The mayhem in Madison is just the opening salvo of what is to come over the next couple of years. The socialists mean business, and Republicans, conservatives, and Tea Party people had better prepare themselves for an all out assault. It’s hard ball from here on out.
The Washington Times put it this way:
“Message to Wisconsin taxpayers: President Obama and the Democratic National Committee have declared war on you. Message to other states: You’re next.”
Obama has been looking for this battle his entire adult life, such as a man-child can have an adult life. It is the only sort of war he is willing to fight; the only kind of thing that will keep him off the golf course.
America is already a divided country, but the width of the fissure is only going to grow as both states and the federal government battle it out over budget deficits. The tectonic plates, one red, the other blue, move farther apart every week. Each side accuses the other of intransigence, but only the blue plate has to lie and make up stories to back up their accusations.
This is all good. It is battle that must be fought. America is flat broke. Most states are on the verge of bankruptcy. Democrats can whine all they want, but sooner or later they have to face reality: there is no more money.
Democrats, however, are governed by fantasy. The last thing they ever want to face is reality, and so they will do whatever it takes to try and convince the nation that fiscal suicide is “for the kids!”.
Unfortunately for them, a majority of Americans have awoken from their deep slumber and are wise to the Democrat’s game. People are sick and tired of being bullied by insincere, meaningless platitudes. Right now Tea Party people are mobilizing to counter-protest the thugish, infantile unions and Obamacrats. As Daily Caller reports:
Tea Party leaders are organizing a counter-rally in Madison, Wisc. to support newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker against the labor unions that have been protesting his proposed budget cuts all week. Conservative media guru Andrew Breitbart, possible 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain and other notables are en route to Madison for the counter-rally, scheduled to begin at noon central time on Saturday.
Go get-em boys!
Heroism in the works.
A new Republican hero is emerging: Gov. ScottWalker. If he stays strong and doesn’t buckle, his leadership will embolden Republican governors across the country. Texas Governor Rick Perry has already released a statement today in support of Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is in the middle of what will be a defining moment for our country and the conservative movement.
Governor Walker is directly confronting unsustainable state entitlements by asking government-sector unions to agree to reforms that would limit collective-bargaining for most government-sector employees to wages only, with wages capped to inflation. Under his proposal, union members would also have to vote every year to keep their union.
Rather than debate the measure Thursday, Wisconsin Democrat state senators fled the state while thousands of teachers in Madison and other cities called in sick at the urging of their labor union and forced entire school districts to be closed.
Even President Barack Obama’s political operatives have helped to orchestrate protests.
For Democrats, this is not about saving Wisconsin, or schools, or their jobs, and especially not “for the kids”. It’s about saving Barack Obama. It’s only suiting that the Democrat legislators fled to Chicago, the very city that spawned the Union Thug-in-Chief.
If Democrats fail in Wisconsin, a blue state, they know their leader is in trouble. Obama knows this, too, which is why his people are mobilizing surrounding states for protests to keep the fiscal-conservative contagion in check.
Michelle Malkin has the lowdown on what Scott Walker is trying to achieve:
State government workers in the Badger State pay piddling amounts for generous taxpayer-subsidized health benefits. Faced with a $3.6 billion budget hole and a state constitutional ban on running a deficit, new GOP Gov. Scott Walker wants public unions to pony up a little more. He has proposed raising the public employee share of health insurance premiums from less than 5 percent to 12.4 percent. He is also pushing for state workers to cover half of their pension contributions. To spare taxpayers the soaring costs of Byzantine union-negotiated work rules, he would rein in Big Labor’s collective bargaining power to cover only wages unless approved at the ballot box.

As more Americans learn of this very reasonable and moderate intention, support for the Liberal crybabies will shrivel up. They know this, and so they will use any means possible to distract the American people.
Democrats also believe that by tying their temper tantrum to the so-called Egyptian ‘revolution’, and Walker to Mubarak, this will somehow endear them to people in Wisconsin and across the country. Yes, Liberals are that moronic.
As Stacy McCain puts it:
The unemployed, the under-employed and regular folks trying to pay their bills aren’t likely to have a lot of love for people who (a) have jobs, (b) work at taxapayer expense, (c) get paid more money than the average taxpayer, and (d) go on strike because they don’t want to pay a dime toward their own generous benefits.
Unlike most other breaking crises, Obama wasted no time taking sides and pointing fingers. Protestors in Tehran, Libya, Bahrain, and Yemen can drop like flies by government bullets, and Obama will ignore them. But dare to challenge his union drones by merely asking that they pay their fare share, now this means war!
