Letter: We need to protect ourselves from the federal government

Berube writes, "I do know if we tolerate this type of very dangerous behavior, it will only get worse."

We can no longer sit back and say "Well, that is just the way it is" and allow our government to go into private homes without cause or provocation. We the people have to put a stop to this corruption and abuse.

People say, “how do you dare write letters like that?” Precisely my point. This is a free country, I should not have to worry about what I say or write and I should not have to worry about the federal government threatening or harassing me in my own home.

I do know if we tolerate this type of very dangerous behavior, it will only get worse. The Second Amendment was put in place to protect us from any abusive and corrupt government. The Fourth Amendment gave us the right to be secure in our homes. My mission is to wake up the people in this country who want to remain free. I will die a free man and will not live as a controlled peasant!

"Many sectors of Minnesota’s economy face workforce shortages, including healthcare, social services, education and financial services to name just a few. Minnesota’s economic recovery from the pandemic and its continued economic vitality will depend on the availability of a highly skilled and well-educated workforce," writes Minnesota State University Moorhead President Anne Blackhurst. "To meet this need, the colleges and universities of Minnesota State need funding to support vital academic programs."
