Who Badgers The Nineteen?

Unified patriots must stand firm against all the forces of the Left being brought to bear on behalf of public sector union rule.

We have the votes in Wisconsin to begin the razing of government as fundraiser for the Democratic Party. We have the votes to welcome millions of Americans to the America where taxpayers don’t subsidize early retirement just in time for them to share in the suffering caused by their rotten nest eggs. Charles Krauthammer captures the significance of the moment:

Recognizing this threat to union power, the Democratic Party is pouring money and fury into the fight. Fewer than 7 percent of private-sector workers are unionized. The Democrats’ strength lies in government workers, who now constitute a majority of union members and provide massive support to the party. For them, Wisconsin represents a dangerous contagion.

Hence the import of the current moment – its blinding clarity. Here stand the Democrats, avatars of reactionary liberalism, desperately trying to hang on to the gains of their glory years – from unsustainable federal entitlements for the elderly enacted when life expectancy was 62 to the massive promissory notes issued to government unions when state coffers were full and no one was looking.

Obama’s Democrats have become the party of no. Real cuts to the federal budget? No. Entitlement reform? No. Tax reform? No. Breaking the corrupt and fiscally unsustainable symbiosis between public-sector unions and state governments? Hell, no.

 
We have the votes of a Wisconsin electorate that made a knowing choice in favor of the anti-public sector union policies of Governor Scott Walker, who seems impervious to the public pressure.

But what about his Republican Party cohorts in the state senate? What sorts of pressures are they under? (Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, pictured)

I think we need to encourage them daily. They need to remember the mass demonstration on Election Day and not fear the demonstrations in the streets of Madison.

We the People must have victory in Wisconsin.

It has been reported that some Republican senators meeting with some ex-patriot Wisconsin Democratic party senators now living in Illinois are considering one concession to let the Dems save face by agreeing to let union re-certifications last for two years at a time instead of one.

I could live with that, but they must continue to insist upon majority votes of the members to re-certify and the state must end all collection of union dues.

The combination of the debt crisis, non-recovery, and destructive policies of ObamaDems have America at a crossroads with major battles being fought everyday that are last chances to avoid the deluge. Maybe it’s already too late and it’s all damage control and more poverty-and-suffering character tests.

But within “damage control”, there is bad, very bad, and death.

Bad is better, but to secure a mere bad future requires that we win the battles against public sector unions up north and out west and win the battle for Boehner’s brain and our wallets in D.C.

  1. One of the most painful things I learned as a Platoon Sergeant in the US Army was triage. When faced with large numbers of casualties, divide them into 4 categories using DIME as an acronym, then take appropriate action. DIME broke my heart, I was expected to make those kind of decisions? D – Delayed (transport to the next level of care can be delayed) I – Immediate (these folks must be transported NOW) M – Minimal (these folks may not need transport) and the one I never wanted to face, E – Expectant (expect this kid to die). Where does your State stand?
