Jay Sanchez on Corruption, Cronyism and Political Duopoly in Queens
Join us at our June 13 Meeting: Saturday, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm, at the Irish Cottage Pub in Forest Hills, 72nd Ave (corner of Austin St, 2-3 blocks from the Continental Ave E/F train station, LIRR, and Q60 bus) to hear Jay Sanchez, legal reform advocate and Libertarian candidate for Congress (CD5) discuss current massive corruption issues in our borough that motivated him to run for Rep. Meeks’ seat. His profile can be found at https://ballotpedia.org/Jay_Sanchez#Campaign_themes.
As Sanchez has put it, “The increasing power of monopolies (or duopolies and oligopolies) is killing competition in this country. The immense market power of huge companies allows them to eliminate potential competitors and to squeeze their workers, customers, and suppliers (smaller companies). It enables them to pay for the influence in government that allows them to, again, increase their market power so that they can even more easily eliminate potential competitors and squeeze their workers, customers, and suppliers. It is a vicious cycle that, if not stopped, will turn us all into something like the Serfs of medieval times.”
