Denis Grossen, Sartell It has been said repeatedly, this November election is the most important ever. What is at stake, however, is the survival of a national structure based on virtues that have been, from the start, unique and different.

Patric here at the news desk. I’ve just been handed breaking news: all of the Founding Fathers of our country are dead. James Madison, the last surviving Founding Father, passed away in 1836, a mere 184 years ago.  Oh wait, that’s not actually news. It turns out the Founding Fathers have been dead for generations.

Election results should be accepted
