From the Left: Defending North Dakota's Brand Of Conservatism

This will not come as a surprise for anybody who pays attention, but North Dakota conservatism is not the same as conservatism in other parts of the Country.  I believe that frustrates many people on both sides of the political aisle.

But back in September Rep. Scott Louser of Minot announced here on SAB legislation that would take income tax rates down to zero as well. What’s

It’s ironic, at least to this political observer, that we have another Measure 2 on the statewide ballot seeking to abolish a tax.
