Need I say more? Probably.
I can’t believe that the Democrats could eff this up after all that. Well, I can, actually. I’ve been a Green Party member for a very long time (1998? 99?) because of times like this, and policies that helped get us where we are. So, I’m actually not too surprised or too disappointed, as it is what I have come to expect.
I don’t know what else to say.
Anyone have some ballot bags with 180,000 ballots in it, how about an Access Database that isn’t right?
On a more positive note, not written by me (but I’ll put my name on it as co-chair) since I wasn’t in the mood to be more positive . . . but here’s a thought from Progressive Dane.
The results from yesterday’s Wisconsin recall election were, to say the least, disappointing. After many months of struggle, organizing and grassroots efforts to take back Wisconsin from polarizing, divisive, community destroying policies from Governor Scott Walker and his allies in the legislature, the People of Wisconsin fell short. The pain of this result is felt strongly here in Dane County, where the movement to take Wisconsin back was first born on a cold February Day in 2011. As the tolerant and progressive community that we are, we of course were immediately a target of the policies of the Walker administration. It is likely that Scott Walker, even as a cloud of corruption and criminality engulf him, will take up renewed vigor to wreck the communities of Dane County that we hold dear. However, the time is not for fear or extended grieving, but a new sense of purpose and new call to action as we go head first into the coming challenges ahead. Progressive Dane is and always has been dedicated to building and promoting a progressive movement in Dane County, that seeks to make the cities, towns and villages we inhabit a better and greater place to live. As we move forward, we will be asking ourselves and our allies in the community, what must be done to safeguard Dane County families in the coming months? What tactics must be used? What ideas must be invented, reinvented or discarded? What alliances and coalitions must we seek to mobilize? It is Progressive Dane’s hope that in the coming days, weeks and months that these answers will unveil themselves to the broader community. At the very least, a protective shell must be formed around Dane County, Wisconsin to protect it from the worst excesses of this Administration currently occupying the capital. That alone will not be enough. Only a strong united front will prove to be effective. As we move forward in the summer, Progressive Dane hopes to organize like minded groups, communities and people to continue organizing for a Dane County we can be proud of. Will you join us?
Yeah, back to work. Tho, I’m thinking about my own general strike for today . . . not very effective, eh? But it might help to start the day with a bloody mary . . . sigh . . . I guess I’ll go to work.
