Republicans Continue Their War Against The People Of Wisconsin

Republican Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker

As if the people of Wisconsin haven’t been punished enough by Governor Scott Walker and the Republican controlled legislature, the GOP has unveiled a plan to keep voters from acquiring the required voter identification cards and a plan that would confuse and deter voters from going to the polls.

When Republicans passed the clearly un-American Voter ID law, they disenfranchised senior citizens, minorities, and the poor as they planned to do all along in an attempt to kill the Democratic voting base. But voter identification laws are no longer good enough for the Wisconsin GOP. Governor Scott ‘Der Fuhrer’ Walker and the Wisconsin Reichstag (legislature) have decided to prevent voters from getting IDs in Democratic districts by closing as many as 16 DMV offices, all while expanding the hours of DMV offices in Republican districts. This move makes it significantly more difficult to get the required ID, therefore keeping the people who need them most, from voting.

DMVs are also being instructed to rig the game as one mother and her son discovered. Traveling from station to station in one DMV to get an ID for her son, the pair ran into many roadblocks thrown in their way. One clerk told the boy that his bank account didn’t show enough “activity” to get the ID, which creates a brand new question. Why and how are Republicans able to monitor the banking accounts of potential voters? Isn’t that illegal? Another clerk informed them that unless they specified that they came for a Voter ID, they would be charged $28 for it even though there is absolutely no difference between the Voter ID and the non-Voter ID. They leave the burden for making this distinction on the customer: no signs, no warnings, just a box on the form you have to hope you notice and check. But these sleazy tactics are not enough for the Republican fascists in Wisconsin.

See the video of the boy at the DMV here;

Also in the works is a redistricting plan that re-draws virtually every single district line in the state in an attempt to drum Democrats out of the legislature. This plan, if implemented, would turn Wisconsin into the Texas of the north. If you haven’t been paying attention to Texas politics, Democrats are all but extinct in the political process in that state. Republicans in Wisconsin are aiming to force Democrats out of Wisconsin politics through redistricting and voter disenfranchisement. Representative Andy Jorgensen’s district, for example, has been split into four pieces, which moves him into a district represented by a Republican. And even if the voters wanted to vote for Jorgensen, they would have a difficult time acquiring Voter IDs because the DMV in his area is being closed by the state.

And finally, if voter disenfranchisement and unfair redistricting isn’t enough, Republicans are also flooding the recall elections with millions of dollars. The conservative group, Club For Growth, is pouring in millions of dollars in an attempt to swing those elections in favor of the GOP. Wisconsin is merely a model of what a Koch controlled America would look like and the Wisconsin model is being repeated in other Republican controlled states. In the Republican/Koch grab for power, they are suppressing Democratic voters and basically fixing elections. If Democratic voters are unable to vote, they may never be fairly represented in the state of Wisconsin again. The only recourse the people may have is to literally drag Republicans out of power, and right now, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea. If people are kept from voting, what other option do they have? None that I think of.

    Only people on the absolute margins of society DON”T have some ID such as birth cert, etc. Those people are very, very unlikely to even vote. I’m more concerned about voter fraud, ie. felons, Mickey Mouse, voting twice. My nephew worked with the Obama campaign in 08 and bragged about registering great numbers of people, telling them who to vote for, filing in addresses from a list he had, etc.

    Street Walker is known for working out of a closet. Everything comes out in a suprise ready for the big date. He has a manifesto that David Koch helped him write. Walker never finished any school.
    When he releases his complete manifesto it will not involve children. His religion does not beleive in children. They are the adults slvve to torture to kkeep in line as their good book says,
    With know children we have no future. That is why they call them GOP. Good old pervs.

    They admit everything is about voter suppression. From Walker changing voting districts to putting hundreds of thousands in jail so they can not vote. That is something he started when he wrote truth in sentencing whith David Prosser is rubber stamp in the Clown court. They have done dozens of things to oppress voting. The things they have done to oppress some 5 million Wisconsinites is what is wrong. Even the Wisconsin attorney genral is not a legitamate one. The waukesha clerk that found the Prosser votes also had 22, 000 more votes than cast in her district in his election. He must also be removed. This clerk was prosser and walkers aid in 1997 when they were assemblymen. Governor Thompson appointed prosser to the supreme court for helping Tommy create his prison industry in the early ninetys. 71 jail projects went on. Also they privitized the prision industy. later to foun d not to be constitutional.

  • I think I was asked for the receipt of a paid bill at my present address for proof of residency. (Florida) Somewhere else–driver’s license? needed my birth certificate. I’ve had a driver’s license and been registered to vote in five states, and they all had different rules. This is one instance that might justify Federal jurisdiction. Florida passed an amendment against preferential redistricting last year, but guess what? Scott is holding up its passage! Surprise!

    The 2nd ammendment gives you the right to bear arms… not to use them to take anyone out… stop and think people befor you give these fools a tool to take that right from you…

    B.S.
    This is NOT voter suppression, this is anti-fraud. Are you kidding me? Should I be able to just walk in and get a free state identification card, under whatever name I would like? NO! I need to prove A) who I am, B) that I belong here. What kind of crap is this? Why did this woman have a video camera and WHY is she harassing employees that are merely doing their job?
    You can thank all of the scammers and faudulet people that walk amongst us all for the measures needed to insure people are legit.
    This really is a weak argument for “voter supression.” How many of these 300,000 are Dems and how many are Repubs? How many even WANT to vote?
    Please?! You can do better than this.

    There is NO WAY this can be true… IS THERE? HOW can they know whether there is “ENOUGH ACTIVITY” in his bank account?

    I can’t even respond without sending up red flags all over the Homeland Security spynet. These are fascists. Remember Auschwitz. Recognize that it will be you, VERY soon. How long will you stand quietly in line waiting your turn in the ovens?

    These sociopaths are the most dangerous nation-killers on the planet. If you don’t stop them at the ballot box, we WILL be shooting them in the streets. In self-defense. Don’t BE the target, make THEM the target. Friends, family, employees – take them the fuck OUT while it is still possible, before they roll out the Homeland Security Joint Task Force (every motherfucker in the US with a badge, from your local security guard to the Secret Service. Look it up.) Politely and legally if you can, but whatever it takes, eliminate their ability to affect our lives.
