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.

Real conservatives are cringing at the fact the establishment of the Republican Party have endorsed Mitt Romney as their guy. Looking at his record as Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt wasn’t really that conservative. He passed RomneyCare which ObamaCare was tailored after. He raised (taxes) fees equaling $730 million dollars his first year in office while running his election campaign stating he would not raise taxes if elected.
As candidate for governor he stated he was Pro choice as women should be able to “preserve and protect” their right to choose. He also stated “I will not create jobs that kill people” referring to PG&E company under attack for not cleaning up and creating a safe environment for the workers and citizens of the state.
Mitt did some good as the Governor by cutting the budget and spending to help reduce the billions of dollars in deficits he inherited from the prior administration. This was done with a majority of Democratic leaders in the State Legislature, a feat that would seem impossible today.
With that said, real conservatives are for Ron Paul, not Mitt Romney. So as the Republican Party Convention edges closer and closer to Tampa Ron Paul announced a new strategy a few days ago as he moves forward with his bid for the White House. With funding difficult to capture the Paul campaign will quit spending on media advertising throughout the rest of the campaign. Instead they will attempt to secure enough delegates in each state to head to Tampa and vote for him if Romney does not receive the required votes for nomination on the first go around.
Just a few weeks ago, the Central Committee arm of the Republican Party informed the leaders of the Nevada GOP they will not be allowed at the convention in Florida if Paul supporters are the majority of delegates sent to Tampa.
The Republican base nationally are outraged and want Mitt as their man and went as far as to send a letter to state officials of the Republican Party to stop the infiltration of Paul delegates or not be invited to the convention. O f course the letter is non binding as what the Paul campaign is doing is well within their rights.
By stacking the delegates in Tampa the Paul campaign wants an advantage no advertising expense can give you. If Romney doesn’t win the nomination on the first count those delegates committed to Paul can then vote for him during the second count.

With all that is happening in the Republican Party is Newt the one to lead our nation out of despair into prosperity? The polls from Iowa show Newt with a strong lead over Mitt Romney. Just a few months ago Newt Gingrich had no money, no support, no chance of being in the top 7 let along the number one spot. Today he leads 28 -12 in the Insider/Advantage poll conducted by Newsmax.
Ron Paul came in second with 13 points, one point ahead of Romney. The Republican voters in Iowa are making a statement against Mitt at this time. They don’t feel he is the candidate to beat President Obama. Talking to voters across the nation, the one thing they have in common, they don’t want a candidate that changes positions at every function he attends. That is what Mitt Romney represents to a large sect of voters.
In a Republican Forum held in Fairfax Virginia yesterday twelve individuals stated their views on all the candidates. Mitt was represented as a candidate that sways with the crowd and will say or do whatever the moment requires as a “Polished” candidate would. This stigma will follow Romney until Gingrich loses momentum as the most intelligent candidate with the solutions needed to lead our nation back into prosperity.
