Everyone watched the unions throw tons of money to recall Gov. Walker but it was self serving…..for the unions. Their display of unruly thugs, trashing the state house during their protest, as well confronting bystanders with fights and hatred speech, left a scene in peoples minds. An ugly scene with no outcome to benefit ALL the people in some way. Scott Walker has turned Wisconsin around and helped it move toward prosperity again. That recall didn’t work because there was no good reason for it and Wisconsinites won.
In another state, acting much like our liberal neighbor to the north-Maryland, Colorado went fear mongering about guns when there was a tragic occurrence in a movie theater. The Dems decided the peoples rights were negotiable and passed onerous gun laws to curtail freedoms. Who did something about it? Grassroots Tea Party people, along with the NRA, put forth petitions for recall of two Dem senators……..in a Dem state and district. What was their magic in doing this? Logic and freedom. They felt they were not being represented fairly. The two Dems were recalled and GONE! That is what is known as a “wake up” call. I don’t believe these gun control measures will last very long, especially after the next state elections. Of course, it could have all been avoided if the people KNEW who and what they were electing in the first place. I kinda think that more people will be paying attention during the next campaign season.
Will this recall behavior spread? I guess it all depends on how much more Dems and Repubs screw up and when voters finally say “that’s enough”. With wieners, liars, losers, pussies, and other slime running peoples lives, this may become the new tool to help save freedoms. I would think that people would just do their homework. My fingers are still crossed on that one.
