I believe the confusion is because the majority of the policymakers are out in left field.I am hoping that someday, wecan have Republican candidatesrunning for State offices that the public will listen to. I want acandidate who will stand up andask, “Are you happy with whatour state has become? Are yousatisfied with our indebtedness? Are you willing to pay higher and higher taxes?
