They want to go back. The parties that brought this country its worst depression ever and almost ruined this state want to bring back the ideas that caused it.

Tim Miller, Dave Baker and Andrew Lang say we don't need roads or bridges repaired. Bankrupt the schools and small towns-they don't care. Ruin the farmer-they don't care. All Miller, Baker and Lang want is tax breaks for the top taxpayers. They don't care about the poor, elderly or children; that is not their problem.

They gut an insurance plan so it is not cost-effective and refuse to fix it, because they don't believe the poor need insurance and that people can live on the slave wages that Wal-Mart and other big-box stores pay. "Let them starve" is their motto.

Miller and Baker don't believe in the Constitution. When Thomas Jefferson wrote it he said religion should keep their nose out of politics; they have backed bills that tell people what and how they should believe in a God. In 1976 there were over 200 recognized religions and probably more today.

This is why the founders of this nation in their wisdom made sure that it was founded in freedom of religion for all, not just one or a few. We do not live like they do under ISIS. We have the right to worship or believe what we choose.

So if you don't want this state to go back into bankruptcy and you believe in the Constitution, you will vote Andrew Falk, Mary Sawatzky and Lyle Koenen, because they believe in the rights of all people and do not want to bring back the bankruptcy days that we had under the Republican failed policies. As farmers and teacher they know their problems and the problems of small towns. They know that the cities have as many road problems as the rural area and that it takes money to repair them. They know how to get your school money problems solved without laying off teachers.
