Letter: Absolutely 'No' on Measure 101
This month we will be asked to vote on Measure 101. Just another tax, in a long line of progressive taxes, that is slowly but surely fulfilling Goal No. 2 of communist manifesto.
The state has had two consecutive record-breaking years for tax collecting, but as always under the current leadership (cough), they always want more. They weren't happy with the vehicle tax, bicycle tax, etc.
I don't know about you, but it is not my responsibility or that of the state to pay for medical for illegal invaders. Oregon is the most corrupt state in the Union and there seems to be no accountability for anything, including where money goes, so why give them more to get laundered and feed the machine that steals our money and attacks our rights every session?
If we do not repeal this tax, the governor is planning on spending the upcoming short session on more illegal gun control. She wants to put it on steroids, because as you know, the appetite for control only grows with success. They want to try and repeal the pre-emption statute that would seriously affect concealed handgun licensing (CHL) and confuses gun laws in this state even more than they are. They want magazine bans, to get rid of flash suppressors, and on and on. Send a message, again, that we will no longer take these oppressive taxes laying down.
I urge you to vote no on measure 101.
