The liberal philosophy of government exemplified by New York Gov. David Patterson, whose response to a $15 billion deficit is to impose $4 billion in new taxes on everything from soft drinks to shoes. (H/T: Amanda Carpenter.)

  1. Fine, they can join California in evicting their millionaire and billionaire clubs. It is always fun to watch. Unfortunately, when the rich leave, the take their liberalism with them, infecting the rest of the nation.

    You would think they would understand if their liberalism makes it too expensive for them to stay, why would they wish to impose it elsewhere or continue supporting it in the first place? Money must certainly be the root of all evil.
