Socialists In Wisconsin Should Be Recalled From Office

Fourteen Socialist State Senators in Wisconsin, who are still sitting in Illinois to prevent a vote on collective bargaining for public employee unions, should not only not be paid their salaries, these Senators should all be recalled from office. It is outrageous that these State Senators refuse to return to Wisconsin to their jobs, which is vote Yes or No on legislation put before them. Certainly, Republicans have been in the minority for years, while Socialists ran amok bankrupting our country, but Republicans have never practiced these silly antics when they did not have the votes to prevail.

This stunt just proves conclusively that Socialists, at both the state level and in Washington, are owned lock, stock and barrel by the public employee unions in a corrupt bargain that provides Socialist politicians with campaign funds in exchange for compensation and benefits for union employees that are bankrupting our country. Enough is enough. Republicans Governors around the country have it exactly right. Many states are facing bankruptcy because of all these back room deals with public employee unions over the years. There is no way to balance state budgets, or the federal budget, without bringing public employee union compensation and benefits in line with private sector pay. WE THE PEOPLE are stuck with high taxes so that these characters can continue feeding at the trough. It has got to stop.

What is particularly hard to take is the compensation and benefits going to many incompetent public school teachers, that produce among the poorest results in the industrialized world specific to student academic performance, not to mention bureaucrats who are retired in service. Many of these government employees do little or nothing in accordance with union rules and call it work. While there have been pay cuts and downsizing in the private sector, where in many cases employees are doing the jobs of two people, no such thing has happened with many government employees who are paid hefty salaries and provided with pensions far in excess of what is typical in the private sector. And, it is nearly impossible to FIRE government employees no matter how incompetent they may be. This is all ridiculous.

We have got to sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2014 to prevent the bankruptcy of our country. Common sense Civil Service Commissions, staffed by businessmen and women from the private sector should govern public employees. No one wants to pay government employees less than private sector employees; but neither should they be paid more than private sector employees doing the same jobs since it is private sector employees paying the taxes to pay public sector employees. And, the federal government has added more than 200,000 employees since Socialist President Obama was elected. We need to see elimination of many government programs, agencies and consolidation of cabinet departments, which should result in lay off's of public employees to get federal government expenses under control. Obama's annual trillion dollar plus deficits have got to stop.

We have to elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 committed to balanced budgets at the state and federal levels that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth in our country.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, public employee unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current and former Presidents, Congresses or the Courts. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin is to be applauded for holding firm related to reining in public employee unions. Collective bargaining and the right to strike should absolutely be eliminated for public employees. Finally, we are starting to see some brave politicians who get it. We need to elect more of them in 2012 and 2014 to take back our country to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
