No state voted more lopsidedly for the 2016 Republican presidential candidate than Wyoming, where voters gave President Donald Trump the nod with more than 68 percent of the vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 22 percent. Clearly, Cowboy State voters are ready for a change in the way the nation is governed and are tired of political “business as usual.”

How strange that in the same month the nation is inaugurating a Republican president, Wyoming’s state Republican Party leadership is pushing an old liberal political trick – significant tax burdens and new regulations on internet commerce. It’s done in the name of fairness, but there’s nothing fair about it.
