Why don't you move to a dictatorship where people are too frightened to say what they really think? I cherish people's right to state their opinion, protest, put signs up, etc.--even if they don't agree with me.

Yesterday, I saw a couple of elderly tea party people--barely able to stand--holding signs at an intersection here in Albuquerque. I couldn't disagree more with these people, but God bless 'em for being politically engaged.

The people who frustrate me, are the adults who have no idea what is going on in this country. People who don't take the slightest trouble to read a paper or watch the news. Without an informed and engaged electorate, we won't have a democracy.
Sounds like somebody is mad that they look like a clown for having their car covered with political stickers.

Looks like Illinois is turning it's back on liberals as well. Even they know where to look for answers...

It looks like most of the normal people left... the rest are just here to post sad one-liners. Anyone with any sense realized how bitter & partisan they are, why waste your breath on someone that ignores facts?

I don't concede any 'points' made by right-wingers here, they intentionally use bad information, lie & misdirect in the hope of confusing someone to support them. I don't need to waste my time with that & I'm guessing other normal people came to the same conclusion.

Getting back to the topic at hand, most areas of Wisconsin in the Jefferson and Waukesha County areas are fine. It's easy enough to tune out the fringe elements of both sides of the political spectrum. Life is more enjoyable when you don't look for things to actively be offended about, or pick fights just for the sake of argument.

Zeitgeist Addendum - YouTube


All of u need to watch this with an open mind (if possible in WI) stop perpetuating class/political split...why not use all that negative energy to work together to progress rather than bicker about whos to liberal/conservative?? Why put labels?? We are all on this earth together whats wrong with new ideas and thinking outside the box??

I would suggest choosing another state besides. WISCONSIN. it's obvious that it is now a red state. Pick California or Oregon, not WI. I'm looking to move to another state because this one is not liberal enough insist on living in WI I suggest moving to Milwaukee or Dane county. They are the only places you'll be happy.

Thx
Good for you for looking for a progressive community. It's worth it to do the research.
