Yes, Fla, Mich and Mass had Republican govs, that is in name only.
What do these states all have in common? A huge illegal problem that they can't talk about because it isn't PC!
“Hitler did not have to destroy democracy; he merely took advantage of the decay of democracy and at the critical moment obtained the support of many to whom, though they detested Hitler, he yet seemed the only man strong enough to get things done.” F. A. Hayek from his book, "The Road To Serfdom".
Although Mass may have had "Republican" governors, we have been completely, as Booty says, "dominated by Democrats".....
Here is the current Republican representation in Mass:
Massachusetts Statewide Officers:
Control of the State Legislature
Members of the United States Congress:
- Seats Held in the State House of Representatives: 16 (10%)
- Seats Held in the State Senate: 5 (12.5%)
It has been this way for as long as I can remember. To believe that Mass is or has been anything but "dominated by Democrats" is simply not true.
It wouldn't hurt my feelings if prospective voters had to take a written test to show they had a grasp of the issues in elections. I also think that one ought to be an incometaxpayer or have paied such taxes in the past, eg retired people. The freeloaders shouldn't be voting our taxes up.
There is no 'right" to drive a car, but yet you must pass a written & a proficiency test in order to get a license to do so. I think that who's running the country is bit more important than that.
If you can't read the ballot and understand how it works, i.e. "butterfly ballots, hanging "chads" etc., you have NO business voting for the Presidential electors or any other office, imo! It's not "rocket surgery"!
Also, if you're old enough to enlist, fight & die for this country, you're damn well old enough to vote for the CinC that going to send you there.

HEAR! HEAR! That includes members of the cabinet.
But I'm with the folks that are saying if we could just stop the dead and illegals from voting...so frequently..
Like when our mentally challenged Democrat Senator in Sodak won, by getting more votes from the Pine Ridge reservation than there are people...period.
Dayum, I'm even contemplating running against Johnson next time. Getting that res vote is soooo simple...Busch and ice cream.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
