One cannot go anywhere in Wisconsin these days without seeing signs in support of the Governor that say "I stand with Walker". I'd like to congratulate these citzens for their courageous and self-sacrificing decision to vote against their own best interests. It takes a special sort of person to shun logic, reason, and common sense in fealty to a despotic leader. I feel it's my duty as a fellow Wiconsinite to point out precisely where it is that all these folks are standing.
If you stand with Walker, then you stand for the pollution of Wisconsin's beautiful fields, streams and sky. If you stand with Walker then you stand for robbing your fellow citizens to enrich wealthy corporate overlords. If you stand with Walker then you support taking quality healthcare and a chance for a decent public education away from the children of this state. If you stand with walker then you support the notion that government control is better for a uterus than the decisions of women and their physicians. If you stand with Governor Walker then you oppose transparency in government and you support the undermining of our state constitution. If you stand with Walker you believe you should bargain alone with you employer and that unions take the money of hard working people and never give them anything in return. If you stand with Walker you believe you have a right to do more work for less money. If you stand with Walker you stand in favor of corruption, cronyism, and influence peddling. If you stand with Walker then you stand for cheating, lying, and bullshitting. If you stand with Walker then you support killing people for being on your front porch.
It's not my intention to criticize here. I just want to make sure that we all understand each other. If these are the things you believe in, then by all means stand with Governor Walker. If perhaps you don't support all these things, or maybe even oppose a few of them, I ask that you join me on June 5th to vote against such tyranny.
For those of you on the sidelines who feel you don't have a horse in this race or simply don't care enough to take the time to vote, I have just one thing to say to you... You stand with Governor Walker.. If Walker manages to keep his job after June 5th the responsibility lies squarely with you. I know that's harsh, but it's the truth. Whatever malfeasance Walker inflicts on this state after that point will be your fault. Walker's minions may gloat and celebrate but I'll know that the victory is yours. That's right... At this point this election is no longer about Scott Walker or budgets or unions or demonstrations... It's about YOU and where YOU stand.
You can choose to stand for civility, fairness, and cooperation, in a nutshell democracy, or you can choose to stand in a pile of shit. The choice is yours.
