Pat Powers goes after Cory Heidelberger:
God bless goofy liberal Cory Heidelberger for the laugh-out-loud comment of the day.
Today’s silly statement is in reference to Dan Lederman’s resignation this afternoon from the South Dakota State Legislature. Apparently, Cory has his panties in a twist because as he pronounces today, with Dan Lederman’s resignation, the Governor should just give Ann Tornberg the State Senate seat
The fact of the matter is that Tornberg lost three elections in a row, by five percentage points in 2010, 1 point in 2012, and in the latest election, by a margin of 12%, in a 56% to 44% rout. Somehow, I wouldn’t consider those “Solid” votes.
Pat is right, Cory Heidelberger cares more about power and control than he does democracy.
Later in the post Pat brings in SB 69:
Liberal Democrats are organizing to contest the election reform bill that was passed by the legislature to fix petition deadlines to facilitate military voting, to put all political parties on a level playing field in terms of the number of signatures gathered, and – here’s the part they really hate – it tightly restricts filing “placeholder” candidates – who have no intention of running or serving – that are only ran by political parties to allow more time to find a better candidate.
Again Pat is right to point out that the Democrats are only trying to gain power. But why is Pat arguing that the SDGOP does not have an even playing field today as they are the dominate political power base in South Dakota? SB 69 will only make it more difficult for independents and third parties, who already at a huge disadvantage to the two established parties, to have a chance for political success.
So in one breath Heidelberger disses democracy and says forget about the results of three election, put a Democrat into a Senate seat, and then he organizes a referendum on SB 69 for the sake of saving democracy. Heidelberger ties SB 69 to another act of democracy:
I agree with Superintendent Mitchell that the Rapid City Area School’s proposed five-year, $6-million-per-year opt-out is necessary for maintaining Rapid City School programs. Three arch conservative groups do not...
So I’m curious, Citizens for Liberty, Campaign for Liberty, and Citizens for Academic Transparency: when you get done challenging Rapid City’s opt-out, can you help us challenge the rules the Pierre Establishment is using to keep your allies off the ballot and out of elected office?
So should conservatives support a guy who spends much of his time issuing false cyber attacks toward "arch conservatives"? And I am to just forget about being banned? That answer depends on whether we want to fight within the SDGOP, or do we want to build a coalition of independents, moderate Democrats (unlike Cory and his gang of intolerant revolutionaries), and true conservative Republicans. If it is the later, then we do need to support the referendum on SB 69. Perhaps in the process we can provide some common sense to those who are being indoctrinated with Cory's far-left propaganda.
