Wisconsin Sheds Shackles

   Posted by: Interceder   in Interceder's Thoughts

Did you watch MSNBC as State Representative Julie Lassa (D) made her statement that the State Senate circumvented the Democratic process in voting to limit collective bargaining rights for the state’s union workers?

Another Wisconsin State Senator, Coggs (D), says the Republicans “stole democracy.” Senator Peter Barca says the people were cheated and “tomorrow they are going to go to work.”

Senator Mark Miller says the Republicans “took away rights from the people.” It seems the rights of the people would actually be more violated by an elected official who refuses to be available to do the job for which they were elected.

Maybe one of the issues which really needs to be defined is, who is the public, who are the people of Wisconsin? Hopefully there will be a distinction between those who are paying into the public fund in the form of taxes and those who are being paid from the tax fund. Whose rights are of primary concern, the tax payers or the tax receivers?

MSNBC, being who they are, of course supports the Democrats who so cowardly refused to deal with the voting process for over 3 weeks. The only time MSNBC supports anything Constitutional is when someone has subverted it by refusing to perform their electoral processes. The Democrats are being praised for” fighting the rights of the workers.” Where have they been for 3 weeks? Who took away the rights of the people, those who voted or those who were missing? Which workers are they most interested in serving, the workers paying taxes or the workers who are extorting money from the state in their receipt of tax money.

It should be truly interesting to see how the voters in Wisconsin react. Will they actually support the non-performing Democratic Senators? The hope for the state should be that the voters will support those who have decided to do something about an ever expanding, over expensive government.

Will America see past the rhetoric and realize these statements are coming from a batch of Senators who belong to the Democratic Party who deserted the state assembly to avoid voting on the bill? Which is more democratic, to vote on a controversial decision, or to abandon your elected position in a time of crisis? Which set of voters is truly in charge? Is it the voters who are actually paying taxes, or is it the voters who are usurping the money paid into the tax coffers of the state, the state’s union members.

When will America realize that Wisconsin has now shown the courage to do what must be done in every governmental entity, make government smaller.
