SDGOP schism coming to a head in Rapid City

Principled conservatives are fighting back against the South Dakota Republican Party insiders in Rapid City.

Republican Mayor Steve Allender, who as police chief managed a "bunch of racists," is facing tremendous resistance for another building boondoggle.
Over the past two weeks, volunteers and members of Citizens for Liberty, a local tea party organization, have been busily collecting signatures to ensure that on June 5, Rapid Citians can decide whether the city should build a new 12,000- to 13,000-seat, $130 million arena or renovate the existing 10,000-seat Barnett Arena for about $25 million. The reason for the referral, Citizens for Liberty leader Tonchi Weaver said last week, is to give Rapid Citians the final say on how their tax dollars are spent.
Read the rest here.

Weaver is an activist who led a petition drive in opposition to increased sewer and water rates. She and her group have the resources, support and political courage to mount third party and unaffiliated runs for statewide office.

Pierre is broken and the only way to fix it is to have Republicans lose several races to Democrats. Fact is: the best way to a strong two party system in South Dakota is for arch-conservatives to launch an alt-right party. South Dakota's most ardent earth haters are still looking for principled conservatives to run in statewide elections.
Independent candidates are automatically put on the General Election ballot and do not have a Primary Election.The deadline to submit an independent candidate nominating petition for the November general election is April 24, 2018 and governor candidates must circulate petitions and collect at least 2,775 valid signatures.

Tonchi Weaver, Liz May, Steve Livermont, Tim Begalka, Shad Olson, Florence Thompson, Stace Nelson, Gordon Howie, Neal Tapio, Steve Novotny and Scott Jones could be among those candidates.


  1. I see once more my name has been tossed around on Dakota Progressive site. So I'll toss a little chum out and see if the Good Old Boys sharks start circling. If any of you bothered to read the 15 March 2018 Daily republic article on Page A3 by Bob Mercer Capitol Correspondent, you will see the talking heads in Pierre have saddled the taxpayers with another large waste of funds. Seems since Dennis Daugaard, Marty Jackley, Billie Sutton and the rest of the so called governing body in Pierre couldn't prevent the EB5 and gear up scandals. We now have contracted with PricewaterhouseCoopers Public Sector LLP. Based in Al Capone famed city Chicago, Illinois. You remember these guys, they screwed up the Oscar's last year. Now the State of South Dakota has contracted with them for $790,000,00. to help develop internal controls in State Government. In addition to this one year agreement the Talking heads have given them an option for another four years, assuming the price is the same. We the taxpayers get shafted for another $3,950,000.00 to figure out why shit like EB5 and Gear Up happened in the first place. Now obviously we elected a state auditor, we have a dept. of legislative audit. We have an Attorney Generals office, we have Senators and Representatives and a Governor who's job is, to conduct the Business of the people of South Dakota in a fair and legal manner and not betray the Public trust. Now when you read and study all the news paper articles on EB5 as I have, it's pretty simple to see Mike Rounds, Dennis Daugaard, Marty Jackely, the SD Board of regents, their attorneys and advisers all knew what was taking place. There is now way Joop BOllen ran the EB5 scam thru his private held Corporation SDRC INC. without them knowing and popping up "RED FLAGS" all over hell's half acre. SDRC INC and it's subsidiaries skimmed between 120 and 140 million of 800 EB5 investors. Now if Jackley or Sutton had half a gonad between the two of them. they would be following the money with a forensic audit, the money trail never lies boys. Jackleys proven his loyalty to the good old boys insider club. And if any of you think electing an ultra liberal like Billie Sutton will help, you only need read his following quotes. " I am proud to join my fellow state legislators in endorsing Hillary Clinton for President" Senate Minority Leader Billie Sutton said. " Secretary Clinton has shown she has the same values as families in rural America. Run that line of crap by Vince Foster, Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Richard Benda and Scott Westerhuis. Oops, dead men hear not nor tell no Tales. Ain;t that true Billie : Aka Slick Willy" Sutton. Tell SD Taxpayers of sliding SB162 under the radar with the potential to hook them another 3.9 million. Tax and spend Slick Willy Sutton and all the other talking heads in Pierre simply only needed to do what they were elected for, run the people's business in a conservative legal manner. If I were to ever be elected Governor of this State, the first order of business would be an independent investigation into EB5, Gear Up and Redfield sunflower Plant Ponzi scheme. In the lying Politicians category, the OSCARS go to?? The only way to drain the swamp in Pierre is to elect non politicians who have never been there. I guess I'll wait and see what the 'Honey Badger" Libertarian Party does 14 April. Veritas odit moras yours truly AirWolf

    1. Thank you for your dedication, Mr. Novotny. Time is running out. Sutton has no chance of winning unless a principled conservative runs in the general election as a third party or unaffiliated candidate.
