SD GOP 5 Year Plan; Eliminate ALL Democrats in the State Legislature

IMAG3795

State Legislators Soli, Buhl & Hawks at Democratic Forum, 2/13/2015.

While I heard many crazy things today, like certain Republican legislators calling homosexuals mentally ill and should seek treatment for their ‘gay’ illness, one thing that sparked my interest was the Republicans attempt at total state domination. Ironically, their plan to eliminate ALL Democratic legislators by 2020 coincides with re-districting and the Census.

I don’t think they will achieve this goal, but it is a very scary proposal. Debate and discussion between opposing parties helps to create good legislation, and the proof is in the pudding. The Republicans now have a super majority in Pierre, and just look at the lousy legislation they are proposing now, wait until they control the whole legislature. Looks like I better get my reservation in for a moving van.

When you believe in party politics, isn’t eliminating the other side always the goal? I’m sure the repubs said the same shit when they were in the minority.

Yes it’s ruthless and pathetic, but both sides do it. End the party politics.

Arrogance is bliss. They are much too confident.

“Looks like I better get my reservation in for a moving van.”

Happy to provide recommendations. Movers too. 🙂

South Dakotans, in my six years of living there, were almost without exception nice, hard-working people with a terrible case of Stockholm syndrome when it comes to politics. I think most of it traces back to the geographical and cultural isolation of the state and a pretty considerable distrust of “outsiders”, but that’s a long discussion for another time.

I didn’t know the “SDGOP mafia” still existed? I thought they dissipated after the death of their leader. 😉
