There is a race to insanity in the Democratic party. Congressional Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Robert Menendez and others show us their deep rooted insanity almost daily. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has been showing us his for the past year as he works hard to protect illegal immigrants and ignore the hard working law abiding citizens of New Jersey. Lately we’ve talked about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his Declaration of Independence from Washington and the pardons and commuted sentences he granted 29 illegal criminal immigrants facing deportation for their crimes. Not to be outdone Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took his turn.
In a November interview with New York Magazine de Blasio said that the average American should not have a right to control property. de Blasio says the government should control property.
de Blasio was asked “In 2013, you ran on reducing income inequality. Where has it been hardest to make progress? Wages, housing, schools?” His answer should be frightening to not only New Yorkers but all Americans. This is where the socialist wing of the Democratic party is heading.
“What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development”. de Blasio went on to say “Look, if I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see, and I think what we have, in this city at least, are people who would love to have the New Deal back, on one level. They’d love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality”.
Perhaps before de Blasio pushes his socialist dream he should address the problems in New York. There are homeless practically everywhere, traffic in the city is a nightmare, the subway system is a mess, New Yorkers pay the nation’s highest taxes while services are being decreased, violence against police continues to increase and high school graduation rates and test scores are down. Meanwhile de Blasio claims to be a great manager claiming his policies and leadership deserve “parades out in the streets”.
There must be something in the water in New York that breeds socialism. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be from the Bronx (she was born there but grew up in Westchester County) and is socialism’s rising star. de Blasio appears to want the government to control every aspect of your life. First he wants to take away citizens second amendment rights to keep and bear arms then he wants to control your property rights. What’s next?
There is a deep rooted problem in the Democratic party that is putting American freedom and safety at risk. We cannot allow these radical Democrats to continue to put the lives of Americans in danger while taking away the freedoms that our forefathers fought for. We must stop Democrats from using the American people like pawns in their political games. In upcoming elections we have to send a message to the Democratic party that we’ve had enough! It’s time that extreme left wing politicians like Murphy, Cuomo, de Blasio, Booker, Menendez, Schumer, Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez who are putting partisan polices and their socialist dreams before the American people GO! Please note that although I’m from New Jersey when I say “go” I don’t mean “go” as Tony Soprano would. Please just vote them out of office!
