It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be to-morrow. — James Madison, Federalist No. 62 1788

Election Headlines



Once Upon A Time …

JD Longstreet

How is it possible for a great American political party to be so out of touch with its constituents, so completely tone deaf to their wants and desires, so separated from the reality of the world around them? With citizens looped together into one vast globe encircling network of information and communication, how is it possible for the GOP to be so ill informed?

The Rapid City Journal today features five questions with South Dakota Gubernatorial Candidate Lora Hubbel. Here are a couple which highlight the deficiencies of the current governor, Dennis Daugaard.


America’s First Female President Won’t Be Hillary!

JD Longstreet

I have long thought that President Obama displayed more feminine attributes in his male persona that I am comfortable with. Note: I said "persona." Now, a persona is a personal facade, a mask, if you will, that one presents to the world. It is supposed to be the "person" you think yourself to be and would like others to believe you are.

Stace Nelson: Candidate for U.S. Senate from South Dakota

Republican Liberty Caucus Endorses Stace Nelson for U.S. Senate


A spirit of change and reform is sweeping the country.

More Empty Words from a South Dakota ‘Moderate’

Bob Ellis

RINO Mike Rounds made headlines recently with his call for "discipline" in Washington. What a pity his record reflects none of the "discipline" and conservative juice his rhetoric wants us to believe in.


Good News for South Dakota Conservatives


US Senate Candidate and State Representative Stace Nelson released a statement regarding the entrance of former State Senator Gordon Howie into the US Senate Race: I welcome my friend and fellow conservative Republican, Senator Gordon Howie, to the US Senate race.

He’s Not There!

Paula Dagnel

During the time of the early Church, when one believer would greet another, he would say “He is risen!” And the other believer would respond “He is risen, indeed!” I’d love to see that brought back to the present day; and if not every time we greet our fellow believer, at the very least, on this Easter weekend.


If Jesus Came to America, What Would He Find?

What If Satan Is Real?

Dave Daubenmire

Do you believe in God? Most Americans do. Nearly 93% of Americans believe in some type of “higher power.” The United States has the highest population of self-identified Christians in the world, nearly 250 million. That is 78% of Americans who identify themselves as believers in the Christian God. But if 78% of Americans believe in the Christian God why do so few believe in the Devil?


Bait, Hate & Switch

A.J. Castellitto

Less than a few prominent and influential organizations have been working very diligently to advance their power of persuasion. Most notable are SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) and RWW (RightWingWatch). Sure, they expose some legitimate hate groups, but lately it's been difficult to separate the haters from the baiters.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex) has just joined Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Dr. Ben Carson and Sarah Palin in endorsing Shannon.


"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
