The slide-show video in this diary is the combined work of Giles Goat Boy and ruleoflaw.  A companion diary to this one can be seen at Wisconsin Recall Mania - A Double Fantasy Diary.

The May 14th rally in Madison was the first day of Wisconsin Recall Mania.  Now it's all about the recalls.  As Chris Bowers so eloquently put it:

The only way the new protest movements against austerity and cuts to workers' rights will be taken seriously is if it starts removing elected officials from office. If the movement fails to do that, then elected officials and other powers that be just won't care. And why should they?

The future of democracy in the United States is riding on the Wisconsin recall elections.  
If you will not fight for your rights, you will lose them.
The fight begins right here, right now.

Giles and ruleoflaw urge you to read Wisconsin Recall Mania - A Double Fantasy Diary wherein ruleoflaw's righteous rant is engraved in ones and zeroes through the miracle of copy & paste.  

Go below the fold to watch the video.  Below the video are some links to show you how you can get involved.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
