- I know services and the number of people requesting those services aren’t going to go down anytime soon.
- Our roads aren't going to fix themselves, either this year or the next.
- Schools can't be expected to have bake sales to fund their operations.
- Our college freshmen just can’t spend ten years of wages to get a four-year degree.
I know these things, but I think Missoula Democrats know them just a little too well. After all, they think that taking your money is such a good idea that they’ll take all of it.
Oh, that’s not quite true, but we both know they’ll take so damn much that you can’t take that vacation anymore, or you can’t fly across the country to visit those grandkids twice a year, or you can’t even give to all those charities that you used to. The reason is because your property taxes have gone through the roof.
I couldn’t tell you what we use the money on here in Missoula. See, I think much of it heads out of town, to important people, rich people, people that can tell us how things should be here in this sleepy mountain town. Wonderful.
And that’s why I have such a problem with Missoula Democrats, specifically those in charge of the city right now. They’ve never seen a tax they didn’t like, they never question one that comes across their desk. They never work for Missoulians.
It’s a shame, it really is. I mean, we could talk about our artificially low wages, collusion between employers and industries to keep benefits down, and the growing crime problems we have because we spend money on things we want as opposed to things we need.
But what’s the point? Who wants to listen to that gibberish? No one important, that’s for sure. It’s a shame.
Real Missoula Democrats – when will I see you again?
