LAWMAKERS FORM PANEL TO PROMOTE TAX LIMITS

BY Mary Ellen Klas

State Reps. Connie Mack and Joe Negron take their promise to bring fresh thinking to the Florida Legislature seriously. They - and seven other conservative Republicans, all first- or second-term lawmakers - this week came up with a novel way to advance their less-government, anti-tax philosophy.

City taxes protested / Some in annexed areas haven t paid

BY Bettie Fennell

Wilmington's newly annexed residents haven't paid more than a third of the taxes they owe for the first nine months they were in the city. Only 63 percent of taxes owed by residents who were annexed Sept. 30, 2000, have been paid for the nine-month period that ended June 30, 2001, said New Hanover County Tax Administrator Bob Glasgow. He said about 100 of those taxpayers paid under protest by submitting letters that say they don't consent to Wilmington's taxing authority, now or in the future.

Daschle's War on Bush

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/9/2002 One of my New Year's resolutions was to give Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle a second chance after he scuttled the so-called economic stimulus package. But a week into the New Year I find myself having to break that resolution after hearing the Democratic leader rail against President George W. Bush. While Bush is fighting a war against terrorism around the world, Daschle is waging war against the president on the home front.

Economic Growth Vs. Debt Phobia

When Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill stated Sunday on Meet the Press that postponing the tax cut wouldn't help the economy, Tim Russert asked: "Will you continue to press for the implementation of the tax cut if it means deficits, or tapping into the Social Security trust fund?" Secretary O'Neill knew the right answer, but because debt-phobia has possessed many in the Republican Party, he could only whisper it in code: "The nicety of an accountant's surplus (is) not good economics."

A Response to John Ehinger's Column in The Huntsville Times

This is a response to John Ehinger's column in The Huntsville Times on Sunday, November 25, 2001, in which he addressed a recent straw poll by members of the Madison County Republican Men's Club. The vote was on the following two school property tax questions: 1. Are you for or against a 5-mill tax extension for 28 years? 2. Are you for or against a 3-mill tax increase for 30 years? The results were 87% against and 13% for the 5-mill extension and 88% against and 12% for the 3-mill increase.

Clinton Administration-era DOJ was Focused on a Liberal Agenda, Not Fighting Terrorism

Trusted with nothing less than the administration of Justice, the United States Attorney General is arguably the second most important officer in the nation's war on terrorism. With the threat of another domestic attack in the consciousness of the public, the importance of the Department of Justice (DoJ), and law enforcement generally, cannot be understated. Effective criminal prosecution and intelligence gathering are essential to protect and defend American citizens.

American Energy Needs Private Markets, Not Haphazard Government Intervention

The war on terrorism clearly demonstrates the vulnerabilities of our energy markets, given the large amounts of energy we import from political hotspots. Following the September attacks there has been a great deal of pressure to end our dependence on foreign oil. But the war has also demonstrated that the market for energy is global and it would be impossible to extricate the United States from the world's energy markets. Since the attacks, energy markets have continued to operate, and Americans have seen some of the lowest prices at the pump in recent times. This does not mean that nothing can be done to improve energy markets in the United States. Any steps taken, however, must acknowledge the worldwide market for energy as well as the fact that private markets, not government intervention, will provide the basis for reliable energy now and in the future.

Governments Create Calamity, Markets Get the Blame

© 2001 Copley News Service, 1/2/2002 When democratic governments create economic calamity, free markets get the blame. In today's world that means the International Monetary Fund, with U.S. backing, bails out lenders on the condition that creditor governments agree to poison their citizens with fiscal austerity, causing the people to rebel and turn to socialism. If you want to know where the next riots will break out, follow the IMF "candy man" around the world.

CSE Day at the Capitol in April!

In Florida, Volunteer Chapter Leaders (VCL) are helping to lead the way in the sunshine state. John Hallman (Boca Raton), Al Gutierrez (Titusville), and Frank Kinsley (Deland) are working hard within their communities to organize concerned citizens to fight against tax increases and to end lawsuit abuse. John, Al, and Frank have helped CSE to spread the message of lower taxes, less government, and more freedom across Florida by holding regular meetings for their chapters and are also helping to plan a CSE Day at the Capitol to lobby elected officials in Tallahassee on April 3-4!
