Letter: Vaccine mandates threaten disaster, tyranny

Senator Mike Goggin needs to step up to the plate.

Letter to the Editor graphic

We are living in an insane moment where you can be fired from your job simply for not wanting to take a vaccine. Those in power do not care if you have any personal reservations, they do not want you to do your own research, they just want you to comply. This is going to unemploy tens of thousands of Minnesotans. Some of our most talented nurses and doctors are among those people. Joe Biden and Gov. Walz have set our state on a disaster course and we need to stop them.

There is a thin Republican majority in the State Senate: 34 Republicans, 31 Democrats, and 2 Independents. We need every Republican Senator to get in line and stop the vaccine mandates during the upcoming special session for the Frontline Worker Pay Bill. Rep. Erik Mortensen (R-55A) created the Stop Vaccine Mandates Amendment and it is the only one that will stop federal, state, local, and private vaccine mandates. Our medical privacy is at stake and we cannot pass down tyranny to the next generation.

We need to force our state senator, Mike Goggin, to stand up for conservative values and actually represent his constituents. Call him up at 651-296-5612 and demand he goes to bat for medical freedom. We the People are sick and tired of losing our freedom and the American way of life. It’s time to fight and save our state.

We are familiar with the zipper principle when two lanes are attempting to merge on a highway. One often sees some vehicles jacking for position to resist the interposition of someone else coming into their lane.
Too many people think that any government-sponsored program that contributes to our general welfare is “socialism”; i.e., public parks, roads, military, etc. These programs are not unique to socialism and can be administered by any type of government.
No matter what we look like or where we come from, we all want to have our voices heard and valued in our democracy. But as of today, 60,000 Minnesotans of voting age living in our communities can't vote because they have committed a felony.
I am writing to express my strong belief in the importance of Boy Scouts for our youth. Scouting is a youth development program that helps young people become responsible citizens, active members of their communities, and leaders in their own lives. Through hands-on learning activities, outdoor activities, and service projects, scouts learn outdoor safety, problem solving, teamwork, self-confidence, and much more. They also develop important life skills such as mutual respect and understanding, communication, goal setting, creativity, honesty, and integrity.
