The Death of our democracy became very apparent here in Wisconsin.
The unlimited sums of money raised by Walker is one issue but the main issue, and the real concern for everybody here is that the lies, misinformation and scare tactics he bombarded the public with, the messaging was cruel, unscrupulous, and worked…. they drank the cool-aide. The Republican messaging machine is brilliant and I believe, even at even money, Barrett would have lost. Our great Senator Feingold, who was so instrumental to protecting our rights being assaulted by the Patriot Act, was targeted and taken out this way and the domino effect so proclaimed about Vietnam will be a reality with our state governments, our Congress, and the Presidency. The Republicans have figured out how to tell ruthless lies that the public will believe and accept as they walk merrily to the gallows to vote against their own best interest and kill this, yours and mine, modern experiment in individual empowerment, the United States of America. What wil the Republicans do to education, heath care, social security, the export of American jobs, with unlimited power and AUTHORITY. What will they do with our econcomy as they blackmail the rest of the world? What will they do with the most powerful military on Earth, to other countries, to the protesters in our streets? I was on State Street in Madison, WI when the National Guard became a band of thugs. They were our Wisconsin National Guard. What would Blackwater do under the authority of the Patriot Act and an all powerful Republican President and Congress?
