Do County Commissioner candidates Feathers and White agree with Mitt Romney's views that 47% of Americans are freeloaders who pay no taxes and think of themselves as "victims"?
A clue is found in a letter-to-the-editor from Ron Feathers in the August 25th edition of The TIMES, where this candidate states that "America is not a democracy" ... In other words, like Mitt Romney, he "doesn't worry" about that so-called 47% who allegedly pay NO income taxes and "depend upon government for food, housing, and stuff like that" ... While many pay more attention to other offices like members of Congress or state legistators, it should be remembered that IT IS THE JOB OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH CONSTITUENTS ON MATTERS RELATING TO ROADS, BRIDGES, INFRASTRUCTURE, PROPERTY ISSUES, ENVIRONMENT, SCHOOLS, AND (PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL) SPENDING OF STATE & FEDERAL FUNDS ... If Mr. Feathers (or Mr. White who also has exhibited elitist tendancies) doesn't believe that America is a DEMOCRACY, he most likely doesn't believe that it counts on a local level either!
