Andrew Cuomo may be campaigning for Governor of the Empire State as a new kind of Democrat, committed to fiscal responsibility, but Mario Cuomo’s son, like all New York Democrats, is tied to the special interests and corrupt politicians that put the state in the mess that it’s in.
For obvious reasons, the Republican nominee for Governor has is temperamentally ill-suited to helm a large state (or any state for that matter), particularly in a time of fiscal crisis. And his temperament may well be the least of his many problems.
Warren Redilch, the Libertarian Party nominee for Governor, has shown he’s up to the task of fixing the Empire State. Particularly given the underlying philosophy of his party, this member of the Guilderland Town Board is the ideal candidate to clean up Albany.
On his website, he sums up his governing agenda in three points:
- Cut spending
- Eliminate several state agencies including corporate welfare
- Cap bureaucrat pay and pensions
Heck, isn’t that what Republicans are supposed to be doing? The rest of his agenda sounds just right to me. And Redlich has done what the Republican nominee has failed to do; he’s called out the Democratic nominee:
Not only did he—unlike pit bull-turned-poodle Carl Paladino—repeatedly skewer governor-in-waiting Andrew Cuomo, he also provided what I thought was the defining moment of the seven-way scrum.
In his closing comment, Redlich referenced Cuomo’s campaign donors to flay his supposed reform agenda: “$23 million in special-interest contributions and $55,000 from a parking lot [owner] —does that sound like change to you?”
