    Wow. So democracy just costs too damn much money, right Walker? I guess you should make yourself governor for life and pass the title down by heredity - that would save the people a ton of money on elections. And if you got rid of the legislature and ruled as a dictator, well heck, imagine the cost savings?

    He almost sounds like a King bitching about how commoners are going to cost his realm too much money.

    you just cant hgelp yourself...can you.

    Now you are showing us how you cant reason on your own nor can you comprehend things on your own.

    You are the perfect audience for the liberal commentators and writers who make a living off of the naive.

    I applaud you.

    It is unfortunate it came to this but all of this is a reaction to his policies. If he had not been so bad a politician there would be no call to oust him.

    Well yeah. It falls into the Grover Norquist meme about drowning a constitutionally mandated and democratically elected government.


    It's not about "saving" money. It's about killing our system.

    1) We arent a Democracy.

    2) Elections are expensive. Especially ones that are unnecessary.

    3) Your political games are costing the tax payers money because you are upset that Governor Walker is keeping his promises and cutting spending. You're simply ensuring that more cuts will have to come to the budget to pay for this unnecessary recall.

    4) You're going to look really stupid when Governor Walker wins reelection.

    As usual, the thread title from this OP is a lie. Big fucking surprise.

    Paying for votes is quite expensive. This isn't democracy.

    I don't care who you are or the circumstances, if you are facing a recall you suck as a politician.
