Are American taxpayers finally waking up?

June 6, 2012

Are American taxpayers finally waking up? After the ballots were counted in Wisconsin last night it appears as if they are sending a new message that has been the topic of debate now for over 25 years shared by Representative Ron Paul (R) Texas, Stop spending what you don’t have.

Wisconsin voters now appear to believe in that message as they came out to have their voices heard in only one of three recall elections every held for a governor of a state.  Only this time, for the first time in history the governor elect survived the ordeal.  Governor Scott Walker (R) made a promise to the voters and followed through with it once sworn in.

What he did was to take Ron Paul’s position by limiting  governments ability to take from taxpayers and give to government employees. What Governor Walker did needed to be addressed due to the ever-increasing deficit the state was amassing.

The 3.5 billion dollar deficit was a detriment for survival of the state. What Mr. Walker did was to reduce the unions ability to continue to take from taxpayers hard earn income to give to public servant union members in way of benefits and health care.

Governor Walker demanded the legislature of Wisconsin to pass laws that addressed the issue.  Democrats dissappeared across state lines so they would not have to vote with hopes of stalling the process so union leaders would continue to fund their re-election campaigns.

The challenge was difficult, but true to his word Governor Walker continued to push for the employees paid by the tax payers of Wisconsin paid more into their healthcare and retirement programs.  By increasing members shares to pay for these benefits the deficit has been removed and will have a surplus of a few hundred million dollars by the end of his term.

Those in Washington should take heed as voters are frustrated with their elected officials who somehow still believe they know better how to spend our money.  Both Democrat and Republican representatives have created a national debt hovering around 16 trillion dollars and continuing to spend as Senator McCain said “Like drunken sailors”.

CBO  just released a report stating we now have a debt that is 70% of GDP for the first time since WWII.  The tread in Washington must stop and a new vision for America must take root.  Are Ron Paul’s positions finally taking hold with the American taxpayer? Let’s hope so as his reasoning is simple, get government out of the lives of the American people as people know better how to spend their money.

Recall election, what does it mean?

June 6, 2012

Governor Scott Walker (R) Wisconsin has become the third sitting governor to be involved in this type of effort.  If he wins he will be the only individual to survive the effort of those who brought the signatures to the State Capital to start the process.

Just what does it mean for the state of Wisconsin and the Nation if in fact Scott Walker wins this recall election against Mayor Tom Barrett (D)?  This recall election will set a new stage for conservatives and fiscally responsible individuals who run for political offices in the future.

This recall election will bring change to this country that is sorely needed.  The handouts, entitlements, and public sector unions negotiating outrages benefit and retirement plans that any sound minded citizens realizes can not be sustained under any circumstance.

Those individuals working in the public sector were promised huge retirement benefits with little contributions from the recipients.  Many health plans had been funded by hard-working taxpayers and not the public sector union member.  The state of Wisconsin with Scott Walker at the helm said he would change the way contracts are established and individuals will be required to pay more of the price for all those benefits they receive.

The Governor should win with a huge margin as the opposition spent millions of dollars fighting his administration but are not citizens of the state so they will not have the impact they believe they need to oust the Republican Governor.
