"March For Our Lives" To Paul Ryan's Office Event

After reading this article, several readers asked me if I knew what the March for Our Lives spokesperson meant about taking it directly to Ryan's front door. Did they mean his home or office in Janesville?

UPI Excerpt:
The event is the same day as the national March for Our Lives event in Washington, D.C. Eder said they will carry the call for improved gun control "directly to Paul Ryan's front door" in Janesville, Wis.

Not being affiliated with the event or its organizers, I could not answer their question.

Because, to some folks in Janesville who would like to participate in the event, taking it "directly to Paul Ryan's front door" assuming they mean his home, would be enough to stop them from joining the march. So I looked around the Web to get a clear authoritative answer including asking the event's Twitter account directly. Unfortunately, that was like talking to a brick wall.

Finally I linked to the local Rock Valley Fellowship of Reconciliation Webpage.

March For Our Lives Rally

Saturday, March 24

The Rock Valley Fellowship of Reconciliation is sponsoring a rally in support of the student “March for our Lives” project calling for common sense gun laws and an end to gun violence.

The rally is being held on Saturday, March 24 at 1:00 p.m. at the Roth Amphitheater in Janesville’s Lower Courthouse Park. We plan to March through downtown Janesville and end in front of Congressman Ryan's office on Main Street. We will have a petition to sign and will be taking a picture. The picture and petitions will be sent to Congressman Ryan.

According to the Gazette, the out-of-state group will take the protest to Paul Ryan's house after the March 24th rally.

That's too bad since their story is behind a pay wall, few people will know they intend to do that. They obviously don't know Janesville or Wisconsin backlash politics very well or are part of Ryan's re-election campaign.

The last people protesting at Ryan's house were scorned by Janesville voters and Ryan actually picked up sympathetic voters and won his ward and city.

If these folks really want to bring the change they expect, they should avoid protesting at Ryan's house and instead dedicate themselves for volunteer work to the winner of the Democratic primary in August and help defeat Ryan.

You have their intentions wrong. Ryan's popularity is plummeting and these marches will push it down further. He is toast this time. bye-bye Lyin' Ryan.

To the contrary, these groups want Ryan to take the "lead" in congress on their demands. That means they are friendly to his position and think he only needs some correction. If they're honest.

Sure, he lost some points in the spread over the past year, it's only a matter of perception to regain support. The problem I see is Ryan has plenty of campaign money to afford doing anything he wants including psychological warfare to win public support.

By protesting at Ryan's home, these folks guarantee him another win.
