Illinois Tax Revolution Demonstrating in Chicago

Up to 100 people have been given permission for a noon demonstrate on October 12th at the J.R. Thompson Center, according to Bob Anderson of Illinois Tax Revolution.

The authorization from the Illinois Department of Central Management Services says there has to be one “marshal” for every twenty-five demonstrators.

  1. Great action, but without a PLAN with numbers and facts, it’s wasted time.

    Talk is cheap, you have to have a PLAN to present to the elected officials or it will be business as usual.

  2. Madigan laughs at these people as he continues on his insatiable quest to destroy Illinois.

    To him they are nothing more than a minor distraction, if that.

    There is only one proven and meaningful way to protest high taxes and the endemic corruption that infects Illinois, and that is to pack up and move out of this DEMOCRAT tax and spend hellhole.


    We did it for the Garbage companies trying to control our pockets, why not for Government !

    No difference!

    But people have to make the effort!

    instead of taking the easy way out!

  4. B4 the little liar decided to get out of Springfield he put together a plan to collect revenue from corporations – I think he called it closing tax loopholes.

    A nice way of saying tax increase without calling it a tax increase.

    Last night at the League of Women voters forum, both Democrats who showed up talked about how we need to collect more money from corporations – Jack’s plan.

    Then we heard from Mr. McConchie who made reference to property tax rates in St. Clair County and how they have skyrocketed since many businesses have moved out of the area.

    Do Democrats actually believe they can keep increasing the tax burden on corporations and businesses without them leaving the state?

    One property tax rate in St. Clair County totals 20.8147.

    The rate did not include any SSA.

    The highest I could find in McHenry County without an SSA was 13.823.


    We need the little liar to force more businesses out of McHenry County!

    BTW the Dem dolt running for Jack’s seat was pushing for an interchange south of Marengo to attract Bayer/Monsanto!


    I was surprised though that he is not sure about full legalization of marijuana.

  5. Will you be there, Robin, or as usual, do you just want to try to minimize other’s efforts to educate and mobilize voting taxpayers to hold elected official’s feet to the fire?

  6. First two words “Great action”.

    Minimize or suggest a better approach that would help solve the problem?

    Perhaps you missed my rant, a rant that has also been put in the NWH, DH, and given to many a elected?

    We need some government, how much will be debated till the end of the earth.

    As tax payers we must take away some of the power/decision making away from our elected officials, spending, setting tax rates, and borrowing.

    These three issues were problems that were never addressed properly when the country was formed and Constitution was written.

    They should have been, but the partisan nonsense started already way back then with over spending and borrowing to buy votes.

    Spending must always match actual revenue available at the time, ie what we are willing to give in the form of taxation.

    Borrowing should only be allowed with voter approval.

    Individual Income tax rates and Property tax rates should not be roller coasters of ever changing rates, which just leads to insecurity for the tax payer not knowing what is coming next from the elected to buy votes.

    That is called: As the wind blows nonsense.

    I would propose we force our elected by Petition, which is allowed in the constitution, to enact a Balanced Budget Amendment that has the income tax rate and/or property tax rate control tied to it.

    The Congress, State, and Local government agencies will only be allowed to adjust the income or property tax rates after a 2/3 approval vote within its legal boundary.

    Our choice, the citizens of the country, state, county, and local government, with a strong majority vote behind changes, not the Pacs controlling the over the top partisan as the wind blows hacks.

    Government agencies that use Property taxes should have no levy power or equalizer or ability to raise taxes because of inflation, whatever the home value, up or down, the rate we voted on determines what is paid in taxes.

    Not enough as most elected seem to keep saying, then come to us with your yearly or two year budget recommendations and let us vote 2/3 for any change from the year before.

    No more passing on our debt to future generations should be allowed.

    We borrow almost 40% for the Fed Gov now that must stop ASAP.

    We can budget a pay back of our various government debts, it’s time we correct our mistakes as lazy sleeping citizens and move on as a country with fiscally responsible government.

    I listening for other suggestions, got one my JH pal?

  7. SF, No

    I don’t attend whine session lead by Bob Anderson the man with no real complete numbers or complete facts or a plan.

    Same Bob that supported the last consolidation of townships effort, which didn’t have all the numbers and facts and would of raised some of our taxes.
