Democrat Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is considering a run for the Oval Office. O’Malley’s brand of political correctness comes at the expense of others’ rights. No citizen’s rights should be suppressed, especially for others’ financial gain. That is slavery. A recent article stated how 50 percent of Marylanders would opt to relocate to another state. I moved to Maryland in 2006 and always thought it was a great state for opportunity. But with the high taxes and extreme liberalism, I left. When I moved there, I was surprised at how complete strangers thought how I should be responsible for their kids, and the state of Maryland did nothing to these women who were willing to dump their kids on total strangers. I had to go to court on several occasions and contact various school districts to prove that I was not responsible for total strangers’ children. As a former educator, I was surprised at how the state of Maryland did not intervene to track the negligent mothers and their activities. Being from the heartland of America, we have laws against such behavior. No federal grant should be used for people to profit and to control an American’s life.
