Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, in a fiery address on Monday, declared New York independent from the federal government.
Invoking the Revolutionary War, the third-term Democratic governor said the state must stand up to what he describes as a federal assault on the states values, while outlining his 20-point agenda for the coming legislative session.
Ladies and gentlemen, this nation is in crisis. The social fabric is fraying and it is nearing its breaking point, he said. We must stand up to this tyranny once again. Not with muskets the way our founders did. But with our voices and our votes and with the power and example of our action here in New York.
His agenda, which includes marijuana legalization, gun control measures, and environmental protections, is New Yorks Declaration of Independence, Cuomo said.
We disconnect from the nationalism, and the racism, and the chaos, and the xenophobia, and the misogyny, and the discrimination, and the dissembling of this Washington administration.
As our forefathers rebelled against England resenting the kings values and abuse, let us announce New Yorks rebellion from the current federal policies, he said.

And he has the temerity to invoke the Founding Fathers and the Revolutionary War.
Guy's a psychopath, and I remain delighted I fled from that horrific state back in the year 2000.
He is looking to get arrested.
Andrew Cuomo urged pro life people to leave the state. Their resistance to the slaughter of pre born human life disturbed him greatly. That is all you need to know about this man.
I have one word for Cuomo, then: Upstatehood!
Cuomo has give Upstate the go-ahead to liberate itself from Albany’s tryanny!
Feel good politics is what I assume this is, just a bit of show to keep the Leftist anger down so people will devote their energies to anti-Trump activities that only result in the election of Democrats to office.
Violent activities would cause a backlash.
what an a$$hole.
Fine, send them a bill for all federal disbursements to NY.
Because if he had his way, hed outlaw muskets
He’d love to get arrested. That would make him an heroic leader of the Reeeeeeeeeeeeesistance.
He’ll go broke with the state-run global warming position, if he doesn’t run afoul of making policy with other nations by doing so. That is why the pro-Climate Accord states are acting in concert, to give each other cover. The anti-2ndA posturing will be allowed under State’s Rights, to a point. I predict POTUS will sign a Federal legalization of pot bill, since it’s already a defacto done deal and the states against it can still impose their own laws under 10A.
Cuomo is running for President. Donald will drink his milkshake.
"Everybody go out and engage in 'Ballot Harvesting'"
Imagine what it is in 2018!
I just wanted to point out that his thrust is, it is tyranny for the Federal Government to oppose the tyranny he wishes to impose.
They took a poll. Everyone is against the govt.
But I think he read the tea leaves wrong on the issues.
Yes, Andrew, there is tyranny emanating from the White House that is trying to force freedom on us.
That’s cool cuomo. Now please separate Upstate NY from the five boroughs. We don’t need nor like you.
Cuomo. Another corrupt elitist pr*ck.
Hey Huomo, what State houses FaHarv, Lauer, and your Favorite Butt Boi Schneiderman?
Although I completely disagree with him on nearly every issue he raises, I actually encourage this kind of rhetoric, in which state politicians advocate independence from the Federal Government.
This is the way the union was supposed to operate.
