As an example, the government just canceled a contract they had with Northrop, ending another countless number of jobs. We can't call our Congressmen or women as they approve of the move.
In fact, we have only a handful of Congress people to turn to if we need our voices heard but, since they hold no power in our state government, it stops there. All we can do is complain. They have redistricted us out of relevance.
It’s one thing to stay and fight a fire in the kitchen, but it’s another thing entirely to stay and fight when the flaming house is crashing down upon your head. Good luck.
