Complete failure may be a better statement regarding the spending of well over $500,000 of your tax dollars for an instructional method used in the La Crosse school district. ACT results of recent test show La Crosse among the lowest of the area and below the state average. (State avg 20.0, LaCrosse 19.8) La Crosse Tribune 1-15-16.
Superintendent Randy Nelson’s guest view of 3-4-14 noted that they had been spending money to incorporate Common Core for 4 years and spent nearly $500,000. Currently that’s 2 more years and dollars for them to figure out this program is not only wasteful but a failure for students and teachers. We, Citizens for Responsible Government, protested at that time by holding seminars and writing letters but were not able to convince the school board we could see this was a disaster in the making.

The Wisconsin legislature is debating a bill that will finally put an end to the practice of treating law-abiding citizens who carry firearms like criminals.
As a Christian, father, and husband who lives his life according to the Ten Commandments and the Holy Bible, it has always bothered me that my government treats me like a criminal when it comes to my possession of a firearm for the defense of myself and my family. Today, when I drop off or pick up my kids from school, if I forget to disarm and place my firearm in a vehicle safe, the moment I step foot onto school property I am committing a felony. How does that make sense to anyone who isn’t living in a world of unicorns and fairy dust? I’m a God-fearing, law-abiding, upstanding citizen and then suddenly transformed into a criminal just for taking that one, extra step onto a school property?
I started volunteering at the La Crosse office of Americans for Prosperity last year and I attended their first class of the Grassroots Leadership Academy.
What I like most about AFP are the people and their dedication to restoring Liberty in America. Everyone I have met through AFP, whether they are high level executives, state directors, local field directors, or just grassroots volunteers; everyone has a level of Patriotism and love of Liberty that is a joy to be around. Don't ever let liberal/progressive/Marxists make you feel like you are alone and isolated for believing in the founding principles of our country and the conservative, Christian ideas that make America great. This nation is full of Patriotic Americans who go about raising their families, attending their churches and performing their jobs without making any noise about it.
