Those nations are doomed to death who bury, in the corruption of criminal desire, the awful sense of an existing God, cast off the consoling hope of immortality, and seek refuge from despair in the dreariness of annihilation. Terrible, irrevocable doom! loudly pronounced, frequently repeated, strongly exemplified in the sacred writings, and fully confirmed by the long record of time. — Gouverneur Morris


South Dakota Absentee Voting Begins Friday

April 19, 2012   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant is reminding voters that tomorrow, Friday, April 20th, marks the start of absentee balloting for the 2012 primary election on June 5th.

“South Dakotans have widely embraced absentee voting as a matter of convenience,” Gant said. “In the 2010 general election, we had 411 members of the military vote overseas. However, we had an additional 63,339 South Dakota voters cast their ballots through mailed and in-person absentee balloting. This comprised 19.71% of all ballots cast in the 2010 general election.”

According to primary data from the 2010 primary election, 11,651 or 11.3% of voters cast absentee ballots during the last June primary.

“From reports I am receiving from County Auditors across South Dakota, current absentee requests are light, but as we get closer to the election, experience shows us that the pace picks up greatly. Many people decide to cast their vote through absentee balloting as a matter of convenience to avoid lines at the polls,” Gant said.

“If a person believes they may not be available to vote on election day, they can vote at their County Auditor’s office or visit to complete an application for an absentee ballot,” Gant noted.

South Dakota EB-5: Show Me the Money

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.


Not Even Kings (or Presidents) Are Above the Law

Bob Ellis

Did you know that the Old Testament kings in Israel were not a law unto themselves? That they were under the authority of a law higher than themselves? Did you know that presidents today are under a higher law? Why do we allow some to behave as if they were a law unto themselves?

Inscription on the U.S. Dept of Justice Building

Law vs Anti-Law

Dr. Robert R. Owens

America was founded upon the principles of Natural Law. The Progressives led us into the realms of Legal Positivism. The vast government apparatus they have constructed has progressed into a dystopian fantasy land beyond law where faceless bureaucrats in an alphabet soup of departments create regulations with the force of law from thin air. Such is the journey from tyranny to tyranny in ten generations. Such is the journey from law to anti-law.

On Course to Never Pay Off National Debt

Robert Romano

We’re more likely to default on our national debt than to ever pay it off. The national debt has increased every single year since 1958 to its current level. Who really believes that trend will be reversed?


"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
