“Take CT Back” is the theme for the convention this year
Many who are attending the convention are getting rooms Friday night so they don’t have so long to drive down for the 2nd day, If you’re going to attend & haven’t yet gotten your room I suggest that you do it quickly before they sell out.
This #ThrowBackThursday is in the spirit of fun over the “necessary evil” of paying the federal income taxes.
Do you live in a high state income tax state or a no income tax state?
How long has your state had it’s income tax? Add your comments below so we can talk about taxes in our states.
I recall back in the 90’s when I was busy raising young children when Connecticut became an income tax state.
It was a very nasty election year with Lowell Weicker winning the race for governor simply because he LIED about being willing to veto or sign an income tax bill, he claimed he was against starting an income tax in CT.
Then once he was elected in to office he started with the push to start the income tax rather than getting the state spending at a level that matched or was less than the amount of taxes collected each year.
Do you do your own taxes or do you pay a tax preparer?
If you do your taxes yourself do you use one of the popular tax preparer computer programs such as TurboTax?
Which program do you prefer to use?
But remember #TaxationIsTheft in our current system
Cross Posted Item from another Tillett for CT project
With April 18th being the due date this year for our taxes quickly approaching…
I thought I’d share this video from Remy about the craziness that we all feel about how the chore of doing the yearly taxes…
Do you do your own taxes or do you pay someone else to do them for you?

There was supposed to be a poll for the CT GOP 1st Congressional Debate that was held on Wed Dec 6th 2017 in Windsor CT at the Windsor Public High School
The poll was not widely accessible nor was it available for everyone that watched the debate in person or via livestream to be able to vote because it was a vote by texting to a tele-code which is not available (accessible) on all cellphones nor does it take into consideration the many people who do not wish to get text messages from the CT GOP or it’s candidates which that type of polling opens up anyone voting to
Below is a proper poll which lists all of the currently known candidates on the CT GOP possible Convention ticket in May some are still in the Exploratory phase & others are Declared but did not attend the debate because they had not met the fundraising requirement that the chairman had set of $75,000.00 so they had their own events either prior or during via fabcebook live.
Cast your vote for any of the candidates or write in your own CT GOP candidate
Be sure to share the poll on your social media networks
The poll will close on Jan 9th since the next CT GOP Debate will be held on Jan 10th
The CT GOP is trying something new this election season with the governorship at stake…
For the first time they had on Facebook Live streaming on both the Fox61 & CT GOP pages the video streaming of some of their candidates debating.
First Congressional District Governor Candidate Debate at the Windsor Public High School 6pm to 9pm .
Only a few of the candidates were up on stage because they met the fundraising qualifications set by the party chairman. My understanding is that $75,000.00 minimum had to have been raised to be invited to the debate. There is a combination of both Declared as well as those who only have Exploratory Committees.
Declared Governor Candidate Joe Visconti who did not meet the fundraising qualifications was doing a competing Live Stream on his facebook page so that his critique of the candidates, their answers and some rebuttal to the debate questions – this is similar to what Jill Stein did back in 2016 when she was excluded from the debates.
Below is the video of the debate so that you can watch.
The CT GOP Chairman had a private poll after the debate which the results are being touted on the CT GOP facebook page but sadly the wider republican voting body was not privy to that poll which is quite disappointing. I hope that a better for CT GOP members poll will be emailed out for a true measure of who are the debate winners.
