In his first run for governor, John Lynch did not take the "Pledge". His friends in the press covered for him and talked about him as the anti income tax governor.
He was also supposedly NOT in favor of homosexual marriage.
Well that was not true either as we all now know. Lynch has always had an agenda and it is a liberal Democrat, tax and spend, homosexual marriage, Massachusetts style, big government agenda.
Governor "Not Benson" has finally come clean.
So if you have any illusions about his Constitutional Amendment not being a stalking horse for an income tax - rest assured - that is exactly what it is.
After three years this Governor finally had to do something and it was just what any other liberal tax and spend Democrat would do.
But then, most of us have known this for a long time.
And since homosexual marriage isn't a national issue as much as a State issue, what higher office do you think he is hankering for?
"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we have been bamboozeled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozel. The Bamboozel then captures you. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back."
