As many of you know, I supported Gov Scott Walker as the GOP nominee for President. I felt and still do feel, that Gov Walker was the most qualified candidate of the bunch, especially in his understanding of the Economy and standing up for average Americans against Big Union – Big Government types. Governor Walker had specific plans for a variety of the issues our Nation faces. He developed an alternative, free-market plan to replace the oppressive ObamaCare. He had a plan to return government power back to where it rightly belonged, to the States and ultimately, the people. He supported and defended the Constitution. He understood the real threat posed to our Nation by the murderous bunch known as ISIS and other muslim extremists organizations. And he would have stood up to that threat! Governor Walker actually had a Day One Plan which laid out all he would accomplish.
Governor Walker stood up to union thugs and bullies in his home state of Wisconsin and managed to work to get legislation passed and signed to make Wisconsin a Right to Work State. He also worked to pass and sign legislation to defund the evil Planned Parenthood, years before it became today’s battle cry. He turned the State of Wisconsin around; one that was on the edge of complete collapse to a prosperous state, where property taxes were lower than they had been in decades. Governor Walker had a love of Country that few possessed and in his career, thought rarely of himself. He was a devout man who sought the advise and counsel of our Lord and Savior before making crucial decisions.
Why don’t many people know this? Governor Scott Walker was the best kept secret in our Country. The Governor did not brag of his accomplishments, he just quietly set to work. Unfortunately, the celebrity and reality tv obsessed media chose instead to focus their energy, resources and broadcast time playing up a narcissistic, blowhard reality tv star playing as a presidential candidate instead of focusing on real issues and people who could solve them. Ultimately, Governor Walker, along with Governor Rick Perry were sacrificed on the altar of celebrity and applause lines, on shallowness over substance; where candidates who sound good, who bring out the worst in people are praised, while candidates with the best ideas and love of country are tossed aside like yesterday’s trash.
Governor Walker did the honorable and noble thing yesterday and in the process gave people something to think about. He implored people to examine the remaining candidates and assess where we as a nation want to go. This election is not a game; we are not voting someone off the Island or out of some stupid house. This is the FUTURE OF OUR NATION!! We cannot continue to treat our elections or our Nation like it’s a contest. There is an emptiness in our country I have never felt or seen before. People are more impressed with fluff, with anger, than with real solutions and the people most qualified to provide those solutions. I’m not even sure our Nation is salvageable at this point.
Our Nation became a little less yesterday when Governor Walker left the race. A man of honor, integrity, a defender of our founding principles and a fighter, with a love of Country few have. He will return to Wisconsin to serve the good people of that state as its elected Governor. And as a nation, we have lost an opportunity to have a GREAT President Scott Walker.
