Do you sense that something special is happening in this country? Support for limited government looks to be on the rise in Wisconsin. The Obama campaignâ€™s attempts to attack free-market capitalism are falling flat. Weâ€™re encouraged! But weâ€™re not taking anything for granted. From the Wisconsin stretch run to new candidates adopting the 9-9-9 Economic Growth and Job Creation plan, weâ€™re working hard to put these principles into action every day to solve this nationâ€™s most pressing problems.
Every dollar you contribute helps us to get closer to that goal, so we thank you and encourage you to keep up your support â€“ even as we pledge to work harder than ever to achieve success!
Victory is Within Reach in Wisconsin
The polls in Wisconsin are encouraging for supporters of Gov. Scott Walker, with one this week showing him with a 12-point lead as we approach the June 5 recall election forced by backers of public employee unions in the state.
Weâ€™re feeling confident, but weâ€™re taking nothing for granted. Thatâ€™s why weâ€™ve offered our support to Gov. Walker, particularly in the form of two videos weâ€™ve produced that make the case whatâ€™s really at stake in Wisconsin.
You can see them by clicking the images below:
Donâ€™t underestimate whatâ€™s at stake in Wisconsin. Gov. Walker got the stateâ€™s fiscal house in order by finally standing up to public employee unions and putting their benefits in line with what private-sector workers make. In response to this, Wisconsin liberals went into a meltdown. Democrats in the State Senate actually fled the state â€“ holing up at a hotel in Illinois â€“ in an attempt to prevent a quorum and stop a final vote on the bill.
Protests by union supporters turned ugly, and of course the unions sought their revenge on Walker by collecting enough petition signatures to schedule a recall election. The polls donâ€™t suggest that the people as a whole agree with the union agenda. They suggest the people appreciate Walkerâ€™s leadership and commitment to fiscal responsibility.
But nothingâ€™s official until the June 5 recall election. Your financial support will help us to continue our backing of Gov. Walker as we head up to that crucial day. Thank you for standing with us in support of liberty and good government!
Forbes Reviewer Loves 9-9-9: An Army of Davids
Columnist Charles Kadlec this week offered an insightful review of Herman Cainâ€™s new book, co-authored by Rich Lowrie, 9-9-9: An Army of Davids.
Among Kadlecâ€™s comments was this observation:
â€œIn one of the most entertaining parts of the book, the authors capture the craziness of the current floating, paper dollar by asking the reader to imagine what the world would be like if the government could change daily the number of minutes in an hour.Â Life would be chaotic. But soon, the private sector would create an entire â€˜chaos industryâ€™ to help us cope with the uncertainty of time, just as we now must cope with the uncertainty of the value of the paper dollar.Â Before you know it, established media and intellectuals would be â€œsinging the praises of a floating hour and opine on the downright restrictive nature of the old barbaric systemâ€ under which people would be expected to arrive to meetings on time!
â€œIn a more serious vain, the benefits of a dollar as good as gold are reported:Â Higher economic growth, lower unemployment, stable prices, rising real wages and living standards, a less cyclical economy, and virtually no financial crises.Â The myths used by the defenders of the paper dollar also are dispelled, most importantly including the charges that the gold standard â€˜causedâ€™ the Great Depression, that it would restrict the ability of the economy to grow, and empower Wall Street and financiers to the disadvantage of Main Street and American families.â€
We agree with Mr. Kadlec â€“ of course! But so have many of you who have told us how much youâ€™ve enjoyed and appreciated the book. Have you ordered your copy yet? You can do so here.
Cain, Luntz and Hannity take center stage for election special
Herman Cain appeared Friday on a special edition of â€œHannityâ€ on Fox News Channel tonight. Along with host Sean Hannity, Cain joined popular political consultant and pollster Frank Luntz as they interacted with a focus group of Republican and Democratic voters.
A highlight of the lively hour, after listening to some impassioned back-and-forth about Mr. Cain’s perspective on the nation’s economy, came when Cain aptly pointed out that the remarks were based on emotion, and not fact. He emphasized how important it is to have facts when we head to the ballot box this fall!
Coming Up This Week
Herman Cain will be filling in for Neal Boortz on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and as always, you can hear him guest on the Boortz from 10:30 to 11 a.m. this Friday. (The show will be off for the Memorial Day holiday.)
Weâ€™ll let you know about other bookings as they happen. Have a great Memorial Day!
