The Failure of the NM Political Blogoshpere

However you slice it;
another legislative session is come and gone
without ethics reform in NM State Government.

The culture of corruption that is public service in NM
remains relentless in its refusal to be held honestly
accountable for their conduct and competence as public

I would posit that;

there is no more important issue to the people of
New Mexico than ending the culture of corruption
and incompetence in state government.
and further that;
There is no law that cannot be passed in
the NM Legislature by 10,000 voter/taxpayers
on the steps of the roundhouse.

No one outside of the state's largest newspapers has the
wherewithal to even hope to get 10,000 people to Santa Fe.

The record of the media is that they have no interest
in engineering change in NM government.

By their record political bloggers have demonstrated
that they have an interest in engineering change,
but lack the wherewithal to put 20,000 boots on the steps
in Santa Fe.

That is a shame because bloggers are simply the last,
best hope for informed democracy.

It is a shame that there is no cause that will unite them
in a single purpose.

Not even a non, bi, a-partisan issue like ethics reform
in a state government so corrupt and incompetent

as to be a national laughing stock.
