You and I have had some harsh words in the past several days, and I am standing up now to ask that we call a truce. We are on the same side and we both want this to end the same way.

This has been an emotional battle and some of us REALLY have our hearts in this because it is literally our backyards. I am going to take some words from a reply that was lost in a deleted in a sub-thread that got heated the other day and repost.

This is a "Discussion Board". People "discuss" and sometimes you don't agree with them. Sometimes there are topics about which people are VERY passionate and it feels TERRIBLE when someone disagrees with our exact view of the issue and we are SO emotional about it that we can't even see the simple things about which we agree.

I will list the things that I think you and are in TOTAL agreement on in this mess:

1) We TOTALLY want Kloppenburg to win.
2) The Waukesha County Clerk is a corrupt asshole
3) This needs to be thoroughly investigated
4) A recount with FULL hand count MUST happen
5) Any and all corruption or fraud needs to be fully exposed and prosecuted if found

See... that's a lot, no? The things that we disagree about are ALL theorectical. We disagree about what did happen, what people's motives might have been and what will happen. All of these things will either be worked out or we'll flat out never know. I hope that we can all stop acting like the other doesn't care. I think you know that I care more than most can ever comprehend. Please stop acting like I am defending this county clerk, I am not and I will not. Ever. I hope people will stop with the strawmman arguments that I think we should not investigate, I've made my opinion very clear on that. And mostly, I would like people to stop implying that I am a "troll" because I don't agree with every specific theory to which they subscribe.

I, like most here on DU am very passionate about "my" issues. I will continue to shoot down wild and crazy theories made by people who don't understand the processes or people here in WI, specifically my community. Sometimes I will be wrong and I concede that I don't know EVERYTHING. I have learned some things AND admitted I was wrong when corrected.

So... truce?
