I LOVE it when Conservative/Republican philosophy succeeds where years of Socialist/Democratic philosophy has failed. Thanks so Walker, Wisconsin is seeing a tremendous turnaround.
By virtually every objective measure, Walker has been an extraordinarily successful governor. In just 16 months, the state has erased a $3.6 billion budget deficit, and according to figures released this month by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, it will have a $154.5 million surplus on June 30, 2013. Property taxes, which had risen by more than 40 percent since 1998, are down for the first time in years. The unemployment rate is down from 7.7 percent when Walker took office in January 2011 to 6.7 percent in April 2012. Last week, the state’s Department of Workforce Development released numbers showing that Wisconsin had gained some 23,000 jobs in 2011—correcting a misleading earlier report suggesting the state had lost more than 30,000 jobs over the same period. The subjective measures look good for Walker, too. On the stump, Walker is fond of citing Chief Executive magazine, which had ranked Wisconsin as the 41st-best state for business in 2010 and now ranks it 20th. Walker also points to a survey by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce that found only 10 percent of business owners thought the state was headed in the right direction in 2010, while an eye-popping 94 percent think so today.
We've seen it time and time again. Communism/Socialism is a FLAWED and FAILED model. Name ONE country where it has succeeded. If you say China you need to go live over there for a year, as a citizen not an ex-pat.
Yet time and time again, liberals will completely ignore FACTS and spout emotion fueled ignorant talking points to support their failed philosophy.
I hope Walker wins by a landslide, and that carries on in to November.
