You know something, New York gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan is right -the rent really is too damn high! Anyone who missed the debate on Monday night should know that renters of the nation have a supporter on their side, and he’s not afraid to talk about his rental views.
All jokes aside, the man has a point. While I’m not sure that his platform is broad enough to win the election, there’s one thing I know for sure, no one likes high rent – and people do need to eat.
If I did live in NY I just might vote for Mr. McMillan and his party, if for no other reason than to make a point for simplicity in messaging. While other candidates slip and slide from one position and topic to another, I know EXACTLY what my vote for the “Rent is Too Damn High” party will get me – a Governor fighting for fair rent prices.
I have no idea what else he brings to the table, but the more jaded I get about the political process the more I wonder if it really matters…
