The Frat Boys would like to remind you that taxes are evil. What better way to show it than a rally on the 15th?
The movement to raise taxes in Minnesota is gathering strength. You can see and hear it building in the local media, and every advocacy group looking for a bigger piece of the pie, such as teachers unions and government employees, is echoing the call: "_______ (education, the environment, health care, etc.) in Minnesota is going to hell because of that tax-cutting theocrat Pawlenty and the radical Republicans refusal to raise taxes."
It's going to take a united front of concerned taxpaying citizens to thwart this effort. On Friday morning, come to the Capital and stand with those who are standing for you. Remember, the people with the orange signs are out there and they're more than happy for YOU to pay.
Speaking of the people with the Orange Signs, here's something to stick it to the "Taxes are Unpatriotic" crowd:
The Bush gang is cutting funding to healthcare, local law enforcement, afterschool programs, environmental protection, veterans benefits. But we know that we're all in this together -- and we all need to pay our fair share.
Donate part of your refund to a group that's promoting a more just society and demanding that citizens come before corporations: Citizens for Tax Justice, the leading organization lobbying for a more equitable tax system. And we mean truly fair, not the fake "flat tax" or other tricks Republicans have proposed to swindle regular Americans and give kick-backs to the top 1%.
Show you love America enough to actually try and pay for some of the things that make it the land of promise, instead of supporting the $36,000 birth tax.
