We the People of Wisconsin demand all the votes be hand counted in a recount of the Wisconsin Supreme Court race between JoAnne Kloppenburg and David Prosser. We reject the Prosser campaign's intimidation attempts to forgo a re-count, because actions that reinforce democracy are never "costly and frivolous". The 7,316 vote margin between the candidates is less than one half of one percent of the total votes cast. It would have been abrogation of public trust if the GAB did not conduct an investigation into what happened in Waukesha County during this election.

Dear Friends,

We are in the midst of determining the future direction of our state.  We will either be the progressive land of La Follette, Gaylord Nelson, Bob Kastenmier, Dave Obey, and Midge Miller or the selfish state of Scott Walker and Paul Ryan. We will view government as an instrument in the battle to achieve social and economic justice, or live with Reagan's view that "government is the problem". Government will be our friend or it will drown in the Grover Norquist bathtub.

Recall Scott Walker on Election Day
