Dan Soshnik: Ron Johnson doesn't deserve 6 more years

From the COLLECTION: 45 letters from our readers, sounding off on gun safety and more series

The billionaires band is back together. After promising not to run again, career politician Ron Johnson is back running commercials ad nauseam on regular TV and streaming services. He's back for Round 3.

We all ought to be sick of him by the end of summer. Somebody should tell him inflation isn't a tax and what causes it. Republicans want to use that like they did with Carter after Nixon and Ford, two of the most corrupt presidents in history.

Johnson doesn't give a darn about the elderly. If he did he wouldn't want to defund the ACA and Medicare, and he calls Social Security a Ponzi scheme. (Somebody should explain what that is to him too.) I believe he will try to open up northern Wisconsin to more mining and possibly vote to open up the Great Lakes to energy exploration. If he really was concerned about small business, he wouldn't support breaks for big business and people that don't need tax breaks like his billionaire friends.

Johnson also refused to condemn Trump inciting the insurrectionists on Jan 6. Silence is condoning. By his actions and by his votes Johnson has demonstrated that he can't be trusted to do what's best for the people in Wisconsin. Career politician Ron Johnson doesn't deserve six more years.

"More Catholic” was the phrase used in the headline in Monday’s Wisconsin State Journal article to describe the changes underway at Saint Maria Goretti Parish and School in Madison. A more accurate phrase might be the one used in the story: a “traditionalist approach.”

A letter to the editor in Monday's State Journal concludes that vileness is the root cause of violence. It argued that something was lacking spiritually in those who commit mass shootings. I contended that removing weapons will not solve the problem. It starts out good, even though removing weapons would help a lot.

Referring to front-page article "Renovations underway for TPC Wisconsin" in Tuesday's Wisconsin State Journal, I wonder what the PGA Tour players will think about having to play with the F-35 fighter jets taking off and landing in close proximity?

As we Americans prepare to celebrate the founding of our nation, remember that the Declaration of Independence states, “That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

On Jan. 6, 2021, a desperate Donald Trump, who clearly lost the 2020 presidential election, planned and publicly urged a violent mob to upend the election results and keep him in office. His actions were criminal, and he should be prosecuted as soon as possible for inciting the Jan. 6 riot (which he dismissed as a visit).
