Don’t Forget to Vote Against Your Local Taxes!

Here we go again.

Did you know that it is election season?  No, not for the 2016 presidential race.  It is tax levy season, again.  You didn’t know?

Neither do the residents of my town.  On May 5, a special election is being held to vote on one thing and one thing only: yet another tax levy for our failing school system.

I am already getting beautiful, glossy postcards sent to me in the mail begging me to vote to throw more good money after bad into our failing school system.  The funny thing is, the school system is using my money to send out those glossy cards.

Why is it that we have to be forced to pay for liberal things?  But, things that aren’t liberal, well, donating to them is, after tax and purely voluntary.

Let me explain – can you imagine what would happen if federal tax dollars were given to churches?  OMG – the world would end.

But, my tax dollars pay for:

-the United Nations

-Planned Parenthood, the #1 provider of abortions in the country

-all sorts of goofy, ridiculous tests and “research”

-climate change scientists

-a failing socialist think tank (i.e. the public school system)

My money is taken from me, by force, and given to these causes whether I like it or not.  There is nothing that I can do about it, I am defenseless in the face of this tyranny.

Progressive liberals have to force people to pay for those things.  Then, we give the leftovers, out of what is left, to the church and conservative, Christian organizations or any other organizations.

So, check your local paper.  You may not live in my town, but, you never know, more taxes may be heading your way.
