    Is this supposed to be a surprise!!
    Every time the nanny state achieves full control, that particular nation, state, or city winds up on the trash heap. Detroit is but one of the latest examples.

    Vote Democrat for poverty. Oregon did.

  • Rob says:

    The liberal democrats have got the people in that state right where they want them. Dependent on the government , even for their food and as a result ,an automatic vote. It is so sad people do not think that they cannot exist without government caring for them from cradle to grave.
