Upcoming Book Discussions

Wed Sept 30th - 5:30pm
Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater

Our book for September, Conscience of a Conservative, reignited the American conservative movement and made Barry Goldwater a political star. It influenced countless conservatives in the United States, and helped lay the foundation for the Reagan Revolution in 1980. It covers topics such as education, labor unions and policies, civil rights, agricultural policy and farm subsidies, social welfare programs, and income taxation. This significant book lays out the conservative position both politically and economically that would come to dominate the Conservative Movement in American. Join us on the 30th to discuss how this book written 50 years ago still impacts Conservative politics today. You do not need to have read the book to attend the meeting.

HONEST and ACCURATE Elections are a vital part of our republic

Honest and alert ELECTION WORKERS are a key to fair elections.
Can you serve as an election worker in 2016?

* Four elections in 2016, all on Tuesdays
* You work from 6:30 AM to 9:00 PM
* One-hour training class
* You have the satisfaction of a job well done!

The Republican Party of Milwaukee County can nominate you to be a Republican election worker in your community.

Clinton Cash Book Discussion on Wed Sep 2

Clinton Cash book coverstarting at 5:30pm

Over the course of the past few years, Hillary Clinton has proven that she is untrustworthy. Her favorability ratings continue to shrink across the country, and here in Wisconsin, Democrats have started to support Bernie Sanders as Hillary has failed to excite her own base.

Join us on September 2nd as we discuss one of the many plagues that has slowed down Hillary this summer. In Clinton Cash, author Peter Schweizer digs into donations received by the Clinton foundation by foreign entities. We’ll talk about how we cannot afford to have Hillary Clinton lead our country, and what we can do now to make sure Wisconsin turns red in 2016. We’ll also discuss our next books for September, October, and November, so come prepared with some ideas!

Drinks and light snacks will be provided.

Multitude of local authorities soak Illinois homeowners in taxes

Mary Beth Jachec lives in a three-bedroom house in Wauconda, a village of 14,000 in Illinois, 45 miles northwest of Chicago. Her semi-detached brick home is unassuming. Her tax bills are not.

The 53-year-old insurance manager gets a real estate tax bill for 20 different local government authorities and a total payout of about $7,000 in 2014. They include the Village of Wauconda, the Wauconda Park District, the Township of Wauconda, the Forest Preserve, the Wauconda Area Public Library District, and the Wauconda Fire Protection District.

Then there is Wauconda Road and Bridge, not to be confused with Road and Bridge, Wauconda Gravel, or with Wauconda Special Road Improvement and Gravel unit – all three of which have imposed separate taxes on her and the village’s other homeowners.

Scott Walker: Driving liberals insane simply by solving problems

I like this guy.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker really drives liberals crazy. He’s obviously far from alone in that category, of course. Just about any high-profile person who frequently and boldly speaks the truth drives liberals crazy.

But Gov. Walker drives them crazy without really saying all that much. He drives them crazy with action – specifically by applying solutions that liberals insist cannot and should not be applied.
