The Wisconsin recall election is one week from today, and progressives need to do everything we can to win.
Although the Voter-Discouragement trolls and saboteurs keep yapping, we all know that the Koch Bros-Scott Walker Occupation of Wisconsin was the inspiration for OWS! It was a 1% and RepubliCon (partisan) collaboration to conduct Shock Doctrine tactics on an American state, using updated tactics that 1%ers and Cons used on Chile with the installation of Pinochet. It's a strategy to redistribute wealth from public treasury to private offshore accounts. Class Warfare, without guns if possible. OWS and Occupy movements from coast to coast protest this Class Warfare.
UpDate: Don't be blinded by prejudice and hyperbole.

Koch Brothers' Americans For Prosperity Goes All Out in Wisconsin Recall--And Denies It! The spokesperson for the Koch Brothers' anti-union crusade claims their efforts are not on behalf of any candidate. May 28, 2012 |
DC-based special interest group Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is busing-in out-of-state Tea Partiers and spending millions on advertisements, rallies, and phone banks in the weeks before recall elections for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and four state senate seats. But the group founded and funded by New York-based oil billionaire David Koch insists its activities have nothing to do with the Wisconsin campaigns or elections. (CONTINUED)
We only have one chance to recall Scott Walker and elect Tom Barrett. But beating Walker isn't all that's at stake in this election. If progressives win, it will be a major victory over the Koch brothers and the entire movement of anonymous, big-money political influence.
Tom Barrett will do right by Wisconsinites who Scott Walker has betrayed. Now, as we enter the final week, a lot of progressives each contributing a little can give Tom the crucial boost of momentum that will propel him to victory on June 5.
Will you help out?
Contribute $5 to Tom Barrett today to boost his momentum entering the final week of the campaign and help beat Scott Walker.
More and more Wisconsin voters are looking to progressives as it becomes increasingly clear that Scott Walker has a severe problem with the truth.
After promising to work with Wisconsinites, he launched an unprecedented surprise attack on labor and voting rights. After promising to create jobs, Walker has presided over more jobs lost in Wisconsin than any other state in the country. And then there's an active corruption investigation surrounding Walker and his staff.
There's hardly a more honest or decent person in Wisconsin than Tom Barrett. And I'm so proud of the grassroots energy he's galvanized against Scott Walker and his ruthless divide-and-conquer tactics.
This is our opportunity to end Scott Walker's corporate agenda, and our best shot yet to notch a major progressive victory in this fight. Tom is gaining speed, and together, we can give him the extra push he needs in this last week to take back Wisconsin.
Will you contribute $5 to Tom Barrett today to boost his momentum entering the final stretch of the campaign and help beat Scott Walker?
Thank you for uniting as a progressive,
