  •  Actions of the fearful... (2+ / 0-)

    When you look at how Wisconsin is being governed under the gop majority, it shows that outside influence does not care about the real stakeholders, the citizens. This move by the gop is an action out of fear, they fu-fued the primaries, while spending an estimated $500,000 of tax-payer money to put 6 fake ass dems on the ballot. Losing every race! Now the real recall elections are quickly approaching, so this is their strategy to squelch the anti-gop momentum. In a word, shame!

    In closing, this chant resonates in my head, "RECALL WALKER!"

      And that we should all take heart from, is that fighting off an increasingly OUTRAGED public in Wisconsin is just sucking money away from the GOP's operations elsewhere.

      They are going to be FUCKED this year.  Their backers will suddenly find that purchasing a government from a public unwilling to sell it to them is EXPENSIVE.  

      Just in case you forgot today: REPUBLICANS VOTED TO END MEDICARE. AND THEY'LL DO IT AGAIN.

      I can smell it. Underneath all the bullying, all the dissembling, all the mendacity. Fear of the electorate, and fear of their own leadership.  

      They're not trying to squelch the anti-gop momentum, they're doubling down.  Trying to see how much damage they can do before we throw them out on their sorry asses.

      Recall - DONE! VOTE against the fakes - DONE! VOTE TO TAKE WISCONSIN BACK!!! Rescind. Rebuild.

      •  And it just fuels the fire. (0+ / 0-)

        Just when some of us start to feel like we're losing momentum, the Fitzwalkerstan cult pulls another outrageous act against democracy and we are refueled.

        Republican Senator Dale Schultz was the only one to break ranks with Walker and as a result, he will be a Senator for life (unless he starts tweeting naked pictures of himself.) You'd think the others would learn.

        One day longer.

        It's not that easy being green.
