In Minnesota, when we have political debates, such as in Duluth, and Grand Rapids, we only see candidates that are from the Donkey and Elephant regimes, one trying to out do the other buying the most votes.
The above mentioned debates were sponsored by Debate Minnesota, which boasts a board member lineup of Donkeys and Elephants that apparently selects only candidates of their choosing, even though there are other qualified candidates seeking to represent the people of Minnesota instead of spending, corruption and lies.
Some of us in Minnesota are realizing, some faster than others, that the two party plague is in fact a disease that protects career politicians, corporate interests and increased taxes for the continued expansion of big government. We want and need less not more!
Many of us in Minnesota are becoming or are damn tired of electing representatives that take it upon themselves to become our masters. This certainly can not be what our Founders had envisioned.Details
Here is a short but energetic editorial on Investors Business Daily about the Volt fraud at Government Motors. Make sure you look at the photo showing the smiling, phony Bureaucrats and Michigan Monarchs who, thanks to the average Dufus Americanus, can easily turn your enslavement into a fuzzy photo-op.
We heard GM’s then-CEO Fritz Henderson claim the Volt would get 230 miles per gallon in city conditions. Popular Mechanics found the Volt to get about 37.5 mpg in city driving, and Motor Trend reports: “Without any plugging in, (a weeklong trip to Grandma’s house) should return fuel economy in the high 30s to low 40s.”
Car and Driver reported that “getting on the nearest highway and commuting with the 80-mph flow of traffic — basically the worst-case scenario — yielded 26 miles; a fairly spirited backroad loop netted 31; and a carefully modulated cruise below 60 mph pushed the figure into the upper 30s.”
We know that our Soros-sanctioned, Green Prime Minister has hailed the Chevy Volt as the new Lord and Savior of the planet. After all, it is impossible to ignore the fact that this car, no matter what you think of EVs or hybrids, is the direct result of central planning from the people in power who pass laws allowing them to take and spend your money as they, along with their friends in big corporations, see fit. In the process, the enablers and their recipients all get richer, and those who aren’t in power lose their prosperity and freedom.Details
