There are two main fronts in the battle for America’s future right now. The first is the effort to make all Americans dependent on the federal government (and the ongoing effort against the initiative) through ObamaCare.
The second is now taking place in Wisconsin where Republican Governor Scott Walker is making a stand against belligerent public-employee unions. Sign a petition in support of Walker’s efforts here. The petition simply states:
Union dues should be voluntary, and the state should not be in the business of collecting them. Union certification should require a secret ballot. Collective bargaining should not be used to force extravagant pension and health benefits that cripple state budgets.
These common-sense reforms have made the union bosses desperate to disrupt Wisconsin government and overturn an election. They must not be allowed to succeed. In fact, every state should adopt Governor Scott Walker’s common sense reforms.
Simply put, allowing government workers to unionize and lobby the government puts taxpayers at a disadvantage because they don’t have a seat at the table. Politicians have strong incentives to cater to the highly-organized unions and the taxpayers are left in the cold. If states are going to avoid the economy-killing tax increases recently passed in Illinois, it looks like the battle will first be waged in Wisconsin.
