Down to the nitty-gritty

This has been a rough year for Wisconsin.

We've seen our proud traditions hijacked by a ruthless right-wing, corporate agenda and told that we're "better off because of it".

But we've fought back...and we've fought back valiantly.

And Tuesday will tell us if we have been successful.

So let's make it clear what's at stake here...

Tuesday will tell us if people count more than money.
Tuesday will tell us if corporations own the government or if people own the government
Tuesday will tell us if the right to organize and negotiate for wages and working conditions is still alive in Wisconsin
Tuesday will tell us what kind of model Wisconsin will be for the rest of the nation...a model of democracy or corporate rule.
Tuesday will tell us if a few billionaires have succeeded in breaking the will of an entire state...and if they can do it throughout the nation

I don't know where this will go on Tuesday.

I've run into a lot of kool-aide drinkers in the past few weeks and I've seen families divided over the issues like I've never seen before...I am worried about the unthinking-unreasoning minions who follow Walker like they follow the Green Bay Packers..."my team against your team..my team right or wrong"

But I've also run into a lot of really folks dedicated to the spirit of Wisconsin...and I've seen the hours they've put into this effort and the size of their hearts.

Go vote on Tuesday...and bring a friend with you...or maybe two or three friends....

There's a lot at stake here.
