Do Resolutions Matter

This is a question that comes up every year when we do the State GOP Resolutions. My answer is ultimately yes they matter a great deal.

Resolutions are the current thoughts of the party. They are a road map for our elected officials to follow based on what we as grass root members would like to see. When you compare the resolutions of both parties you will see the differences.

Kay at Blue Racine was kind enough to supply the link to the Wisconsin Democrat’s 2007 Resolutions that were passed at this year’s state convention.

Now for those of you that know me I just love this type of stuff. I read every one of their resolutions and I believe I will be spending a great deal of time going through them and comparing them to the GOP resolutions.

I think that it is important for people to understand that while the Democrats talk about helping all they really want to do is tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend. (You’ll think that is funny once you read resolution 07-FA-07)

Since I want to analyze the resolutions lets start with the most obvious: repeats. The Democrats have a total of 46 resolutions (10 of which were proposed from the floor); there are 2 resolutions on global warming; 2 resolutions on ending the war in Iraq; 6 resolutions to impeach the President and/or Vice President; 2 resolutions to repeal the USA PATRIOT Act; 4 resolutions on Campaign Financing; 6 resolutions claiming support for “universal health care.”

The GOP had zero repeat resolutions. (link)

From the looks of things the Dems just got lazy. They decided that the work needed to review all of the redundancy in the multiple resolutions was just too much and that it was easier to just pass them all. Unfortunately for them if an undecided voter were to read through this (like that would happen for either of the parties resolutions!) they would quickly come to the conclusion that these people have nothing to offer but the beat of the drum.

Last quick note on this will be to look at the number of Democrat resolutions that require taxes to be increased…nearly 50% of them are tax increase resolutions! Remind your friends and family the next time they mention their tax bills!!
