February 2017 update

Hello friends and fellow supporters of democracy

We wanted to let you know first and foremost, that the next meeting of the Democratic Party of Grant County will be on Thursday, February 8th beginning at 6 p.m.  Our meeting will take place at Wisconsin Bank & Trusts's community room located on the lower west side of the bank building.  The address is 10 Keystone Parkway which is right on Bus. Hwy 151 in Platteville, right by Menards.  All who are able, are encouraged to attend.

Also we wish to inform you of an amazing tool which has been created to help people push back against the Trump administration's unhinged extremism.  People have been asking us what they can do to help preserve America and democracy in these dangerous times and many of the answers lie here:

Trump set a record with the lowest approval rating of any new American President when he took office.  After just one week, his approval ratings dropped a staggering points (down from 32) meaning he immediately lost a quarter of what support he had, which was only the most conservative of citizens to begin with.  Noted and distinguished Republicans across the country are attacking Trump's flawed and disastrous ideas.  Lindsay Granham, John McCain, Paul Ryan, Jim Sensenbrenner and now even Charles Koch of the Tea Party and Americans for Prosperity are firing off shots at Trump.

We should also mention another important piece of news which is the striking down of the unconstitutional gerrymandering which has affected voters all across Wisconsin.  It seems likely that Wisconsin may well again have free and fair elections in the future.  This is a great article about it: 

We have our work cut out for us to preserve America and it's way of life.  There is much to do and we certainly encourage everyone to step up to the plate and find out what they can do to help.  People are organizing everywhere in defense of democracy, liberty and freedom.

And along those lines we should mention that the Berniecrats are still very much in the fight with us.  The first Grant County meeting of the Bernie Sanders' organization, Our Wisconsin Revolution will be held on February 19th from 5 - 7 pm at Berry Yo which is located at 305 Bus. Hwy 151 in Platteville.  There will be a large crowd there so please RSVP if you are planning to attend, you can do so by following this link:

Thank you all and remain strong, working together we can create a better, brighter tomorrow.
