Far from echoing the “days of rage” in Egypt, the Democrat-controlled astroturf public-sector union thug-fest in Madison, Wisconsin is a national disgrace. Unlike the Egyptian protesters, who are pro-democracy, the whiners in Wisconsin are anti-democracy, pretending that November never happened. Sorry, folks, but elections have consequences.
The people of Wisconsin elected a Republican Governor, who campaigned on reigning in the public-sector unions. They also elected Republican majorities in the state legislature. Thus, a bill that reigns in the public-sector unions comes up for a vote. This is how a representative democracy works.
