Democrats on the run

Democrats on the run

Maryland is an excellent
laboratory to visualize the methodologies of the progressives. Race to become
governor has started and is especially ugly within the group of Democrats vying
for this lofty position. Accusations of incompetence, inept management skills
and racism have been thrown into the mix as the contest moves forward. Douglas
Gansler, Maryland’s present Attorney General, has many sins to attest for
during his tenure in office. Listening to him castigate other candidates is
quite ironic. A close look at his record displays a man who is not ready for
prime time. In the small event that he is elevated to the governorship,
Maryland will have more of the poor leadership we have seen with O’Malley.
Gansler will continue the anti-business climate of his soon to be predecessor. Taxes
will move in only one direction from an astronomical standpoint. Worst of all
more regulations will be piled on Marylanders to contain them personally and
professionally. Gansler’s campaign appears to be in trouble. Perhaps he will
pull out now and save himself the embarrassment of an overwhelming defeat.

Anthony Brown, the present
Lieutenant Governor, had a heads up from this intrepid journalist until he
pitched the race card. In Brown’s estimation minority businesses do not receive
sufficient contracts and financial aid from Maryland’s government. Yearly, the
state awards billions in contracts for required services to this very group.
Afro Americans represent 30% of the Maryland’s population. Yet they receive a
disproportionately higher amount of funds than other groups with greater
representation. Anthony Brown’s proposals not only have a taint of racism
smeared across them, they are not fair and equitable to the rest of the
business community. Stated another way Brown is trying to buy votes using
taxpayer dollars.

Democrats have no
compunction when it comes to garnering votes. Every conceivable method to win
an election will be employed. America viewed the President’s team of
campaigners utilize deceptive means to pander to his base of followers and
lackeys. Brown is using the same formula to rally his supporters. Maryland’s
gubernatorial election, this November, will be an imprint of former state elections.
Lies and deceit will drive campaigns, leaving voters with a conundrum. Do you
want more of the same leadership, which has oppressed the majority of state
residents, or a person with new ideas for smaller government and less regulation?
The choices are obvious, choose wisely.
