It’s important for all Americans to understand what is unfolding in the State of Wisconsin, and in the Midwest, because what happens in Wisconsin will certainly not stay in Wisconsin. It will impact every state in the Union, and so we must all be informed and equipped to do all we can to insure that the ultimate impact is a positive one that will help advance the cause of peace and freedom in the nation.

Over the past decades there has been a most unholy alliance between the major labor unions and the Democratic Party, and now that a Democrat is in the White House that alliance is between the major labor unions and the federal government. President of the AFL-CIO says without hesitancy that he visits the White House 2-3 times a week, and talks to someone from the White House every day. At the very least that indicates major influence on federal government policy, and it may even suggest a level of union control of government. Unions and government partnerships have historically proven to be a formula for disaster. Ask anyone in the former Soviet Union. In this country this unholy alliance has resulted in government workers receiving salaries and benefits far better than the private sector, while providing increasingly mediocre and inefficient services. When there is a labor conflict in the private sector the company involved would have to change its ways or go out of business. In the government sector, the employer just raises taxes. There is no competition. The taxpayer is compelled to pay by force of law.

That’s why there cannot be collective bargaining between labor and government. This was generally understood even among the labor unions until the late 1950s when union membership began to dwindle and they began looking for ways to grow their army. And they did. Now the pendulum must swing back to a common sense center. Government workers must not be allowed to bargain with their employer because their employer is the citizenry, not a corporate mogul, or wealthy shareholders who can make choices about profitability.

If the current trend toward more government union continues we will find ourselves where government workers are the protected and preferred class –by law- while everyone else is struggling just to make ends meet. This will resemble the failed Soviet Union more than a free America. It must be changed now in Wisconsin, because what happens in Wisconsin surely will not stay in Wisconsin.

An Impeachable Offense

The Obama administration has announced today that it will no longer defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bans the recognition of same-sex "marriage." This indicates either a total ignorance of the limits of executive authority, and the responsibility of the Department of Justice, or blatant arrogance and disregard for our system of law. This is not a dictatorship where the executive can choose which laws he will enforce and which he will ignore. If he believes a law is unconstitutional we have a judicial process to make that determination. The President and the Attorney General do not have the unilateral authority to declare what laws –and by extension, what part of the Constitution-they will enforce. he President took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. This is a clear attempt to shred it, and in my view, it is an impeachable offense.

England’s Prime Minister recently told the world community what common sense Americans have been saying all along: multiculturalism doesn’t work.

In fact, one reason why the United States of America has been exceptional among nations is because we followed a policy that was anathema to multiculturalism; it’s called “unity,” or as we codified it, “One Nation under God”. As long as immigrants came here to adopt a new “American” national identity, we advanced in peace and prosperity as no other nation has ever known. Unity has always been our strength, not diversity. Diversity contributes to weakness, not strength. Try putting an army on the field with men and women of different languages and cultures and see how victorious you will be. From the times of the Tower of Babel, unity has always indicated strength, and diversity, weakness.

We’ve had our experiment with diversity, and it has failed. Minority groups have not prospered because they did not assimilate. English is the language of success. It is to our shame that we have failed to teach immigrants English, and as a result we have locked them away in ethnic enclaves, a permanent underclass that will not advance, because they will not be competitive unable to speak English.

If we’re going to preserve peace and prosperity for our posterity we must discard the promotion of multiculturalism and go back to teaching American values. In fact, it’s time to go back to what Teddy Roosevelt told us in 1907:

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people. “

It worked then; it will work now. Let’s do it.
