The first Presidential debate wrapped up last night with a decided victory going to Hillary Clinton. For many of us, despite the initial euphoria, unease crept in with the thought that Donald Trump may be down but not out. The prospect of him even POSSIBLY becoming President is terribly unsettling. It is our job to stop him.
In Wisconsin we have been to this rodeo. Small mindedness, greed, and corruption have become the hallmarks of a conservative dominated government that had once had a proud tradition of clean politics and social progress. We have seen tolerance, prosperity, and environmental protection stifled. We have witnessed, first hand, how out of state wealthy donors intrude into our local elections on all levels of government. With the wealthy donors has come the well-documented (Guardian Magazine) corruption of our governor, state legislators, and Supreme Court.
This sad state of affairs is playing itself daily. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are being funneled from out of state donors into our elections. Misleading television and radio ads play against our candidates every day.
