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.

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.
