State powers were not expanded. The state government of Wisconsin has no more power over its people than it did before Act 10 was passed. The people of Wisconsin lost zero constitutional rights against the powers of the state.

The reduction of power was experienced, appropriately, by the disgusting public sector unions who had, in collusion with Democrats and other politicians, for decades, abused their power to apply special statutory rights such as collective bargaining (now, thankfully eliminated) to extort ever-increasing unjustifiable benefits from the subgroup of the people of Wisconsin known as state income tax payers.


That is such a moderate opinion on collective bargaining.

Unless you are a communist. Then it would appear extreme.

I am not a communist and I think that your choice of words show your bias to a right-wing position not a moderate position. :oops:

To the rightwingers I am a job creator. Someone to be put on a pedastal and worshiped. :lol:

Your response above has really made me try to spend a minute in your shoes. I will honestly pray for you in church. I hope that you can find peace instead of so much hatred towards all these people that are getting so much more than they deserve.

I didn't say you were a communist. But a communist would find extreme my opinion on collective bargaining for public employees.

Glad to put you on a pedestal, if you like, HawkHead. But you should not expect to be worshipped. Even with your god complex.

Stay out of my shoes. And please don't pray for me. I prefer you pray for God's will to be done. I don't hate anyone and I love everyone.

Yeah. Thanks. Gives me plenty of time to work gratis for Governor Walker and the Koch brothers and, you know, just be a sort of rambling roving all-around union buster. It's great.

Ds believe in continual expansion of government at every level.


And that's plain false. The government is us, and to work together to solve problems effectively and economically is one of the higher functions of human nature. We (the people) believe we can cooperatively solve some of our problems better through deliberate, intentional effort than by ceding our power to the wealthy and trusting in their supposed generosity, or by invoking imaginary mechanisms like the "free market" to solve them by some natural magic.
