The worm turns.
However uncharacteristic, prominent local conservative Marjorie Haun, who bills herself as “ReaganGirl,” has found a tax she likes, and she’s urging others to like it, too — and vote for it.
Haun backs a proposed sales tax increase on the next local ballot that will help support the Mesa County District Attorney’s office and the Mesa County Sheriff Department.
It’s a very weird thing in Mesa County when normally tight-fisted, vocal local conservative goes all out to support a tax.
In January, 2014, Haun a blog written by a third party titled “Taxation: the Enemy of Free Enterprise,” and she normally rails against the evils of taxes in a capitalist society. In addition to opposing taxation, Haun promotes the use of firearms and has written in her blog, “ReaganGirl.com,” that poverty is a lifestyle choice, white privilege is a myth and marijuana use “turns young men into biological young women.”
For the moment, though, ReaganGirl is acting like a good liberal by putting her community’s needs above her own conservative dogma of keeping as much money as one possibly can to oneself.
