In our Democratic Republic, we have set it up where there are two major parties(Democrats and Republicans) and they run the show.
The Wisconsin Democratic Party used to have control over the Legislative and Executive offices in Wisconsin, but now(thanks to a few bad election cycles), have zero relevance within our state.
While there is alot of "It's not my fault" the last few years, it does not take a rocket scientist to understand why they keep losing.
Democrat Myron Buchholz has decided to throw his hat into the ring, and go up against Congressman Ron Kind in the primary election. As a condition of running successfully, most politicians need to get their hands on a Voter Activation Network(the VAN). The VAN, in my experience, is pretty out of date but a useful tool.
The problem is, as useful as a tool as the VAN is, Mr. Buchholz will never know. See the State Democratic Party, of which Mr. Buchhholz is a member, refuses to sell the VAN to him. Seems because he is primarying an established Democrat. he must be treated as an annoyance and an outsider.
As we have noted numerous times here at CogDis, you are either all in with the Democrats or all out!
Here is the email that Mr. Buchholz received from Brita Olson:
Thank you for contacting us regarding a purchase of the Wisconsin voter file. Unfortunately, at this time, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin cannot grant access to the Buchholz campaign. It is our practice that we do not sell access to challengers of Democratic representatives in good standing.
Email Ms. Olson and tell her to let Democracy rule and allow any Dem who wants to run to purchase the VAN. The party should NOT be picking winners and losers....

If you have had enough of Ron Kind fast track passing yet another free trade/job killing agreement, feel free to help Mr. Buchholz out!
