A Texas judge is calling for a tax increase to pay for more deputies in preparation for a possible “civil war” if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

Lubbock County Judge Tom Head told KJTV-TV on Monday that a 1.7 cent tax increase for the next fiscal year is necessary to prepare for the “worst case scenario: civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe.”

“We’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking — we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy,” Head said. “What’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? [Obama'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,” he said


IMHO ~ Don't like the idea of a tax increase for county preps, but at least he's awake!

Exit Question ~ Is it just me, or does the news anchor have an elitist smirk on his face as he introduces this segment?

I somewhat think that this judges statements are nothing more than a way tp get the people of his awake community to agree to a tax increase because on most areas of Texas you wouldn't need more well trained deputies when you have the well trained public on your side .... I like that it made headline news on CNN though but I can't take him seriously when he is wanting to do what so many people are already fed up with and raise taxes to ward off a tax raiser? Just my .02 though but if what he talks about ever happens 5 more deputies won't do a thing and he addresses nothing about supply for the citizens of the county just an armed resistance as if 50 or however many officers could do it alone
