Commonsense Property Rights Coalition to Meet to Discuss Common Core, Homeschooling, High Taxes
The Common Sense Property Rights Coalition will meet Monday August 3 at 6 pm at Fred’s Fish House in Mammoth Springs according to board member Kevin Jotz. The main speaker of the evening will be Brandsville resident Karl Reid, author of a series of popular novels known as the Joseph books. Reid has studied Common Core and the modern educational system and home schooling and will be speaking on how to improve the education system.
The meeting will also include an update on the Oregon County property tax assessment, the state laws regulating the State Tax Commission, and how to file an appeal. Many citizens are concerned because their property tax assessments have gone up by 50% to 100%. State law mandates that any increase of more than 15% must be accompanied by a physical appraisal of the property. The PRC sponsored a peaceful protest demonstration at the Oregon County Courthouse last month.
“This is an organization concerned with protection of private property rights. The group believes that without protections of private property rights nothing else is secure. The right to own and reasonably use private property is a cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution, differentiating our country from others around the world. As John Adams, one of our nation’s Founding Fathers and our second president, said: ‘The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” For more information at 417-264-2435 or 417-270-1724.”
