Parasites persist

The parasites came out of the woodwork today. Defend Michigan, a conglomerate of organizations of which you would be hard pressed to find many without their hand in taxpayer pockets, have filed challenges to the over 501,000 signatures submitted to the Secretary of States Office by SOS Michigan. They have hired Elections Attorney John Pirish to argue that there are problems with the language and the signatures. Defend Michigan's Spokesman Rodger Martin says they are "quite shocking".

A little less drama and more accuracy would be more to our liking. We are always suspect of someone opposed to something who is shocked by it's existence. What they are deadly afraid of is giving you the opportunity to vote. Heaven forbid that they and elected officials should be held accountable for the money they receive from the taxpayers or that elected officials should have to ask for money if they require more than allotted.

SOS Spokesperson Scott Tillman has it right when he says they don't want the people to vote or to put the people in charge. SOS does not cut the budget it simply limits future increases to the rate of inflation and population growth.

No they are hoping people are illiterate and are concentrating on how they can pay their own taxes, insurance and retirement plans. Hopefully not every taxpayer is duped by thier outrageous lies and deception. Let alone settle into not voting because of apathy. This November ballot has proven to be a challenging one. Michigan voters need to stand up and say enough is enough! No to the K-16 retirement, pension funding, No! to the legislator pending funding of their retirement plans, and their out of budget spending, hey we all have to be accountable for what we spend... Vote for the...SOS...Stop the Over Spending that will be on the ballot, look at the proposal carefully, don't be duped, understand that they want you to contribute to their retirement and health care costs...they don't contribute to my IRA or yours, do they? Do you want them to contribute to yours? (lets get a law passed so they have to also help us retire, and pay our health insurance) Hey we are in this, all, together, get with it and fund your own retirement and pensions, like the rest of us, get that??? 501,000 signatures for the SOS petition, doesn't that say the voters in Michigan have had enough, and we expect the government to budget their money, just like the rest of us. 128 million registered people in Michigan in 2002 and 501,000 people said in their written signatures to the state, we are tired and we expect a full accounting of all the money spent, that is collected from us, don't raise our taxes again, unless we say so! The people of Michigan have spoken, so be it, get to the polls in November and show them, you meant it when you signed the petition! You read it, you signed it, go for it, get out and vote. It's the only way we will stop this ever increasing burden on our own budgets, wake up legislators...government employees, teachers!, pay your own bills. hello! Margaret
