This Canadian has a profound insight of our mid-term election results!

This Canadian has a profound insight of our mid-term election results!

By Marc Patrone, Sun News network

America is on the edge of a second revolutionary war.

It may not be bloody like the first one, but it will be hugely important.

Some might suggest it’s more a civil war, but with liberty and the constitution hanging in the balance, revolution seems a more appropriate comparison.

There are no British troops or monarchy to fight this time.

The ‘shot heard around the world’ wasn’t fired from a musket, it came from the ballot box.

Americans have taken a long hard look at the kind of fundamental transformation promised by Barack Obama and the Democrat party and they want nothing to do with it.

The Republican victory suggests Americans are more than just unhappy with the direction the country is headed.

Such was the devastating scope of the electoral debacle for the Democrats that it appears Americans are mobilizing for war against the Obama agenda.

They are only now truly beginning to understand the threat to liberty he presents.

What’s so deeply troubling, albeit not entirely unexpected, is the disdain, arrogance and contempt  with which this president dismissed the results.

“So to everyone who voted, I want you to know I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too,” he said.

Meaning what?

He seems to be suggesting that by not voting, the majority of Americans agree with what he’s doing.

Terrifying? You bet.

It’s taken six years, but the ugly truth about Obama’s contemptuous attitudes toward the people who elected him twice is becoming all too evident.

Lame duck? Guess again.

The man probably realizes that a chance to remake the U.S. according to his far left view of the world may not come around again.

His time is running out. Obama’s ‘nuclear’ option is amnesty for millions of illegals.

He expects those illegals will become dependents of the state, thus stacking the electoral deck in favour of Democrats by promising the new ‘wards of the state’ a suite of entitlements.

The depth of this destructive agenda is clear, rip off trillions in wealth (which Obama believes was stolen anyway)  and give it to those whom he considers ‘victims’ of capitalism.

The beneficiaries will naturally reward the progressive left with voter support into perpetuity. Viola, the progressive dream of a one-party state is realized.

This has been decades in the making. The left has infiltrated, corrupted, and subverted the institutions that had, up to now, served as pillars supporting freedom, democracy, and prosperity.

The bulk of what was once a free and independent media has been reduced to little more than an arm of the Democrats.

That tens of millions of Americans are flocking to Fox News, Conservative talk radio and online news sites is heartening but doesn’t change the fact most TV, print media outlets are in an advanced state of liberal rot.

The same cancer has undermined the school system, ‘big labour,’ the environmental movement, and the Hollywood culture machine.

Even capitalism itself has succumbed to the lure of easy government money, power and cronyism.

So who is left to fight for freedom? The rest of America.

Obama will attempt to ram through amnesty, climate change, wealth redistribution and he will ignore the constitution to do it.

Republicans have assured Obama impeachment is off the table. And so the battle lines are drawn.

Fasten your seatbelts Canada, we’re about to get a front-row seat to the battle for the soul of America and indeed the free world.

Let’s hope that, as in the first revolutionary war, that the right side wins.

If it doesn’t, we all lose.

Obama’s Minnesota Minions Block The Keystone Pipeline

Here We Go Again!
Obama’s Minnesota Minions Block The Keystone Pipeline

Yesterday, Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken provided the deciding votes blocking the common-sense Keystone pipeline legislation.

According to The Hill, this project will create 42,000 jobs, $2 billion in wages, and energy solutions for Americans, but Democrats said no.

Why did Klobuchar and Franken block the common-sense Keystone pipeline?

Simple: Barack Obama and billionaire Democrat donor Tom Steyer.

After all the election season spin about bipartisanship, it didn’t take long to find our Minnesota delegation of Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken conveniently back in the pocket of Barack Obama. Even worse they were clearly doing the bidding of radical environmentalist Tom Steyer who promised to support Democrats opposing the Keystone pipeline.

Dayton’s Democrats Use Political Power To Pay Back Cronies

 

Democrats are embroiled once again in a scandal. According to the Star Tribune, Democrat Senator Bobby Joe Champion bullied the Minneapolis School District to give a $375,000 contract to an organization that benefited his friends, according to the ethics complaint.

This is cronyism at its worst.

Just three weeks ago Minnesotans discovered a taxpayer funded nonprofit,supported by Gov. Mark Dayton, spent over $600,000 of taxpayer money on lavish vacations, spa treatments, and even a celebrity cruise!

It’s time for this kind of corruption to come to an end! We need new leadership in the Governor’s office.

Help us get rid of Mark Dayton and corrupt politicians and bring integrity back to St. Paul. Visit MNGOPvotes.com and vote early and help put an end to Mark Dayton’s corrupt government.

Governor Dayton and Democrats Choose Union Bosses Over Students!!!

Governor Dayton and Democrats Choose Union Bosses Over Students

When it comes to education, Democrat Gov. Mark Dayton has his priorities all wrong. While he is focused on appeasing union bosses, he is ignoring the needs of Minnesota students.

Republicans introduced solutions focused on creating excellent schools and teachers for all children, but Democrats like Mark Dayton stood firmly in the way because leaders of the teachers union did not agree.

Gov. Mark Dayton and the Democrat majority…

  • Blocked Republican attempts to reform the system and ensure no child is stuck with an ineffective teacher two years in a row (2013 HJ 3835).
  • Eliminated academic graduation requirements for high school students, lowering standards for high school graduation (2013 HJ 6514).
  • Weakened the requirement that teachers pass an academic skills test before becoming licensed to teach in the classroom (2014 HJ 10337).

Do you see a pattern?

The Minnesota Department of Education released the results of the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA’s). The results show a stall in achievement for Minnesota youth and a significant achievement gap between white students and students of color.(MPR)

Instead of working with Republicans to fix these problems Democrat Mark Dayton is blocking solutions and ideas to fix the achievement gap, allowing unequal education opportunities to persist in Minnesota.

This November let’s Ditch Dayton and stand up for Republican education solutions. Sign the petition here!

 

Democrats’ Favorite Day of the Year

Tax Day
Democrats’ Favorite Day of the Year

 
This year, you can thank Governor Dayton and Minnesota Democrats for higher taxes.

Democrats raised taxes by $2.1 Billion in 2013, expanding government spending by 11%. In addition Gov. Dayton promised to raise taxes on the top 2%, but the majority of Democrat taxes fell onto low and middle class Minnesotans. 

We need your help to tell Governor Dayton to stop raising taxes.

Anatomy of the Democrats’ Broken Promise on Property Tax Cuts
Fact:  
Gov. Dayton and the Democrats sent local governments $292 million in new state aids and promised property taxes would go down statewide as a result.  
Fact: 
The statewide property tax levy went up $125 million to the highest level in state history to support local government spending increases.

Democrat solution: 

Conjure up a simulated reporting scenario that shows property taxes going down!  

First, the Facts


The official Department of Revenue report (Click here for Full Report) shows property taxes in Minnesota are INCREASING …

+ 1.2% for counties
+ 1.6% for cities
+ 2.0% for towns
+ 1.7% for counties
+ 1.2% for special districts

In fact, 2014 is poised to report the highest property tax levy in Minnesota history, rising $125 million or 1.5% in total statewide.  (Click here for the 2013 vs 2014 comparison report from the non-partisan Senate Research staff)
 

Look at Property Taxes Where You Live!


Only 1 out of 7 cities, counties and townships lowered property taxes, and almost half of all school districts raised property taxes. 

  • 74 out of 87 counties either raised property taxes or kept them flat (85%).
  • 731 out of 853 cities either raised property taxes or kept them flat (86%).
  • 1646 out of 1911 townships either raised property taxes or kept them flat (86%).
  • 151 out of 331 school districts either raised property taxes or kept them flat (46%).

But Democrats Still Claim Property Taxes Declined.  What Gives?


Democrats created some slick messaging and reporting to convince the public of their property tax “reduction”.

1.  They refer to property tax reductions for certain types of properties only, while forgetting to mention that 8 out of 12 property types increased. 
(Click here for  the 2013 vs 2014 comparison report from the non-partisan Senate Research staff)
 

2.  They advertise only certain cherry-picked jurisdictions where taxes went down, but forget to mention any of the 86% of jurisdictions statewide where property taxes did not go down.  (Click here for Full Report by taxing jurisdiction)
 
3.  They requested a “Simulation Report” from the Department of Revenue to show property taxes collected by local governments minus the estimated state credits that are projected to be claimed.  In the arcane world of state agency reporting, the distinction of a “Simulation Report” is important. Rather than relying on the actual reported property tax levies from local governments in the traditional state agency report formats included above, Democrats needed a one-off simulated scenario relying on projections of state credits to create a scenario they could present to the public to show a “reduction” in property taxes. And they included in the state credits an offset of the estimated renters credit, which does not go the actual property tax payer.

So Why Not Just Say What Actually Happened?


Gov. Dayton and the Democrats made a promise they could not keep.

They passed significant funding increases to local governments in their budget last year, promising it would lower taxes.  Then they doubled down in a July 30, 2013 press conference where they promised property taxes would go down $121 million.  And even using their own “new” math by simulating projected estimates of state credits, they were $113 million off of their July promise.  And all that after spending $292 million on local governments to achieve it.

With an election coming up, it is no surprise that Democrats would try to find some way to spin it.
Ideas That Work!

 
In contrast, the Republican budget produced a better result for property taxpayers in 2013.  Despite DFL attempts to buy down property taxes in 2014, the statewide property tax levy actually increased $4 million more than under the Republican’s budget in 2013.
 
Republicans know that property taxes are controlled at the local level by city councils, county commissioners and school boards. Controlling local government spending and making sure that those local spending decisions are transparent to taxpayers is the solution.
