China and Nebraska Hogs

LB 176 – China and Nebraska Hogs
 
This is where I break with Republican Conservatives. Do we really think a Chinese company will promote the General Welfare of We the Nebraska Farmer by controlling our Hog Producers for their benefit? I got news for you…Ranchers will be next. How in the world do we think “Chinese Capitalism” will be a “Good Thing” for our Nebraska family farms?
 
If Republicans think this will enhance the liberty of our farmers/producers/ranchers for themselves or the next generation…they are misguided. You can watch the predicament of the “Tennessee Chicken Producer” with Tyson or what has happened to the “Family Hog Farm” in Iowa to know the fate of what is coming under the direction of a Chinese Multi-National Company.
 
I’m a capitalist and employ almost 100 people. I’m not one to preach or pass these “Ultra Capitalist” bills to prove I’m business friendly.  I’m comfortable in my capitalistic clothes, but I’m about Americans first.
 
This bill is a perfect example of why most Nebraska Republicans have no clue on why Trump who talks tough on Ch-Eye-Nah (my Trump impression) has an appeal to many conservatives. This is going to get real for Nebraska….reeeallll quick.
 
To be fair (PS–they don’t endorse me or I don’t endorse them…I’m just giving my opinion), real conservative leaders like Brasch, Groene, and Schnoor said ‘No’. Other Republicans like Davis and Bloomfield took a stand. Good for them. I have liked what I have seen from a social, civil, conservative and boldness level from Brasch, Groene, and Schnoor (90+% of the time). I will continue to watch their moves. I tend to appreciate their boldness and how they view what is best for Nebraska. They are not afraid to stand for what they think is right and go against the prevailing tide of the majority. Our Rural Way of Life is important to defend. Stay conservative. Ditch these Republicans who put China lobbying dollars in front of a Nebraska way of life.
