“Intellectual freedom cannot exist without political freedom; political freedom cannot exist without economic freedom; a free mind and a free market are corollaries.” – Ayn Rand

Except when a person draws conclusions that would lead them to courses of action other supporting candidates pushed by the McCleskey Clique. Like staying home, or supporting other candidates who seem to be more supportive of things like free-market economics, individual rights, Constitutionally-limited government and public-sector fiscal restraint.

Then that person is simply told “shut up and do as you’re told – what you do want, a Democrat in office?!”

In the online environment, that missive is often misspelled, with many exclamation points added at the end:

“shut up n do as ur told – wat do u want, a Democrat in office!!!!!!”

2. August 17, Saturday. 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon. Walk with Mayor Richard Berry. Meet at the _____________ Ranch Community Park, _____ Universe NW – a little north of ________ Blvd NW on Universe. Look for the Berry for Mayor Signs. For a map, access

First of all, Berry is a Keynesian – he supports big spending public works projects as a way to reward his buddies in the construction industry who donate to his political coffers. I cite the APS West Side Stadium and the proposed 50-mile bike path around the city as examples of his big-spending tendencies. Back in 2011, he pitched these with an op-ed piece in the Albuquerque Journal :

Mayor Urging ‘Yes’ Vote on Tuesday for Bonds

Here’s another bit about a previous version of “ABQ the PLAN” – or perhaps to be resurrected as “ABQ the PLAN II,” to be served up to us in 2014 after Berry’s re-election?

Sports Complex, Bike Trail, Boardwalk And White-Water Park Would Go to Voters

Yeah, that’s what we need – a white-water park. So while We The Private Citizens are directed to limit our water usage, considering that we live in a desert, it’s OK for the public sector to throw the stuff around willy-nilly?

Remember the 50-mile bike path around the city? Yeah, that’s an absolute necessity.

Mayor Seeks Proposals To Complete 50-Mile Bike Loop

Remember the Paseo Project? Originally, the price tag was 46 million, now it’s up to 93 million. I know inflation is getting worse, but this is ridiculous.

So Berry comes across as Obama with an “R” after his name. But he’s got that magic Big R, so he MUST the proper guy to support, correct?

Walking Albuquerque’s Westside neighborhoods with the Mayor will be State Senator Sander Rue, State Representatives Tom Anderson, Paul Pacheco and Monica Youngblood, City Councilor Dan Lewis, and Bernalillo County Commissioner Lonnie Talbert.

Paul Pacheco and Monica Youngblood were two of the eight Republicans who chose to kick gun owners around like a soccer ball when they supported HB77 in the last Legislative session.

As with Richard Berry, they deserve to lose their re-election bids.

Better an up-front enemy than a back-stabber professing friendship.
