OMalley is going to ruin Maryland. Did you hear that a bunch of recruits were cut from MDTA because he cut the police funds in half. Now he wants to raise our taxes 40 million more a year! How do we stop him? I can barely afford to live in Maryland has it is with the price of houses going up, BGE, water, etc...what can we do?

You can thank the state senate / house of delegates for playing politics and not working with Ehrlich to get things done, making it look like he didn't do anything.
Everyone I know from Baltimore (public safety) predicted this very type of thing happening when MOM was voted in, but nobody listened; he was supposed to be better than sliced bread... Yeah, right.

I definitely did not vote for him. I wish there was a way to have our opinions heard. I am not happy with all the hikes happening here. Maybe all the wealthy people can afford them, but I can not!

In NY taxes, taxes, taxes...... [i] have resovled to begin something called " VOTE THE INCUMBENTS OUT OF OFFICE". "DON'T VOTE FOR THE ONES WHO HAVE THE MOST MONEY EITHER" OR HAS A BIG NAME..... You want change, follow this principle when you go to vote in the next election. And don't be fooled by all the political ad's neither.

Remember our contitution? It's still in effect folks. Demand that our elected officials listen to us. We have the power. If all voters apply the above principles, change can happen. Once they see that "WE WILL" remove them from office, watch what happens, things will change. Then there's the question, "Well there is no one to vote for, now what? You see thats it, there is. The one who has not been in office before. And if that person lies, vote them out too until we get the right person who truly cares "FOR THE PEOPLE".

If you see and elected offical changing political parties because thiers is failing, same principles apply; vote them out. We need taxes, I don't dispute that but don't raise property taxes, Especially since I see a lot of peope moving to MD. You can lower property taxes by 50% by raising taxes on cigarettes, alcohol and video games alone including high priced tickets items. Lower the prices and tax on Hybird vehicles so people can afford them and raise the tax on new vehicles that are not fuel efficient. The list is endless.
