Phony Survey From Knuth

Kate Knuth has mailed a phony survey designed to justify raising taxes in the face of a large state budget surplus.

Item 3 is introduced with a long paragraph minimizing the surplus as possibly less than $200 million (a figure derived by an unknown math process but mentioning inflation as a factor). It then asks you -- since the surplus is so small -- in which of 7 areas would you like to raise taxes!

Knuth will almost certainly use this to justify attempting to -- or signing on to -- raising taxes.
Her favorite areas appear to be MinnesotaCare and the environment, judging from the number of times they are mentioned is this "survey."

If any readers have received this survey, please add you comments. I've mentioned only the most glaring imbalance.

Speaking of taxes...I have some good news of great joy!

A new political party is being offered to the tens of millions of Americans who feel that the Republican party and the DemocRAT party have NOT led them to achieve what they really want our government to do for them.

They want their borders secured and their immigration laws ENFORCED NOW! They want tax reform-and they want it ASAP! They want much more efficient, innovative and effective SMALLER government that gives them more bang for their hard-earned buck. They want Senate rules that do not allow an up or down vote for all executive appointment to the federal judiciary changed to allow a constitutional up or down vote. They want their second amendment right to keep and BEAR arms VIGILANTLY protected! They believe America’s best and brightest days are YET to come! They yearn for REAL change that PRODUCES real results that truly satisfies their good desires for their families, America’s future and their posterity. And, they want it all RIGHT NOW!

The new party is called the ‘New Republican Party’ and can be further studied at my website. This party is what we, and millions of others like us, have all been searching for…but it has never existed before…until NOW!

Denny -
Your site goes through a good summary on why the Republican Party has gotten itself into trouble. If the Republican Party leadership and office holders had done their job there would be no need or market for it.

The problem with new parties is that the start-up inertia gives the opposition the advantage for sometimes a long period of time. Hopefully the current Republicans will get their act together and essentially become what the New Republicans stand for.
