Stacking The Deck
Sometimes it does seem that the deck is stacked against the average person – the hard working folks that watch as their incomes are taxed away by politicians. Politicians that take credit for what the taxpayer makes possible and then turn to denigrate the very taxpayers that contribute the most. Voters allow politicians to pit one group of people against another and quietly sit back while these “public servants” pick winners and losers. We think it’s time for this game to end.
Jon Corzine may bet his own bankroll in the upcoming campaign – but only so that he can win control over all of ours. As we have said before, we believe Senator Corzine should be free to spend his money any way he chooses; we just don’t think he has the same right with ours.
Mr. Corzine could have accomplished much good with the $75 or so million he has spent thus far on his political ambition, instead he has chosen to spend it on himself. Remember that the next time you hear him speak of his devotion to helping the poorest and weakest amongst us. Remember his priorities with each Corzine ad you see and commercial you hear – it’s all about Jon and not about you.
