Malloy The Clinton Surrogate-While Connecticut Implodes Economically-President Trump-Vice President Pence

Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy continues to amaze me.  I fully understand that he has been written off as Connecticut's Governor through economically irrational and illogical tax and spend policies.  I fully understand that he has been written off as Connecticut's Governor through his lies about the massive and growing state budget deficits and long term unfunded liabilities currently at $70 billion dollars and growing.  I fully understand that he has been written off as Connecticut's Governor through his lies by a shady reelection mailing he and his staff embraced and then hid with a yet another shady payoff deal with a non operational and politically motivated State Elections Committee.
Now since Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy is in danger of losing his Governorship in 2018 or sooner if impeached, he must audition for another job.  What better type of job for Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy than being a surrogate for the equally shady and unethical Hillary Clinton.  He can bash anyone and everyone so that Clinton sees that he is in her mold, taking down anyone who stands in her way of ruthless power and corruption.  Thus he will granted more power in Washington if the shady and unethical Hillary Clinton gets elected through a badly needed Cabinet position to get him out of Connecticut.
Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy has lost Connecticut.  He and his Connecticut Democrat Party are corrupt and totally insensitive to those in real need of help.  Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy has made a mockery of the State Constitution and the rules that govern the state.  Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy has made a mockery of the budget process.   Now he will make a mockery of the upcoming Presidential campaign
Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy needs to get out of office.
President Trump-Vice President Pence.  Much to the dismay of the tyrant named Dan Malloy.
President Trump-Vice President Pence.

Why Is Our Political System This Messed Up?

Why?
Hillary Clinton for President?
It makes no sense how the Democrat Party of the United States of America could back her with all of the massive character issues that she has.
Why?
Hillary Clinton for President?
Does she really have any type of programs that can help our country especially with its current $20 Trillion dollar National Debt?
Why?
Hillary Clinton for President?
Does she really believe in actual freedom for our country or is she willing to sell it off to finance her Foundation?
Why?
Hillary Clinton for President?
She has many different issues especially likeability when it comes to voting.
I can not see her winning in November nor most of the Democrats running for office.
Maybe it is Time to Take Back America in November.
President Trump-sounds much better to me.

240 Years Of Freedom July 4, 1776 - July 4, 2016

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated  Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Connecticut's Stale 85th House Representative - More Of The Same Tax And Spend Rhetoric

State Representative from the 85th District, Mary Mushinsky, who won her first election in 1980 has been in office since 1981.  Over the past 35 years in office she has voted for nearly every tax increase that has come through the House including the economically debilitating state income tax and more recently the two highest tax increases in the state's history.   Since she is running for reelection Wallingford residents received in the mail on Friday a taxpayer funded four color printed brochure highlighting her "massive" accomplishments this past term.  From her reelection brochure:"Although there were no easy solutions this year, after a lot of hard work we approved a budget that is balanced, without tax or fee increases, without borrowing, and without dipping into the Rainy Day Fund."  Thus yesterday when Connecticut Comptroller Kevin P. Lembo certified a $315.8 million deficit in the outgoing budget and its Rainy Day Fund is now down to $90 million dollars, I am confused as to how Representative Mushinsky has a balanced budget without dipping into the Rainy Day Fund?   Thus one gets a taste of how Connecticut Democrats are able to keep manufacturing their economic lies, a $315 million dollar budget deficit is somehow a balanced budget?  Estimates for the fiscal 2016-17 budget are trending towards a $1 billion dollar deficit, since a great deal of the Democrat budget that she help to pass relies on "projected" savings.  When voters read this they apparently must impressed with the rhetoric as they keep sending her back to office each term.  Why is beyond me when one sees and must live in the economic quagmire of high taxes, high levels of corruption and an infrastructure that is beyond repair that Mushinsky has helped nurture over the past thirty fives years in office.  
The great irony that I find in her being reelected is that several residents in Wallingford feel the town is fiscally mismanaged even though it has a AAA Bond rating and low taxes.   They demand more fiscal conservatism on a local level and endorse the tax and spend policies and economic debacles of Democrat Representative Mushinsky on a state level.  
Have Wallingford taxpayers and voters had enough of Representative Mushinsky?  Can Wallingford taxpayers and voters actually state that they are better off economically than two years ago?  Four years ago?  Since 1991 when the state income tax took effect?  Can it be possible that Wallingford taxpayers and voters have had enough of this economic nightmare of high taxes and high budget deficits that Mushinsky has contributed to since 1981?  Serge Mihaly is this years Republican candidate to unseat Mushinsky.  Maybe taxpayers and voters who have had enough of the Mushinsky rhetoric will vote for him and his fiscal conservatism into Hartford.  Maybe they can try something different to take back Connecticut in November.

Brexit and the United States-God Saved The Queen

I have been asked over the week my thoughts on the Brexit situation and how it impacts our country.  I know this is away from my usual opinions on the worsening Connecticut economic debacle and the highly corrupted state political situation however as an economist I feel I should offer thoughts on it.
First in my opinion I feel it is an excellent choice on the part of Britain to regain its independence and economic sovereignty.  I do not believe nor have seen enough economic evidence that the European Union has created such economic prosperity in Europe and for other countries in the world to justify its expense.  Also I do not believe nor have seen enough economic evidence that the Euro currency has created great economic excitement nor economic stimulation for it to continue to thrive as a viable unified currency.  To me all it has done is propped up weaker countries and placed economic strain on stronger countries (like the United Kingdom).
Secondly the issue of radical terrorism has expanded in the European Union due to open borders and unlimited immigration policies that have been able to allow and nurture terrorism cells especially in France and Belgium.  Europe is far less safe than what it was in 1990.  The European Union liberal drum roll of being politically correct when it comes to immigration and radical terrorism/lack of profiling has created an unsafe and highly dangerous situation for both Europe and the United States.  The citizens of England had enough and chose freedom and  sovereignty as a nation. 
To me all the European Union has evolved in is a bureaucratic liberal experimental think tank that has no checks and balances in it.  They wish to force feed the Union with failed liberal social and economic experiments. 
England in my opinion now will prosper economically and terrorists will have a much more difficult time in their operations in the United Kingdom.  The fear mongering manipulations of our financial markets here in our country make little sense to me economically.  Why the stock market dropped the way it did on Friday proves that fear when properly placed in the media allows for financial/stock swings to beat up the small investors in the market while allowing for massive profits for the stock shorting gamblers and large institutional investors to gain.  There should be no fear over this exit.
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher summed up the issues of the European Union in her famous quote "What we should grasp, however, from the lessons of European history is that, first, there is nothing necessarily benevolent about programmes of European integration; second, the desire to achieve grand utopian plans often poses a grave threat to freedom; and third, European unity has been tried before, and the outcome was far from happy." -- Margaret Thatcher   margaretthatcher.tv
 God saved The Queen this past week and God saved England.  Can God save America next?

Connecticut The Corrupted State

A constitution defined:  is a a body of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state or other organization is acknowledged to be governed.
In my opinion Connecticut has no constitution.  It has no principles or precedents governing.  It has corrupted leadership and elected officials. 
With Connecticut's Omnipotent One Party Rule fully entrenched the constitution be it with regards to a legally binding state constitutional spending cap or with the total disregard for Connecticut's Clean Election Law is ignored. 
It is without question this weeks corrupted agreement between the Connecticut Democrat Party and in particular with Governor Malloy and the State Elections Enforcement Commission was done in secret with no one being allowed to be interviewed by the Commission.  Mr. Malloy and his Connecticut Democrat Party were in  clear violation of House Bill No. 850-Public Act No. 13-60 (which I urge Connecticut Democrats to reread and to comprehend what laws campaign financing should be followed).  Malloy made expenditures well in excess of what this law allows in his mailings in the last election.  It can not be denied nor was it actually investigated by the State Elections Enforcement Commission (which to me now is another tool of the Connecticut Democrat Party).  Should taxpayers and voters expect anything different?
And the question that also needs to be asked is why taxpayers are paying taxes to support such a corrupted regime in Hartford?   If the Constitution is non existent what rule of law are we following in Connecticut?  Thus why are we paying taxes?
Connecticut should be referred to at all times as the "Corrupted State"  I would hope in the next legislative session after more items are taken off budget illegally, more taxes were raised and new taxes implemented, more secret hiring of politically connected Democrats occur, no discussion on most laws or the budget take place that some legislator brings up a law to change the official state nickname to "Connecticut-The Corrupted State".  At the same a new law could also be passed to tax anyone moving out of the state.  An exit tax-a fitting tribute to the cancer that has engulfed our state-the Connecticut Democrat Party.
It is time to take back Connecticut in November.

Connecticut and Its Economic Decline

It is evident that Connecticut is in and has been in an economic decline for many years now.  Since the passage of the Weicker state income tax that was supposed to solve all of Connecticut's problems we still see an economic decline.  For many years now, over and over again.  An economic decline that is far reaching from young and old citizens moving out of state along with many businesses and industries heading elsewhere.  An economic decline that encourages constant non productivity through a political elite ruling class that is embellished with high salaries, benefits and pensions while penalizing those who actually produce and earn their income through yet even new and higher taxes on their wages.  An economic decline that chooses to tax literally anything and everything in a never ending quest for more revenue to constantly satisfy the same political elite ruling class that has helped to bring Connecticut to economic ruin.  An economic decline as viewed by millions of taxpayers dollars being spent on a Hartford baseball stadium that can not be finished nor generate any income in the near future.  An economic decline in which the Governor picks who wins and who loses through taxpayer funded corporate welfare cash given to businesses who donate to his ruling party.
The list is endless in the chronic economic lie that the Connecticut Democrat Party and Dan Malloy have force fed taxpayers for years now.  More and higher taxes continue to bring Connecticut to its economic knees. 
And many of these same Democrats are running for re-election in November for their golden House and Senate seats.  Why?  To further Connecticut's economic decline?  To pad their pensions and benefits?
Think about the continuing economic decline of our state when you vote in November.  If you still live here.  It is time to take back Connecticut.
