  •  will union members vote against Walker? (10+ / 0-)

    many voted for him before

    what will they do this time?

    •  The Tea Party is heavily fractured now (8+ / 0-)

      There is a smoldering civil war between the 1% fiscal conservatives and the social conservatives who want to regulate your bedroom and legalize rape by doctor.

      A lot of people who got suckered into the Tea Party because of Wall Street bailouts and "out of control spending" now know they were suckered and voted against their wallets and self interest.

      Plus, Obama has NOT been taking union hunters' guns and most will recognize that the birth control fight is not forcing them to actually do anything they don't want to.

      Any union member who still votes for Walker can just be written off as an insane fundie who just wants to control people.
      But most union members won't be teabaggers this time.

    •  That depends. (4+ / 0-)

      There are certain members of any orgainization that are one issue voters. Theses people will vote on that one issue if everything else in thier life remains stable. The GOP in its vast arrogant overreach has throughly disrupted any stablity the was in this state.
      Voters must now make a choice about what is really important in our state. Is it going to be another guilded age of the robber barrons or are we going to fight to take back what others tried to take away.
      Are we going to sell the state and its resources in a corupt manor to corperations that will take the cash and leave us to clean up the mess that they will leave behind? Are we going to accept a political system so endemic with the rot of coruption that it makes the russian mob look like pikers? Are we going to accept economic, intellectual and spirtual bondage to a small group of interests that do not give a ratfuck about us, our quality of life, our hopes for the future, or anything even remotely related to anything other than the profit margin on the quarterly report? So I really don't think that many of the union members will be voting for Walker. Too much happened. Too much history has resurfaced in all its ugly glory. Too many people do not want it to come to blood again. How to do it? Vote his ass out. Personally I am waiting for a federal prosecutor to walk into the Govs office and read him his rights. Then I want to have the media get a chance to see him perp walked in public to jail. Even that does not matter. What matters is putting the government back into capable qualified, and competent hands who are not tainted with the stench of coruption.

    •  In answer to your questions, (0+ / 0-)

      No.

      and

      Vote for anyone but Walker.

      Everyone who hated Walker a year ago still hates him.

      The numbers of people who despise Walker and his Fitzjackals grows daily.

      He will lose.

      I started with nothing and still have most of it left. - Seasick Steve
