Wisconsin Anti-Union Law Struck Down By Judge, But Measure Could Still Go Into Effect

Commented May 26, 2011 at 19:34:32 in Politics

“This is the kind of people who get elected when turnout is very low. Voting should always be important to every citizen in elections that can effect their lives.”

“Well Lefty, the country has roughly 30% people that identify themselves as liberal or democrat. So they can all come out and it won't make a difference. People get voted into office when independents vote for them. Not the standard parties. Not anymore.”

NoRepub on May 26, 2011 at 19:42:53

“And that's why Repubs are passing laws restricting voting wherever they can. They don't believe in democracy.”

“True. This is how all those Birchers got elected to Congress the last time, because Democrats stayed home. We can never take this stuff for granted. We absolutely must vote. All o us.”

Lenny Pigastis on May 26, 2011 at 19:37:53

“That would be what happens when Democrats get elected..of course they have to find some absentee ballots like for Al Franken in Minnesota.”

“Private sector salaries all come from consumers willingly paying for goods or services. They produce capital.

Public sector salaries all come from taxpayers unwillingly paying for services they often aren't even aware of. They consume capital.

Class dismissed.”

“The only advantage to this is that the Patriot Act creates jobs. Something this country is in desperate need of.”

“Think of all the opening that come up when dissenters are rounded up and placed in prison indefinitely with no legal counsole. I guess the sheeple will be more than happy to take their place in society.”

“Yep, lots of low paying, no benefits jobs... while someone is raking in our tax dollars as profit.”

“Obama ran on ending the wars. He should have stuck to it (in protest) even if he knew he couldn't end them overnight. Regarding the tax cuts for the top 1%, he should have fought against them harder.”

“We are in a similar situation to Spain because for the last ten years our government didn't collect enough taxes to fight two wars for ten years and withstand the damaged caused by a corrupt Wall Street.”

“President Obama by continuing the known failed conservative Republican policies of war and tax cuts for people who don't need them makes him partially responsible for some of our national debt.”

ProletarianRenegade on May 21, 2011 at 14:10:27

“It also makes him responsible for the spending cuts that become a political necessity once you make deficits bigger/worse.”
