Letter: Recall election was a Jewish issue
July 1st, 2012
In response to the lead article in the June Chronicle, yes the recall election was a Jewish issue because Jews are supposed (under the mitzvah of tikkun olam) to leave the world in better shape than they found it.
Gov. Scott Walker’s win could be the harbinger of President Obama losing Wisconsin in November. It could also affect the U.S. Senate race and Congressional races, as Democratic candidates Tammy Baldwin and Gwen Moore have some of the worst voting records against Israel.
With the Walker win, our state is accelerating economic growth as the crippling uncertainty of this recall has been lifted. Walker has been doing everything differently then the President. Lower taxes and more jobs demonstrate that Walker’s medicine is efficacious.
Better still not one jurisdiction that followed Act 10 was forced to lay off anybody. Just look how bleak is the status of Illinois that instituted actions that came out of the Obama playbook.
The Democrats were in control of Congress a year before the 2008 election. The Democratic Senate has not passed a budget in three years. Well-informed people looking at today’s dismal employment figures understand that the Walker incentives are bucking the national trajectory.
The policies of our president are destroying confidence and thus accomplishing little that is positive. Walker’s adherence to capitalistic policies are on track to grow us out of this morass.
If Obama continues his trajectory, the U.S. economy will collapse. Sad to say, it follows that the world economy will accelerate into an economic abyss, bringing shared misery with equality.
The recall has taken a big toll on the growth of the Wisconsin economy. The naysayers started the mechanism for recall the day after Walker’s election. Milwaukee Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett never proposed any plan for our future and aptly demonstrated what his governance would look like. Just look at Milwaukee’s messes.
Let us embrace a system that has made our country the greatest in the history of the world. Let’s not imbibe the opiate of an unknown “change.”
