You asked for one simple thing: a pledge, a signed commitment, for the next Governor of Minnesota to clearly state that abusive, unilateral Emergency Powers will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!
In politics, talk is cheap. Every candidate trying to earn your vote will utter carefully crafted talking points making you think they are on your side. But when push comes to shove, they won't be there for you when it matters the most.
Either a governor candidate will pledge to:
- Sign no bills as Governor until the Never Again Bill is passed
- Call on the legislature for No Budget until the Peacetime Emergency is ended and the Never Again Bill passes
- Refuse to ever infringe on our liberties using Emergency Powers as Governor
We tried working with Scott Jensen last May when he dropped the End Walz' Emergency Powers Resolution. We asked him if this was just another stunt like his Gun Control bill where he was just "having a conversation" or was he being serious.
Remember, last May our beloved businesses were still shut down and people weren't suppose to travel unless it was for an "essential" job. Jensen's failure to bring forward a vote ensured we would face at least another month of Walz' tyranny. Turns out, it lasted more than a year!
Instead of courageously standing up to Party leadership and forcing the vote, Scott Jensen cowered. Here's our write up from last May.
Once again, Jensen REFUSES to take the courageous stance and sign the NEVER AGAIN PLEDGE!
Scott Jensen is sending a clear signal to YOU that he is not serious about Ending Walz' Emergency Powers.
If he was truly serious, he wouldn't sidestep this pledge. This means that Scott is only willing to pay lip service on this issue.
You know the saying: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
Politicians like Scott Jensen don't sign pledges because they want wiggle room when dealing with the radical left. They're always more concerned with how to compromise than standing firmly on their values.
Do you know Scott Jensen also REFUSED to sign the pledge to never raise your taxes? At the end of the 2019 Legislative Session, Jensen and other Republicans caved to Walz and the radical left, and increased YOUR taxes. Here's our article from May of 2019 with the vote.
But Jensen also doesn't seem to want to force this issue to the front of budget negotiations. Which is one of the strongest parts of the pledge. Imagine the pressure on the Senate Republicans if the Party's gubernatorial candidates are calling on them to not pass a budget without passing the Never Again Bill?
That's called negotiating from a position of strength! Which is something lost on most Republicans in this state.
But I do have some good news. The other candidate in the race just signed the pledge!
That's right. There is a candidate that has shown courage to stand up and do what's right and what is needed.
Mike Murphy is a former police officer, the mayor of Lexington and a small business owner. We've had a couple conversations on the phone over the past few days where I had the pleasure of sharing with him your stories and how important this issue is to you.
So at this point, one of the two Republican candidates for Governor of Minnesota have signed the Never Again Pledge! You can thank Mike by emailing him at [email protected]
Here at Action 4 Liberty, we work to cut through the smoke and mirrors that these politicians try peddling to us. And that's why this pledge is so important. It separates the serious players from the pretenders!
This election could not have higher stakes! After what Governor Walz just did to our small businesses, youth athletes and nursing home patients, we can't afford to have him re-elected. And we also can't afford to have Walz puppets like Julie Sandstede and Dave Lislegard back up at the Capitol.
Fortunately, Action 4 Liberty is doing something about it. We just hit our 20,000th door this week up on the Iron Range. Our field team is talking to voters every day who voted for Walz, but now say NEVER AGAIN!
