You want to elect everyone in government? Fine. Lets have elections - on everyone! Lets ensure that everything becomes political. And by the way,
enjoy the substantial increase in taxes you will get when we must now hold costly elections. Will you blame that on the elected officials now?
You have no evidence or reason why they should be elected. Elections are held for offices which enact laws that impact the entire population and are
generalist in nature. MTA Board Members are SPECIALISTS in nature, and by electing them you would only ensure your fares go up and that people who are
actually qualified would not run. Political science, its a great subject on this sort of stuff. Read a book on it.
MTA board members are appointed by the governor and CONFIRMED BY THE LEGISLATURE. Oh wait, aren't those elected representatives? Indeed they are. You
have direct influence on who gets appointed by the type of person you elect. Elect someone that has views like yours on transit policy (though you
won't find any).
Stop it with your lies. First you tell us they are paid WHEN THEY ARE PAID nothing, and now you claim they get kickbacks? WHAT? Making up lies again
are we, in a desperate attempt to prove your point? How typical. How do we know YOUR not getting kickbacks from the Communist Part of the United
States? I have no proof, but after all we live in a capitalist society and SO YOU MUST BE GETTING KICKBACKS! PROVE YOUR NOT!
This is not a debate, this is you with your preconceptions of the world refusing to acknowledge reality. You base an entire argument upon a lie, and
it never occurs to you to check the facts. That is because you do not care about the facts, you care about pushing your victim mentality to the front.
It is quite obvious now that you feel the overwhelming need to "be right." Part of that, for you seems to be getting the last word. Go ahead, go for
it! I want you to reply and get that last word in, make yourself feel you are right. This entire thread has shown anyone who cares to read what is
really going on: you refuse to acknowledge reality, and instead prefer to stick to insults and a victim mentality. You lie to make up points, and when
your lies are exposed you claim ignorance.
I no longer have to respond to you, because your house of cards has fallen. It's proof enough for everyone to see. Enjoy getting the last word and
satisfying that overwhelming urge you have to be right. Ignored.
