I tend to agree with this writer’s assessment of Scott Walker. Of all the declared and semi-declared candidates thus far, he is one of the few — possibly the only — I would seriously consider supporting for President. One thing voters need to understand, though: even if you support someone with Walker’s philosophy of governance, the President alone cannot rollback all the damage at the Federal level that needs addressing. (At least, not without acting like King Obama. Part of the point of reforming government should be a return to the rule of law, not merely electing a lawless candidate whose policies you happen to support.) In addition to electing a chief executive who will restore more limited government and fiscal sanity, we the voters need to provide that executive with like-minded allies in Congress.
It’s a long way yet till November 2016. But start doing your homework now, if you’re seeking authentic change and a return to our nation’s roots.
