The Last Exit Ramp

Hang on, the last best hope of man on earth just missed the last exit ramp. Over the brutal and bloody 20th century, we have seen the full spectrum of collectivism around the world. America remained the shining city on the hill, proclaiming Liberty to the world, but now our country is about to experience the full force of collectivism’s horrific and flawed philosophy. So learn to obey the rulers, keep your head down, your heart free and your eyes open.

Minneapolis Needs Election Judges!

The city of Minneapolis is looking to add 50 more election judges for the November 6th election. While we’ve made some progress in balancing the party affiliation of election judges in the city, which is required in MN Statute 204B 19 Subd. 5, there is still a long way to go. Please consider this very important part of holding open and honest elections. You’ll be paid and can work a 1/2 day if that fits your schedule. Information and links are listed below.

General information from the city website:
Minneapolis Election Judges must:

  • Be a United States citizen
  • Be an eligible voter in the State of Minnesota
  • Be able to read, write and speak English
  • Not be a candidate at that election
  • Not be the spouse, parent, child, stepchild, sibling or step-sibling of any election judge serving in the same precinct or of any candidate at that election
  • Not be a challenger

Judges are required to fill out an application demonstrating volunteer or professional experience. We regret that we cannot acknowledge receipt of each individual application. Successful applicants will be notified when they have been selected by the appointing authority, and scheduled for training.

To apply to be an election judge:
Complete the application online or print the application page and submit it via fax (612) 673-2756 or U.S. mail.

Send your name and address to address below and they will mail you an application:

I Built This

This is the defining moment in the campaign. This is Obama being honest; he is a true collectivist who believes there is nothing exceptional about the individual. If there is a collective reason for your success, it’s that this country’s system of laws defend and protect the rights of the individual. It’s not the roads or the teachers, it’s freedom and liberty to pursue your dreams AND the rewards of your work.
One more thing, if we are all the same and the product of circumstance, then this website would look like every other BPOU website; well, it doesn’t because of me, Mitch Rossow. I built it all by myself because I wanted to.

CD5 Candidate Debate

Ellison Challengers Debate, Nov. 29th at the Uptown VFW

Sponsored by Senate District 60 Republicans

Senate District 60 Republicans of South Minneapolis will partnered with the CD 5 Republicans to host a debate between three potential challengers to Congressman Keith Ellison in the upcoming 2012 U.S. House election. Participants included Michael Katch, Lynne Torgerson, and Chris Fields. The event was moderated by Bob Davis on November 29th at the James Ballentine VFW, 2916 Lyndale Ave. South.

Bob Davis is the co host of the popular morning show ‘Davis and Emmer’ 6-9 am weekdays, on Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130, and the host of the Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130 ‘Roundtable’ featuring all commentators on Saturday mornings.

Mark Johnson, SD 60 GOP Chair: “We are delighted to invite these candidates together to have a friendly discussion before the residents of CD 5. These days people wonder whether our elected officials are working for Washington or working for us. We believe the Republicans of this district can offer a better alternative to what we’ve been getting, and this debate will help us decide what that alternative will be.”

The debate was open to the public. About 75 people attended.
