The divide of this state has come on the shock of a electromagnetic tidal wave of reform, reform traveling through the grid fields of control. This control, well packaged in a brown bag themed end user model, is nothing more than a switch and bait scheme by the wealthy to excel by empowerment and for the middle class to self destruct in the race to the bottom.
For decades, the people of Wisconsin have bounced back from challenges. The values of our communities are based on the dirt under our finger nails to the Allen Edmond wing tips next to the front door. We have learned to respect eachother in simple aspects, we have sharpened our awareness to eachothers boundries with the understanding we can co-exist.
Then the bomb was dropped, unknowingly to John and Jane Doe of Wisconsin. A mapped out battle plan by those in a dark room became the guiding light. That plan, scripted with no plan of retreat by its creators, forced friends, co-workers and familes to take cover. The dust has yet to settle as the unsettled energies of all have become defensive measures with walls built. Our hands are seemingly withdrawn to help our neighbor because of the uncertainity of the political victor in the end.
Our growth is not based on the vision of one, but on the collective works of each within this state. The concepts brought forth as raw materials since the little big man attack on the working middle class families are now the beginning of the bricks and mortar to rebuild our traditional foundation. The flood of outside monies can only carry a path of destruction that will take generations of Wisconsin families to restore.
On June 5, 2012, do not let others direct your path. You can set into motion a direction of growth by electing a Governor that understands the people of Wisconsin, listens to the people of Wisconsin and will work for the people of the Wisconsin......... Tom Barrett.
