When Robert E. Lee was forced to turn back and retreat from Pennsylvania ending his dream of winning the Civil War by invading the North it quickly became clear that he had thrown his best punch and failed. Lee almost won but didn’t. While the Confederates won some major battles after Gettysburg their will to fight and the appetite for loaning them money was gone.
Yesterday the Wisconsin Democrats brought their invasion to Republican held State Senate districts. To turn back the tide of conservatism in Wisconsin the Democrats instigated recall elections of six Republican Senators. They almost won enough seats to make a difference but didn’t.
They needed to take three seats to wrest control of the State’s upper chamber from the Republicans, but they failed. Gettysburg has come for Wisconsin’s Democrats which is fitting since most Confederates were Democrats as well.
Why the Democrats lost
The Democrats’ lost because they represent a failed system of never ending tax increases to support special interest groups such as public employee unions and illegal aliens. They lost because they support endless extensions to food stamp and unemployment benefits, and do so with an extremely smug sense of entitlement to our money.
They lost because the unions who were behind the recalls willing unmasked themselves as criminals who would use physical violence to maintain their racketeering enterprises.
The Democrats lost because the debt ceiling “fix” was so bad that its cause and effect to the destruction of the stock market is glowing in neon red.
Wisconsin’s Democrats met their Gettysburg because the power of free elections is stronger than the strength of voter fraud. They lost because voters looked at the wild mobs of young Blacks beating down peaceful White families at the Wisconsin State Fair and used their very first chance to vote against the party of Blacks.
The Democrats lost because truth and freedom can beat union corruption and big spending.
What the future holds
Next week there will be two more recall elections. In both cases incumbent Democrat Senators will be on the ballot. Given the defeat they suffered yesterday and the fact that the best they can do is break even by winning both races, it is a good bet they will lose one or both of these seats.
But, there is still more damaging news for the Democrats. According to reports they will have a rude surprise when Wisconsin’s redistricted maps are unveiled. Add this to the new Photo ID to vote law curtailing Democrat voter fraud and yesterday’s results were surly a Gettysburg type defeat for Wisconsin’s Democrats and their union masters.
