Scott Walker’s one act union busting play is still drawing big crowds, despite the lack of organized labor’s presence in the country. Walker is so good what he does, he convinced statewide voters that his predecessor was the one who wiped out 130,000 jobs, and not the GOP’s free market disaster-the Great Recession.
The old “Special Interests” Switcheroo: Under the “job creator” banner, corporate special interests; lobbyist; think tanks; and John Birch Society/Federalist Society billionaire contributors have poured billions into campaigns; these special interests are the good kind, providing a solid message and helping bring about big GOP wins.
But the bad kind of special interests, the ones funding his opponents, doesn't work for Walker. They make his plans for a dictatorial one party takeover of the government a little harder.
“There was a group out of Washington — Washington-based special interests — who thought they could spend a lot of money and a lot of time in the state and somehow convince the people of this state to be against something,” Mr. Walker told hundreds of supporters at an exposition center at the State Fair Park.
Being “against something” will not be tolerated in a free society protected by the 1st Amendment.
Being "against something" like the Affordable Care Act, a minimum wage, pay equity, women’s choice, an actual immigration policy, fewer interventionist wars and environmental protection isn't really being “against something.” It’s just simple common sense to not like this stuff, right?
And while Walker let’s his multitude of angry, racist, bigoted special interests and corporate shills do all the dirty work, he’s got a friendly smile and concerned look on his face.
“I've got to tell you, I’m an optimist. I believed all along if we got a positive message out that in the end people of the state wanted to be for something not against something, and look what happened.”
The conservative voters lack of introspection and self-criticism will only move us closer to a new lower standard of living, one we’re already getting used to in the southern states.
With God on their side, even economically struggling states keep the faith in their governors:
“First off, I want to thank God,” Walker told a cheering crowd of more than 2,000.
Republican governors elected in 2010 that included Florida’s Rick Scott, Ohio’s John Kasich and Michigan’s Rick Snyder.
