I’m concerned about the fact that most state legislators in both political parties lean more to the left on state regulations, anti-family, police state, public education aberrant social and related policies than most voters of both parties. They more often work more directly for the political/regulator class and tend to favor tax hikes. Now, in my state, the politicians and their few, favored constituents are trying to take control of tax hikes from citizens of the state (state constitution), so that those legislators, local government interests and their socialist business cronies can hike taxes against the wishes of the general population.
Same on the VAT (”FAIR”) tax issue. It’s a national sales tax for big, over-regulating government that works to keep potential domestic competition down for globals.
Have fun. Enjoy the slide. Or cut spending and dump the regulations against new, small manufacturing businesses.
It is precisely the same greed for power that drives their attachment to regulations, and taxes that also makes them usesfull in opposing Washington’s grasp.
Your right many of them might look past that greed and choose to divest themselves of power so that their friends in Washington can do more. But your talking about virtue among thieves, it is a far less common thing than greed.
This of course puts those of us with virtue in a far better position to game our defense with the aid of those who simply want the control for themselves.
I would not claim that this is by any means a prefect situation and solution Famlyop, but i would insist that it is far superior than that which we now have.
