Wisconsin Democrats count on recalls to take control of Senate
pioneer press ^ | 5-29-12 | todd richmond

All eyes will be on Republican Gov. Scott Walker as he fights for his political life in the June 5 recall election, but a handful of undercard recall races could transform Wisconsin politics just as dramatically.

While folks across the state pull the lever for Walker or his Democratic challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, pockets of voters in southeastern, northwestern and central Wisconsin will decide recall elections that could hand Democrats control of the state Senate.

Attention citizens of Wisconsin:

You WILL vote until you select the proper candidates to advance our masters’ socialist causes. It is the proper function of a democracy, to elect socialists for life.

1/2 of the WI Senate is up for reelection in November. Gov. Walker has no major initiates scheduled between now and then and redistricting will benefit the GOP. So, even if the GOP were to lose control now the odds would be with them to gain it back in Nov.

When elections don’t go a Liberal’s way, they do everything they can to change the results. Rules mean nothing. Only power.

You got it. Even if the Dems get control of the Senate, it will only be for 6 months. Then we have the November elections, where voter ID will be required.

And the redistricted districts drawn up by the Republicans.

I’m figuring just that will happen.

As with everything else, the ratTurds & unions & the supposedly non-partisan WI Government Accountability Board (yah right) have these recall elections stretched out for 2 weeks, to enable the RATs & unions to cheat early & cheat often. The WI polls are open for TWO weeks, from last Monday May 25 to Tuesday, June 5. Technically June 5 is the real election day, but the RATs & GAB board & turd Dane County judges are doing everything they possibly can to steal the recall elections. I believe that Gov Walker will still win by 6-8 percentage points (allowing for 2-3% illegal corrupt votes, but I am more concerned over the WI state senator recall elections. The RATs & unions are targeting the state senate elections, because they can bring in the teacher unions from neighboring counties to vote illegally in a different county or district. So we gotta pray & work & contribute to save all 4 of the state senate recall races. If only 1 state senate race flips to the D's, then the RAT bastard demoRATs will have a 1 vote majority in the WI state senate.

—”redistricting” everywhere is being challenged in court, with the usual result being the the Republidums usually don’t get to do to the Demotraitors as the Demotraitors always do to them——

I thought we already saw the outcome of the Senate “recalls” a few months back. What’s this story about?

I stopped paying attention, but if I recall correctly, they had to wait one year in office before they could recall a seat. The first wave of recalls were for the incumbants who were already in office. This wave is for people who won in 2010?

The best way to stop a recall is to turn out in mass to vote during the general elections. Recalls only work because the signature threshold is so low when the general turnout is low. If the general election turnout is high, then it is almost impossible to get enough signatures to force a recall.

are the sites i’ve been making direct contributions to for the wisconsin senate recalls.

no. i haven’t taken my eye off the wisconsin senate recalls. and yes the dems are hoping they can win these under the radar. we conservatives have to win those too. the above campaign websites are those of the candidates that seem to be in the most trouble. being out here in ca, though, i can’t be 100% sure (do your own vetting).

How about simply teaching people what a wrecking ball to liberty democracy is? This recall action is just a move toward democracy and never-ending elections. That conservatives often want recalls is proof positive that our government school system is an indoctrination system.

Democracies are disasters. We are a republic and let’s keep us that way.

Wisconsin is a POS Maxist sh*thole just like my state of California. Walker will lose as will the Republicans up for the Senate.

America is Entitlement Nation now with a majority receiving some type of government assistance. 0bama has sucessfully conditioned Americans to this new way of life and they want their government hand outs. Scott Walker is a threat to that and will be defeated handily. For a while the Marxist citizens will keep their freebees, but in the end will lose them anyway when the state goes bankrupt. Same will thing will happen to the whole country in 0bama’s second (or third) term.

So you think Walker's going to lose, even though five (two of which are Democrat) polling organizations put him in an unassailable lead...
