3. The message for lower tax rates needs to be nullified.

By educating the voters about the truth. It isn't about lowering the tax rates for everyone. It is intended primarily for the rich.

And that those taxes provides the services that the voters receive. Whether they are direct or indirect services. There are some that it is mostly the business that benefits with bigger bonuses with little benefit to the consumer and to very few consumers.

We could lower taxes but what are the consequences? Higher prices, less production when consumers don't buy, less innovation, fewer jobs, etc. Public safety becomes an issue on so many levels. There are other ways citizens can lower their taxes. Move to areas that have no or lower property taxes and local govt taxes. Move out to the boonies in never never land away from police and fire protection services. Away from good schools. Away from nearby businesses that receive tax abatements paid with your local taxes.
