The American new conservative majority we represent is not based on abstract theorizing of the kind that turns off the American people, but on common sense, intelligence, reason, hard work, faith in God, and the guts to say: “Yes, there are things we do strongly believe in, that we are willing to live for, and yes, if necessary, to die for.” That is not “ideological purity.” It is simply what built this country and kept it great. — Ronald Reagan, 1977 CPAC speech

FRC Issues Inaccurate, Anti-Conservative Voter Guide

Bob Ellis

The Family Research Council, a pro-family organization I have supported for at least 20 years, emailed a South Dakota Voter Guide to their constituency in South Dakota Friday. While I would normally consider this a good thing, I was gravely disappointed in the voter guide because it misrepresented Mike Rounds' position on the issues.

South Dakota EB-5: Show Me the Money

Bob Ellis

David North at the Center for Immigration Studies has a new insightful article on how the "cash for visas" EB-5 program was handled in South Dakota. It seems someone in South Dakota was making a cash haul, especially compared to what goes on in other states.

Tea Party Express Whores Itself to RINO Establishment

Bob Ellis

We've come to a very sad and pathetic place in America and South Dakota, these days. There once was a time, not too long ago, when you could count on certain people and groups to do the right thing and hold the line against what was wrong. Not anymore.

Ruining RINO Rounds Run

Bob Ellis

Bloomberg did an interesting article on the only conservative in the South Dakota. U.S. Senate race, conservative independent Gordon Howie. Wouldn't it be cool to have another conservative--like Ted Cruz--in the U.S. Senate who actually wants to promote conservative values, and win?

Alabama’s Amendment 3 Could Jeopardize Gun Rights

Gina Miller

Jason Baker’s column from Wednesday, “Alabama Statewide Amendment 3 could be a slippery slope,” warns against the possible dangers to Alabamans’ right to keep and bear arms due to the wording of the proposed amendment to the state’s constitution. I want to concur with Mr. Baker’s sentiments and amplify the warning.

Will Republicans Have a Rout in the Senate?

Robert Romano

This is easily one of the most favorable political environments for Republican congressional prospects in quite a long time, particularly on the Senate side of the equation. Yet, if the polls are any indication, at the moment, the landscape appears more mixed.

Republican Hypocrites and Party Idolators

Bob Ellis

It looks like I'm far from the only one who is pretty disgusted with Election 2014. Erick Erickson at RedState asks why we should bother supporting Republicans ths year? And this situation has led me to ask myself whether I want to be a hypocrite and an idolator.

We Need a Leaner, Smarter Justice System

Ken Connor

We need a sensible, pragmatic, and effective sentencing process. As with so many failed policies hanging around America's neck like so many millstones, the current system is a result of politics being put ahead of practical wisdom. It is possible to be tough on crime, to protect the American people from the bad guys while using our limited resources wisely and effectively.

GOP Already Waving ObamaCare Surrender Flag

Bob Ellis

The "Republicans" aren't wasting any time in waving the ObamaCare surrender flag. They can't even wait to (hopefully) get control of the U.S. Senate before they start surrendering (Hint: they already started surrendering to ObamaCare, long ago).

Homosexual Movement Is Deadly To Our Natural Rights

Gina Miller

Perhaps the most diabolical advancement of Barack Obama’s tyrannical, anti-American agenda is in the area of the radical homosexual movement. From militant homosexual activists, we have seen a full-frontal assault on the rights of Christians and others who oppose the campaign to force on America the acceptance of special “rights” for sexual deviants and the destruction of the definition of marriage.

Stewardship of Liberty

Dale Pflug

Stewardship is defined as “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving”! Liberty is: “freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control; freedom from external or foreign rule; and freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc., power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.”

The Silence of the Lambs on the Right

Victor Sharpe

It is always a delicious moment when progressives (the current politically correct name for left-wingers, socialists, and Marxists) have to admit their falsehoods. Such is the case with the same progressives who relentlessly repeated the lie during the administration of President George W. Bush that no WMDs were found in Iraq.

"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
