UPDATE: April 14th Rally & April 15th Madison Tea Party against Voter Fraud Protection Act, Global Warming Bill & Taxes
UPDATE: This Just In from Kevin Fisher's blog, "Citizens for Responsible Government to Join with Other Concerned Citizens to Rally Against Vote Fraud" at NOON TODAY, April 14th at Milwaukee City Hall Rotunda. Contact CRG at 414-573-8709 for more information.
This Thursday, April 15th, conservatives from all over Wisconsin will gather at the State Capitol for a really BIG Tea Party to protest some last minute ram-it-through liberal legislation and high taxes. This is the 1st anniversary of last year's Tea Party Tax Day rallies at the State Capitol and around Wisconsin. Bus service is available if you wanted to leave the driving and parking to someone else. Go to Fight Back Wisconsin for details.
The 2 bills that come immediately to my mind are SB 640 / AB 895, the Voter Protection Act (scroll almost to bottom of post), a.k.a. Voter FRAUD Protection Act, and the SB 450 / AB 649, Wisconsin Clean Energy Jobs Bill, a.k.a. Wisconsin GLOBAL WARMING Bill. Both are terrible bills for Wisconsinites. On second thought, maybe we should call the gathering, The Madison Teed Off Party?
If passed, the Voter Protection Act will make voter registration automatic, grant permanent absentee status, and enable satellite voting stations for early voting. These measures will make voter fraud even easier to commit. The Green Jobs/Global Warming Bill will increase the cost of energy in Wisconsin. We cannot afford either bill.
This kind of legislation makes you wish you could just send the Wisconsin State Legislature home early, doesn't it? Most of us would be willing to pay them for the year if they just promised to stay home instead of jamming these horrible bills down our throats.
Call your state legislators a.s.a.p. about the Voter Protection Act. I doubt my State Senator Jim Sullivan will listen to our pleas to vote no on SB 640, but at least your calls become part of the public record. Senator Jim Sullivan (866) 817-6061, Senator John Lehman (608) 266-1832 Or (866) 615-7510. Like Sullivan, he is facing a tough reelection.
Come to Madison if you can!
