This week, at the Indianapolis intersection of 34th and Keystone, we witnessed an all too familiar event. A drunk driver, just released from jail upon the same charges, struck and killed two innocent people. When questioned over the repetition of behaviour which led to the tragedy, the besotted murderer replied that he was “Celebrating the fact that he was released from imprisonment” for an identical crime.
I can hear you asking, “What does this have to do with Property taxes”? My reply, is everything. Some of you have heard me say that allowing the current general assembly resolve the mess at hand, is “akin to hiring drunks to drive the beer trucks”.
If a drunk driver were to kill your child, wife, parent or friend--you would be outraged. You would be overwhelmed with grief, at the senseless taking of so valuable a life. But; when faced with a gang of power drunk, tax addicted rabble, many submit themselves to the adage of: “they might know better than me”.
The power-intoxicated poltergeists at the state house are running down innocent people daily. They are stealing the homes that truly innocent fellow human beings have worked years to both attain and, maintain. And the legislators are still given a pass, to cruelly run down even more blameless folk. Who’s only crime, was to own their own home.
The drunk that ruined two lives the other night, had the excuse that it was not his fault, because they pulled out in front of him. The “governor” and “legislature” that are destroying so many other lives, have made the same excuse, that "it is your fault", for pulling out in front of them…
It is time to teach the “government” of Indiana that their positions are a privilege which will be revoked--for the greater good.
