You don't have to know a lot about Republicans to know that they don't like raising taxes.
So there's got to be a serious reason why Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is advocating for a 1.7 cent hike in the local property tax rate. Sure, the district attorneys want to be paid as much as in other counties and the police force says they need more officers to improve response time and close cases, but keeping government agencies functional might not be enough of an argument in blood-red West Texas.
Luckily, Head has a much better reason why Lubbock County might need some extra money, and soon. In a television interview with Lubbock's Fox 34, Head said he's not just thinking about everyday expenditures, he's looking at contingencies in the big picture.
And by "big picture," I mean the civil war that's likely to break out in the United States if President Barack Obama is re-elected. To wit:
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. 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. 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.”
So that's good to know. (The Lubbock defense plan, I mean, not that Obama is planning on ceding sovereignty to the United Nations. We in the liberal media are fully aware and supportive of this plan.) Just a couple elected officials, planning an armed response in the event that the president is re-elected on the votes of the people. Nothing to see here, folks.
When Lubbock County Judge Tom Head says he needs a tiny raise in tax revenues, just know there's nothing less than an armed revolution at stake.
