Blowing Up The Debt Star

I don't want to jinx it, but I'm so happy I feel like shouting from the roof tops.

It looks like Big Labor is getting ready to die the ugly death it so rightly deserves and it will take the Democrat party with it.

Today, Hanukkah came early. Rasmussen Reports, the most accurate political polling firm on the planet, is reporting that 48% of registered voters are siding with Wisconsin's heroic Governor Scott Walker and only 38% are standing with the lying, thieving public sector unions. It's a Hanukkah in February miracle!


To quote our drunken Vice President, Joe Bite Me: "This is a big f-ing deal!"

If the Right plays its cards right, this can be final nail in the coffin of the 2+2=5 Progressivevik Left. If Scott Walker doesn't flinch, (And so far, he hasn't, unlike the way the Weeper of the House and Itch McConnell did during the Bush Tax Cut hubbub. Another 13 months of unemployment ? Gimme a break! Sigh...another rant for another time. ) he'll cause a chain reaction that will drain the power of other public sector unions, which will save many states billions upon billions of dollars. That's great news to be sure, but there's also another reason to rejoice:


It's not a big secret that the hated Democrat party and the public sector unions have had an incestous love affair for decades. ( At this point, I'm surprised no one has given birth to a mutant child yet.) Check this out from the American Institute for Economic Research's Richard Ebeling:


"Since 1990, labor unions have contributed over $667 million in election campaigns in the United States, of which $614 million or 92 percent went to support Democratic candidates. In 2008, unions spent $74.5 million in campaign contributions, with $68.3 million going to the Democratic Party. Already, unions have contributed $6.5 million to the 2010 elections, and $6 million has gone to Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington, D.C."



Let's take a look at that list, shall we ?

If you'll note, five of the listed unions are public sector unions. If they were to lose any power, they'd also lose a whole lot of cash, which is the lifeblood of politics. Less cash means means lost elections for the Dims. And here's the funny part: This is happening with the approval of the American people, and it all started in the birth place of the Progressivevik Movement, Wisconsin! Oh, the Lord works in mysterious ways, and it's fairly apparent He is quite displeased with the Democrat party.

Here's the bottom line, folks. This is the opening we've been waiting for. This is the exhaust port to destroy the Democrats' Debtstar. We can't be like the useless Rebel pilots who got themselves blown to smithereens by Darth Vader.....

We need to arm those proton torpedoes!
