LETTER: Recall election will reinforce Walker policyIt is reported that Scott Walker received more votes in his primary race than the two top Democrat contenders combined, which still begs the questions: Do we still need an expensive recall election? The answer is yes.
To the Editor:
It is reported that Scott Walker received more votes in his primary race than the two top Democrat contenders combined, which still begs the questions: Do we still need an expensive recall election? The answer is yes.
When Walker wins the recall election he will have been handed a mandate to continue the policies he has initiated. Winning a second election will be a stamp of approval to the policies he has set about to rein in the proliferate over spending and over reaching we’ve experienced from previous administrations and legislatures. It will give him a license from the electorate to reach even further to return the state of Wisconsin to policies that benefit all of its citizens and not just a well-organized few who feel they deserve more and better than their neighbors.
Walker’s re-election will not only benefit those inside our borders but nationwide as well. While our mainstream media has done its best to hide it, other states have either already passed similar measures or are attempting to.
When Walker wins the re-election it will signal to other governors that there is an electorate behind them that resents the greed and abuse of an organized few willing to stomp on the rest of us to force through policies that threaten to bankrupt us. Other governors will look to Wisconsin for ways to insure sustainable public policy and spending. Even the Libs like Cuomo in New York and Brown in California are looking for ways to rein in the beast they created. Their glad-handing and unsustainable giveaways have come back to bite them now that it’s time to pay out the promises they’ve made.
Walker’s re-election sad to say, is payback to those who thumbed their noses at the electorate as they dug deeper into its pocketbook for their pay raises and benefit packages.
Finally, Walker’s re-election should re-enforce out election process. We were not deceived by a charlatan. We intended to elect a manager who would get our house in order.
Hopefully there will be some changes made in our recall provisions so that a well-funded, well-organized entity can’t “buy” the election results it wants. The massive amount of money spent on normal elections is bad enough. To spend not only a special interest’s millions, but public money to overturn a legally elected official in the manner we’ve seen attempted here in Wisconsin these last months is criminal. It is good to see it defeated. My only regret is that those who caused the problem to begin with will not be called to account.
