Some people need to see socialism to believe it is bad!
“People around the country were baffled when exit polls showed Robert or Beto O’Rourke won more votes from native Texans than incumbent Senator Ted Cruz in the midterm. But this should not be a surprise, it should be a lesson, some people need to experience socialism to understand its disastrous effects,” claims Natalia Castro of American’s Limited Government.
Texas and Wisconsin election results are very balanced with Republicans winning in rural areas and suburbs and the Democratic candidates taking the big cities. Texas went Democratic along the border with Mexico and in the big cities. Just like Wisconsin, where the big cities voted for the Democratic candidate. Those big cities are the homes of liberal colleges where our kids are being exposed to socialism.
Texas however, retained Ted Cruz as their Senator by a margin of 220,000 votes, even after O’Rourke’s campaign had a $70 million dollar budget. Here in Wisconsin, Scott Walker carried 53 of the state’s 72 counties, but lost to Tony Evers by about 30,000 votes, while Dane County, the home of the liberal seat, our state capitol and the University of Wisconsin, went for Evers by a 160,000-vote margin.
Castro thinks: “While many Texas conservatives blamed the liberalization of the state on transplants from California and New York moving to the area for lower property value, it seems the opposite is taking place. These people are not bringing their liberal ideas, but running away from them.”
Chuck DeVore of the Washington Examiner explains, “The lack of economic freedom in California compared to Texas is likely why, according to census, from 2012 to 2016 a net of 521,052 Californians left the state. Texas was their most popular destination, with a net of 114,413 Californians moving 1,300 miles east to the Lone Star State. In the five years through 2016, some 542,432 more Americans moved to Texas than moved out, supporting a growth rate double that of California’s.
“It seems those who have experienced the socialist policies of high tax states are fleeing to Texas and voting to keep those taxes and regulations low.
“For the youth and those unexposed to progressive policies, increasing government spending with expanded Medicare and free tuition seem like good ideas. But for those who just left a state burdened by these policies, they are apprehensive to reinstitute them.
“Nationally, this can also be seen by some immigrant groups who tend to back the Republican Party after legally entering the country to escape socialism at home.”
“If the federal government can’t properly run the VA system or Medicaid, or even the Post Office, why does anyone think it could manage one of the largest industries in the United States,” said Justin Haskins.
We have lost our Governor Walker to the socialist movement lead by Bernie Sanders and our new Governor Tony Evers has promised to raise taxes to support his spending ideas. If you would look at Wisconsin’s history starting back in the late 1890s and forward, you would see a large manufacturing base, making machinery, cars and employing thousands of people. But the progressive movement of our own Fighting Bob La Follette drove those big employers out of Wisconsin with regulations and high taxes and replaced them with tax supported institutions.
Time will tell if our Republican-led Assembly and Senate can hold off Evers and his spending.
