My requirement is which candidate won't try to raise taxes on us any more. If I can bring this home for a sec, I'm particularly outraged by OK Repubs at the moment. Just read that the OK COrporation Commission is going to pass a new $47 million tax on all of us who use either cell phones or land lines (All of us) in SECRET this Tuesday. These are all elected Republicans--what happened to the pledge not to raise taxes any more. They shouldn't be able to get away with this.

Does it really matter who's President if we can't even trust state and local elected officials????

James, can you provide more information about this? I have tried to find references to it online and came up empty.
