Former Governor Tommy Thompson, pictured at the left, is running for the U.S. Senate in 2012 as a Republican, yet when we look at his more recent actions he looks like a big government liberal, as opposed to being any form of conservative Republican. According to Senator Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund , we see just what this supposed Republican’s views actually are, as to what he feels the size and scope of the U.S. government should be. The following truths epitomize the name RINO, or Republican In Name Only that we see used so often today to describe big government loving Republicans. Wisconsin conservatives would be well-served in heeding the following info-bytes from DeMint’s SCF, and vote for the true conservative in the Wisconsin U.S. Senate race in 2012, Mr. Mark Neumann who will fight for the principles of freedom that make America great.
Mr. Neumann has solid conservative credentials, as opposed to Tommy Thompson apparent love for all things big government:
- Mark’s first job was working on a farm. For 25 years he owned and operated a construction company that created hundreds of private sector jobs. Served in Congress from 1995 – 1999 and was rated Wisconsin’s most conservative member of congress of the last 30 years. Mr. Neumann also taught math in Wisconsin’s public schools and Co-founded three Christian Choice schools. Demint’s SCF serves up the truth about Tommy Thompson as follows:
When asked earlier this week if he agreed with conservative Gov. Scott Walker’s decision to reject $810 million in federal money to create a high-speed rail line, Thompson said he would have taken the money even though the state cannot afford the operating expenses.
Then, when asked about his views on Gov. Walker’s fight against public-sector collective bargaining, Thompson said he wasn’t sure if he would have stood up to the unions that are bankrupting the state.
Even worse, Thompson said he would oppose right-to-work legislation in Wisconsin, which would secure the right of workers to decide for themselves whether or not to join and financially support a union.
The 2012 U.S. Senate races are a vital piece of the conservative mission of turning back the Liberal/Socialist agenda of Barack Obama, Nancy , and Harry Reid. Not only must we remove Liberal Democrats at every chance we get in the 2012 elections across America, but we must also be cognizant of big government Liberals like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, that are posing as conservatives, when we go to the polls in Nov. 2012.
