We took back the Wisconsin Senate. That means that the far right wing of the Republican Party can no longer at-their-will ram through the legislation that is detrimental to the progressive (and Progressive with a capital P) will of Wisconsin. Good for us! We should celebrate this victory. As Marcia has been tryng to teach us, we should assert our values, rather than make excuses for why our opposition has won a few in the past couple of years. We value a clean and healthy environment. We value quality, inexpensive education for all. We value the dignity of wage-earning working people. We value health care for all. We value secure and comfortable retirement for all. Etc., etc., you can add to the list and it is a long list. And yes, we value business entrepreneurship and a vigorous free market -- FOR ALL.
Thank you, Marcia, Nate, and all the rest of you who fight the good fight.
John Scepanski, DeForest Area Progressives
