Obtained from Action 4 Liberty
January is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to deal a MAJOR BLOW to the political machine and emergency powers that have been abused. All the work over the past year that led to us removing four governor cronies from office, will culminate in a showdown once the legislature meets…
ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
The math is finally on our side to end the governor’s Emergency Powers. We’ve already had six Democrats vote our way, which means we only need four of them to continue voting that way…
If we fail, our beloved businesses who are under assault will likely fail and go bankrupt. And the liberties we are losing everyday that this lockdown continues, will be lost for good. The stakes are incredibly high!
Capitol insiders are telling us right now that some of the Democrats who voted the right way in the past, aren’t so certain they are going to vote the right way now that the election is over and the new legislative session is beginning. These politicians: Reps Marquart, Sandstede, Lislegard and Ecklund.
We need your help to remind them that the governor’s illegal and immoral lockdown is harming Minnesota. The legislature MUST strip him of his powers immediately.
Here are the game they might play:
- Kill the Resolution
- Avoid Hearing it
- Water it Down – Fake End Powers Bill
- BLACK OUT
As you and I are reaching out to these Democrats, so is the governor. He’s getting nervous that his powers are going to be eliminated – he won’t go down without a fight. Democrats are going to do their best to Kill the Resolution to end the governor’s Emergency Powers. However, angry voters are more powerful than anything the governor can promise them (campaign funds, committee assignments, etc). So your calls and emails are key!
If they can’t kill the bill, Democrat leaders will try to avoid an actual vote by using parliamentary procedures. Tell these Democrat targets that they MUST stand up against Democrat leadership so we get a clean vote on ending the governor’s Emergency Powers.
When killing and avoiding doesn’t work, Democrat, and even Republican leadership, will start watering down the Resolution. We’re starting to hear that some Republicans are preparing to cut backroom deals with the Democrats on a Fake end the governor’s powers bill.
Tell these Democrat targets that we DEMAND a clean vote on the end to the Emergency Powers Resolution. And if you have a Republican Rep, make sure he or she only supports a clean vote on ending the Emergency Powers.
Lastly, the political establishment will try to BLACK OUT the vote by avoiding a roll call. The House rules require 15 members to raise their hands in order to get a recorded vote. When politicians don’t want to be held accountable, they avoid roll call votes so nothing is shown on the record. We MUST DEMAND a roll call vote on every single procedural move.
To recap, on January 5th when the Legislature convenes, we DEMAND a clean vote on the end the governor’s Emergency Powers resolution. No gimmicks, no fake bills, no refusal to obtain a roll call vote. It’s time everyone is on board to finally end the pain.
If everyone who reads this email calls, texts and/or emails these four Democrats, we can finally put an end to the Emergency Powers once and for all. Democrat Reps Gene Pelowski and Mike Sundin have already told their constituents that they’ll vote the right way (we’ll be watching to make sure they do!). So we need you to contact these four other Democrats immediately:
Also find posts on their facebook pages, and comment on it, which is the best way to get them to engage rather than making a post on their page that they won’t approve.

Rep _______, I’m reaching out to you as a concerned Minnesotan who believes our state is in bad shape with the Governor making unilateral decisions. His orders are harming our economy and they are anti-democratic. You voted to end the governor’s Emergency Powers before, but now we have the real chance to finally end them when the legislature meets on January 5th. Can you confirm that you are still going to vote the right way by voting YES on the end of the Emergency Powers Resolution. And will you stand up against all attempts by Democrat leadership to kill the Resolution, so there is a clean vote?
Rep ________, I watched you vote to end the governor’s Emergency Powers when it came up previously. And I thank you for doing the right thing. This lockdown shows that the Governor’s powers are abusive and causing great harm to Minnesota. Will you confirm that you’ll vote to end the emergency powers again when the legislature meets on January 5th? I heard that other legislators are going to try to derail the vote or amend it so the governor continues to have his powers. Will you stand up against these attempts so Minnesota citizens get a clean vote to end it?
Thank you in advance for helping us out. If this is not your cup of tea, help out with our pressure campaign by donating here. As you can imagine, we’ll need to bring some heat against the final holdouts in this fight.
