Ron Johnson Postpones Tea Party Sessions

Our vetting session was written about in the latest Milwaukee Journal newspaper.  Here is the link to the story:

Ron Johnson postpones tea party sessions

I think it is important to comment on several issues.  We are quoted in the story as being “constitutional purists”.  That means we want the government to follow the Constitution.  The Founding Fathers witnessed government tyranny firsthand, and devised a way to prevent it from happening again.  One of the reasons our country is in the shape it is in, is because our elected officials do not know or follow the Constitution.

Many people complain about massive federal government spending and debt.  What they fail to realize is that most of these agencies with these huge budgets are unconstitutional.  They are better handled at the state or local level!

We are also quoted in the story stating we want more detail on issues.  That comment was in part because we had a lot more questions to ask, understanding the Johnson campaign has only a limited amount of time.  However, specific answers are important.  All too often we hear politicians speak in generalities so they are not “pinned down” on any particular issue.

We understand that no one knows everything, and there is no perfect candidate.  However, it is important for our elected officials to understand the Constitution.  How can they keep their oath of office, if they don’t know what they are swearing to uphold?

Finally, it is important for true constitutional conservatives to find the best candidate in accordance with our principles.  We are not “in the bag” for anyone.  Ron Johnson is a nice guy, and we appreciate his participation in our forum.  However, we cannot “pull the punches” just because Ron has the Republican Party Endorsement.

Rock River Patriots Meeting Friday March 26th

On Friday March 26th, we will be having a meeting in Jefferson at Kendall Packaging at 6pm.  Kendall Packaging is located at 707 N. Parkway Street in Jefferson.  We will discuss upcoming events and issues of importance.

We will also be having a Candidate Forum with Evan Wynn.  Evan Wynn is running against Kim Hixon for the 43rd State Assembly  District, part of which encompasses the city of Whitewater.

We are also planning for the big TEA Party in Madison on April 15th.  We want to arrange bus transportation back and forth to the TEA Party, but need at least 50 people to commit to making the trip .  The cost will be $10.00 provided we have enough people.  I would like to hear back by this Friday’s meeting so we can reserve a bus or buses.
