As long as the same people are in power, nothing will change. If only something horrible would happen to each and every person in power to let somebody else take over.

Yeah, I say let's not vote any of the current jokers back into office....and they deserve worse than that. They're ridiculous beyond belief and have made our state government the laughingstock of the nation.

You really have to blame the voter that just blindly votes row A or B regardless of the candidate. I think this ignorance is much worse in much densely populated areas of the state.

Some people think an economic collapse will change things here but I think considering the makeup of our government will just move of closer to full blown Communism as a fix. The only thing I think that will fix it is if some areas start secessionist movements to wake people up that Communists occupy state and county governments.

I really don't blame the voter though.... The way our legislature is structure with internal rules and the state constitution is what causes this. We need a constitutional convention.
