Special Feb. Election

For us Washingtonians who have special elections an get ballots with ONE initiative on it… here is my recommendation:

South Kitsap School District No. 402
Proposition No. 1 School Support Replacement Levy 

Vote NO

Not to sound cold hearted or sound like I don’t want to help out schools, but why throw more money into the government’s pot?

They’re already struggling to use the money they have…. do you really think this levy money is going to get to the schools?  Or do you think it’s going to disappear into the “Government funded programs money pot”?  You decide.  

Don’t just listen to me, think about it yourself….think about history and what has happened.  What was the purpose of the gas tax?  Improve our roads? I don’t know about you, but that tax has been around a year or so and I haven’t seen impressive improvements.  That’s just one example.

Where is my money going?  If you don’t know the answer to that question, then do you really want to be like, “Hey there government, here’s some more money for a good cause!”.  No!  If you don’t know where it’s going, you shouldn’t vote to give more.  Is it really going to be effective and really help schools?  If you don’t know, vote no.

Anyone done debate?  Apply what you learned.  Solvency? Inherency? Significance?  Engage your mind and see why you should vote yes or why you should vote no.  Back it up with reason and principal.

Thoughts anyone?

  1. I couldn’t agree more! Our tax dollars are constantly wasted. If our elected officials could budget our tax dollars and learn how to save money they would have more than enough to fund various projects.

    The government already has enough money they just need to learn how to sepend it wisely.
