Dear Conservatives and Patriots,

Let’s take a look at three areas that might cost us big bucks come 2019! Rail Transit, pending Carbon Tax and of-course that failed ConAm.

Firstly, let’s take a really good look at the article below regarding the rail public-private partnership aka P3.  Now from what I understand, this private partner would take out a loan for whatever monies are needed for the rail.  They would take it out and not the Hawaii taxpayer, sounds good so far.  However! These private-partners are guaranteed that the government aka we the tax-payer will not only pay them back the money for this loan but with a guaranteed profit! … yes you might want to read that section again! It’s like the game “which is faster the hand or the eyes.”  Now I am a simple person, however it sure looks like we the people are on the hook regardless, again!

Then let’s jump to the “Carbon Tax” there is great article below, “Heartland Institute Brings Truth to COP24 UN Climate Conference” so before legislator’s push through another burdensome tax on us, they might want to take a close look at this article and what it shares about climate change.   (I do plan on sending this article to all of our newly-elected and re-elected officials for review)

Lastly, I do believe that the ConAm question that was rejected during our the general election will probably morph into one form or another.  Our legislators and governor will not give up and will try to find some way to further burden us the people, in order to please their special interest.

Just my humble thoughts … but do think about it.
