Republican U.S. House candidate Kristi Noem and her “Road to Restore South Dakota’s Voice” bus tour came to Rapid City this afternoon at the Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn, drawing more than 400 people according to hotel staff and GOP counts. Accompanying her on the bus was Republican South Dakota Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard who is running for governor against Democrat Scott Heidepriem, Daugaard’s running mate Matt Michels, and Senator John Thune (R-SD) who is running unopposed this year.
The scene is Beijing, China in 2030. Why do great nations fall? The ancient Greeks…the Roman Empire…the British Empire…and the United States of America.

Americans who are Christians and are old enough to vote have some responsibilities tomorrow on Election Day. Don’t stay home and ignore them. Get out and do it. Brush up on what God says about human life, marriage, family, political corruption, property rights and more. Then brush up on where the candidates stand on these issues. Then go vote for the ones who best reflect God’s values.

Will the recently awakened millions who’ve campaigned to get their country back have anything to show for all their efforts?
The presidents of three of South Dakota’s public universities want to build some new sports facilities and the Board of Regents have put the skids to their requests–at least for the time being. And rightfully so. What got my goat in all of this was that their students might be tapped for some of the needed money for those construction projects as well. With South Dakota university students graduating with the largest debt in the nation, isn’t it foolhardy to pump them and their folks for a few more bucks?
