To the Editor:
Are Republicans following blindly like sheep to the slaughter?
We live in a primarily Republican part of the state.
When I see the number of yard signs for Michels for governor I wonder how many people are supporting the Republican Party candidate because of his party affiliation or his personal values.
The Michels foundation has donated $20,000 to the Veritas Society. The Veritas Society website states: “Utilizing our advanced Veritas Society digital technology, otherwise known as ‘Polygonning’ we identify and capture the cell phone IDs of women that are coming and going from Planned Parenthood and similar locations.”
If he invested $20,000 as a private citizen to invade and exploit people’s privacy by capturing cell phone IDs, whose privacy will he exploit as governor?
He claims to be an outsider, and his experience in business qualifies him to lead Wisconsin’s government. There are two problems with his logic. First, the government is not a business, it’s a service and should be managed as such. Secondly, he is not a self- made billionaire; he inherited a billion dollar business.
Look at a candidate’s values and if he will protect or intrude on your personal rights.
Don’t follow blindly!
