Fortunately, it was a good map and after a little searching I found the 2010 Mississippi Races - and Joel Gill!
After reading his site and stances, he has my vote! Greg Harper has been a sore disappointment in most cases.
I wrote Mr. Gill the following :
I was looking at your site, because I would love to vote against Greg Harper - or any Republican. I am a Reform party guy, really, but am taking an "anything but a Republican" stance for now.
I like most of your stances and agree with enough for you to get my vote. However;
"The vast majority of wealth in our country is in the hands of the middle class."
- is just plain wrong. The top 20% of the wealthiest control 90% of the entire wealth of the United States. Right now, the Middle Class have an ever shrinking share of the wealth.
On Illegal Immigration, I am torn. Illegals are here now. Tracking them down and getting them out would be a rough and expensive job. I would like to see Amnesty for those (and their immediate family) who come forward, speak English and have a good job. I believe that it would ease the task of finding other illegals that are a burden on the system.
On Taxes, I agree with a total re-do on the system. One item that bothers me currently is the prefferential treatment of "UnEarned Income" over "Earned Income" - this unfairly shifts the burden to people who work for their money. (I did notice you would favor taxing salary and interest income.) Not sure about cutting off the no-tax at minimum wage - a guy gets a 10 cent raise and it is more than removed by new taxes. Should be a wage window that is tax-free and a pahse up to the full percentage, I think. Until all Income is taxed equally, there will be no tax justice. I am also torn about Property Taxes and Inheritence Taxes.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Congress representing me!
