Most Politicians Have No Problem Losing Their Balance !!!!
.. in fact .. you can count on it !! This the first in series of six (6) sets of articles about some of the forces that drive your county tax bill up.. After considerable research & investigative efforts, these articles were written to help more voters like you learn to quickly see thru KleptoCrat Schemes & Propaganda typically used to raise money by creating Special Tax Districts (STDs) & selling Municipal Bonds (STD MuniBonds) that drive your county taxes up. Every year more of your rising taxes are being used to finance the growth of local & statewide tyranny and to finance the growth of Communist cells These articles summarize our conclusions, after taking a hard look at STD MuniBond use across Texas. The use of these financial/political tools exploded in the late ‘80’s when state legislators greatly expanded their original definition & scope. That explosion continues today. It is accompanied by rapidly expanding, stealth corruption, legal graft & social justice government largess. Major portions of most STD MuniBonds do a good job of creating value in their district. However, it is our opinion that many include scams & schemes that are nothing more than legalized theft. To make matters worse, they play a major role in financing the growth of government bureaucracies & your annual county tax bill.
Special Tax Districts (STDs) …
were created in 1904 by Texas politicians to finance legitimate county operations & capital projects. STD’s were authorized to sell municipal bonds on your behalf & then tax you to pay for their decisions. Many have been good, others have been tainted by schemes to fill campaign coffers, repay political contributors and to make establishment politician richer & more powerful.

Eternal Vigilance Is The Price Of Liberty !!
“Never Let A Catastrophe Go To Waste” …
is a stock phrase used by those in the Political Class. MuniBonds are one of the slickest way for deceitful politicians & bureaucrats (KleptoCrats) to capitalize on catastrophes (real & imagined). Many come from careers that include law, banking, insurance, staffing services (peddling flesh) &/or financial services. This makes todays politicians highly skilled salesmen for intangibles. Thus, talking uninformed, naive Deplorable Tax Payers into accepting the responsibility for paying back yet another debt and increasing the county tax bill just a little a breeze. All they have to do is to quietly dip their beaks into infrastructure & purchasing procedures & the corresponding STD MuniBond. No one will ever know !! Meanwhile, Deplorables like you & me are left with 10 to 40 years worth of payments on layers of debts (MuniBonds). When funded, each STD MuniBond becomes an annuity that makes regular deposits into the Hidden Trust Accounts of limited liability partnerships (LLPs) locked away in the drawers of lawyers & bankers who specialize in providing trust services. Full disclosure of the hidden equity owners of the major capital projects you drive past each and every day is hidden from your prying eyes and It’s All Perfectly Legal.
Human Nature Never Takes A Holiday.
Political Celebrities Selling Themselves As Your Best & Most Reliable Fiduciaries Are Often Poor Businessmen & The Weakest Of Men, When It Comes To Real Character.
Our Job Is To Watch Them Constantly.
Transparency Is A Joke ..
in many counties. Private meetings take place before each secession. Rehearsed commissioners court sessions & role playing produce well oiled Kangaroo Court Productions. It is here the script & choreography for the upcoming commissioners court session is finalized. During these sessions, Uninformed Deplorables & the local media take pictures &/or sit in the Peanut Gallery as thespians unfold one masterful performance after another. Those with bit parts, extras & key grips line the walls wishing someone would ask them a question too .. or at least acknowledge their existance.
Accounting System ..
Are An Even Bigger Joke. Intentionally convoluted and designed for bureaucrats, these systems make sure Deplorables are never able to match revenues & expenses, or track purchases or sales. No real performance measures are imposed on any operating department and increases in fees & taxes are often based on what the commissioner & judge think they can get away with. This is just what the doctor ordered for KleptoCrats. It is virtually impossible for the public to track any transaction from beginning to end. Things will continue this way unless you demand real checks & balances & the adaptation of standard business accounting systems that provide real transparency.
Our Democratic Republic Only Function Properly When We Are A Well Informed, Engaged & Virtuous Public
Both political parties fully embrace it, use it and love it !! Corruption is a key driver that causes your County Taxes to rise higher each and every year. This series of articles is about the deceptive use of Special Tax Districts (STD) & Municipal Bonds (MuniBonds). The underlying realities we must all face & fight are man’s inherent weaknesses and the lack of accountability & transparency in county government. Complain about Washington DC & Austin all you want; the depth of the swamp are found in our counties. This is were county power brokers & ever faithful party fanatics deliver the votes that keep KleptoCrats in office. We believe that the last thing county power brokers & KleptoCrats want is for you to be able to monitor their committee or floor votes and the flow of Your Tax Dollars thru the hands of the bureaucrats they control. With that in mind, it is easy to see by counties operate with accounting systems designed for bureaucrats and not you.
Corruption is the most effective tool secret cells of Marxists in our midsts use to take control of Your Tax Dollars. Your Tax Dollars are then used to fund the growth of government & Communism.
There are no real checks & balances in Texas’ county governments. In an age filled with out of control political corruption, on all levels of government, dishonest politicians & king pin bureaucrats (KleptoCrats) are asking Tax Payers to trust them more & more. Too many of the corresponding STD MuniBond Proposals merely reflect Political Arrogance As Well As Corruption. Such proposals are prescriptions for long term grand theft that should be torn up immediately.
STDs Are Ghost MicroGovernments …
The ability for bureaucracies & King Pin Bureaucrats to tax you is accelerating. STDs were created in 1904 by Texas politicians and their legal gun slingers. They provide a way to raise capital to finance legitimate county projects. They also provide comfortable places for KleptoCrats to get rich behind closed doors & on private, out of state, fishing trips. STD were given the right to sell municipal bonds on behalf of county tax payers. Many STDs have been good for Texans. However, an increasing number are nothing more than deceitful schemes to fill campaign coffers, repay political contributors for not in kind contributions and to make establishment politician richer & more powerful.
Whether They Are Good or Bad,
STDs Drive Your County Tax Bill Higher
Each & Every Year.
STDs may be created by government bureaucracies or private investment groups; and they can tax private property owners in all or any part of your county. To KleptoCrats, a STD’s approval by commissioners court & the Texas Bond Review Board are license to strip money from your pocket. SInce the late 1980’s, the number of Texas STD’s have exploded. Along with that explosion the number of questions regarding the use of STD MuniBonds for KleptoCrat purposes and to fund the growth of government bureaucracies as well as Social Justice programs have increase.
Major Problems Arise ..
when Politicians, King Pin Bureaucrats & Special Interest form secret societies called Iron Triangles. The interests of Iron Triangle members secret societies is always given higher priority than yours.
Iron Triangle members know exactly what they are doing & how much they are going to get out of the deal. Meanwhile, scores of political party loyalists work on the fringes of these secret societies. Fully intoxicated by the fumes & flagellation of their favorite local political celebrities, these loyal party people are totally blind to the corruption they are facilitating. They are the Useful Idiots on which Corruption & Communism always depend.

They have absolutely no idea why their county tax bills keep going up. Once a MuniBond proposal is Sold to voters, it quietly & completely disappears from view. Most were initiated 2 to 10 election cycles earlier. Unable to look ahead, no more than one election cycle, voters are ignorant of the financial & legal games that can be & are being played on them.

Your County Is Where The Big Money Is …
Willie Sutton, The Original Slick Willie ..
He robbed >100 banks between 1920 & 1960. A real pro Willie said ….
“I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life!”
A news paper reporter asked Willie Sutton why he robbed banks. He responded .. “Cause That’s Where The Money Is !!” Well, if you were looking for large sums of poorly protected flows, one of the places to look would be at huge streams of cash flowing thru major counties. These counties are The State of Texas’ primary agents .. & tax collectors. To us, it is totally unbelievable that Texas counties continue to operate the same way they did when Judge Roy Bean ran Precinct 6 in Pecos County, …. without any real checks & balances and nothing that could be called transparency. This makes you, & your county, Easy Pickings for skilled KleptoCrats & the swarms of professional campaign contributors, service providers & vendors that are always at their elbows.

Yes !! .. They Want More Of Your Money !!!! …
Ask any businessman, considering an investment in your county, if he would like for you & other tax payers to cover major portions of the dollars needed to complete their project & pay off his corporation’s debts. Ask any bureaucrat if they would like more revenue running through their bureaucracies, more power & a bigger salary. Both will say Absolutely Yes !! How many politicians do you know that would decline a potential county vendor’s offer to provide grocery bags filled with cash, campaign contributions, block walkers & other not in kind contributions for their next campaigns ?? Under financial and/or political pressure, how many of your local fiduciaries (politicians) would say No !! It’s time for us to put on our big boy pants, remove the scales from our eyes and face the human weaknesses & corruption that plague politics in the USA, on all levels. For many, this will take lots of courage. They must toss the identity/security blankets given to them by the political party to whom they have pledged everything. If you are serious about defending your Rights & Liberty, you must Do Your Own Homework. That requires an ongoing diligent search to identify & link a credible trail of relevant facts that lead to the truth. Clinging to security blankets, prayer rugs, talking heads & party pundits will guarantee that Corruption will continue to consume your county, your state & the USA from within. The corruption most of us are ignoring finances layered networks of Communist Bureaucracies. These stealth networks live inside county purchase orders & vendor invoices for engineering, site preparation & construction as well as the cost to prepare and issue STD MuniBonds as well as inside many county’s operating budgets & capital projects programs. Meanwhile, Taxes Called Fees are hidden inside services provided by bureaucracies working to TAKE title to the resources & private property that used to be yours. With each quiet incremental move KleptoCrats make, Corruptions & Communism incrementally rob you of your Rights & your Liberty. Wasn’t this why Americans fought King George III during the Revolutionary War.
Balancing Corruption vs Virtue …
requires real character. Most of those we choose to represent our interests are not able to balance themselves for very long, …. if at all. As the dollar signs get bigger & bigger, many humans will fall from grace, .. sooner or later. It’s just a matter of time before most. Temptations associated with STD Municipal Bonds become much more than KleptoCrats can handle. Their weaknesses pave the way for Marxists in your county. They quietly dip their beaks into Streams of Your Tax Dollars to fund the growth of Communist operations and to indoctrinate your children, as party fanatics cheer them on. Articles is in this series are about the deceitful lack of accountability & faux transparency in many county governments. Operating with accounting systems designed to maximize obsfuscation and to make life easy for bureaucrats, there are no real checks & balances in county government. In an age filled with out of control political corruption, on all levels of government, dishonest politicians & king pin bureaucrats (KleptoCrats) constantly ask you to trust them more & more. We believe many STP MuniBond Proposals merely reflect Political Arrogance & include Corruption.
