Wisconsin Gov. Walker Says He Takes Oath Seriously
WISCONSINREPORT.COM (01/05/2015) – Republican Governor Scott Walker took the oath of office again today after winning the position three times in the last few years, including a regular election, a recall election and a re-election. Here are some of the words included in his prepared speech, Nov., 5, 2015:
“A few moments ago, I took an oath to support this constitution and the Constitution of the United States. I take that charge seriously,” Governor Walker said.
“Unlike other places around the world, this document says, in Wisconsin, it doesn’t matter what class you were born into or what your parents did for a living. Here, our opportunities should be as equal as possible, but the outcomes should still be up to each and every one of us.”
“In Wisconsin, we understand that true freedom and prosperity do not come from the mighty hand of the government. They come from empowering people to control their own lives and their own destinies through the dignity born from work.”
“In Wisconsin, we understand people create jobs, not the government. Those who choose to employ, be it one or many, are to be appreciated and encouraged, so as to prosper and increase employment for others in the future,” Governor Walker said.
“In Wisconsin, we understand the best way to improve lives and strengthen families, as well as raise wages, is to assist people to get a better education and to acquire more skills. This is how we grow household incomes, while putting people to work.”
“Since I last stood at this podium, our state has become more free and prosperous,” Governor Walker went on.
“We took the power away from big government special interests and returned it to you, the hard-working taxpayers,” he said.
“More people are working and fewer are unemployed,” Walker continued.
“School scores have improved and more of our students are graduating from high school,” he said.
Wisconsin’s re-elected Governor Walker also listed a number of other attributes of the State of Wisconsin, including the State Retirement System being “the only one fully funded in the country”, and “Wisconsin’s bond rating is positive”.
Walker, with a possible eye to the future, and ambitions to an occupation of a higher, more national nature, compared Wisconsin and Republican achievements here, to that of the state of things in Washington, D.C.
“In contrast to the politicians along the Potomac, we get things done here in the Badger state. There is a clear contrast between Washington and Wisconsin,” Governor Walker said.
“We’ve been good stewards of the taxpayers’ money and lowered their tax burden as well. We’ve shown why the founders of this great nation looked to the states, and not the federal government, as the source of hope for this exceptional country. We will not let them down,” he said.
“We have a grand vision for the future, a dream of freedom and prosperity for all who live here in the great state of Wisconsin,” Walker said.
Wisconsin’s three-time elected Governor says “we will help our fellow citizens, regardless of mobility or income, station or status in life, to achieve the education and skills needed to succeed in their chosen occupations.”
“This will not only help fill positions open today, but will build confidence in employers that they can create new jobs and find qualified workers to fill them,” Governor Walker claimed in his prepared inaugural speech.
“We will ensure every child, regardless of background or birthright, has access to a quality education,” Walker said.
“For many, like my sons and me, it is in a traditional public school. For others, it may be in a charter, a private, a virtual, or even a home school environment,” He continued.
“Regardless, we will empower families to make the choice that is right for their sons and daughters,” Governor Walker said in his inaugural speech, which took place in the rotunda of the State Capitol Building in Madison, Wisconsin.
