Gov. Daugaard: Improving Public Safety While Saving Money

Gov. Daugaard: Improving Public Safety While Saving Money

In South Dakota, we have an opportunity to make our state safer and save tens of millions of taxpayer dollars. It is an opportunity we must seize. South Dakota’s prison population has grown by six times in the last 35 years. Unfortunately, these high levels of imprisonment have not made our state safer. In the past decade, 17 states have lowered their imprisonment rates while also lowering their crime rates at twice the rate that South Dakota’s went down.

Anti-Gun Media Hypocrites Exposed

As reported by the Daily Caller, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas once again exposes the rank liberal hypocrisy of the “objective” “mainstream” media. James and Co. went around to some of these Leftist media figures–some of whom had guns, some of whom had armed security guarding their homes–and offered free “This home is proudly gun free” signs they could post in their yards.

Time for a Declaration of Non-Compliance

Time for a Declaration of Non-Compliance

With the federal government radically exceeding its legal Constitutional authority and running roughshod over the rights of the states and the people, it is clear to all (except liberals who agree with this usurpation, and the naive who still have their heads stuck in the sand of negotiation with evil) that radical steps are going to need to be taken by the states and the people if the American republic is to survive much longer.

Subsidizing the Slaughter of Innocents

The fact that the number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country is rising and not falling is further evidence that the procedure is a major revenue generator for them, and your tax dollars and my tax dollars are used to fund this soulless enterprise. The oft repeated assertion that the public monies given to Planned Parenthood are somehow separated out and not used for abortions is ridiculous. Money is fungible, and thus American taxpayers are subsidizing the killing of innocent children whether we want to or not.

Obama’s Default Threat is Hot Air

If Obama is bluffing, House Republicans could checkmate the Administration into making significant spending cuts by standing firm on the debt ceiling. But do they want to win? That is the $64 trillion question. Because should Congress fail to rein in out-of-control spending, that’s what the debt in all likelihood will be 30 years from now, if not more.

An Easy Guide to Spending and Debt Limits

This has been out for a while (and who knows: maybe you missed it the first time around), but since President Obama and his socialist cohorts still don’t understand basic fiscal fundamentals, here it is again.

Head Start: Waste of Money, Bad for Kids

Head Start: Waste of Money, Bad for Kids

The U.S. Department of Education quietly released a report right before Christmas (when they knew most Americans would be too busy to notice) with bad news for the $180 billion Head Start program. Not only is there little to no benefit from this multi-billion dollar program by the time a child reaches the first grade, by the time the child reaches the third grade, you might as well have thrown several billion dollars down a hole.

Detroit (from Steven Crowder's documentary "Detroit in Ruins")

Now We Know What Destroyed Detroit

Just like I discussed in my last article, Democrat Bolshevism, if you want a peek at where Obama and his Marxist crew are taking us, then look at what happened to Detroit. It is a case study. This will happen to the rest of the USA over time if these people and their ideas prevail. Detroit is an example of what Socialism and Communism do best: depreciate, dismantle, destroy, defeat, and demoralize. Almost an entire once great city … now it lies in ruins.
