For readers in shock from Sun articles about the Maryland state government's drive to take more and more of our hard-earned money, there is a solution. Maryland government is now controlled by interests that strongly benefit from an ever-increasing welfare state. My friend Tom calls them the "tax-takers" - public sector unions, urban developers, public service providers, and socialists/communists. By taking advantage of low voter turnout in primary elections, these groups make sure that tax-takers and their friends vote, so pro-tax Democratic candidates always win the primaries.

For the city's 32,000 registered Republicans -- and 18,000 registered independents who can vote in the GOP primary -- the mayoral race is a low-key contest between Victor Clark, a car salesman, Arthur Coffey, a retired budget analyst, and S. Scott McCown, a security consultant.The Sun endorses Mr. Clark, a one-time Democrat who 20 years ago became a GOP convert and is the second vice chairman of the Maryland Republican Party. His leadership offers the best hope to begin the process of building a genuine two-party system in this city.

The battle for Maryland's Republican voters intensified yesterday, with Mitt Romney seeking a strong showing in Tuesday's presidential primary to halt the momentum of John McCain. Until now, none of the Republican presidential candidates had established a strong campaign organization in Maryland, political observers said. But the state's 37 delegates have gained significance after this week's Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, as McCain scrambles to clinch the nomination and Romney hopes to stay alive in the race.

GOP perspective on DeRan news While I congratulate Craig H. DeRan on his recent appointment to the Democratic Central Committee, to a large extent his appointment is the result of the Republican Party's success in Harford County. Mr. DeRan is actually filling the third vacancy the Democratic Central Committee has experienced in a little more than a year's time. In fact, a few of the former members of the Democratic Central Committee are now registered Republicans. During the same timeframe, the Republican Central Committee has had no vacancies.

DOVER, PA. -- In the end, voters in Dover said they were tired of being portrayed as a northern version of Dayton, Tenn., a Bible Belt hamlet where 80 years ago a biology teacher named John Scopes was tried for illegally teaching evolution. On Tuesday, the residents of Dover ousted all eight school board members running for re-election who had put their town in a global spotlight - and their school district on trial - for being the first in the nation to introduce intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in science class.

Although you may not have seen a bumper sticker, button or billboard, Maryland is holding a presidential primary next week. "We've been doing this on a zero budget," said Tony Caligiuri, state chairman of Republican John McCain's effort. "Everything is just sort of spontaneous volunteer activity." Maryland is one of 11 states holding primaries March 7 -- Super Tuesday. But the election here is overshadowed by votes in New York, California and Ohio as well as what is essentially a regional primary in five New England states.
