Cold as it was the sun was shining and everyone was exceedingly happy. The mood was very optimistic as the recall election process rolls on towards its inevitable conclusion. People were reconnecting with others that they hadn't seen in awhile and the whole thing was quite a bit of a family reunion both inside and out of the Capitol. A wide diversity of [people from across the badger state had arrived once again at our house to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of The Wisconsin Idea.
Many people spoke to the masses delivering speeches in tune with this momentous occasion. All the more fitting as this coming Tuesday, Valentines Day will see massive crowds surrounding the capitol square on the one year anniversary of the Wisconsin Uprising.
The people are rising up and taking back they're government and state. The inevitable backlash of pro-democracy and pro-labor and pro-humanity against the attempted coup of the corporate elite and cronies will be the end of them. And it couldn't start and end in a better place than Wisconsin. And it cant come to soon, we need the recalls in Wisconsin as soon as possible. Then we can get down to business and clean this up and take the steps needed to make sure we don't see this repeated within our lifetimes.
And that was what today's gathering was about. A celebration of friends and ideals, creating a better tomorrow for ourselves and future generations of Wisconsinites. The speakers like Peter Barca who slammed Scott Walker on constitutional grounds, the crowd that chanted "Walker - Time to go!" and the crowd of vuvuzela blowers. The regular activists and organizers, the nurses, teachers and construction workers, farmers and factory workers. All together in the cold Wisconsin sunshine, sharing another perfect day in the badger state. Because what can be better than a gathering of the badger state faithful?
On Wisconsin! FORWARD!!!!
