America’s civil war: Butler county election results

The election results for Butler County were mixed; some good, some bad. The biggest issue for myself was the Lakota Levy; which unfortunately narrowly passed by less than 1% of the vote. It took only 240 people to tip the scales in favor of outright extortion. The good news is that Fairfield defeated the bond, even if it was by a paltry 40 votes. Some other levies were passed in the county, while West Chester finally kicked out its most progressive trustee and replaced her with Tea Party backed Mark Welch.

The issues in Butler County are mirrored throughout the US, while there were many small victories across the country, there were losses also. Virginia went completely blue, while New Jersey got to pick between a progressive democrat who looks like Nancy Pelosi, and a progressive republican who looks like Jabba the Hut. Great choices there New Jersey, its no wonder all your businesses are moving out here!.

For those like myself, who are bitterly disappointed in having to fork out an extra $30+ a month for the idiotic new tax levy, I will say this: there is a silver lining. Like I said, West Chester will now be able to rein in its bills, lower its taxes, and put dash-cams in police cruisers in order to hold the cops to a new level of accountability. While Liberty and West Chester Townships narrowly missed defeating a tax levy, Fairfield was able to narrowly defeat one. We truly are in a civil war. The country is deeply divided along both sides. But we are winning. Remember that the American War of Independence was not won through battles, but perseverance. Did we really think we could cure 100 years of progressivism in one election cycle? No, this is going to take quite some time, but we are wearing away at the machine, and groups such as the Tea Party are having a massive effect on local elections. The West Chester Tea Party backed Mark Welch all the way, and today he kicks out a progressive who has been holding the township back for years.

It is disappointing that seniors and those on fixed incomes will have to struggle to find new ways to foot this idiotic tax bill, it is disappointing that teenagers will have less part time work available because local business owners have to lay off workers to pay for this useless tax levy. But all this goes to show that while we are wearing away at the machine, it is time to fight back instead of just defending ourselves all the time. This was the 4th levy attempt, and it only passed by 240 votes! It took only a small band of misguided fools to kick this stupid levy through. So it is time for us to kick the ball back down the field. It’s time to kick the unions where it hurts; we need to push for the bill for a right to work state. we need to push for tax reduction bills at the local level. We must stand up and fight!

The road is long ahead, but we have the founders and their principles to light the way. It’s going to take a lot more effort on the ground level, and many more of us will have to get our hands dirty and get the word out. Our future is out there, we can change the country for the better, no matter how many useless idiots stand in the way, the founding fathers stood up against similar odds, so let no progressive stand in your way. While there will be more battles that we’ll lose, we will win this war!

Vote NO lakota

Another year, another levy attempt. When will these union types get it? We don’t want another unnecessary tax increase!

Did you know that over half your property taxes already go to our bloated school system? The Lakota school district already boasts some of the nicest facilities on the planet, and yet they still demand more money!

And what for? Security? Technology? The schools already have all the technology they need. If they want more, why not just have a fundraiser instead of wasting money on levy campaigns and extorting the residents of Liberty and West Chester Townships?

As for the security. Even if we were stupid enough to post armed guards in the schools, which would make the schools feel more like prisons, why not just let some of the teachers carry concealed weapons? The general public is allowed to carry, so why not the teachers? If we want to avoid a Sandy Hook incident, why not allow the teachers to be the deterrents? The kids wouldn’t even know they had guns. A dozen silently armed teachers is a far better deterrent and far cheaper way to protect school children than a single silly security guard.

Back to the cost; we spend thousands of dollars every year per household for these schools, a number far too great to maintain. We already have many businesses moving into the area, but this number will slow if we don’t rein in these rouge union supported levy addicts.

Just take a look at Fairfeild; another levy attempt! After the last one only passed a year ago! Look at Forest Fair Mall (or whatever they call it this month!) You want to know why businesses are leaving? The taxes are too high! Year after year these levies are passed and the businesses have had too much. Even Bass Pro, the anchor store, is moving to West Chester in 2015, but do you think they’ll stay there for long if taxes continue to rise in the region? My bet is they’ll move even further away if we don’t rein in taxes in our region.

And what about the parents? We always hear that these levies are about the kids, which is a lie, but what about the heads of households? What happens when their mortgages go up and they struggle to make payments? What if a West Chester business leaves the community, or lays off workers to meet the demands of these tax raises? What happens when John Doe losses his job in West Chester, and can’t afford his mortgage in Liberty Township? His employer lays him off due to high taxes, and now he has no job, and higher taxes to pay on his own home. Have none of these levy addicts thought of this?

But its only $16 extra a month they scream! What an absolute lie. It’ll be $16 a month extra for a small fraction of the community, while the majority of home owners will be stuck with hundreds of dollars extra a year. All the while their pay checks are being diminished and they are struggling to hold on to their jobs, while the teachers get a cozy pay increase. Extortion indeed! What about the businesses? Most factories and distribution centers in the area are worth millions of dollars, this tax increase will cost them thousands of dollars extra a month, on top of already bloated taxes. That’s someones job!

It’s a fat lot of good bringing in extra unneeded money to the school district ‘for the kids’ if they no longer have a place to live because mommy or daddy got laid off.

Use your head, learn the facts, go to www.nolakotalevy.com and see for yourself that this latest tax levy is completely unnecessary, and remember to vote NO on Tuesday.
