Wisconsin is one of 18 states that have provisions in place for statewide recalls of elected officials. It requires signatures from 25% of the votes cast in the last election. The 14 Democrat Senators need to be held accountable for their actions today. Certainly its childish and any number of other things that come to mind. What’s fascinating is the stupidity of the electorate. The union protestors are certainly with-in their rights to object to the pending legislation they disagree with. I fully support them in marching and assembling at the State Capitol to voice their opinions. More power to them.
But to support the actions of the State Senators is foolishness. They are their elected officials put in place to represent their constituents. They have abdicated their responsibilities to the people of Wisconsin. They need to be held to account. This is spitting on the democratic process and should not be tolerated. All 14 should be recalled for evading their responsibilities. The people who support this action don’t realize the implications. What happens the next time when they may be on the other side of an issue? Will they still support them playing hide and seek?
This type of thing should have people across the country up in arms. If we start allowing this, we have no democratic process. Of course, our President was quick to come out and support the unions for their position. Where is he on the illegal actions of the State Senators? Not a peep. Maybe it’s Wisconsin today, but it might be your backyard tomorrow.
