URGENT: Washington State Senators Propose State Income Tax! Residents, Please Oppose At This Link...

An appeal to my DailyPaul brothers and sisters in liberty who live in Washington State...

About the only thing we have left resembling liberty anymore is that we are one of a handful of states without an immoral state income tax. BUT...

Two WA State senators have put forth a bill to institute a state income tax.

Here are details and below is a link to oppose it.
-------------------------------
NAME OF PROPOSED NEW WASHINGTON STATE INCOME TAX BILL:
SB 5166 - 2013-14
-------------------------------
Sponsors: Senators Chase, Kline

Scheduled for public hearing Feb 14th, 2013 in the Senate Committee on Ways & Means at 3:30 PM.

Bill Details:
SB 5166 - DIGEST
Establishes a state income tax.
Reduces the state sales tax.
Eliminates the state property tax.
Takes effect if the proposed amendment to Article VII of
the state Constitution, authorizing income taxes, is approved

Comment:
If you impose a state income tax in Washington, I will move away to a state which does NOT have an income tax. And I won't be the only one. Your tax base will diminish and suffer.

Thanks...

...for the bump.

It's important for WA State liberty-minded residents to jump on this now.

Because SOME of these bills can be passed in the legislature with a 2/3 majority.

And here in WA we sure as hell have that.

So who the hell downvoted my post to stop an income tax in WA???

Surely not a Ron Paul supporter.

What - is the Huffington Post taking over here?

A few of us Ron Paul remnants went down to Olympia yesterday...

...and raised holy hell with one of the Washington State Senators (Kline-Democrat) who sponsored this income tax bill.

We walked in his office just as he was getting there and spent about a half hour making him explain hiself.

He told us we were wasting our time coming to Olympia to oppose this bill because it likely would never pass anyway.

So I asked him WHY he was wasting time and money sponsoring it in the first place.

We verbally spanked him until I actually started to feel a little sorry for him. But not for too long!

But at least a couple of us are on record opposing this bill and Tamra even got up there and slammed the Federal Reserve System (which was filmed an is on TVW).

I gave her kudos for that.

She is the 37th District Chairwoman (King County GOP) who supported Ron Paul and really knows her stuff.

She's hanging on to her position by a thread, and I really hope she keeps it next election.

She is about the only source of hope in the King County Republican Party.

I'm planning on going to the capitol tomorrow

And raise a little hell about this income tax bill.

Oh no here they come the

Extortionists and theives. Hide your goods.

It will never pass!

Washingtonians have been fighting the socialist crowd in King County for decades. Even the working classes there are starting to wake up.

Washingtonians will have to approve a state income tax at the ballot box and I don’t think that will ever happen.

I think their retaliatory liquor tax against the people this past election, has back-fired on them.

I can also assure you, that Tim Eyman and his group will be out in force, putting a stop to it. And he has a lot of clout with the working classes.

He’s like EF Hutton, when he speaks the people listen!

We HOPE this never passes but...

...we have to stay on top of it.

NOW.

Here We Go Again

In my life time this measure has come up about 10 times. King and Pierce County rule this state, :( very sad, and hopefully they will turn it down again. A state income tax will make us number 1 for the highest taxed state.

Where I live,King County,

property taxes are realy high.How would the state make more
money by getting rid of the property tax and just having an
income tax?

Re property extortion and theft called tax

If this extorted theft called property tax is imposed. The truth is all property is usurped by the state.

The cime families that run the state government impose what ever amount of their false debt slave curency as a debt leveyed against your property, If you do not pay they will take your property, asume ownership from you.

Now if you rent the very same property that you own, if you do not pay the rent the OWNER kicks you out.

So the state imposing extorted theft called property tax is in reality stealing everyones land and making them pay rental.

I say if they need state funding it needs to be voluntary. If no one gives a penny, starve the basturds out of existance, they were not needed.

If they were funded by donations I bet they would take a new view about what authority who has over who.

Message to governemnt, the last one out please turn off the light.

RE: Property taxes. How much of your property tax bill is from

...the State?

Remember - they are just getting rid of the STATE portion of property taxes. You can bet there will still be county and city property taxes - which are probably the largest portion anyway.

Just a dirty little TRICK they hope you don't notice if you support this stupid bill.

AND...

You can also bet that once they get their income tax, they'll re-implement the state portion of the property tax.

Then we'll be fully fenced in like the pigs you trick by building one section of fence at a time.

Well that explains it

Hope the voters don't fall for this.
Thanks Pawn.I'll spread the word.

And thanks to you too Wolf.

I'm telling everyone I can.

Crap!

Crap! I was going to move up there because there was no state income tax!

They tried this 2 years ago...

...and ALL 49 counties in WA State said NO.

But now they have a carrot on a stick.

These bastards just keep on trying (like they did with the Federal Reserve Act from 1910 until 1913 when they got it passed).

These 2 state senators are the utmost pieces of CRAP.

Appealing to my DailyPaul brothers and sister in liberty...

...who live in Washington State.

We're the only state named after a U.S. president but are we worthy of the name anymore?

Especially the name of the best president in history.

Are we worthy?

Im in WA

and no.. we most certainly aren't worthy :/
