The Wisconsin Republican Senate has taken the next logical step in imposing a police state. They have ordered the arrest of Democratic members of the body. Exactly how far are Republicans willing to go is the question.
Since Illinois officials will not recognize such an order will Wisconsin Republicans hire bounty hunters to kidnap Democrats and carry them against their will across the border? If a Democratic Senator is found in the state will he be handcuffed and transported to the capital? Will the sergeant-at-arms chain Democrats to their desks to prevent their leaving? Will they be imprisoned?
The official use of force against legislators is beyond disturbing. It is an assault against the very concept of a free state.
Gov. Walker seems to be channeling Oliver Cromwell.
