No Collusion, Time to Move On

AMERICA, USA–After two years of investigating, there has been no collusion to be found by Team Trump. No collusion means no collusion. It does not mean what you feel it means, it means just that: no collusion. That’s all.

Now, after two years of believing something that has been found to be unfounded, it may be time to stop believing those who told you collusion was real in the first place: the mainstream media and social media.

How unfortunate to blindly believe and now feel sickened to hear the result. Such wasted time, could have been focused on positive and bettering self, yet spent on trying to bring the innocent down. To prove a bad thing.

One thing that was proven by the Mueller Report is reassurance that our president is not a foreign asset, and that is cause for celebration. But you won’t hear it from all of America.

Both sides will have their opines and beliefs but the legal system has spoken and it said: no collusion. That’s the facts. Time to move on.

Ilhan Omar Tweets back at Trump, Reads Questions off Paper and is Not Afraid to Show You and Everyone Else on Twitter or the News

Today, a great American proved once again that tweeting is the most important thing in the world, next to disparaging the president, or doing both. Ilhan Omar, of district 5, Minnesota, read questions aloud off paper and smiled proudly as she dismantled a witness not allowed to speak. She owned, and everyone loves her for it.

BREAKING: Shockingly, Insanely Unhinged Photo of President Trump That You Just Won’t Believe, Proves What You Already Knew, and He Probably Doesn’t Want You to See It Ever

In a speech given recently, President Trump is seen in this unbelievably, insanely shocking photo that he probably doesn’t want you to see at any time ever! He appears, unhinged, it’s newsworthy, this photo, absolutely.

A Vote for Democrats as a Public-Sector Union Member may be a Misguided Vote

On the ballot in Minnesota are two items that public-sector union members should consider very closely when/if voting straight Democrat in the 2018 Midterms: 1) Single-Payer Healthcare and 2) $15 Minimum Wage. These items are directly contradictory of the hard work that has been done to fight for your benefits and your living wage as a public-sector union member, let me explain my thoughts on these two items and how they could be undoing recent accomplishments of public-sector unions.

  • $15 minimum wage for all does not increase your living wage as a public-sector union member, in fact, it may make your wage less livable, more futile. It may also reduce the number of employees in the local workforce, triggering more unemployment, in order to make up for increased wages paid without increased profits earned. This does not benefit you as a public-sector union member and it does not benefit your community. Many Democrat candidates champion $15 minimum wage as a good thing with little evidence to prove their point, it is already being implemented in St Paul, MN (one example of concern about Minimum Wage locally); recently, perhaps, jobs have gone, businesses have and will close and move elsewhere in lieu of this policy change. These items impact us all. Here is a resource on Minimum Wage.
  • A Single-Payer Healthcare System implementation is an item of considerable speculation, ambiguity, and concern. If you have good healthcare/insurance now, one your union fought hard for to attain, perhaps you can kiss that benefit goodbye under Democrats who want a Single-Payer Health Care System. What’s more, not only could a Single-Payer Healthcare System give you theoretical universal healthcare and take away your unique healthcare plan, one based on your individual needs, one that fits you, but it could increase the taxes for you and your community–keep in mind Minnesota has the fifth highest tax burden in the nation, currently. Could you afford to go on a plan that isn’t built for you precisely and that may cost you more? I don’t think I could, and we are all different with special and unique healthcare needs. And what is the quality of Single-Payer Healthcare and is making it mandatory for all even constitutional? I have just a few questions on this topic, you should as well. I am open-minded. Here is a resource on Medicare for All.

These items, and the policies related to them, concern me as a public-sector union member, as a taxpayer, as a dad, as a husband and as a voter, especially when the rhetoric is at a fever pitch and the focus is on what President Trump does personally on Twitter or how bad he is or was as a person or ubiquitous smear campaigns against both political parties and not on actual government policy that change things for you and I and ours.

These policies are paramount to all. But do we all understand them entirely? Do we understand he Bill of Rights or the Constitution? I am not sure I do. Further, do we vote because we hate something or someone, or because we love something or someone, or their ideas are good? Do we vote for what was benign in the past, what might have worked out OK for that moment, or do we move forward and vote for ideas that work for the future, our future?

The items mentioned above, even though mere rhetoric, could have grave impacts on wages and benefits and communities actually. Think about that when you vote, it does matter.

Moreover, when you vote in the upcoming midterm election, don’t think about the party or something far away or some big ideas or some boilerplate talking point, think about your pocketbook, think about the Constitution, think about the law, the Bill of Rights, small changes for positive, and think about your local situation, good or bad, and how you can improve on it. You have the opportunity to say you want better, your voice is your vote. That thought and decision and voice on who you vote for will impact you most. That and recall, maybe the party that claims to represent your public-sector union vociferously is not the party that represents you personally.

Tim Walz is for Higher Taxes in Minnesota and those Taxes are Absolutely Necessary

It’s a fact that Minnesota has the 5th highest tax burden in America, yet we could have the highest tax burden in the country if we elect more Democrats. We could be number one. I believe that is what we must do. That is why I believe we must vote for Tim Walz, because a vote for Tim Walz is a vote for higher necessary taxes.
Remember the above stated fact whilst placing your votes in November. We are not the highest taxed state in our country: four other states outdo us in paying higher taxes. We must show our country that we can and will pay more in taxes for what is right. Tim Walz is absolutely the candidate to make it happen, he already proposed adding a gas tax to Minnesotan’s taxes, and many other tax hikes. To do better we need to vote for Tim Walz who will raise our taxes greatly, regardless.
In conclusion, we must pay higher taxes to make Minnesota the highest taxed state in America. Big government has a “buy now” price, Tim Walz is ready and willing with our pocketbooks. Let’s not wait. We must keep Minnesota progressive no matter the heavy cost. That is why, in November, I am willing to pay my fair share with higher taxes imposed by Tim Walz and the Democrats. I am willing to look good and pay more by voting for the Democratic party exclusively. I hope you consider this option and do that same.

A Vote for Jeff Johnson is a Vote for Lower Taxes for All Minnesotans

If you are a Minnesotan, you pay the 5th highest tax burden in the nation, that is a fact. That means your taxes are very progressive, which, means your taxes are extremely costly to you.

Acknowledging this fact, Minnesotans cannot afford a candidate who supports additional and more aggressive state and local taxes (like the gas tax and others) especially when we are already paying more than our fair share for all.

That is why in November I, and many others, those who are fed up with high taxes with limited gains, will vote for Jeff Johnson for governor. Minnesota cannot afford another tax-and-spend politician like Tim Walz, or his Democrat cohorts.

Taking from citizens will not solve the problems of the government. Vote for your dollar, vote for your freedoms, vote for Jeff Johnson.

Don’t fall into hand-wringing hot-button topics politics.  We don’t need big government with its heavy price tag. We need accountability and efficiency, a better deal for Minnesotans.

Vote for less government, less taxes, vote for Jeff Johnson.
