We need to have one more LARGE major protest at the statehouse. Only trouble is the public has been lulled to sleep by the minetrap of the word "cap your taxes" til next time or phase in that cap. You can trust us.

Dave Bond of STOPIndiana.com had a great idea for a final state house protest.

On the last day of the session, we all go down in janitor and maid uniforms outfitted with mops, buckets and brooms to CLEAN HOUSE come November 2008!

No one is safe.

That is what is going to happen too. The taxpayers are going to get to clean house!

Notice that activists are starting to run for office?

ACTIVISTS RUNNING FOR OFFICE:
Abu Henderson to replace Rep. Bill Crawford

Ken Morgan to replace Senator Teresa Lubbers

Sean Shepard for Julia Carson's Congress seat.

Andy Horning for Governor

Beware of those who don't interact with the activists. We follow the taxpayers' plight hour by hour and have a clue. We won't steer you wrong.

Here is Indiana's current tax cut plan:

Reduce the increase in property taxes and shift the entire tax burden to sales taxes.

Increase the local income tax

Reduce no government spending

Result: Net Increase in your Taxes

The bipartisan government-reform panel led by Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard and former Gov. Joe Kernan recommend the elimination of 1,155 units of government and 5,833 fewer elected officials statewide saving $400 million each year.

We've got to quit governing like this!

Message from former Governor Joe Kernan:

Study shows that Kernan-Shepard recommendations would result in between $200 and $400 million in savings each year

Agreed -- we need another Black Sunday. Photos and footage from that still appear in the paper and on the newscasts as background on tax legislation stories. In all fairness, the weather has been a big part of the problem, but somehow we MUST organize (and PROMOTE!) another BIG rally before the end of the session. Daytime would be better when it's so cold, but many of our activists still have to work for a living. What does anyone think about a second Black Sunday?
