Prepare for the August 14th Primary

If you haven’t started thinking about (or even studying for) the August 14th Primary election, you might be too late! In La Crosse County alone, because of the two Assembly Districts, there will be 10 ballots but in nearby Monroe County with two Congressional Districts and three Assembly Districts, there will be 20 ballots. These numbers are justified by each Assembly District has a ballot for each of the five recognized political parties and then when an Assembly District is split between two Congressional Districts there is another set of ballots.

I have been lightly amused by some historical facts concerning the nomination to fill the seat of Supreme Court Justice Kennedy. Go back and recall the campaign to oppose Robert Bork; an effort so successful that a new word came into the lexicon. It has been used in describing other political arenas wherein favored candidates did not prevail. Such a person is said to have been 'Borked'.

As I write this, it is the eve of our Independence Day Holiday so it seems to be an exceptionally fitting time for this article. On Saturday we held our first annual CouleeConservatives Day with the Loggers. If you follow our Facebook page you might have seen the live videos we did during the event to say 'hi' to our conservative candidates.

The Coming Political Discord

I continue to watch with fascination the news coverage about the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. There is so much political intrigue and rhetoric flying around on the airwaves about this issue and for good reason. This will be another crucial moment in the history of our nation. For many, many years the Supreme Court has been the final word on all things regarding the U.S. Constitution. In our recent history of about the last 50-years, Progressives have positioned themselves into controlling most of the court system including the Supreme Court.
