When you are in a losing game, public opinion is against you, and campaigns have been mounted to remove your supporting senators from office the logical choice would be to re-evaluate the bill you are trying to pass.
But then you wouldn’t be Scott Walker.
So far this week he has threatened to lay off employees if his AWOL democrats don’t return or the bill does not pass, taken to childish measures of revoking the photocopy privileges for the democratic senators, and issued orders for the arrest of the democrats.
Resorting to blackmail, gross abuse of power, and resembling a dictator? Well, at least it is what I would expect from the neo-conservative party.
Funny, how all of this could have been avoided by compromise instead of thuggery, isn’t it?
When you have some one in office who is willing to shut everything down, waste time, money and resources just so they can have it their way, the democratic process is truly lost.
Even in during the Health Care Reform and Wall Street “Reform” ideas were excepted from the opposing party; not that Fox News was going to let any one know that. Over partisanship does little more than create chaos and create oppression.
Lastly, a particular media outlet would have us believe that these people are thugs, rather than the people who protect you, keep you alive when your sick or injured, keep your house from burning down, and babysit your children for 9 hours a day. This network would also like us to believe that this is some how the fault of the democrats and their “running” away was immoral or somehow incorrect. What they don’t mention; however, is that one Abraham Lincoln who, at the time, was a state representative and did the exact same thing as the Wisconsin Democrats.
Regardless of the viewpoint, the people have a right to be heard and represented; trying to prevent that is the biggest mockery of the political process and the Constitution that there is. The fact that these actions are coming from the so-called party of “Constitution” believers tell me as much as I need to know, it also tells me that they haven’t actually taken the time to read it.
