Forum Post: Every Wisconsinite Must Vote

Posted 2 years ago on May 30, 2012, 3:29 a.m. EST by PR1 (120)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Everyone in Wisconsin who believes in American democracy and a future for average Amercans must vote in the recall election! The re-election of Walker would be a heavy blow to the social justice movement and a huge propaganda victory for the 1%!

The fact that the DNC chose not to back Barrett also says everything positive about Barrett and the real threat he represents to the establishment. So this is also a good time to send a message to the sold-out arm of the Democratic Party. Absolutely nobody in Wisconsin has an excuse to sit this one out!

If you are an Independent Wisconsinite this would be a great time to deal a blow to both the 1% and to the pro-establishment, sold-out element of the Democratic Party!

Daily Kos - Keep fighting.

Dan, our best bet to beat Scott Walker next week is high voter turnout, and in cities like Madison, LaCrosse and Milwaukee, turnout is indeed huge.

http://kos.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=B7kCEJDeJ9iastwMrm0jeKw6KjJoSt2J

Supporters of Scott Walker are responding with tactics that are clogging up phone lines at Tom Barrett's campaign headquarters:

http://kos.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=Nte1fU5%2Bj0DmjwtRBhweJaw6KjJoSt2J

The campaign headquarters of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was inundated Tuesday with outraged callers who received an anonymous text message accusing Barrett of being a "union puppet."

The message, which came from WI@obamasaliar.com, said this:

"Tom Barrett is a Union Puppet who will give Union Thugs everything they want. Call & ask why 414.271.8050."

That is the phone number for the main campaign office for Barrett, a Democrat running against Gov. Scott Walker in the June 5 recall election. For a short period Tuesday afternoon, the Barrett campaign number appeared to be out of service from the flood of calls.

It's sadly typical that Republicans are trying to mess with Democratic efforts to get out the vote, but it also shows they know high turnout means trouble for Scott Walker.

Keep fighting, Chris Bowers Campaign Director, Daily Kos

OWS should not be offering particular solutions to the problems it is protesting. Else, the protest fragments and solidarity is lost. It's easy to gather socialists, capitalists, communists, anarchists, etc... together to fight against the current problems in US, but it is impossible for them to agree on a solution because they all have different ideologies.

Protest, but don't provide solutions. Use other groups than OWS to do that.

http://occupywallst.org/forum/on-ows-advantages-dis-advantages-misconceptions-an/


It makes little sense to provide free adverts for the current government (Obama), when OWS protesters fight against this current government (Obama) on the field every day!

[-] 5 points by DKAtoday (22355) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

OWS is not offering-up support for any party or politician. It is pointing out issues to the people and the people are making their own plans.

I am a person = one of the people.

I am not telling anyone that OWS or Occupy or 99% support these things.

I am pointing out what I support.

Support for the people not for profit.

Common cause issues for unity against the status-quo greedy corrupt criminals.

Endlessly switching usernames to hide the incredible unpopularity of your comments is an effort to pervert free-speech, and anyone who does it and still whines all the time about their incredible purity and moral stance is just full of shit. Let your arguments stand or fall like everyone else's, and then maybe you could spout this blather and we won't just laugh at you. But I doubt it.

(No reply button, below) He's here because he believes in OWS. There's other non-political issues at stake. You gotta remember, this forum wasn't supposed to turn into partisan politics. In fact, technically, it wasn't supposed to talk about politics at all. It was originally conceived as a place to coordinate protests and actions, and a place for Occupiers to connect. In jart's words, from her "Watch me test this thing" post a few months ago, responding to a poster:

[-] 1 by jart (808) from Brooklyn, NY 4 months ago

"If you didn't create for debate and discussion, was it your intention (if you don't mind me asking) that the site be used more for action / planning of actions / spreading real news etc.?"

Bingo! We also had the same intention when we started /r/occupywallstreet but watched it quickly turn into a place where people talk about politics rather than actually working to make the event happen. That's just how reddit is, people like to debate. So I figured rather than fighting that tendency, letting reddit be the D&D board and whipping up a quick and dirty forum (based on the article commenting system I'd already written) that would be specifically for organizers and to build upon the map system which was already helping radicals get in touch with others in their local area.

People, see Shock Doctrine (Netflix & Vimeo). Wisconsin is Shock Doctrine on American soil.
