The people our district, our state, and our nation must make a fundamental decision. Do we fight for an agenda that creates jobs, raises wages and protects the environment? Or do we continue to react to the side show of minor issues designed to distract and divide us, while we continue to lose our freedoms, our money, and most importantly our time here on Earth? This presents the great moral issue of our time. It is no great secret that the wealthiest individuals silently control our society, either directly or through legislators and judges whom are financially beholden to them. Ask yourself, "Do you want to be part of a game of Monopoly, where eventually just one wealthy individual controls the board?" We're almost there. For most of us it's gradually getting harder every day just to get by.
Your freedom of speech shouldn't mean the freedom to buy our politicians. Many of our politicians have been corrupted by campaign contributions in exchange for their political influence. The result - you have less money and a lousier life because the wealthiest are getting all the monetary breaks, while the average person fights for financial crumbs. It's part of their wedge issue divide and conquer strategy.
I'm Scott Michalak, a Democrat running for Wisconsin's 38th Assembly District. If we're going to win and start changing our state, I will need your time, financial support, and your vote. Together, we can take back Wisconsin, and it starts with this election.
