“My Dad. I’m so proud of him.” – Nikki Herpin Lindquist

My Dad. I’m so proud of him. To me, politics looks like a job that no matter how hard you try, someone’s always mad at you. And, it doesn’t pay well. I know my Dad is one who really listens to the will of the people.

Although I am biased, I can also look objectively at the man my Father is. For those of you who have known my Dad for awhile, you know of his continued dedication to our great city through his years of volunteering. Way before he was involved in politics, my Dad gave countless hours of his time without recognition. He always gives without expecting anything in return.

I have watched him, over the almost forty years of my life, give of himself to such organizations as MADD, CSPD, SVAT (Senior Victim Assistance Team,) Girl Scouts, Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Judicial Advisory Board, Airport Commission, Friends of the NRA, Submarine Vets and I’m sure there’s others that I have forgotten.

He did all this while working full-time and raising three girls with my mom. My parents have been married for almost 50 years, and I’m sure most of you can agree that staying happily married for 50 years shows the kind of character both my parents have.

I don’t know if I’ll ever understand my Dad’s willingness to serve so much, but all I can say is that is the kind of person he is.

It really upsets me when I see comments written about my Dad that just aren’t true.

But my Dad is a man who leads on his principles, not based on what others think.

My Dad has instilled in me the importance of the Constitution and the second amendment.

To me, the second amendment isn’t just about owning guns, it’s about our freedom to have them if we want them. What the left doesn’t seem to understand about owning guns is that it was put in the Constitution to protect the people from the government. A government that fears its people equals liberty.

The government has slowly and steadily removed our freedoms to where some people may have not even noticed they have been taken away.

To those who don’t care about their second amendment rights, like most liberals, it is your decision whether or not you want to own a gun. Just because you don’t want to own a gun, doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t.

I thank God that the people have stood up against John Morse and the Democrats and said, “Enough is enough.” What better person to stand up against the Democrats than someone who is so well-known for helping to keep our Constitutional rights alive?

I can’t think of a better man.

Those of you who don’t know my Dad on a personal level, perhaps you should talk to him. After all, aren’t Democrats supposed to be the tolerant, non-judgemental ones? Just sayin!

Go Bernie Herpin!
