Maryland slots debacle: We get the government we deserve

It is no longer amazing that our major political party, the Democrats, are hell bent on spreading gambling across our state when just a few years ago they said no thank you to Gov.Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a Republican. If this isn't obvious to the readers by now I don't know what else to say.

Once again I can see that the politicos have sliced up their piece of the pie, and now they are satisfied. We will probably once again vote them all back in for the next four years and listen to our fellow Marylanders complain. Was it Ben Franklin who said "We get the government we deserve"?
