Please come and help save our democracy!

Please join us Tuesday, January 12th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a meeting of South Central Wisconsin United to Amend. The meeting will be held at the Sequoya Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd, Madison (map). This is THE core issue of our time. Please come meet the group and find your niche in this growing democracy movement!

Also, there will be an informal public hearing at the Capitol on January 21st (North Hearing Room on the 2nd floor of the State Capitol, 10 to noon), which is the 6th anniversary of the horrendous Citizens United decision. This hearing will give Wisconsinites a chance to voice their concerns and express support for real solutions that will get money out of politics and our elections. The first speakers will be Rep. Subeck and Sen. Dave Hansen, who have introduced bills (AJR8/SJR12) calling for a statewide referendum on overturning the 2010 Citizens United ruling. Despite overwhelming bipartisan support to reduce the influence of Big Money in politics, this resolution continues to be denied a public hearing; worse yet, the state legislature recently doubled campaign contribution limits and opened the floodgates for unprecedented amounts of secret, special interest spending in Wisconsin’s elections. The public deserves to be heard. This hearing will give Wisconsinites a chance to voice their concerns and express support for real solutions that will get money out of politics and our elections.

And then, that evening, you’re invited to an Unhappy Birthday Party for Citizens United, 6:30 to 9:30 PM, at the Brocach Irish Pub, 7 W. Main St. on Capitol Square in Madison. Sponsored by South Central Wisconsin United To Amend, it’ll feature Mike Crute of The Devil’s Advocates as MC, Mike McCabe of Blue Jean Nation and John Nichols of The Nation magazine as featured speakers, a couple of other notable speakers (still being confirmed), (soft) classic rock by The Sundogs, a cake, a raffle, networking with fellow advocates of democracy, and the kind of wake that the Irish are famous for. We’re hoping that democracy will sit up in its coffin and loudly proclaim “Hey! I’m not dead yet!”

Meet the group and help stand up for what’s right!

Please join us Tuesday, December 8th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a meeting of South Central Wisconsin United to Amend. The meeting will be held at the Sequoya Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd, Madison (map). This is THE core issue of our time. Please come meet the group and find your niche in this growing democracy movement!

As you may know, three bad government bills are awaiting the Governor’s signature. Despite the fact that 97% of Americans are very concerned about the corruption in our government and want something done about it, the majority of Wisconsin’s politicians continue to ignore their constituents, while attempting to institutionalize their own corrupt behavior. In this onslaught, they have:

  • doubled contribution limits
  • okayed coordination with issue-advocacy groups
  • eliminated disclosure of contributor’s employers
  • eliminated the Government Accountability Board (GAB)
  • eliminated John Doe criminal investigations into political malfeasance

Had enough yet? It’s time to stand up for what’s right!

Meet us at Sequoya Library Tuesday Evening!

Please join us Tuesday, November 10th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a meeting of South Central Wisconsin United to Amend. The meeting will be held at the Sequoya Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd, Madison (map). This is THE core issue of our time. Please come meet the group and find your niche in this growing democracy movement!

Please contact your representatives and tell them you want to see this issue put on a statewide ballot and ask that they co-sponsor AJR8 and SJR12. Finally, please send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Click HERE to see some sample letters. Here are a few talking points:

  • The enormous sums of campaign cash is nothing more than legalized bribery.
  • The huge corporations that are corrupting our political system have usurped the rights of natural people leaving citizens with little influence over the future of our country.
  • A recent poll shows that 97% of Americans are very concerned about the corruption in Congress and want something done about it. If lawmakers stand with the rest of Americans, they can get off the fundraising treadmill and regain control over their own political destiny.

Meet us at Lakeview Library Tuesday Evening!

Please join us Tuesday, October 27th, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a meeting of South Central Wisconsin United to Amend. The meeting will be held at the Lakeview Library, 2845 North Sherman Avenue, Madison (map). This is THE core issue of our time. Please come meet the group and find your niche in this growing democracy movement!

A series of bad-government bills have been introduced into our state legislature, which would enable more and more corruption in Wisconsin. Legalized bribery via campaign donations would be easier than ever. Other proposed bills would gut the GAB, which would aid in avoiding any repercussions for bad behavior. We must stand up and fight for what is right!  Please call, write, email and meet with any and all representatives you possibly can. For some background information, please read articles HERE and HERE.
