Yesterday, the people of Wisconsin made history by standing in defense of fundamental human rights.

Let that sentence sink in. It is no exaggeration. What was at stake in Tuesday’s recall election was nothing less than the economic freedom and the free speech and property rights of every honest citizen of this state.  They have been under assault for 16 months by people who would abridge those rights for their own gain.

With our own eyes, we’ve seen those rights under assault:

  • Children below grade-school age used as props in mass rallies by teachers and day-care workers;
  • Union thugs threatening to destroy honest businesses;
  • Drum-beating ignoramuses deliberately obstructing the lawful functions of government;
  • Physical intimidation of innocent citizens by obscenity-shrieking mobs.

Allowing those mobs to control the governor’s office would have caused serious people to fear for the future of civil society and the rule of law in Wisconsin.  Courage was on the ballot Tuesday and courage won, as the good people of Wisconsin faced down the thugs and bullies and drew a line they are not permitted to cross.
