  •  I think that is the problem. (0+ / 0-)

    But, it is interesting to learn something new. The libraries in Wisconsin do have the information online. But it is not something that is going to be front page news, exactly. I am reading up on venture capital because I realized my gut instinct was to be against the idea because Walker was for it. Then, I thought, well, that is really the problem, for example, with the train, people were against that because it was Obama's idea.  I don't mean that everyone who was against high speed rail had a bad argument, just that the average voter, if you asked them, "Don't you like the idea of the train?" they would say something like, "yes, I do, but not this plan, there is no transportation from the station to your door." or " the state will have to pick up the maintenance costs", not realizing that the state also pays for roads, etc. etc.

    So, that is why I started to read up on venture capital, because I thought it wasn't good to go against the idea, just because Walker was for it.

    You are completely correct that the business lobbyists are way, way ahead of me, average citizen from a non finance background. But my objective is to find out the "truth" as much as I can, so when I hear this issue brought up, I can interpret the honesty, knowledge, etc. of the candidates.
