If nothing else, one can always turn to the sanity of local government to help buffer things on the national level. After all, we're closer to government and representatives are a bit more vulnerable.
This is where I'm particularly at a loss. Obama is one thing. Here in Wisconsin, we're screwed. This state has lost all perspective on politics and government. At JSonline there's a poll asking people if you think we'll be better off in 4 years . . .
It's 60 to 40 percent NO!!! WTF?!?!
Now, the day isn't over. That could well change. But there's close to 9000 votes on it already. Are you kidding me? What is wrong with people?
The Dems now control everything in this state, and are we going to pay for it.
Taxes. Raised. A lot. All levels, across the board.
School choice. Say good bye.
Government healthcare. Say hello.
Rail initiatives. Say hello.
Paired with national democrats, businesses will be regulated and taxed.
Jobs? Say good bye.
Unemployment. Up. A lot.
The only good news is that Wisconsin democrats will over reach. I'm sure they're slobbering with power right now. They won't know how to contain themselves and will take this state right in to the toilet. I would hope the backlash would be huge.
Congratulations Wisconsin. Hope you're happy.
