Let's try to not overlook the fact that Dems won almost every major state ballot measure contest.  On everything from additional healthcare reforms, to gun control, to minimum wages.  And while choosing the proper representation is important, the decisions made about how your life will be run from day to day are the actual ground truth.  

So by all means carry in with your like patty whack, just try not you get any on you.  And for God's sake, wear protection.



The stupid is strong in this one!

WTF?  scratch  scratch  scratch

Firstly, most state ballot initiatives are non-partisan. for example Measure 17 in South Dakota was initiated by the physicians lobby group South Dakota Association of Specialty Care Providers. Essentially it was rich doctors vs richer doctors. Hardly a Democrat issue.

SD Amendment Q was a referred amendment to the South Dakota Constitution by the Legislature backed by the gambling interests in Deadwood. Since the Legislature is overwhelmingly Republican this would be better classified as a Republican measure. But it's not as it was non-partisan.

Only Initiative 18, the minimum wage increase, had it's origins in the Democrat party with it's backing by Zach Crago, executive director of SDDP and the AFL-CIO. While the increase to $8.5@hr might stick, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Republican dominated SD Legislature roll back the yearly inflation increases in the law within the next couple of years.  

Using your amazing logic then, every marijuana measure, medical and recreational, should be the domain of the Libertarian Party since they've owned the issue of legalized marijuana since dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

You can look for all the silver linings you want, but in the final analysis nationally and statewide, the Democrats had their collective azzez handed to them. Now the state Democrats need to figure out how to fill their statewide ballot for 2016 including finding someone to run against Thune, something they failed at in 2010. What an embarrassment SD Democrats are.

Where is the BS flag emoticon?  It would really come in handy right now.  What a steaming pile....no silver lining needed, just the truth.

Democrats support loosening the grip of insurance companies, no matter who sponsors the bill.  Ads run before the vote followed the usual partisan rhetoric.

I agree with you though that Republicans will go against the wishes of the voters if given the chance in the minimum wage battle.  History has proven this in the ACA.

I also agree that a number of state ballot measures are non-partisan, but in the big ones that were the GOP list miserably.

I will be interested to see what happens in the minimum wage fight going forward with the GOP knowing where the the real support lies

Somewhat intersting, showing the mindset of the leftiwinger who believes the public are a stupid lot and really don't know jack schmidt. Its a good thing that we have the liberals telling us what we want.

Can't help but wonder how interesting it will be when the newly elected members of Congress begin their work.

It is estimated there are hundreds of bills sitting idle on Harry Reid's desk, including many jobs bills passed by the House, that Harry would not let get to the floor of the Senate for action.

It is a darn good bet the American people will find out for sure who/what political party is the party of obstruction once the new Senate takes up these bills, passes them and sends them to the White House for signature.

This citizen is waiting to hear the reasons the MT suit HMWAIC spews forth for vetoing a bill that, for example will increase jobs available for Americans.

Don't believe there is any clarity coming...the liberal media will be shouting from the rooftops how the republicans are obstructionists and they should work with the Chimp in Chief. Dr. Jones will suck that up like sugar water to a hummingbird. Thankfully, most of America is awakening how biased the news media has become.

Unfortunately you may be correct.

Even if the Senate should forward a bill that could clear the way for businesses to hire and put many to work and Obama vetoes it the liberal supporting water carriers for Obama will find a way to make it the Republicans fault!

1) The article wrongly insinuates that North Dakota Measure 1, The Human Life Amendment, was initiated when it was referred by the Legislature.

2) It was not a well written amendment since it confers a positive constitutional right instead of a negative right. Positive rights obligate an action while negative rights obligate inaction. For example if the fetus/zygote/fertilized egg has a negative right to life against a dr/abortionist/birth control then they are required to refrain from killing fetus/zygote/fertilized egg. However if f/z/e has a positive right to life against dr/abortionist/abortificient, then dr/a/a are required to act to preserve the life of such.

3) It appeared that the Amendment was self executing could have overriden current laws w/o additional legislation because of a lack of a “as provided by law” clause clearly placing further legsilation back in the Legislature.

I still fail to see how this is a victory for the Democrats/Liberals but I suppose when you get whacked as hard as they did on Tuesday then putting a dress on any pig wandering the road will suffice.

Here is a snippet of an interesting article that helps bring into focus the mechanics behind the GOP's success last week:


"Let’s start with the map. Sure, the GOP won a remarkable number of races Tuesday night. But how many purple states did Republicans actually pick up? There was Cory Gardner’s victory in Colorado — more on that later. There was Joni Ernst’s victory in Iowa. And there was Thom Tillis’s victory in North Carolina. The rest of the GOP’s Senate flips (Montana, South Dakota, Arkansas, West Virginia) and gubernatorial flips (Arkansas, Maryland, Illinois, Massachusetts) were in states that won’t really be contested in 2016. The Democrats flipped the governorship of Pennsylvania as well.
The GOP’s relative underperformance in swing states is a problem going forward because the 2016 landscape is a lot less favorable for Republicans than the 2014 landscape was. Sixteen of this year’s 20 contested Senate seats were held by Democrats heading into the election — and six of those Democrats were from states that Obama lost in 2012. This gave Republicans a huge advantage. The map was already red.

But that map will be upended in 2016, when 23 of the 33 seats at stake will be held by Republicans. Six of them will be in states that Obama won in 2008 and 2012 (Illinois, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and Wisconsin). Two will be in states Obama won in 2008 (Indiana, North Carolina). Two are held by senators who may be retiring (John McCain in Arizona, Chuck Grassley in Iowa). And two are held by senators who may be running for president, which means they can’t run for re-election (Marco Rubio in Florida, Rand Paul in Kentucky).

In other words, for every Senate seat that Republicans flipped in 2014, there’s one — or more — that’s likely to flip back to the Democrats in 2016. The chances that the GOP will still control the upper chamber of Congress after 2016 are slim."
