We've split the atom, put humans on the moon, sent spaceships to Mars, created the internet and cell phones, but Republicans still tell us there's no way we can have effective gun control, or more economic equality, or a public health-care option, or tuition-free college, or sustainable energy, or a livable minimum wage, or publicly financed elections and an end to legalized bribery.

All we need is the political will and Americans would find ways to achieve all these things, but the GOP is in the business of crushing that will and turning us against each other.

I support Mike McCabe for governor because he’s leading a revolution of the 99 percent against a political system that disempowers most of us while granting nearly unlimited political power to corporate tycoons like George Soros and the Koch brothers.

Mike understands that the old left/right divide no longer applies and that common people have more in common with each other than with those who can afford armies of lobbyists and massive campaign donations.

Instead of revisiting the divisiveness Act 10 caused between public and private sector workers, Mike would promote equal rights for all workers.

Instead of cutting our investments in our future by giving more tax breaks and subsidies to corporations and the rich, Mike would eliminate wasteful programs such as WEDC and make sure our tax investments benefit all Wisconsinites. And he’d legalize and tax the sale of cannabis and use the revenues to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.

Please join Mike’s revolution.
