Recall effort to take back the state By Dick and Gail Gumness
This is “Democracy at work.” This is Wisconsin grass roots at work. This is the power of the people. This is dedication, loyalty, energy, perseverance and hard work at its best.
This is 1.9 million signatures to recall Walker, his Lt. Gov. and four Republican senators.
This is from the “minority” of Wisconsin residents that the governor sorely miscalculated when he said he wasn’t worried because these protestors are just a minority. Well, Mr. Governor this just shows how much you are in touch with the people from our great state of Wisconsin.
We put our chips on those people you’ve disenfranchised, who did take the time to sort through all your half truths, some downright lies, your cronyism, your tax relief for the upper one percent, your union busting, your stripping public education of millions and millions of dollars that directly impacts every single aspiring student in our state, your attack on voter’s rights with the new insidious voter ID plan and the stripping of healthcare at clinics for women who cannot afford health insurance.
You may have a slight memory problem, but the people of Wisconsin are remembering every single despotic effort you have made: thus 1.9 million signatures to recall you, your Lt. Gov and four Republican senators…signatures, weighing 1.5 tons of paper.
Incredible work from an energized Wisconsin electorate…thank you very much…and here we come to take back our beloved state of Wisconsin!
