I think I brought this up in the last election, but don’t you think it is odd that John Kline does not have an issues page on his website? 2010 will be his seventh run at congress, and he has nothing.
John Kline has a lot of support from people who call themselves outdoorsman. It is too bad he is rated as the worst Minnesota Legislator when it comes to issues of clean water and land protection votes. He and Michelle Bachmann both scored zero in 2009 on 13 votes that would impact outdoors issues.
I listened to a rant the other day by a conservative caller to a radio station talking about how it isn’t good enough to get down to being average in taxes, we need to have even lower taxes to be a prosperous state. Doesn’t that make us below average? Am I wrong that if we want to be an above average state we have to invest in that? The Governor and people like that caller can’t just say we are a great state and expect it be.
When people talk about our taxes and spending do they compare Minnesota to Wisconsin, Michigan and other Midwestern states, or are we comparing Minnesota to states that don’t have to pay for plowing, and the continuous road repairs that cold weather states need? I’m guessing even Iowa doesn’t spend what we spend on road maintenance, let alone states even further south. Doesn’t that alone increase our taxes more than other states?
Facebook and Twitter are really bothering me. It isn’t just all the time I spend on the sights, it’s holding my tongue about what other people write. A local politician wrote something that could be easily twisted to be used against him. I didn’t write anything. I guess that means I just don’t have the killer instinct Michael Brodkorb has.
Colin Lee and Sigrid Iversen will be running for the House seats in Senate District 36. Both Colin and Sigrid have social media presence. And both could use a lot of volunteers and financial support as Colin takes on Mary Liz Holberg and Sigrid challenges Pat Garofalo.
