    Not only should the gas taxes be repealed, but also all state sales taxes. The lower income families among us are betting hammered by increasingly higher sales tax rates. There should be NO sales taxes.

    Furthermore, the real estate property taxes are preventing many prospective homeowners from affording to own a home in California. A reduction of at least 50% in the annual real estate taxes are necessary to provide Californians with more affordable housing.

    BTW, it is refreshing to see a grassroots convention that is also addressing the true, propaganda-spirit of our news media, and also organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is one of many propaganda mills throughout the country that constantly generates fake news in its ongoing efforts to deceive unwary donors into sending them money. Go figure how SPLC has accumulated well over $300 million in its pro-propaganda war chest. There are many more of these “alt-left” scammers out there, but SPLC is the worst.
