Letter to Guilford County Commissioners about Tax Increase Authority, by Jeremy Williams

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

"...In a news interview that aired on Fox8 on Friday January 21, 2011,
Commissioner Alston spoke of his support for a recommendation
to allow county commissioners
to decide on tax increases without voter consent.

In a time when a tax increase has appeared on the ballot 3 times
and 3 times the citizens of Guilford County have voted it down,
I would have thought the will of the people would have been clearly understood.

...This is not a Republican or Democrat issue it is a people issue.

...The people have spoken on this issue time and again
and now it seems the answer
the State Association of County Commissioners and Commissioner Alston
have come up with
is to simply bypass the people and take on that authority themselves.
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny,
when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
Thomas Jefferson
. you support taking away the citizens right to vote on tax increases
and granting that authority to the county commissioners?...

Two kinds of morality.

One which we preach but don’t practice,
the other which we practice but seldom preach.
