I believe the majority of ISHN readers would prefer to read about REAL safety issues and not see your publication cross into the political world. I grew up in Texas and if you don't want to get a fellow mad at you then don't talk about politics, his wife or his dog. People have a legitimate concern about reducing the size of government. The average pay for federal employees is more than private sector employees. OSHA is continually hiring while private businesses are laying-off. The EPA, instead of regulating, now legislates and bases its decisions on "junk science".

I for one have respect for the new generation of Republicans & Tea Partyer's and hope they stick to the principles on which this country was founded.
