7. Interesting How The Governor Was Considering Planting Folks To Disrupt From The Inside
Which is why I am always suspicious of folks who repeatedly attack Democrats from the "left," but give Republicans a free pass. In Wisconsin, the Democratic members of the legislature have been holding out against a gross effort to roll back collective bargaining.

I know some folks like to advocate apathy and inaction as the path to power, but the efforts by Republicans to use their majorities to wipe out unions illustrates the folly of such a strategy.

Personally, I think the proponents of such a strategy of Democrats sitting out elections are the same folks who benefit from it, the right.
