I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Scott Brown for U.S. Senate

As a former resident of Massachusetts I encourage the election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate. He would be the first Republican senator from Massachusetts since the late Edward Brooke. Brown would break the string of hideously vain and corrupt politicians supported by the Massachusetts Democratic Party. People like Patrick Kennedy, Barney Frank and Gerry Studds, just to name a few. Attorney General Martha Coakley is probably a nice woman, but she is just another in the list of rubber-stamping politicos, whose allegiance to party is greater than their allegiance to the voters. The Democratic machine in Massachusetts, especially in Boston, has little concern for the residents of the state. The party’s support for big government, high taxes and cradle to grave social policies clearly reflect the view that government that governs most, governs best. It is a view championed by the state’s leading intellectual property Robert Reich. His long-winded lectures at Harvard and the views he currently espouses have not evolved since 1980. It is time for a change and Scott Brown can bring one to the state of Massachusetts.
