This is getting unreal! I was out “communicating” with some signature collectors today, they stand on streets with signs saying “Recall Walker”. I’m happy to report these people are fairly good with sign language and understand the concept of reading between the lines!
Seems like Adolf Hitler gets to vote, as long as he has a valid WI address
So I could just pick a street, any street, and sign the petition with any name I wanted to as many times as I wanted to using the addresses on that street and it would be valid?
Things like this can be the spark for an armed rebellion. Just sayin...
I’m signed up
Nah... but people will talk about it a lot... that's what Americans do well... is talk about things.
Sounds to me like the deck is being stacked against Walker on this one. They must have a good indication the recall will be successful.
I think you need to belong to a gubmint union, too.
Are these petitions just to get it on the ballot?
Give it time, it’s a comin’.
This is a most outrageous abuse of signature gathering. One hopes Walker’s people will challenge each of these “suspicious” fake signatures. Counting Mickey Mouse? This is a new low even by the abusive low standards and tactics used in CA.
Be aware that some don't talk.
Keep your head down when it gets quiet.
The left, all over this country, is doing its best to create a bananna Republic out of our nation.
They somehow believe that their handlers like Obama and company will take care of them when they succeed.
They do not know that they are today’s, modern useful idiots and they are already marked for destruction once the gloves come off and the marxist have a clear, unobstructed avenue to total power.
But, the thing about banannas is that they are easy to slip on and get hurt. That’s where they are headed.
The second amendment is still strong in the land and their are 160 million people armed here, with something like 650,000,000 weapons and billions of rounds of ammo. They may try, but they are not going to get around that and when the people who really care about the country have had enough...it is not going to be pretty.
They think they can push it to that and still overcome America. They are wrong...but make no mistake, it will be very ugly and very messy.
On the other side, once the constitution is preserved and restored, should it come to that, there will be a renewed appreciation for honor, for integrity, the truth, moral values and our constitutional principles that will last a long, long time before people forget the cost.
I pray we can avoid it. I fear that one of our last chances is coming here in 2012.
America at the Crossroads of History
Yep. That’s my interpretation.
Note post #6 in particular.
One man admitted on local TV in WI that he had signed 80 petitions.
That is legal.
Collecting petition signatures and not turning them in is illegal.
We hava a real mess here in WI and the GAB has no plans to do anything about it.
History will record whether we were successful at maintaining our national defense while at the same time waging an internal struggle to save our Constitution. Of course, it may take many decades before that history can be written.
Is there any way that this “process” can be challenged at the WI Supreme Court ?
Sure hope so!!
The LaFollette name is prevalent enough in WI politics that he probably didn’t need any Soros help. Note that the OFFICIAL state web page has a slam at the current administration - http://www.sos.state.wi.us/
MILWAUKEE Late Monday evening, Media Trackers released the results of a wide-reaching investigation into voting irregularities that occurred from a property owned by Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee). The investigation found that a property owned by Sen. Taylor contains no fewer than 36 active voter registrations, a number that far exceeds the number of individuals allowed to live at the property according to the City of Milwaukee.
Read more at the website if you can stand it. This is the rampant fraud we are dealing with here in Wisconsin. The “Government Accountability Board” was appointed by the crook Gov Doyle back in 2008 to replace Wisconsin’s elections and ethics committee. Doyle appointed 6 former liberal activist judges to make up the board. I have no idea how this got through the Republicans at that time,but it is here to stay. They refuse to check anything on the petitions other than a name and address. It is up to individual citizens to spend their time trying to prove fraud in our own time and own dime.
It would be almost funny, if it was not so serious
Wow, that’s stunning. Generally the courts are biased toward voter rights, but this is absurd.
No. LaFollette has been SOS for many years, but he is an evil man who has lain low in his little job until recently. A friend of mine has a summer cottage near his, and my friend was ORDERED by him to remove his flag and pole from his land. The SOS’s words: “Move that flag and pole back into the woods where nobody can see it.” My friend refused, and the flag still flies.
But, this is just a glimpse into his character. He’s the one who refused to publish the laws that the new legislature passed earlier this year, preventing them from going into effect in a timely manner. He waitied until the very last minute, thus preserving more time for union contracts to be signed. He shot himself in the foot on that one, however, because the school districts who signed new contracts had to lay off teachers, whereas the ones who went with the new law had no layoffs and are showing surpluses.
Hypothetically, if I were a property owner in Wisconsin who did NOT support recall, and someone unknown to me were allowed to use MY address to forge a signature on a recall petition, I would accuse that person of STEALING the benefits of my property ownership.
How can this NOT be identity theft because of their misuse of my address that I pay property taxes on?
“...when the people who really care about the country have had enough...it is not going to be pretty...”
In the grand span of history, we’re still a young country.
These are Growing pains.
And Pain is a good thing sometimes...it makes you remember you’re alive and still in the fight. It makes you remember that the cancer is there, and time is precious, and you either have to cut it out of you, or curl up and die because of it.
For the record, curling up and letting them win is NOT an option.
We’ve inherited the battle that previous generations didn’t want to fight - right here on our own soil. They fought it overseas, hoping it would never get here. But it has.
We believed we could “work things out” with the other side, through the political process - and all the while, the other side was busily subverting the political process in their favor for a future date to use against us. I always believed that they waited for the WWII/Korean War generation to become too weak physically, politically, and financially to be able to do anything more to stop them.
They worked on generations of kids - the 20, 30 and 40 somethings right now.
And they waited for this moment in time to really push all-out for their little revolution. Does anyone seriously believe that Fast & Furious was ANYTHING other than a deliberate, malicious attempt at subverting the Second Amendment? Thank God there are still some Patriots left in the ATF and other organizations that blew the whistle on it and exposed these slimewads for who and what they are.
Everything they do is designed to perpetuate their stupid ideology at the expense of all else.
No, you are absolutely correct...they DO think they can overcome Americans. But they are wrong. Stupidly, arrogantly and dangerously wrong.
History has proven time and again that determined men and women, fighting for their freedom from overbearing, totalitarian governments can and will prevail.
“We are enough to do our country loss...”
F***’em. Tally ho.
So...how many of us are driving around the WI coutry-side signing as many petitions as we can find?
Those who lack integrity are COUNTING on you to preserve your integrity.
Sometimes the “revolution” can be repulsive to those in the correct position.
Very immature behavior at that secretary-of-state website.
Two weeks ago my girlfriend and I went to the Kenosha Museum. A woman came up to us and wanted to sign the petitiion to recall (not sure if this is legal getting signature at museum) When we both told her Scott Walker was a great Gov. and every state needs someone like him.
To say the least she started to yell at us called us stupid etc.
We went inside and complained and the curator went outside and gave her a warning.
We knew how he stood on the situtation.
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
— Thomas Jefferson
It doesn’t surprise me.
Democrats rely on vote fraud.
I’ve often wondered if Jefferson actually ever dropped a hammer on any of the tyrants of his day...
If that’s the case, then ultimately this won’t be such a big deal. If this gets on the ballot, then if the people want him to stay, he’ll stay, and if they want him to go, he’ll go.
I guess ol’ “Fighting Bob” La Follette, Sr., wasn’t what he was cracked up to be by the WI liberal inteligentsia??
I hope so; but we are talking about the people of WI here.
LaFollette has been Secy of State since long before Soros began his campaign to fundamentally transform the U.S.A., but I have no doubt that LaF is wholly in accord with the aims of Soros.
I left Wisconsin in 1987, and I’m quite certain that LaF had been Sec State for a number of years at that time.
Actually, I’m extrapolating it to the whole country.
There’s a LOT of pissed off people here in the country, brother. People that still remember what it used to be like, when you could do what you wanted to do with your own money, your own land, your own family.
There’s still enough people that want that back. More people than we realize; they’re just quieter about it.
We’re the vocal ones out here.
The left knows their time is short. They’re desperate and are doing stupid things to screw themselves over, wrecking their little conspiracy and tipping their hands to people still not quite sure of what’s happening.
Have faith, Tedster...there’s still Americans out here.
Folks in WI better get with the program or your guy will get recalled... it just happened here in Arizona with the author of the SB 1070 (illegal immigration) bill because people thought it was too ridiculous to succeed. They will cheat and stop at NOTHING to remove our most effective people.
I wanted to see if the petition has any language regarding false statements, names, etc.
Do petitions usually have language to the effect that by signing the petition you certify that your name and address are correct and that you are a resident of the jurisdiction?
Democrats know better than anyone how to destroy a republic.
Frankly, I kind of hope they succeed in forcing a recall - and that Walker wins in a landslide.
