What is at stake here are not only the wages and benefits but the right for American workers to form an association or union to seek better lives for themselves. To seek the best wages, working conditions, benefits and pensions possible through discourse, negotiation and hard work. That's pure capitalism. Imagine two people trying to work the lowest price on a home purchase and the armed buyer just says, "forget it, because I can't afford it, I have nothing to negotiate. I'm taking the house and burning it down." That's Walker.
Why does Walker hate freedom? Why does Walker hate capitalism?
The following excerpt is from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin
Today is a dark day in the history of our state and that is exactly why I'm asking you to take the following four steps to fight for Wisconsin's middle class.
1. Call, write or e-mail your local legislators, Republican or Democrat: Let them know you oppose the power grab by Walker that puts the Wisconsin way of life in peril.
2. Call Scott Walker himself: Let him know that raising the specter of the National Guard is inflammatory and not what we expect out of our leaders. Tell him him to work for all the citizens of the state, and not just for his corporate contributors.
3. Canvass your community: The most effective action that you can take is to talk to your friends and neighbors about protecting the rights of working families in Wisconsin. It is essential that you, our grassroots activists across Wisconsin, start canvassing today.
4. Rally and respond: Beginning on Tuesday and Wednesday we will be rallying at the Capitol, as Walker seeks to impose his skewed values on Wisconsin. Join us in Madison to make your voice heard.
This was a very bad day for all working people in Wisconsin. But now is the time to let your voices be heard. Now is the time to fight for Wisconsin's way of life.
