Bob Freyberg got it right. The two parties are too extreme and polarized to work together.
Both are equally to blame for our state government mess. Both parties are picking candidates who fit a certain mold, candidates who have worked their way up a political ladder. How can such well-educated politicians get this state government so messed up? It’s about politics, votes and donations.
What happened to putting the needs of the state before a political agenda?
In a recent USA Today poll, 60 percent of those polled said both parties are equally to blame. In a recent Gallup Poll, 80 percent said they want a balanced approach to balancing the budget. Only 20 percent want a cuts-only budget deal.
Wake up GOP, you have only 20 percent of the voters with you right now. How do you think you will win any positions in the next election?
DFL, 60 percent of your people hold you equally responsible, and your election hopes are little better than the GOP’s. Even DFLer Mike Hatch said that all current office holders should not be re-elected, DFL and GOP alike.
Voters, stop donating to and voting for candidates of those two parties. Look for candidates to vote for who are not from those two parties.
We need quality independent candidates to run for state office, now. Freyberg would be a great independent candidate.
I am looking to the Independence Party candidates to offer new leadership in this state and so should you. I am waiting for qualify independent candidates to step up now and announce a run for state office.
We need a third choice now.
