    People try here.  The personal costs of challenging people like the Governor are exceptionally high.  Most people in SC are terrified of the Government.  We get huge amounts of secret support from people afraid that they will lose their job.

    This morning's demonstration against Romney / Haley was small, but worthwhile.

      for the courtesy of your reply, and the information. How truly sad it is when people become afraid of the government that is supposed to serve them. I know, power corrupts, but there seems a voluntary leap into dictatorial actions by Republican governors this cycle. The will of the people is ignored, and opposition is ignored or bullied.

      I wonder sometimes if this is how the decline of Rome felt to the people of the Empire.
