    Some might consider that act of joining/establishing unions a human right.

    Article 23.

    (1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.
    (2) Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work.
    (3) Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.
    (4) Everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests.

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
    I guess you would have to be human to notice the problem.

    Are Republican's starting a pattern of 1/2 term governors?

    He'll be the GOPs VP candidate in 2012. Conservatives would love that, because he's a hero to many of them.

    Perhaps that is part of the problem and needs to change. If elected officials knew it was likely they would recalled in mid-term for going against the wishes of those they represent, maybe the power would return to the people instead of to the highest bidder.

    In any petition, you are going to get smartasses who write-in Mickey Mouse or Adolph Hitler. In fact, those who oppose petitions do a lot of that, in order to attempt to invalidate the petitions. However, while 540,000 signatures are needed, the recall volunteers are going to end up collecting almost a million, far more than enough to invalidate claims that the petition drive itself is fraudulent. Once the invalid signatures are removed, via the challenge process, there will still be far more than enough. This recall is going to happen, and there will be no doubt in anyone's mind that enough valid signatures were submitted.

    This way the kochroaches can take action against their employees who signed the petition, heck while you are at it maybe the votes for all offices should be made public. That way no one can hide what they have done in the voting booth or otherwise.

    Newt and Walker ---- that would be terrific.
