Tuesday's election was a tidal wave that left Minnesota in its wake. Voters in liberal states like Illinois, Maryland and Massachusetts finally realized that you can't tax and spend your state into prosperity. Minnesota voters obviously have not yet reached that conclusion. It will be interesting to see if Gov. Dayton learns from what happened to his counterparts in these three states or if he will forge ahead with even more tax and spending increases. As Margaret Thatcher infamously said, "Liberalism fails when it runs out of other people's money." Gov. Dayton has not yet bled dry the successful Minnesotans. Four more years ought to do it.
