Republican Governor Scott Walker has pushed through a budget cutting measure that was part of his campaign in Wisconsin to bring fiscal responsibility to that State. Unfortunately the Left inside and outside of Wisconsin has teamed up with Big Unions to wage a disinformation campaign against Governor Walker and the State GOP to sidetrack fiscal responsibility in favor of budget busting power that force Wisconsin to raise taxes to keep benefits for government employees.
Now that sounds rough if you only listen to the Left and Unions; however the reality is Wisconsin State employees receive benefits that are above the private sector in that State. AND in talking benefits I am talking about perks other than wages. You see Governor Walker and the GOP did nothing that would affect State employee Unions to hamper their ability to bargain for fair wages commensurate to the employee personal income. Walker did not touch Collective Bargaining having to do with wages. Rather Walker on the GOP has taken away the Collective Bargaining for perks that have to do with vacation, insurance and so on. In doing so Walker has reduced the perk benefits to a point that is still better than private industry but less than the budget draining perks that Wisconsin was in.
If you listen only to the Democrat Left, Unions and Leftist Mainstream Media you would think that Walker and State Republicans have stolen democracy and pierced the heart of what State employees deserve. THAT IS A DISINFORMATION LIE FROM LEFTISTS AND UNIONS!
Amy Kremer of the American Grassroots Coalition has sent out an email that informs Conservatives that we are in a fight for the soul of America. She is correct. America has to choose between the Leftist spread the wealth mentality or government fiscal responsibility that does not cost taxpayers an arm and a leg that supports political interests that hamper free markets, individual responsibility, free choice and responsible taxation. The Left and self-aggrandizing power thug Unions do not responsible taxation and free choice that involves one’s personal livelihood and the spreading of society free choice (as opposed to forcing members of society to spread their earning – called wealth by Leftists – to pay money to undeserving exploitive people living off taxpayer bucks).

Last week, Wisconsin Governor Walker signed into law the union reform bill that Senate Democrats have been hiding from over the past several weeks. On Wednesday evening of last week, the Republicans removed the appropriation language from the bill and pass the union reform measures on their own. Then on Thursday, the Assembly passed the legislation as well. Friday morning, it was a done deal! This is a huge win, not only for the residents of Wisconsin, but for the people across America!
We thank Governor Walker and these Republican Senators for standing strong and not succumbing to the pressures of threats and intimidation from these unions. Over the last few weeks, Governor Walker and these conservatives have been under tremendous attack from the left. They have had the strength and political willpower to remain strong and stand on principle. When standing on principle, it is not always the easiest thing to do, but it is always the right thing to do. This is exactly what "We the People" want to see more of out of our elected officials.
Don't be fooled! This battle is far from over, but is only beginning. The public unions still have a strong grip of power and control in Ohio, Indiana and other states. Rest assured, they are not going to relinquish that grip without the fight of a lifetime. You see, this grassroots movement is a threat to the public union gravy trains and the golden parachute pension plans that they think they are entitled to at the expense of the taxpayer.
As I have said before, this battle is for the soul of America. The battle in Wisconsin will now go national and the money is already pouring into the state to recall the Republican Senators and potentially even the Governor. This is not a joke, but is very real.
This is the beginning of the 2012 campaign season and President Barack Obama's campaign arm is very much behind this effort. You can read here just what the President had to say about the Wisconsin battle.
Moveon.org is fully engaged in the recall effort in Wisconsin and is raising an enormous amount of money. You can see it for yourself right here.
You want to see just how much money the left is raising for this effort? Look at this one source and look at the money they are raising.
If you want a recap of the battle in Wisconsin, you can read the good, bad and the ugly in this article posted on Yahoo! News.
I know, it is a lot of bad news, but don't worry, we are not going away! Later this week, I am meeting with some of our coalition partners to see how we can all work together and win this war for America. I will keep you posted as things move forward and what our next steps are at American Grassroots Coalition.
We all must help the Senators and Governor in Wisconsin. I think it is safe to say that as goes Wisconsin, there goes America, so the fight is on friends.
I promise you that American Grassroots Coalition is in this for the long haul. We will be there to support these guys that are on the front lines being attacked and abused by the public unions, Moveon.org, and the Democratic Parties (State and National) as tough decisions are looming. We will not back down and we know that you won't back down either. Thank you for your support and standing with us.
This fight is for the soul of America! Thank you for fighting for her with us. Please help us by making the most generous contribution you can afford to the American Grassroots Coalition. No amount is too small and no amount is too large, but we cannot do this without your help.
We need your support now more than ever. Help us fight back against the Obama campaign team, Moveon.org, the Democratic Party, organized public unions and make the most generous contribution you can afford to American Grassroots Coalition.
No amount is too small. Please consider contributing $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or more to continue this fight against the big labor machine that wants to reelect Barack Obama. Yes, as I said, this is the beginning of the Presidential campaign of 2012.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. I know we can always count on our supporters.
Please share this email with others in your circle of friends, family, coworkers, etc.
God Bless America today and always! Keep up the fight! We are winning!
Co-Founder American Grassroots Coalition
