The Haters Have been Planning This For 4 Years. Don't Boo ...Vote!

This is the day the haters in America have been planning for more than 4 years. From the moment Barack Obama was elected president in November of 2008 to the eve of his inauguration, a radical minority have conspired to destroy his presidency by any means necessary short of assassination. Before he served even one day in the Oval Office, a select group of congressmen and right-wing media operators vowed to obstruct his every move even if it meant to hurt the economy and destroy lives to smear his name like none ever before him.

Very sadly, a congressman and governor including a majority of legislators from our own state of Wisconsin sit front and center at the core of this political ideology that wins not by unity but by division. Not through the strength of collaboration and community, but by disempowering and conquering others. They message forward movement not through means of their own mobility, but by preventing others from passing them and taking the lead. The more they obstruct and divide, the bolder they get. Their media enablers writes up their actions as courageous.

I’m putting this as mildly as I can. Those who are informed have seen state legislators from around the country proudly declare that their newly enacted laws sole purpose is to defeat Barack Obama, whether by defunding supporters or shutting down their voices and their vote. We have seen a cable news station devote their entire programming to the single-minded cause of destroying the president of the United States and his political party. Their candidate for the White House, Mitt Romney, is on the record saying that if he loses the election his party will avenge his loss by wrecking the U.S. economy – again. This is the Republican party.

In Wisconsin, we have heard the voices of over 100,000 people gather in Madison to oppose these classwar bills and their authors, only to fall on deaf ears. In truth, it doesn’t matter how many people show up at Obama’s or Romney’s rallies. They could have 500, 10,000 or 100,000 show up. All it does is make for a photo opportunity. What matters most is how many show up to vote.

One more time now. They have been planning Election Day 2012 every day relentlessly for four years beginning from the day of his inauguration. Obama could have discovered the cure for Alzheimers and cancer, invented a molecular human transporter or dropped the unemployment rate down to zero and none of it would have mattered. Once the lies and deception took hold, they never really cared or gave him the fair shot every president deserves. Yet despite their drive to demonize and destroy him, America has moved forward under his leadership.

So why would Americans want to reward their toxic mentality and behavior with high public office? It's not American and it doesn't make sense. We have to be better than that. We must be better.
