What does this have to do with NJ , unless this is the Morristown Tea Party proposing this un-American thing.

I'm spreading information ...a reader's interpretation of that info depends on what color glasses they're wearing

and is it NJ specific ?

not in a strict sense, but since we recently elected a right-wing Governor, I thought it'd be relevant to know where his cohorts are going.

I think only people who OWN and pay taxes on their property should be allowed to vote on issues that can or will affect the taxes. You see the apartment transients do not give a ratts arse about what people who own property pay and should have no say in the matter.

While the source is obviously very liberal the information is not incorrect. There is a segment of the tea party radio show where their president does say that only property owners should have the vote.

You can get it at the teapartynation website or here
Tea Party Nation weekly radio show 11/16/2010 - Tea Party Nation | Internet Radio | Blog Talk Radio (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/tea-party-nation/2010/11/17/tea-party-nation-weekly-radio-show - broken link)

Its from Novemeber 17th.

Well that is just silly. Should people who do not have children have the right to say anything about the school budget? Should only poor people get a say at what welfare laws are? Should only Native americans get a say about immigration laws?

Since anything to do with taxes can effect any member of a community everyone gets a say.

Yes because we are supporting others kids with no benefit to use. No say? then we don't pay that portion of the tax bill. really simple concept.

listen to it (did you or did you just read the "recaps" by the websites that listed under "radical right wing agenda"). He said it is a good idea back then. Never did he say it should be law now. I agree he might approve of it now, but he never said it. Just another person convinced by the "facts" they want to believe

Clearly this topic doesn't belong in the NJ forum. Why not keep this to the political forum?
