To Sen. Maralyn Chase,
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO...
Just in case you don't know what NO means, the New Heritage Dictionary defines no: Used to express refusal, denial, disbelief, emphasis, or disagreement: No, I'm not going. No, you're wrong. Not at all; not by any degree.
Learn it, memorize it and chant it next time anyone brings up a state income tax. We (the voters) don't want it, as has been proven in the past. But until you and your ilk do, I'm going to chant VOTE THE BATRASTARDS OUT!
The income tax is not a way for the state to balance the budget, it is a socialistic way for the state to spend more money, by raising the taxes and transfering the wealth, in other words, it is a way for the government to punish those that are succesful (and if yo doubt me, how many drug dealers do you know would declare their income for the tax?). We already have a consumption tax, the more toys you buy the more tax you spend. Those that cannot afford all the toys do not pay the tax. The sales tax is color, racially and socially blind. It doesn't ask where you make your money it only tells you that if you spend the money you are going to be taxed on what you buy...
OH, just in case I and others didn't make ourselves clear before.... NO to the income tax.
I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
