From the founding of this country, it wasn't enough to have freedom of religion, as the pilgrims had in Holland, they needed a place to be able to pass on their values to their children without undue influence by those who thought they should teach different values.
Currently, laws are being drafted in Minnesota (RD4615) to include lessons on Gender Fluidity, among others. Education, especially at the middle school level, should not be for indoctrination related to sexuality. Students need basic skills and a place to meet all the people around them before trying to chop everyone into a million groups. I stand for basic education not indoctrination and will vote against bill RD4615 and its ilk on controversial topics or to force teachers 'to conform' to one particular ideology
I have owned a small business, I have studied life contingencies, I have a full knowledge of many of the forces which affect business costs, and their ability to turn a profit. Profit means good health. Good health means employment. Employment means prosperity.
Central to a business's ability, and their staffs' ability to grow, are social stability and peace. We need stability in our communities, especially those ripped apart by riots and rising crime. If these communities are going to make progress, they need stability.
Civil Rights are the incarnation of the dignity given to all people at their creation by God. Violation of these rights creates an injury which takes away the inner peace of the individual and injures the trust between them and the government. As such, civil rights are not an after thought, but an aspect of what good police are sworn to protect and helps to create the peace the police are present to help guarantee.
From my experience seeing anarchy, civilization and peace are among the greatest gifts that can be given by a nation to a people. Excessive spending not only impoverishes the poor in an unbalanced way every time taxes are raised, they reduce the very peace government is supposed to assure. We have suffered specifically in this state by taxes that, in some areas, are regressive and we are going to begin seeing the sour fruit of those actions.
Furthermore, single one time supplement payments are not going to cover the size of constant loss all are going to see. Money that can't buy things as shelves become bare (the direct result of the type of price manipulation that the Biden Administration is currently discussing), is worthless. While America's positions in the world have been blessed in many ways, we are still fundamentally governed by the laws of economics and we as a people need to take responsibility to elect leaders who engage in fiscal responsibility worthy of its citizens.
