I don’t intend for this Blog to get political, but I must say that I become angry every time that politicians talk about solving our budget crisis by raising taxes. Depending on your source, we already pay a little over $1 trillion a year in taxes to the federal government, but they are spending about $3.7 trillion a year. In other words, even if tax revenue was doubled, we would still be well over $1 trillion in the hole, per year. This is truly frightening, and I hope that there are politicians who are ready to stand up and confront the real cause of our massive debt, namely out of control spending.
This has been a roller coaster of a Supreme Court race. It just goes to show that it is always risky to declare a winner before the last vote is counted, especially in a race this tight and hotly contested. While it looks like Justice Prosser will retain his seat, stay tuned for further developments.
Don’t forget to get out and vote today. Whatever your political leaning might be, it is important to exercise your right to vote. In addition to local elections, there is a seat on the state Supreme Court up for grabs. Take the time away from work and participate in the process.
