Coloradans will have the chance to head to the polls on September 10 to either re-elect or oust two Democratic state representatives who played an influential role in helping pass tough new gun-control laws back in March.
NY Mayor Bloomberg, and Colorado Democrats, are going to need a hug pretty soon. The recall petition against the State Senator who pushed gun control is a worrisome sign for anti-gun activists.
The Wisconsin recall election of Republican Gov. Scott Walker is not going quite like the unions and the Democratic Party expected. Back in 2011, many pundits thought that the governor had overreached when he took on public employee unions, restricting -- though not eliminating -- collective bargaining rights.
Well, I think he can relax. Pretty sure, actually.
North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue spoke for many politicians on Sept. 27 when she suggested suspending elections for Congress for two years to give them a free hand without voter input.
Recall began as a progressive idea around the turn of the 20th Century, when the villains were law makers in the pockets of the “robber barons” who controlled large banks, railroads and oil. Today’s robber baron is the massive government/union axis that sucks money from the private sector and which always –always--wants more.
Democrats were remarkably unprepared for the discontent that dislodged them from running the U.S. House last year, a sentiment that began in the summer of 2009. Pete Sessions, the Texas congressman charged with retaining today’s Republican majority, says he will not repeat that mistake.
