Default Judge Wants Tax Increase To Defend Against (Possible) Civil War

Sage advice for how to deal with a possible second term for Obama, even if it does require raising taxes

In Lubbock County, Texas, there’s talk of a tax increase. The increase is to be 1.7 cents per $100 for the next fiscal year, boosting the rate to 34.6 cents from the current rate of 32.9458 cents....

This week, on Fox TV, Lubbock County Judge Tom Head explained why he favors an increase....

In an interview about the potential tax increases, Judge Tom Head explained how he feared that if President Obama were re-elected, he would cede the country to the UN, creating havoc:

He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking the worst case scenario. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy. Okay. Now what’s going to happen if we do that? If the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in UN troops. I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘You’re not coming in here’. And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said, ‘You gonna back me?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”

Civil war or not, the vote for the property tax increase for Lubbock, Texas, is scheduled for September 10.
