It's true. mostly the congested city areas are getting like that. The outside areas want to preserve their community (Gulp! I hope so!)

I'm coming from NC. One thing that really bothers me besides all the other 'blue' aspects of the state is the carry laws. no wonder the crime rate is so high when the victims are defenseless (and better yet, the criminals know it).

it's even worse when virginia, west virginia, and pennsylvania will allow Marylanders to carry concealed in their states and MD can't even trust it's citizens to do the same in their own state!

I'm not sure about linking organizations here, but here's a movement I think that needs more following during the next elections:

I can not believe how the cost of living continues to go up and our police officers are starting out at 36-40K. With the crime there is in Maryland and the high taxes we are paying, it would be nice to give it to some of our police officers!

not to offend the democrats, but the vote went the way of someone not looking out for the protection of the citizens, it went to the agenda and job security. cops, teachers, military...they're all screwed until someone has a serious attitude toward reality and not this socialist utopia everyone needs to be a part of in which there are no crimes, special needs or violence

I will be at the end of the month. Coming from NC. I'll be working in Laurel and was trying to find a way to live in PA or VA to commute because of all this crap. LOL. I think I'd rather not fight the 2 hour drive though and just hope things will change.

Maybe we can start a city-data grassroots drive next election. I posted about the md shall issue site a few posts up. I'll be wanting more info.

That said, I always get a kick out of the occasional Maryland native who argues TO THE GRAVE that they live in a Southern state. LMAO.

Also, Ehrlich was a RINO who made Pataki look like Cheney.
I like to refer the term as Repulicrat, then again, I have not seen a true Republican in any office nationwide since Reagan.
Anymore modern Republicans are old Democrats and modern Demcrats are Socialist. But hey, it don't matter as long as we "feel good" about giving our hard earned dollars to beaucrats. Must be why old Bab's has been Marylands Teddy Kennedy for years.

Soon people will be lumped over top of each other because of the influx of people moving. I don;t think we really had a good candidate for Governor in my opinion. I just didn;t want Erhlich back inoffice again...
There may not be a good choice for governor, however, Erhlich did leave office with a surplus and taxes were low. OMalley has gone through that surplus. Do not forget it is hard for a Republican governor to actually govern and Democratic house. The governor does not have total control, there are several other factors involved with government. OMalley based his election on getting BGE to keep rates affordable, you see how well he did with that. Now he wants to raise our gas prices. Maryland is going to end up just like New Jersey and I am fleeing before that happens!

O'Malley's victory has only left me more disillusioned about Maryland and further convinced me of the need to move out. Its not just the New York transplants in Montgomery County, its people all over the state who voted him in.

O'Malley wants to give in-state tuition at the University of Maryland to ILLEGAL ALIENS. What's more messed up than this?
