At this meeting, we welcome Free Market Warrior Loren Spivak to give the first half of his presentation on free markets and economics. Loren will return again in July to complete this presentation.
Don’t forget to vote tomorrow! If you have not already done so, look at the candidates. The WI Supreme Court election is an important one. Do you want an activist judge or a judicial conservative? The WI constitutional amendment seeking to allow WI Supreme Court justices to elect their Chief Justice only makes sense and deserves a “yes” vote.
Many school board, town, and municipal races are on the ballot. It is your duty to learn about the candidates. Do they support Common Core, radical environmentalism, tax increases, or growing government? If they do, you should be voting for someone else.
We hope everyone had a great time with family and friends celebrating Christ’s crucifixion, burial, and resurrection this past weekend. Through this sacrifice, we can truly be free and have a hope that will never fade away.
The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting this Friday April 10th at 6pm in the Community Room at the Dwight Foster Library in Fort Atkinson. The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Avenue.
At this meeting, we will discuss current events and initiatives. We welcome Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Randy Koschnick to talk about the US Constitution.
This will be a very informative meeting. Hope to see you all there!
Contact your legislators in support the upcoming right to work bill as well as being repeal of the 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.
Right to work is all about personal freedom. An individual should not have to be forced into joining a union just because of their chosen career field is one dominated by unions. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, February 24th. Invited speakers will go first (likely taking up first 2-3 hours) then the public will have the opportunity to testify. RTW hearing, February 24th, 10:00 am in Room 411 South of the State Capitol (Senate’s Labor Committee).
Senate Bill 35 and Assembly Bill 49 – Repealing the 48 hour waiting period on handgun purchases only makes sense. A buyer has a background check completed as part of the purchasing process . The other thing to recognize is that the 48 hour waiting period does not apply to long guns. If a person is determined to do harm to someone else using a gun, it is very easy for them to obtain a long gun without the 48 hour waiting period. Finally, as we always need to mention, criminals do not obey the law anyway. These measures simply infringe on the law abiding citizens natural right of self-defense.
On Saturday, February 21st, Rep. Robin Vos spoke about Common Core at the Racine County GOP caucus. He said: “Common Core isn’t bad and it’s just a bunch of goals everybody would agree with.”
(also email Rep. Vos at Rep.Vos@legis.wisconsin.gov)
Governor Scott Walker – (608) 266-1212
(also email Governor Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org)
You can use a message similar to the following:
“I understand that, over the weekend, Rep. Robin Vos said that Common Core is ‘just a bunch of goals everyone would agree with’. Well, I DON’T AGREE WITH COMMON CORE. Its goals are to standardize education in America in a way that demoralizes teachers, removes local control of schools from parents and taxpayers, disrespects differences among students, and profits big education corporations. We can’t afford this. The cost to us in terms of dollar, our children’s future, and academic freedom is just too high. Why won’t Rep. Vos join Governor Walker and push for a COMPLETE REPEAL of Common Core?”

On behalf of the Rock River Patriots, I want to thank you for all you have done this past year. As we look ahead to the upcoming year, we see there is much to be done. It is an opportunity to truly change Wisconsin for the better. This is an opportunity to make a lasting impact and return our state to something great.
However, with all that needs to be done, it is easy to forget why Christmas is so important in the first place. We continually hear the cliche that “the true meaning of Christmas is about giving.” Yes, it is the season to be giving, but there is more to the story. The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of God’s gift to mankind. God sent his son, Jesus Christ to provide a means of salvation to a fallen people. Only by accepting God’s free gift of Jesus Christ, can we truly be free. I encourage you all to take the time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and thank God for his gift this Christmas season.
Finally, the deadline for submitting papers / signatures to be a candidate in the upcoming spring election is upon us. The 6th of January 2015 is the declaration deadline for school board and other municipal races. These are important races out of which future conservative leaders of the state can emerge. One of the most important local races is your school board. Not only does your local school district account for close to half of the property tax bill you see each year, but it also oversees what your kids will learn. Through control of the educational system, the Marxists, Socialists, and Globalists have indoctrinated many young minds. It is time we take it back!
There is a lot to do, and we look forward to an exciting 2015. Our next meeting will be Friday January 9th at 6:00pm in Fort Atkinson at the Dwight Foster Library
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
