The perils of one-party rule [Letter]

It's time for conservatives, Republicans, moderate Democrats and independents to end the liberal Democrats' one-party rule of Maryland.

The latest example of that is Annapolis' reckless passage of the so called "Fairness for all Marylanders Act of 2014," which will permit men to share public bathrooms with women and girls ("Assembly passes transgender rights bill," March 27).

This foolish law will become effective on Oct. 1 and enough is enough already. We've seen liberal Democrats raise the gas tax, force small businesses to leave Maryland because of onerous regulations, impose a nickel bag tax at stores in Montgomery County and a rain tax on property owners, and run wealthy taxpayers out of the state.

It's time to end the liberal Democrats' one-party rule in Maryland.

Al Eisner, Silver Spring
