The ideological battle has begun. The protests in Wisconsin and now spreading to Ohio are just the beginning of what I see as the long overdue confrontation between conservatives and liberals—Capitalism vs. Socialism.
The election in November gave the Republicans a majority in the House, the place that controls the purse strings. True to their word they are clamping down on the runaway spending that has driven this country to the verge of ruin. The states also gained a clear conservative majority in their statehouses and 10 Republican governors won election replacing Democratic incumbents.
First on the agenda for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is to reign in the unions. I have said it here many times trial attorneys and unions are killing America. Reform and outright banishment are the only sane courses of action.
Watching the news last night and listening to members of the teacher’s union in Wisconsin caterwauling about Scott’s move to de-fang the union made my blood boil. One woman claimed it was a direct attack on her family and he was ‘sticking a knife in her back.’ I have no sympathy for you lady. You do not contribute to your own pension, pay towards any health insurance coverage and have insanely liberal benefits that no one else in the private sector could ever get. What makes you so damn special? Nothing.
First and foremost all federal and state employees must be denied the right to unionize. The quid pro quo between liberal politicians and the unions must be denied. It is an advantage no other citizen of this country enjoys and therefore must be eliminated.
Conservative politicians have to stand firm and call out those who stand in the way of the free market. If large sectors of the various unionized workforces go on strike, so be it. There is no better time to stand up to them than when unemployment is ‘officially’ at 9.0% and ‘unofficially’ closer to double that. It will get ugly and the MSM will work as hard as they can against us. We conservatives will be labeled cold-hearted and mean. I don’t care. It’s called tough love. It’s time to take America back for the winners and stop rewarding the losers. If we stay resolute in our actions we will win. Do not be afraid. The truth will set us free.
