Wisconsin recalls should be an inspiration, not a discouragement

Yesterday, in the Wisconsin recall elections, only two Republican senators were recalled, with the other four surviving. So the GOP retains control of the state Senate.

It would be easy to feel discouraged by this. But we cannot afford to.

We should appreciate the victories in those two cases, and let them inspire us to spread the movement throughout the country, to other states where Republican governors and legislators are working to undermine workers' rights and the middle class.

To give up now would be to risk forfeiting the America we grew up in.

We cannot afford that at any cost.
