(CNS) “U.S. Debt Jumped $72 Billion Same Day U.S. House Voted To Cut Spending $6 Billion”
(The Weekly Standard) “Mandatory Spending To Exceed All Federal Revenues—50 Years Ahead Of Schedule”
(Reuters) “Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner Said On Wednesday That There Was No Alternative Except For Congress To Raise The Debt Ceiling So That Government Can Keep Borrowing”
Unlike the federal government, by law, states must balance their budgets. More than one-half the states have some form of “collective bargaining reform” on the table. The Ohio governor is following the Wisconsin blueprint and Indiana’s Democrats are imitating Wisconsin Democrats by hiding out in Illinois.
The Wisconsin State Journal examined emails received by Walker and reported only 32 percent of Wisconsin voters expressed disapproval and 62 percent supported Gov. Walker’s actions.
The hyper-sensitive Progressives, in denial and throwing angry temper tantrums, are attempting to subvert the will of Wisconsin’s majority by demanding recall elections. Forcing us to spend even more while Scott Walker is working hard to save, they show their true character. Bringing in thugs, such as the New York Teamsters, they are trying to intimidate voters and sway public opinion. The results will only serve to divide our state’s residents even more.
Many can now see the truth of what is coming down the road. As things continue to unravel and we are challenged even more, most of us will come to the realization of the importance and effectiveness of the meaning of “local.” The only way we will stop the federal government’s insanity is by focusing on local, state, county, city and township governments, and exercising those rights and accountability provided by our constitution.
In such an environment, it might be best if we rediscover the true meaning of “Love thy neighbor” to succeed.
