57. Causes are many and you've hit on a few.
One of the biggest is Koch-style buying of politicians and political seats.

They lied. Walker lied. The other Republican pig-f***ers lied. Ron Johnson lied. All the while they drowned out the rational voices in the media with their lying ads.

Voter apathy followed - not as a cause but as a symptom of unlimited, unregulated money in politics.

As this OP shows, hopefully Walker and the rest of the koch-heads are toast. We still have a lot of work to do. These signatures are the easy one. The low hanging fruit. I won't rest easy until we have 700,000 signatures.

This is a first step in derailing the money train. We might fail. We might win. But either way, we're full steam ahead.
