Wisconsin: Quotations from Republican State Senator Dale Schultz

Dale chose not to run again last fall. Too bad; he was the last sane Republican in Wisconsin. Since leaving office, he's had a few choice things to say about the Walker administration. I'd absolutely love to see Dale run for governor as a Republican.


We are now literally dismantling the state government, and people need to think long and hard about what they want for a future in our state,

Its just, I think, sad when a political party my political party has so lost faith in its ideas that its pouring all of its energy into election mechanics. And again, Im a guy who understands and appreciates what we should be doing in order to make sure every vote counts, every vote is legitimate. But that fact is, it ought to be abundantly clear to everybody in this state that there is no massive voter fraud. The only thing that we do have in this state is we have long lines of people who want to vote. And it seems to me that we should be doing everything we can to make it easier, to help these people get their votes counted. And that we should be pitching as political parties our ideas for improving things in the future, rather than mucking around in the mechanics and making it more confrontational at the voting sites and trying to suppress the vote. It is all predicated on some belief there is a massive fraud or irregularities, something my colleagues have been hot on the trail for three years and have failed miserably at demonstrating.

The K-12 system in the last few years has laid off 3,000 personnel, and it looks to me like thats going to accelerate. Out my way, I would not be shocked if a huge percentage of school districts wind up going to referendum to have the privilege of raising their own property tax because the state has walked away from its principal responsibility of providing for a free, appropriate and near equal education for everybody.

Heres how I see the enemy. The enemy is poverty in a country and a state that has no business having kids and families go to sleep hungry at night or in their cars. The enemy is those who encourage an undereducated citizenry. Education is the key to helping give people a hand up and a better future.

No wonder he had to leave the legislature. No room for sanity there.
