Excellent article by Roy on the financial travails of our capital city. Nashville is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the country. Connecticut is one of the wealthiest states in the country. So what does a city in the Mid-South have in common with a New England state? Well two things actually.
1. They are both overwhelmingly governed by Democrats.
2. They are both facing financial ruin due to many decades of unrestrained spending.
If the Democrats can't keep one of the fastest growing cities and one of the wealthiest states financially solvent then why elect them?

From Reuters: "The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has projected the full-year 2020 U.S. deficit to reach $3.3 trillion, or 16 percent of GDP, the highest share since the end of World War Two.”
That is with Republican led Senate, Republican led House until 2018, and a Republican President leading that fact. It is our national reality.
So why elect members of a party that preaches fiscal responsibility and practices financial ruin? The deficit will have to be paid for, and yet tax breaks for wealthy on the backs of the middle class are the norm.
Seriously, why support a kleptocratic party?
