An open letter to Del Dick Black - tax fighter

Dear Delegate Black,

Thank you for your efforts in fighting against tax increases. I keep pinging on my two reps. Senator Williams and Delegate Hamilton with the truth and tell them to resist.

Our local news paper here, Daily Press, will not print my "letters to the editor" anymore. They stopped in 2002 when I very strongly opposed the sales tax referendum. I was very open about it. I spoke before City Councils, passed out over 6000 flyers and waved signs on street corners. They stack the information deck with disinformation.

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH" Patrick Henry. We both know he spoke of the never ending hunger of government for MORE taxes and to embroil its citizens into dependence on government that so taxes them.

Let it be known, I stand with Patrick Henry. I am strongly opposed and will expose and fight against all of those that continue to enslave me into dependence on government by taxing me to that point. Today, almost every American is at that point. My one and only cousin, with my name, was killed in a war fighting against just such a government. He was the son of an Army Col. I will NOT let his death be in vain. With tears down my face, I will not stand for this tyranny by taxation

Thank you Col. Black
