Breaking Point (Maryland)
By: Mark Hyman
Maryland is a state that typifies big, intrusive government.
The legislature and governor do as they please.Â And have done so for decades.
The General Assembly has been under one-party rule since the Civil War. Only five Republicans have served as governor since 1900.
Even the Tea Party movement that swept the nation last electionÂ stopped at Marylandâ€™s border.
Maryland has the nation’s 10thÂ highest illegal alien population.Â It will only get worse.
Hard-working, law-abiding citizens have reached a breaking point.
There is a growingÂ movement to overturn the law — by lawsuit, referendum, or both.
For the first time, the citizens may hold Annapolis accountable.
Overturning this law is more than symbolic. It is the first step in the public taking back their state from politicians and ideologues.
