The Dawn of a New Era: "Rock The First" For a Clean Slate!
Opportunity knocks like never before for voters to elect a brand new representative in the First Congressional District of Wisconsin.
That one-time golden opportunity arrives on Fall Primary Tuesday in Wisconsin - August 9, 2016. Mark your calendars.
Here's the deal. Plan to take action on Primary Tuesday by going to your voting ward/precinct station and cast a vote for Paul Nehlen on the Republican primary side of the partisan ballot. That's it!
Who's Paul Nehlen? So far he seems like a gutsy legitimate guy with a serious handle on current politics. I agree with him on a couple issues, most notably the TPP, but I don't agree with him in several other areas. Like most of us however, he also feels deeply betrayed by his representative in Congress.
But, more to the point for our purpose, none of that matters right now. What really matters is, Paul Ryan is facing a serious challenger in a primary for the republican nomination for House Representative of the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin. If Nehlen wins the primary, Ryan's name will not appear on the ballot in November's General Election.
Obviously, the fallout from that will be tremendous, but this won't be a cakewalk for Nehlen because the right-wing heavens and corporate hells are about to open up on him like a locked and loaded C-130 flying fortress. Many of us in Wisconsin know exactly what that means. We can even expect the GOP to run fake candidates on the democratic side. The establishment borg is super-strong. The stakes are very high. It will be in the truest sense, a David versus Goliath contest.
But most importantly IF Nehlen wins, it will be the dawn of a new era for our congressional house district. Imagine for the first time in nearly twenty years, voters will have a selection of several fresh-faced honest candidates eager to serve with a passion for the job. It will be a clean slate. After the August primary, other party nominees for the 1st CD will have the chance to compete for the job and debate each other on a level playing field ...and may the best man (or woman) win.
And IF Paul Ryan loses, there is no need to worry about him. He'll make millions more doing the same job lobbying in DC he always does representing billionaires and corporations - except he will no longer be on the taxpayers payroll.
Just to be clear, "Rock The First" is not a partisan, candidate or party sloganeered promotion. There is no coordination whatsoever between myself and any of the parties or declared candidates for the 1st CD. It doesn't matter to me if you're a republican, democrat, progressive, independent, liberal, conservative or tea party, we'll all get another chance to elect a new representative in November. There is no hidden agenda or endorsement to follow. But we must rock the First Congressional District Of Wisconsin on August 9th - first.
It's simple. #RockTheFirst is a bottom-up grassroots citizen-run public service message to bring awareness to area voters about the once-in-a-lifetime chance we have to empower ourselves on August 9th and finally remove a deeply entrenched, capital over labor, profits over people, corporate-shill, district derelict, billionaire-owned congressman actor with a ton of bad ideas - from our house seat.
Helping to usher in a clean slate for the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin should be Job One. Let's Rock The First on August 9th!
