    anyone. My point was simply that perhaps Republican small government types will only come to terms with the fact their their entire world view leads to stagnation, higher mortality rates and higher, not lower costs of living, when they are finally able to live their dream that becomes a nightmare.

    I am a Virginian who returned to Virginia almost 15 years ago to be closer to family and my husband and I planned to retire here. But, every day I turn around and find some horrible new policy or practice put into place by McDonnell and the Republicans who dominate the statehouse as they pass their ALEC and far right wing agenda. Unless the state makes a turnaround, we have completely lost our desire to remain here. People can and do make choices about where they live. Everyone I know in the DC burbs prefers to live in Maryland right now as opposed to Virginia.

    Right now the litmus test for Republican Red State stupidity combined with cruelty and callousness is the governors denying their states the Medicaid expansion offered under the ACA. They literally prefer that people die as opposed to providing life-saving government services. Disgusting.

    “Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” FDR
