    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Maryland is my home state. I'm kinda saddened by this but not shocked that they would consider it.

    Yet another liberal gov't that simply asserts a need for ever more revenue and power.
    IKR, Its been a while since I've been to California so it seems O'Malley wants to bring California to me!

    Certainly that deserves a tax of some sort.

    Let's call it the "respiratory usage fee."
    Rep. Ed Orcutt of Washington state proposed just such a tax for bicyclists.

    Sure is...One of my nieces is a huge progressive, and actually worked on the Obama campaign, and was in NC for the convention. She lives in MD, and thinks O'Malley, or as the locals call him M.O.M. is just the be all, end all, and thinks he is the real challenge to Hillary if she runs....

    Pero, we probably really don't want to know! As a writer, I always believed that I have a healthy imagination, but I simply can't keep up with the wacky ideas some of them come up with! I wonder what the people in Maryland think, knowing that they have elected these people, and are paying their salaries? Maybe a poll is warranted.....

    Most of them don't necessarily like it, but tend to shake their heads and go along with it anyway figuring that there is nothing they can do about it...Then come next election the machine roars to life, and the church vans go out to Balto city, hand out 'walkin' around money', and transport the homeless to the polls so the fix is in....

    That's why I left....I predicted this crap...But I do miss the area....
