Less than a year ago, Rick Berg was a relative unknown among many North Dakotans.

Earl, in the beginning you did have North Dakota’s best interest but somewhere you went Washington and the only time we saw or heard from you was if something big was going on in the State and you could get some FREE press or at election time. I am an Independent and want to thank you for your service but I did not vote for you this go around as I believe we need a BIG change! Our Congress should be ashamed of themselves for letting this Country go this far down the tubes and I don’t care which party they are with! Where is the love for this Country and wanting the best for our people? Our forefathers have to be spinning in their graves seeing the direction this once great Nation is going and has been going for sometime.
I ask those now serving our Nation to please have the people and our Country’s best interest in mind and please dig us out of the MESS that we are in. Granted we did not get here in just two years and it will take longer to get us on the right path but we must get people back to work and get this economy going again. Get rid of NAFTA and tax all goods coming in from China and tax them hard!

The blue areas are where all the free lunchers are!

Seems like the blue areas are the “rural areas”….hardly a major city in any of them. Earl should have learned by now that there is more to representing the citizens of a state than just bringing home more bacon than there was in the pig you sent to market. If and when the pork dries up in Washington, there would be absolutely no benefit of having Earl in that job. He wasn’t listening to North Dakotans (or the majority of the rest of Americans either for that matter) as he voted in favor of gutting the best healthcare system in the world so that government could get their sticky little fingers into even more aspects of the citizen’s personal lives. He wanted to ride the bandwagon along with the majority of his party who demonize anyone who turns a profit while providing a service to others. Their efforts to antagonize Americans by creating a racist environment and trumped up class warfare along with their delusional thinking of a world where everyone just works for free is a big part of what caused their demise last Tuesday. And the stupid thing is, they should have known better because they, themselves are not willing to work for free and even have the arrogance to pass rules which make themselves exempt from those that all other non-government employed citizens must follow, the next second giving themselves all a pat on the back along with a raise in pay while nearly 20 percent of the citizens they are suppose to represent are unemployed! Arrogance….sheer arrogance!

It was an awesome day! Conservatives are going to turn this mess around and get us back on track. I can see 2012 from my house

Miss mamma, is not this the same people who caused the US problems with Mr. Bush? How can they make things better if they do the same things they did that caused the problems? Some people they say we will go to war again and bomb some countries. This frightens me as I have extended family in other parts of the world and do not know where the US will bomb. I am afraid I will lose much money if the US economy fails again. I watched Mr Bush on the news last night and he not apologetic about some of his failed plans that many of the same people vote for. It seem we go backwards again for 8 years.

thanks for bringing up those points Zardoz. The liberals, who are not having a hissy fit and licking their wounds, always blame Bush for the situation but they never seem to recall that it was us who got attacked. We weren’t out looking for trouble…it came to us. Fighting a war isn’t cheap! The alternative is to simply give up! Democrats voted for the war also…just a minor detail that they would like us all to forget of course.

Let see-who was President when we had our guard down and got attacked? What party was he from? Just the facts Mam.

The terroists were training her on Clinton’s watch so don’t blame everything on Bush. This is the kind of crap that is going to keep this country from moving forward. Quit blaming one another and try something. If that doesn’t work stop that and try something else.

I have every right to comment. Nobody earned my vote. There isn’t a purpose to voting without having a viable candidate on the ballot. I didn’t see that, so I didn’t vote. Not to mention, in my part of the state the only ads we see are for MN politicians. I never saw one ad or sign for anybody where I live, so I never even knew who was running.

As a Lib, though the candidates I supported did not win, the people have spoken and I am thankful we live in a country in which we have the right to vote in our leaders and representatives. Congratulations to those whose candidates won. I fully expect Emmer to be governor as well once the absentee ballots are counted. We’ll have a conservative republican state house, senate, and governor’s office. It will be interesting to see how the state improves over the next couple of years.

Free speech is an unqualified right in this country–you don’t have to do anything to say what you want and that includes vote.
