2. You make some valid points

However, the thing is this. We failed to get our message out. Barrett did not have a cognizant plan on what he would do to Govern. The single biggest mistake we made was failing to get the truth out about the budget and impact of Walker's extreme agenda. He was parading out those numbers we all knew were BS saying he'd balanced the budget with no problem after shafting the unions. We know those numbers are bull, but we weren't ready with our own studies and information on it.

We all know the truth, instinctively. But we have to be ready to defend the truth. The Koch machine won't stop with the propaganda. We need the numbers to back us up.
