California just can’t help itself! It’s looking for new ways to help get rid of their $2 Trillion debt, by tax and spend!
Isn’t it time, whether Local, State or Federal, we hold our leaders accountable? Maybe if lawmakers had to pay the treasury/taxpayer back all the money they have wasted, allowed to be abused, or never hold those to task, for the fraud, that goes on in our governments, Americans wouldn’t have to worry about our elected officials trying to tax us into submission!
Sacramento, the State Capital of California, wants to tax soda, tires, guns, water, pain pills, lawyers and car batteries!
Watch out, this could come to a State you are living in! This is what some call the Nanny State Syndrom, whereby lawmakers decide for parents and others what we should, shouldn’t, be allowed to have. By taxing certain items, that lawmakers deem ‘not healthy’, ‘no good for the environment’, we are letting a duly elected government, be our moral compass, de facto parents, judge and jury! Now that is truly scary!
“Our Constitution established specific powers of the federal government, powers that are limited and enumerated. The founders believed that the government exists to perform only those services that the people cannot provide for themselves, such as the national defense. Local and state government powers were also to be limited and enumerated with the people self-governing in all other areas.”
If Americans sit back and let their governments bully them into thinking we need more taxes to survive, then we deserve what comes our way, just like the State of California! We forget that lawmakers do work for us. Their power, is what we hand them, when we give them the keys to their government offices.
Our jobs are not done after elections! We are meant to hold those who lie, cheat and steal from us accountable and we should treat them just like we do any criminal who breaks our laws! What’s the difference?
“The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power; not the increase of it.”
Woodrow Wilson, September, 1912
