Looked at Huffines campaign website and I was struck that he wanted to do away with property taxes. Sounds good. Said he took income taxes off the table. How are funds going to be raised for schools and the county? No mention of that. A 25 percent sales tax perhaps? At this point, would have to stick with Abbott.
More and more I’m thinking about how candidates view the role of government in who I vote for. Not just broad more=bad/good, but things like whether or not the legislature is going to reign in somebody who’s sitting in a constitutionally weak governor’s seat.
Personally, I think politicians have gone overboard in how much of a role both politics and government should be involved in the lives and livelihood of people and business. At it’s core, the role of any .gov is to provide for common goods and services, not create provoking policies on shît just to stir people up or placate special interests.
