Shame on you, Wisconsin! By giving Scott Walker a substantial victory in last night’s election, you told every crackpot far-right extremist governor in the country that it’s perfectly ok to squash public and even private sector labor unions! You also convinced far-right economic bully billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson that they can safely buy whatever election result they want in any election they want! Just wait until you see the end result of this election, when these same bully billionaires start to demand big returns on their investment at your expense!
You have stabbed your neighbors, fellow workers, and Wisconsin’s elderly and needy in the back!
You have enabled a self-centered, uncaring far-right fanatic, and have possibly aided his political future on the national level!
You have destroyed all possibility of shrinking the ever-widening income gap in your state!
You have abandoned your fellow teachers, police, firefighters, and thousands of other state employees at a time when they needed you the most!
You have chosen to further the cause of corporate greed!
You have vindicated that terrible Scott Walker, and legitimized his previous anti-democratic actions!
You have stabbed progress in the back, and have rewarded regression and reaction!
WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING WHEN YOU CAST YOUR VOTE FOR THAT ARROGANT, SMUG, POSSIBLE FELON? WERE YOU CRAZY?!?
Mark my words, those who voted against recalling Scott Walker: you have made a horrible mistake, and you will soon regret this mistake for a great many years to come!
