“The Important Vote on Tuesday!”

All eyes should be on Tuesday’s vote: a turning point for America.

No, not the debt ceiling and spending cut vote that may or may not occur in Congress, but an even more important vote—the vote in Wisconsin.

The vote to win back democracy. To smack down the plutocratic oligarchy that invaded Wisconsin. To fight off the move to fascism.

Both votes are important in their impact on politics and economics; both microcosms of the agony and the struggles Americans are forced to endure.

One vote may mean the collapse of the world economy while the other could signal the reawakening of democracy—a return to ‘we the people’—in a state with a history of progressive democratic values.

How important are the recall elections in the Badger State?

Quick Hit: “Against the Will of the People!”

Wisconsin Republicans have started the revolution!

With slick, fascist type swiftness, 18 Senators reversed 50 years of good politics against the will of the citizens.

The late night antic has not really gotten out to the citizens yet, but the anger will be elevated when Wisconsinites awaken to the news.

It is now clear that Scott Walker is the front man for this Republican/Fascist grab for power, stripping union rights from hard-working people. Americans will not tolerate this threat to democracy.

The way the conference was handled, the way Majority Leader Fitzgerald conducted the meeting was not only unlawful, but was an ugly example of fascism.  Fitzgerald was unwilling to listen to the impassioned argument of Representative Peter Barca who, by-way-of a letter from the current Republican Attorney General, point out the illegality of the Senator’s actions.

“A Fascist Regime in Wisconsin!”

The battle between hard-working Wisconsinites and Wisconsin’s Legislature rages on!

As this situation has escalated things have gotten uglier and more childish.

Republicans in Wisconsin’s state house continue their push to break up the public employees unions amidst declining citizen support.

Though the Wisconsin unions have agreed to all budgetary demands Governor Walker requested, he is insistent on breaking the union; eliminating collective bargaining for public workers. He is determined to turn Wisconsin into a fascist state employing fascist tactics to achieve his goals.

Of the 14 characteristics of fascism, Scott Walker and his comrades in the legislature are exploiting eight of them, obliterating some of the most sacred freedoms of a democracy.

The Governor, on Wednesday, issued an unlawful arrest order for the 14 Democrat Senators who fled the state to preserve democracy and protect Wisconsin’s citizens. A distinctive move in a fascist regime. In his decision, Walker clearly overstepped his gubernatorial powers, trampling civil liberties—moving ever closer to fascism.

Is Walker A Fascist? Is Senator Grothman, or Majority Leader Fitzgerald? Are the rest of the Republican Senators?
