    To counter the liberal spending and refute the liberal lies.

    Walker beat Barrett by 1,316,989 votes to 1,145,190 votes -- 53% to 46% (with 1% going to an independent candidate).

    Here's another way of saying that: Walker spent $23 for each vote he received, while Barrett spent only $3.47 per vote.


    Now to hear garbage spewed about how this election is a bellweather for November's elections. lol
    Bingo! And because of Citizens United, much loved by conservatives, we have no idea where most of Walker's big money came from.

    As to paying a price, of course, that is part of the game is it not? The suicide bombers have told us loud and clear that a very small number of people willing to pay that price can do a great deal of damage despite their obvious technological and formal training shortcomings compared to the dominant culture they target. 911 is but one example. I believe the people of New York City do not need to be reminded of that sad reality.



    A bit of advice, if I were you I wouldn't even be post on this subject.

    This is the World Wide Web.

    LOL, yep, results don't matter and people never vote their own pocketbooks? Walker results speak for themselves and he was rewarded for those results.

    You all can talk about how much this spending makes a difference but how much does the DNC spend on getting out their message ( Im still not voting for them)

    You can get the message out but it's still up to the people whether they like the message and it changes their mind.

    It's not as If they are going around saying "here is $1000 vote for me"

    Data and source for your statement, please. Thanks in advance.

    Keep spinning those election results and remain in denial. Walker won in a landslide, more than his original number and after having millions spent and a lot of civil unrest to get another election. Well, Wisconsin had that election and lost. Not a word about the millions spent to get the recall so all you can do is claim that Walker bought the election regardless of the exit poll results.
