Democrat Rulers Despise Democracy

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/12/06

Case in point: Mark Dayton, Democrat Governor of Minnesota.


Background numbers:

Election results:
Mark Dayton garnered 43.6 percent of the vote, far less than a majority, or 919,232 votes.
Tom Emmer, the Republican candidate, gained 43.2 percent of the vote, or 910,462 votes.
The top independent vote-getter was Tom Horner with 11.9 percent of the vote, or 251,487 votes.

Political money:
American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is number 3 in political contribution money from 1989 to present, giving a total of 46,356,658 dollars to political campaigns. 94 percent of their money goes to Democrat electioneering while only 1 percent (less than 500,000 of their over 46,000,000) goes towards a Republican. Every last dime of union dues comes directly from tax dollars, meaning Conservatives are paying for the Socialist voice.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is number 5 in political contribution money from 1989 to present, giving a total of 37,757,242 dollars to political campaigns. 76 percent of their money goes to Democrat electioneering while only 2 percent (less than 800,000 of their over 37,000,000) goes toward a Republican.

Governor Mark Dayton, against whom over 56 percent of Minnesotans voted, decided he didn’t need no democratic process. He decided he was god of Minnesota and could rule with uncontested power, and give kickbacks to two powerful unions who feed off of tax-payers, despite the fact a clear majority of Minnesotans voted against him. Well, a Minnesota judge ruled against him and his god-like power-grab.

Yes, Mark Dayton, the Democrat/Farm/Labor Party candidate who lost a large majority of the vote but was still elected Governor, decided he was going to write a law and completely bypass the law-writing body of Minnesota who had already rejected his desires. And a Minnesota judge called him out.

Of the 11,000 Minnesota-licensed child-care providers (and why the licensing, other than to get money paid into the state government coffers?), 4,300 get state subsidies. Mark Dayton, who despises the democrat process, decided to write an executive order requiring an election process for unionization of those 4,300 providers. And SEIU and AFSCME loved it! Because that was something they absolutely want. Well, a judge said the Governor cannot write law; that’s up to the Legislature. And the judge put a temporary restraining order on the god of Minnesota. Poo-poo SEIU, the Socialist purple people beaters. Poo-poo AFSCME, the Socialists. Poo-poo Mark Dayton (D) who thinks himself god. And hooray for Constitutional separation of powers, which once again defeated a Democrat who necessarily hates actual democracy.
