Fox News mind control

Wednesday had a letter titled "Founding Fathers vs. Marxism" by Eben Henson. I was astonished at first, but then I was very happy at the fact that one of those Trump guys said it clearly and that the Green Valley News printed it. I am not the least bit offended by it ether. Read his words, slowly and carefully. This is what Fox News is programming their viewers to think of us Democrats. Prior to Trump, you never saw these words in a newspaper. But here they are now! And being spoken by someone who just loves his Social Security and Medicare. Pretty funny, huh?

Threats to democracy

I read with interest "Founding Fathers vs. Marxism” (July 21). The writer seems to conclude that threats to our democracy is from the left. However, it is the right wing extremists who are trying to curtail voting rights and distort freedom of information through media outlets, such as Fox News. Democracy depends on an educated and informed electorate. In addition, our Founding Fathers were students of the enlightenment and classical liberalism, which is also under attack by right wing extremists, not Marxist leftists. Hitler was able to gain control of the Reichstag democratic parliament by denouncing Jews, socialists and communists, saying they were enemies of the state. Today, we are hearing similar things from the right about so called liberals, leftists and politicians who are demagogues, not problem solvers. If we truly care about freedom and democracy, educate yourself and vote as if your life depends on it, because ultimately it does!

Tax giveaway

I'm glad an effort is underway to overturn the $2 billion in tax cuts approved by state lawmakers. One bill would replace Arizona's progressive income tax with a flatter tax. A second bill would largely relieve small-business owners from having to pay for the tax surcharge on the wealthy in the Invest in Education plan voters approved last year. Gov. Ducey says the average Arizonan would save $300 yearly. That is highly misleading. A legislative study says more than half of taxpayers would save no more than $17. Meanwhile, those earning $1 million to $5 million would save an average of $44,800. Ducey says the changes would juice Arizona's economy. But it's really an end-run around voters' approval of the education initiative, Prop 208, which could raise $940 million a year. The changes would significantly cut those revenues. Thankfully, Prop 208 organizers have crafted a petition drive to repeal the plan. If they can get 118,823 valid signatures by Sept. 28, the giveaway would be halted until voters can render a final verdict in 2022. Republicans' new tax regime is unwise. Responsible voters should plan to sign those petitions to save the state's progressive income tax and bolster education funds.
