Conservatives across South Dakota have watched the South Dakota legislative session with great interest over the past month…and have been very disappointed in many areas. While there have been some good votes that reflect the good conservative values that make up the Republican Party platform, too many times we’ve seen Republicans talk, act and vote like Democrats. So a group of conservatives from across the state have put together their thoughts and sent them to all 80 Republicans in the South Dakota Legislature.
Two weeks ago, “Republicans” in the South Dakota House State Affairs Committee chose the easy road and voted down HB 1088, a bill to nullify ObamaCare in South Dakota. At a time when the federal government has drastically overreached its constitutional or moral authority, this entire committee chose to do nothing about the unconstitutional assault of ObamaCare. Tomorrow, the same committee has a chance to get it right with HB 1165. They need to hear from YOU, South Dakota.
Maybe the warm fuzzies came over the Muslim Brotherhood within the last few years? At first glance their official website, Ikhwahnweb.com, you would think “peace and love” were key components to the MB. A beautiful Egyptian little girl’s face adorns the heading with the word, “peace,” after all. You can even click on their statements and see all of the condemnations of violence, repugnance of Al-Qaeda, and commitments to social justice and reform. Look deeper, however, and you’ll find support for Sharia, preparation to fight the enemies of Islam, and an expectation of quiet acceptance.
Europe is really starting to get it. After decades of running around with their heads up…well, with their heads full of liberal rubbish, they are finally starting to face the fact that liberalism is nothing but a bunch of feel-good ideas that just don’t work in the real world. Case in point is multiculturalism, or the idea that a people, a society can hang onto radically different beliefs and values and still be “on the same team.” British Prime Minister David Cameron is the latest European leader to get it.
I realize that every generation of Americans has bemoaned the music of the younger generation, and there is a reason for it. It’s because our society devolves; it doesn’t evolve. As we have moved through time, even though knowledge and technology have increased, there has been a steady process of degeneration in our culture and morality and the minds and hearts of the people.
