Lubbock County Judge Tom Head and Commissioner Mark Heinrich discussed why it is necessary to raise the local tax rate next year, on Monday, reports Fox 34 News.
The tax increase is needed, they said, for attorneys in the D.A.'s office, more staff for law enforcement and also emergencies, such as President Obama's re-election (video below).
Judge Head said: “He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens? I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."
"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'. And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me' he said, 'yeah, I'll back you'. Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."
