Selling Democrats to Western Home Owners

People in the west have a reputation for voting Republican because they believe this way they are more free of government. Sometimes this backfires. NPR’s Morning Edition today has a story entitled Fissures Swallow Arizona Homeowners’ Dreams. Builders pushed through laws which prevent counties from regulating certain types of housing developments, and the title gives away what happened to the poor people who purchased homes. I bet these people would be more open to considering a littles more government regulation, and to throwing out elected officials who are in the pockets of dishonest business interests.
