Walker made the difference

It's been a rough few years in northeastern Wisconsin, but we are finally beginning to see some light. We're paying less in taxes this year, and after eight years of tax-and-spend (and then spend some more) liberals under Gov. Jim Doyle, no one thought we would see a tax cut again.

Can it be the politicians in Madison are finally working for us, instead of for special interests? Right or wrong, the Republicans took charge and made the hard choices on the new budget. Wisconsin is not only open for business, but back on the right path and headed in the right direction.

Thank you Gov. Walker, Sen. Lasee, and Rep. Bies.

If contemporary politicians were as honest as the Founding Fathers, I believe this declaration would get a majority of their signatures.

Declaration of Dependence

When in the course of elitist frustration it becomes necessary for the ruling class to dissolve the constitutional constraints which have rendered them subservient to the common people and to assume among the tyrants of the earth, the separate and equal suppression of our people to which the will of the State and of the State's legislature entitle them, a decent attempt at rationalization requires they should declare the causes which impel them to this power grab.

We hold these lies to be politically expedient to us, that all men are created equal but some are more equal than others, that they are endowed by the State with sundry rights, subject to the caprice of the legislature. Among these are free education, free housing, free health care, a subsidized hybrid car, a living wage and free birth control.

That to secure these rights, the State will confiscate the guns of the American citizen and the wealth of those that produce, deriving their just powers from the consent of a plurality of qualified voters as determined by ACORN.

Convenience, indeed, will dictate that this State, newly established, shall not be challenged for light and transient causes such as liberty and self-determination; and, accordingly, all experience hath shown that freedom is insufferable to the ruling elite. So, when a long train of advancements, pursuing invariably the same object of individual freedom and happiness evinces a design to reduce the State to a condition of mere servitude to the people, it is the ruling elites duty to throw off such pursuits of the individual, and to provide new guards for their future subjugation.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these elitists; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present American Republic is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations of State power, all having in direct object the establishment of absolute freedom from tyranny.

We have sent hither swarms of bureaucrats to harass, bully and intimidate, yet our repeated efforts have been answered only by the obstinate behavior of free men. A people, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define an American Patriot, needs to be taught a lesson. We must, therefore, hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in freedom, in chains servants.

We, therefore, the self anointed elite of the Ruling Class, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the mainstream media for the distortion of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of our own hubris, solemnly publish and declare, that these United States are, and if they swallow this, ought to be, subservient to the Central Government, that they are absolved from all allegiance to any concept of States Rights, and that all divine connections between U.S. Citizens and freedom, is and ought to be, totally dissolved.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the timid acquiescence of the masses, we mutually pledge the vacuum of our honor and conscience.
