Scott Walker Recall Leaders Prep Final Push In Effort To Regain Momentum

Walker, who has raised $25 million, has been blanketing Wisconsin with broadcast advertising touting his handling of the economy.

A moving wall of money threatens democracy by the people. Corporatism is being birthed even as we speak. The fruit of Citizen’s United is a nation where corporations struggle for influence against each other while the public is simply a mass of pawns manipulated by the massive power of an owned media.

Look at the numbers. They are more eloquent than anything I can say – 25 to 1.
