I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Scott, Michelle, Tracy, Rob, Steve, and John and others don’t be one issue voters
Question to ask yourself is:
Will Tom Barrett be better for Wisconsin as Governor or is Scott Walker? Take out your personal feelings, take out your personal grievances, and look at the big picture.
Know that Act 10 is here to stay and electing Barrett will not change that, to think otherwise is foolish. Barrett is not serious to restoring it nor is he going to be able to pass it in the legislature. So move beyond it, Barrett has so you should too!
Even as liberal as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is they are endorsing Governor Walker where in 2010 they endorsed Barrett because they feel Walker should get to finish out his term and the recall isn’t right!
What makes Barrett the one to end this “civil war” when it is his side that started it? Why is it only if he and his side wins it will end? Because it won’t. It would empower them and more recalls in the future will happen. Now I know yesterday I said it would if they win, but an astute friend pointed out my error to me and he is correct!
When you find a bully such as the public sector union bosses, you confront a bully, not give the bully what they want. You don’t reward the bully.
Governor Walker and the Republican legislature won in 2010 and the voters put them in power and if you didn’t like it there is 2014. But no, the temper tantrum union bosses want a do over now instead of waiting as the Republicans did in Wisconsin in 2006 with Doyle and his total control of the legislature. Know why? Because the money they are losing and money is power and the union bosses don’t like losing it! They don’t care about the workers and if you believe that they do you are naïve to say it nicely. The union bosses just care about the union dues and the influence the money can buy!
Elections are about voting FOR something.
There is no "I hate Walker" box to check.
Voters have a choice between keeping taxes low with Scott Walker or raising them with
Tom Barrett who has raised them every year he was in office until Walker with Act 10 made him freeze them or ask the public via referendum.
The choice is clear.
Lower taxes Walker/Kleefisch
Higher taxes Barrett/Mitchell
Going forward Walker/Kleefisch
Going backwards Barrett/Mitchell
Taxpayers in control Walker/Kleefisch
Union Bosses in control Barrett/Mitchell
Mahlon Mitchell was for Act 10 last year
