The greater the number of regulations, and the higher the taxes, the worse the economy will be. It is a simple truth that truly wise men, like Thomas Jefferson got, yet, the educated elites amongst today’s Liberals simply cannot, or more likely will not accept it. Milton Wolf has a piece that clearly shows how the ever growing Nanny Statism, and over taxing in New York is driving New Yorkers out!
Hey New Yorkers, how’s your nanny-state mayor working out for you?
Mayor Bloomberg has set his cross hairs on trans fat foods, sugary sodas, plastic shopping bags, outdoor smoking … jobs, low taxes … but I’m sure he knows what’s best for you.
A new Marist College poll shows that 36% of New Yorkers under the age of 30 are planning to leave New York within the next five years – and more than a quarter of all adults are planning to bolt the Empire State.
The New York City suburbs, with their high property values and taxes, are leading the exodus, the poll found.
Of those preparing to leave, 62% cite economic reasons like cost of living, taxes – and a lack of jobs.
What fools like Bloomberg fail to learn is that people, by their very nature, yearn for liberty, and not for a government to take the place of their parents, or to rob them of most of their earnings. The Liberal Utopia is a place that exists not in any reality, but only in the deluded minds of the Collectivists like Bloomberg. People like Bloomberg wish to use government to control people, through taxes and regulations, and that is a recipe that will never work out. It never has, and it never can because it goes against the natural order that God created. Chief in that natural order is that people are indeed endowed, not by government, but by their Creator with certain natural rights. Any form of government that runs contradictory of this simple truth will fail miserably.
Face it Bloomberg, you can no more change God’s will or design than you can stem the tides or still the rivers He created. Yes Mayor Bloomberg, it turns out that God IS a whole lot smarter than you are. Part of the wisdom of Jefferson, Franklin, Mason, Washington, and Madison was that they could accept the simple truths, Leftist madmen can never accept those truths. Men like you, Mayor, will never possess wisdom, because, unlike our Founders, you seek to elevate yourself, and government above both mankind and the God that Created mankind.
