Fake Candidates?

The proposed idea of running fake candidates in primary elections has me disgusted, appalled and unhappy.  This is absolute evidence that the ruling class in this country is completely out of touch with their constituencies, and only concerned with personal agendas and dirty politics.

In a time when every vulnerable citizen of the State of Wisconsin is in extreme jeopardy, both political parties now want to engage in "playing dice with the universe". 

As America sinks lower, American politics have hit the sludge at the bottom of the barrel. 

The Democrats have, and need to keep, the moral high ground.  I am an independent voter, who happens to vote for democratic candidates because they are the best person for the job, 99% of the time.  When I see a political party support mean girl high school tactics to win elections, I don't see any reason to support them.

We need to get rid of the politicians who have brought the State of Wisconsin to its lowest point in history.  The Scott Walkers.  The Alberta Darlings.  Ad infinitum.

What we don't need is people who have avoided dirty politics so far to jump in and counteract this assault on democracy by engaging in equally unproductive politics.  Democratic candidates need to take the moral high ground on this issue and refuse to use the same repulsive tactics that are being used by the GOP.

Voters in Wisconsin have had enough of the Republican leadership.  Have we now come to a point we've had enough of the Democratic leadership, too? 

I say we use the same method to hire legislators in the next election, as we use for selecting people for jury duty.  You get a slip that tells you to report for four years of political service in Madison.  At least we'd have a government of the people, by the people and for the people.  And avoid all the NONSENSE that is currently happening in this state's political arena.
