The circus that is Wisconsin continues and it seems be what is constantly filling the majority of the news outlets. The result of decades of overspending without thought or regard to future consequences eventually must be reckoned with. For so long the unions in states like Wisconsin have kept them in a chokehold and have both bullied and bribed their way through proceedings until they’ve gotten their way.
However, we are in a new day in America. Many have woken up and are realizing what has happened during their long nap. States are broke. The coffers are empty. The legislatures are corrupt. All results of greedy self-interest groups who have been running the show. The people have spoken, elected new leaders and those leaders, like Governor Walker, are making changes that they promised during their campaigns and this has these long-entrenched unions and interest groups completely up in arms. And just who are the puppets of these interest groups all over our great country? Why, it is the Democrats. They sit on the long arm of the SEIU and have done their bidding for decades and decades and decades. And while in many cases they’ve sat in the chairs of power and have been these puppets- I can assure you that it has been a mutually benefited relationship between the two.
We’ve watched ugly pictures unfold and corruption exposed from all manners of government and even the private sector. Teachers have manipulated students into protesting -without them even understand what they were protesting or why they were there- but simply used as bodies and fillers for the news cameras. Corrupt doctors have participated by writing fraudulent excuse notes for teachers who want to protest but refuse to sacrifice a day of unpaid leave. The White House has been involved through the “Organizing for America” democratic arm and has been orchestrating a lot of the activity. The SEIU protesters have taken on a mob-like mentality that has been disgustingly abusive towards anyone who disagrees.
Michelle Malkin sums up the situation quite succinctly this way:
Faced with stifling debt, bloated pensions and intractable government unions, liberal Midwestern legislators have fled those states — paralyzing Republican fiscal reform efforts. Like Monty Python’s Brave Sir Robin and his band of quivering knights, these elected officials have only one plan when confronted with political hardship or economic peril: Run away, run away, run away.
Scores of Fleebagger Democrats are now in hiding in neighboring Illinois, the nation’s sanctuary for political crooks and corruptocrats. Soon, area hotels will be announcing a special discount rate for card-carrying FleePAC winter convention registrants. Question: Will the White House count the economic stimulus from the mass Democratic exodus to Illinois as jobs “saved” or “created”? More important question: How much are taxpayers being charged for these obstructionist vacations?
Voters have spoken: In Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and across the heartland, they put Republican adults in charge of cleaning up profligate Democrat-engineered messes. Instead of defending their same old tax-hiking, union-protecting, spending-addicted ways, Democrats are crossing their state borders into big government sanctuary zones — screaming “la, la, la, we can’t hear you” all the way.
It has become the new standard of American democracy. If you can’t win in the voting booths or through state house votes- than you simply obstruct the process.
