In no particular order, here are some other thoughts I’ve been mulling over, on the politics of hope vs. the politics of fear, values, and the supposed urban-rural divide. This is related to but certainly not exclusive to the #mngov#DFL2018 race.
1) I believe wholeheartedly that a person’s values are not dependent on where they live. People who hold values of compassion and care for each other; respect for our interdependence; building a society that doesn’t leave anyone out; care & respect for the land — live EVERYWHERE.
Progressives live everywhere, OK? And in many cases our progressive values come from, NOT in spite of, our rural upbringings.
Just a quick outline to show the #occult presence in #Minnesota politics from #MNGov & US Senator to the Board of Silica Twsp. Spans half a century, my entire lifetime, though it's existance is far longer. This particular timeline is in which they "exterminated" MY ENTIRE FAMILY!
The "alleged" murder, suicide❗There was another "alleged murder suicide in Fairbault, a week later. The retired public servant had ties to #Clinton@StateDept via National Child Safety Council which ties to a former #Hibbing Police Officer & A. PAUL MONTEEN WHO TRAINED EM ALL❗
