I find a few things incredible about it.
- While calling for innovation, his preferred politicians do their best to stymie any sort of innovation when it affects contributors, and;

Invented a new way for people to get from place to place without using the overpriced taxi services? Sweet! Please vote for us! Nevermind that we’ll just go shut it down after the election, saying that you’re not complying with some regulation we chose not to enforce before.
Found a new way to do business? Yeah, about that. Because you didn’t pay proper protection, I mean, get the proper paper certifications, you can’t work.
Oh, and by the way, you know those laws that say people have a right to work? Our friend Marvin is going to run a secret poll of your workers to see if they want union representation.
