Second, Ronald Reagan, patron saint of modern Republicansim, is famous for saying that the most dangerous words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." So we have the less than wonderful situation in Michigan where the acolytes who worship Reagan are now bringing in Big Government to throw out locally elected people and impose dictatorships selected by one man in the State Capitol. The Gipper must be rolling over in his grave. Lincoln famously said that America had "a government of the people, by the people, and for the people". I guess he would not recognize the government that Republicans in the Michigan Legislature has now imposed over this state with the Emergency Manager Law signed into law by Governor Snyder just this week.
