The Power of the People is On the Move!
In August, 2011 WISCONSIN TRAILBLAZERS made history by recalling TWO Tea Partied Republican anti-American worker senators DESPITE Governor Walkers attempts to suppress their votes with Jim Crow ID laws and the closure of NINE voter ID-generating DMV sites. Yesterday Wisconsin Trailblazers submitted a historical ONE MILLION signatures to recall Governor Walker with nearly TWICE the 540,208 signatures required for submission. IN ADDITION to the Walker recall signatures, Wisconsin trailblazers, submitted 845,000 signatures to force the recall of Republican Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch along with petitions to recall FOUR Republican anti-American workers rights senators Terry Moulton, Pam Galloway, Van Wangaard and Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald. Close to TWO MILLION signatures were submitted in total. The Nation reported that no other gubernatorial recall drive in American history has gathered the signatures of so large a proportion of the electorate.

In November, 2011 OHIO voters repealed Tea Partied Republican Governor Kasichs and his Tea Partied Republican legislators anti-collective bargaining legislation; ARIZONA voters elected to recall anti-immigration Tea Partied Republican Senator Russell Pearce; MAIN voters repealed their Tea Partied legislators same day voter registration ban, and MISSISSPPI voters defeated their Tea Partied legislators life begins at the moment of fertilization anti-abortion and anti-birth control amendment.

MICHIGAN voters are pounding the pavement gathering signatures to recall Tea Partied Governor Rick Synder and his Tea Partied lawmakers MARTIAL LAW bill enabling the governor to appoint emergency managers. CBSnews.com reports that the bill takes every decision in a city or school district and puts it in the hands of the manager, from when the streets get plowed to who plows them and how much they are paid. U.S. Representative John Conyers, a Democrat who represents Detroit, said that in a given city, the governors new financial czar could force a municipality into bankruptcy, a power that will surely be used to extract further concessions from hardworking public sector workers. CBSnews.com, also, reports that emergency managers will have the power to null and void a contract. The Detroit Free Press revealed that the emergency manager would have the unilateral power to cut spending on schools, universities, prisons and communities. Emergency managers can, actually, shut down schools , municipal offices, communities and unions at will. To add insult to injury, Governor Synder has, already REPLACED ELECTED government officials with HIS appointed emergency managers!

IN ADDITION TO CONVINCING TEA PARTIED CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES TO PASS THE PRESIDENTS JOBS BILL; END THEIR PAYROLL TAX SHELL GAMES, AND DEFENDING CITIZENS RIGHT TO VOTE FROM REPUBLICAN ELECTED OFFICIALS VOTER SUPPRESSION LAWS, lets help Michigan voters in their fight for democracy at michiganrising.org michiganradio.org/term/committee-recall-rick-snyder-0 and firericksnyder.org.

Doesnt it feel good to be on the move? Thank you Wisconsin Trailblazers for leading the way!

1. Actually, Arizona led the way many years ago
They recalled that imbecile, racist, homophobic governor Evan Mecham, who would have fit right in with today's Tea Party.

The best part? The guy who led the recall movement was gay. :rofl:

2. Evan Mecham
A blast from the past
His term as governor blew up in his face
I did learn something I never knew before from him...
That pickaninny was a term of endearment
He also has a special note of distinction
He was the first U.S. governor to simultaneously face removal from office through impeachment, a scheduled recall election, and a felony indictment.
