I Will Be Voting…

…By the grace of God I will be voting on Tuesday November 08, 2016.  I will not be voting for “the lesser of two evils”.

I will be voting for the candidate who will honor their pledge (at their inauguration) to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America”.  I will be voting for the candidate who will defend the Second Amendment, and the people’s right to defend themselves against a tyrannical government.  I will be voting for the candidate who defends the right of life to the unborn human child.  I will be voting for the candidate who cares more about the citizens of this great nation, than they do about global causes.  I will be voting for the candidate who will appoint Supreme Court Justices who will honor, defend, and protect the Constitution according to its original intent rather than what is culturally acceptable, or politically correct.

The reason to go vote.  Your vote will make a difference.

Yesterday’s Vote

Yesterday February 07, 2012, was a voting day in Missouri.  In Barry County we had to items on the agenda.  One was for Presidential candidates, choosing whether you wanted a Democrat ballot, or Republican ballot.  I am not particularly fond of either party right now; but I did choose the Republican ballot and voted for Rick Santorum.

Another thing on our ballot was for a 911 tax.  It recently failed.  That was back in November by a very slim margin.  I think the leaders of our 911 system have stuck it to the people of the area,  saying they needed the funding, when they have operated since that time without a hitch.  Many agencies need to learn to cut back on foolishness in spending.  That is true in Barry County too.  My vote on this initiative was “No!” for the tax.  However, it passed; and I understand by a 2 to 1 margin.  The majority has spoken; now we all will pay for it.  Now they will probably come back in a couple to five years and ask for more.

Let’s get real though.  In our present economy is it the right thing to do to increase taxes?  Never.  The idea would be to promote economic growth; and with that tax revenues will increase.  So much for stimulating the economy.  Remember Winston Churchill’s quote;

“I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.” — Winston Churchill

Enough said here along the banks of Flat Creek.
