• The Republicans have a collective heart to get people off welfare and into a job where the people can gain self esteem and off the idea of government paying them to stay on welfare. I know of a resident of Crow Wing County who has fathered eight children with three different women and has never worked on a job to provide child support. Democrats seem to look the other way to deadbeats. That deadbeat dad will negatively influence the ambition of his offspring thus generating the next generation of deadbeats.

• The Democrats have a terrible record of putting people to work unless it is work in government to live off productive wage earners. The Canadian pipeline could have put thousands to work and gotten us off Middle East oil. Obamacare had to hire 10,000 IRS agents to enforce people's insurance decisions - more non-productive labor supported by the Democrat socialistic agenda. I don't think any legislators who voted for Obamacare ever read the bill before voting for it. We don't need legislators who have their heads in the sand when voting for socialist ideas.

• Republicans also care for the environment but don't respond to silly emotions. Take for example, stopping power generation with coal that have scrubbers in the stacks. That emotional effort will have zero effect in climate warming but let's look at the tens of thousands currently employed in the coal business. Should we stand by and let a few goofy environmentalists significantly damage our economy with no measurable results?
