It's very fishy that the same judge in Tallahassee ruled that Theresa Lapore's SCREWED UP Palm Beach County 2000 presidential election ballot which didn't even HAVE MY NAME lined up with the PROPER election vote box WASN'T RULED MISLEADING or CONFUSING but every single PROPERTY TAX CUT BALLLOT is ruled CONFUSING. Why is that...Hmmm.

We should not cut taxes. We need to CHANGE and raise them. If one house on your block has a tax rate of $10,000 then we need to CHANGE all the houses to $10,000. We need to get more money to give to other countries less fortunate than ours.

Why stop there. Let's sell all our best military hardware (F-22s, B-2s, satellites) to the Chinese and Russians for a 50% discount and then contract with them to protect us. What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that plan

You DON'T want a state income tax. Just get rid of the property tax and increase the state sales tax.

If you do, make sure you get rid of one BEFORE enacting the other. Once a state starts taxing something, that tax NEVER goes away.
