Unlike others in today's government working against our interest, Rob serves we the people! Rob sincerely believes of a government of law and not of men, a republic and not a democracy.

Rob Taylor not only understands the constitution but will vote the original intent of the founders, he has elected experience at the local level and won't compromise his principles

Tell me, Mr. Zuelke: What was the original intent of the founding fathers regarding such 21st century realities as: interstate highways, nuclear weapons, terrorists, stem cell research, global warming, multinational corporations, the internet, immigration, tainted food products, air traffic congestion...?

In their wisdom, the Founding Fathers created the Constitution to be a living document--open to interpretation as times changed.

It is ridiculous for the followers of Beck, Palin, Hannity, et al to crow about upholding the Constitution as if we're still living in the 18th century. You typically contradict yourselves as you argue in favor of such things as government prohibition of abortion, but against government regulation of the money grabbing wealthiest among us. If one purpose of government is to promote the general welfare, than regulating corporations and Wall Street is at least as valid a government activity as is controlling what a woman does with her privacy or what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms.

printer-friendly Since the death of Paul Wellstone, no US Senator has as reliable a liberal voting record as Russ Feingold (D-WI). On health care, for instance, Feingold has advocated for single payer, and at least on one occasion honestly admitted that a public option would serve as a Trojan horse for government-run health care. The Poole Reports for the 110th and 109th sessions of Congress put Feingold firmly on the left wing of the chamber — although so far this year, Feingold has been one of the most centrist Democrats in the Senate.
What does that say about the prospects of cap-and-trade, one of the most cherished liberal policies on the Barack Obama agenda, when it’s too radical for Russ Feingold?
U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is returning to Washington after what he called a “lively” round of county listening sessions during his August recess. Although the most high-profile issue has become health care reform, the Senate is under pressure to act on a number of other issues, including financial regulation and energy policy.
On the latter issue, he said the nation must do something to combat climate change, but he isn’t yet ready to commit to energy legislation with a so-called cap and trade provision for carbon emissions.
“I’m not signing onto any bill that rips off Wisconsin,” Feingold declared, arguing the bill’s mandatory caps on greenhouse gas emissions could put the coal-dependent Badger State at an economic disadvantage compared to other regions and nations.
What changed his mind? Probably some good, old-fashioned “tea partying”:

Neither major party stands for the Constitution anymore that's why I'd vote for a true liberty candidate in Rob Taylor.

Rob is the only candidate who will return our Government to it's constitutional limits. The two party system has essentially become one in the same we need priciples and ethics over party politics

No, "it's" not really simple Dee Lay, but you may be. The nation watched thousands of jobs disappear during the Bush presidency. At the same time, Wall Street's playing with money that didn't exist became our greatest industry, producing absolutely nothing but a bigger concentration of wealth at the very top. The middle class is dying in this country, but Republicans continue to be focused on millionaires and billionaires. Furthermore, they, along with many Democrats, sell their souls and our future for the sake of money channeled to them through corporate lobbyists and campaign contributions.

The Obama administration has made mistakes, but they are focused on trying to get our economy going again and people back to work. The Republicans do nothing but obstruct. If you want a job, but also pray that there will be help for you if one isn't available, vote Democratic. At least there will then be some hope for the future.

DeeLay: Comment 29 seems to be in response to my earlier post, but I'm confused, since it doesn't seem to refute (or support) anything I said.

I guess that some folks cannot play connect the dots between the bill of rights and the Patriot Act. The one true patriot in this election is Russ Feingold.

Let us be sure of one thing. Government does not create jobs, entrepreneurs willing to put their money at risk to produce goods or services and create a profit do. If the government takes all the profit in the form of taxes and unfair regulations such as environmental hoaxes why take the risk? All government can do is move money around and take it from wage earners. Is "fairness" all being equal and poor? If Obama/Reid/Pelosi/Feingold promise you healthcare they can not afford what are they really giving you? A big fat "0" and a whole lot of regulations. We want jobs and freedom from higher and higher taxes. If you can not create your own wealth you need corporations that do and smaller government to get out of the way. Vote against the socialists and for the TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS. YES, for RON
JOHNSON! YES, for SCOTT WALKER!

Feingold is an ultra Liberal who puts the Democratic Party ahead of the people of Wisconsin.
