Republican Lennie Thompson wants Frederick County to get out while it can.

On Friday, the Frederick County commissioner expressed dissatisfaction with the state's fiscal policies and proposed that the county secede from Maryland.

Thompson says that when voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury, democracy is doomed.

The resolution is on the agenda for the commissioners' work session Tuesday in Frederick.
