"Join me folks. Join the Red Team in making this happen. We can do it. We have the right leadership nationally, and the right leadership waiting in the wings in Minnesota. As my friend Donna Bergstrom likes to say - 'Let's do this!'"
I got a kick listening to the debate between the very informed Jenifer Zielinski, and the very uniformed Ilhan Omar. But hey - this is to represent CD 5. No offense peeps - but this CD does have some very odd voters therein. Not a whole lot of Republicans. Not a whole lot of conservatives. Heck, not even a whole lot of capitalists. What does it have a lot of? Somali refugees, progressives, millennial's, socialists, punks and poverty. Unfortunately, the kind of people who would vote for an alleged bigamist over a very informed person like Jenifer. Go figure.
But unlike CD 4 and CD 4, who have been stuck with progressives, statists, socialists, and worse (for decades) - what is the hill worth dying for this election? We know what the Blue Team has been trying to sell. What hill they want to die for. We have heard this just recently from Omar. Their "hill" is to impeach Trump. To roll back tax cuts. To kill the Second Amendment. To increase the number of sanctuary cities and states nationwide.
In a different world, this election would be a huge nothing burger. Unlike Obama's first mid-term, when the economy was deep in the tank, Obama came through smelling like a rose. Congress however, did not. The people wanted a change in Congress to prevent this country from turning into a socialist mecca.
With President Trump however, our economy is smoking hot. For everyone. As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". In the 2010 midterms, the economy certainly was broke. It needed fixing. In the 2018 midterms - not a bit broken. HOWEVER - if the Democrats take the House back, we will start going in reverse very fast.
What does all this mean? The hill worth dying for (nationally), is status quo. DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING! We are on the right track! In Minnesota however, we are not on the right track. Not a bit. Our Minnesota "hill" worth dying for, is to OVERTHROW THE STATUS QUO!
For seniors, regardless of party, WAKE UP! Minnesota is getting hosed on taxes! Not just Social Security tax for seniors, but our way higher than average income tax rates. Tim Walz has no interest in fixing Social Security. None. His mouth to our ears. Suck out seniors. And our state income taxes, Walz wants to take higher! And more gas tax, to boot!
Jeff Johnson is not a populist. Not a progressive. Not a socialist. He is a citizen who wants to be our Governor. He KNOWS our Social Security tax on seniors needs to be fixed - pronto visto. But he can't do it if he does not get elected. He can't do it unless we keep the Minnesota House Red. Jeff wants to fix our state income tax rates, so we are not a high SALT state. Again, he can't do that if he is not elected and we keep the Minnesota House Red.
Minnesota needs to change. Our status quo is killing us right now. Walz will just pour gas on the fire. Jeff Johnson on the other hand, will overthrow the status quo. Make Minnesota more livable for seniors and higher income people. Jeff's vision for this state (and trust me, I have heard it dozens of times on the campaign trail), is to make Minnesota better for EVERYONE. Not just one economic class like Walz wants to do. That is nothing but DFL status quo.
What are the twin peaks worth dying for in November? Nationally, keep the status quo. Let the President keep on keeping on. If we do, we will all prosper. In Minnesota, overthrow the status quo. Elect the first conservative Governor we have had in my lifetime. Keep the Minnesota House Red. Elect Doug Wardlow as the first Republican Attorney General in almost five decades. Elect Pam Myhra as our State Auditor and John Howe as our Secretary of State. Those two positions, as well as the AG spot, need to be cleaned out and fumigated.
Join me folks. Join the Red Team in making this happen. We can do it. We have the right leadership nationally, and the right leadership waiting in the wings in Minnesota. As my friend Donna Bergstrom likes to say - "Let's do this!"
