Maybe that is why those of us who actually did show up and talk to the guy realize he in fact is the right candidate for Wisconsin.
I didn't want Constitutionalist's original post to be hijacked by the exact banter he specified, but I also can't let certain arguments go unanswered.
The thread is titled Race for Governor/CCW and therefore pertains to candidates. There is no high jacking involved here.
go to the BBQ and meet with Todd. In fact, after talking to him for so long, I felt like I was taking up too much of his time and not giving anyone else the chance to get their questions answered. In the end, we covered what he'd do for business (has plans to bring in 2 or 3 fortune 100 companies, creating thousands of jobs), gun rights (of course), and even welfare (told me a story about a homeless guy that lost everything, and how we should be helping him, because that could be any of us).
In the end, I enjoyed our conversation, but he didn't win me over outright. I actually went to the BBQ extremely
excited about Mark Todd, and left with a "eh, not what I thought he'd be" attitude.
Maybe you should have asked more questions. that is why he came.
He seemed less than genuine (can't explain, its in the body language and speech). And when I asked about 2A rights, he didn't know much about the CCW permit system
, and just said he's sign it into law, no permit, etc etc. Good stance, but didn't seem to be a true advocate about it.
Because there isn't one. He is in favor of anyone exercising their 2A rights without compromise. His words.
And when Doug says "bled political blood," I believe he's talking about the fact that Todd hasn't actually done
anything to further our cause, just said
he would. And that's
why I brought my tape recorder!
So what has Walker or Nuemann or Lawton or Find done?
Sorry for the long post, but I really wanted to address J.Gleasons statement saying that anyone that met with Mark Todd will see he is the right candidate. I met the guy, not as impressed as I thought I'd be, and I'm still looking into other candidates.
I was referring to those of us who support him.
**As a side note, his website is extremely
vague about his positions (another reason why I felt I needed a voice recorder, to hold him to his word as he defined his actual position with statements other than "I am not for anything unconstitutional." Just another of my 2 cents!
And the other candidates sites are not vague? or even more so then Todds?
