Shock Doctrine. It's right here in Wisconsin with Walker in power. He has driven a wedge between people in this state. He has turned people against one another. He is governing with fear and hate. Eventually this will weaken and tire us to the point we will give in. With our psyche beat and state government in shambles, the stage is set for privatization of all aspects of governance. This is what Walker wants. This is what corporations want. This is what drives the Kochs.
You couldn't be more right, but unfortunately the message just doesn't seem to get to the people that need their minds changed. I don't know if it's the echo chamber they live in, general ignorance or simple laziness, but people's lack of desire or inability to educate themselves on such important issues boggles the mind. The media doesn't help when they use the "well both sides do it" mentality, but it's the people that are the problem. I guess they will just end up with the leaders they deserve. Unfortunately so will the rest of us.
What liberties has he taken away? Let's see public employees now have a choice to be in a the union or not. Most would say that is freedom and liberty. Collective bargaining for public employees is not a right. It was a privilege the government gave them. They now have the same collective bargaining power as federal workers. I recall Obama froze their pay with out bargaining or good faith negotiations. Where was the outrage over that? Oh that's right he is your guy. The Right wing wants the government to run your life? Please! Last I checked you guys on the left really want the government to run your lives. Nothing would make you happier than government run health care. That's literally the government running or should I say deciding your life. Lastly Walker drove a wedge in this state? Who threw the temper tantrum? Who ran off to Illinois? Who got fake sick notes after abandoning the children they claim to care so much about? Who has been spewing hate and vengeance for a year? Who chanted obscenities at a little girl? Who disrupted a special Olympics award presentation? Etc etc.. Yep that was all Walkers fault making you do those things. I understand I did the same sorts of things when my parents made me do things I didn't like either. Now I see they were the ones putting the wedge between us it wasn't me acting like a spoiled brat.
