Or you could tell me why this is happening. I guess we should blame right-wing conservatives for this yes? Oh wait that's right, there aren't any in office or in Montgomery County.

You have your opinion, I have mine. But odds are I've lived in more and visited more places than you. Hence a different perspective.
How many of those states are better than Maryland in all of the categories? Very Few if that.

There's not to many that's much better as far as some things go, but MD is getting a bit crowded , plus the high taxes, and one party Lib commie types running the state, to much building .... well, then thats bad. I will be gone ASAP and I grew up here down near Gibson Island.

I live just outside Maryland by about 10 miles. I visit Maryland on occasion to shop. I work with Marylanders and ex-Marylanders. Some express real relief upon leaving Maryland. Some don't. Some cite the high taxes, restrictive concealed carry laws, "rain water" tax and taxes in general for their reason for leaving/disliking Maryland. I have been to Western Maryland Cumberland) and it is, like night and day, from places like Baltimore, Frederick, Ocean City (where I have been as well). Been to Hagerstown quite often. Visiting Maryland and living in Maryland seem to be two very different things. I don't mind doing the tourist thing myself on occasion but would NOT personally want to live in Maryland. It does have a reputation as the "Massachusetts of the Mid-Atlantic". To each their own.

As a former Marylander who moved to NC 8 years ago, I must say that I sorely miss almost everything about the mid-atlantic. North Carolina is a snooze-fest compared to the nightlife you can find in MD. I miss the aloofness of Marylanders because down here everyone is TOO friendly. Not a big fan of the southern hospitality. The only thing I don't miss is the horrible traffic and how expensive it was. So while I do miss the place, I don't think I'd want to live there in the future.

I think Maryland is a very nice state to live in.

Maryland is one of the most beautiful states I've been to. Driving across from west to east, through the mountains, all the way to Baltimore in the springtime was glorious.

You are correct, Martin O' Malley as Governor will be changed to Anthony Brown (most likely) or Doug Gansler as Governor (less likely).

What is it that will change except the face and name?
