Below is the speech I gave tonight at the Green Bay, Wisc. Tea Party event. I thought it went quite well. I got all positive comments and no negative ones. I saw light bulbs go on...
...when I pointed out that it's not right to support Israel with other people's money. The [ ] of the group came up to me afterward and said she'd have to reexamine her position.
The guys from our group thought I was pretty hard-hitting, buy my wife knew better. She thought I was tame. Being a right-wing Christian, I have a pretty good idea how they're thinking and figured I had a good way to reach them, knowing what reached me.
I’m Teno Groppi from the Fox Valley Ron Paul/Campaign for Liberty Meetup group. I’ve been active in alternative politics for almost 30 years, having been the original 6th district rep. for the Constitution Party, a JBS chapter leader, and currently on the board of directors for the Wisconsin Gun Owners, WI’s only no-compromise gun rights organization. I also run a creation science ministry called Genesis Evidence Ministry.

In previous years, Republicans have worked the parade route, but this year they will not be allowed to take part. The parade is organized by local unions, which said Wisconsin Republicans "have openly attacked worker's rights."
Wisconsin politics — which hasn't been pretty of late — has made its way into a local Labor Day parade. The organizers of the Wausau Labor Day parade announced they would not let Republican lawmakers take part in the Sept. 5 display. The parade is organized by 30 local unions.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:
For those that listen to Charlie on WTMJ - I like hearing the stories he brings up and often enjoy his insight into them. But I don't understand why Ron Paul is ignored by even conservative media. See below email. Maybe if many of us email Charlie asking him to cover Ron Paul, Charlie will cover him. Or maybe this is a lost cause?
