    Without question, there is a role for government and its services are not free. However, I evaluate every budget proposal (spending request) to determine whether it's in the long-term fiscal interest of Hamilton County. More times then not, I defer to the private sector to resolve issues not directly tied to the county's business.

    It is not the responsibility of Government to take care of the people. It is an individual responsibility. The only necessity of taxes is to cover basic government functions and infrastructure.

    We have plenty of money if we just cut out special interests and waste. End our 16 year war and scale back our military! People at the bottom pay nothing in taxes and people at the top don't pay their share either! Everyone should chip in something!

    Taxation is theft. Before the 16th amendment it was unconstitutional to for the federal government to directly tax individuals. The states would figure out the best way to collect funds from the citizens of their state and then would allocate the funds, based on the state's population. The state's ability to withhold federal funding maintained the state's restriction of federal overreach.
