One this Michigan should do is put when we pay our taxes 6 months a part. Having to pay one chunk in September a few months before the holidays then in February 6 weeks after the holidays is "B.S."

I am not saying do away with all taxes because we need police, fire departments, and road crews but we have sales tax to cover the necessities. Don't even get me started on school taxes because the lottery was supposed to help with that and we see his higher jackpots, and more expensive tickets, while schools lose program after program and even teachers have to spend their own money on supplies for the kids.

Voting is more than just a president, senator, representative, governor, mayor, or any other public official, it is also proposals that can help us or screw us over. I am not telling you how to vote, but just to remind you to vote on these proposals one way or another, and the same for your public officials. You can vote these people and proposals in or out, but you can't complain if you don't do either. Use the power you have and vote.
