Why I’m Relieved Wisconsin’s Scott Walker Ended His White House Bid

As I strive to find time in the coming days to head to my family’s residence in the southeastern part of Wisconsin, I’ve been thinking about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker suspending his presidential campaign.

While Illinois has pretty much been run into the ground at this point, I’ve been under the impression that Walker and Wisconsin have been moving in the right (figuratively/literally) direction lately.

Perhaps somewhat selfishly, I became concerned about the governor’s bid for the White House. Why would this “F.I.B.” (“affectionate” Wisconsinite acronym for Illinoisans) care? Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity might remember something I wrote back on January 29, 2013, as part of this blog’s “Proejct Prepper” series of posts:

By the time I started this blog back in November 2010, I already had a pretty good idea I’d eventually be leaving the city of Chicago to reside someplace else. And every once in a while, I’d query the “best places” to live in America- should TSHTF or not. While the area of southeastern Wisconsin I’m looking at moving to in a few years is probably not “ideal” (even less so the suburbs of Chicago) from a prepper’s perspective, practitioners of modern survivalism would probably see more positives than negatives with the location. Keeping in mind that not only do I envision a certain lifestyle for myself down the road, but I also think I have a pretty good idea of what will be required to “survive and prosper” in America in the coming years, this part of the Midwest really appears to be a nice fit not only for me but my girlfriend as well. Here’s hoping it is…

Five years on, a permanent address in Wisconsin still looks to be part of the plan, so Scott Walker’s moving from the state scene to the national stage:

A. Had the real potential of hindering progress north of the Illinois state line

B. Might have made me scrutinize that future “Escape To Wisconsin” more so than I’ve been planning on doing

Thankfully, I hear Walker is returning to Madison- for now. Madeleine Behr reported on The Post-Crescent (Appleton) website Monday:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s once-promising presidential campaign has come to an abrupt end.

Walker announced his plans to drop out of the presidential race at a downtown Madison hotel Monday, returning his focus to his gubernatorial work in Wisconsin

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Best of luck with your future endeavors, Governor Walker.

In the coming days, perhaps I can mull over that Wisconsin plan with some sense of relief while taking care of tasks at my family’s place behind the “Cheddar Curtain.”
