Nation's eyes on Wisconsin; Scott Walker stays in seclusion

Update: If you are in Wisconsin, go door-to-door with We Are Wisconsin. Everywhere else, you can make phone calls with either the Democratic Party of Wisconsin or DFA and the PCCC.

Wisconsin is ground zero as the great 2011 counter-offensive against corporate extremists culminates in recall elections against six Republican state senators.

Gov. Scott Walker still avoids public appearences on the campaign trail as any mention of Walker is effectively a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) call for betrayed working families.

"The other thing is I’ve got layoff notices ready. We put out the at-risk notices. ... And we’ll probably get 5 to 6,000 state workers will get at-risk notices for layoffs. We might ratchet that up a little bit, you know. ... We’d already kinda built plans up, but it was kind of the last hurrah before we dropped the bomb."
- Scheming and conniving, Scott Walker caught unawares on tape in February, bragging about his ambush against Wisconsin workers
No matter how much the Koch brothers and other anti-family outfits spend and lie, the recall election and protests of 2011 have made American history.

March 10, Wisconsin state capitol
As the rightwing American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) jammed its extremist agenda down the throats of states all over the nation, Wisconsin has led the way in fighting back.

The stakes could not be higher: Wisconsin workers and families against a cynical governor and his Amen corner in the legislature.

August 9, Tuesday; Wisconsin families say: We Are Wisconsin.
