Taxpayers == Baby Seals?

Enlighten-New Jersey has posted one of the best pieces ever on the state's spending habits and methods of persuasion. As I read it, I kept having visions of New Jersey taxpayers as helpless little baby seals, being clubbed to death so that the politician-hunters could take their pelts and make them into nice fur coats for those "in need."
Here's the money quote:

It’s time for New Jersey taxpayers to take the club away. We have a right to limit or eliminate special interest government spending and to demand our money be spent wisely. We must stand together and let it be known that bankrupting the state and making taxpayers into villains is no longer an acceptable model for political success.

Go now and read Enlighten-New Jersey.
