Measure 2 In North Dakota

The polls say it will go down in flames...But not with my vote...


Since Californians shrank their property taxes more than three decades ago by passing Proposition 13, people around the nation have echoed their dismay over such levies, putting forth plans to even them, simplify them, cap them, slash them. In an election here on Tuesday, residents of North Dakota will consider a measure that reaches far beyond any of that — one that abolishes the property tax entirely.
North Dakota is awash in tax revenue, but even a state this small cannot seem to have enough.
If measure 2 fails (and it probably will) property taxes will be a problem in North Dakota for many years to come.
Much more here, and here.
