    Well it seems that the autocratic plans for the country are being proven out in Michigan. Republicans won the legislature and have used emergency rules to fast track laws as BAU. They've taken over towns and tossed out local officials while ramming through un-popular bills without taking a vote. It seems that although they have a majority..they don't have the 2/3rds majority necessary to fast track. And it seems that the vote count might not have been "accurate". We've seen these sorts of things take place in other states, but none so brazen. Michigan is in the process of liqudating towns they don't like..and voter suppression.

    MAINE is becoming another example of the GOP ideal.

    LePage is dismantling the social services network as fast as he can.

    Oh Rachel Maddow. Why anyone would believe anything that ugly dyke said is beyond me.

    We see the results of Democratic rule in MI: high taxes, businesses fleeing, decay, crime. Detroit is a whisker away from bankruptcy and state takeover. These are the direct results of Dem policies. This is Obama's future of America. The GOP is trying to take some desperate measures to turn around decades of mismanagement. And all the left can do is gripe.

    If you have a problem with the points she makes..address them.

    San Francisco is one of the cleanest and loveliest cities in the nation.

    Kinda gives one insight on why the Republicans are so focused on "States Rights". It's a ground up movement to set up Autocratic rule.
