Really....Paladino?
« on: September 15, 2010, 01:35:04 AM »
How many elections do you expect to win with a person who wants to send the poor people to camps to teach them hygiene?

Because we know that all poor people in NYC are that way because they don't know how to shower.


that is how you win an election?

Sending poor people off to a  concentration camp....?

Oh and by the way.....Paladino made his wealth with office towers in Buffalo full of state employees.

Can a single GOPer such As FZ or Bill see the Irony of that wealth.

Will Paladino cut the budget enough that it will result in empty towers in buffalo? And a decrease in Paladino's wealth?

Just goes to show that anything can happen. We'll have to work hard to make sure that regressive lunatic goes down in November.

He's not regressive in any way, the so called progressives are.  I looked into his reccord and plans, I was not too aware of him till yesterday.  He has my  vote in November.  He's had lots of success in his past, unlike the usual poititions.    What did Cuomo ever do?  His father was good, he just rode in on father's coat tails. 

Let me guess--Palladino is not for gay marriage, therefore, you won't vote for him.

It is interesting that you liked Mario Cuomo, an ardent Progressive.  What did you like about him?

Paladino is a wild-eyed fanatic and, like most Republicans, he'd happily roll back decades of progress and bring back the days of debtors prisons. We need Democrats to restore America's progress and prosperity. Our President succeeds to the degree he shakes off the conservative influence in Washington and takes a stand for ordinary Americans. Cuomo will succeed by the same measure in Albany.

On the plus side, you conservatives are really doing the country a favor by nominating nutjobs like Paladino and O'Connell in Delaware. Please keep it up--extremist lunacy like yours is destroying the GOP. You can enjoy a lot of electoral success this year but you don't have a shot for NY's governorship and your wackadoo nonsense is going to bury you in the long term. Thanks for the laughs, don't let the door hit you on the way out!

So Republicans vote for the imperfect different, while Democrats ride the same brain dead incumbents. Paladino deserves to win the Republican primary simply because he is not Rick Lazio. He deserves to be the next governor because he is not Cuomo. The term "progressive" is a perfect Orwellian example of the perversion of the English language. Progressive to what? More subservience to our political betters.
In this state, I will vote for anyone who is not an incumbent. In this district, the Socialists (or Progessives you choose) just renominated an incumbent who has provided aid and comfort to the corrupt, while prospering from their fund raising. She has voted on bills that she has not read, which affect every citizen (most negatively). She has accomplished nothing of import. (Spare me the credit card stuff, I defy you to find a handful of non-political people who were helped by this).
All the while supporting insane, economy bashing measures like card check and cap-and-trade.

I dread the upcoming Republican majority in the house, because I don't think they got it through there heads that the nation is screaming, "DO LESS, SPEND LESS". The only thing I dread more is the "progressives" having anymore say in anything that has to do with the economy.

I'm a progressive because I'm an American and America has always striven to move forward toward a more perfect embodiment of our core values. I grew up in a country with the progressive values that tell me we're all in this together and everybody benefits when everybody pitches in. These progressive American values are about making sure people who play by the rules have a chance to go as far as they can in life. They're also about making sure people who don't play by the rules don't get an unfair advantage. Progressives know you don't let the fox guard the hen-house and we know you don't let corporations regulate themselves.

We remember from history class that the Progressive Era expanded the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution and brought women the vote and protected children from being put to work. Progressive reforms continue to protect our families from unknowingly buying spoiled or unsafe food and when regressive conservatives roll back these protections, we see salmonella outbreaks.

So if you're against all that, I don't know what you are. But if you're for bedrock American values like fairness and justice and caring for your neighbor, well then you're a progressive like me.

And somehow, in practice, you turn that into compulsory forfeiture of legally gotten assets to be distributed to whomever the ruling class deems "less fortunate".

No they're not. They are about punishing success outside of government. And rewarding those who are willing to bow and scrape and behave in progressive approved behaviour. It is also about demeaning private sector (also known as the productive sector) success.

If by playing by the rules, you consider giving large donations to government in exchange for government contracts "the rules" than I guess you're right.

Right on cue. The evil corporations. Here is the thing. Without Progressive intervention, I am free to use or not use any corporations I so choose. Under the wonderful Progressive ideology, the Progressives will choose what corporation I can use. Progress thanks for saving me from my bad choices.

Constitution and brought women the vote
...and then they voted for Prohibition. Gee thanks

How's that working out. By the way, a free market could accomplish this with no cost to the consumer. But there would be no chance of Government graft, so I doubt progressives will go for it.

That's an easy one. I'm for personal freedom.

Sweeper, thanks for choosing a public forum to showcase your nonsensical beliefs and cult-like worship of the almighty Market. Keep that up--seriously. Repeat that stuff to as many people as you possibly can and, when you do, be sure to make it clear that you like Republicans in general and Paladino in particular. Thanks a bunch!

Well, the market sort of makes it possible for you nice progressive folks to do all this nice progressive stuff. 

P.S. Oddly enough, I do not remember any sort of movement to repeal food safety laws, but hey, if that's the hill you want to fight on, be my guest.  I must have missed "rolling back food safety laws so we can spread salmonella" anywhere in the platform of the GOP or the various Tea Party Groups.  At least that is an actual, defined issue one could debate.  The rest of the post Sweeper responded to is campaign website gibberish-it sounds good, but it has no concrete meaning.
There is no such thing as a stupid question
There are, however, many inquisitive idiots :)
