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

The Republican Liberty Caucus believes Stace Nelson will be an important part of this movement for change, and we have given him our endorsement in the Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate in South Dakota.

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.


Isn’t It Time to Upset the Applecart…And the Status Quo?

Bob Ellis

There was a man once who had a major beef with the establishment, and refused to go along with the status quo--a status quo that fattened both the overtly immoral people of his country as well as the corrupt hypocrites of his own political and religious circle. His followers had a knack for getting on the wrong side of the power structure in both camps.


Good News for South Dakota Conservatives

JD Longstreet

Obamacare has not even begun to affect your life yet. The law is so large, so intrusive in your private life that you are just not going to believe the depth of government meddling that attends Obamacare.

Mitt Romney Won the 2012 Presidential Election by a Landslide

Romney's campaign ran strong until the end, when voters pushed him over the edge and into a landslide win that shocked the Obama team and raised cheers that could be heard around the world.


Food Stamps for Cash

"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
