This Tuesday is essentially a referendum on the very survival of the American Union. The vote to recall anti-labor Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is of tremendous significance. June 5th means A LOT to the workers of America and the world. Electing Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett would help Democrats and labor unions tremendously. So the GOP is putting out all the stops to prevent this from happening. They might just succeed too, sadly.

The opposition to unions is very rich and very powerful. Billionaires around the nation, especially the Koch Brothers have donated over $30 million, about 20 times more than Barrett has raised in this recall effort. They despise unions. Why? Because they hinder their efforts to make obscene profits. Even Willard Romney has appeared with Walker and thrown in his support, as profit is all that matters to these monsters.

Governor Walker and Willard Romney could care less about the American worker and it’s about time we stop them in their selfish quest to do away with our rights! I’m calling on you Wisconsin to do the right thing Tuesday. Please recall Governor Walker!

  1. The Demonic Duo a.k.a. as The Koch Brothers will stop at nothing to spread their evil agenda. These two are the devil incarnate. They continue to pump poison into both the physical and political landscape of our country, as well as the rest of the planet-All because of their insatiable lust for power and money. Their father was a union hating bastard, and these two are merely the dregs of his sorry seed. Daryl
