Here is the email, with the name of the writer edited out so that he doesn't think that I'm mocking him -
Craig,My response -
My name is XYZ,
I have lived here for over 50 years and prefer a Conservative form of government. You say that want more MA people to move out here to change the Lege to Dem.
I say to you, as I say to the Illegals that come to America and want to change our form of government--- Go back home and enjoy
Your form of government that you had there, and leave us to our form of government that works quite well.
XYZ,I took it easy too, to avoid looking like I was mocking him - I could have pointed out that not only can't we see the light at the end of the tunnel, but that the "conservative" government that he reveres so ardently has probably sold off the tunnel the same way that it sold off state properties like the buildings of the legislature.
Arizona has one of the worst education systems in the country.
Arizona has a crumbling infrastructure.
Arizona has one of the weakest economies in the country.
Arizona has the highest (or nearly the highest) per capita budget deficit in the country.
There is no light at the end of the tunnel for Arizona.
With all due respect, what is working "so well" with Arizona's conservative government?
