Scott Walker and his crony Erwin are trying to humliate the people who are protesting against him. He truly is a dictator. He is angry at the people he rules over, the people who try to express what the majority of Wisconsin wants (Remember, Wisconsin voted over whelmingly against Republicans however, thanks to gerrymandering, Republicans held control.)
That is how Walker thinks: "The idea that if you question the government, they don’t have to listen to you because you didn’t vote for them, you’re the opposition, you don’t matter! If you were for them, you wouldn’t be questioning them. Thing about that. It’s insulting to you but it’s actually three times more insulting for the people who voted for the government…It’s saying to those highly educated people, “You’re so dumb, you don’t have a word to say, we can do just what ever we want, just keep your mouth shut for four years.” The whole approach is a prima facie case of contempt... Why is it done this way? It's done this way because the maximum confusion is created in the population the population is unable to concentrate on the changes because everything is done at once...Meanwhile in that confusion, the government advances down the center and does whatever it wants...This is classic buinessness school management takeover strategy for corporations. You move in, you change everything in 24 hours and in the confusion, you get power."
Let that sink in for a moment.
That quote was not a quote about Scott Walker or Mitt Romney. Nor were these words written by George W. Bush. These words were said by John Ralston Saul in 1997 when American Fascist conservatism entered Canada. He looked at the Neo-Conservatives and their influence of Mike Harris who was the 22nd Premier of Ontario. A Premier is the same thing as a Governor. It's from a rare but worthwhile album called "No-Mega CD" if you can find it, get it.
Scott Walker has the power. Scott Walker is insulting the people of Wisconsin, and he lies. He only listens to those who has the same opinion as him. Which forces the people to desperately raise awareness to a media owned by the same people who own the governor. Our voice does not get out nor does it land in the ears of our leaders.
This makes me depressed, because I have no idea how to amplify our voice between elections beyond keeping doing what I'm doing.
Now, I'm going to start asking you this every episode in this story: please go to the paypal link and make a payment to help aid the protesters in paying legal fees or if you would rather send a check, please message Sue Trace and she will help you. They do have attorneys who are representing them for low or no cost. But at $36 per jury fee, the costs are mounting. These people are singled out by the Scott Walker administration and are trying be silenced instead of being allowed to express their Constitutionally protected rights.
