So Bloomberg thinks it's ok to infringe on your rights.
Right it's called the Social Contract, it's the very basis of this nation. You give up some of your freedoms in return for protection from the government. Bloomberg is right on spot when he says this.
How can New Yorkers support this asshole?
*NYC-ers. NYC is different from the rest of the state, it's more liberal than the rest of the state mainly.
How come Democrats call themselves liberals when they really are a bunch of authoritarian dictators?
Bloomberg was elected 3 times as NYC mayor (he added an amendment extending the term limit to 3) as a Republican. So right off the bat he's not a Democrat, and he doesn't represent liberalism or Democrats. No I'd disagree, it's the right wingers that are authoritarian dictators, they expand prisons to punish more people, they want a larger military and they want to cut off support for millions of people who need it. They also want to restrict what a woman can do with her body, let employers know if a woman has purchased birth control pills and they want to dictate whether or not you can marry someone of the same sex.
Yet Democrats are dictators because they want to restrict guns (and Republicans forget that it says "WELL REGULATED militia" in the 2nd amendment).
