It has been long over due that we send Senator Kuipers home, he has not represented the views or the opinions of West Michigan sense he won his first term in Office.
It is time that the Republican Party starts to recognize what is collaboration and what is big government. Revenue Sharing affect much more then the operation of some municipalities, it affect the employment and creation of development opportunities. It will be the small business owners, and the local municipalities that pull this state up out of its downward spiral. It is time that the representatives in Lansing realize that the blue collar worker and the average Michigan worker needs more then a new program from Lansing. Help the local small municipalities keep there communities strong.
God Bless America.

sure of course, take away public safety, then when we ask, when we beg for it back, the liberal socialist will step right up and say "see we told you"

The cuts need to come from "administrators" slaries!

Time to end "retirement benefits" and insurance....let them pay for their own or pay cash for medical services like us "little people" have to.

Time to cut the salaries of Judges and prosecutors too...and the folks who are called "public defenders" as they do not earn their pay!

Let them buy their own car and pay for their own gas too!

Because if they cut any more services to the poor, the elderly, and the disabled.... they can plan on a rainstorm of hot lead flying at them!!!

Take your "public safety" and shove it NAZI lover!
(Only Hitler lovers throw the "liberal socialist" label around anymore....Right Wing "Socialists" are NAZIS and Bush/Cheney lovers and the enemies of our Constitution!!)

I am perfectly capable of defending my home and my family myself!

They can lay off all the cops and I won't miss them!(9-11 doesn't work if you don't contribute to the GOP in my county!)

Buy a gun... take the law into your own hands like I WILL!

I am sick and tired of seeing people run through the court system for "morality violations" while violent people are put on the streets to make room for them.

Every violent criminal taken out by a well armed citizen saves the taxpayers money!

(Only stupid folks would dare break my door in the middle of the night...and I won't miss!)

We don't need more "public safety"....we need less "Blue Laws" and more freedom and liberty!

And it is the Right Wing National "Socialists" who are currently "occupying" the Whitehouse and the Michigan Senate...the economic problems fall squarely on the Shoulders of the GOP!

Right Wing Military/Corporate/Church/poli ce state "Socialists" are far more dangerous than the unarmed "liberals"!

I fail to see any "threat" to my freedoms coming from the "liberals" at the moment. You are barking up the wrong tree skinhead!

Cut the Salaries and Benefits of those LEECHES, the Legislators. Can we afford those high Salaries, expense accounts and Lifetime benefits after only a few years of service? Wake up Taxpayers we are being ROBBED ! A part-time legislature with no lifetime benefits and a BIG Salarie Cut. Come November we can get rid of this bunch of LOOSERS!
