Ask yourself the following questions:
How different would Wisconsin be would be if Scott Walker hadn’t defeated Tom Barrett the first time?
How different would Wisconsin be if Walker lost the recall?
How different would America would be if Hillary Clinton, who could do the job of president in her sleep, had beaten Donald Trump?
Apologies to Matt Rothschild, executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, for co-opting the questions. He asked them recently in a presentation to the American Association of University Women-Wisconsin.
Rothschild presentation was titled, “Why Voting is Important Especially When It Doesn’t Seem to Make a Difference.”.
He started with the questions (edited slightly above) and then added:
“But instead we got this clinical narcissist. But that’s not the worst thing about him. The worst thing about him is that he’s the closest thing we’ve ever had to a fascist in the White House. He traffics in racism and ultranationalism, which are the sperm and the egg of fascism, and he’s doing some in vitro fertilization right there in the Oval Office.”
Read the entire presentation (it is a bit long, so make sure you have a coffee handy). It is well worth your time.
