Minneapolis is a premier American city handicapped by a centralized, overreaching government that is stifling the freedom and prosperity of its citizens. MCRC advocates a philosophy of localized, limited government, strong wards, and active citizens. We seek to elect candidates to city office who want to open Minneapolis once again to small businesses, parent/teacher controlled schools, and to make our city affordable for families.

Minneapolis 2013 Election Results

Linea Palmisano and Others Struggle to Explain Sudden Moratorium
minnesotaconnected.com, 3/19/14
"Minneapolis doesn't just want more cash either, it needs it; the city is broke but it's quite good at masking the fact, God forbid they ever get audited by the state and if it ever wants to be able to do some heavy spending again, it will need a larger tax base." Mr. Bergs nails it. Full audit of Mpls budget. Now.
The Party of Big Money?
MNGOP, 2/27/14
"The truth is that Democrats outspend Republicans by nearly 3-to-1 in Minnesota. In fact, $27 million of the $53 million contributed to Minnesota campaigns in recent years was from just 26 donors: 19 of which are Democrats."
Planned Parenthood reveals big 2014 game plan
By Alexander Burns
Politico, 2/26/14
For those who say we shouldn't talk about abortion, the fact is it's a major funding source for the Democrat party. "The cost of the [2014] midterm campaign [Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes] is expected to cross the $18 million mark, including $2.4 million the group spent in 2013 for Virginia's off-year governor's race."
Minneapolis cuts back program to bring fresh food to small city stores
By Maya Rao
Star Tribune, 2/23/14
"One study in 2011 tracked low-income people in Minneapolis, Birmingham, Ala., Oakland, Calif., and Chicago, and found little connection between fruit and vegetable consumption and access to supermarkets" but that doesn't matter to the progressives downtown. They will continue to waste our money trying to force people to do what they don't want to do.
NYC: More Black Babies Killed by Abortion Than Born
By Michael W. Chapman
cnsnews.com, 2/20/14
"In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple." Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, would be proud. Blacks voting for Democrats is suicide.

Seven Minimum Wage Facts That Have Democrats Worried
By Wynton Hall
Breitbart.com, 1/5/14
Fact #1, just 2.8% of American workers earn at or below the minimum wage and #2, half of all minimum wage workers are 16 to 24 years old. Typical of progressives to raise this non-issue as a smokescreen for the real havoc they have and are causing the economy. Look away from this shiny object and focus on defeating Obamacontrol.
San Francisco bans all fireplace use during Christmas
Daily Caller News Foundation, 12/25/13
"First-time offenders will have the option to enroll in a wood smoke awareness class to learn about the hazards of wood smoke." The commissars in downtown Mpls have already discussed the "dangers" of wood smoke. With no hard evidence or research to back up their claim these SF weenie facists, obsessed with control, use their political power to limit freedom. What's next? A ban on burning candles in church?
Campaign Finance Board Rules Democrat Campaigning Illegal: $100,000 fine one of the largest in state history
MNGOP Press Release, 12/17/13
MN Democrats cheated in 2012 in order to buy majorities in the state House and Senate. Ever wonder who would be elected if only eligible voters voted and campaign finance rules (good or bad) were followed by everyone?
Study finds no clear link between lung cancer and second-hand smoke
The Independent, UK, 12/13/13

The Politics of Poverty, Part 1
By Bill Glahn
"As it turns out, using [liberal Blogger Tony] Petrangelo's voting index, the metro's poverty areas rank among the most Democrat-voting areas in the state...What are we to make of the fact that the Met Council has identified no area of poverty that is represented by a Republican?"
Homes raided, subpoenas issued targeting conservative groups and allies of Scott Walker

Capitol City Project, 11/18/13

Coming Pension Meltdown: The 10 Most Troubled City Systems

Documents show Dayton earns less than many Minn. city, county leaders
MPRNews, 11/11/13
"...city managers, police chiefs, parks directors, county health agents among them -- now drawing bigger paychecks than the governor. In some cases, pay for the same position shot up more than $40,000 in about eight years." All these employees are forced to pay union dues that feed the MN Democrat party. Coincidence?
