That statement could be said forsince begin of times mannn! Always to be, it seems for sure; wouldn't you agree? I believe policy reform is most relevant questions answered with this election here. And breakng the stranglehold that union Nazi's hold over these cowtowing states.

Thank GOD the reform ball's rolling. I'm a state worker myself and I could see the unsustainability and unfairness years ago, didn't much care either...but now since the country's broke because......I give a turkey and love the outcome in WI.

Unions are singularly responsible for the destruction of American excellence. They socialize and enshrine mediocrity, they are built upon compulsion and powerlust, they depend on force and despise individualism, achievement, progress, and innovation.

The voters of Wisconsin say enough! It is time to realize that in a free society, no one should ever be forced to join a union against their will. No one should be forced to pay dues to any union. It must always be voluntary. If it is voluntary, it is free, and it is good. If unions want to be relevant, let them engage in persuasion, not compulsion. The day of the closed shop is over and dead, and should never be allowed to return.

Unions used to be capable of doing good once upon a very long time ago. They've gone so far beyond simply protecting workers, and moved on to unfettered greed. I do not feel sorry for them.

Northbound is 100% right on. The Unions in Wisc. didn't care about higher property taxes, driving business out of state, or laying off teachers. They didn't care about anyone but themselves. Their hate filled attacks on people for voicing an opinion, their destructive protests and all the other crap they've pulled in the past 1 1/2 years should say enough about unions.

CONGRATULATIONS WISCONSIN!!!!!!!!!!!

You do know that union workers only represent a smaller percentage of the American work force population. The high union wages and legacy costs is one of the reasons why a lot of American jobs have gone over seas. This isn't the 50's 60's anymore when we had less global competition. We are not the only country with an advance work force anymore. High outrageous union costs along with over taxation and regulation is what drive businesses (and jobs) to shut down factories and move them where it's cheaper. Just look at Michigan (higher unemployment) and then look at Texas (lower unemployment) with a much healthier economy. Big difference.


Congrats Wisconsin! (from Indiana) I can at least sleep better tonight because people like myself from around the country were watching this wondering which way it will go. Tonight's vote is an important major contributing turning point for the November general election. We need our Scott Walkers out there. You're voice was heard

Logic doesn't apply with these people. They would oppose any fire escape improvements to the Triangle Shirt Factory on the grounds it was 'anti-business' to do so.

Lmao. Walker didn't ask for this recall election the democrats push for it. But Walker did seal the deal a 2nd time. So now the unions nation wide can deal with the problem now. PS they can thank the Wisconsin unions for there future wage, benefit cuts.

Here's a portrait of Gov. Scott Walker that should be displayed at every welcome center on the Interstates of Wisconsin:




On a side note, here's former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger calling a special session in Sacramento:
