Renters’ votes control property owners’ taxes | Letter
On Wednesday, March 12, Rick Kiser spelled out exactly why Thomas Jefferson and many other founders of our country insisted that you had to own property in order to qualify to vote.
I don’t know just how they managed to get that “reformed” away from us over the years, but it surely was made to address exactly what we property owners today feel about how our tax rates are mishandled by the “free for all” political bunch in power now.
Needless to say, the nonproperty owners far outnumber us at the polls and they easily control the vote to get what they want without contributing, so we had better just get used to it or move on.
