Donald Chisholm: Let’s not become tax slaves

Donald Chisholm

Taxes, taxes great and small. Taxed by others caused our fall.

As voting residents of Summit County, we strongly oppose the added burden of more taxes on the property we regard as our primary residence. As Americans we are already, and soon to be, overwhelmed by the huge tax increases looming before us at all levels of government.

The concept of improving on the aesthetic appearance of our roadways in one of the world’s most beautiful places is a good idea. It should be carried on by the immediate and most impacted locals as volunteers with efforts of both their individual work and resources (think to adopt a highway). But not with more taxes. Every neighborhood should foster their own goals and implement them as they see fit.

Granting various levels of government more taxation authority is not the American way. As the world’s first and greatest free peoples we are still unique and exceptional. Let’s not become tax slaves at every whim of government – great or small.
