THIS IS WHY WE DON’T SUPPORT THE PATRIOT ACT AND SPYING ON AMERICANS WITHOUT A WARRANT!

When you trade your freedom for security…you get neither.  The government’s primary job is to keep us free.  However, when you trade freedom for security, the government will always end up protecting itself.  President Trump is a threat to the machine.  Judge Napolitano explains…

Napolitano: We have spying everywhere, all the time

Speaker Vos Wants Toll Roads In Wisconsin…THEY ARE A BAD IDEA!!!

“Wisconsin has a major funding shortage for its road building and repair needs. The state’s assembly speaker says he prefers using toll roads if necessary.”
 
“That’s my preferred option,” Speaker Robin Vos (R-Burlington) told WTMJ’s “Wisconsin’s Afternoon News” Thursday.

Speaker Vos wants toll roads in Wisconsin….This article (link below) spells out some of the problems when Michigan looked at having toll roads for transportation funding.

Questions about the toll roads:

1. The proposed toll between the Stateline to Milwaukee on I-94 is a federal interstate. The federal government just spent millions to redo much of that stretch. Under current federal law, most or all of that aid would have to be paid back to the feds. How is this being paid for? Long term debt? Has this been factored into the toll solution?
2. Future federal aid will no longer be available for projects related to that stretch. Generally, only 10% is funded by the state. With tolls, the state is on the hook for 100%. Has this 10 fold increase in expense been factored into the toll solution?
3. Any revenue generated by the tolls used for other projects will eliminate any federal funding for those projects. Has this been factored into the toll solution?
4. Tolls will include new infrastructure costs that will be funded solely by the state. Has the increase in new infrastructure been factored into the toll solution?
This idea has been floating around in other states. They have come to the conclusion that the cons far outweigh the pros. One only needs to look at Texas Tollways 130, which was privately funded and constructed, as is being proposed in Wisconsin. They went bankrupt in March 2016, 10 years after being awarded the contract.
A crisis scenario is being presented for our state roads and that there is not enough revenue to support our roads. Then why is the legislature taking on new costs that will eliminate a revenue source? How is funding 10% considered a problem but 100% not? What will the toll solution do to our long term debt?

The Danger of Vouchers

The Dangers of vouchers…Trump’s voucher plan.

Below is a link to a 38 minute podcast on vouchers and their danger by KrisAnne Hall, lawyer and Constitutional advocate. There is a full all out push coming and it will be led by DeVos.  If successful it will accomplish putting parents under control of federal gov. This will increase money spent by the feds on education from $540,000,000 to $130 billion ($20B from the feds and $110B from the states) if the Trump plan is implemented.  This will be a mechanism of control of all parents/children under the poverty level if they sign on to new voucher programs. If they take the money, they will have to take the mandates of national curriculum and national methodology.

Rock River Patriots Meeting Friday November 11th

The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting on Friday November 11th 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 the good, the bad, and the ugly as it relates to the fall election on November 8th.

Don’t forget to vote on November 8th!  While we understand that there is no perfect candidate on this ballot, choose freedom over enslavement.  You may not be thrilled with the presidential candidates on either the Republican and Democrat sides of the aisle, but there is a big difference between the two.  Do you want a woman president who is rotten to the core, establishment, corrupt, bought and paid for, and a person with blood on her hands (Benghazi), who will probably be indicted given the recent revelations of the re-opened FBI investigation?  Or do you want a president who is sometimes crude and politically incorrect, but yet a successful businessman who employs many Americans, and who is an outsider of the system to shake things up?  We know what our choice is.  Choose wisely, your freedom depends on it!

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?

Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States?  The GOP’s chickens have come home to roost.

It is definitely an interesting time when we see that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States.  Many “so-called conservative” pundits are now continuing with the Never Trump mantra.

It’s important to examine how and why this has happened.  The two big government parties have no one to blame but themselves.

TEA Party conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists already know that the Progressives are really just big government loving socialists and communists. There is little explanation that needs to be said here about the Democratic Party. Most understand that the Democratic Party is run by radical leftists with an ideology that is anathema to our Constitutional Republic.  They really don’t figure into the Trump equation.

Many conservatives and libertarians in the Tea Party / Patriot movement got involved because they were angry with the status quo of the Republican Party. They worked hard to get Republicans elected who claimed conservative credentials. However, throughout the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration, the so-called conservatives behaved like there was nothing they could do and sold out again, and again. Many of us recognize this was nothing new.  It is been going on for a long time. Ronald Reagan was in favor of an assault weapons ban, but you won’t hear that from these conservative pundits who attempt to deify Ronald Reagan as “the standard” by which all other current legislators are measured.

Really what we see on a national level is a Republican and Democrat flavor of the big government anti-liberty party. This is a two sided party run by “Insiders” who know better than the “rabble”.

Hillary Clinton will carry on more of the same policies that the Nobel Peace Prize-winning President has started. The Middle East is in chaos because of the intervention by Obama and Bush.  More of our brave soldiers and diplomats will be hung out to die like the brave Americans in Benghazi Libya were while on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State. The name Clinton is synonymous with corruption, and I can imagine the government will only get worse with Hillary in the driver’s seat.  We will continue to have an invasion on our Southern border.

The rhetoric from Ted Cruz’ campaign seemed to suggest that he was a political outsider. However, he has worked in government virtually his entire life.  Cruz’ wife was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and has ties to one of the big Wall Street Banks. Many are rightfully suspicious of these connections.  Many bible-believing Christians are concerned about Cruz’ ties to Dominion Theologists.

It seems to me that we had the choice between two real political insiders. And then there’s Trump. Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump is a wildcard. Nobody can say for sure what he is going to do.  What Trump demonstrated in the Republican debates was that he was not afraid of speaking his mind.  There is no doubt we can do without the vulgarity.  However, his stance on illegal immigration is what gets him some of the biggest applause lines anywhere.  He is stating the obvious.  Things that need to be said and done.

The question is, given how many Americans feel betrayed by the political insiders, is it worth the risk to vote for Trump?  It is pretty clear Trump is not controlled by anyone.  That is what seems to be the appeal of him.  I contend that is why many conservatives have been voting for Trump, knowing he is not a conservative.  Trump is a pragmatist, but he is not controlled.  The general public is starting to wake up to the idea that the system is rigged.  Americans want America put first, not special interests.  Donald Trump is speaking to this, whether or not he believes it is another question.

If Trump finds his way to the White House, maybe his wildcard factor will open the eyes of Americans to the fact that we should not have an “all powerful imperial” President.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be a catalyst for reassertion of Sovereignty by the States.  Maybe the Trump wildcard factor will be an incentive for Congress to actually do their job and restrain all the unconstitutional activities / agencies of the federal government.  If that is the result of a potential Trump presidency, that may be a wildcard worth playing.

THE ROCK RIVER PATRIOTS AND THE IRS (continued…)

As we have noted before, the ROCK RIVER PATRIOTS have been targeted by the IRS in our pursuit of tax exempt status.  Having decided to withdraw our application after getting the run around, we are now faced with paying the taxes we owe.  It is no suprise how much of a run around we have gotten while trying to get this cleared up.  After having our application delayed by the IRS for over a year (close to a year and a half), we are now faced with all the interest and late fees which are almost as much as the taxes we were supposed to pay.  Coincidentally, we filed our 2011 and 2012 taxes to the IRS as a pending tax exempt entity while waiting to hear about our status.

Once again, this should be a wake-up call to everyone.  It’s time to repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the IRS.  Why don’t we have any Republicans talking about this?

Matt Kittle from the Wisconsin Reporter has an article with an update on our story, part of which is shared below with a link to the full story on their website.

Vicki McKenna spoke with Matt Kittle about this issue on her show on Tuesday 01/07/14: Vicki McKenna podcast Tuesday 01/07/14 Hour 3.

‘Out-of-control government’ still hitting conservatives

By M.D. Kittle| Wisconsin Reporter

MADISON, Wis. — If you think the Internal Revenue Service’s persecution of conservative organizations has faded into an “inappropriate” past, the folks from theRock River Patriots would like to set the record straight.

“We are being totally overrun by an out-of-control government,” said Marvin Munyon, a director of the southern Wisconsin tea party group.

The Rock River Patriots, like so many other limited-government organizations applying for tax-exempt status, was given the administrative runaround for more than a year before Munyon, exasperated and “threatened,” threw up his hands and dropped the group’s pursuit of 501(c)(4) status.

Not only has the revenue agency demanded the small, grassroots organization pay hundreds of dollars in taxes owed while the Rock River Patriots worked through the onerous tax-exempt application process, the IRS is charging nearly as much in late payment fees, penalties and interest.

Do We Have A 1st Amendment Anymore?

This bill was signed in secret by the President in March of 2012.  When we say we have all of the pieces in place for a “turn-key dictatorship”, this is further proof.  Have we become a third world nation where despots control what is seen and heard?

Let’s see who voted for this terrible piece of legislation: HR 347 Vote Tally

All of the WI Congressional Reps voted for this bill.  The U.S. Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent, so there is no record of how they voted on it.  However, all it would have took was for a Senator to object and ask for a roll call vote.

This is disgraceful!!!
