I don't support the recall but living in the middle of N. Milwaukee I have no choice but to vote against Walker- again.

Even though I don't really think we need public unions all that much I would vote to recall to protect private unions (if I lived in WI).

The time for fat cat unions has passed. We simply can no longer afford them.

Yeah but who is going to support Democrats if the unions go? They got the Koch brothers and Karl Rove. Who do we got? Unless you want mostly Republicans to be elected. Or take Wall Street money (like the Democrats were forced to do). In that case you are not really for the 99% because Republicans and Wall Street don't give a crap about the 99%'s concerns.

? A lot of things that unions fought for filtered down to non-union workers and most people who vote for democrats aren't in unions. Tom Barrett has to remind people that the unions don't like him because he wants them to at least come to the bargaining table. The unions wanted Falk. She's a real-estate agent. A lot of people here are trying to save face because they didn't see that the 2010 elections were a big deal with the rise of the Tea Party. I'm sure many people who are involved with OWS on the ground are aware of this recall. OWS is a big deal, the Tea Party is a big deal. This recall is just Wisconsin BS.

Do you really think Democrats give a crap? Democrats care about power, reality is, poor people tend to vote Democrat, tax paying middle class don't. Who is really making war on the middle class? Who is removing opportunity as fast as they are able?

Soros will continue to fund the left and would most likely increase his participation should unions go the way of the dodo bird.

BTW, the Koch brothers are pikers compared to the very generous Soros.

To the so-called Democratic Party everyone is a special interest group, including unions. They gave up on the country about 15 years ago so they're just wankers I vote for. I don't except them to accomplish anything. At least the democrats take the time to lie to me, republicans don't even bother to do that.
