According to an article on CNN, Ron Johnson says he’s “just a guy from Oshkosh”. There’s the number one reason why we don’t need Ron Johnson as a Senator from Wisconsin. Mr. “I’m worth 38 million dollars” claims to be just like you and me. However; no one worth $38 million is just like you and me.
My next reason is the fact that Ron Johnson didn’t even bother visiting our nation’s capital until he decided to run for Senate. Seriously? You’re now going to make decisions from that capital, but you had no interest in visiting until you decided to run? What a joke!
Next, as the Journal Sentinel has reported, Ron Johnson find that the United States Constitution “is not an easy document”. So, I find his complaint that there are 57 lawyers in the US Senate laughable. Just whom does Johnson think can read the document and how, if he doesn’t find it easy to read, is he going to uphold it?
I was reading an article that Johnson won’t release the information on his lowest paid employees or even the pay ranges of his employees. I have to wonder why not? Is he not paying his employees decent wages? And, if he is paying a livable wage, what’s the big deal? Why not release the wages and shut down the argument?
Finally, from the Journal Sentinel article mentioned above, I have a real problem with this statement: The article states that Johnson supports the Patriotic Act — you know the one that took away a great deal many of our civil liberties. Except, Johnson suddenly has a problem with it: “I certainly share the concerns on civil liberties now that you have Barack Obama in power versus George Bush. I wasn’t overly concerned with George Bush in power.” So, losing your civil liberties is okay when a Republican is in power, but losing those same civil liberties isn’t okay when a Democrat is in power. What a hypocrite! The Patriot Act should be repealed — PERIOD. Any document that makes warrant less searches of our homes legal is bad, no matter who is president. If Johnson can’t figure that out, there’s something seriously wrong with him.
Although, I will have to admit, I’m a bit of a hypocrite myself. I’ve never really cared about owning a gun to protect my life or property, but if Ron Johnson becomes the Wisconsin Senator, I will be standing in line to buy one. I have a feeling I will no longer be safe in my great state of Wisconsin.
