Part 4 – Self-Inflicted Eviction – Who’s Minding The Boards?

Is Anyone actually watching or being held accountable for your Levy Tax Dollars.

Therefore every time you vote in favor of a Levy without demanding accountability, you are contributing to not only your – but others Self-Inflicted Eviction.

The purpose of this post is that simple deeper dive into the ‘Unaffordability” of Levies. It has taken a long time to bring this information to you since the details of it had to be more fully investigated and then written in more of a ‘White Paper’ format. Consider how long the list of the taxing authorities are as noted in “Part 3 of Self-imposed Eviction: Confusion – Good Intentions By Deception and Legislation”. The challenge for this writer has been to drill down on the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Administrative Code and the various bureaucratic entities rules, grants, strategies and policies.

Gulp! Where’s the Tylenol for the headache?

It is abundantly clear that many of the “unelected” Boards and bureaucrats of some nineteen taxing Subdivisions in Ohio have “ZERO Accountability to the Citizens of the Counties. Why? Because no one is paying attention to them. Continue reading

Part 3 of Self-inflicted Eviction: Good Intentions

Confusion – Good Intentions By Deception and Legislation

Here is Part 3 of Self-inflicted Eviction, which goes beyond the emotional voting aspects of increasing ones property taxes. The good intentions of those that see or perceive needs in society often get legislation passed that creates a taxing authority (sub-division). The majority of these Sub-divisions are most often unfunded – except by self-imposed taxation. This mean that the county may be required to have a certain taxing sub-division but that does not mean that the Citizens have to fund it.

Levies: The Hot Issue

The issue of Levies is HOT across the nation. We have received tax relief at the Federal level and yet the local level is making home ownership almost impossible. Most Citizens do not know they are virtually evicting themselves and those that are renters don’t care what happens to property owners. The Confusion is that most Citizens have no clear understanding of the various Boards, better know as taxing sub-divions, regarding responsibilities and accountability. This is most true about having any idea of how and why these entities exist legislatively or what their real budgetary needs are.

Part 4 of this series will get into a lot more detail about the sub-divisions. Just to be clear, the deception is in the way the confusion of the laws are written and how levies are presented by the sub-divisions.  The good intentioned members of taxing authorities will always play on the emotions of the Citizenry. Most importantly they are culpable in taxing home owners into eviction to maintain their bureaucracy.

It’s About Our Posterity

As much as the national events are important – it is even more critical that we look at what is happening locally.  I speak to the most important elected position there is: The Precinct Committee Person.  As I get to the discussion of what SACPS is, our students, our Posterity need to understand that local governance is the key to maintaining our Liberties and that the Precinct person is the first elected official to represent the community.

As promised from last week I talk about the more complete introduction of the ‘Samuel Adams Center for Political Science.’  The web site http://sacps.org is in its gestation stages.  In the references I’ll give you a bit more but in a quick statement: It is about the youth! Developing leaders through mentorship in Foundational Truths as extrapolated from the writings and life of the ‘Father of the American Revolution.’  Is it interesting that our enemies absolutely understood the historical value of Samuel Adams? Not in a way that he and his Patriot Peers will develop leadership, entrepreneurship and policy concept studies for middle school through grad-school in First Principles of Foundational Political Science. Remember that Saul Alinskey adds Sam Adams into the list of “the great world leaders of change of the past centuries”. With that, hear why SACPS has come to fruition and how you can either participate or contribute. Continue reading
