    We can get it back.

    It will be hard and long work. We'll never get back to where we were, but maybe we can get to somewhere better.

    •  Yes, it will take 10 to 20 years (5+ / 0-)

      to take back some of the damage to state laws and life in the state.  Those of us "on in years" don't have that time.

      Of course, a lot of us will just have to take our pensions -- including our state pensions -- out of state with us.

      I truly believe this: I am a better person for these struggles. I live among a diversity of rich communities,  not just in my little suburban and occupational enclave. I know crazy things about my city and my state. I have met the most wonderful people you could ever hope to sing with and hold signs with and chant with and walk with.

      This is what people don't understand who haven't lived it: there are forces of darkness all around, but the lights shine even brighter.

      So is our resistance movement.

      there was only partly there. Other people were  busy figuring out how to do illegal campaigning possibly, they were also busy skimming off money from donations to Veteran's, in general taking advantage of the idea that "that doesn't happen here", "Wisconsin has such clean government".
      It is not just Walker, it is the 2 Republican Supreme Court judges that seem to be arrogantly corrupt and we have had glimpses of this all throughout.

      I think we are better off knowing the truth.
