READING THE ‘TEA’ LEAVES IN WI: What Does Gov Walker’s Recall Victory Really Mean?
Available for interviews to throw a completely new perspective on Governor Scott Walker’s (pictured) recall election victory in Wisconsin is Ned Ryun, president of American Majority (AM), a leading grassroots conservative organization that had a direct impact on the get-out-the-vote process there.
While political analysts from both the Republican and Democratic camps are busy selling their snake-oil spin on the results and whether or not the Walker outcome is a bellwether sign of things to come in November, Ryun is prepared to give his “boots-on-the-ground” view that gets to the no-nonsense reality of the situation.
Check out these excerpts from a handful of Ryun’s editorials on the topic. Then, call Special Guests to book Ryun for a compelling interview unlike any other the mainstream media is serving up.
Ryun on what the recall was really all about (source: RedState.com)
The Wisconsin recall fight wasn’t about Republicans and Democrats. It wasn’t about Obama. It was about the power of the majority of taxpayers who stood up against being fleeced by the very public employee union bosses who have put them on the hook for trillions of debt. Beginning fifteen months ago and culminating with the recall victory, the conservative movement struck back in Wisconsin and redefined the national fight for America’s future. Now is not a time for celebration. It’s time to take the fight to the next level. Read more.
Ryun on how American Majority played a critical role (source: The American Spectator)
…the Wisconsin battle didn't begin in 2012, or 2011 for that matter. Our own work in Wisconsin began in the fall of 2010 with the launch of American Majority and Media Trackers in the state. Full-time American Majority staff in Wisconsin conducted more than 30 training sessions across the state since the spring 2011, and last year as the budget battle heated up American Majority was able to leverage the local infrastructure it helped develop into a potent voice in favor of Gov. Scott Walker's reforms. Read more.
Ryun on who the real political enemy is in 2012 (source: RedState.com)
I contend that we do (have an American royalty). It’s a Ruling Class and it’s destroying the promise of America. …Understanding who they are is the first step toward doing something about them. After all, as Jefferson wrote, “An elective despotism is not the government we fought for.” Britain’s monarchy is a source of national unity and pride even in the toughest of times. Our Ruling Class is a damaging force that is quietly scraping away at the fabric of the country. They are the cause of our ballooning debt, over-taxation and slide into European-style statism.

ABOUT AMERICAN MAJORITY PRESIDENT, NED RYUN:
A former presidential writer for George W. Bush and son of former U.S. Congressman Jim Ryun, Ned Ryun is currently the President of American Majority, a national organization committed to identifying and training liberty‐minded leaders. Ned was the co‐founder and former director of the Generation Joshua program.
Ned earned degrees in English and History from the University of Kansas and has co‐authored Heroes Among Us and The Courage to Run with his father and his twin brother, Drew. Ned and his wife, Becca, reside in Northern Virginia with their sons, Nathaniel and James and their daughter, Charlotte “Lottie.”
When asked which Founding Father he relates to most with, and why, Ryun answered, “Roger Sherman. I am fascinated by a man who is not well known, but who signed the Articles of Confederation, helped draft and then signed the Declaration of Independence, and then also signed the Constitution and was a member of the First Congress, sitting on the committee that helped draft the Bill of Rights. He had a tremendous impact on the founding of this country.”
