MN moonbat governor: The American Revolution was fought so we can tax the rich, or something

Congrats, Minnesota.  You’ve known for a decade that this guy was a few fries short of a Happy Meal, yet you made him your governor.  Geez, between him and Franken, you guys are bound and determined to supplant Californiastan as the nation’s nuttiest state, no?

Anywho, here’s what Gov. Mark Dayton(D-MN) observed on July 4th, in response to his state shutting down because he wants to spend tons more money than the state has:

It is significant that this shutdown will begin on the 4th of July weekend.  On that date, we celebrate our independence.  It also reminds us that there are causes and principles worth struggling for – worth even suffering temporary hardships to achieve.

Our American Revolution was very much about fair and just taxes, where the middle-class was over-taxed while the very rich went tax-free.  In the absence of fair taxes, the basic services people relied upon for their health and well-being were denied them.  (um, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? – CL)

Notes Ed:

Er … riiiiiiiight.  The American Revolution, led by wealthy landowners and businessmen like John Hancock, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the rest of the moneyed class revolted against the Crown for forced redistribution of wealth via government.  Damn the History Channel for not covering this aspect of the Revolution!

By the way, I’d love to hear an explanation from Dayton as to the “basic services” that were denied colonists by the British based on uncollected taxes from the rich.  As far as I know, the colonies didn’t have Medicare or Social Security either before or after the Revolution.  The only services supplied by the British were the troops that defended the colonies, which is one of the reasons the British began taxing them.

Washington: “Please, King George!  Take our money so the poor colonists can get free health care, or something.  If you don’t, we WILL revolt!  We have a RIGHT to…um…be subjected to confiscatory taxation.  Which is why we got so mad at the confiscatory taxation…that…we’re now…advocating.  Or something.”

  1. Hey! Neither MN nor any other state will supplant CA as the nation’s nuttiest state. We have that on lock, brother. 😛

  2. The reason California is so screwed up is that it is populated by former Minnesotans that couldn’t take the cold weather.

    And, don’t forget Jesse “The Body” Ventura, a professional rassler, who they elected the Governor a few years ago.

  3. Dayton, another blithernut. Right up there with Jerry “moonbat” Brown of Caliexico. I swear these guys need to stay on the teleprompter or something. Is he on drugs? Smoking moosegrass or something? And this is the governor of that state? Sorta like Ovimit, makes ya proud, don’t it ya minnesota voters. What a bunch of nitwits.
    WTF? Big time, CL.

  5. No, that’s wrong. Our American Revolution was very much about the establishment of a system of government whereby illegal aliens from Mexico could one day become President. Oh wait… You’re talking about Dayton, NOT Durbin. Never mind. Sorry, my bad…

  6. Spinny is right….we are the nuttiest state, but Minnesota is trying to catch up. At least they had some recent sanity with Tim Pawlenty as governor, and at least they have a Republican legislature…
