The Truth About Taxes: A talk hosted by River Valley Action
The talk was attended by nearly 100 individuals. Three myths were tackled that night-- that taxes are a major detriment to economic growth, that regulation kills jobs, and that voter fraud is rampant. I spoke on the topic of taxes. My Powerpoint presentation is on my web page.
A great summary of the meeting is provided by Dick Bernard.
The crowd was terrific except for a few hecklers who came not to listen but to disrupt the meeting. The huffed and puffed and shouted and in general acted like goons. One big guy kept badgering me and just simply refused to let me talk. He proved an old adage--but to keep you mouth shut and have people think you are stupid than open your mouth and prove it.
The MN League of Women Voters produced a lethal video on why we do not need voter ID. It is a must for all to watch.
