Young Conservative Kid Asks For Help in Defeating Proposition A Tax Hike
John Burns, the 26-year-old treasurer for the Citizens for Better Transit, is asking for help.
Burns is leading the charge to defeat a proposal to bump the sales tax in St. Louis County.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
“Proposition A is an example of a socialist ballot initiative that would be perfect to fight against!” Burns, 26, of Shrewsbury, told the assembled crowd through a bullhorn. “That’s why I started Citizens for Better Transit. We need your help!”
Just as the Tea Party movement did on the national level a little over a year ago, Burns has emerged from nowhere to serve as one of the most recognizable faces of the opposition to Proposition A, which would raise the county sales tax by a half-cent to help fund the Metro transit agency.
Proponents of Proposition A have reported more than $500,000 in campaign contributions and more than 140 endorsements for the April 6 vote. Burns figures he will have about $150 in his campaign war chest.
Please help the kid out.

The pro-tax campaign has us outgunned. We NEED YOUR HELP NOW. Don’t let these SOCIALIST CLOWNS DEFEAT LIBERTY.
We’re quickly becoming peasants. The government is bankrupting our country and squeezing the middle class dry through massive taxation on healthcare and a million other taxes…taxes like Proposition A, the Metro Tax.
