The Solution for the New Year: Vote Right
Of course, I’ve got to highlight the good sense of my townsman Stephen Miller (whom I don’t believe I know, by the way):
The many issues facing Rhode Island today are not problems, they are symptoms of the real problem — us! Our extremely liberal, entitlement-based attitude permeates everything we do in Rhode Island.
The result of this approach to life is bloated government, union problems, widespread welfare, political scandal and the like.
The solution is likewise embodied in our own lives: We must pressure our legislators to move toward policies that give greater consideration to the bulk of the citizenry, as opposed to the demands of special interests.
One positive step in this direction is the election of a greater number of Republicans! We need a better balance between our spending habits (and abuses) and our ability to pay.
