    Can you imagine, the standard for government not being set by the "progressive, educated, erudite, elite of the coastal bastions of "liberalism"?

    Can we learn something from those Podunk political preschoolers in the badlands? You know where commonsense prevails as the common good and is not ignored for the common good?
    Does anyone else have the urge to move to Nebraska?

    How about just moving that fiscal responsibility to Washington? Of course, Nebraska is one of those Red States.

    I'm very proud of my state for leading the way in the arena of government accountability.

    Kudos to Nebraska for following our fine example, and doing it for less.

    So, an article like this BEGS the question... "why don't the feds simply emulate Nebraska?" Or isn't it that simple? I think it is. But then if Washington followed Nebraska's fine example, then the stinking, spend drunk liberals couldn't SPEND MONEY they DON'T HAVE! Oh we can't have that now...

    A government accountable to the people.

    Imagine that.
