let me tell you – it’s going to be fun. Fun for me, at least. You see, there are a lot of people who tire of politics pretty quickly. After a certain point (usually about 2 weeks) people tend to give up. They say, “I’m tired of arguing. You win.” Sorry, but that’s not me. Scott Walker has been tearing up my home state of Wisconsin for over a year now, and he’s been rattling more than a few cages. I’ve stood along with him the whole time, and I’m ready to keep on fighting!
In case you don’t remember, Scott Walker is the governor who fought with the public employee unions. What was the fight over? Well – he wanted them to pitch in more for their healthcare benefits and pension, and he promised to severely restrict the unions’ bargaining privileges. (Notice I said “privileges”, not “rights”.) During that time we had democrats from all over the country, usually being paid by some union, being bused into the Wisconsin capital. 14 democrat senators even left the state and hid in Illinois, just to hold up a vote on the bill. Wisconsin politics was a circus.
Long story short, the bill passed, and democrats and public sector unions were furious. It was as if the world ended because they suddenly had to contribute to their pension. Not only that, but unions had much less power. Instead of requiring employees to pay union dues, employees have a choice. That means that a big chunk of them will no longer want to contribute, and the unions will get less money. What do they do with that money? They take it and spend it on elections for democrats, who in turn give unions more power and more money. It’s a giant money laundering scheme, and the taxpayers were getting ripped off. Not anymore!
A year has passed since Walker took office, allowing the democrats to begin their recall process, which started with gathering signatures. The democrat party paid people to stand outside of businesses, on street corners, in front of schools, and wherever else, to get people to sign the petition to recall Walker. The rules of the process were thrown away. More than one signature per person? Sure, why not? Sign for your friends and family? Go right ahead. Make up names and addresses? You bet! The whole process was an absolute cluster-f**k and an embarrassment to the democratic process.
But the signatures are in. Walker will soon have his recall election. Sooner rather than later (so as not to give the democrats extra time to campaign for their candidate – Kathleen Falk) the time to vote for Walker (again) will come. But don’t think that the fight is over. I believe Walker will win his recall election, but it’s not the end. Power hungry unions eager to get their hands on your hard earned tax dollars will continue to wage war against Scott Walker, Wisconsin, and conservatives all across America.
The politics don’t stop at the state line. National politics are just as much fun, and can be even more ugly. That’s what we’ve got in store for us. Barry Obama has set his goals on raising an astonishing $1 billion for his 2012 campaign. Along with Wallstreet, unions, the media, and Hollywood, Obama will wage an all out war against his opponent. Don’t expect an easy victory.
That being said, Obama is fundraising a billion dollars because he knows he’ll need it. Remember 2008? The country was different back then. We were sick of the same old Republican administration. The wars in the middle east, and Bush-era bulls**t. Too many people were tired and were looking for something new. Barry Obama is who they found. He was unknown. He was fresh. Oh – and he was black! How historic! He was just what people were looking for.
Obama is what I call “the catch-phrase president”. His whole campaign was just that – catch phrases. “Hope and Change”, “Fundamentally Transform America”, “Yes, We Can!”. Unfortunately, his reign as king of America (I mean president) was the same way – “Fair Share”, “Obamacare”, and “Warren Buffet pays less than his secretary”. Yeah, yeah. We’ve all heard it, and America is tired of it. Obama’s presidency has been a wreck. He’s taken the country in a direction people don’t want to go and people are afraid of another 4 years of Obama-nomics.
What’s all this mean? Well, it’s going to be a fight, but we can win! The Hollywood elites, and the leftist media are no match for honest patriotic Americans. You know – the types who cling to their guns and Bibles – HEY! That’s me! (Note to self – buy new gun with tax return.) In the end, this year will turn out okay, but it’ll be a battle. I’m ready for it, and I want to get you ready for it. Don’t shy away from conversations about politics. Talk with your friends, family, and coworkers. Let them know what you believe, why you believe it, and what you’re going to do about it. Spread the word!
All the lunacy in both Madison and in DC can be tiring, I know. But this is what it’s all about. Put on your armor, get ready for battle, and let’s fundamentally transform America BACK to what it’s supposed to be!
