When I saw the headline for this editorial, I thought is was going to be a story from a Fitchburg pol.

As I have come to learn. Central Mass is like fly over country for the Gov, on his way to the Berkshires.

The only thing Patrick wants to share is the money out of our paychecks to fund his socialist pet projects.

As with most politicians, they woo you to vote for them, and once in office they show their true colors and go after all their own perks and benefits, and the taxpayers are basically on their own.

the best thing Massachusetts could do, would be to go back to having part time legislatures, and take their huge salaries away.

this would also give them less time to harm the rest of us

Shortly after the gov was elected a family member left for Iraq with a send off ceremony in Concord. No gov to be seen - now nearing election he is seen at many send offs, welcoming home ceremonies and other troop photo ops. Must be a coincidence.......

Devalue Patrick is a close friend of Barack Obama's (they also shared the same campaign strategist, David Axelrod, who peddled the same lines for Obama as he did for Patrick). Patrick's socialist policies are very similar to those promoted by Obama.
Voter disgust with the policies perpetrated by Democrats in Congress has begun to be reflected not just as the federal level but now is sparking a backlash at the state level.
Many may have wondered if Devalue holds the same beliefs as our elitist POTUS who has made a career of telling ordinary Americans they are "mean" or stupid. We needn't wonder any longer. And even liberals are saying they find nothing unusual in this behavior.

Whether Devalue is through or not, we are now aware of how he sees the people he wishes to govern; as props in a grand stage play with him as the star and the people as worshipful extras.

Patrick will win again. Cahill and Baker will split the Indepedent votes and Deval will get most of the Democrats. The final results will be 37% for Patrick, 34% for Baker, and 29% for Cahill.

If everyone would get a clue. The Bush administration sent the economy into never ever land! Do you remember McCain stopping his campaign as him and candidate Obama went to the White house?? They all earmarked trillions to the banks who are tight fist with there money.
The country needs jobs! JOBS! JOBS! We need Bill Gates to stop calling Americans lazy as that unwrinkled man has less stress than GOD himself. He made his money overnight and put the country of INDIA to work while the US sank. All this countries wealthy people took there riches to DUBAI! We need to retrieve this money!
Lets all be honest otherwise we will not get anywhere! The banks lent 1 million dollars to homeowners for a 500,000 home! I built these houses; we would laugh as it took us 4 weeks to frame the mansion and have all the windows,siding and roofing on the house! On the other hand the Banks mortgaged houses to low income people at 21% interest; yes 21% interest. So "THE BANKS" set this recession into motion!
The country allowed Home Depot to sink the construction Industry as guys struggled to compete against the lure of "NO Payments " for a year from Home Depot.Then 60 minutes did a report on the extremely poor craftsmanship that Home Depot was doing!
All the cable jobs went over to INDIA,Telephone co. Almost every service that requires calling someone for assistance got shipped to India! Halliburton stole 1 trillion dollars of US treasures! Nike corporation was the first of many traitor corporations that left the US for India and other countries. The jobs that werent sent to India were given to low wage Brazilian workers over here on visas!
After 911 the Mexican border was wide open! You would think the oposite but No, the Bush cronies wanted illegal workers; even maids and baby sitters for US senators were illegals. Landscapers for Gov. Romney were illegal.Massachusetts was flooded with illegals. Now western union seen an increase of billions of American dollars being sent to relatives in brazil, India and other places.
Gillettes and now GM after being bailed out are leaving the US for China! Since the Reagan years the US never exported anything!!! American riches were circulated and recirculated into the economy. Today One American Dollar is taxed and fees set onto it that equals 5 dollars; so people need to loan money for every dollar they make.
Listen for a moment. When everything was gravy, everyone raised there prices trying to get a piece of the pie! My electric and gas bill from a two bedroom dwelling is $550.00 a month. Courtousy of Unitil who is allowed to run as a MONOPOLY! Every politician who has been in office in central mass should be challenged by everyone and anyone.
The legislature in Boston passed "the insurance legislation". If you have zero tickets over the past seven years your rate is great. If you have one ticket, even for an inspection sticker you are paying 300 dollars extra a year as oppossed to before they changed the law. Insurance companies can cancel you and deny to reinstate your insurance policy if you have that one ticket over seven years! Our politicians have been selling us out for years! They tell us one thing but the truth is the opposite. This new law benefitted all the big insurance companies by billions!
Not only did the big Insurance companies get paid but the registry is getting paid better than anyone in the state. The new registrar has been doubling every fee; they were outrageous before the doubling!!!! She is a crook!
Enough about this republican and democrat thing; they all S. uck. All the banks bad loans and unpaid credit cards got paid by the government!!! All the Banks loses got paid by the government as the Banks lend ZERO!!!!!!!!!

Enduring civilizations understand the parasitic, power-hungry nature of governments and attempt to impose limits on them. When those limits are subverted, as they have been, government metastasizes. Elected offices are turned into self-perpetuating sinecures. The growth of government explodes, claiming, an endless series of crises of need as justification.

The result of unchecked government growth is always the same: increased dependency on government; higher taxes; a massive surge in generational debt; the loss of private sector jobs; and an expansion of the power of bureaucrats with a corresponding reduction of our personal choices and options. In short, unchecked government growth hastens our decline towards coercive collectivism.

The path to renewed prosperity diverges from the highway to economic hell that we are currently on at mile marker 2010. Starting this November, we must begin electing people who understand that low, stable tax and energy rates boosts consumer confidence, attracts new investment and encourages business growth and job creation. We must remove from office anyone who doesn’t celebrate the accumulation of earned wealth.

Devalue Patrick has helped this state live up to its sobriquet Taxachusetts. People are moving to New Hampshire. Those who are not moving there are driving there to buy goods to escape sky-high sales taxes (especially on liquor). Patrick has even explored the possibility of random stops of vehicles coming into Massachusetts to discover whether residents are escaping sales and use taxes by buying liquor over the border.

When we have a governor and ruling class who are clueless about and hostile towards business, the risk-reward equation shifts dramatically against further investment of time, talent, and capital. And that's where we are today.
