Register ahead of election? Yes

Most states already require voters to think ahead.

AFTER ALL THE nasty brawling — not just in Wisconsin, but across the nation — over whether Voter ID amounts to sensible security at the polls or a barely veiled suppression effort, a partisan battle over scrapping same-day registration in the state seems unavoidable.
North Pointe

Currently, Wisconsin is one of just a handful of states that allow unregistered individuals to come to the polls on election day and take care of the business right then and there. A substantial majority of states require registration well in advance. For example, in Illinois, registration closes about a month before election day.

The tradition in Wisconsin, however, has been far more liberal. Some like that. Some think it’s ripe for fraud, and creates an undue last-minute burden on election officials.

Wisconsin, a Microcosm of the United States

Scott Walker offers an intriguing glimpse into how conservative principles could succeed on a national scale.

One of the more compelling reasons to consider Scott Walker’s candidacy for president is that he has been elected, repeatedly, governor of a mid-size state with a strong executive. Wisconsin’s state constitution establishes a powerful governor’s seat, as opposed to, say, Texas’ constitution, or even to the limited powers granted to the U.S. president.

There are numerous ways in which the state of Wisconsin is a microcosm of the country, and perhaps advisory of things to come.

The state is deeply polarized, divided almost equally between left and right, as the U.S. has been now for forty years or more, and the state’s Republican Party is itself divided, principally in three parts. The Wisconsin GOP “establishment” generally adheres to the original Big Government principles; it contends with a growing conservative faction and a libertarian faction.

Over the last several national elections, the candidate favored by…

Scott Walker’s Challenges: A Win, But Trouble Ahead in Wisconsin

Never a break for Walker: the state has big issues he must navigate successfully before 2016.

Despite the heady rhetoric about a possible presidential run in 2016, Scott Walker faces significant issues as he contemplates his inauguration and second term.

Walker’s major first-term problem was a $3.6B budget shortfall left to him by the departing Democratic administration. This was an unconstitutional problem, as Wisconsin law requires a balanced budget. He and the Republican-controlled legislature dealt with the problem brilliantly through an initiative known as Act 10, under which they found savings without harming vital services and greatly curtailed the collective bargaining rights of unionized government employees.

Walker was able to balance the budget, to reduce taxes, and to actually project a $900M surplus. Much of the projected surplus was returned to the taxpayers in the form of additional tax cuts.

One problem he now faces lies in that word “projected.”

Walker for President? WI Gov’s Rise Has Similarities to Reagan

He isn’t the great communicator, but his record, abilities, and the opponent’s situation mimic the 1980 race.

The “elephant in the room,” now that Scott Walker has won a remarkable third election as governor of Wisconsin in only four years, is the presidential election in 2016. Well before the 2014 midterms, speculation was rife about Walker’s possible presidential ambitions, and his several trips to neighboring Iowa did nothing to quell it. It is widely assumed that Walker’s possible presidential ambitions are a major reason the national Democratic Party and its various third-party interest groups expended enormous resources in the unsuccessful attempts to defeat him.

There are many reasons for the Democrats to be terrified of a possible Walker candidacy for president. Most of those reasons can be summarized with two words: “Ronald Reagan.”

Red Wave Sweeps Wisconsin

Walker voters definitively rejected all statewide opposition to his policies.

A massive rebuke to the state Democratic Party, its statist policies, and the unrelentingly vicious, negative campaign in which they engaged was delivered last night by the voters of Wisconsin. They re-elected Governor Scott Walker — by the largest margin yet — for the third time in four years.

Yet the win was much more substantial than that. Every Republican incumbent running in the state was re-elected. All but one statewide office (the largely ceremonial secretary of State) up for election was won by Republicans. The GOP picked up two Senate seats in the state legislature (giving the Republicans a 19:14 majority) and three seats in the state Assembly, where they had already enjoyed a more comfortable margin. And the new members make the majority considerably more conservative than it had been previously.

Here are the results with additional commentary:

Desperation: Ad Claims Scott Walker Would Taint Your Kids’ Water

The Wisconsin left satirizes itself with an ad for the ages.

The Wisconsin gubernatorial race is receiving huge amounts of cash on both sides. In addition to the direct spending by the campaigns themselves, various outside advocacy groups have pumped significant money into the race. Mary Burke has received support from expected groups such as the SEIU, AFSCME, the AFL-CIO umbrella organization, the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), EMILY’s List, and other left-of-center operations.

A Time For Choosing Once Again

Did you know that Ronald Reagan started off as a Democrat? Reagan realized that allegiance to true progress is actually found in conservatism.

A Time for Choosing,” Reagan’s 1964 election-time speech defining conservative principles, was one of his finest political speeches. In it, Reagan laid out his central creed:  the belief in freedom and the unique challenge of being an American. He delivered that speech 50 year ago, but the question he posed to his listeners is as simple now as it was then: Shall we accept the opportunity to climb up, or shall we succumb to those unreliable promises that would chain us down?

More Dirty Tactics in Wisconsin Governor’s Race

A document dump attempts to create an impression of scandal around Scott Walker, though none exists.

In order to understand the latest turn of events in embattled Wisconsin, it is necessary to review recent history.

Before running for the governorship in 2010, Scott Walker served two terms as Milwaukee County executive. Milwaukee County is a Democratic Party stronghold, one of the three most resolutely Democratic of the state’s 72 counties (the other two: Dane, the seat of state capital Madison and main campus of the University of Wisconsin; and Menomonee, populated almost entirely by Menomonee Indians). In 2009, one of Walker’s staffers reported some apparent financial irregularities to him concerning a veterans’ charity which he ran, and Walker asked the county district attorney to look into them.
