I was at the rally. Yesterday was a hard day for WI (and for the nation). If Walker and his allies get away with this in WI - other extremist governors will become even more brazin in their attacks.

The recalls are important - they are our best line of defense.

But.. the extremists have a national agenda. What we are experiencing in WI is just part of a coordinated national attack. And... long-term... the most legitimate response is for WE the PEOPLE to rise up en masse, nationwide. That is why I started this petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/WeThePeople/


For one day - let us speak with one voice - in Solidarity - across the nation - so loudly we can't be ignored. Use Labor Day 2011 to rise up en masse all over America & demand an end to Corp Welfare, corp tax loopholes and top 2% Bush tax cuts. Sign this petition; then "like" our facebook page to stay updated.

What does your group plan on doing for Labor Day 2011? Whatever it is... where ever it is.... join the movement and make it about these core issues: Ending Corp Welfare & corporate tax loopholes and rescinding the top 2% Bush tax cuts. For one day - let us speak with one voice - en masse - across the nation - so loudly we can't be ignored.

our best line of defense is election integrity - hand counted paper ballots on election night. Our elections are not safe and its very possible that Walker and the others weren't truly elected...the recalls won't matter if our elections aren't safe
