Wisconsin voters fell for the lying ads funded by the Koch Brothers to keep Governor Walker in office! Wisconsin, this recall was about so much more than the actual recall and you fell for the lies. I have not seen the ads you were exposed to but I am confident that The Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity (a misnomer), and Karl Rove funded the false ads. Wisconsin voters, you voted against your own best interest if you voted to keep Scott Walker and that is your prerogative but I resent that you set the stage for other Radical-Right Wing Republican Governors, like Rick Scott in Florida, to pull off the same hoax on American citizens, (i.e. USE UNLIMITED FUNDS FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES FOR THE SINGLE PURPOSE OF CONVINCING UNEDUCATED VOTERS WITH MANIPULATIVE ADS TO FOOL YOU INTO VOTING AGAINST YOURSELVES.
By merely watching your local news station and not doing your homework about issues beyond your own community, you are essentially putting your head in the sand and I resent that this has a negative impact on my life. It is time voters did their homework and discovered what sinister, heavily-funded corporations and organizations are doing behind the scenes to see to it that our nation becomes a solid CORPORATOCRACY – which is not in anyone’s best interest – except the 1% (the wealthy)! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?
Frankly, I’d have “Big Government” rather than “Big Oil,” “Big Pharma,” “Big Banks” or “Big Insurance” running this country. The difference is Big Government is “Of the People, By the People and For the People, whereas the Oil Industry, the Pharmaceutical Industry, the Banking Industry, and the Insurance Industry are in existence for ONE THING – TO MAINTAIN ITSELF – BY TAKING FROM YOU TO MAINTAIN ITS PROFITS! Why is this manipulation by monied interests to gain control of our government and all of us such a hard notion to grasp?
