Hipparchia at Corrente:
What were your family’s summer vacation plans? Why not visit Wisconsin? It’s a lovely state, with lots to do, and you can help spread democracy while you’re there.
I have two problems with this idea.
The first is that I generally don’t think non-residents have any business intruding into the internal affairs of another state. We’re not talking about a civil rights issue like segregation or same-sex marriage. If you want to get involved in what happens in Wisconsin then MOVE there.
The second problem has to do with the “spreading democracy” meme. I’ve been following what’s been going on in Wisconsin. The Republicans won the last election and are trying to implement their ideas into law. That IS democracy.
You don’t have to like what the Cheesehead GOPers are doing, but they have the legal right to do it.
