It seems that the government on all levels is out of control. While high property taxes are driving the exodus of people out
of the state, our politicians are dealing with frivolous issues. Our local politicians are wasting time on creating new ordinances for massage parlors (“Chief hopes to rub out illegitimate massage spas,” June 7). Is this the number one problem facing the people in South Brunswick?

The state legislature is debating gay marriage. Marriage should be classified as a private contract involving consenting adults. Government should get out of the business. On the federal level, we are being destroyed by our occupation of Iraq. Our soldiers are being killed and crippled. Our civil liberties are quickly disappearing as we grow further in debt.

The question now is what to do. Stand up and be heard. Act as if the next election is your last, because it could be. Do not forget to buckle up your seat belt.
