  1. they cheap period. even when they win their still mad. we can have petitions and change everything they've done. Synder is a good guy but the rest is full of it. I take that back synder let this happen. the promises they made of fixing the roads and our insurance never was looked at. in other states you'll pay 2-300 per year for no fault. we have to put more then that down. SHAME. I am leaving this crazy hateful state.

  2. SHAME on the democrats for letting the gop get away with this. We are sick of you republicans thats why you will never grab Michigan again. all of you republican senetors will loose all of your seats. its just like trump running up a big big debt and telling everyone it's not his problem, he'll be out of office. I've never seen anyone be as dirty as the gop. because you can't run anything the right way you cheat. goto russia they hit ppl when they loose.

  3. If the Democrats were pulling this on a incoming Republican Gov.they would be demanding that the Justice Dept/US Marshalls to roll into Wsconsin like it was D Day. There admitting openly that there changing the law for partisan reasons is violating the 14th Amend. which forbids that the law to either privilege or punish an individual/group in turn. Walker and his repellant herd are desperate to make sure that there can be no investigation or action against them once there out of office and they've done it before. During the financial crisis Walker seized the reigns of towns/cities from its elected officials and appointed managers who had no accountability for what they were doing and it was Marshal Law in all but name only. It's long overdue to hold Republcans in Wisconsin accountable for its criminal activity and if not this pattern is not punished the US as a Democracy will be a memory as its replace by political,fiefdoms with the likes of Walker for sale to the highest bidder.

  4. The Republicans figured out that laws do not change they just pile on and they do not correct for shifts in ethics just like banks did with the mortgage bonds and tranches. We will have to change the rules and have civilian oversight boards for these kind of power grabs same with gerrymandering. These laws are not legal at least the ones about replacing elected officials with their own hires for certain lawsuits. So when progressives eventually put in New Deal advancements to try to move forward the Republicans will have no one to blame but themselves for this kind of scheme. It is a scheme and it is about winning right now when they are clearly losing. There will be no finishers after 2020 if this kind of thing carries on. Not for the GOP.

  5. GOP is being aged out so they win the only way they can continue to do so…by cheating. Corporate crooks and racists the lot of them.

  6. People don't hate the government. They hate Republicans, because Republicans cheat and lie !  Even when they LOSE .

  7. I don't understand why you guys even allow them to make laws after an election but before the newly elected come into power. U.S. "democracy" is such a joke. Yet they're supposed the be the beacon of democracy for the world? My butt.

  8. Multiple issues of voter fraud. Seems to straight out be a Republican thing. As in – and this makes me sick to type — "Anti American". Taking AWAY the right to VOTE, the right to Free Speech. ( if no one agrees with you fine, you have the right to be heard, people have the right to ignore or change a channel, the right to turn off. The Right to Choose ) and there's also a rather systematic set up to take away freedom.

    There is a difference between evidence given to beyond a shadow of a doubt before freedom is STOLEN away. Finding evidence, not calling witnesses that can prove innocence or guilt. Freedom is important. The desire of FACTUAL guilt is desired, not a showcase of who can lie better.

    Does seem to be the Republicans. They also have gotten more money for ads with their long term alliance with lobbyists.

    Additionally, the "Party of Law and Order, with their connections to lobbyists and the wealthy, an alliance that is ever more buried in lobbyist money. Cr imbed stories are popular, we are a crowded population, with rural areas traditionally hating crowded city populations – as if such living choices aren't made necessary by high costs and limited places outside of cities to make enough to survive.

    Law and Order tv series give an often hopeful point of view on the idea officers are paid for their diligence of honorable work, finding and catching likely perpetrators of crimes, and then surrendering all evidence for kitties to find guilt.

    Quotas, for profit prisons, complete and utter lack of accountability are damaging not only confidence in guilty pleas (quotas, wins by controlled evidence, not a persuasive showing of what is there).

    Profit prisons are paid by prisoner, not even definitive perpetrators who are a danger to society whether by physical or monetary dangers.

    The wealthy get better justice than the poor – a commonsensical realization of money per prisoner, equaling quotas, money per "criminal" meaning caught or IDENTIFIED.

    I am somewhat biased, but it seems republicans are mired moneyed, whether by inheritance and by bribe.

    Democrats are likely from more dense populations where people either wish to live peaceably with each other, or some people are more predatory, taking life and money to change their status

    Republicans seem to take more bribes and can thence either provide a service or pass or repay a bribe, to change status from common or poor to wealthy.

    Do you desire a government that fairly applies factual laws, and someday you WILL be vulnerable to it. Or just rely on money and greed weather than honor, altruism and generosity to make all better rather than just for you

    Do your games require losers for you to win? Republican.

    Do your games want all to win, but target those who need someone losers to win and thence remove them from play. Democrat.

    We want a working government that wants justice and allow our population to function.

    Killing others, either within our country or worldwide shouldn't be the goal.
    It Is for Republicans.

    Vote Democrat and hope for yours and your communities future

    Republicans do not hope for the future the dying of our climate is a"guarantee of end of days. They want as many losers as possible to make themselves winners by default.

    Every time they take rights they betray Democracy Their betrayals make them undesirable members of our national community.

    Don't give Republicans your every future by not stopping.

  9. Okay, two can play this game. I am in Wisconsin and I now support any and all measures to keep the republicans out of office forever. I am a strong voice for the 2nd. amendment among the Dems. But now, I side with the Dems on ALL issues.

  10. Remember when trump won the election and the republicans said "you guys lost, accept it and get over it" why don't they take their own advice along with the Confederates who don't remember they lost the war, yet they want to tell other they lost and to get over it. Republican hypocrisy and idiocy at its finest

  11. If the Republican Party dissolves, isn’t a single party system kind of just a no party system? Everyone is just their own individual with no bipartisan agenda? that sounds nice

  12. Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties.[14] Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party—to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society.[14] Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature and views political violence, war and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.[15][16][17][18] Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky (national economic self-sufficiency) through protectionist and interventionist economic policies

  13. If the GOP doesn’t respect the rule of law then screw it. Let’s say forget it and let these crooks swing like Mussolini.

  14. The republicans are almost done with trump. Trump is the republican's catalyst to making (or stopping) the changes as they see fit. They have used his ignorance and his mental instability as a smoke screen to further their agenda. Republicans are ready to let the world devour trump and his personal picks while protecting a few who will go forward to serve their party. The crazy trump has given them everything and more than they could have imagined in their game against democracy. The world awaits Muller and prays for trump's removal while the GOP has little or no concern, because the outcome will not effect any real change. We have been "trumped" and the crooked Republican Party will continue playing their game.
