As a sportsman and patriot, I support the 2nd Amendment and responsibly exercise my right. Economically, I am conservative and only invest my time and money in things I know will have a return on investment. Socially, I am libertarian. I believe one should let people live their own lives. 

I also am conservative in my environmental politics. I do not leave anything behind in the woods that would leave it less pristine than I found it. I practice medicine and trust in good science. I am alarmed by climate destabilization and the denial of human involvement in accelerating it.

Political ideology promotes a myth that politics are complicated. We have artificial lines indicating the list of things we must believe if we identify with either political party. We are dangerously divided as a country.

If you let go of party ideology, what are we actually divided about? I am against elite corporate wealth where they can write their own rules. Both parties are influenced or bought by it.

Mike McCabe has something better to offer Wisconsin than the President Donald Trump and Gov. Scott Walker juggernaut of special corporate interests. “Principle over Party” is McCabe's campaign slogan for governor. Let's get Wisconsin back on track with equal opportunity for prosperity for all who are willing to work hard.
