“YOU SHOULDN’T BRAG ABOUT IT IF YOU HAD TO PAY FOR IT”
By FITSNEWS || Last week’s 2014 South Carolina gubernatorial debate was a forgettable affair … part of an increasingly forgettable race, if you ask us.
Incumbent “Republican” Nikki Haley – who is comfortably leading in the polls – avoided any major missteps. Meanwhile her two main challengers – self-styled “independent Republican” Tom Ervin and Democratic nominee Vincent Sheheen – failed to land any decisive blows.
The whole thing was “ho-hum,” in our opinion. Well … with one exception: Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Steve French.
This website has been supportive of French’s candidacy because he’s on board with much of what we believe in: Individual income tax relief, universal parental choice and specific cuts to government spending – most notably doing away with taxpayer-subsidized “economic development” efforts.
During the debate French was specifically asked about these so-called economic “incentives,” which have created a political headache for Haley (and have failed to improve the state’s employment situation).
Here’s what he said …
Job creation is kind of like sex. You shouldn’t brag about it if you have to pay for it.
This guy won the debate in more ways than one, people.
