The Fruit Of One-Party Rule In Unfree State
Here are a few of the liberal, feel-good bills that became law this legislative session while the majority of Maryland taxpayers were busy making a living and taking care of their families.
It’s a hodge podge of politically correct, set-aside programs and studies all paid for by us. The new laws all have three things in common: they grow big government, compromise our God-given rights under the U. S. Constitution and are all the result of one-party rule in the Unfree State!
