“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)

Franken Is In Trouble

Monday, January 6th, 2014

For those thinking there is no way Senator Al Franken can lose, here’s proof you are wrong. The Strib is already bending over backwards to mislead voters of his Progressive Agenda.

Did Al Franken really cast the ’60th vote’ for Obamacare?

He was in fact the 60th vote. The leftwing power grab of Democrats resulted in a Republican winning the special election in Massachusetts. This story is junk journalism and why we have so many empty suits and pantsuits in Washington.

We would not have Obamacare if not for Al Franken stealing the 2008 election recount.

MNSure’s Unreasonable Search and Seizure – I Plead The 4th

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

There is a new trend in Government, data is collected and shared with law enforcement and the IRS. Don’t worry though, its “just in case” you break the law. Of course this runs amuck of the Constitution, but that document is completely ignored now by politicians and agents of Government.

4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

At the Federal level, the SAFE Act does a similar thing, including sending your finger prints and an FBI background check to the Department of Justice where it will be stored – just in case.

I saw a story on Drudge this morning about Maryland’s “marketplace” and how personal data is “protected” – more properly put – used to implicate you in a crime.

Maryland’s Health Connection, the state’s Obamacare marketplace, has been plagued by delays in the first days of open enrollment.  If users are able to endure long page-loading delays, they are presented with the website’s privacy policy, a ubiquitous fine-print feature on websites that often go unread. Nevertheless, users are asked to check off a box that they agree to the terms.

The policy contains many standard statements about information automatically collected regarding Internet browsers and IP addresses, temporary “cookies” used by the site, and website accessibility.  However, at least two conditions may give some users pause before proceeding.

The first is regarding personal information submitted with an application for those users who follow through on the sign up process all the way to the end.  The policy states that all information to help in applying for coverage and even for making a payment will be kept strictly confidential and only be used to carry out the function of the marketplace.  There is, however, an exception: “[W]e may share information provided in your application with the appropriate authorities for law enforcement and audit activities.”

Obamacare is a Federal law requiring ‘marketplaces’ so chances are every state will be the same….. MNSure is Mark Dayton’s version of Obamacare, I wonder what it does with data. Via MNSure’s terms and conditions page (aka what you must agree with to comply with this federal mandate. (AKA involuntary search and seizure)

With whom may we share information?

We will only share information about you as needed and as allowed or required by law. We may share your information with agencies or persons who need the information to do their jobs, such as MNsure employees, investigators and auditors, community assistance partners you are working with, law enforcement officials, other state, federal and local governmental agencies, your health care insurer, agency, managed care organization or others who pay for your care, and anyone else authorized by law to receive the information

What happened to the 4th Amendment?

I know defenders of Obama will quickly point out that most websites include similar language, but Obamacare is a mandate. Its involuntary (unless you helped elect Obama and Democrats and are owed a political favor so are granted a waver).

I guess Nancy Pelosi was right, we Congress did have to pass the bill before we could read the bill.

Just a reminder to everyone: Senator Al Franken was the deciding vote in passing Obamacare. Upon completion of his successful theft of the 2008 election recount, he became the 60th vote in the US Senate giving Democrats the ability to break a GOP filibuster on this disastrous law.

Democrat Polling Firm Finds MNGOP In Trouble – A Case In Media Bias & Laziness

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

I’m sure you have seen this being repeated the last week: Bachmann in trouble, Franken Way ahead of unknown challengers……

The poll done by the Democrat polling firm PPP is worth about as much as a DFL campaign pledge.

First off, it was an automated poll, meaning: press 1 if you agree, press 2 if you disagree….. so short fused people hung up so its not a great sample base. Secondly, as is usually done in Minnesota, Republicans are extremely undersampled.

You have to dig deep into the crosstabs, but you can see why the poll shows things so poorly for Republicans.

If you are a Democrat, press 1. If a Republican, press 2. If you are an independent or identify with another party, press 3.

Democrat ……………………………………………….. 38%

Republican ……………………………………………… 27%

Independent/Other …………………………………… 35%

Franken – Coleman; 42% DFL / 42% GOP

Dayton – Emmer: 40% DFL / 40% GOP

Obama – Romney: 54% / 45%

Republicans have been receiving over 40% of the statewide votes for countless elections, yet the Democrats polls always undersample us? Why? Because 2 years of polls saying that Democrats are way ahead end up becoming reality when people don’t want to waste their vote if they are convinced the Republican has no chance.

It also makes it easier to pressure the media here to ignore the negative news stories and real world radical leftwing agenda of major Democrats like Klobuchar, Franken, Ellison, and Dayton.

So Jim Graves is going to spend the next month of 2 bragging about this poll, but the fact is the poll is only close because they asked more Democrats for their opinions.

The Grassroots Case for Phoenix – Update – Update2

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Update: Please don’t get distracted thinking that I’m a huge supporter of Phoenix or anything, this post is about control and who has it. The grassroots controlled party OR people who look at us as an obstacle.

I was at the CD4 GOP convention Saturday. Well, I visited CD3, 5, and 4. But ended the day at CD4. Near the end, Pat Anderson announced that the MNGOP has already decided to hand over its database operations and ownership to outside group(s), that everyone running for state leadership agreed and that it was going to happen. She said this is exactly what the DFL does and its time for the MNGOP to do so as well. - I’d heard the rumors about this, and have even supported the idea in the past.

The idea is supposed to be along the line of “The Colorado Model” where business, owners, big donors, or other interest groups or associations, etc  (like the Chamber & MN Biz Partnership) and/or “Super PACs” take over  and run the database. They build a system (or buy one), clean up the data, and allow people to use it. Its a good model if you have a singular goal, or agreed upon terms. It works very well for the DFL because their base knows that a Democrat winning is the most important thing. We as Republicans, have more principled values, and winning isn’t always all that matters. Many believe some if not most Republicans in public office are no different than Democrats.

When it comes time for the DFL GOTV machine to kick into gear, they push straight ticket no ‘ifs, and’s or but’s about it. They don’t moan and kvetch over this guy or that gal that voted this way once or didn’t pay their BPOU the respect it thought it deserved. Nope, for the DFL, the only thing that matters is that (D) after the name on the ballot and their activists, volunteers, and GOTV goon squad will fight tooth and nail for each and every voter to cast their vote for the Democrat, no questions.

MNGOP activists don’t work that way. While we need to learn from many of the DFL’s tactics in operations, our activists are not lemmings or slaves. If you take a good honest look, the DFL is an anti-grassroots party. Their conventions have checks and balances built in to prevent “getting it wrong” and if they do, their endorsed candidate usually loses in the Primary anyways to who ever the Unions want. Heck, they have quotas to get elected Delegate, walking sub caucuses designed to derail proceedings from the floor of taking control of the business before the body.

But enough of why I am glad I am not a slave in the DFL party.

The 3rd party database model for the MNGOP is probably going to have a buy in process. So if a candidate wants to have the data, there will be a fee or commitment made. I’m not sure if that would be financial, or pledge, or what. But just because BPOU Chair from SD99 says so and so is good so send them the password (like we currently have), isn’t going to fly when someone else owns that data now.

There is apparently a growing desire to go with a 3rd party database  in the MNGOP. Meanwhile, there’s also chest thumping about fighting June Primary because it would allow the Chamber and rich people to undermine the “grassroots” endorsement process. 

Do you spot the huge problem that I do?

On the one hand we want to hand over control and ownership of our biggest resource (data) but on the other we don’t want to trust these very same people in candidate selection.

Why is this a problem? In the DFL, if a local BPOU or CD isn’t doing what it is told to and the DFL needs that District for their plan, they send in the unions or send the work through an outside group. One of their local volunteer leaders isn’t cutting it or doesn’t like the candidate, in comes the paid professional staffer to run local operations.

While I see the merits of that strategy when it comes to winning at all costs, I know that MNGOP activists would scream ‘top down’ and say that you are supposed to walk on the green side of sod not the roots. (attempt to be funny and clever. FAIL)

On a statewide basis this could work, I do believe we GOP activists have to approach endorsements with a much more, just let the primary sort it out” approach. Sorry, but 2 duds in a row and well, fool me once….. I do fully support the endorsement process for Congressional & Legislative races. Its just that a contest of “last man standing” (how I explain the Caucus/endorsement/Delegate selection process) to have 2000 people decide who is best to appeal to 2 million Minnesotans is proving its own faults. The only people to have had any electroal success statewide in Minnesota have run in spite of the objections of the grassroots, that can’t be ignored.

Here’s an example of why the 3rd party model has serious flaws.

DFL Senator Terry Bonnoff is supported by right leaning groups that are likely to have control of the new 3rd party owned database Pat Anderson mentioned on Saturday. The MN Chamber endorsed DFLer Bonoff in 2010 over Republican Liberty Caucus Chair Norann Dillion and again in 2012 over GOP grassroots endorsed David Gaither.

If you are naive enough to think that the people “allegedly” ready to spend their 3rd party war chests to fix our data problem, are going to give a crap if the Executive Committee from SD99 hates the chosen candidate…. Heck, GOP State Rep. Ernie Leidiger endorsed the DFL opponent for GOP Sen. Ortmann. That kind of crap doesn’t work in the business world, and chances are, the business community and professionals are not going to have much patience for the usual grassroots infighting. They will see it as unproductive and quickly solve the problem, and that won’t be finding a new candidate. That will be cutting the problem out of the loop.

Going forward, if the MN Chamber or 3rd party entity,  controls access to the database, what happens to the GOP endorsed candidate or primary winner is different then theirs? Who gets the data? On whose authority? And what if the BPOU doesn’t agree? Do they pull support or access if our guy beats their gal because they know our guy just can’t and/or shouldn’t win?

Think about this folks. You wanna hand over “the data” to the very people you don’t trust to pick the candidates. What happens when grassroots activists pick a candidate other than the Chamber does? Who gets the data? Look at it from their point of view, they have a vested interest in winning elections, not our principles or platform.

Phoenix is far from perfect. I get that. But the party owns it. The party controls it. And the party is responsible and held accountable by the grassroots.

Now let’s get in to the case for why we should stay with Phoenix.

We own it, for better or worse, but *WE* own it. The Party owns it and everything in it. No one can tell us what we can and cannot do with it, and more importantly, no one can tell us what we can do “to” it.

Short of someone finding about $1.5 million dollars laying around give to the party to buy a brand new system, to replace all our VOIP phones, servers, websites, and other things, (This is above and beyond the current debt) the only other options are the 3rd party “Chamber” model” or the RNC system. I’ve gone over some of the bad points above on the 3rd party model so let’s look at the RNC system.

I believe the RNC system is no longer called Voter Vault, its something like Data Center or what not. But here’s the big rub, scrapping Phoenix and going tot he RNC system doesn’t remove the Phoenix budget line item from the party’s budget. From what I understand, we don’t just plug in to some server in DC. Its a DC based system but run locally. Basically they wrote the software, and we have to run it here locally.  We would still have to run and maintain that data here. (Just like we are right now.) It is shared back and forth, but we would still need staff, servers, resources, and money to run the RNC system for just Minnesota.

The fact of the matter is, in some states or select Congressional Districts, yes the RNC helps and pitches in, but given the condition of the Republican Party of Minnesota compared to the footing of the DFL’s and the recent electoral calamities that we have put forth for statewide officer, the RNC wisely won’t waste resources here on a losing proposition. Nor should they in my opinion. They shouldn’t subsidize  poorly run and performing state parties. Its time for the grassroots to share some blame in our state party’s last 4 years. Everyone is great at pointing fingers until they get in front of a mirror.  I’ll save that for a later time, but the point is, we elected Carey, Sutton, and Brodkorb as well as endorsed Emmer & Bills. The results speak for themselves. So does that ash heap over there known as the party.

Frankly I am getting sick and tired of fighting over who to blame for what went right and what went wrong.

Unless Joe Mauer retires from Baseball to run against Mark Dayton, the RNC & Governor’s association are not going to even take a phone call from Minnesota. And if we still haven’t had anyone begin to start talking to the general public and not focussed entirely on GOP Delegates, until next May or June after the endorsement, they will block our phone number because that’s too late.

And even if Matt Birk does run against Al Franken and we have the name ID battle on the same page, the NRSC & RNC are not going to even consider spending a dime in Minnesota. Their logic firmly grounded in the 2012 US Senate results where the grassroots candidate had the worst election performance in modern history for a statewide candidate from a major party, and there have still not been one single set of reforms or at least mea culpa’s over the condition of the party or quality of the candidate. (And yes, I am looking at you grassroots)

In my opinion, the notion of “I hate Phoenix because it doesn’t do what I want so anything has to be better”, it is a lateral move at best, but one we would regret forever. 

Because the chance of a Republican winning statewide in 2014 appear to be, logically, somewhere between slim and fat chance. Its funny, because that’s about the same odds as us getting a bunch of big names in for fundraisers or for RNC staffers and national money to be airdropped in. So if we think that the RNC system we agreed to use, should be changed to do something that works for a BPOU or even if we at the State level want it to be able to perform some new specific function, the RNC isn’t going to change it just for us. Its a one size fits all solution and that’s a problem. Minnesota is a unique state.

Admittedly, I never seen or ever used the RNC system so maybe it is perfect. But what if it isn’t? What if it can’t do everything that Phoenix (whether it does it well or not) currently does for us? What if they don’t allow every single endorsed candidate to use it? During GOTV, I may or may not have seen  local volunteers deciding to add local candidates to GOTV calls. Some may have even  written the names of their County Commissioners into the script, or strayed from it in ways that would be, let’s just say, hard to explain to certain people. Some locals like to do things their own way, and more power to them, but when you buy in to someone else’s system, you work for them now. Its everything on the RNC’s terms. Go ask Bill Paulsen to tell you about the RNC… in case you missed his stump speech.

No matter whether we go 3rd party or RNC on a new database, we’d lose grassroots control and make the Republican Party at all levels virtually useless.

No more meaningful endorsements, no more database. Well what good is a state party with a 3rd party owned database who also controls the candidate selection? Do you think they will care if you endorsed someone else for Mayor, County Commissioner, or State House than they did? Do you think they would have left your phones on, if they knew you were going off script? No, they’d shut you down from DC. Your phones would go dead on GOTV weekend. There’s no incentive for big donors to give anymore. The State Party and all its affiliates would shrivel and die because, unfortunately, a platform is not enough to stand on let alone run a statewide organization on.

Plus, do you really think that they will actually give the grassroots access to the system? I’m guessing it would be read only and you won’t even be able to make changes if you find out someone is really a Democrat, but is marked as a Republican. Either way, they will have delays in updating as chances are it will be verified first. If you think Phoenix is slow, just wait until Minnesota is the lowest priority on that RNC data guy’s list and he  has a stack from every other purple or swing state ahead of Blue State Minnesota’s.

Just think about the logistics for a while folks because this will have lasting effects on the party. While we may enjoy conventions and monthly meetings, they will serve no real purpose. The people with the power and control will no longer be at those meetings.

So, on to the case for Phoenix. 

Since we own Phoenix, we can control not only who has access (as in candidates & BPOUs) but also how it works and what it can do. If there’s a problem or glitch, we can fix it. If it doesn’t do something we need it to, we can fix that. That’s something that will not be possible with the outsourcing options. Yes, it takes money to run our own database, and no it hasn’t been done that well. But just like we hastily and for suspect reasons went to Phoenix, change for change’s sake is not a good enough reason.

Phoenix isn’t perfect, it may not even be good, but its the best option we have to keeping grassroots control of our party. Its going to take work. Its going to take money and effort to get it better and the data better. But, that’s going to have to happen anyways. Someone will have to fix the data, the system, the question is, after its done, who has control of it?

The grassroots, or the people we are supped to be afraid of taking away our endorsement process?

Update 2: I’ve talked to a number of people today.  Contrary to what Ms. Anderson said, this is NOT a done deal and  most people are wondering who she was talking. Maybe this will make them realize that they shouldn’t trust her, but hey, that’s just me.

But there is something happening. And it has to. The question is about who controls controls access and how. Its become clear today that there are different tiers involved, and not everyone understand they aren’t at the head table.

I thought I had the full picture, but did not. Still don’t, but the more I learn the less worried I am. That being said, its a major change and people should be aware of what is happening.

Chose your party leaders wisely,.
I trust Keith Downey, Kelly Fenton, & Chris Fields to make the right call at the State Executive Committee level.
 

Thou Shalt Be Disenfranchised – MN Election Scam Exposed

Monday, November 19th, 2012

There’s a glimpse into the scam that is Minnesota’s election laws. Do you know that it is illegal to make your ballot in any such way as to make it identifiable. So like if you write your name in for a Judge or Soil and Dog Catcher race so you can go back and see if your ballot really counted? Yeah, that’s illegal. So is posting a picture of your ballot online or on the Facebook. Don’t do that!

Well, in the closest Minnesota election in quite some time, we see a good reason why I think ballots should be traceable. I believe there is stuffing of ballot boxes. A few votes here and there, those over votes, ext etc. Well, if there was a way to trace the ballot to the voter, we could prove it. But with our fraudster friendly laws, there is absolutely no way, especially when you have a Chief Election official who refuses to match the number of signatures with the number of actual ballots…. but I digress.

In the election of Rep. Franson (R) and challenger Cunniff (D) you have a slim margin of just 1 vote. Its in recount and litigation phase now and guess what. There was an error on election day and some voters were given the wrong ballots. So now 35 ballots will be drawn out at … (AHEM) “random”.

That means people who cast their votes will have their votes erased. They don’t get a redo and due to an error, their right to vote was thrown in the garbage.

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Minnesota’s closest legislative race is headed for court before it reaches a probable recount.

First-term Republican Rep. Mary Franson currently leads Democratic challenger Bob Cunniff by a single vote. But there was a counting error that could alter the margin. Douglas County auditor treasurer Charlene Rosenow says some voters received the wrong ballots on Election Day so 35 ballots are likely to be pulled at random before a pre-recount tally is certified.

Franson has asked a judge to get involved. A hearing on the lawmaker’s request was set for Monday afternoon.

Recounts are automatic when the difference between candidates is less than one-half of one percentage point. The manual recount is slated to start on Nov. 28.

Democrats have a 73-61 majority pending a reversal in the Franson-Cunniff race.

How would you like to be one of the people who is going to have their ballot thrown away?

This is why I believe we should not only have our own names or some identification on our ballots, not to mention run offs in Minnesota. Not the Communist instant run off voting, but in a case like this, rather than waste all this time and money recounting and suing, you have another election on the first Tuesday after a Monday in December between Franson & Cunniff.

Whenever anyone doesn’t get the 50% +1, you have a run off. Just think if in 2010 what would have happened if the December election (shudder) between Dayton and Emmer head to head with out any distractions or spoilers. Another examples is the 2008 Fanken Coleman race where 10′s of millions were spent on the recount and court battles, the process took months and months, imagine if we just had a run off 30 days later.

Just some humble proposals to be thrown out and fall on the deaf and defiant ears of the new ruling class of Minnesota.

How Did Norm Coleman Lose By Just 300 Votes In 2008?

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Listen to last night’s Late Debate and Corey Sax displays the mindset perfectly.

I’ll have more later today or this weekend. It was a truly enlightening display of how the “liberty” folks entering the Republican Party don’t want that anchor around their voting hand of, you know, having to, dare I say it, vote for Republicans.

In the interview he said Tom Emmer wasn’t good enough for him…..

I’ll edit this clip out and pst later…. Truly priceless.

Tim Pawlenty’s Conservative Renaissance – Fleebagging Before It Was Cool

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Renaissance |?ren??säns; -?zäns|- a revival of or renewed interest insomething

In 2008, Republicans picked the worst possible candidate to represent the party’s conservative desires and principles of limited government to run against Barrack Obama.

I know a lot of you like Tm Pawlenty, some out of genuine fondness others due to your paychecks being the result of his aspirations. Its fine, I understand he has his pros, but I come from a school of thought that you have to grade people on merits, not accomplishments, and never on what they “want” people to know about them (the spin). Their records but more importantly how they handled the responsibilities they had, are the true test of what they will actually be like in office.

I ask an honest question in hopes of honest introspection and analysis from you and the media.  Why is Tim Pawlenty being given a free pass on his abandonment of Minnesota and the MNGOP?

He spent more time in the last 15 months campaigning for Republicans in the other 49 states than he did in his 8 years as the Head of the Republican Party in Minnesota?

Can you imagine what Minnesota would actually look like politically if Tim Pawlenty was concerned with what Republicans in his own state cared about rather than cranking up his name ID nationally and getting Republicans elected everywhere but Minnesota?

The electoral accomplishments in the 2010 Minnesota Legislative elections happened in spite of Tim Pawlenty. And you can’t help but wonder if his own seat changing party hands has something to do with him fleebagging on us during the lameduck last Legislative session. He had one foot out the door when the heat in the kitchen was highest.

The true test of a candidate’s principles is if you would be upset if a Democrat supported a policy or signed a bill. On a ton of huge issues, Tim Pawlenty let down conservatives in his state who worked very hard to get him elected at the expense of other Republicans.

It was only after the era of Tim Pawlenty that Republicans regained the House majority they had when he first got elected. I’ve spent a lot of my blogging time highlighting how Minnesota came up on the short end of the stick when it came down to Pawlenty or the Republican party as a whole, on this here blog.

Is Minnesota and more importantly, the Republican Party of Minnesota better off after 8 years of Tim Pawlenty?

My answer is no. What’s yours?

Note: Who was the 1st major name to glom on to John McCain in 2008? Tim Pawlenty

Meet The Real Tim Pawlenty On Energy

The Link That Made My Head Explode – TPaw Jumps The Shark

The Era Of Tim Pawlenty Is Over – Big Government Republicans Need Not Apply

Oh heck, I created a special category for it. McPlenty. Browse away to see the critical side of view on Tim Pawlenty.

Lord knows you won’t see it from very many other people. I get a lot of crap for my haranguing of Tim Pawlenty, but at least I am consistent. Which is something Tim Pawlenty, his record, his cheerleaders and defenders, and his recent rhetorical renaissance can’t.

Audit The SOS

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

If you’ve ever been through an audit by a government entity, you know that they don’t except any gaps in documentation nor do they tolerate anything that can’t be easily verified.

But when it comes to elections in Minnesota, its best guess and fingers crossed.

I think it times to look at serious reforms to our election system and process. First of which would be to Amend the Constitution to make the SOS an appointed position with confirmation by the Senate. This would remove any chances of too clever by half Progressives who are part of a grand scheme to fix elections.

What’;s the best way to fix an election? Make damn sure there is no paper trail for them to follow.

If you sent Revenue Department Auditors to audit the election system, they’d be throwing red flag after red flag…. if it was a private business. But since its Government, no one dares to care if the numbers don’t add up and after a hard fought election, here we are unsure of what really happened.

Audit the Election!

Sounds somewhat like Iron Range Election Officials

Take a look at this and ask yourself in Northern Minnesota’s surprising election anomalies may be far more then human error. (this post was actually written 4 days into the future. :D

Its A Turnout Election, Stupid

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Here’s a couple of great posts from True North today.

Follow The Dayton Money

Includes a great chart showing exactly how the big government lefties are able to smear Tom Emmer non-stop.

Concerning Polls From 3 Weeks Out

This one has the historic polling for MN Governor’s races for the last few cycles. It shows how widely wrong the media gets it.

Don’t forget, the big government bailout left’s only chance to win is to attack Emmer. Emmer has the message and plan that most Minnesotans want the next Governor to implement. The only way their Government bailout sugar daddy can win is by demonizing Emmer and demoralizing the GOP base from showing up.

To an extent, its working. Please make sure you send these links to all your friends and family members. This is a turnout election. If everyone who believes in limited government and conservative solutions turns out and votes for Emmer, he wins, if we have a split base and some of you fall for the DFL ploy of Emmer kicks kittens and vote for Horner, you will give us Governor Dayton. (A lot of you voted for Bakley in 2008 and gave us Sen. Franken.)

Anyone who doesn’t vote for Emmer who has political views anywhere to the right of Stalin is an idiot. The Dayton slushfund and the allies in the biased MN press are doing everything they can to split our base. The point of the 3rd party in MN is to play spoiler and the media gives them all the free press in the world to split the GOP and limited government vote.

Please folks, now is the time to show up and volunteer. We can overcome the tens of millions that Dayton and his minions have throw against Tom Emmer, but we need to work. These posts above are useful info to show that the press is trying to project the results by demoralizing us. the chart of where the attack ad money is really coming from should help your friends who are swayed by deceit and lies figure out that the ads are not based in truth, but are the nastiest of tactics. Saying anything to get elected is the sign of a politician who cannot be trusted.

Please go here and find out where and how to help make sure Emmer wins.
