The battle between grassroots organizing and big corporate money is heating up in Wisconsin

1 post / 0 new

A new poll by Marquette Law School shows Governor Scott Walker and likely Democratic opponent, Tom Barrett, in a dead heat among registered voters in the upcoming recall election. The poll shows Walker losing popularity among voters as his numbers have declined each month since January.

At the same time – Walker has dumped millions into TV advertising and announced that he raised a mind-boggling $13 million for his campaign in just three months. Most of that money comes from fundraising trips Walker has taken to New York and Texas to collect checks from out-of-state banksters and oil barons. But so far – the big cash haul isn’t helping Walker – which is a promising sign for “we the people” heading into a multi-billion dollar general election this year.

As long as working people stay organized, get active, and vote – then it doesn’t matter how much the billionaires spend. They still just have one vote – and there’s a lot more of us than there are of them.

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
