Shorter Scott Walker: It's unfair we can't win power because we don't win the most votes, so the only fair solution is to have our votes count more than others.

Maybe he'll propose that Democratic votes count for 3/5 as much as Republican ones next...

What Scott Walker & Republicans are effectively saying: "Democracy for rural & suburban whites is fine, but we can't let those b̶l̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶L̶a̶t̶i̶n̶o̶ URBAN voters have an equal voice in the electoral process"
