Walker is standing against the assault on conservative values, which includes helping people bear their own responsibilities. As Front Line Strategies consultant Matt Langston explained this past week, "Walker is on the front lines of the fight for free markets instead of free lunches." He is a GOP leader and model in his stand for fiscal frugality, jobs, fair labor policy and the core beliefs and practices of Reagan conservatives.
So why, then, are big-name Democratic elites, such as Bill Clinton and other liberals, seeking to recall Walker? For the exact reasons I mentioned above. Simply put, Walker has consistently and adamantly opposed big government and special interest solutions to fix Wisconsin.
But there's a bigger reason that Clinton came out to Wisconsin to engage in the battle to recall Walker: Democrats, liberals and progressives know that as Wisconsin goes Tuesday, so possibly goes the nation in November. They fear that a win for Walker would contribute to conservative momentum that ultimately would lead to President Barack Obama's defeat in his campaign for re-election. And they're right.
Though the fight for conservatives doesn't start and stop in Wisconsin, it's an O.K. Corral of sorts for Democrats and liberals. When their groundless recall of Walker is shot down, a potent statement will be sent across our land about the type of government we the people want.
Walker's recall is not just about Wisconsin; it is about national reform. It's about living within our means. It's about taking back our republic. It is about saving our nation and posterity, one election and state at a time.
That is why Walker himself recently appealed to patriots across his state and our country. He wrote this:
"For more than a generation in Wisconsin, the power of special interests and the liberal elite have gone largely unchecked. My Administration finally stood up to them, and we changed the way we do things in government in Wisconsin.
"That's why my opponents are so desperate to defeat me in this Recall. They want to roll back the clock and take us back to the days of skyrocketing taxes, bloated budgets, and unchecked and unaccountable spending. We cannot let that happen."
Gov. Walker, I agree, and so do multitudes of other patriots across your state and this nation.
The last thing Wisconsin and our republic need is another tax-and-spend liberal in charge of the state. And if the far left is able to recall Gov. Walker, it could open the floodgates, causing more such recalls to sweep the country.
That is why my wife, Gena, and I are encouraging everyone to vote for the incumbent, Scott Walker, for governor of Wisconsin.
If you know people in Wisconsin, call them today and give them reasons they should vote for Walker. Also, please immediately post Walker's social networks on your Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts by going to http://www.scottwalker.org/content/social-networks-0. We have no time to lose.
Ronald Reagan was right: "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well-taught lessons of how they, in their lifetime, must do the same."
