    ... if we have to beat it into them!

    (And "We'll get these people to delegate if we have to get down there and do it ourselves!")

      Who said anything about beating people?!

      •  Walker's idea of democracy is a top-down affair. (4+ / 0-)

        It goes with the authoritarian mind-set.

        •  Thanks---I just didn't understand. (4+ / 0-)

          Yes, if there's one thing that's been really disturbing it is to see up-close and personal what authoritarian rule really is.  It's chilling to experience.   Realizing that their words are meaningless when directed at us and that their loyalty is to the wealthy people who support and direct them has also been chilling.  They will literally do anything to this state, regardless of the long-term consequences, if it's what their wealthy backers want.  I can't really adequately explain it----but the disrespect (for lack of a better word) for the principles that underly democracy is deeply unsettling.
