Bazzo Says:The Case Against Voting Democrat (Putnam County)

Bazzo Says:
BY ANTHONY J. BAZZO
OF YORKTOWN NEWS & MAHOPAC NEWS

Chris Day. Nita Lowey. Nan Hayworth. Sean Patrick Maloney. Andrew Falk. Justin Wagner. Terrence Murphy.

None of these candidates for office are going to utter an original thought not authorized by their respective party pooh-bahs. These are soldiers, not leaders. 

However, for the offices they seek, that is the primary requirement. The leaders of these respective parties are loath to nominate a candidate they fear will go off the reservation.  This is what it is.

In a representative democracy, which is our governing structure, we elect the candidate we want to fight our battles.

So, your choice next week is to whose beat do you want your candidate to march?

I say this because I cannot think of one reason why anyone who has eyes to see, ears to hear, and a mind that can think for itself, would want to vote for any candidate that would continue to promote the policies that the Democrats in leadership positions have enacted, or are advocating for. In the Congressional races, even though President Obama is not on the ballot, he was correct in saying his policies are and the elected Democrats have had his back and voted for those policies time and time again. Is this the beat in which you want your candidate to march? There is no such thing as a moderate Democrat if they support such policies.

In fact it is these policies that the Democrats are running from. They are trying very hard to re-write history and tell you that they disagree whole heartedly with what is happening even though they voted for or supported the policies that have gotten us to this place. They must lie about who they are, for the truth would surely invite defeat. They manufacture fears that the Republicans are such monsters, that even though the Democrat policies are failures, it is better than what the Republicans would do if elected. 

History does not start when you wake up; nor did it start when you were born. History is.

When the Republicans held all the levers of government, no agency got less money than the year before. There was not one proposal to limit a woman's right to choose, not one!

They expanded Medicare. They expanded the power of the Department of Education. Mom and dad did not receive less money in Social Security, nor were they forced to eat cat food. Economic opportunity was promoted for all, regardless of race or gender. Unemployment was 4.6 percent and I'm not referring to part-time jobs or jobs involving hamburger flipping.

The government did not pick the winners. This is fact. The Democrats lie and play on fear. You must not take counsel of your fears.

This is in fact a government at war with its people. From economic and foreign policies, we see nothing but failure. After six years, anyone who still believes this is President George W. Bush's fault is a lost cause. Lost are also those who made wrong choices and now believe someone owes them a living. I will not bore you with the data I have written about time and time again that show in detail the failures, but I will ask one question: What is it that you want Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney to give us two more years of?

To vote for Maloney is to vote for a representative that will march to the beat of Obama's drum. 

You must remember he lied when he said the government was shut down when it was only 17 percent of the government.

He lied when he said the sequester cut government funding, when in fact it cut the rate of growth. No agency got less money, and in fact agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control got more than requested.

He voted during the partial shut down to keep the war memorials shut to veterans, but supported the march of illegal aliens on those same grounds.

He voted against all the fixes to Obamacare he now says he is in favor of simply because a Republican proposed them. He misrepresents himself because the truth hurts. 

Your choice must be Nan Hayworth. She will be a good soldier and vote for polices that will halt this downward economic spiral economic and disastrous foreign policy.

Is she perfect? Hell no! However, considering the person who now occupies this seat, she can not do worse, and in many cases better.

Also, at least she is not a phoney.

Up in Albany, there can be no choice.

Andrew Falk will not stand up to the corruption. He will not vote for policies that will increase economic opportunity for all. He says he will, but then he says he will vote to make it more expensive to hire someone. He would vote against any opportunity for the Souther Tier to get out of its economic doldrums. He will continue to force us to send money to countries that wish us harm. Even though medical marijuana is settled law, he can not take yes for an answer, because he does not like they way Assemblyman Steve Katz came to his conclusion. Like Justin Wagner, Falk lies about the Women's Equality Act and what it stands for. He lies about Katz's position. Worse, he lies when he says Katz wants to hurt women.

Andrew Falk will continue to march to Gov. Cuomo's drum beat.

Do you really want more of this contempt for the residents of New York? The choice must be Katz.

He too is not perfect, but we are not electing Gods. We are electing a person who can, will and has uttered independent thoughts not sanctioned by the party pooh-bahs, which is why he was not on the list I started this column with. 

Another name not on the list is Rob Astorino.

He has taken the battle to Cuomo. Cuomo blinked.

Cuomo has now run ads saying Astorino, if elected, would enact policies that will kill your mom and dad. Cuomo has an economic and ethical record on which he cannot run. That is why he must lie and scare the beejeebers out of you and make you fear Astorino. The only thing you must fear is four more years of this governor's contempt of anyone who gets in his way.

Cuomo is not a leader, but a bully. He says those who disagree with him have no place in New York. He says he is the government.

This is a mindset that must be feared. If re-elected, it will get worse, and political payback will be ugly. 

Astorino has laid out platforms on economic policy; on energy policy; on education policy; and on fighting corruption. He has told you what he will do if elected. He has shown courage.

You can find Astorino's policies in various postings on my blog, Bazzomanifesto.

Cuomo runs on the fact that under him, we now have gay marriage. Even this, he has marred by not re-appointing the judge who forced the legislature to do its job, the job the governor now touts as a success.  He cannot run on his economic or ethical policies. In fact, his platform is "I will not tell you what it is until after the election."

See. It's contempt for the voter.

The choice must be Astorino, for he has shown leadership while the governor has shown cowardice.

No, the Republicans are not perfect. They have some social beliefs in which even I disagree. However, those beliefs are not on the ballot, nor in danger of ever becoming law. What is on the ballot is the policies of this president and governor.

If you want more crap and fear, vote Democrat.

If you want hope and opportunity for ALL, the you must vote Republican/Conservative.

This is what I say, what say you?
