What is the best tax you've ever voted for? I haven't voted for any.

What should be taxed, but isn't? I would have to say, the extremely wealthy.

Who is the last candidate you felt really good about voting for? Well, I never really felt good about any of the candidates for the presidency. Anybody who stands up for family values, I am for.

Can you name one of your school-board representatives? No, actually I can't. My daughter isn't school age yet, and I know I should be concerned, but at this point, I haven't taken the time.

Who should be elected president next year? George W. Bush.

What is the best tax you've ever voted for? Oh, I think the cigarette tax is good, and they do spread it (the money) around a lot.

What should be taxed, but isn't? The accounting departments that work for the big corporations!

Who is the last candidate you felt really good about voting for? Hmmm ... you got me.

What's on this November's ballot? I've gotten the information in the mail and in the newspaper, and I've just read about Amendment 1, about paying for the road work with the cigarette tax. They have sound arguments, but I'm not agreeing with doing that.

Can you name one of your school-board representatives? No.

Who should be elected president next year? I haven't picked anybody out yet. It's a wait-and-see thing. It's a little funny, I don't think anybody's too serious about it.
