Obviously the citizens of 1776 had had enough. Their government ruled through absolute tyranny. Taxation was completely overbearing, justice absent and the people oppressed. Who knows by what courage a leadership council arose to defy their masters and by what loyalty a people followed. It is a rare and precious thing.
Since the beginning of this year over 1,000 Hicksville residents have called for an EMS response to their home or business. The Hicksville Fire Department (HFD) has responded to 616 of these calls, 122 (20 percent) of which were necessitated because “No Nassau County ambulance was available.”

If you drive a car, you will pay more to get or renew your license and register the vehicle. If you own a boat, an ATV or other vehicle, it will cost you more not only to register them, but to transport them as well, as fees on trailers will go up.
The motor vehicle fee hikes will hit Long Islanders the hardest because cars are not a luxury, they are an everyday necessity. People depend on them to get to work, go to school, shop and get around their communities. I voted against every one of these tax and fee increases. New Yorkers clearly have had enough.”
