I read a while back that the mayor of Superior endorsed Tommy Thompson for the Wisconsin Senate, calling him a consensus builder, etc.
Here we have a candidate who on Oct. 4, 2011, signed King Grover Norquist’s taxpayer protection pledge, which translates to “No Tax Increases for the Rich” pledge Go to Americans for Tax Reform pledge and see which of your Republican legislators has embraced the collar and surrendered free will.
Grover’s pledge supersedes their oath of office and Grover puts his Tea Party cohorts on any Republican with a moderate or independent thought. I’ve got to hand it to those legislators; there’s hardly a one whose philosophies vary so much as an iota from their radical, corporate loving viewpoint.
Then we have Tommy, beloved by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the group that has subsumed the former Republican party and controls Scott Walker. Tommy won an award as a good servant of ALEC and if you want to read how Wisconsin was hijacked by ALEC, go to alecexposed.org. Republicans, if you really like conspiracies, you should go to alecexposed.org and see how your party no longer exists.
Walker’s masters trained him well. ALEC needed him to complete his assigned tasks and made sure he was re-elected. Everything the Democrats warned about this lackey of ALEC will come true. And, if Tommy Thompson were elected, well, he may have once had free will, but no more. I was thinking of a group whose focus compared with that of ALEC’s. The closest I could come up with is the Mafia. Both do their business under the radar. Republican candidate equals lemming. Support a candidate who hasn’t surrendered his free will. Vote Democrat.
