Good news, bad news

The good news is that big unions at the national and state level are preparing to drain their checkbooks this year in Wisconsin recall campaigns.

The bad news is that big unions are preparing to drain their checkbooks this year in Wisconsin recall campaigns.

No, that’s not a typo. It’s both good and bad news that Wisconsin continues to be the ground on which pivotal battles will be fought.  Liberals, literally from coast to coast, are fretting that they might be squandering money in their attempt to take over this state—money they’d otherwise be spending in this fall’s attempt to entrench their collectivist takeover of the whole country.

We first heard that story last summer. Now it’s been repeated in a Washington, D.C. publication that’s pretty friendly toward Liberals.

The normal people of Wisconsin have been presented with a challenge they never asked for: to stand in defense of the kind of government reforms that were needed to rescue this state from bankruptcy—and that are still needed to rescue the whole nation from bankruptcy.  It is a sobering challenge and a deadly serious one.

It’s encouraging to know the reforms that triggered this battle are working and that it’s being noticed.

It’s a rare thing to recognize a decisive moment in history before it occurs. And recognizing such a moment, few might relish the prospect of being personally caught up in it—until after the fight’s over and they’ve won. Of course there’s always the little matter of having to win.
