William Malet

I am a conservative with a little time on my hands.

Thomas Jefferson once said, “I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.”

How true. 

If you were paying attention in 2010, you understood that the voters across America spoke loud and clear and wanted their government back.  As a new class of government leaders take office in January, it will be interesting to see how the Republican establishment deals with its new, strange bedfellow, the tea party.

While the Democrats clearly didn’t get the message sent in 2010, there are signs the Republican Party did. 

As a contributor to Fairly Conservative, I hope to provide a unique perspective on what happened in 2010, and how the tea party movement will impact the legislative and governing process in both Madison and Washington, D.C.

Starting next Tuesday, we’ll take a closer look at what happened on November 2nd in Wisconsin.  We’ll begin by examining some of the key differences between Governor-elect Scott Walker and U.S. Senator-elect Ron Johnson and their respective campaigns.

On occasion, I’ll comment on other non-tea party issues as well.

I have chosen to stay anonymous and have taken the name William Malet, a historical figure associated with the Magna Carta.  As you may know, the Magna Carta inspired our nation’s Forefathers when they wrote the U.S. Constitution. 

I value freedom. 

I value people who have taken risks to defend it.

Thank you, Cindy, for this opportunity to be part of your blogging community.

Enjoy the snow this weekend.
