OK, first, if you can't make your argument without stupid name calling you don't have one worth making and any good points you have are nullified. I'm talking to a couple of people here on both sides of the issue. Grow up and show a little respect.
On with my point...
There were 100,000 protesters total and you're still only able to point out small groups of bad examples. Yes, there were bad doctors. The damage to the capital was routinely overstated and the total cost wound up being much lower than initial claims. They claimed it was going to cost $7.5 million to clean up the damage. The total cost for everything wound up being lower than $200,000, most of which was for reseeding the grass. The protesters used painters tape to hang signs, as they had been told to do. They had cleanup crews that cleaned portions of the building on a daily basis. They had signs asking people to be careful of areas that could be damaged, etc.
Now lets remember that we had a governor that admitted they had considered sending thugs into the crowd to cause trouble (when he thought he was talking to a major donor). And lets remember that some of the damage to the marble was blood stains from an attack by a knife-wielding Department of Administration employee that attempted to stab a balloon and and wound up cutting themselves. And lets remember that there were protests from Tea Party members too. And other counter protesters in the building who were treated with respect. And yes, it is OUR capitol building. A building for the people, and for the people to voice THEIR grievances.
As far as some senators leaving the state. Wow, they must be the worst politicians ever right? There has never been an example of something like that happening before. It's not like a former president didn't jump out of a second story window when they were in the legislature to prevent a quorum. Yep, Abraham Lincoln was obviously the worst American ever...
You also might want to study the history of when the recall laws were added to the Wisconsin Constitution. It was so that politicians could be removed from office if they stopped following the will of the people they represent. For a refresher look at http://law.marquette.edu/facultyblog/20 ... of-recall/
The power under the [federal] Constitution will always be in the People. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own chusing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their Interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their Servants can, and undoubtedly will be, recalled.
