Here's the official list of things that are appropriate to compare to slavery:

Slavery.

If the thing you are about to compare to slavery does not appear on this list, think twice before making it known to the world that you are an insensitive clueless idiot who has never actually suffered a day in your life.

jso2897: The important thing to remember is that if slavery existed and was being debated today, "conservatives" would be defending it, as they always defend evil, exploitative "traditions".
And that's the truth.

The reason Walker's book doesn't mention his promise of 250,000 new jobs in Wisconsin is who in their right mind would write a book about their own spectacular failure to follow through on a promise. Jeez. Study it out people.

Nothing. It's a knee jerk reaction to lash out at somebody when you feel threatened or your insecurity level rises. It's a common trait of simple minded individuals.

Considering there are 26 R state houses and 30 R governors, and the 36th placed no time limit on ratification...  Well, it behooves Dems to get out and vote IN THEIR LOCAL ELECTIONS.

Personally I find Walker amusing. He embodies "small government" and has managed to drag an entire state more than 50 years into the past in socio-economic standards.

To be fair, Lincoln hired the Pinkertons for security during the war, who later committed some of the most vile and atrocious actions against the organization of labor.  So Walker is marginally-correct.
