My title says it all. I'm a simple guy, with a simple question. I live in SC, our disgrace of a governor Mark Sanford is relevant to me, all 49 others have no bearing on my life whatsoever. So again, why would a state governor of a state that you don't reside in have any relevance to you at all? Thanks

Because his actions were influenced by the "C Street" Cult which apparently believe they rule by Divine Right and the laws we live by do not apply to them. Apparently this belief permiates the Senate and many other areas of government.

Also because many of these Governors seem to be beholden to Domestic Terrorists and Secessionist Traitors

Governors are very powerful officials and they often set the tone for policy. Some are touted as potential Presidential material (Sandiford). Some try to become [vice]President (Palin). And some even succeed in becoming President ( Roosevelt, Carter, Reagan, Clinton).

And in the case of Sandiford and Spitzer, they are just damn entertaining.

I honestly have no idea what you just wrote. I feel as if I need to use an English to Boompa, Boompa to English dictionary.

Because the behavior of some hurts the reputation of all unless they are a Democrat. Democrats like their lowlifes like Al Frankin, Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank.

With Spitzer that was a New York Metropolitan area story. So you get the three states involved. NY NJ CT. I think that is the only location where other state's business is important.

Governors can have effect well beyond their borders. Heck NYC's mayor causes trouble nationwide with frivolous lawsuits as have other Mayors & Governors. Theres a trend lately to blame a states woes on surrounding states ect. Not paying attention to your neighbor can be dentrimental to your Liberty.
