From an email by the chairman of the RICO GOP addressed to Dear Conservative Friends:
“I have attached a Power Point presentation about why RICO voters should approve the 1 cent sales tax for RICO school maintenance, which will be on the March ballot…As [promoters of the tax increase] approach other RICO organizations, they would like to be able to say the RICO Republicans support this 1 cent tax increase.”
I’ll bet they would! Conservatives For Higher Taxes! What could possibly go wrong? How about Conservatives For More Regulations? Conservatives For Open Borders? Conservatives For Abortion Clinics In Every Town? Why not just rename the RICO GOP to the RICO Democrat Auxiliary?
As for the merits of a sales tax increase for school “maintenance”, what happened to all that money RICO was supposed to spend on maintenance for the Courthouse? How’d that work out? Where did THAT money go—some Politburo slush fund for family, friends and cronies? That money has never been accounted for or anyone held responsible for the decay and decline of the Courthouse, even though Democrats controlled the building and the purse.
It seems to me that after decades of Democrat control of all levers of power the RICO GOP has finally succumbed to Stockholm Syndrome from which there is no return.
Sad, but probably inevitable.
