  1. I appreciate the comments and the opportunity to make my own. I value all these things you have spoken of. I live in this state due to elderly parents in poor health. I am unemployed and seeking work. Even if I had solid work, I could not support greater taxes, of any kind. I believe in small government and private entrepreneurship. Instead of stimulating growth and supporting programs, I believe taxes create the need for more taxes. Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but teach him how to fish and feed his family for a lifetime.

    We can spend our budgets more wisely. I urge all to put aside politics, work together and use all your energies and efforts to put us back to work, reduce governmental burdens and cut costs. I want to see my children able to enjoy the same opportunities that I have had, no less than you, I am sure.

    Thank you.
