When is it enough to finally say, "Governor Walker is just too crooked to hold the office as head of the State of Wisconsin"? The latest John Doe revelations about Walker's communications and intra-office dealings are just plain horrid. It is easy to see why the right-wingers and Walker fought so hard to silence the John Doe findings. And we still don't know all that was found. But what was found and revealed is so damning that it is impossible to vote for Scott Walker with a clear conscience.
Yes, I want to openly state my belief that Scott Walker does not deserve to be Governor of Wisconsin. That includes his ethics, morals, law-breaking associates, and many more things highlighted below.
Each of us gets in a rut. Some of us stay there for a lifetime. We rarely realize the rut we have nestled into. And most ruts are concocted because we feel comfortable in them. We get there, we know what to expect, we have come to agree with what we find or search for there, we believe truth exists there, etc.
It is not about whether Obama should have bombed Syria sooner, or used American troops to straighten things out in Iraq, or whatever. In a real sense, those are not the major issues that currently or in the past have meant most in U.S. international actions. We have been failing for generations.
It is truly amazing how our elected officials in Washington, DC, and the people we pay to advise them, have absolutely no idea who or what ISIS is in the Middle East. And the press is no more enlightened. While the sinister ignorance is not as blatant as George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and that gang, it is nevertheless extremely dangerous for the most powerful nation on earth to be so ill-informed about the world. And it is especially dangerous when the place we are focusing our money, troops, planes, ammunition, money, support, weaponry, etc. is the Middle East.
