Yep, our loving governor is back to his old tricks. He wants to once again, make it as difficult as possible for people to be able to vote. He wants to further shred the remaining constitutional dignity we have here in Wisconsin. Didn't he get the message the first time he tried that? And we know why he's doing it. His sidekick Alberta Darling made it perfectly clear that if we had just limited voting to certain groups of people, Mitt Romney would have won the presidential election. They aren't sugar coating it anymore. They're being very blunt about their intentions.
"States across the country that have same-day registration have real problems because the vast majority of their states have poll workers who are wonderful volunteers, who work 13 hour days and who in most cases are retirees."-Scott Walker
Well, hell, those old retired people just can't get themselves together enough to handle this task! And I would bet real money that some of those "retired people" voted for Walker. But what really gets me about this is that Walker didn't make his announcements in Wisconsin (surprise, surprise.) He did what he does best - went to another state (is he aware that he's only governor of Wisconsin?) and dictated his agenda from there. What kind of spineless weasel does that? Scott Walker, grow up and be an adult. Don't run away to other states to give us the bad news. Nothing makes a politician look more weak.
Let's be clear - the amount of voter disenfranchisement that would come from ending same-day registration is astronomical and that's precisely what the GOP wants. According to the Journal-Sentinel, 17% of voters in Milwaukee on November 6th, registered same day. Did you hear all those stories of mass confusion pertaining to same-day registration? Oh, because neither did I. Because that didn't happen.
By the way Gov, where are those 250,000 jobs? Our current unemployment rate is 7.3%. Maybe you should work on that first before working on shredding the very founding of our democracy.
