Voting booth is way
to make changes
Time to start thinking about elections. I hope everyone by now realizes the undeniable truth ó Republicans and Libertarians are the only political parties opposing higher taxes, imminent domain abuses, illegal immigration and forced annexation. The reasons to vote for a particular party are many, but the concern here is forced annexations.
The Democratic Party is not the party of our fathers. Every year the taxes imposed upon the working citizen become more oppressive while entitlements become more irresponsibly liberal. More taxation by any means is a Democratic Party staple, and Democrats have consistently and solidly supported, assisted and perpetuated forced annexation in North Carolina.
The current Democratic leadership has ignored the overwhelming majority of the citizens in North Carolina in favor of pleasing the League of Municipalities, a taxpayer-subsidized lobbying group that only represents the municipalities and has a transparent Marxist agenda of liberal income redistribution through the oppressive forced taxation of working citizens.
Lexington wastes over $12,580 of taxpayer money in dues to the league every year, and the current “representative” has represented only the cities while ignoring the pleas of the common citizens.
Republicans and Democrats have made North Carolina one of the highest tax states, but voting Democrat defies logic if North Carolinians want to end the tyranny of forced annexations. Party loyalty replacing common sense and Christian values is self-defeating if one claims either.
The principle of our nation is voting, and if one values partial-birth abortion, illegal immigration and gay marriage more than our Constitional rights, personal property control and fair taxation, then continue to vote Democrat.
If you would like to end the gangrenous spread of forced annexations and tax abuse, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and learn who we can vote for to change things for the better.
