This guy has a mind like a steel trap and would destroy Dayton in any debate. He is clear, concise, and succinct. Would be a nice change from the mumbling we get from St.Paul.
That debate would be on what precisely? How we should turn back the clock and revisit gay marriage, how we should emulate WI on job creation, how we should revisit voter ID. Dave is a throwback, as in throw him back.
i want someone that's going to do work as governor, not 'get out of my way.' this state is facing massive problems, we need action not someone who hates government but then spends all their life trying to convince the people we should elect them into our government. you want to be an isolationist in the 21st century, go move to montana. there's work to be done, and all the gop wants to do is stick their head in the sand or force their religion on a secular nation. no thanks.
Ho hum. Another Republican who wants to reduce government, lower taxes, and kill the public school system. Such unique ideas that have propelled other Republican candidates to victory.
The biggest mistake conservatives like Thompson make is in assuming everyone wants to be free. In Minnesota that's obviously not the case.
Sounds like a Scott Walker wannabe.
Hmm, it seems we just had a Republican governor who was skilled at "getting out of the way" of things and look where it got Minnesota after 8 years of such skillful leadership. Dave Thompson is a gifted orator, but that's it. Anyone who has dreams of turning Minnesota into a right to work state or of lowering taxes to the point that we become another South Dakota, which has nothing to show for itself and no quality of life that we enjoy in our state, is not fit to be governor of Minnesota!
Alright, right back to the principles that got us in the mess we were in before. People don't want a stripped down government for the sake of the principle - they want a stabilized government. A conservative notion that understands government stability without overreach would probably see an election windfall. Never to see the light of day.
Go for it Dave.
It sounds like he wants to follow the Wisconsin model for job growth...which is one of the worst in the nation for the past several years...
