Governor Scott Walker
Dear Fellow Conservative: Conservatives are under attack in Wisconsin and that means ... AHEAD where you live.
There's BIG TROUBLE
If the powerful labor unions get their way in my state ... They'll get their way in yours. Our crisis today, is your crisis tomorrow! This is the frontline in the battle to rein in the too-powerful Wisconsin as a "test case" for their national strategy. We must stop them NOW. My rivals are using every threat, dirty trick and scare tactic in the book to get their way. Big Labor Bosses know what they want, when they want it, and how they're going to get it. Their naked power grab starts here in Wisconsin and then radiates across the country. Mark my words, if they barge and bully and get their way here, your state's next ... so, together, we must fight them tooth and nail right here and right now. This is your urgent call to action and, facing a recall election because I had the courage to battle Big Labor and the Status Quo, I need your help today. Write and rush your "Friends of Scott Walker" contribution for $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more and iet me know that you'ii help me stand strong against the mercenary labor thugs. Big Unions have lined up all the usual suspects to bankroll them: President Obama's The Moveon.org Political Machine. Radicals. labor unions which arc using
Liberal Billionaire George Soros' attack organizations. The Ultra Left-Wing Elites from Hollywood and Manhattan.
The list goes on and on, and the millions pile up. Over, please ...

Wisconsin is broke: our economy was failing. so as the new Republican Governor. I took urgent action to save mv state. With disaster staring us in the face, I cut spending and one obvious source was the special benefits unions got. Those union contracts were tying us in knots and the same is true in your state. But the instant I acted ... The Labor Unions scrambled an unprecedented response.
They spit out the "insult" that I'm the most fiscally conservative Governor in America, but I take it as a compliment. They are threatening me with the label that I'm their #1 TARGET and my knees are supposed to buckle, my palms are supposed to sweat and I'm supposed to eave into their strong-arm tactics, but . ~ _ __ _ _ -___ ---It's not going to happen. President Obama accused me of waging an "assault on the unions" when he knows it's not true. I'm just trying to do what's right in having state employees pay into their own health insurance and pension plans just as their neighbors in the private sector have to do. Seems reasonable right? But thousands of Big Labor protestors, many bused in from Chicago and Las Vegas, buzzed around the State Capitol like angry wasps. Their behavior was, at times. somewhat dubious. You likely saw or read the national news accounts of their demonstrations. Many of their signs were profane and obscene. Some were very aggressive and they vowed revenge on me. In the face of hate-tilled personal threats, I came to work every single day, did my job, made the tough calls and tried to make government work efficiently and effectively. But the Big Labor bosses sec a tight that they aren't willing to lose. They view the upcoming recall election as the primer for the national elections this tall. They aren't kidding. They mean business. And they don't play by the same rules you and I do. Now in the face of bare-knuckle union attacks and a galling failure of President Obama's leadership, it's imperative that you and I buckle down, confront the coming political onslaught headon, and raise the funds needed to stand our ground and take on the status quo. I need you to stand up for democracy and for conservative stewardship, and I hope you'll honor me with a "Friends of Scott Walker" contribution for $25, $100, $500, $1,000 or more today. When I saw the Big Union-sponsored mercenaries descend on our State Capitol from parts unknown, I knew that what we were experiencing in Wisconsin was not an isolated case: Continued ...
It was just a taste of what the rest of the nation would soon be forced to endure. the Big Union Bosses could make their rampage of intimidation work in my state ...
Thev'lI make it work in yours.
I inherited a state that was suffering from a never-ending loop of fast spending, high taxing, and deep borrowing (sound familiar"). While the everyday citizens were experiencing great pain, the wild-eyed liberals were spending like there was no tomorrow. The same is true where you live. The Liberal Democrats love the Status Quo and they saw no reason to change their ways. The Big Unions had the Democrats in their hip pocket and they refuse to reform the way government works even though our state was heading toward fiscal disaster. In fact, in a cowardly attempt to maintain the status quo, fourteen Democrat State Senators actually fled the state and hid out in Illinois. They wanted me to come meet them at the border ... Can you believe that? But I stood up for the everyday citizens who follow the rules and make America work. One Democratic State Senator who turned tail and ran away said,
"It's almost like a reality TV show." No it's not. It's not a game. This is real life!
The Union Bosses know that better than anyone and they've vowed to make me pay in a "Recall \Valker" election.
They're trying to make an example out of me now but trust me, the true conservative Republican leaders in your state (and nationally) are next. They have demonstrated their eagerness to ignore reality, disregard the truth, distort my record, question my motives and attack my character for having the courage to try to make government work. My "Friends of Scott Walker" team is digging in for a tough fight and I'm reaching out to fiscal conservatives from across this great land for help. Your generous contribution to our campaign for $25, $100, $500 or more will help answer the deluge of liberal money flowing into Wisconsin and will allow me to answer the Big Labor funded rampage of attack ads with the truth. We're cleaning up the mess left behind by decades of reckless spending, careless budgeting, clueless borrowing and shameless wasting of taxpayers' hard-earned money. We're doing what the liberals refused to do: we're doing the right thing for the sake of America's children and grandchildren. Over, please ...
In their selfishness and greed, the Labor Bosses are taking direct aim at hardworking citizens and over-taxed voters who show up for work, play by the rules, do a tough job right and just want a fair shake at success. For the Union-paid protestors who screamed until their t~lCCS were red and painted signs filled with hate-tilled threats and profane words, all I can say is that they can yell and curse all they want but I'm not going to back down from mv conservative good government efforts. The Liberals and Union Bosses have got me in their sights. direct aim at me in this special recall election. And they're looking to take
I'm writing to you in recognition of the vital role you've played for so many fiscal conservative candidates and noble causes. Given the magnitude-of the-cha+lerrge-ahead,-hre"ed-you now and I want you to playa leading role in my quest to raise $1 ~O,OOO in the next 30 days. Given what we're up against, it's critical that we start now. There's a contribution form and envelope enclosed with my letter and I hope you'll use them to reaffirm your faith, trust, and confidence in what I'm trying to do here. I'm being demonized by the Senate Democrats, vilified by the Labor Bosses, castigated by President Obama and I'm going to need your support to persevere. Help me deliver my clear conservative message of bold reforms by providing the urgent support I need. We're on a mission to raise $180,000 in the next 30 days and your generous spirit will get us there. Please write your "Friends of Scott Walker" contribution for $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or more, today, and return it in the postage-paid envelope that's enclosed. We've taken on some mighty powerful special interests and made them unbelievably mad. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat because our state government was running on fumes and going down for the count. My adversaries are out to get me but I've got news for them: In you, I've got a friend in my comer and we're going to win. Most Sincerely, ~~ Governor P.S. The vicious attacks by Big Labor and President Obama reinforce the importance of your immediate help. The fight to stop them starts here and now in Wisconsin before it spreads like an out-of-control wildfire in your state and across the nation. Will vou help me stand
against the largest organized labor battle since President Reagan had the fortitude to do the right thing and take them on nearlv 30 years ago? I hope your answer is, "YES!"
