Lloyd Omdahl: Raise your $80K for national debt
Dear U.S. government: (Please pass this message to the person in charge today. If no one is in charge, send it to Mexico. They can deduct it from the cost of the wall.) The Congressional Budget Office did more harm to cardiac patients than a personal letter from the IRS. The CBO has...

Letter: Obama must bear some immigration blame
To the editor, I agree that, as Herald columnist Lloyd Omdahl said, "there's a lack of a clear national immigration policy." He forgets to admit that policy was perpetuated by the Obama Administration.

Looking at the significant shifts in Republican fortunes in Pennsylvania and Alabama, North Dakota Democrats feel that it could be downhill with the wind to their backs in 2018, something like the Lyndon Johnson landslide of 1964 when an impressive number of Democrats were swept into...

Lloyd Omdahl: Guns, God and James Madison
"No one can interfere in my God-given right to guns" is a refrain often heard in the heated rhetoric between weapon owners and regulation advocates. Being that God has been dragged into this cutting issue of American politics, this claim becomes both secular and theological. Every...

Letter: Omdahl's idea of an abortion truce isn't good
To the editor, Why is former Lt. Gov. Lloyd Omdahl advocating a truce in the abortion debate? Omdahl gives two reasons for his desire for an armistice: 1) Because both sides of the abortion debate show no sign of compromise, and 2) because the debate causes "social turmoil." Think...
