Phoenix, AZ—As a parting shot to the people of the State of Arizona, former Governor Janet Napolitano arranged to install scores of photo radar traps in a scheme to enrich campaign contributors and extort money from drivers. This despot then went off to join her pals in the Marxist Obama Regime.
This was not about reducing accidents. They have been declining every year. This is about funding a runaway government. This was political extortion, pure and simple.
Many people of Arizona hate the cameras as much as i do. There have been grass-roots efforts to shut them down. The politicians have not responded and have hired thugs to carry out the program. Throughout history only extreme violence seems to curb rogue governments.
No I’m not weeping for the dead man, former golf pro, Doug Georgianni. The 51-year-old had worked for the extortion camera outfit called RedFlex for about three months.
Truthfully I’d rather see a company official or politician responsible for the scheme in a casket instead of this foot soldier. Racketeering and extortion is a risky game to play. Extortion is a horrible business.
People engaged in the business of excessive taxation got a lot worse from our founding fathers who set the example. George Washington, Ben Franklin, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson and thousands of others were the terrorists of their day. We celebrate their victory over extortion and the new nation that resulted.
It’s very simple government must go on a diet or serious population control will begin in America.
To the politicians of Arizona and elsewhere, please take a not so subtle hint and get your hands out of the people’s pockets.
If you want to save hundreds of billions? Get rid of the illegal aliens and stop educating them and providing free medical care with our money. Perhaps it’s time to stop wasting untold billions on a failed and way too violent Drug War. Doing these two things alone would reduce crime and reduce the thoughts of taking American’s gun rights.
A great start would be to eliminate the extortion cameras at once.
