    Thank you Chronicle for covering this! We need more in-depth coverage of politics on the grassroots level.

    Heck seems to be the only one who understands that no Democratic candidate can expect to use 2008 election as a template. Voters ARE angry at government. Taxpayers don't want to pay more.

    We actually want LESS government. People are resourceful, we can do many things ourselves.

    We DEMAND fiscal responsibility!

    The private sector is best at job creation. We just want an even playing field, and that doesn't mean government giving a preference to one group over another.

    We want representatives to think independently from their party's leadership. Read the bills, and don't vote until you understand them and the ramifications for the future.
