Show-Me Red State Populist Streak!!!

Posturing betwixt phony candidates favors party line Republican talking points in Missouri . . . But when we're talking strictly about the issues, the recent weed and minimum wage vote proves that concern for liberty and the rights of workers dominates the minds of local voters . . . There's an attempt to interpret this as "progressive" but it's actually a POPULIST tendency that rejects party line politics from both sides. And Missouri is better for it. Take a look:

Red Missouri goes progressive

If Missourians mainly like their candidates bright-red Republican, they also have a progressive streak when it comes to specific issues. On Nov. 6, the state's voters gave landslide approval to ballot issues that change the rules on government ethics and legislative redistricting, grant a right to medical marijuana and boost the state minimum wage.
