Governor Scott Walker took a state headed for a great surplus and instituted tax cuts for his Republican friends, which turned the surplus into a huge deficit. Now is using this deficit to justify the crucifixion of labor. He is attempting to eliminate collective bargaining and increase the burden on the middle and lower class of Wisconsin.
Besides attempting to transfer wealth to his friends he wants to break the back of the middle class. He wants to destroy public education. He is the point man for the Koch’s Tea Party that intends to replicate these policies nationwide. It is time to shut them down. We need to take what is happening in Wisconsin to every state capital that has a Tea Party governor and remove them.
As Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Our lives ARE at stake. The time for action is now. In addition to Wisconsin, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, and Florida would be good places to start. It worked for Gandhi and Martin Luther King. The time is now.
