So how many House Republicans in Virginia want to help leftist New York City Mayor Bill Deblasio collect punitive taxes on New Yorkers? As it turns out, there’s a lot.
We’re going to make it a felony offense for someone to purchase a legal product in Virginia with the intent of transporting it to somewhere else, where it is also legal. Because New York wants to charge fourteen times higher taxes on that product than we charge here in Virginia, it is now Virginia’s responsibility to make sure that nobody takes it from Virginia to another state by making it a felony offense to do so where police will use force to arrest you for a suspected violation, if they feel it necessary.
Sic Semper Tyrannis, indeed. We’re protecting the financial incentives of tyranny rather than opposing it, but at least Delegate Jackson Miller has the courage and intellectual honesty to at least try to stop it. Too bad there aren’t more like him in the House of Delegates.
