Almost everyone who follows politics for a living will agree that the recall battle in Wisconsin is a great foreshadowing of the presidential campaign.
If Scott Walker survives the June 5 vote, he will have shown that a principled, transparent and enthusiastic defense of a reform agenda can turn aside even the most mnassive smear campaign orchestrated and richly funded by a combination of the DNC, Big Labor and every left wing special interest at work in America today.
Wisconsin is the warm-up contest for the themes of the presidential election, and right now Scott Walker is winning, but he needs help. Democrats are indeed dispirited and have fallen to pointing fingers at each other. There is a lot of anger among the left because they are on the brink of losing their central argument on a very public stage. Walker is winning because Walker's policies are right, and the Wisconsin electorate knows that all the charges of nightmare cuts and a meltdown of the essential public services haven't come true and aren't going to come true.
All that Scott Walker needs now is sufficient funding to turn back the last, desperate wave of attack ads and panicked, indeed almost frenzied negative campaigning. Go to this button and send him some help this weekend. Whether it is $5, $50, $100 or $500, help Scott Walker prove that the country has indeed woken up to the threat of special interst looting of the public treasury, to the deeply immoral demands of public sector labor unions for lifetime deals and comfy retirements at the expense of private sector workers of every age and income bracket.
Sanity has to return to the public sector, and not in the form of massive tax hikes and still more job-killing fees and rate hikes. So please help send a message that can not be ignored. Support Scott Walker this weekend.
