WI Senate Majority Leader Lets The Cat Out Of The Bag: Defunding Unions Meant To Hurt Obama's Reelection | Crooks and Liars

WI Senate Majority Leader Lets The Cat Out Of The Bag: Defunding Unions Meant To Hurt Obama's Reelection | Crooks and Liars

This is an excellent post from last week's Crooks and Liars blog. Go read it here.

It sounds like a weird political conspiracy. What if a political party wanted to win so bad in the Presidential election that they were willing to risk the health of the nation and plunge it to the edge of the abyss to show up the sitting President? Maybe it's not such a wacky idea. What can you do to destroy the areas of support that a Democratic candidate might depend on? Destroy the unions, take away funding from schools, don't allow college students to vote in the town they are going to school at, take away same-day voter registration, and block the President every chance one can. Make sure the governors that are with your political party have their marching orders to implement this plan on the state level.

I'd like to be positive, but I don't see any real winners in this. All the more reason to live one's life that makes the government's influence as irrelevant as possible. We need to create support systems and positive, hopeful living conditions that the state and Federal government can't tax and can't control.
