Ian Murphy is the Green Party candidate in the NY-26 special election. He was denied entrance to a Tea Party endorsement meeting (spoiler alert: they endorsed the Republican, Jane Corwin), so he hung out in the parking lot dressed like a founding father, handing out literature. I set up the video to start when he encounters a tea partier who’s extremely concerned that raising taxes on the rich will make them move away, thus wrecking the economy.
I may just be in a nutpicking mood this morning, but this is the rawest example of pure serfdom I’ve seen in a long time. If the king moves away, how will the peasants eat?
Buffalo Pundit’s whole post on the Tea Party fail parade in NY-26 is worth a read.
