When national news blog Politico came to Milwaukee to cover Pres. Obama’s visit, they incorrectly identified the Wisconsin flag as the “flag for the local union, Wisconsin 1848.” Many people got a chuckle at the embarrassing mistake, but we think it really represents something larger.
After all, Wisconsin is nothing if it’s not a union of people who believe in workers’ rights, quality education, and open and transparent government. And it’s out-of-state interests on the right — who similarly don't understand our state — who bought and paid for Scott Walker and are directing his extreme agenda every step of the way.
So let’s say it loud and say it proud! Join as a charter member of “Wisconsin Local 1848” today. We’ll share up-to-the-minute information on statewide issues that affect us all.
It may not be make sense to everyone else who wants to be involved in our politics from outside of Wisconsin, but members of “Local 1848” know it’s the Wisconsin Way.
