We thought you might be interested in this important email from former representative David Obey.

Dear John,

What's happening in Madison is unlike anything I've seen in my career in politics.

Scott Walker and his allies embrace the cruel, selfish philosophy of Ayn Rand, which is devoid of any social responsibility.

At a time when we need our leaders to work together to solve our serious problems, Walker and his allies have pushed an extreme agenda that slashes millions from education, makes it harder for seniors, students, and minorities to vote, and strips away collective bargaining rights from thousands of workers—all while handing massive tax breaks to corporate special interests.

It's critical that we support the recall of Gov. Walker in November 2012. That's why I created a petition to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, which says:

"By joining with people from across the political spectrum and signing this petition today, you can show your early support for this historic undertaking and send a message to Gov. Scott Walker that we won't stand idly by and tolerate his attack on Wisconsin values anymore."

Will you sign the petition? Click here to add your name, and then pass it along to your friends:
