Letter to the Editor | Vote for Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, and Leah Vukmir on November 6 | By Gary Brussat

Oct. 16, 2018  – Washington Co., WI – In 2010, we voted Scott Walker in as Governor of Wisconsin. Then we watched as mobs of protesters backed by the Democratic Party vandalized the Capitol, screamed at our Representatives, and threatened our Republican lawmakers. Even 14 Democratic Senators got in on the act by leaving the state rather than do their job.
We quietly used our vote to keep our duly elected Governor. Then we watched as our tax burden was reduced, unemployment dropped to record low levels, and the FoxConn project was won ensuring many jobs in Wisconsin well into the future.
In short, life in Wisconsin has never been better.
Fast forward to 2018. Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Democrats, including Tammy Baldwin, immediately decided to vote against him without even interviewing him. Democratic committee members called him “evil” and questioned him as one would question a criminal. Then they tried to ruin his reputation by making obvious false accusations against him with no evidence.  Republican members of the committee were screamed at and constantly intimidated by protesters. The meetings were interrupted on a regular basis by screaming protesters. These disruptions were encouraged by the Democrats.
Let’s not reward these tactics the Democrats continue to display. This is not Democracy in action, as Democrats like to say. This is chaos.
Let’s vote for Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, and Leah Vukmir on November 6.

  • The above rules are not intended to stop criticism or dissenters, but rather to stop those who are incapable of participating in a civilized manner.


*Trolling: troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion,[3] often for the troll’s amusement.
