Protecting The Constitution?

Dear Editor,

RFK Jr. left the Democratic Party.  He is running as an Independent, putting a rubber stamp on radical change in the party his father and uncle gave their lives to serving.  Many of you, like me, likely cried streams studying their assassinations, especially that of JFK who campaigned in Dodgeville in 1960.  He inspired the nation to great things like landing on the Moon, civil rights, and the Peace Corps.  His death wounded the nation's heart and all of us.    

RFK Jr. told Jesse Watters he had virtually no chance of winning the Democrat nomination because DNC rules are essentially rigged.  Other candidates have said likewise previously.  It's worth asking how devoted to democracy and the Constitution the Democrat Party is today.  No one who loves something would fundamentally change it but the Democrat Party wants to fundamentally change America.     

Many Democrat leaders like Senator Chuck Schumer show contempt for the cornerstone of civil society, freedom of speech. Without it fascism is certain.  Consider Jim Bach's reply to me.  He wants the Chronicle to censor me.   Bach's view is common among Democrats today and it threatens the Constitution.  It's un-American.  Remember when a liberal was a person who fought for everyone's right to speak?

To a haughty mind like Dial's, my "ideas are crazy".  That's just a thinly veiled personal attack.

To Steve Pieroni,  public court docs show Patrick Madden filed for divorce from Janet Protaciewicz just months into the marriage, irrefutable evidence something big bothered him.  She was immediately ordered out of the house.  He told his son Michael physical abuse was the reason.  Michael lived in the house 24/7.  He did a taped interview with WSAU Wausau.  He and another eye witness, Jon Ehr, a Democrat, are on record.  She was challenged to a public interview.  She refused.  They are credible witnesses and there are others.  The divorce lasted as long as the marriage because of many ridiculous claims she kept coming up with that the divorce judge dismissed, like demanding half his estate.  That goes to her character.      

Mr. Pieroni, my point is democracy that is most accountable to the people is strongest.  We the people don't have any say in judging Protaciewicz for 10 years.  Todd Novak has been held accountable to the people 3 times every 2 years in a mostly blue district. "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time."  Abe Lincoln's timeless and true wisdom.        

To Tom Osting, I was outraged by the Jan. 6 riot.  Democrats have had alternate electors too like in Hawaii 1960.  You neglected to listen to Democrat Alan Derschowitz, the foremost Constitutional scholar, who represented Al Gore in the 2000 election.  He said 15AUG23, "We challenged the election, and we did much of the things that are being done today and people praised us.  I wrote a bestselling book called 'Supreme Injustice.  Now they're (Democrats) making it a crime." (referring to the GA charges against Trump)  Democrats have already done everything they accuse Republicans of doing.  Hypocrisy squared!

Character matters.  Dan Kelly ran an ethical campaign.  Protasiewicz ran like an unethical politician with character unworthy of a justice.  I cited facts and common sense about democracy.  What we have witnessed in past weeks letters are perfect examples of the Democrat Party - bluster, empty denials, free speech attack, and even character assassination.  They are perpetually in denial and not even Egyptian.  Hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide are paying the price of Democrat leadership now.  This is my opinion.  I stand by it.  The Constitution is dead if I am censored like many Democrats want.
