It's Not Just Wisconsin, People!

The people of Wisconsin have been voicing their discontent over their newly elected governor's plan to remove the spine of the public employees' union.   Well, not all public employees. He is leaving the unions of the firefighters, state troopers, and police from his dismantling, for no other reason than those three groups voted for him in the November elections.   Hmmmm, that makes this sound more of a vendetta than one of cost cutting, it sounds more like one of enabling one to destroy opponents for future elections.


The gonadless Governor announced his plan on Friday February 11 and order the legislature to pass it on the 17th. Since then he has gone underground without any attempt at addressing any comments from residents of the State of Wisconsin, even though thousands have poured into Madison, as well as other locations throughout the state to voice their concerns, as a democracy, as set forth by our founding fathers, intended it to be.


The intentions of this governor and the other Tea Party gerbils is simply to destroy those groups who have traditionally backed Democrats.   It is politically motivated and nothing else, but if successful will create a authoritarian fascist society where corporations already control the power. This move will completely take the people out of the equation.


In observing the top ten groups backing political candidates only one, unions, backed democrats.   All others were supporting Tea Party/Republican candidates.


Now, the stated reason given by this governor is to cut costs due to the deficit, but when he took over the state had a several hundred million dollar surplus.   It also had federal money that would be used to create thousands of jobs which also would, in turn, add to the tax revenues the state would receive.   His first act, however, was to stop that, thus eliminating jobs and revenues while actually adding to the costs resulting in continued unemployment.


Not stopping there he gave huge tax cutting measures to corporations doing business in the state which has resulted in erasing the surplus he should have enjoyed  


This, he has done is less than one month since taking office, but we should not be entirely focusing on Wisconsin as what is being done there is but the beginning of what the Tea Party governors have in their game plan.   Soon, Ohio and Florida, to name two, will follow suit, but now are simply using the Wisconsin invasion to assist them in their attack in order to make their attack go more smoothly.


We, the people, should also be using this, and other attacks on our liberties, in order to prevent them from occurring in the future.   We should have learned long ago that politicians will say anything in order to get elected. We listened to Obama's cry for "Change" and look what we have -   nothing more than the same with absolutely no change. We listened to the Corporate Media Propagandists whose job it is to "sell" the candidate they are ordered to sell.   Remember, they are "corporate.'   My experience has been the person(s) the CMP "attacks' would be the best for the people.   In the 2008 presidential campaign they discredited Dennis Kucinich, who in the few debates he was allowed to take part in, actually won the polls taken afterwards.   They also had little or negative things to say about Ron Paul.   Hence, listen to the CMP and look more closely at those candidates they are discrediting as they more than likely would be the best for the people, you, over the corporations, them (remember the media is "corporate'). Years ago the CMP did a great job on Ross Perot who   warned against NAFTA and favored better paying jobs for American workers -- against corporate goals -- hence people did not listen to Perot, but to CMP and one can only wonder what our nation might look like today.
