The silent majority is being SNOWED AND THE USE OF SCARE TACTICS by city, county and state politicians, and the funny thing is that people actually believe it. What happen in 2002-2003 with the same services? Didnt we have sufficient services then? WHY THE HUGE INCREASES SINCE? Once you give them the money you will never see it back. Silent majority needs to wake up and start with recalls immediately. Start with Geller, Pruitt and work your way from there. Somehow STILL we just dont have a strong enough voice. WHO WILL LEAD THIS? THAT PERSON WILL BE OUR NEXT GOVENOR. If you agree with this letter, PLEASE REPLY BY SAYING "I'M IN FOR THE RECALL!!!" DON'T GET SNOWED BY POLITICIANS AND THE MEDIA.

How about printing a chart like this one that shows tax collections over the past 4 or 5 years?

I bet it shows the politicians who are crying about having to cut services are actually bringing in a lot more money than they used to get.

Face it, tax revenue is way up in recent years. Unless the politicians are spending it foolishly, there should be more than enough for essential services.
