Celebrating Connecticut’s role in the American Revolution is a very good idea. The fact that Gov. Malloy is hitching his political star to it is sheer audacity of the highest sort. Gov Malloy, Rep Donovan and others of their same mindset and political leanings represent everything our revolutionary forefathers detested and fought against.
Tyranny in the issuing of executive orders to by-pass the will of the people and their duly elected representatives, the disregarding the will of the people in the matter of the death penalty, in the power given to unions that takes the right to work from others. Tyranny in the form of government agencies that act as feudal lords in regards to their dealing with the taxpayers, in the fact they sign contracts with labor unions and others that the people who pay the bill are forbidden to be part of or view the negotiations. In the total ignoring of the fact that they are elected, appointed and hired to serve the will of the majority of the people, the people are not here to serve them.
Taxation without adequate representation. The constant increasing of taxes to continue to feed the never satisfied hunger of government programs that are doing nothing more then turning Connecticut into a socialist/feudal state where those in power just keep their boot of taxation to the throat of the working taxpayers of Connecticut.
Celebrating the part our forefathers played in the revolution should be a wakeup call to the citizens of Connecticut to demand that our elected officials follow the Constitution of the State of Connecticut. That they hold all government employees elected, appointed or hired accountable to the people of Connecticut. That they not continue to destroy the American Dream of making a better life for oneself and one’s family by taxation.
