"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Severson Loves Wasting Taxpayer Money

Because I am annoyed at Dan Severson’s staff pretending that Severson is the most conservative person to run for political office eevah!, I want to point out a couple quick things. We’ve spent [read: wasted] Billions of taxpayer dollars and had our taxes increased thanks to Severson’s support for choo choos. Just imagine him at the Federal level spending our money on boondoggles across the country.


  • Dan Severson authored the Northstar Rail legislation. (Source)
  • Dan Severson supported the MVST amendment that funneled money away from roads and to boondoggles like Central Corridor and Northern Lights Express. (Source)
  • Dan Severson supported the Twins Stadium (Source)
  • And my favorite the headline from his 2006 Legislative newsletter. “Severson helps approve near-record education funding increase
  • Another gem a 2003 Legislative piece. (Source)

“Rail has a place in our future.” He supports the development of the Northstar commuter rail line from St. Cloud to Minneapolis. Starting the project “will be tough in this economic environment,” Severson said, but the potential economic impact will be “a real positive.

  • Severson is a proud mass transit pusher. (Source)
  • Northstar alone costs Minnesota taxpayers $1 million a month in operating subsidies. (source)

This is just a few things that I found this morning using google. Feel free to look around yourselves folks. Don’t believe the press releases, research Severson and find out just exactly what kind of US Senator he would be if elected, cause frankly he may not have been as conservative as his campaign spinsters claim.
