WILL President and General Counsel Rick Esenberg explores the state of conservatism in Wisconsin over at RightWisconsin.
“Politics is an uncomfortable game. I appreciate the competing demands on elected officials and I get the argument that moving too fast and without regard for the political consequences can leave us with less reform than a more measured approach. But political power is not an end in itself. We elect conservatives to accomplish things, not to further the careers of the particular individuals who hold office. When you’ve got the votes to get things done – and right now we do – then it’s time to get things done. We should play it smart. We should not play it safe.”
