Conservatism Rules!

  The sun is shining, the birds are chirping! What a great day for freedom, liberty, and Conservatism!
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker soundly defeated Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett for the second time in as many years in what was a Gubernatorial recall election with national implications and a lot of national attention. Walker finished with 53% of the vote to Barrett's 46%. A recount-proof, fraud-proof margin.
  Walker's victory last night was a referendum on so many levels. For too long, Liberal Democrats have had the advantage over Republicans when it came to Grassroots organizing and Get Out The Vote campaigns. Sure, they have been able to motivate all those convicted felons and dead people like no other group, but Conservatives proved to themselves and to the nation that we also, are now Community Organizers. The Democrats will whine about how they were outspent, but it is boots on the ground that got 36% of Union households to vote for Walker.
  Last night was also a big referendum on the scope of power and influence of Public Sector Unions. Big Labor Union bosses have had such an incestuous relationship with the Democratic Party. They have deposited millions of dollars into the hands of Democrats, and no longer represent the interests of their rank and file members. In return, they have gotten huge pension and benefit plans that taxpayers have footed the bill for. Is it any wonder that non-Union working people, who make up 93% of the work force in Wisconsin, and who contribute a portion of their earnings to their own benefits finally snapped and demanded the same from Union members who are a mere 7% of the workforce?
  And it is a HUGE referendum on Barack Obama, and his big government bloated policies. Obama was nowhere to be found in Wisconsin to lend support to Tom Barrett. Do doubt, not wanting to be associated with a campaign that, in the last few weeks, did not look good politically for Democrats. With friends like Obama to throw you under the bus, well, you know the rest. He did find time the night before the election to shoot an encouraging tweet Barrett's way.
  Since he took office in 2010, Scott Walker has taken Wisconsin from a $3.6 billion dollar deficit, to a $275.1 million dollar surplus without raising taxes. Wisconsinites know that fiscal responsibility is the only answer for their state. They have seen it work. Now, the rest of the country needs to wake up and realize that America is going down the same hole that Wisconsin has been rescued from.
  Liberals will of course try to spin the message of this election, and just generally throw a giant temper tantrum. The way they usually do when they don't get their way. DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz recently blathered on about how this election was a "dry run" for November.
You bet it is Deb!
