Friends and pro-family supporters,

Now is the time for us to demonstrate AUTHENTIC Chicago values. Our liberty depends upon virtue, and I can think of no greater way to be virtuous than to defend unborn children from the barbaric evil that is abortion.

America is on the path to becoming a nation that values the worth of every one of it’s citizens, even those in the womb.

Join us for March for Life Chicago on January 14, 2018.

Sincerely,

James Michael Francis Komaniecki

LIBERTY DEPENDS UPON VIRTUE

Social Issues ARE Fiscal Issues
Aborted Future Taxpayers & Sterile Homosexual “Marriages” Undermine Our Prosperity

“What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without restraint. Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites;…….. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free.”
– Edmund Burke

“He who is void of virtuous attachments in private life is, or very soon will be, void of all regard for his country. There is seldom an instance of a man guilty of betraying his country, who had not before lost the feeling of moral obligations in his private connections.”
– Samuel Adams

“Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.”
– John Adams

“The phrase ‘the Fall of America’ suggests some cataclysmic event ended the American Empire which had stretched from Maine to California and Florida to Washington. But at the end, there was no straining at the gates, no barbarian horde that dispatched the Empire in one fell swoop. Rather, the Empire fell slowly, as a result of challenges from within and without, and changing over the course of hundreds of years until its form was unrecognizable.”
– The End Of Empires: Rome Vs. America | The Federal Observer

Wanting to make a difference in taxpayers lives

Tax Referendum Sept 19th

Tax Referendum Sept 19th
Letters to the Editor: Wanting to make a difference in taxpayers lives
3:10 pm CDT September 1, 2015 Homer Horizon

Radio host and former Congressman Joe Walsh is coming to Homer Township Saturday, Sept. 19 to make a difference in the lives of the people of Homer Township, getting signatures in support of the property tax referendum initiated by Steve Balich (meeting at Mullets Sports Bar & Restaurant to go get signatures at 1 p.m. and returning at 4 p.m. for pizza). Currently there is enough signatures to get on the ballot. The goal is 2,000 signatures, but 3,000 would be better, to stand up to any challenges. Former Congressman Joe Walsh will help to finish the job making sure it is on the ballot.100_1477100_1474

Once this passes March 15, 2016, the people will be one step closer to taking back control of their government. The issue is not about political parties. It is a people issue benefiting every citizen. Raising property tax takes money from every family. If you rent, taxes go up, then so will your rent. When taxes go up, so do prices you pay when buying things, since business has more expense which will pass on to the consumer. Raising taxes increases the cost of doing business and our cost of living, taking more of our hard-earned cash.

In a representative democracy, citizens allow others — usually elected officials — to represent them in government processes, including property tax increases. Although this is an advisory referendum, meaning the taxing bodies can ignore the will of the people, it is the strongest statement citizens can make to these officials, clearly stating the will of the citizens. This is our opportunity to make a difference and make our voice heard. If a person on a board goes contrary to the will of the people, that person needs to be voted out.

The petition for the March 15 ballot reads: “Shall each taxing body located partially or wholly within Homer Township be required to seek voter approval by referendum prior to increasing its annual total property tax Levy? Yes or No”

I want to thank all the local volunteers, Walsh Freedom, Americans for Prosperity and Joe Walsh for all their help. We are getting close to the goal and will achieve it. God bless everyone!

I am trying to make a difference and know you want to make a difference too. I believe property owners are fed up with the taxes, but feel like stopping increases in the Property Tax Levy is hopeless.
I believe we can make a difference by putting the question on the March 15, 2016 Presidential Primary Election. To accomplish this I need 2000 signatures. I need your help and your desire to make a difference. This is an advisory Referendum that sends a loud and clear message to the people we elect to office that we are fed up and not going to take it anymore.
If you Don’t Live in Homer Township passing this Referendum will inspire people in your Town to do the same as Homer.
Please pass this to your friends

Balich initiates Referendum———-Shall each taxing body located partially or wholly within Homer Township, County of Will, State of Illinois, be required to seek voter approval by referendum prior to increasing its annual total Property Tax Levy?

By Steve Balich 815 557-7196

I am initiating this Referendum to ask the voters to end the debate once and for all about tax increases. Candidates run for office and say they are against property tax increases. They get elected and say the tax is only going up a little so the people won’t mind. They forget a little is a lot when every taxing body raises taxes a little, and over time these yearly increases add up to quite a big amount.

Do voters want their taxes raised based on the vote of 3 to 8 people on a Board?

Shall each taxing body located partially or wholly within Homer Township, County of Will, State of Illinois, be required to seek voter approval by referendum prior to increasing its annual total Property Tax Levy?

Local government spending plays the most significant role in whether or not your taxes increase or decrease. If taxing districts increase their spending, the tax rate will often increase to cover their expenditures. Therefore, even if your Property value goes down, your taxes can go up. Conversely, if taxing districts decrease spending, your property taxes may decrease even if your assessment goes up.

For example, suppose the Township decides they need $1 million in property taxes to operate for the year and the value of all the property in your community is $100 million. The property tax rate is calculated by dividing the amount of tax to be raised by the total value:
Money needed to operate/ Value of all the property in the Township= Tax Rate
$1 million/ $100 million = 1% tax rate
If money needed to operate increases the tax rate will increase. If spending decreases the tax rate will go down since the amount needed to operate is less.
If your property’s value is $100,000, your tax bill would be calculated by multiplying your value by your tax rate:
Value $100,000 x Rate 1% = Property Tax $1,000

If the amount of money requested by the Township to operate stays the same $100 million, and the overall value of your property increased from $100,000 to $125,000, your taxes would increase:
Value $125,000 x Rate 1% = Property Tax $1250

If the total value township property doubles from $100 to $200 million but the amount of money needed to operate stays the same, your tax rate would go down.
Total needed to operate/ total value of all property in Township= Tax Rate
$1 million/$200 million = 0.5 %

This is where the taxing districts say they are capturing the new growth. They raise the Tax Rate to capture a new $100 million in property value. In doing so they raise the tax on everyone.
Property Value $100,000 x Increased rate of 1% plus the original 1% (2%)= property tax $2000
When property values go up unless the rate drops, there will also be a tax increase. Home values are depressed right now and will eventually go up.
Therefore an increase in the Levy (property tax) raises the taxes for everyone in the Township.
If your tax rate increased from 1% to 2%, even if your Property value decreased from $200,000 to $195,000, your taxes would go up:
$195,000 x 2% = $3900 property tax
$200,000 X 1%= $2000 property tax
Foreclosures can cause property taxes to increase because they bring down the total value of the district. Less money to pay the cost of operation.

The township says if they don’t raise the taxes they lose the money forever. They are referring to the compound effect of raising taxes each year. By raising rates 1% every year in 5 years the Rate is 5%
2014 rate is 1%
2015 Rate increased 1% to 2%
2016 Rate increased 1% to 3%
2017 Rate increased 1% to 4%
2018 Rate increased 1% to 5%
