Despite taxing their citizens to death, deeply liberal states like New York, California, and Illinois face massive, unsustainable deficits. I doubt their leaders are too concerned though as it is guaranteed — they will become such messes that the federal government will step in to bail them out, meaning the rest of us have to foot the bill. There have already been calls for bailouts, but Democrats don’t yet have the monopoly power to do them. Notice they’re already tossing around the descriptor, fiscal “emergency.” Covid emergency, Ukraine emergency, climate emergency, budget emergency….it’s almost like there’s a pattern for pushing through government actions that will piss us off? 🤔
Recent polls show McAuliffe and Youngkin are statistically tied, but call me skeptical. The media keeps calling Virginia a purple state as part of their lowering of expectations in case they lose. But don’t kid yourself, this is a solid blue state. Biden won by over 10 percent in 2020, and remember Virginia is filled with DC commuters; in other words, lobbyists, lawyers, politicians, and others dependent on DC corruption for their living. Republicans haven’t won the state since 2004, and that was with RINO & defense industry heartthrob George W. Bush on the ticket. Terry McAuliffe is as wired into the Democratic political machine and DC swamp as any candidate in the country. He’s a life-long politician going back to his days working for the Jimmy Carter campaign. He was a Clinton operative throughout their reign of terror. He was also once the DNC chairman. McAuliffe has every advantage in the money & infrastructure part of our corrupt political system. The fact this race is even close shows just how fed up the actual voters are.
Youngkin could really win this thing, which would send shockwaves through the Establishment, despite the media’s propaganda campaign to make out like this is a swing state. I suspect McAuliffe will win by 1-2 points, and the media will celebrate it as a validation of the Joe Biden agenda and authoritarian Covidistan policies throughout the country. If that’s the result, as with California and New York, you Virginia voters deserve exactly what you get!
For those of you who haven’t seen Animal House, let me sum up the philosophy of these blue state voters:
