Democrats! Don't Forget This:

I hope that Democrats, in particular, will remember the following things:

1) It was the Democrats who worked so hard and so deep into the night to raise your income and sales tax burdens last week. Jennifer Granholm and your Michigan legislators should spring to mind when Election Day 2008 rolls around.

2) It was most of the Democratic presidential candidates who have "withdrawn" from the primary race to be held 1/15 (Hillary hasn't backed out, so she'll get a cheap win—but does she really care, so long as she wins??).

To contrast:

1) Nearly every Republican legislator in Michigan voted against the recent tax increases (There were a few exceptions, including my own state senator, but I think most of them are ineligible to run again due to term limits).

2) All of the Republican candidates for president came to the debate in Dearborn yesterday. All of them either came to Mackinac for the big Republican Leadership Conference last month or they wanted/planned to come.

Here's the difference: Republicans, for the most part, want to serve for the best interests of the people. Democrats, for the most part, don't seem to care about the best interests of the people—they just want your vote on Election Day so that they can do whatever they please. Stereotypical? Perhaps. But observe what each does....which, after all, is our duty as citizens.
