New Mexico Democratic Party Chairwoman Diane Denish's opinion that lying to
our citizens and our children is responsible, while telling the truth is
somehow malfeasance, provides us with a clear picture of her character.
Contrary to her bizarre beliefs, honesty continues to be the best policy.

Whether one agrees with Gov. Gary Johnson or not, to hear an elected
official voice an honest opinion in the face of such overwhelming odds is
quite refreshing, to say the least.

It's time we faced up to the fact that America's drug policy is a disaster
by any measure and threatens the very foundations of our nation.

Congratulations, New Mexico - you've accomplished a darned near impossible
feat and elected an honest person as your governor. For this I salute you.
