    Can you point me to an arricle or interview on: your stance on environment? animal rights issues? (I notice in comments a kind soul who asks about factory farming and would also like to know? Women’s rights? I like what I have read so far online regarding your beliefs and pending information received on the above, I plan to vote for you!

    Wow you are the only candidate who mentions the Military, Vets and their families. Thank you! Where do you stand on the WI National Guard being deployed to Afghanistan after 17 expensive years of futility and a lack of a decent government policy for which our children are paying? How will you help bring our boys home?

    Did you see the November REASON magazine? Wisconsin schools are ranked 45th for quality and 43rd for efficiency among the states. Then, the subtitle to an article: “A Wisconsin town is spending billions, seizing homes, and breaking state law to lure a Taiwanese company.” Good ammo for your campaign against two culprits.

    Many of us would like to know where you stand on the second amendment? As written, eliminate or shall not be infringed with infringements.

    Dear Candidate;

    I would like to know, please, what is your policy, if you have one, on the new epidemic of untreated pain?

    I am a voter. I vote every year, in every election. This upcoming November election is crucial to me as my very health, perhaps my life, is at stake. Every day I hear horror stories of forced tapers from fellow pain sufferers. I need to know which candidates I can count on to, at the very least, not actively seek to harm me, and even better, work to protect me and others like me.

    I am a pain patient. I am also taking prescription medication derived from or based on the poppy plant. Medication like this has been used for this purpose for at least fifty centuries. This medication has enabled me to live a meaningful life and take care of my family. I understand dependence and it exists with many medications, especially anti-seizure and anti-depressant medication. I live with dependence, which is different than addiction, because it is better than the alternative of suffering without end.

    I have already tried every single alternative that is reasonable. New “alternatives” such as “pain acceptance” are examples of unreasonable ones. Cannabis, since it is not currently legal, is also not an option. If it does become available then yes it should be added to the list of things I can try. But that does not mean that tried and true thousands of years old medications should be discarded as a result. I am for more alternatives, not less. And I am also for less “war on drugs”, ANY drugs.

    I understand that many people are taking illegal drugs, or legal drugs illegally and I feel bad for them. While I do my part to lock my pills up and submit to urine tests to prove I am taking them, I also encourage addicts to take responsibility for their own addiction as THAT would go further towards their recovery than taking medicine away from me. I also approve of funding treatment centers to help them towards that end. Plus, the short sighted targeting of pills that once became available through “leftovers” from surgeries or dental work, now no longer exists and they are seeking dangerous street drugs, laced with fentanyl, that are killing them in increasing numbers. So the plan is backfiring. The “opiod” hysteria is harming the very people it is pretending to help.

    And while addiction affects many people in WI, not one of us is immune from pain. Chances are very high that you will in the course of your lifetime, need pharmaceutical grade pain relief. Even if you don’t develop a painful disease or suffer a life altering accident, chances are you may need surgery. Hospitals are already postponing surgeries due to pain medicine shortages, and the DEA is proposing cuts to the supply of those medicines that will make this problem WORSE.


    So, if you can answer my question as to what, if any, policy your candidate has towards the epidemic of undertreated pain we are now in, that would be great. Please keep in mind I have already addressed why cannabis and alternative treatments are non-responses. Why cant we treat addiction AND pain?

    Hi. My name is Andrew. I am a new convert to the Libertarian party and I was wondering your stance on gun control in the state of Wisconsin?

    Hello!


    My name is Mary Dougherty and I’m president of the Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network a coalition of grassroots groups working to protect their communities from factory farm pollution and I have a question — will you, as the Libertarian candidate for Governor, support a state-wide moratorium on new and expanding factory farm permits? A moratorium is a common-sense measure that will allow our elected officials in Madison to research the myriad of issues related to the proliferation of factory farms across our rural landscape and pass regulations that protect public health and safety.


    We have over 50 co-sponsors, 14 towns and cities have passed resolutions in support of a moratorium, and over 800 citizens have signed a petition calling for a moratorium. We’ve developed a position statement that outlines our rationale for a factory farm moratorium as well as the conditions for lifting the moratorium.


    Wisconsin citizens deserve more protection from their elected officials and it’s time to put citizens’ rights before the rights of Big Ag and their factory farms. Governor Walker’s ‘open for business’ mantra has had devastating impacts for rural citizens and family farmers in Wisconsin. They are in the cross-hairs of an expanding and increasingly powerful large-scale agricultural industry and examples of that harm continue to mount across Wisconsin:


    - Wisconsin is losing family dairy farmers at an alarming rate.

    -
    The 2016 Legislative Audit Bureau report highlighted the DNR’s lack of oversight and enforcement.

    - Grassland Dairy dumped approximately 75 family farmers in April 2017.

    -
    While the DNR designed a program to provide drinking water to citizens with manure-tainted wells in April 2017, I’m not aware of any water distributed to impacted private well users.

    - Nearly one-third of CAFOs in Wisconsin are operating with expired permits.

    -
    Water contamination in La Crosse County prompted DNR spokesman Jim Dick to state, “The DNR doesn’t have a policy regarding notifying municipalities or private well owners in the vicinity when a CAFO violates a permit.”

    - In May 2018, the EPA began a large-scale project in Juneau County They are testing water for pollution and drilling wells near Wysocki’s Central Sands Dairy factory farm. In addition, Juneau County Health Department officials tested one-hundred wells in Armenia (home of Central Sands Daory factory farm), with more than 40 percent found to have nitrate levels exceeding the 10 milligrams per liter standard set by the EPA.

    -
    Pay to Play is the theme song of Walker’s WI and the recent Supreme Court decision that paves the way for Wysocki’s Golden Sands factory farm in Wood County is yet another example. Wysocki family members and other owners of the Wysocki Family of Companies contributed about $92,500 between January 2010 and December 2017 to legislative and statewide candidates and fundraising committees.


    In spite of these issues, the DNR continues to permit new and expanding Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) across the state and enough is enough. It’s time for our elected officials to take a look at the consequences of the Livestock Siting Law (which provided regulatory certainty to Big Ag and took away a community’s right to say NO to a factory farm) and come up with solutions that work for everyone, not just industrial agriculture and factory farm owners.


    Wisconsin citizens are eager to engage with and elect candidates who will advocate for our right to clean water, clean air, and to be safe in our homes. As the Democratic candidate for Governor, your support of a factory farm moratorium will provide important leadership for members of the Senate and Assembly as they begin the 2019 session and will signal your support for Wisconsin citizen’s health and safety.


    Please provide your response by August 6th. Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network intends to issue a press release with your response (as well as the other candidates responses) on August 8th.


    Please get in touch if you have any questions,

    Mary Dougherty

    Hello Phil,


    My name is James Strebe and I write for the Badger Herald. The Herald is going to be running an article previewing the upcoming gubernatorial election and its implications, and I was hoping that your campaign could make some time to tell us what makes you stand out as a candidate.


    Our reader base is mostly college students, so along with your general policy goals, it would be great if you could focus on the campaign’s plans for higher education in Wisconsin.


    Please reach out to me if you are interested so that we can arrange a time to talk. If possible, a phone interview would be preferable to a written statement. I am most available on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I can make time on another date if needed. I plan on submitting my story to my editor on Friday night.


    Thanks,

    James

    You lie. The Libertarian Party is a perfect fir for you. Ha!! Way back in 2014, you ran as an independent. Your just hitching your coattails to any one silly enough to back you.

    I could use at lot of help with my getting signatures real bad. I need some one to contact me please
  • Jenny Tryba
    I support having a libertarian in office and wish to see this man succeed , and I offer this with that in mind, this website is awful. Whatever this is to you, if it’s just part of working with Nation Builder I don’t know, but it hard to find and hard to navigate. The header is ridiculously huge and takes away from the actual articles. The colors are also really hard on the eyes, I have trouble making out the text and it makes my eyes water after a few minutes. I would seriously seriously consider another website, it should be pretty much be where people land when they google Phil Anderson.

    Mr. Anderson,
    How can Libertarian politics be separated from laissez faire (and therefore pro-Koch Brothers Business) Corporate politics? I voted for you and am hoping to become better educated on the Libertarian cause. Please recommend some reading, if willing/ able.


    Thank you!

    I noticed that you filled out the political courage test of votesmart and I was wondering exactly where you stood on the issue of transgender rights.
  • Jessy Humke
    I am looking through the canidates for the election, and would like to know where you stand on a few things.

    First, what do you think about legalizing/decriminalizing/medical marijuana?

    Second, what do you think of the price of college? If the government would hike taxes and give free tuition would you be for or against it?

    Thank you for your time,

    Jessy H.

    Hello,


    My name is Luis.


    I am a first generation American, the son of immigrants, born and raised in this great nation. As a young child, I developed a fascination with politics, specifically elections.


    Since then, campaigns and elections are my passion, so much as graduating with a degree in political science, with an emphasis on American elections. In my free time you can find me watching ads, reading candidate statements, attending rallies, and keeping tabs on polls.


    More recently I have started to collect political bumper stickers. My collection started in 2010 and I have gathering memorabilia every election cycle since. I have collected from various parties and levels and have started a Twitter account to share my collection.


    I am writing in hopes that you would be able to send me a 2016 Anderson campaign bumper sticker to add to my collection. In return, I will mention Phil Anderson on my twitter account @politicalbumper, post a picture of the bumper sticker and along with a link to your website.


    My address is as follows:

    Luis Guitart

    1623 Bellevue Ave

    Apt 603

    Seattle, WA 98122


    I really appreciate your time and consideration.


    Cheers,


    Luis
