Scott Walker, American Dictator in Waiting

Here's an excellent, thorough piece from Alternet that very accurately describes the Scott Walker we in Wisconsin have come to know, and who I sincerely hope the rest of America doesn't have to. This guy is very skilled in the highly toxic, divisive brand of politics he practices, and that makes him very dangerous. He started a club called "Jesus USA" when he was six years old that blended "patriotism" with his Baptist preacher father's fundamentalist religion. As we say in Wisconsin, uffda.

"Someday, a novelist with Wisconsin roots will tell the story of Walker’s engagement in squalid politics—and whether it carried him to the White House,”

1. Putting him into the Presidency will result in a secessionist war.

There would be areas of the country which would simply say, "We have had enough, we are out of here."

Walker is a mentally ill authoritarian and it don't think our republic can endure someone like him right now.

7. Only it's the blue states who'll secede

Real Americans don't have the stomach for a right-wing dictator (wannabe) like Scott Walker and may even pull out of the country to prove it.

2. Hasn't a novelist already told his story -- in "It Can't Happen Here?"

4. Yeah, I'd say Walker is dangerous. Promising war with Iran on the first day in office . . .

is well on the way to fascist dictatorship.

All three elements of fascism are there if he somehow becomes president — the melding of corporations, the government and the military.

We all know the koch brothers pull his puppet strings, he's promised war on day one and war of course means the military.

Of course we're all screwed if that happens but the repugs can't win the presidency anymore with the demographics of the country browning as we speak.

720,000 Mexican Americans become of voting age EVERY YEAR.

And that's just the Mexican American hispanics. The rest of the 35 some million Hispanics aren't voting for repugs either — well, maybe 5% of them will vote against their best interests.

And then there are African Americans, Asian Americans, gay Americans, women Americans disgusted with the republicans war against womens' rights, mixed-race Americans, Native Americans and progressive white Americans — a large majority of whom won't be pulling the lever or touching the screen for the regressive Republican party.

5. Don't forget Senior Americans

Attacks on medicare, social security, etc. will also kill most of the senior vote.
