64% of people think we should raise taxes on someone else. I’m shocked.
Got a friend that claims to be conservative. But he’ll vote for increased taxes for others. This is Oregon, so the loons are the majority. It apparently hasn’t dawned on him that he keeps voting for candidates that lose, but he usually ends up on the majority side of ballot initiatives.
