He's still doing things against the good of the State. Why should millions of dollars go to the slots in Delaware, West Virginia and now Pennsylvania when it can stay in Maryland?

Is the former Gov. a citizen of Maryland? Yes? Then why should he butt out? Can he no longer express his opinion since he was voted out of office?

If you're tired of paying more taxes, why on earth do you keep electing the Democrat Buffoons into office? You're probably one of those people that didn't like slots when Ehrlich was governor, but love them now, right?

Governor Ehrlich is not against slots, it is the language. It is padded with nonsense and special favors. Did you know the there is something called the general fund, it pays for everything. Now for every dollar of slot money that is set aside for schools-one dollars comes back out of the general fund for the legislatures special interest. So there will be no extra money.

It is also writing it into to constitution of the state of Maryland that is wrong. You get your elected officials off the hook by voting for slots this year. Vote NO and make them work it out as they should have several years ago. Citizens of Maryland DO NOT alow slots to defile the states constitutions. Vote NO to slots. Governor Ehrlich had it right, but there was no special interest, if he was a democRAT his slot bill would have passed and he would still be the Governor. McCain/Palin our only choice 2008.
