Property tax is the reason we are not free.

Ok well I am all for less taxes so this is good. That would make Texas completely tax free which is odd. But I have always thought that governments merely provide a service and if it is a good one people will pay for it voluntarily.

Indeed, eliminating the property tax would spur huge amounts of growth. I for one, would consider moving.

Cool, but I wish that was produced better if it's going to be on TV.

For sure, it's pretty amateurish.

Also, it would be great if this concept went viral.

Texas would not be "tax free" under this plan. Sales taxes on houses and other items would generate the money needed for government to continue operating inefficiently.

Here's the plan (http://www.victoriawatchdogs.com/files/Medina_Prop_Tax_Report.pdf) Medina cited during her campaign.

Here's an amazing speech given by Medina in Victoria, TX on 2/10/2010 where she touches on this subject:

Yeah, Texas would still have a sales tax. However, without the ridiculously high property taxes, things would be much better.

I agree, but we can't overlook the size of government as the other major enemy of freedom.
