Continuing our trend to more lower taxes

Continuing our record low unemployment

Continuing to grow our economy

Continuing to drive down the cost of healthcare and insurance

And equally important! Continuing to keep Wisconsin moving forward!

What's the difference?

Between Republicans and Democrats, when it comes to taxes and affordable healthcare?

The difference has to do with their respective perception of taxes. Democrats, especially those who've bought into Bernie Sander's brand of European Socialism, consider taxes a necessary expense or the cost of living in a government regulated society. While republicans, view taxes as an investment in our future. It's why democrats will always migrate back to a host of tax supported social welfare programs, while republicans will invest our taxes in incentives, that attract job creators into Wisconsin. FOXCONN is a good example. Governor Walker and our republican legislature, structured an agreement that ties our investment in FOXCONN to their commitment to create long-term, high paying, meaningful employment for residents of Wisconsin. It's also why republicans will freeze tuition at the UW as an investment in graduates getting ready to take on the jobs created by the companies moving into the state.

This difference is precisely why I have such an anger toward Caleb Frostmen. He was, or could have been an investment Door County taxpayers made in not only leveraging the jobs created by FOXCONN, but a significant asset for Door County, focusing on leveraging our investment in our schools and NWTC. As it turned out, Frostmen turned out to be a democrat in republican' clothing. I have the same problem with Tony Evers. The Tony I know viewed FOXCONN as a great investment in high tech jobs for his students, and looked forward to the investment FOXCONN would be making in the UW system, until someone convinced him to run for Governor and then all bets were off. As you can see, he abruptly turned his back on Scott Walker and the students who placed their trust in him. 

  • This same difference in perception, carries over to our efforts to create cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance. The democrats are notorious for misinterpreting what republicans are trying to do. That's a nice way of saying they're lying through their teeth in their negative ads condemning Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir.
  • Obamacare, the largest tax increase in US history, was "One Big Academic Mistake for America (OBAMA) and democrats know it. I really don't want to do this, but for the sake of my country, I'm going to link you to a text book I wrote called, "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance." I've yet to have it published, but if you click here, you'll get excerpts from the book Paul Ryan and Ron Johnson hand carried back to Washington back in 2012. It's a "Republican-Risk Management" plan I titled "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance, because every decision is made by the head of the household. For the last six years, Tammy Baldwin and her left wing allies have blocked every effort republicans made to bring cost effective and affordable healthcare back to Wisconsin.

Note: While it's important to send the likes of Leah Vukmir and "once a Marine, always a Marine Mike Gallagher to Washington, it's equally important for voters to weed-out the candidate riding the blue wave, only to satisfy their egos or increase their pension at the end of their career.  

Do me a big favor! Check out Tammy Baldwin's record of attendance against her voting record. You'll find she's always there to vote on legislation that is basically insignificant in the morning and absent when it comes to making the hard call in the afternoon. For the life of me, I can't understand why democrats still back her. She's more than dropped the ball at the VA, she's dropped the ball representing good people voting on the left side of the isle. Don't take my word for it, check her voting record. And while you're at it, ask yourself why Christians are putting up with her position on partial birth abortions. From every angle and every perspective, I'm sure you'll conclude that Leah Vukmir, our 5' 3" pistol packing, Orthodox Christian, mother of an Army Ranger, a little bit of Judge Judy, Judge Jeanine Perro and Annie Oakley all rolled up into one, is our best bet to drain the swamps in Washington.

Relative to the Sheriff's race in Door County between Tammy Sterner and Chief Deputy Pat McCardy. In law enforcement as it is in hiring firefighters, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), or anyone who will be expected to perform under extremely traumatic circumstances, such as an active shooter in our schools, bomb evacuations, mass casualty accidents, etc., experience should always trump what's learned out of books, sitting behind a desk. During WWII and Korea, for example, new Lieutenants sent right to the frontlines endangered our troops, because once on the battle field, many fell apart. They were called "90-day wanderers." In Vietnam, we called them "Hard-toes" because their boots had never touched the bottom of a river bed.

I have nothing against Tammy Sterner, she comes to the campaign with commendable "administration" experience overseeing our jail. On the other hand, Deputy Chief Pat McCardy comes to the campaign, having been second in command over the Sheriff's Department, to include having five years experience as a commander of Door County's SWAT Team. In effect, he comes to the campaign having been tested under fire on the front-lines for close to twenty five years. In addition, as a coach at Southern Door High School, he's demonstrated an admirable quality not all law enforcement officers have, and that's an ability to bond with the students.  

From an academic standpoint, when Deputy Sterner ran and lost during the 2014 campaign, I was asked what she might do to gain my vote should she ever choose to run again. My advice was to get cross-trained in all department accountabilities, as well as, take CPTED' courses and get "behind-the-wheel" experience using the Incident Command System (ICS), which is required training for all front-line law enforcement, firefighters, EMTs, and Home-land security personnel.

She not only didn't do any of that, she has worked now for three sheriffs (Bran, Vogel, and Delarwelle), and not one of them saw fit to put her behind the wheel of a squad car. That in my opinion speaks to whether or not she's mission ready to take command during any life threatening incident. Which means, voting her into office may very well endanger responding personnel from all agencies responding under our mutual aid agreements. In addition, I see no evidence she's had any exposure to CPTED' courses (Crime Prevention through Environmental Design), nor law enforcement theory when it comes to creating defendable zones needed to extricate students from a building during a bomb threat or active shooting, nor has she had any exposure to security integration which is critical to coming up with cost effective and affordable security in our schools and at public events and festivals. All subjects that are all too familiar to any officer who's served on the front-lines for most of his career.       

Allow me to give you a summary of what we'd have if Tammy Baldwin and those holding tight to the false hope and promises of Obamacare, where not in Washington over the past six years. It's called, "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance."

If you have time, Click here and read my "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance" cure for Obamacare. A "Republican" cure that guarantees cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance from the moment of conception until natural death. A cure that includes coverage for preexisting conditions, returns 80% of earned premiums back to the insured, caps both insurance company losses as well as profits, and spreads all risks internationally via an actuarially sound series of reinsurance agreement.

All the negative ads run against Leah Vukmire and Scott Walker, relative to healthcare and insurance are at best misleading and at worse totally false. If you want affordable healthcare and insurance, not to mention an improved VA system, vote for Leah Vukmire! She's a nurse and a pistol packing mother of an Armey Ranger and you can't do better than that! 

Any more questions about healthcare and insurance? Click here, go to pages 55-100, and then go vote for Leah and Scott! Read all 200 pages if you have time! Also read my message to congress, page 26, sent to them back in 20112.

  • Everyone would have guaranteed all risk healthcare coverage, to include pre-existing conditions, at affordable rates, from the moment of conception, until one year after natural death. That's right, until one year after we kick the bucket. A whole-life policy is built into the premium to cover all last illness expenses and pay a one year subscription to "Farmer's only dot com" for the surviving spouse.
  • Insurance companies would be required to return 80% of earned premiums back to the insured in the form of paid claims and/or healthcare benefits, leaving 20% for product improvements and administration.
  • The US would be divided into four quadrants using the Mississippi River and the 43 parallel so all risks underwritten within each quadrant could be placed in a common/actuarially sound pool of similar risks, affording a separate pool for pre-existing conditions and catastrophic healthcare claims.
  • Similar to how we handle crop insurance, each pool of insurance would be reinsured, first quadrant to quadrant, north to south, and east to west, and than to the federal government to be reinsured overseas. It's called "Spreading the risk." Keep reading and you'll understand. 

While Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance was designed to be a politically neutral effort to replace Obamacare and return control to the individual/head of the household, thanks to Tammy Baldwin any vote that had a chance to make the republicans look good was either not taken or sandbagged by the democrats. If you think I'm wrong, check Baldwin's voting record. Many times she was present to vote on totally innocuous legislation in the morning and absent any time a major issue had to be resolved. If I were a democrat, and I was at one time, I'd look for a much better candidate than Baldwin. She doesn't even represent her constituency. Check her voting record. 

You don't have to be brave. Not everyone is. YOU just have to have the courage to walk into the booth, close the curtain, and vote!

Thank You for using this page to get voters to the poles on Tuesday November 6, 2018

Read it top to bottom and share it with others via your social media accounts!

What's nice about voting in America, is we can picket and protest, argue and fight, debate and make perfect assess of ourselves, right up and until the moment we walk into the poling booth, pull the curtain, and cast our ballot. My best advice? Vote for the candidate that most closely represents your moral code, business ethics, "your" dreams, and "your" hope for the future.             

Rich Woldt CEO The Risk Management Learning Center

Relax! Have fun. Unless you tell, no one needs to know for whom you voted! Thumbs up to you for voting!

 

If you don't have time to read this page top to bottom, take my short course on picking the candidate who best represents your social, moral, and business ethics. I suspect, we're going to be voting for the same candidates.

#1: Ask yourself who you are and what it is you believe: Are you a Christian, a veteran, a parent? What moral code and business ethics have been passed down through generations in your family? Do you value your freedom and independence? Do you worry about your safety at home, at work, at school, or when you're just out having fun?

#2: Identify your wants and needs: Do you need a good, high paying, long-term, career fulfilling occupation? Do you need a strong and growing economy that guarantees food on your table and a roof over your head?

#3: How do you feel? Do you feel better today than when the democrats were in power? Do you remember the long unemployment lines, stagnant economy, threats against your right to carry, right to work, and right to practice your Christian faith? Do you remember the selling of weapons to Mexican drug lords, releasing enemy combatants back to the battle field while our enemies were chanting "Death to America." Do you remember Benghazi and their failure to secure our embassies, let alone our borders.

#4: Do you remember: Our warnings about Saul David Alinsky's affinity with Barrack Obama, and the influence Alinsky's 8 rules were having on the 2012 elections. To refresh your memory, Google "affinity Alinsky Obama". Click here if you don't know how to Google.

Allow me to jog your memory!

Rules for Radicals: By Saul David Alinsky

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Law Enforcement! Get the drugs off the street and out of our schools, bond with the kids, and advance Brad's victim assistance programs. Get bullying out of our schools, and out of the democrat party. State Commander and Chief: We're going to put more tax money back in taxpayer' pockets and invest the rest in our future. We're gong to bring industries back to Wisconsin, God back into government, and fun back into our future. Right Guards: We going to demand our freedom from an over reaching federal government, assert our independence, secure our borders, rebuild our military and empower our troops so they can get the job done and come home. Tackles: We're going to write "common sense" legislation, weed out wasteful spending, clean up the environment, balance the budget, and mend fences with the opposition so we can all help moving Wisconsin forward.
Moving Wisconsin forward, like getting the Packers to the Super Bowl, is a team effort. To get crime off the streets, we're going to elect Chief Pat McCardy to couch the bullies out of the bleachers, and Brad Schimel to lock up the active shooters. To grow our economy, invest in our future, encourage work over welfare, we're electing Sott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch. To secure our borders, rebuild our military, end the fighting and bring our troops home, we're electing Mother of an Armey Ranger Leah Vukmir and "Once-a-Marine, Always-a-Marine, Mike Gallagher. To write "common sense" legislation and get it passed, we're electing Andre Jacque and Joel Kitchens.

 

Still not convince?

Consider this:

 

Wisconsin is winning!

Let's ignore the negative "Fake" news!

Let's celebrate our success and keep Wisconsin moving forward!

If you've been following this page over the last six months, you've had a chance to fairly and honestly evaluate the candidates on both sides of the isle. You've identified and prioritized the risks you and your family consider to be most important, and you've compared the path forward offered by the republicans to the path proposed by the democrats.

Do you want a Risk Management prediction on the stock market?  The moment the stock market suspects the left will be back in office, it's going to head south just as it did in 2012. Click here for a letter to the editor I wrote the day after the democrats sent Barrack Obama and Tammy Baldwin to Washington back in 2012.

You've had a chance to compare Tony Evers healthcare plan to that republicans have been promoting since the democrats passed the largest tax increase in US history (Obamacare). You learned not only that under Scott Walker's plans, there is coverage for pre-existing conditions but how we're  moving forward toward "actuarially sound" cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance. Healthcare, bye the way, that moves us away from the focus on abortion to a national focus on adoption. We need Christian conservatives like nurse Leah Vukmir and tested under fire Andre Jacque fighting for us as we work together to move Wisconsin forward.

Click here and read how working together we can bring cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance back to Wisconsin!

I ask the voters in Wisconsin: Do you really want Tammy Baldwin after she's dropped the ball at the Tomah VA, and applauded Hilary Clinton during the bungling at Benghazi, not to mention Hillary’s turning 20% of our uranium over to Russia, Bill Clinton’s giving North Korea $5 billion to stop shooting at LA, and Barrack’s handing over $5 billion plus pallets of cash to Iran while they chanted “Death to America.” Add her support for paying ransom for hostages, releasing terrorist back to the battle field, and running our wars from Washington, which when I was in Vietnam and Mike Gallagher was on the frontlines, led to mass casualties of both civilians and our troops.

What about Leah and what about Mike?

For the life of me, our combat troops, my fellow veterans, those forced to live in our sanctuary cities, and the unwanted babies waiting to be born, If we have a brain in our heads, a heart in our bodies, and a soul yet to be saved, I can't see why anyone would want the likes of Tammy Baldwin back in Washington!

When I walk into the booth on November 6th and pull the curtain, you can bet your bottom dollar, I'll be casting my votes for  Leah Vukmir, our 5' 3", pistil packing nurse, Orthodox Catholic, conservative, mother of an Army Ranger, embodiment of Judge Judy, Judge Jeanine Perro, and Annie Oakley; and a solder, who'll always have our backs, whether we're republicans or democrats, our "Once-a-Marine, Always-a-Marine," give me liberty or give me death, "I don't need friends in Washington, I owe too much to my friends back in Wisconsin,"  Mike Gallagher.

 The local race for sheriff in Door County is near and dear to my heart. I ran for sheriff years ago. The best day of my life, was when I pulled out of the race, and went back to teaching Risk Management for the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU). You see, if you're going to run for the top law enforcement office at the local level, and you haven't had significant frontline experience, you're going to eventually get yourself or one of your fellow officers, or one of the responding firefighters or EMTs killed. There are two candidates running for sheriff in Door County. Based on my experience, both will appreciate you voting for Chief Deputy Patrick, the "Duke", the "coach", McCardy. 

Before you go back to class-read to the bottom of this page, I ask you: In Door County: Do you really want a deputy who's spent her whole career behind a desk, a deputy who in the 2014' campaign primary lost to the deputy who shot his own desk, one who's served under three sheriffs, non of which chose to put her behind the wheel of a squad car? Or, do you want a "field-tested" street smart lawman, who under the watchful eye of the same three sheriffs, rose to be second in command of the department. An officer who's had 25 years experience, including five years commanding Door County's SWAT Team?

Our students need a sheriff like Chief Deputy Patrick McCardy, coaching them both in the classroom, and on the paths they choose to follow throughout their lives. Considering the bulling that's gone on during this campaign, do you really want the "Sanctuary-City" democrats bringing their brand of politics to Wisconsin. Click here and refresh your memory before going to the poles.

 

And in Door County, what about Andre Jacque and Caleb Frostmen, a guy that's already been asked to move back to Minnesota? Do you really want the consummate polished professional politician, who's already bailed out once, leaving us holding the bag at the Door County Economic Development Corporation, a candidate who by his own ads, acknowledges Andre Jacque has the best interest of Christian women in mind 24X7, and the best he has to offer is he can handle a wheel barrel; or do you want a committed statesman like Andre Jacque, who's served honorably in the Assembly, and has been endorsed by law enforcement, Right to Life, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), not to mention environmentalist and faith organizations from across the state.

Beware of Caleb Frostmen's misleading ads depicting Andre as being against everything from clean air and water to any women who prefers adoption over aborting their babies before they have a chance to breath. The negative ads run by the democrats during this campaign have sunk to a new low. I ask you! What ever happened to the party that landed us on the moon saying, "Don't ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. Please help us drain the swamp of the socialist who've taken root in our once great democrat party. A party to which Ronald Reagan, not to mention myself were proud to belong.

FYI: Andre Jacque’s work with law enforcement gained him the endorsement of District Attorneys in Brown, Manitowoc, and Outagamie County, as well as all five Republican Sheriffs in the 1st Senate District. Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) three times named Andre Jacque “Wisconsin’s State Legislator of the Year.” Wisconsin Coalition against Domestic Violence awarded him the “Legislative Champion Award,” and Brown Country Crime Prevention Foundation gave him their “Crime fighter Award, while the Manitowoc County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition recognized him for the “IMPACT” he’s had on our lives and community.

Brad Schimel

Brad Schimel has my respect, along with my vote! Brad has earned the committed endorsement of voters on both sides of the isle, for his focus on prosecuting drug lords and those involved in human trafficking, while promoting a growing list of victim assistance programs. Get to know Brad, and it won't take long to realize his passion for convicting criminals comes from his deep Christian faith and selfless commitment to his fellow man. Brad, along with Ron Johnson and Scott Walker, regularly lead us in prayer during our prayer breakfasts following our conventions. I'm proud to consider him my friend, as well as one of the best Attorney Generals in the country.

Brad Schimel

I'm proudly voting for Brad Schimel

During his 25 years in the Waukesha Co. District Attorney’s office, it was Brad Schimel who set up the first full service child advocacy center in Wisconsin. He’s a past president of the “Safe Babies and Healthy Families (SBHA)” board, serving on the board for over 10 years. SBHA is an organization focused on breaking the cycle of child abuse in the home. He’s helped create Waukesha County’s “Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE)” program. SANE raises the bar for examinations looking for signs of child abuse. He’s helped write Waukesha County’s sexual assault policy and develop their “Sexual Assault Response Team.” And, he’s the co-chairman of Waukesha County’s “Child Fatality Review Team” which helped establish the guidelines for child death investigations now being used by many states across the country.

 
 

Joel Kitchens

Finally, let me tell you about Joel Kitchens, one heck of a good large animal veterinarian, who's grown into one of the better statesmen, I've had the privilege to support. Going into his first term, I often kidded him for being a better democrat than he was a republican, but I quickly learned, he had a knack for getting along with both sides of the isle. Like Joel said, if you're going to fight with two bulls at the same time, it's a good idea to first become their friend.

I went back and compared his debates from his first campaign to the one put on this year, by the Wisconsin League of Women Voters (WLWV). As always, he handled the debate with more class than most who've outranked their opponents in both knowledge and experience. Were most would have cut her to the core, Joel let her down gently, so she could go home with her pride in tact, knowing she had accomplished much just having the experience of running for public office.

I'm proud to say, I'm voting for Joel Kitchens on Tuesday, November 6th. He's more than the right man for the job.

 

Joel Kitchens

I'm voting for Joel Kitchens

Joel is a fence mender when arguments break out on the floor at the capitol. He was able to get new laws concerning manure management that protect our groundwater, but don't put farmers out of business. His efforts have been endorsed by the farm bureau and dairy association, as well as the conservation voters and clean Wisconsin.

Knowing Joel, he'll be the first to forgive the far left for what I'm hoping will be the backlash that keeps them out of office.

So what about the democrats party' line?

In Wisconsin, they're protesting the wall, and by default hopping for open borders, sanctuary cities, and government run healthcare. In Wisconsin, they're trashing our 4' X 8's, stomping on our yard signs and making threatening calls to any small business that dares to support our republican candidates. Doubt my word? Click here for an example of the handy work. Why? In Wisconsin, the democratic party has climbed on the blue-wave started by the socialist wing of their party, and now has been fueled by every sick comedian and main-street anchormen (and women) willing to spread their hate and anger from coast to coast.

What ever happened to the democrat party that landed us on the moon, stood up to the Russians in the Bay of Pigs, and always, always stood up and saluted our flag? I know they're still out there, and I know they'll come back stronger than ever once they root out the evil that's infiltrated their party.

Don't blame me for the mess the democrats have caused for themselves. Did they really think, just by coming up with a catchy "climb on our blue-wave" slogan we'd all be willing to turn the other cheek and blindly follow them into the voting booth on November 6th?

Unfortunately, we don't have time to wait. If their sick bullying tactics drive our churches underground, and capture the minds of our youth, they'll rot our culture inside out and damage our American spirit forever. Let's reclaim our once positive, forward thinking America. Just listen to how well we're doing in America thanks to Donald Trump and Scott Walker (click here). We don't have to follow the blue-wave pessimists back to unfunded pension funds, building railroads no one wants to ride, downsized sodas and low flow shower heads. All we have to do is drain the swamps of the far left doomsday prognosticators that have infiltrated the democrat party. Vote a straight "Republican" ticket on November 6th. England's Prime Minister said it best, when she said: "European Socialism works just fine, until you run out of other peoples money."   

Sadly, there are many, many good and accomplished statesmen and women within the democrat party. It's just this time, they didn't choose to run. 

Now! If you haven't already, read down to the bottom of this page, please do. You'll be glad you did. And then, get out and vote a straight "Republican" ballot on Tuesday, November 6th. Thank you for waking up before it's too late. And thank you for helping our republican candidates win at the poles in November. Now get out and vote!               Rich Woldt

Ronald Reagan said - "Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid!"

Republicans say - It's time to get out the vote, and fight back! 

Still not convinced?

"Incase you haven't heard, or seen the evidence posted in our "deep-throat" files, the democrats, from the highest levels of their party, have put out the word to trash our democracy, threaten small businesses, and do whatever it takes to "bully" voters into voting for their candidates on November 6th. Please, click here and read Saul David Alinsky's 8 rules for radicals, and benchmark the democrats campaign strategy for yourself. It's an excerpt from my proposed path the cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance. Click here for a message from our Founding Fathers. Later, after you've read to the bottom of this page, come back, click here and read my message to congress and letter to the world credit union movement.

If you're not yet convinced, our field-tested, dedicated, patriotic candidates are not worthy of your vote, go to our deep-throat files and watch our hidden camera videos of Wisconsin's democrats trashing our signs, and listen to tapes of their calls to small businesses across the state, threatening "consequences" if they continue to support any republican candidate.

Let me give you a taste of what you'll find in our "deep-throat" files. A family, in memory of their father, made their own "Make America Great Again (MAGA)" sign. The democrats trashed it within a week. Our once a Marine, always a Marine, Mike Gallagher came to the rescue, offering one of his 4' X 8's so they could get their sign back up before the end of the campaign. He proved once again, the Marines always have our backs. God willing, every Marine, Army, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard veteran in Wisconsin, will vote for Leah Vukmire. She's our pistil packing, mother of an Army Ranger, mission ready to drain the swamps in Washington of the likes of Tammy Baldwin. 

I ask the voters in Wisconsin: Do you really want a governor, a sheriff, or legislators who'll condone these bullying tactics, let alone advocate open borders, and sanctuary cities; and by their silence condone partial birth abortions, by their silence condone running wars from Washington, by their silence condone apologizing for our focus on America's best interest, by their silence condone Baldwin's failure at the VA, made worse by her failure to aggressively represent her constituency, voting in the morning on meaningless legislation and being conspicuously absent in the afternoon, when her constituents needed her the most? Want a challenge? Find one piece of meaningful legislation "she" authored. Go ahead! I dare you! That's as intimidating as I can get. Tony Evers is proud to claim he's a good teacher. I'm sure he is. What lesson has he taught our students, when it comes to the benefits of bullying any one with whom you disagree? 

What about the cost of our healthcare and insurance?

The lies being told about Leah Vukmir and the coverage of pre-existing conditions, and her being in the pockets of the insurance industry and so bad, no reputable insurance underwriter or actuary would be caught dead voting for her opponent. Click here (I prefer you'd wait until you read to the bottom of this page. It's save you time as it's over 200 pages. If you must read it now, I suggest you read my letter to Congress on page 26, than skip to page 56 for answers to the most frequently asked questions.) and Read "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance" my cure for the Obamacare Plaque. It's a free-market, capitalist solution to our escalating cost of our healthcare and insurance, as opposed to the democrats' government run rework of socialized medicine. Taxpayer funding of adoption replaces taxpayer funding of abortions, while healthcare costs are spread via regional, national, and subsequently international reinsurance agreements. I guarantee it'll work, but only if Scott Walker, Leah Vukmir, and Mike Gallagher are in office. Check her voting record. Tammy Baldwin has voted against every effort to move America forward when it comes to restructuring our healthcare delivery system or reengineer our health insurance industry to make it more cost effective and affordable. Check her record. She's voted against anything that might make Donald Trump or Scott Walker look like they know what they're doing.

Hasn't anyone told the democrats, the only reason Obamacare became a law, was our Supreme Court ruled it to be a tax? The largest tax in US history!

Ronald Reagan said: The only difference between democrats and republicans is, when buried in a tunnel of debt, republican dig toward day light, while democrats dig deeper tunnels. Take a look at the declining debt structure, our stabilized economy and just vote Scott back into office.

I'm going to leave the path we've followed over the past month posted below. Please, please, I beg you, read this page top to bottom, before going to the poles. Help us get the vote out, so everyone across Wisconsin, will have a chance to go to the poles, walk into the booth, pull the curtain, and vote their conscience; vote for the candidate they feel most closely exemplifies their moral code, their business ethics, their faith in God, and their sense of social responsibility.

Step #2

Take time to learn the difference between democrats, republicans, and socialists!

Ronald Reagan said: "The difference between democrats and republicans is, when buried in a tunnel of debt, democrats dig deeper tunnels, while republicans dig toward daylight.

 

What's the difference?

Between Republicans and Democrats, when it comes to taxes and affordable healthcare?

The difference has to do with their respective perception of taxes. Democrats, especially those who've bought into Bernie Sander's brand of European Socialism, consider taxes a necessary expense or cost of living in a government regulated society. While republicans, view taxes as an investment in our future. It's why democrats will always migrate back to a host of tax supported social welfare programs, while republicans will invest our taxes in incentives, that attract job creators into Wisconsin. FOXCONN is a good example. Governor Walker and our republican legislature, structured an agreement that ties our investment in FOXCONN to their commitment to create long-term, high paying, meaningful employment for residents of Wisconsin. It's also why republicans will freeze tuition at the UW as an investment in graduates getting ready to take on the jobs created by the companies moving into the state.

This difference is precisely why I'm voting for Andre Jacque and definitely not for Caleb Frostmen. He was, or could have been an investment Door County taxpayers made in not only leveraging the jobs created by FOXCONN, but a significant asset for Door County, focusing on leveraging our investment in our schools and NWTC. As it turned out, Frostmen turned out to be a democrat in republican' clothing. It's the same reason why I'm voting for Scott Walker and not for Tony Evers. The Tony we knew viewed FOXCONN as a great investment in high tech jobs for his students, and looked forward to the investment FOXCONN would be making in the UW system, until someone convinced him to run for Governor, and then all bets were off. As you can see, he abruptly turned his back on Scott Walker and the students who had for so long placed their trust in him. 

  • This same difference in perception, carries over to our efforts to create cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance. The democrats are notorious for misinterpreting what republicans are trying to do. That's a nice way of saying they're lying through their teeth in their negative ads condemning Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir.
  • Obamacare, the largest tax increase in US history, was "One Big Academic Mistake for America (OBAMA) and democrats know it. I really don't want to do this, but for the sake of my country, I'm going to link you to a text book I wrote called, "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance." I've yet to have it published, but if you click here, you'll get a "deep-throat" draft of the book Paul Ryan and Ron Johnson hand carried back to Washington back in 2012. It's a "Republican-Risk Management" plan I titled "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance, because every decision is made by the head of the household. Read a message from our Founding Fathers (page 22) and my message to Congress (page 26), and Saul David Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals (page 170). For the last six years, Tammy Baldwin and her left wing allies have blocked every effort republicans made to bring cost effective and affordable healthcare back to Wisconsin.

Note: Read my book and vote for Leah Vukmir and Mike Gallagher. Leah has the answer to cost effective and affordable health insurance and Mike has the answer to rebuilding our military, empowering the frontlines, ending the wars and bringing our troops home.    

Do yourself a big favor! Check out Tammy Baldwin's record of attendance against her voting record. You'll find she's always there to vote on legislation that is basically insignificant in the morning and absent when it comes to making the hard calls in the afternoon. For the life of me, I can't understand why democrats still back her. She's more than dropped the ball at the VA, she's dropped the ball representing good people voting on the left side of the isle. Don't take my word for it, check her voting record. And while you're at it, ask yourself why Christians are putting up with her position on partial birth abortions. From every angle and every perspective, I'm sure you'll conclude that Leah Vukmir, our 5' 3" pistol packing, Orthodox Christian, mother of an Army Ranger, a little bit of Judge Judy, Judge Jeanine Perro and Annie Oakley all rolled up into one, is our best bet to drain the swamps in Washington.  

 

Don't believe Tony Evers or Tammy Baldwin's misleading statements about health insurance. Read my book!

Allow me to give you a summary of what we'd have if Tammy Baldwin and those holding tight to the false hope and promises of Obamacare, where not in Washington over the past six years. It's called, "Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance."

  • Everyone would have guaranteed all risk healthcare coverage, to include pre-existing conditions, at affordable rates, from the moment of conception, until one year after natural death. That's right, until one year after we kick the bucket. A whole-life policy is built into the premium to cover all last illness expenses and pay a one year subscription to "Farmer's only dot com" for the surviving spouse.
  • Insurance companies would be required to return 80% of earned premiums back to the insured in the form of paid claims and/or healthcare benefits, leaving 20% for product improvements and administration.
  • The US would be divided into four quadrants using the Mississippi River and the 43 parallel so all risks underwritten within each quadrant could be placed in a common/actuarially sound pool of similar risks, affording a separate pool for pre-existing conditions and catastrophic healthcare claims.
  • Similar to how we handle crop insurance, each pool of insurance would be reinsured, first quadrant to quadrant, north to south, and east to west, and than to the federal government to be reinsured overseas. It's called "Spreading the risk." Keep reading and you'll understand. 

While Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance was designed to be a politically neutral effort to replace Obamacare and return control to the individual/head of the household, thanks to Tammy Baldwin any vote that had a chance to make the republicans look good was either not taken or sandbagged by the democrats. If you think I'm wrong, check Baldwin's voting record. Many times she was present to vote on totally innocuous legislation in the morning and absent any time a major issue had to be resolved. If I were a democrat, and I was at one time, I'd look for a much better candidate than Baldwin. She doesn't even represent her constituency. Check her voting record. 

 

England's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said:

"Socialism works just fine until you run out of someone else's money."

It's hard to argue that history isn't repeating itself on the left side of the isle. After all, the influence self proclaimed Socialist, Bernie Sanders, has had on Tammy Baldwin and the democrat' platform has more than pushed their candidates down the slippery slope toward European Socialism.

The worried look on those 4'X4' portraits of Tammy Baldwin along Wisconsin' highways seams to say: "Please God, don't let anyone voting for me tune into FOX News, and find out I have the endorsement of the socialist wing of our democrat party. If they do, my campaign is over."

 

 

Step #3

Get an "up-close and personal introduction to our candidates.

Let's "Pray"! And than, "Let's Roll"

Each year, at our Republican' State Convention, we hold a prayer breakfast on Sunday morning. We mend fences, and ask God to forgive the anger that creeps into all conventions, and bless our fellow Wisconsinites (Democrats and independents included) with the wisdom, courage, strength and integrity needed to move Wisconsin forward.

At our past convention, Ron Johnson, offered an opening prayer reflecting on the wisdom in Mathew (“When we're weak, it's than we're strong, because when we’re at our weakest point, it’s than we realize how much we need God’s help and understanding to move Wisconsin forward.

Brad Schimel told about a case he lost, involving a young girl who’d been assaulted. He told of walking out of the court room with her and her family, when she looked up at him and asked: “Was it all worth it? And, where do I go from here? Not knowing what to say, Brad asked if he could take the files he was holding back to his office. He said he went back to his office, shut the door, put the files down, and got down on his knees and prayed. When he looked over to where he’d placed her files, he noticed his research files for one of his victim assistance projects. He said, he got off his knees, went back to the family waiting in the hall, and said: Look around! Ten years ago, there would have been no one here to support you. Five years ago, maybe a few. Three years ago? Maybe half as many. Look how many there are here today. Thanks to your courage, your willingness to fight back, and with God’s help, we’re all going to move forward together.

Scott Walker, as usual, closed our prayer breakfast reading from his family' bible. Before closing the prayer breakfast, he offers everyone else in the room a chance to offer their special prayer. In past years, I remember prayers being offered by Paul Ryan, Mike Gallagher, and John Macco, and I'm sure, with your vote, Leah Vukmir will be joining us next year. The number at breakfast has grown every year. God willing, our democrat' alies will join us next year. We'll buy!   

God Bless the USA! and God help us move Wisconsin Forward! 

Amen

Thumbs Up for Scott Walker!

 Low unemployment!

The left can criticize Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch all they want, for doing their job, but they'll never give them a chance to criticize them for not doing their job.

Moving Wisconsin Forward

Not only are Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch moving Wisconsin forward. They're doing it with style and class. 

Their stated mission: We will lower unemployment, reduce our deficit, lower taxes, invest in education, stop the skyrocketing cost of education, improve the quality of education, increase tourism across the state, and invest in state of the art communication technologies.

Scott Walker/Rebecca Kleefisch are fighting for quality education in all parts of Wisconsin: How? By helping students succeed, with the largest actual dollar investment in our schools in state history!

With Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch, we're now making sure we're getting a quality education in all parts of the state. schools are safer, because of a $100 million school safety plan. Rural schools, in smaller school districts now receive an addition $400 to use at their discretion.

Scott Walker put a freeze on UW System tuition for Wisconsin students 6 years in a row. School districts are now empowered to hire and retain teachers based on merit. They have more flexibility, when it comes to putting more resources into the classroom.

FYI: In Wisconsin, there's no way the left can defend Tammy Baldwin's dropping the ball at the Tomah VA. Nor in Door County, can they defend Caleb Frostmen's performance and fast departure from the Door County Economic Development Corporation. 

 

Thumbs Up for Rebecca Kleefisch

Eliminated deficit

 

Vote for:

Leah Vukmir

Leah Vukmire

"Lookout Tammy, I'm coming to get you!"

Leah Vukmir is our 5' 3", pistil packing nurse, Orthodox Catholic, conservative, mother of an Army Ranger, embodiment of Judge Judy, Judge Jeanine Perro, and Annie Oakley. She stands mission ready to help drain the swamps in Washington, move Wisconsin forward, and keep America on track and heading in the right direction.  

The portrait of Tammy Baldwin dotting the highways in Wisconsin, looks more and more worried the closer we get to November 6th. Baldwin seams to be saying, "I hope to God, voters don't tune into FOX News before November 6th. She knows,

Christians on both sides of the isle are fed up with her position on partial birth abortions.

Mike Gallagher

Once a Marine - Always a Marine - Need we say more?

Mike has been tested under fire. Veterans, again on both sides of the isle, are not only angered by Tammy Baldwin dropping the ball at the Tomah VA, but are applauded by her support of Hilary during the bungling at Benghazi, not to mention Hillary’s turning 20% of our uranium over to Russia, Bill Clinton’s giving North Korea $5 billion to stop shooting at LA, and Barrack’s handing over $5 billion plus pallets of cash to Iran while they chanted “Death to America.” Add in her support for paying ransom for hostages, releasing terrorist back to the battle field, and running our wars from Washington and I guess if I screwed up the country, half as much as she has, I'd be worried too.

Vote for:

Mike Gallagher

Once a Marine Always a Maine

Vote For:

Patrick McCarty

Mission-ready

4 years Chief Deputy

5 years SWAT Team

Experienced in Incident Command and Control (ICS)

25 years on the front-lines of Door County Law Enforcement

"The working relationship Chief Deputy Pat McCarty has developed with our Attorney General Brad Schimel, and the trust he's built while coaching football at Southern Door, makes Pat an ideal candidate for Sheriff in Door County.       Rich Woldt

Chief Deputy Pat McCarty has 24 years of experience on the frontlines of law enforcement, 17 years as a patrol officer leading up to his last four years serving as Door County’s Chief Deputy. Ask any County Sheriff and they’ll tell you, the Chief Deputy must stand mission ready to assume all the sheriff’s duties anytime the sheriff is out of town or out of commission. Equally, if not more important, over the four years as Chief Deputy, The "Duke" has built up a professional working relationship with Attorney General Brad Schimel, also running for reelection. Add to that, his training and field experience with incident command and control-The Incident Command System (ICS) and his five years experience on Door County's SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team, makes him "field-tested", and mission ready the next time we have an active shooter in our schools, at work, during a festival, or on main street during a mob-demonstration.  

The Incident Command System (ICS)

Chief McCarty's experience, having been deployed under a "unified" command using the Incident Command System (ICS), makes him mission ready to become Door County's next Sheriff. We must remember, all responding law enforcement agencies, firefighters, Emergency governments, Red Cross, military and Homeland Security personnel, as well as all agencies and departments responding under our mutual aid agreements, will be relying on our sheriff's field-tested knowledge of the Incident Command System (ICS).

While his opponent, Deputy Sterner has had a commendable career in jail administration, her career focus has been limited to the incarceration and rehabilitation of inmates. While inmate’ recidivism is an important challenge for law enforcement, her lack of training and experience with the Incident Command System (ICS), could make her a potential liability during most life threatening incidents, or large scale mass casualty events.

Vote for:

Andre Jacque

I'm voting for Andre Jacque!

Andre is a strong-minded (some say “bull-headed” but always fair), hard-working, Christian, conservative, constitutionalists, who’s served us well in the Assembly, and will serve us well if given a seat in the Senate.

During Andre’s time in the Assembly, he helped free Wisconsin’ small businesses from the 36% premium increases linked to Obamacare, helped drive Wisconsin’s unemployment rate down from 9.3% to 2.9%, now our lowest in Wisconsin’ history, ranking us in the top 5 states in percentage of people in the workforce. During his tenure in the Assemble, he helped us dig ourselves out of Doyle’s 3.6 billion dollar budget shortfall, helped negotiate both sides of the isle toward a “balanced” budget, eliminating the state’s portion of our tax bill. By the end of this budget, both our property and income taxes will be lower than they were in 2010, and our cumulative tax relief will have exceeded 8 billion dollars.

During Andre’s time in the legislature, he’s helped channel more "actual" dollars into K12 education than any legislature in Wisconsin’s history, and fought to unshackle teachers from union overlords so they can now teach to their fullest potential, hired and promoted more on merit and performance, than tenor and seniority. Thanks to Andre Jacque, we’re now focusing students more on career paths based on their interests and expertise than the dictates of an outdated government’ bureaucracy.

Andre Jacque’s work with law enforcement has gained him the endorsement of District Attorneys in Brown, Manitowoc, and Outagamie County, as well as all five Republican Sheriffs in the 1st Senate District. Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) three times named Andre Jacque “Wisconsin’s State Legislator of the Year.” Wisconsin Coalition against Domestic Violence awarded him the “Legislative Champion Award,” and Brown Country Crime Prevention Foundation gave him their “Crime fighter Award, while the Manitowoc County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition recognized him for the “IMPACT” he’s had on our lives and community. Teachers, like Andre, because of the progress he made while in the Assembly, to secure their schools, and focus school curriculums on developing the skills students will need to land the higher paying jobs. The jobs brought back to Wisconsin thanks to Scott Walker.

His opponent is Caleb Frostmen

Caleb is a good guy, but compared to Andre Jacque, he has little on which we can support our vote, let alone our confidence he can handle the job. In fact, whatever it was he failed to do our Door County Economic Development Corporation should raise a proverbial "Red" flag. We first invest money through our economic development corporation to hire an employee, ostensibly to pull together our public schools, our parochial schools, our Northwest Technical College, and training resources at our industrial park, and come up with a program to graduate students, mission ready, for one of the estimated 13,000 high tech jobs, created by FOXCONN. Rumor has it, Frostmen took a 30% pay cut, when he was told to explore a new career. In my opinion, a vote for him is a risk we shouldn't take.

Vote for:

Brad Schimel

I'm voting for Brad Schimel

During his 25 years in the Waukesha Co. District Attorney’s office, it was Brad Schimel who set up the first full service child advocacy center in Wisconsin. He’s a past president of the “Safe Babies and Healthy Families (SBHA)” board, serving on the board for over 10 years. SBHA is an organization focused on breaking the cycle of child abuse in the home. He’s helped create Waukesha County’s “Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE)” program. SANE raises the bar for examinations looking for signs of child abuse. He’s helped write Waukesha County’s sexual assault policy and develop their “Sexual Assault Response Team.” And, he’s the co-chairman of Waukesha County’s “Child Fatality Review Team” which helped establish the guidelines for child death investigations now being used by many states across the country.

 

Vote for:

Joel Kitchens

I'm voting for Joel Kitchens

Joel is a fence mender when arguments break out on the floor at the capitol. He was able to get new laws concerning manure management that protect our groundwater, but don't put farmers out of business. His efforts have been endorsed by the farm bureau and dairy association, as well as the conservation voters and clean Wisconsin.

Knowing Joel, he'll be the first to forgive the far left for what I'm sure are going to be the backlash that keeps them out of office.

 

Thumbs up to those who go to the poles November 6th and vote a straight "Republican" ballot!

  • Thumbs up to our democrats who've not bought into the fake news, sick humor, and bulling campaign tactics called for by the those holding the purse strings at the top of their party.

  • Thumbs up also to my fellow union members, who've found the courage to stand up to the union bosses, who've commandeered the power of collective bargaining and used it more for their own benefit, than in the best interest of their members. Once freed by Act #10 it took most of our teacher' unions multiple votes to recertify their union. Once freed to be judged more on performance than seniority, and once freed to vote their conscience rather than their party line, most teachers chose their freedom and voted across the isle, which ever that direction happened to be. God Bless America!     

Unfortunately, I can't give a thumbs up to Tony Evers during this campaign. I know Tony, and I know how hard he fought to help Scott Walker free union members from the corrupt union overlords. While I'm frustrated by him taking their money, and turning his back on we teachers, God willing Scott will win and Tony can go back to doing what he does best; teaching his students right from left, good from bad, and how not to be a bully. God willing, he'll stand up someday, and condemn the political tactics now thought acceptable by voters clinging with him to the blue wave.

I predict a major backlash for the democrats!

Why? for the bully tactics they used, setting an awful  example for our kids.

Tony Evers!

With bullying a major problem in our schools, what are you going to tell your students when you get back to school?

We have too many God fearing, honest and proud democrats in Wisconsin to allow socialist sympathizers to take over their party.

There's going to be one heck of a backlash featuring a cross over vote for our republican candidates. At least, for that we can all pray. 

If you think they're out of control now, click here for a link to our case file on Door County democrats during the 2014 and 2012 campaign. Driven by enormous funding coming into the Baldwin, Frostmen, and Sterner campaign from the west coast, and embolden by the far left socialist wing of the democrat party, they're now cutting out the grommets so we can't reuse our 4'X8's, which this time around cost us up to $70 a sign. Again this campaign, they're calling local businesses and threatening a boycott if they dare to place any republican signs on their property. Here are some examples tactics used by supporters of our local democrat candidates. Here is just a small sample of the handy-work. Let's vote the democrats out of office.

So, what difference will your vote make?

Remember what Ronald Reagan said: The difference between democrats and republicans is, when we're buried in a tunnel of debt, republicans will dig toward daylight, while democrats will dig a deeper tunnel. 

He should have gone on to say, "The difference between republicans and democrats is, democrats view taxes as an expense we must pay to live in a government regulated society, while republicans view taxes as an investment in our future. So, do we want to go left to a U-turn back to growing an ever over reaching government, or right and fight for our right to carry, right to work, right to worship, and right to secure our borders, and defend our homeland as we see fit.

  • A case in point: Thanks to Scott Walker, Joel Kitchens, and Andre Jacque, in Wisconsin, our debts are coming down, unfunded pension liabilities left over from the Doyle administration are now a distant memory, unemployment lines have disappeared, our taxes keep going down, and our stock market keeps hitting record highs. So, why would anyone want the blue-fog democrats back in office? The democrats will never be able to match the republicans growth of our economy at over 4.2%.

From the highest levels in the democrat party, the word went out to trash our signs, target call businesses and threaten a boycott if they continue to support republican candidates, and in every way as their US Attorney General Erick Holder said...Kick them while they're down!
To be posted here: Videos of democrats steeling, painting, and all in all destroying our signs. Trackers caught at our Lincoln Day Dinners and meet and greets. Videos of democrats steeling, painting and demolishing personal property. Click here for a link to what they did in 2012 and 2014. Also, names of small businesses they called threatening a boycott if they didn't remove our republican yard signs from their property.

FYI: In Door County, we’ve put up signs along what we’ve dubbed “Demolition Highway” (Egg Harbor Rd, coming into Sturgeon Bay), as well as in the demolition district of Liberty Grove, but the blue-winds just keeps blowing them away. Five Andre Jacque 4X8’s have already blown out to sea. All republican 4X8’s were placed the requisite distance from the center line and are in compliance with Wisconsin Statue 12.04. However, drive up #42 and back #57, and you’ll be lucky to find 60% of Tammy Baldwin 4X4’s, let alone the Frostman’ blue yard signs in compliance with #12.04. But that the way they choose to bully. Do we really want Evers and Sterner in a position of trust?  Get out and vote for Scott Walker and Pat McCardy!

 

Step #4

Go back to school and review basic business principles that'll keep Wisconsin moving forward!

Review Basic Risk Management (RM) Principles and Practices

Two (2) "types" of risks (Pure and Speculative):

We all face only two types of risks, "Pure risks" and "Speculative" risks:  Pure risks, when they occur only result in losses. For example, natural disasters, a terrorist attack, an active shooter in our schools, or having someone suck the brain out of your head, before you have a chance to breath are all "Pure" risks. Going to the polls to vote, is a "Speculate" risks. You hope to choose the right candidate, but if you don't, God only knows how high your taxes might rise, how long the unemployment lines will grow, or how much freedom we'll loose before the next election.

When we vote, we're taking a "speculative" risk. We hope the  candidate we choose will be mission ready to save our butts the next time a tornado goes through town, we're confronted by an active shooter, or an abortionists reaches in to, well you get the picture.

We measure risk' Frequency and Severity:

Risks are measured by their "frequency", or how often they occur, and "severity" or the extent of the losses when they occur. We vote for the candidate who's best qualified to reduce the frequency and severity of our losses.

Risk Managers us a three step method to first "Identify" than "Measure", and finally "Control all the pure and speculative risks created living in a free market, capitalist, faith based community/country. Our goal, going to the polls, is to elect the candidates most familiar with the lifestyle we choose to lead, the cultural values we choose to pursue, not to mention the corporate ethics and moral code we hope to pass on to the next generation.

The Risk Management Method: (Identify - Measure - Control):

Once all the risks you've created living in a free, independent, capitalist' America have been identified, you're goal is to measure each so as to establish your priorities and focus on controlling the risks most important to you and your family. 

Note! No one, nor political party has all the right answers, so we'd be well advised to stop bickering, mend our fences, shake hands and go to the poles ready to drain the swamps and elect those most mission ready to move Wisconsin forward.

Five (5) Risk Control Tools (Avoid, Reduce, Spread, Assume, Transfer): 

AVOID:  If we're smart, we'll choose candidates with a proven track record like Scott Walker, Brad Schimel, Mike Gallagher, Leah Vukmir, Andre Jacque, Pat McCarty,  and Joel Kitchens. If not, we'll go with those who've already dropped the ball at the VA, skipped out on former employer, or spent her career behind a desk marching time until retirement.

REDUCE: If risks can't be avoided, their frequency and/or severity can often be reduced. For example, getting rid of sanctuary cities, applying Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles, defendable zones, and bailout routes at our schools, will reduce both the frequency and severity of terrorist attacks and active shooter' incidents.

SPREAD:  Reinsuring pre-existing conditions, as well as catastrophic losses across the country and around the world, spreads the risk and will drive down the cost of healthcare, health insurance, drugs, and medication to a cost effective and affordable level. (Refer to the Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance proposal hand carried to Washington by Paul Ryan in 2012. An actuarially sound, market driven, private sector health insurance program that's been blocked every foot of the way by the democrats.

ASSUME: Risks you can't avoid, reduce, or spread any thinner can be assumed, but only up to a point you can afford. For example, you take a deductible on your automobile insurance, knowing you can afford a fender bender, but than transfer the rest of the risk into a pool of insurance, that's actuarially sound enough to indemnify you (put you back in the like position you were in before the accident).

TRANSFER: At some point, risks most likely need to be transferred into an actuarially sound pool of insurance. The problem with Obamacare, or for that matter, most single pay health insurance programs, is all risks are transferred into a government pool, with no incentive for the insured to avoid, reduce, spread, or assume any of the risk. That's why candidates fighting the repeal of Obamacare, are in effect shooting us all in the foot. Refer to the draft of Home-rule Healthcare and Insurance for a detailed path to private sector, cost effective and affordable healthcare and insurance.    

 

Make sure the candidates you choose are focused on YOUR needs, Your moral code, Your business ethics!

 

Let's make sure the candidates we choose are focused on our needs!

Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs"

Abraham Maslow, a Psychology Professor at the University of Wisconsin in the 1940’s, wrote about the priority of our needs, when we're under stress. According to his “Hierarchy of Needs” theory, we all need to first focus on our physiological needs; finding a meaningful, long-term, high paying job, putting food on the table, and a roof over our heads. Only after our physiological needs are met, do we search for a place to belong, and a path to a promising future.

So what's wrong with all those distracting negative ads, asking us to blindly climb on a "Blue-wave" heading off into the fog? Just about everything. They not only give us a distorted view of reality, they lead us to making fool-hearty decisions at the ballot box. Unfortunately, they do nothing but take our eye off the ball long enough to elect the least qualified candidate.   

So I ask you, now that Scott Walker's governing style has stopped the corporate' exodus out of Wisconsin, and he's attracting world-class employers, the creators of high paying jobs into Wisconsin, while Donald Trump is focused on bringing our automobile industry back to the Midwest, who in their right mind wouldn't want both back in office, for as long as they're willing to serve?

Why would anyone want to turn left with the democrats to a U-turn back to debt-financing railroads no one will ride, leading to unfunded pension liabilities, higher taxes and deeper debts we'll have to kick down the road for future generations.

Why would any union member want to go back to being told where, when and how hard to work, let alone for whom to vote, no matter how much freedom and independence they have to forgo to ride the "Blue-wave" into the blue-fog heading to the unemployment lines. Unemployment lines, bye the way, that don't exist anymore in Wisconsin thanks to Scott Walker. 

 

Let's make sure the candidates we choose are mission ready to serve!

The Incident Command System (ICS)

The Incident Command System (ICS) has been around since the early 1900's. It was used to assemble resources in the southwestern corner of the US, and build the Hoover Dam project, turning out southwest desert into fertile farmland, and became law enforcement's command structure of choice after WWII, when it became obvious agencies from far and wide, would be needed when responding to a large scale crisis.

I bring this to your attention, because... voters in Door County, have a choice between Chief Deputy Patrick McCardy, with 25 years experience on the frontlines, 5 years commanding Door County's Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team, which tested his knowledge of the Incident Command System under fire; is being challenged by Deputy Tammy Sterner, whose had a commendable record over seeing Door County's jailhouse, but little or no frontline law enforcement experience, and consequently no viable knowledge of the Incident Command System. In my opinion, it would be fool hearty for the residents of Door County to vote her into office. 

In the race for Sheriff, back in 2014,Sterner, came in a distant third to the deputy who shot his own desk. When asked what she might do to be ready to run again. I recommended she be cross-trained within the department, and gain frontline, real world exposure to the Incident Command System. While throughout her 25 year career, she has worked under the watchful eye of three highly respected Door County Sheriffs (Bran, Vogel, and Delarwell) not one saw fit to put her behind the wheel of a squad car.

If Door County voters are concerned about our response to an active shooter in our schools, drug lords on our streets, or terrorists coming into the county, their safest bet is to vote for the candidate who's been field tested under fire. Their best bet is to vote for the "Duke" Chief Deputy Patrick McCardy to be our next sheriff.

Is Caleb Frostmen suffering from the "Peter Principle"?

We've all suffered from the "Peter Principle." After a long six months selling insurance, three companies asked me to go work for their competition. The "Peter Principle" says that at some point we all reach the level of our own incompetence. Meaning, even the best welder might not be the best carpenter, or the best electrician might not make the best brain surgeon. It also stands to reason, why the guy at running a wheel barrel may not be the best candidate for public office. 

So what about Caleb Frostmen? We first, the taxpayers of Door County that is, invested  money in our Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC) in hope they'd hire someone capable of pulling together training resources at NWTC, our high schools, as well as training resources at our industrial park, and come up with a program that would make sure our graduates are ready for the high tech, high paying, jobs being created by FOXCONN coming into Wisconsin.

While Caleb Frostmen was not their first choice, he lasted less than two years on the job, before he was asked to take a hike and pursue another line of work. Now there's an unwritten rule in corporate America, when it comes to hiring mid level and upper management. It basically says, the new hires will be allowed at least three to five years to reengineer a project, and implement their new ideas. We don't have to know the details, to realize, Caleb Frostmen reached his "Peter Principle" faster then the DCEDC expected. Our best advice for Caleb might be to hold on to his job pouring concrete.

Step # 5:  Choose the Right candidate for the Right reasons!

Two Thumbs UP Wisconsin!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is history repeating itself on the democrat side of the isle?

Mission Statement:

I will convince you to elect only God fearing, properly vetted, mission ready, candidates to public office in Wisconsin.

I will convince you to condemn the sick political humor that's fueling the main street media, confront those who support partial birth abortions, promote sanctuary cities, advocate open borders, and see nothing wrong with paying ransoms for the release of hostages, releasing enemy combatants back to the battle field, and give money to our enemies, while they're chanting "Death to America."

I will convince you to vote only for candidates who'll fight for our freedom and independence, right to work, right to carry, right to worship, and right to live in a free county, free of taxes, free of government regulations, and free to live in a country driven forward by an open, free market economy. .

Finally, I will ask you to choose candidates who’ve been properly vetted, field-tested, and who stand mission ready to keep Wisconsin moving forward, and America on track, heading in the right direction.

 Strategic Action Plan (SAP)

I will first give you an up close and personal introduction to the Republican candidates on the November 6th ballot, followed by an introduction to the “Risk Management (RM0”) method of management, and finally, using the RM method of management, I will sit your family down and help “you” identify, measure, and control the health risks you’ve created, living in a free market, “Capitalist” society.

 

It's hard to argue that history isn't repeating itself on the left side of the isle. After all, the influence self proclaimed Socialist, Bernie Sanders, has had on Tammy Baldwin and the democrat' platform has more than pushed their candidates down the slippery slope toward European Socialism.

It was England's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who said: "Socialism works just fine until you run out of someone else's money."

Note: To me, the worried look on those 4'X4' portraits of Tammy Baldwin along Wisconsin' highways is saying: "Please God, don't let anyone voting for me tune into FOX News, or my campaign is over."

 

Words of Wisdom

As long as America remain woefully uninformed, mislead by fake news, and misguided by negative ads, our political' swamps are going to grow wider, our debts deeper, we'll continue to mortgage our liberty, and our freedom will be lost!

It all explains, why in Wisconsin, Tony Ebers sees nothing wrong with raising taxes, and why Jim Doyle saw nothing wrong with building a railroad between Milwaukee and Madison, while arranging the engine to be built in Spain. It's also why, when in power, the democrats will build endless miles of sidewalks and bike trails until the federal grants run dry.

Remember:

England’s Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said:

“The problem with European Socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money.

Ronald Reagan said:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinctions," and Abraham Lincoln said: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

And that explains, why we all have to get out and vote a

 

Let's "Pray"! And than, "Let's Roll"

Each year, at our Republican' State Convention, we hold a prayer breakfast on Sunday morning. We mend fences, and ask God to forgive the anger that creeps into all conventions, and bless our fellow Wisconsinites (Democrats and independents included) with the wisdom, courage, strength and integrity needed to move Wisconsin forward.

At our past convention, Ron Johnson, offered an opening prayer reflecting on the wisdom in Mathew (“When we're weak, it's than we're strong, because when we’re at our weakest point, it’s than we realize how much we need God’s help and understanding to move Wisconsin forward.

Brad Schimel told about a case he lost, involving a young girl who’d been assaulted. He told of walking out of the court room with her and her family, when she looked up at him and asked: “Was it all worth it? And, where do I go from here? Not knowing what to say, Brad asked if he could take the files he was holding back to his office. He said he went back to his office, shut the door, put the files down, and got down on his knees and prayed. When he looked over to where he’d placed her files, he noticed his research files for one of his victim assistance projects. He said, he got off his knees, went back to the family waiting in the hall, and said: Look around! Ten years ago, there would have been no one here to support you. Five years ago, maybe a few. Three years ago? Maybe half as many. Look how many there are here today. Thanks to your courage, your willingness to fight back, and with God’s help, we’re all going to move forward together.

Scott Walker, as usual, closed our prayer breakfast reading from his family' bible. Before closing the prayer breakfast, he offers everyone else in the room a chance to offer their special prayer. In past years, I remember prayers being offered by Paul Ryan, Mike Gallagher, and John Macco, and I'm sure, with your vote, Leah Vukmir will be joining us next year. The number at breakfast has grown every year. God willing, our democrat' alies will join us next year. We'll buy!   

God Bless the USA! and God help us move Wisconsin Forward! 

Amen

I'm dedicating this site to the five Door County veterans, who were Killed in Action (KIA), during the Vietnam War.

PS: They died because LBJ tried to fight the war from Washington. Let's get rid of Tammy Baldwin.

Lets send Marine Mike Gallagher and mother of an Army Ranger Lea Vukmir to Washington and drain the swamp!
