Never more has the choice for President of the United States been more clear for residents of Hoboken. During the last 8 years, while Hoboken's tax revenue grew substantially, Mayor Roberts and Hudson County Machine Democrats doubled the size of Hoboken's government using our hard-earned tax dollars, all under the guise of providing services to us that we hardly see. Instead of cutting our tax burden during Hoboken's economic boom, Hoboken has been saddled with contracts, salaries and pensions that are more burdensome than anywhere in the State or the US. As a result, we face a 47% property tax increase, increasing rents and a State controlled budget. While a select few will enjoy the security of gainful employment at taxpayer expense and otherwise benefit from such patronage, small businesses on Washington Street will continue to close and everyday Hobokenites will continue to struggle to make tax and rent payments while searching for jobs or working harder to maintain their jobs. The lesson is clear: large government and the stifling taxes that support it are the key ingredients to government excess and corruption, and benefit a select few at the expense of everyday people.
McCain has a proven record of fighting excesses at the Federal level, excesses that would additionally strain Hoboken. McCain recognizes that the supposed "rich" that will subsidize larger government, given our cost of living, are Hoboken's small business, entrepreneurs and professionals, and taxing them will mean harder times for Hoboken. Praised on a bipartisan basis for his hawkish defense of our hard-earned money, McCain favors cutting government waste and abusive size, and using the savings to cut capital gains to fuel investment in business, ideas and job growth - all very good for energizing Hoboken's small businesses and entrepreneurs and raising revenue for Hoboken. McCain appreciates the egregious mistake Herbert Hoover made during the Great Depression when taxes were raised and the nation was sent deeper into depression.
Given Hoboken's connection and proximity to New York, national security, particularly terrorism and an aggressive Venezuela and Russia, are key concerns for Hoboken. McCain, a Navy veteran and former POW, provides "formulations deep with content" that are "mature." McCain favors a stronger, smarter and more modern military and defense, recognizing that it would be naive to cut defense, slow the development of future combat systems, implement deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals and take defense missiles off of trigger alert. McCain recognizes that a pre-9/11 outlook (i.e., "terrorists are criminals") will invite a generated international crisis that will test the preparedness of the President to defend us. McCain's decades of experience and numerous forged international relationships will assure world leaders and aggressors that the US is up to the task of defending America, as affirmed by Sen. Clinton ("John McCain will bring to the White House his extensive national security credentials and a lifetime of experience") and Democratic VP nominee Sen. Biden ("I would be honored to run with John McCain ... the country would be better off").
For reform, prosperity and peace, we strongly urge Hoboken to vote for John McCain on November 4th.
