The voters elected me to make tough decisions.
They wanted me to clean up the mess my Democratic predecessor left behind.
For too many years, they'd heard nothing but big talk and flimsy promises.
They were eager for big ideas, bold reform, sweeping conservative action and...
Libsareb, that's exactly what we gave them.
Putting my heart and soul into a set of conservative reforms, we turned Wisconsin around, got the government out of the way, put the state in the right direction and just as we predicted... by limiting government and unleashing free enterprise, we got amazing results.
Enclosed with my letter is your limited-edition "Scott Walker – Conservative Governor" bumper sticker in recognition and appreciation of your conservative leadership in the United States of America.
There's a contribution form and return envelope included as well with the hope that you'll join our energetic grassroots team of conservative supporters with your "Friends of Scott Walker" contribution of $35, 50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000,-$2,500 or more.
As you may know, our conservative leadership came with a steep price.
Because I curbed collective bargaining to empower school districts and local governments, the Big Government Labor Bosses came after me hard in a recall race.
They joined forces with the Obama Liberals who have a vested interest in growing government, and they spent millions to try to take me out.
Conservative champions across the country rallied to my side. We won that recall race. And we proved once and for all that standing up to the Far Left bullies is not only the right thing to do, the voters will applaud your courage.
Yes, we made some tough decisions. And they paid off.
New jobs are way up in a growing economy.
Taxes are way down and that puts more money into everyone's pockets.
Business confidence soared because we got government out of the way.
In our surging economy, new housing starts and new business starts are way up.
Empowered to make their own decisions, our schools are in better shape than before. Test scores are up. Graduation rates are up, too.
Our pension system is the only one in the country that's frilly funded.
We inherited a $3.6 billion deficit from the Democrats and turned it into a surplus.
The play-it-safe pundits urged me to shy away from the "controversial" issues...
But I refused to take their advice.
The Constitution is crystal clear and the 2nd Amendment means what it says. Your right to "keep and bear arms" cannot be taken away from you.
For the sake of our safety and sovereignty, our borders must be secure.
And when I call to protect American jobs and American wages, it's not anti-immigration, it's simply pro-American worker.
The passion you and I share for limited government, constitutional principles, free enterprise, and sweeping conservative change goes to the heart of our vision for making America's future brighter than ever.
These are the conservative principles we've put into action in Wisconsin, but in the bigger picture, what's working so well here will work every place in America...
Especially in Washington, D.C.
For six long years President Obama's liberal policies have made a mess of things.
Our economy is barely growing. Millions are out of work and millions more have gotten so discouraged, they've given up looking for a job
. Wages are as stagnant as the economy.
Liberals are trying to micromanage the economy out of Washington and that's a disaster.
From the instant they launched their healthcare.gov website, it's been clear that ObamaCare is on course to be a disaster.
President Obama's budgets increase Washington's spending Taxes go up. The debt goes deeper. The federal debt will double during President Obama's watch.
Is it any wonder 2/3 of Americans say the country is heading in the wrong direction? They're repulsed by the dysfunction radiating from Washington and the White House.
The old guard and establishment politicians have had their chance and they've failed -- miserably. They've spent money we don't have on liberal programs we don't need.
It's time for fresh ideas, a new direction, conservative reforms, and real leadership.
My habit of "telling it like it is" has earned me a bunch of liberal detractors and they've spent millions of dollars to defeat me. We've beat back every challenge so far but there are more challenges ahead and our campaign can certainly use a good strong conservative leader like you.
You've gone out of your way to help other conservative leaders.
My hope is that you'll ioin our "Friends of Scott Walker" campaign with your personal contribution for $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more.
Your strong and early support will make you one of the key members of our team.
The Washington Liberals are always looking for ways to go after my record, reforms, conservative agenda, and vision. They will dream up everything and anything to attack me for, and spit out negative television ads to bolster their attacks.
With your good help, we'll be ready for the next onslaught of vicious ads. Along with your limited edition "Scott Walker – Conservative Governor" bumper sticker, there's a contribution form with your name on it. Please put it to good use today.
The truth is, we've only scratched the surface of the conservative reforms we want to enact to make government better, smaller, and smarter. Your personal check to our conservative cause will have a tremendous impact. In fact, the single greatest action you can take to help me is to write a contribution to "Friends of Scott Walker" today.
This is one of those special moments where the action you take today will have a ripple effect across the nation for years to come, as the reforms we've implemented in Wisconsin serve as a model to local, state, and even the federal government.
But our opponents will never cease their fight. They want me to pay for sticking to my conservative principles and they want my defeat to serve as a lesson for all those who would ever dare to cross them. Libsareb, the best way for us to prepare for the political challenges, ahead is to start now and get stronger fast.
You know what the liberal Democrats in Washington are capable of, but don't be intimidated. We've got the Constitution behind us and a bright conservative future in front of us.
Our opponents berate others, tear down our accomplishments, twist the truth, and fool the voters. Everything they do is in service of protecting the Big Government status quo they love.
But they're doing a disservice to our citizens.
They engage in the cheap-shot, smash-mouth, gutter politics that heckles, harasses and shows their level of hypocrisy with every new attack ad they run.
My hero is President Ronald Reagan and you likely have a special place in your heart for him, too. Through the power of his example, he proved that the time to make history is now. Libsareb, let's make history together by making government smaller and smarter with a set of new fresh conservative reforms that will turn things around.
Put your "Scott Walker – Conservative Governor" bumper sticker to good use. And join our conservative crusade with your "Friends of Scott Walker" contribution for $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500 or more.
Don't for a second doubt the kind of impact our conservative reforms are having.
Don't let the Washington know-it-ails tell you one person can't make a difference.
You can. You will. Your help today will mean the world to me.
Let me hear back from you with the good news that you'll join our conservative crusade.
Just like President Reagan, I'm optimistic about our future because I have such great confidence in the ability of "ordinary" Americans to do extraordinary things. There are great possibilities ahead as soon as we get Big Government out of the way. Come join me, Libsareb.
