The Michigan State Senate Is Adjourned.
Thank you to the courageous Republicans who resisted the allure of vote trades, pressure from lobbyists and special interests, and did NOT see fit to lay a long term burden on Michigan Taxpayers.
And a special thank you to Senator Richardville for upholding senate caucus tradition, and while even supporting the bill, kept to protocol by holding for a majority in the Republican Caucus before bringing the bill to the full senate. This has done more to solidify Republicans strength than might be appropriately expressed here.
Thanks for the BOLD COLORS!
Have a great summer.

No politician that I am aware, has elicited the kind of emotional fondness from both sides of the political spectrum as Ronald Reagan. Often, the praise exhibited by those on the left is that which describes him as a President who got along and compromised with Democrats. And often the praise from the right is that which recognizes his stalwart conservatism.
Many of us have seen the speech in which the gipper talks of principled leadership:
I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, "We must broaden the base of our party" - when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.
His impatience not unlike our own which can be brought about by those Republicans who sway from their convictions, who are well wishing, and cannot find the ability to stand solidly during tests of principle.
