I am really tired of Heidi Heitkamp only attacking yet providing no facts on her own credentials. This only tells me she probably doesn't have credentials to be a U.S. senator.
I know Rick Berg and you will not find a more "quality" individual with total integrity. Anytime I've approached Rick on an issue, he stopped what he was doing, including campaigning, and he took the time to take me aside, one on one and he truly listened to me. The interesting part of this is that his response was clearly honest and from his heart. Sometimes I didn't like the answer, but that is ok, that is what we need in our U.S. senator most Honesty and Passion from the heart. No one qualifies with these characteristics more than Berg.
Like Romney, success creates jealousy and envy. Heidi has spent her entire career in the government or quasi-government supported sector and obviously thinks that the only way to succeed is to be illegal. That is clearly not true. She knows the laws and Rick has followed the laws in his ladder to success. Yes, I am envious of Rick, too. I dream that I, too, could be as successful as he is. America stands for success. Heidi obviously sees the American dream as one in being supported by government, not in individual success like Rick's.
I am a walking testimony that I stand behind Berg, his honesty, his passion for the good of all of us and mostly the fact that he listens to me. He is the perfect candidate that I've long waited to see. Heidi and her ads are despicable and exemplify her character, not Rick's. We have him, now we must elect him so we, too, can continue the pursuit of the American dream.
