Taxes are theft!
Public officials who don’t understand this need to be kicked out of office. Your wallet is not their playground!
Cities created a social compact with citizens to do what citizens can’t do on their own. Think streets, sewer, fire protection, and police. Citizens volunteered part of their wealth for a common good.
Citizens have never agreed to hand money over to government for social experiments, Quality of Life, or for funding ideology.
Any taxation above essential services should be criminal!
When most citizens don’t vote in local elections – the elected get to run wild at your expense. Normal allowed Koos to bury them in debt. Bloomington allowed Renner and cronies to massively increase the cost of government.
The below should make you
MORE than angry!
You work hard to earn the money you have,
then government squanders it on pet projects.
It’s much worse however when
those pet projects redistribute it to
LEFT WING MEDIA and call it
All the yellow highlighted organizations would not exist without tax dollars. You are being robbed to fund far left leaning media where the general manager is also a member of the Normal Town Council. Note: WGLT are calling these “underwriters” and claiming they “contributed significantly”. WGLT isn’t allowed to sell advertising – they are part of National Public Radio and are therefore prohibited!
What do they get for significant contributions?
Redistribution of your wealth!
Some of these had the audacity to raise your taxes!
Planning to do some “community organizing” to get out the vote?
If not, why?
Black Lives Matter and the Soccer people are! Why not the people forced to pay the bills?
