Today I have a column at Examiner on the Ovide Lamontagne event in Atkinson NH (Sunday I’ll talk about the great pizza place there as well) and I talk about what Chris Christie said:
Governor Christie gave a rousing 18 minute speech that gave a message well-tailored to New Hampshire
If you let a liberal politician in the door and give them permission to give you a new tax, they only know one direction for that tax to go and that’s up
He game a specific example from his home state:
“35 years ago we didn’t have an income tax in NJ no income tax like right here in NH, we had no income tax and Governor Brendon Byrne, a democrat said: If you just give me a small income tax, a little one, I will lower your property taxes, we had the highest property taxes in America back in 1977 so 35 years later, what have we got? We’ve STILL got the highest property taxes in America and the income tax that started at 2% under governor Byrne is now 9%”
By all means click on the story as I’m paid by the click, but even better that the article is this except of the Christie speech I’ve already posted.
As a rule I don’t excerpt my videos and the full speech is awesome but this closing section is one of the best arguments I’ve ever heard vs liberalism. If it was played in every single household of parents with children or grandparents they would never elect another tax & spend liberal again.
