    I was in the parking lot at the Watertown Walmart loading up and getting ready to go in when I saw Dave's well signed SUV with him getting in it. Went over and spoke with him and found out he is very supportive of open carry and his website states he "supports concealed carry for all citizens". He is an NRA Life Member. Conservative on all issues.

    I have no problem supporting Dave Westlake. I seen an interview on TV about him when he first came up with his orange shirt idea. I think he is an excellent candidate.

    So escaped felons are able to enjoy their ill-gotten freedom just a little longer by blending in with a crowd for a few minutesbefore they get rounded up again?

    He wears a blaze orange shirt so he stands out in the crowd. This way if you want to speak with him you will always know which person he is.

    He does this a little tongue in cheek. He hands out orange T-Shirts that say "I am Dave Westlake". He gave me one yesterday.

    That's hilarious!

    On paper he seems like a good guy, but until I know more than what he puts out there i will have to hold my judgment.

    Most of you guys are probably too young to remember Bill Proxmire,

    He was a democrat, But he spent his campaign time at any festival anywhere he could find, the WI state fair was a great venue for him.
    He was commonly seen with a bratwurst in one hand, and a beer in the other.

    He got out there and tried to show the voters that he was a regular old slob just like them, and it worked. He was able to garner over 70% of the vote by using the "I am a poor slob just like you" tactics when campaigning. We need more people like him with views that match our own.

    Unlike the democrats of today, he fought against pork-barrel spending, and is most noted for his "Golden Fleece" awards

    Feingold is that rare liberal Dem that votes pro-2A.
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Yup, I believe it is because he listeedn to his constitunts instead of pursuing his own agenda. If he was Anti-2A, he would probably not be in office for too long.

    No, I think he was pro- 2nd Amendment even while he was a state senator representing a liberal Madison area district. Jon "Sly" Sylvester, who is on Madison radio, is another rare pro-gun liberal. Actually they may not be all that rare, since I know several others personally who are very pro gun.
