This is What Democracy Looks Like

Even though it took two elections to validate the will of the people.

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker survives bitterly fought recall election

Wisconsin's governor Scott Walker survived a bitterly fought recall election on Tuesday after Republican voters mobilised in huge numbers, propelling him to a victory that will boost Mitt Romney's run for the White House.
Television networks called it for the incumbent at 11pm local time after early returns from rural counties gave him an apparently unassailable lead even as voters were still queuing to cast ballots at polling stations in Milwaukee, a Democratic stronghold.
It was a devastating defeat for Democrats and union activists who had waged an 18-month campaign to oust Walker over his restrictions on collective bargaining and cutbacks of pension and health benefits of public sector workers.
The American people are hungry for reforms, the out of control spending on the federal and state levels are creating burdens all across society.
This recall election was about one thing and one thing only, who has control of the public purse strings, the duly elected officials chosen by voters or the thug union bosses and their democrat party,socialist enablers who's only concern is unfettered access to the public trough.
The answer seems pretty clear.
