In the supposed state of nature, all men are equally bound by the laws of nature, or to speak more properly, the laws of the Creator. — Samuel Adams, letter to the Legislature of Massachusetts, 17 January 1794


Gordon Howie Filing Over 5,000 Petitions for U.S. Senate

April 28, 2014   ·   By   ·   4 Comments


April 28, 2014

In just over 2 weeks, more than 5,000 supporters have signed my petitions to run for US Senate.

Voters are looking for a candidate of principle.  If Mike Rounds manages to slip through the primary with his big campaign war chest, he is in for a surprise from the people of South Dakota.

Mike Rounds was Governor during the 6 years I served in the State House, and the State Senate.

The record shows that I opposed his “revenue enhancements” (tax increases).

The record shows that I was the only Republican Senator who voted against his budget in 2010, because it continued to spend more money and make government bigger.

The record shows that I introduced the Health Care Freedom Act to stop Obamacare in South Dakota, and that Governor Rounds sent his staff out to twist arms to kill it.

Our coalition of Pro gun, Tea Party, Family values and fiscal conservative voters can win.  I believe we will win.  South Dakotans will not have to hold their nose and vote for a government-growing candidate who will cave and compromise.

On tax increases, expanding the budget, and Obamacare, the record will show that I have stood on principle.  Voters can depend on me to fight against government-growing politicians in both parties.

The claim by Mike Rounds that he is a “conservative Republican” has been openly debunked by the Senate Conservative Fund and other conservative organizations because of his tax and spend, government-growing policies. Voters and conservative organizations are ready to provide large support for a genuine conservative.  If Rounds survives the Republican primary, voters would have to choose between three liberal-minded, big government candidates.  By filing these petitions today, we are giving conservative Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and yes, conservative Democrats as well a real choice in November.

‘LGBT’: ‘T’ as in Tyranny

J. Matt Barber

Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.


Kansas Senate race is a national election

Star Parker

Former Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neill’s political wisdom that "All politics is local" has been a staple in political thinking for many years. But the truth of the matter is that, regarding elections for national office, politics is really, today, a national business.

President Obama

He’s Got Us & There’s No Shame in his Game!

A.J. Castellitto

Our founding fathers viewed government as a necessary evil. The Constitution was designed to protect and preserve the individual rights of the person. The founders ultimately wanted to form a government they could protect themselves from. An essential aspect of preserving individual liberty is too often overlooked in our day.


Govt Orders Ministers: Counterfeit Marriage or Jail


Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples. City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines.


What Real Republicans Look Like

Bob Ellis

This is what a pair of real Republicans look like. From South Dakota's District 35, Chip Campbell and Lynne DiSanto. Unapologetically standing for limited government, low taxes, traditional marriage, the Second Amendment and local control.


"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
