What has Collin Peterson done from a practical standpoint to prevent this “lock down” or stop it from continuing even though there is no science whatsoever behind it? It is based on a untested high school science experiment and has cost far more in lives lost and trillions of dollars of economic activity. The only thing he can think of is more unconstitutional government handouts that nobody prefers and that massively increase the federal deficit and will eventually destroy the nation! He is using your tax dollars to buy re-election! You need to tell him to keep his hands out of your pockets!
What the people want is to get the government out of our business. Even though he took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and is Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, he hasn’t done anything to proactively address the violation of our Constitutional Due Process rights to our property and to earn a living, or enforce any of our other Constitutional rights such as association or religion. He could have and should have. If he would have, we wouldn’t need government intervention to resolve a problem that the government created! At most, he has a vague response to it: he said, ” . . . this is not going to happen again on my watch. When we get all of this settled, we are going to have a way to respond to emergencies that we can implement whenever we have an emergency situation.” Let’s not give him another “watch.” He had a 30-year “watch.” We have had massive property loss and loss of our civil liberties because he did not address the issues that led to this situation. It is time for effective representation in Washington D.C. from Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District!
He is very generous with other people’s money. The national debt when Collin Peterson took office was $4 trillion, now its $25 trillion. He says he’s fiscally conservative, but he supports the programs that led to this massive debt.
Before Collin Peterson was elected, he was for term limits, now he’s on his 15th term. That comfortably falls into the definition of hypocrisy. A road sign in the District says “Politicians are like diapers, they have to be changed regularly, and for the same reasons.” I couldn’t agree more. Thirty years is way too long for one person to remain in elective office. We are missing out on the fresh ideas and motivation from a lot of quality people in the 7th Congressional District because one person has occupied this office for so long. Mr. Peterson rarely shows any initiative. He doesn’t resolve anything–he just perpetuates existing problems. We are long overdue for a change.
Collin Peterson says he supports the Second Amendment, but what has he done in support of it other than strum his guitar? When his colleagues protested against guns in the well of the House of Representatives, he was completely silent.
What has he done to keep biological males out of female showers and bathrooms? Nothing. Instead, he has voted in support of sodomy numerous times or did not vote against it when he could have.
What has he done to keep these multi-national corporations from shipping our jobs overseas?
He has presided over the rise of the mega corporate farm and multi-national agriculture corporation and demise of our rural communities and family farms.
He voted to allow illegal immigrants to vote in our elections!
He says he’s the most bi-partisan member of Congress, but he votes with Nancy Pelsosi almost all of the time and gives his money to extremely liberal causes that oppose the issues he says he supports.
Nancy Pelosi effectively is the Representative for the Minnesota Seventh Congressional District. The first thing Collin Peterson does after he is elected is to vote for Nancy Pelosi. He helps put her in charge of the machinery of Congress. He knows that much of what occurs there is procedural and through committees, so the leader wields incredible power. She has a say as to who serves on which committee, and how, and if, bills move through the House. Furthermore, he knows that Congress works essentially through a two party system, and they tend to vote in groups, so what the leader pushes to a large measure determines what the result will be.
So, it doesn’t matter how he votes on any particular bill, because he votes “yes” on Nancy Pelosi’s initiatives when he voted for her to lead the Democrats in Congress, and that is the vote that matters. Has his vote against a Pelosi initiative ever meant the difference of whether it passes? I don’t think so, and so it is always a safe, meaningless vote—except for his re-electability.
So, regardless of how Collin Peterson otherwise may vote, a vote for Collin Peterson is a vote for Nancy Pelosi and gun control;
Obamacare and poorer medical care;
sodomy and biological males in women’s showers and bathrooms;
Islam and Muslims, and illegal aliens sweeping across the nation and voting in our elections! The rise of the Islamist has occurred on his watch and he hasn’t done anything to address it!;
more and more in-your-face control by the United Nations over our lives;
Planned Parenthood and the butchering of babies and the sale of baby parts;
mega corporate farming and disenfranchising our children from remaining on the land and continuing farming which is the most common form of free enterprise;
more and more welfare that the nation can’t support and that isn’t good for the welfare recipient or the taxpayer, and a complete collapse of our economy due to run-away debt;
and this massive tax and spend program that is wrapped around this lie called man-made global warming.
We need different, and far better, representation in Washington, D.C.
The people who established this nation intended for a continual rotation of citizens for elective positions, not career politicians like Collin Peterson. Let’s value private enterprise and personal responsibility. Let’s spend within our means and not create more debt for our children and grandchildren.
