NY Governor Dubs Politicians Bloodsuckers
Democratic New York Governor David Paterson described politicians as bloodsuckers. Democratic and Republican state legislative leaders and their minions have been squealing like stuck pigs.
Paterson is correct in his description of his colleagues. But what about himself as a governor and state senator?
Where does he stand on eminent domain, corporate welfare, and the welfare state in general? What about Willets Point, Atlantic Yards, or Manhattanville eminent domain schemes? He supported a property tax cap. But what about the sales tax, the income tax and the numerous taxes dubbed fees by the bloodsuckers? What about the state debt that has us New Yorkers in bondage? Does he support the Empire State Development Corporation?
If we want to stop having bloodsuckers in office, we can vote for a Libertarian for New York governor and Libertarians any chance we can. If the Libertarian Party gets 50,000 votes for governor, we become an official party and it becomes easier to run candidates for office at all levels.
The vampire state must be combatted by exposure and libertarianism through the Libertarian Party. -30-
