NO! It is not the obama campaigns new slogan, it is the state motto of Wisconsin and I, for one, am not giving it up. If you look here, you will find that "Forward" has been Wisconsin's state motto since 1851. Before that, the state's motto was "CIVILITAS SUCCESSIT BARBARUM" or "Civilization has taken the place of barbarism". It is on the Wisconsin  flag, the coat of arms and the state seal. I do believe that gives us "dibs", or whatever other way you say it in your neck of the woods. It is ours and Mr. obama may not have it.

It is just as inappropriate for them to hijack our state motto as it was for the obama team to design their own presidential looking seal back in 2008. but at least there were differences between that and the real seal,. (The real seal. seems disinclined to represent Mr. obama-but that's probably just a coincidence, not an indication of the levels of competency that Mr. obama inspires.)

I understand Mr. obama's wish to claim all attention during an election year(despite his ineligibility to hold the office.) And I understand that Wisconsin has been attracting some attention of late, not only for reclaiming fiscal sanity, but doing so in a way that appears diametrically opposed to what the obama regime intends for this nation. When I look at it like that, it almost makes sense that they would try to steal our motto, in a petty and childish sort of way.

It is Wisconsin's leadership, not obamas lack of it that deserves the motto "Forward" and we are keeping it as well as reminding the nation that we are a REPUBLIC, not a democracy and that the rule of law has some meaning here. Mr. Walker and the conservative members of the state legislature are showing actual leadership, not just taking credit for the hard work of our troops who are risking their lives overseas, in order to enhance his campaign.

"For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you." ~ 2Cor 8:17
