Stop The Madness!

When will this end?
Today marks the first of nine summer recall elections related to the passage of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial bill to limit collective bargaining and to require public employees to pay more into their health and pension plans. Three Democrat senators and six Republican senators face a Wisconsin voting public that wants a second say about them. Nor will the efforts to recall Wisconsin legislators end with state senators. Democrats have vowed to recall Walker, as well.

But the attempt to oust the steadfast Badger State executive demands high Democratic turnout and low GOP participation in the special election — and Democrats are already worried that, if they start collecting signatures for Walker’s recall in the fall, the recall election itself will fall on the same day as the GOP presidential primary next spring when GOP turnout would be especially high. The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent explains...

You know, I'm getting damned sick and tired of this. The radio and TV are littered with political ads. It's in the news at every turn. ENOUGH ALREADY. You democrats are acting like spoiled children. You, who opposed voter ID because it would "disenfranchise" voters, are seeking to disenfranchise every single person who voted Republican in the 2010 election cycle. Can you not see that you are trampling on the will of the majority of voters?? Between protests, senators running away from home, lawsuits, and now the recall elections, we taxpayers are paying quite a price for your hissy fits.

I know you miss the days of Diamond Jim Doyle. You miss the halcyon days of taxing, spending, unions running the show. I get that. But Wisconsin decided that we'd had about enough of that. We decided to FINALLY become fiscally responsible...to balance our budget. To put our house in order. Scott Walker's campaign focused on these ideas, and guess what? Seems as if the majority of us LIKED that idea. And now that he's putting that plan into action, y'all are attempting every trick in the book to try to negate the will of the people.

Someone once said elections have consequences. It's beyond time you realize it.
