Crushing land transfer tax defeat!

Exactly how naive would you have to be to say, "Oh, please raise my taxes, because I firmly believe your vague promise that this will somehow help me?" As an aside, the gentleman who appeared on the news last night was a breath of fresh air and obviously the kind of "interlopin' Yankee infidel" we should want to move here. He was smart enough to realize that he had left the crushing, punitive taxes of the Northeast (with absolutely no corresponding improvement in the quality of life), and had no desire to see the same nightmare duplicated here. As a Carpetbagger myself (that's a Yankee who came here almost thirty-five years ago, found paradise, and never had a desire to change the place) I'd bet that the small minority who voted for the land transfer tax were recently arrived New Yorkers and Jerseyites who are still hypnotized into believing that they should vote for every nutjob tax and whacko bond referendum on the ballot. Far too many forget that we moved here to get away from that nightmare. Remember folks, you can manage your money far wiser than the government can manage YOUR money. The last thing we need is more government at any level.
