I try to stay focused on Arkansas politics because I realize that to be the most effective I have to concentrate where I have the most influence. Having said that this ordeal in Wisconsin is really at the core of the challenges that face American in every state.
Don't you find it funny that folks screaming "Freedom, Democracy, Union" are literally blocking and preventing the process from happening? Democratic Senators have fled the democratic process?
Does it say anything about the Teacher's Unions favorite mantra "it's about the children" when teachers and administrators have shut down schools to get their way?
I mean shouldn't union dues be voluntary? Should the state be in the business of collecting them?
State budgets are faltering because collective bargaining tactics are used to force extravagant pension and health benefits. Do we want unions to have this sort of power?
Seems to me that union bosses in WI are frantic because they know their hand has be revealed. They know that Americans, by in large, are screaming for reforms, transparency and accountability.
Arkansans should look long and hard at the example WI legislators are setting and perhaps adopt Governor Scott Walker's reforms for our state.
Americans For Prosperity and American Majority will join forces again along with thousands of conservative activist to stand in support of Governor Walker (details here and here)
If you wanna know the nitty gritty details, I encourage you to read Michelle Malkin's blog she has followed the story rather closely.
GET INFORMED AND ENGAGED~ You matter and TOGETHER we are making a HUGE difference~
Oh, and yes Max, my lexicon for Governor Walker would be "Champion of Liberty".
