Mining has been done in Minnesota for over 100 years. As Governor, I will work with you to get mining industries back to mining and producing wealth and independence in Minnesota. I will use the office of Governor to end the long delays and blockades to permitting. I will remove unnecessary mandates and regulations. Our miners are the best stewards of our natural resources and they can and will be trusted to protect it again.
Minnesota currently ranks #8 in overall taxation with excessive taxes ranging from wheelage tax, cellphone tax, environmental and recycle tax, gas tax, and worst of all, a SOCIAL SECURITY retirement benefit tax! That’s right! First we pay tax on our monthly earnings; then, we in Minnesota, are taxed again when we retire and collect our earned Social Security check! 37 other states do not tax Social Security benefits for seniors, but Minnesota does. This is the first tax I will eliminate as quickly as possible, allowing Minnesota seniors access to their entire earnings.
2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS
“Come and try to take it from me.” Does that sum up my stance on our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms? Freedom, Security, Prosperity. These principles are the backbone of my Mission as Governor. I will ensure that each law-abiding, competent Minnesota citizen will have the right to own and carry a firearm to ensure personal and family security at all times. I will also work to encourage and implement a US Constitutional Carry law allowing for inter-state travel with proper ID. Again, this will provide security for the hunter-fisherman, as well as for the millions of families camping and traveling throughout the country.
Our education system has become increasingly overburdened with administrative regulation, duplication and paperwork. The vast majority of school payroll is spent on administration, reducing funds for teachers and aids in the classroom. I will apply skills as a teacher and Principal, to critically assess, and eliminate waste, and move administrators and funds into the classroom to directly impact the student/teacher ratio. I will also end Common Core.
REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT / ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
I will END this program. The liberals have taken advantage of our Minnesota Nice, enabling violent, abusive and ill-intended people into our state through multiple volunteer agencies. Under my administration we will end federal contracts and U.N. agreements for refugees & illegal immigration. Minnesotans will no longer fund immigration/relocation programs of refugees through these social programs. We will no longer be exploited for our kind & generous nature.
Yes, I am a Republican. But, more importantly, I am a Statesman and a Constitutionalist.
