I voted yes as i think that

I voted yes as i think that this Bible verse fits here to a tee what Many of our local, state and national politicians do when they are supposed to be working for WE THE PEOPLE, from the President on down to local town rulers. Not all of them are like this, just Many i fear.

Isaiah 1:23
Your rulers are rebels, And companions of theives;
Everyone loves a bribe, And chases after rewards.
They do not defend the orphan.
Nor does the widow's plea come before them.

I think that this 30% Tax relief deal will pass and i will be shocked if it does not. Every day we see more and more Blatant Abuse of humans locally & world wide.
Whats so very sad is that WE THE PEOPLE are seeing it from the President himself and the trickle down affect has now become a raging river running through Us, and it's a very dirty corrupt river which seems to be ingulfing Alaska as well.
Who can WE Trust to deal with people justly and fairly? It's not any one political party any more as we see the two lines have become one as we look down the road to the future they have become one very bumpy road for US and OUR future appears to not be so bright for any one in this yet another "Strip Mining Project" of all OUR resources to appease Big Money, leaving Alaskans with nothing.
Only the law makers and the controlers of the money, oil and food globally will benefit, but that is also short term as James 5:1-6 shows that their treasure will become naught.
What a mess we are in as the human race with ALL of these chosen rulers as they all seem to have no fear of being punished for their actions and since they make the rules and regulate each other, they aren't afraid of anything.

What makes anyone think that

What makes anyone think that the legislature will do anything FOR the people of this state? They do for themselves and even if new ones are voted in the culture of corruption is so ramped that all will conform to the status quo within weeks and nothing again will be completed according to our plan.
