A classic example of North Dakotans waking up and going Republican, was former Congressman Earl Pomeroy voting for ObamaCare.
The biggest issue that Republicans have with the Democrats, is ObamaCare.
IMHO, the more people wake up, the more popular the Republican Party will be.
Hopefully, the Republican Party does not mess things up, to keep the trust of voters. The unprovoked wars in the Middle East really wrecked the trust of the Republican Party.
If the Republican Party wants to win elections, they need to be morally straight, quit provoking unjust wars and work to keep Americans employed. While it is essential to have a strong military, we do not have to be using it at war all the time.

A classic example of “waking up” would be people like Robert actually checking the facts before they post their comments.
It was the Heritage Foundation conservative think tank that came up with idea of requiring everybody to purchase health insurance (conservatives abhor freeloaders after all!). The idea was first put into operation by a republican governor called (yes, you guessed it) Mitt Romney in Massachusetts. It was about the only think people in that state liked about Romney’s governorship!
Then along came a guy called Obama who adopted Romneycare as part of his manifesto.
Like magic — this conservative idea then turned into some sort of socialist plot!
Yes, it’s time some folks woke up!

Morally straight like..”The hell with the needy…The poor are that way because they choose to be…?” As long as the fox party still has it’s grubby claws into the GOP any sense of being moral is totally out the wsindow…

I’m one of the few Republicans left in this this state. I have the income tax and property tax bills to prove it!
Who will pay for Lloyd’s fat pensions when there is no private sector left in this state?

I will tell you all something that should concern people as taxpayers of North Dakota, the business practices of Student Loans of North Dakota. Verbal agreements mean nothing to them, and they come off with a “my way or the highway” attitude that should concern all as taxpayers whether you have student loans with them or not. Had I had a conversation recorded with them where they broke their deal, they would be looking at a very large lawsuit, but since they deny the conversation ever took place, all I can do is use my rights as a citizen to speak to taxpayers of their practices in hopes an elected official or consumer watchdog group picks this up and looks into their practices.
