Thanks Andy

Andy from KvM and Residual Forces explains the fee. If someone from KvM can see the light, maybe there is hope for mankind yet.

If this weekend is any evidence of the real feelings of those on the ‘right’, I am very troubled. People are threatening to never vote for a Republican again. Throw the bums out. I don’t see how that solves anything. If people ’stay home’ next November over this ‘fee’, they’ll be very sorry. What their little tantrum may result in is a solidly DFL controlled state. They’ll own the Senate, the House, the State Wide Offices, and the Governor.

If you worry-warts think things are bad under Pawlenty, just wait until Hatch resides on Summit Ave. There will be no debate over calling what he will do. He is going to tax the living begeezers out of us.


And...

So, stay home if you like [in November of 2006]. Spend the next few months before November next year, attacking Pawlenty and the Republicans. But in the end, remember that things will be worse under the DFL. Higher taxes. Higher spending. More useless trains. Bye Bye Second Amendment. Bye Bye parental notification. To name a few.

The fractured portion of the right is going to decide the next election, and if they ’stay home’, the Republicans are screwed.


He also says that the fee isn’t a tax because it can be applied to the Native American reservations, something I seem to have overlook before (note: since the reservations are sovereign territory, they can’t be taxed by Minnesota), and he says that Pawlenty needs to do some damage control. I say why not start at the State Fair, it's the perfect place to launch a comeback.

For more info on the fee, please view my very first post, “Love the fee you’re with.” Thanks Andy.

Well Pawlenty is going to lose in court on this - and then he'll have pushed this for nothing.

Well, only if Mike Hatch fouls it up like he did the Medica trial.

What evidence can you offer that he'll lose it? Or are you just making baseless claims again.

I think maybe a good portion of conservative MN spends too much time listening to David Strom and not enough time listening to NARN. Pawlenty is the most conservative governor we have had in a long time. Minnesota conservatives need to stick together.

I agree eightgun. If Strom were a force to be reckoned with, he wouldn't be stuck fighting it out in Minnesota, but in DC.

You know the DFL is salivating over the infighting. If I go to one more BPOU meeting to here my chairs rip apart Pawlenty, I'm gonna scream.

I don't think, and I've said this from the get go, that Strom is as pissed over the fee as he is as pissed over the fact that he is fading in obscruity once again.

Yes, Pawlenty is the most conservative gov we've had, but we can find better. What you are rallying around is someone like Ford saying, this is as good as we've had. Along came better in 1976 to challenge Ford. Pity he did not win in 76, and luckily that challenger did not disappear as often is the case. Yes, Reagan was an anomoly. The danger for us is that conservatives seem to be resting on the "good as we've had" instead of looking to improve. Arne was a step in the right direction that I would not want to repeat. Pawlenty was a step in the right direction (that I think he's pissing on now) I would not want to repeat. Let's find a better candidate.

How disarming would that be to the DFL is the GOP said, "Yep, Pawlenty went back on campaign promises and we expect better." It would take away all of the "Republicans bad" stuff. They could not blame much on the GOP if we say, "we elected Tim the conservative and we ended up with Tim the moderate".

I don't care how good Tim is, I will always vote for the most conservative candidate! Will the challengers please step forward now.
