The Life and Liberty Group’s website Less Gov recently posted a video of an interview I did with LibertyToday.TV recently on the topic of the liberal leadership from the “Republican” Party in the state House of Representatives.
Gordon Howie and I discussed how disappointing it has been to see a Republican super-majority in the South Dakota Legislature…yet several textbook-Republican issues have been blocked by “Republican” leadership. At a time when we would expect to see the conservative agenda making great progress, it has been largely stymied by RINOs who seem to be more interested in dividing the spoils than in making our state more strong and secure.
We won’t get rid of all the RINOs in the upcoming primary less than a month away here in South Dakota, but we have some great opportunities to put several of them out to pasture. People need to check out the latest candidate evaluations at the SD Liberty Caucus so they can separate the elephants from the RINOs and move closer to getting some real Republican leadership next year.
As our nation is in distress and it seems like an uphill climb to get good leadership at the national level, it is all the more important that South Dakotans be able to rely on their state leaders to erect a bulwark against the decay and mismanagement that is destroying our country. We don’t have to go down with the rest of the country–and with South Dakota leaders committed to the traditional principles that made us a great state and great nation, we won’t.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
