Very few...maybe a handful...hardly a threat at all so liberalism runs rampant along with corruption and nepotism.

For the most part all of the villians are all Democrats because there aren't many Republicans at all.

Mass House of Representatives

Democrats- 143
Republicans- 16

That explains a lot.

I didnít know it was that one sided. Massachusetts seems almost like a one party state. They do elect Republican governors from time to time though. There was Norm Weld, then there was Romney. There may have been others before that.

But I assume Republicans have to be moderates to get elected in Massachusetts. Indeed, I think both Weld and Romney were liberals (Romney changed to conservative positions after he decided to run for President).

Probably if they were accepting US dollars...your money is going down faster than a hookers knickers on a Friday night.


Seriously though, we have an extradition treaty with the US so if you commit a crime in the States, you can be sent south for prosecution. I don't know about the company itself.

Almost a one party state? It IS a one party state. Romney and Weld were outsiders and Romney was always conservative. However the disproportion of state reps in the democrat party makes the govenor more like a figure head. Even our current governor is a fighure head. The real power is with the Speaker of the House. If the governor wants anything done he has to answer to the Speaker. If anyone stands up to the speaker they get it rammed where the sun doesn't shine.

Billy Bulger kept Billy Weld (our first GOP Gov in years) completely in check as well as the house.

But that is what we get here in Mass corrupt liberal speakers of the house...one after the other.

Nothing more need to be said about Massachusetts than the mindless re-election of the two most despicable low-lifes in American history: The Chappaqudick swimming champion, Ted Kennedy and the winner of Purple Heart for self-indicted wounds, John, the gigolo Kerry.

Teddy K. and Chappaqudick. Hey...he had a political career to look out for. He had to get home and sober up before he called the police the next morning to let them know that he went off the bridge with a young blonde...who is still in the car. The Kennedy machine was already in high gear before the police were brought in. A slap on the wrist for a drunk driven, leaving the scene of an accident, and a fatality. Tough luck Mary Jo!

Kerry's wounds although not self inflicted were mere scratches. But he needed those 3 purple hearts to get out of Vietnam and back to the ladies and Daddy's money.

The difference being that a Dem in the states is about on par with conservatives here while repubs are right wing nuts that make Harper look smart. They don't have much that comes close to dippers except the odd union leader that isn't Mafia connected. Probably because all the socialists from England could only get into commonwealth countries while those that worked went to the US.

I have heard that said many times by Canadians...that Dems are like Canadian conservatives. We have some real whacko Democrats here that I am sure that they would give your Libs a run for their money.

Some Democrats here are conservative Democrats. My Congressman Steve Lynch falls into that category. He ran for the state house as he was working as a Union Steel Worker. Union or not...those guys aren't Birkenstock wearing liberals.
