5. Do you know what you are talking about concerning WI? I live here, and I do.
I have confidence in our voting machines and how ballots are counted. So please don't attach the voting problems in other states to Wisconsin because frankly, I haven't heard of them here.

You want to know why Walker got elected here? Really? It was because hundreds of thousands of those who voted for Obama could not be bothered to get out and vote here last November because they were unmotivated, disappointed, or demoralized or some other excuse. That's why Walker was elected and it had nothing to do with electronic voting or any other kind of voter fraud.

The prima donna wide receivers in football always cry for a flag when they miss a pass because if they didn't catch the ball that means that someone had to have interfered with them. Democrats are getting that way with election losses, that it had to be fraud because otherwise how could we ever lose? Well sometimes you lose because the people actually prefer the other candidate, or maybe, like here, your people didn't bother to get out and vote.

Governments are formed, policies and laws are made as a result of those who choose to show up and participate in the process. This "wah!, wah!, wah! we was robbed" attitude and excuses gets old. It's time for action, so here in Wisconsin we need to work to get out the vote in each and every recall election.

A sign I saw in Madison:
