Michael is working every day to put control of the state back into the hands of the people of New York, rather than in the hands of corrupt and self-serving politicians. It is the right of every New Yorker to choose how to raise their children, to educate them and help them grow and become confident, self-assured adults that can make a difference in our fast-paced, technical world.

    Michael has worked to directly reduce the tax burden of his neighbors, and is a force in the real estate field, so he has first-hand experience with how the New York State government makes it very challenging and unappealing to do business here in the Empire State.  Michael is part of the Conservative Society for Action, and a member of the Long Island Oathkeepers.

    In 2012, Michael successfully got on the ballot for Congress in Long Island’s third congressional district. He debated Congressman Steve Israel and Candidate Steve Labate at the League of Women Voters and did extremely well. Michael was pushing hard to be a force in the rest of the debate series (six in all), when the island was devastated by hurricane Sandy. The remaining debates were all cancelled.

    As a Libertarian, Michael is also in favor of keeping government, local and otherwise, out of personal relationships, stopping the government from spying on its citizens with drones and other electronic surveillance, and removal of long prison terms for non-violent, no victim offenses.  Michael is leading the fight to remove red light cameras from our communities by ballot referendum.  Michael is also a staunch advocate of our right to free speech, and the right to free expression, as long as such action does not interfere with the rights of others.

    One of the issues that is key in Michael’s decision to run for Governor is the large number of petition signatures he was required to obtain to get on the ballot for Congress, and the loss of valuable time talking to citizens and promoting his campaign due to the onerous requirements. He is also committed to returning choice to the healthcare field, and preventing New Yorkers from being told what medical plans they must buy via the so-called Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). He also has a young daughter, and has already been working towards stopping and repealing the horrific implementation of the Common Core federal disaster from destroying the education of our youth.

    Having seen the ugly side of politics on many occasions, Michael McDermott believes in principle over all else, including political parties. He wants to get the government off of our backs and out of our bedrooms and wallets. Michael has a reputation of being a “uniter”, bringing together many groups that support him and his campaign to reduce government overreach, and empower once again, the citizens of our great state.

    Michael has gathered a high-powered team to completely revamp the most important offices in New York State government. Bring New York back from the brink of bankruptcy and reverse the flow of residents and businesses from New York State!

Although I stand alone amongst the other candidates for Governor I am in this to represent the people, NOT the entrenched career politicians. Cuomo is ahead of Astorino by 26 points in the recent Maris poll. A vote for either of them is wasted. But your vote is your own, so vote for whom you think will do the best job for you. If Cuomo wins (very likely) we need to have the Libertarian Party to fight him for the next four years. If Astorino wins (not likely) we need to have the Libertarian Party to make sure he keeps his promises, unlike all the other republicans in the Senate or the Assembly. If you truly want to repeal the SAFE ACT, Vote Libertarian this One Time! It may take us four years but we will get it done! I stand alone in Column B. I'm asking 50,000 of you to keep me company tomorrow!

In New York State our "TAXES ARE TOO DAMN HIGH!" so our Libertarian Candidate for Governor, Michael McDermott, has unveiled a bold and very doable tax proposal.

Of course the two major parties will scoff, because they have allowed the state government to grow so large but, together, we can give EVERY NEW YORK TAXPAYER A $4,000 raise. It's YOUR Money, YOU earned it, and YOU SHOULD KEEP IT!

Contact us and we will send you details of the plan.

With 23 days until the election on November 4th we need your DONATIONS and SUPPORT to get the message to every New Yorker! -
