Nov. 2 we go to the polls to elect our leaders for the next four years. This is the time to lay friendship aside and elect public servants for a change. Now let’s take a look at what we have. We have a sheriff with seven deputies and a tax collector on the payroll. We have a clerk with six deputies on the payroll. I know they claim they pay this out of their fees, but who pays their fees? It’s the taxpayer and all excess fees go to the county treasury. We have an administration who gave us the biggest tax raise in the history of Spencer County. This administration hired another tax collector to collect this tax, and renovated an office for her. Is this the kind of government we want?
Now, let’s take a look at our economy. All these tax raises happened during a deep recession. Many people were losing their homes, their jobs and were hurting real bad.
One question: Have we lost our love for each other?
There are many excuses we can give for not waiting for a new administration if you the people come up with one, run it through your mind and see if your conscience tells you it is a good one.
We also have state and federal candidates to be elected on Nov. 2. I believe we have to ask ourselves a very important question. Do we want to send Democrats to Frankfort or Washington to help Governor Beshear or President Obama approve their agendas? I know I will make a lot of people mad with this article, and some might say I don’t think he should get involved in a thing like that. If you believe this, just think that I live in Spencer County. I am involved whether I like it or not.
Always remember Madalyn O’Hair had 13 percent of the American people behind her when she had a charge to take prayer out of the schools. Eighty-seven percent of us, including myself, did not want to get involved. I believe our country has been falling from God’s grace ever since. I ask you to pray about your decision on how to vote.
