The right wing has figuratively declared war on the left, and as the right becomes more radical, they are becoming angrier and more belligerent, and crying and whining if they can't continue to funnel money to the top 1% who fund their elections. But it's not just the lawmakers. It's their idiot followers, and the mainstream media which is owned by right wing interests, it's the Koch Brothers and Karl Rove and Grover Norquist.
How else do you explain the fact that they support Herman Cain as a potential commander-in-chief, when he knows less about foreign policy than my four-year old son? Or that they think the alleged sexual harassment cases against Cain are fabricated, but annihilate Bill Clinton or Anthony Weiner for what they did? Or that a freshman congressman like Joe Walsh can preach "fiscal responsibility" while being delinquent on his child support payments?
And of course, now city leaders are colluding to drive the Occupy movements out, resorting to police brutality. Imagine if police had done this at Tea Party rallies. Just imagine that, and imagine how they would discuss that on Fox News.
In Wisconsin, we are now able to collect signatures to recall Governor Scott Walker. Click here, by the way, to download a petition. But right wing scare tactics and dirty tricks are being employed once again--the United Wisconsin website was hacked yesterday after they launched earlier in the day to spearhead the recall efforts. Folks are planning to gather signatures and burn the petitions. Read more about that on the awesome Brad Blog.
I try every time I post a blog here, I start out thinking I'm going to write calmly and stick to the facts. But it's hard to do that when the other side plays so dirty and continues to try and rig the game and rig the system and rig the way we live our lives. It won't happen for much longer, folks. We are fed up and we're not going to take it anymore. Somehow, some way, justice will prevail, and we will get back to having the country our founding fathers wished for us--a true democracy.
