I PLAN TO VOTE "NO" ON THE 20 YR TOLL RENEWAL FOR CCC BRIDGE........ HERE'S WHY.....

The "government" never has "enough" of our money..... the more we give them...the more they waste and mismanage the taxpayers' $$$$$. The CCC tolls of the past were NOT spent as promised....WHY do you think this time will be any different?????

If you want our gov't to be fiscally responsible...I believe we must tighten the purse strings and FORCE public officials to SET PRIORITIES in spending and STOP wasting money on expenditures that are NOT the job of government.

WHY is government (fed, state, and local) using our taxpayer $$$ to give "free money" grants to people for "soft second mortgages" . Is THAT what we want gov't to do??????

Why is govt using our taxpayer $$$ to give TIF's (tax breaks) and grants to private companies like Target, Kohls, Central Grocery, Wal-Mart , private developers, NGO's etc etc etc. This is OUR tax money that should be used on police, fire, infrastructure, schools...... NOT to pick "winners and losers" in the private market!!! Is THAT what we want taxpayer $$$ spent on????

Why is gov't using our taxpayer $$ to give "free" grants for private home and business "energy audits", solar subsidies, "sustainable development" , etc etc........ ALL which REQUIRE an NGO "middleman" that takes a BIG administrative fee off the top of the $$$$. Is THAT good use of the money that cmes our of YOUR pocket????

Last year, Kenner Mayor Yenni tried to raise our property taxes 100%. We were told that without it...our fire and police service would suffer dramatic cuts. Over 80% of the voters said NO....... Since the failure of the tax increase, EVERY policeman and EVERY Kenner worker has received a PAY RAISE. The city bought TWO brand new fire trucks......etc etc etc.....AND we apparently have plenty of $$$ for the $30,000 approved by the City Council for CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!!!!! And, of course, we approved Kenner taxpayer $$$ for grants for "soft second mortgages".

Do NOT be sucked into this toll renewal........ make govt set the correct priorities. It isn't like they could never come back and ask for another toll in the future....... HOLD them accountable!!!
NO NEW TAXES!!!!

Thanks Terri! Will anyone express FULL Meaning/Opinion on how to VOTE on these - on the Ballot on this Meetup site?
For example: "Act 874-SB303, Right of each Citizen to keep and bear arms."
Sounds good, but so I hear it's a TRICK to give MORE Power to the Government NOT the person. So it's BEWARE to 'We the PEOPLE", you will actually LOSE more rights.

In 2010, the RW's Group had a meeting on this and I hate to say it was a TERRIBLE JOB on this. The guy did NOT know anything about the Bills, etc and kept saying so, it was a TOTAL WASTE of time and a nightmare.

Does GNOTP have anyone that can help decipher the 'CORRECT' meaning and what will happen if you say 'yes' or 'no' to each on the Ballot?

I know a lot of people would LOVE to know and get the word out since 80% were tricked last time in 2010 and ALL Parishes VOTED for MORE TAXES! How INSANE that was...

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON AMENDMENT #2- GUN RIGHTS !!!!

Here are our previous posts and info on SB 303 (Act 874) which is the basis for the Constitutional Amendment #2 that changes our state constitution relative to our GUN RIGHTS. Please read.
http://www.meetup.com...­

I have asked a PATRIOT attorney to look at this and see what he would recommend since someone obviously is NOT telling the truth about the effect of this proposed amendment.

We have started walking the Precincts and educating the people on such things as tax increases. Most responses are favorable. We are working on the Amendments. I had gotten something from NRA saying they think the Gun Rights Amendment is ok and we should vote on it, but at this point I disagree for obvious reasons. It gives governrment the right to change course if they so choose. Will post our findings later.

Thank you Terri and Carol. Not everyone can read a Bill, Amendments, etc and understand what it "ACTUALLY' is saying or see the 'TRICK WORDS" in it. Also, you have MOST people relying on those to 'TELL THEM'.
Attorneys etc., can analyze HOPEFULLY and let us know, so we can get the word out.
Hate to say it, in 2010, we Failed at this in Louisiana. The proof was voting for MORE TAXES and the Tea Party Candidates did NOT win.

I wish after we (La Tea Parties) dicide on 'how to Vote' on the Ballot to save our Freedoms, etc. , we could make a T.V. Commercial and show all of La Voters. But that takes money. I'm willing to Donate $1,000. (maybe more) toward T.V. Commercial's. Why NOT spend your money toward this, you will loose it anyway along with HIGH Electric Bills, Rights, Freedom, etc (list TOO Long too mention). Just an idea.
