Massachusetts Constitutional Convention Recessed Until July  13th

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty” Thomas Jefferson

   The Constitutional shenanigans being promulgated by our collusive Executive and Legislative branches of government are so oppressive to the origins of Liberty that they would have John Adams turning over in his grave. These tormentors of freedom met briefly last Wednesday according to a plan to plot out a course to subvert our Constitutional rights, yet again, by proposing Three Tyrannical Amendments.Tyranny the FirstSenator Barry Finegold is leading the charge  to remove our Massachusetts Constitutional guarantee to a Governor’s Council because it is “archaic”. At the outset you should know that Barry is a loyal team-player in our state’s Democrat Machine. You should also know that he is a recipient of quid pro quos for his loyalty.

These tormentors of freedom met briefly last Wednesday according to a plan to plot out a course to subvert our Constitutional rights, yet again, by proposing Three Tyrannical Amendments.

Tyranny the FirstSenator Barry Finegold is leading the charge to remove our Massachusetts Constitutional guarantee to a Governor’s Council because it is “archaic”. At the outset you should know that Barry is a loyal team-player in our state’s Democrat Machine. You should also know that he is a recipient of quid pro quos for his loyalty. In the last election, Senator Finegold, is a lawyer and former State Representative, who violated campaign finance laws numerous times andsimply received a slap on his wrist for his offenses. Joining our Senator in the North Shore Gang to ostensibly save us tax dollars are understandably, Representative David Torrisi and disappointingly Senator Steven Baddour .

In an interview with Jeff Katz, my fearless Councilor Mary-Ellen Manning and Jeff talk about the real motivation for the devious SB12/HB1830 legislation( “..They, like they usually do,  put the vote off until sometime around July 4th , so that everyone will be eating hotdogs in the back yard while they change the  Constitution .”)  , and it isn’t because Senator Finegold (Who voted for a Sales Tax increase twice) wants to save you $500,000. As Jeff says, “Just follow the Money” and it leads you to the incontrovertible fact that the “donation spigot has been cut off” [I.e. Political contributions to Senators and Representatives to grease the skids to a judicial appointment, has dried up].

Tyranny the Second Union’s assault on democracy exposed. Rep. Denise Provost has proposed a Constitutional Amendment that would effectively eliminate the power of the people to redress executive and legislative malfeasance via our constitutionally bestowed Right to an initiative petition process. No clearer assault has ever been launched in Massachusetts against its Citizen’s Rights and Liberty.  To think that MA Legislators, sitting not very far from our Cradle of Liberty would even dare to consider such a desecration and wanton disregard for its Citizen’s Rights, is beyond comprehension.   

Tyranny the Third – The Third Tyranny is a proposal to change our current fixed Income tax rate to a graduated Income Tax rate. This outrage against all MA taxpayers would remove our state’s current 5.3 percent fixed tax rate and change it to a variable graduated Income tax. A tax that proponents will, at the outset, claim that most taxpayers would not see any significant tax increases. But as we all too well know, if given the power, our state government would not waste too much time in adjusting and manipulating the tax brackets to every citizen’s  disadvantage.  

So there you have it. We have a choice. We can put out heads in the sand or we can fight these plagues against Liberty and Justice. The choice is yours to make!
