It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it [the Constitution] a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution. — James Madison, Often called “the Father of the Constitution”

Alert: Gov Daugaard Support for Anti-Gun Legislators Exposed

May 25, 2012   ·   By   ·   1 Comments

Since South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard at a minimum thinks passage of his pet education bill is more important than saving innocent human life, protecting marriage and Second Amendment rights (assuming he doesn’t prefer RINOs to real Republicans outright), this is the latest mailer going out to educate the voters about Daugaard’s real priorities and the values of the RINOs he is trying to help continue pulling the wool over people’s eyes.

Interestingly, since Gov. Daugaard brought out into the open a few days ago this war RINOs have declared on the Republican base, even some of the more “moderate” websites and blogs across South Dakota are filled with outrage over what Daugaard has done in endorsing pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, pro-gun restriction liberals.  I am seeing comments from the heads of various county Republican Parties across the state who are livid that Daugaard has not only broken partisan where governors normally remain neutral, but that he is backing some of the worst examples of Republican values out there.

We’ll know in another week and a half whether Daugaard has helped or hurt the candidates he has endorsed.  The public at large is notoriously disengaged during primary season (which is how we often end up with these RINOs who are infesting our GOP and giving it a bad name), so it could make little difference either way.

However, if I had to bet, I’d say this is going to backfire bigtime on Gov. Daugaard and his favored ones, bringing attention to their liberal records that is the last thing they wanted…and a couple of those who have pretty good records may be hurt with “guilt by association” by being included in the governor’s “prize pen” with a bunch of flaming RINOs.

  • Bull

    To think that so many of us across the state had to listen to the BS comments at LDD about party unity and accepting these rinos if and when they vote 80% with the party platform.
    Who do you think is more riled up? The real Republicans at his efforts to protect his damn HB 1234 by endorsing these damn water carriers or the liberal & moderate “republicans” that he is supporting rinos?

Tensions have always been high in the Middle East, but within the last year we have seen an increasing presence of Russian influence and involvement.

My dear friends that presence and movement is all heading to somewhere very soon

Treaty of Penn with Indians

Keeping the Path Clear

William J. Federer

Indians along the Delaware River called themselves "Lenape," meaning in Algonquin "the people," and were in three clans: Turtle, Wolf and Turkey. William Penn, called "Miquon" meaning quill, made a peace treaty with Tamanend, chief of the Turtle clan, on JUNE 23, 1683, under an elm tree in what was to become Philadelphia. The Peace Treaty with the peaceful Quakers lasted over 70 years.


Republicans missing chance on education reform

Star Parker

Education is one area where blacks realize they need freedom from government control. The chronic failure of public schools to notably improve dismal test scores and high dropout rates of black children has made it clear to many black citizens of good will that there has got to be a better way. The Republican Party is supposed to be the party of freedom and limited government. Nowhere are these principles more needed than in education, and no community needs it more than blacks.At a time when our country and our poor communities are hurting so badly, any failure of leadership by those in the party of Lincoln is inexcusable.

AARP’s Liberal Bent

Bill Wilson

Once called the American Association of Retired Persons, the AARP is the largest grassroots organization nationwide with over 38 million members. The organization is incredibly politically active. Since 2007, AARP board members have given almost exclusively to Democrats, with more than 97 percent of donations going to Democrat candidates and left-leaning causes, totaling over $22,000. None was given to Republican candidates during that time.

"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
