Green Team Hits the Streets

A 10-strong contingent of the Lake Winnebago Green Party arrived today, calling themselves a "Rally for Real Democracy." They are standing outside of the hall on Main Street holding signs to voice their general discontent with Gov. Jim Doyle and the current state of politics in Wisconsin.

Some of the signs hoisted read, "WITH DEMS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS REPUBLICANS?" and "STOP DOYLE'S GRAFT TAX." Demonstraters voiced their concerns to passerbys on issues they classified as unfair tuition increases, disgraceful treatment of students and minimum wage pre-emption.

Said one participant, "We're tired of the established parties giving us the lesser of two evils."
