South Dakota College Republicans Endorse Campus Free Speech Act

South Dakota College Republican Chairwoman, Emily Novotny, announced today that she has endorsed House Bill 1073, otherwise known as the Campus Free Speech Act. This bill is scheduled to have its first hearing in the House Judiciary Committee in the coming week.

“Our Universities should be institutions of free thought where debate should be open and free, not ‘safe spaces’ where people pass rules to avoid being challenged. If we can’t openly have conversations, explore different ideas, and debate at our Universities, where on earth can we have these conversations?”

The measure, which was introduced by Republican State Representative Michael Clark, was introduced because of incidents across the country where various speakers have be shut down on campuses for differing opinions. Representative Clark along with many others in the State Legislature want to ensure that South Dakota does not become a place where free speech is suffocated.

Novotny said, “South Dakota needs to be a state that promotes free speech everywhere, whether we agree with that speech or not. My hope is that this bill will pass through the State Legislature as a sign of support and insurance of the enduring right to free speech throughout the great state of South Dakota.”

The far-left’s non-inclusive march

On Saturday morning, many will gather in Sioux Falls for what is billed as a “Women’s March.” But don’t be fooled! This march doesn't represent diversity of opinions of all women. Instead, it is a rally for far-left organizations like pro-abortion groups such as NARAL, Planned Parenthood and the South Dakota Democratic Party.

The event will also feature a keynote speech by liberal democrat mayoral candidate Jolene Loetscher

These are the same organizations who fought against recent tax breaks for working class families and stabilizing the Affordable Care Act.

“The Minnehaha County Republican Party supports and respects the rights of women,” said Karon Gubbrud, “The idea that this event represents the beliefs of all women is laughable.”

In 2017, conservative groups such as the Alpha Center wanted to participate in the event, but were denied access by the organizing committee.

“It is apparent that the organizers and Jolene aren’t willing to welcome a diversity of opinions,” said Dave Roetman, Minnehaha County GOP chair. “The rights of women shouldn’t be the partisan issue Democrats have made it become. It’s really disappointing.”

On Saturday as liberals rally to attack elected officials and advance their pro-abortion agenda, the Minnehaha Republican Party encourages all to pray for unity as well as our elected officials, those serving in the military, first responders, and the less fortunate.

Small Business Is the Engine

Small Businesses Fuel our economy! 

A small portion of published work written by Tamera Enalls (Minnehaha Co GOP Treasurer)


A small business is a company that employs 500 or fewer employees (McKinney, 2009) and is vital to the success of the U.S. economy with 23 million small businesses in America today (U.S. Small Business, 2013). Small businesses account for 40% of all retail sales (SBA, 2013) and have been continuously growing since 1990.

While large corporations have eliminated four million jobs, small businesses have created eight million new jobs (U.S. Small Business, 2013). According to the Small Business Administration (2013), small businesses have provided 55% of jobs and 66% of new jobs since the 1970s.

Trump Ends 2017 Residing In His Enemies’ Heads

As 2017 comes to a close, tumbleweeds roll down the empty Lido Deck while the Republican base answers the question, “What if Conservative, Inc., gave a cruise and nobody came?” The Democrats fled Washington under cover of darkness, desperate to keep their slobbering socialist wing from forcing them to commit ritual suicide by closing down the government over Christmas because the GOP Congress (for now) won’t hand a couple million illegal aliens citizenship. Robert Mueller’s Keystone Kop Korps started off with “unquestioned integrity” and ended the year with totally questioned integrity.  Read More
