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…
