Fred D. Gunther: Tax-break turnaround

Tax-break turnaround

I have been a political independent my entire life. I have no love for any political party. My outlook and ideals would have been described as “Republican” in a bygone era.

I am also the Republican Party’s target demographic: white, male, middle-aged; a successful self-made businessman with a good income and a modicum of wealth.

Now I understand that the majority in the N.C. legislature has voted me a substantial state income tax break. Well, I know just what I am going to do with my tax savings. I’m going to give it to whatever organization promises to work the hardest to turn these vile fools and their regressive policies out of office.
