  • The city and state of New York are committing suicide. Former Mayor
    Rudolph Giuliani once led this city to prosperity and helped unite it
    after 9/11.
    Then came Michael Bloomberg who decided he knew better than you what
    was good for you. You may remember his policy of attempting to ban all
    soft drinks over 16 ounces.
    He and Governor Andrew Cuomo also championed huge gun control measures
    statewide making New York one of the most restrictive anti-gun states
    in the nation.
    Governor Cuomo was then quoted as saying that people who are anti-
    abortion, pro second amendment, and pro traditional marriage, are
    extreme conservatives and “have no place in the state of New York.”
    Cuomo says he’s a practicing Catholic but his own church is opposed to
    two out of three of his get out of New York points.
    Then came newly elected New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio. Pledging
    to address income inequality between the rich and poor, that he calls
    “A tale of two cities,” he won a resounding victory in November with
    more than 70% of the vote.
    At De Blasio’s inauguration, former President Bill Clinton called
    income inequality a moral outrage and said eliminating it will “give
    people the security they need to tackle problems like climate change.”
    The first way to conquer this they say are tax increases. The first
    proposed tax increase is on people with incomes over $500,000.
    New York City and state taxes together already constitute one of the
    highest tax burdens in the country and any more could drive those
    taxpayers to states with lower taxes.
    To further his agenda, Mayor De Blasio announced he is cutting $210
    million in funding set aside for charter schools.
    He argued that charter schools have a “destructive impact” on
    traditional schools even though charter schools have given thousands
    of low income minority children their only shot at a decent education.
    Children opting out of traditional public schools are a threat to the
    teachers’ unions, which supported De Blasio during his campaign so he
    will do whatever he can to stop the expansion of these programs.
    De Blasio also declared that New York City’s public schools will be
    closed for at least two Muslim holy days.
    So now what if students from other various ethnicities now demand
    their uniquely ethnic holidays be added to the school vacation calendar?
    Page 2 of 2 - Mr. De Blasio then claimed that the city is “underserved” by its
    dozens of abortion locations and pledged to help abortion supporters
    wipe out pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. He campaigned for
    increased access to abortion providers despite New York City having
    the highest abortion rate in the country. According to New York
    Magazine, approximately 41% of pregnancies in New York City end in
    To appease the animal rights activists, the new mayor has vowed to get
    rid of the horse-drawn carriages in Central Park and replace them with
    electric cars. This is a wildly popular tourist attraction that’s been
    around for 100 years. If that wasn’t enough, De Blasio plans to give
    illegal aliens city government issued ID cards, allowing the access to
    city services.
    Bill De Blasio is sending New York City toward the inevitable
    destruction that is the fascist nanny state and Governor Cuomo has
    sent a message that it’s not acceptable to be a conservative in the
    state of New York.
    They represent the direction that every liberal wants to head.
    They call it progressive but it’s actually regressive. Ask any Marxist
    what our government’s responsibilities should be, and they will give
    you a laundry list of things that aren’t expressed in the constitution.
    The problem is that these ideas have been tried many times before, and
    every single time, they have failed miserably. Marxist philosophies
    never work.
    As New York turns into a leftist progressive dream state, reality will
    rear its ugly head.
    In a city where democrats outnumber republicans six to one and where
    it’s possible for children without insurance to literally get a sex
    change operation at taxpayer expense, nothing should surprise us.
    This is a leftist progressive’s dream and when it all implodes, it’ll
    once again be conservatives that will be asked to bail them out.
