Lubbock, Texas Judge: Tax increase necessary for inevitable civil war if Obama reelected

A Lubbock County, Texas, judge is asking for a tax increase to hire deputies for the inevitable civil war he believes would follow President Obama’s re-election.

The way he puts it, Judge Tom Head wants to prepare for the “worst”, which to him means “civil unrest, civil disobedience” and possible “civil war”, according to a report from Fox 34 Lubbock.

Judge Tom Head and Commissioner Mark Heinrich told the station this week that a 1.7 cent tax increase for the next fiscal year was necessary to prepare for many contingencies, including Obama’s re-election. He also mentioned to the station that the county needs a pay increase is needed for the district attorney’s office and more funds to pay for more sheriff’s office deputies.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the (United Nations), and what is going to happen when that happens?,” Head asked the station during a Monday interview. “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.”

Head also seems to fear the retaliation of such civil unrest.

  • If you don’t believe it could happen, check your back e-mails—separate arms of the gubb’ment stockpiling ammo, giving control of our guns to the UN, Odumbass with the authority to declare Marshall Law, etc! I think if they need that much ammo, you better stock up yourself! I am!

    Careful judge! Big Sis might reserve a bed in a mental hospital for you like they did for the Marine posting on facebook. The road to tyranny begins with the subjugation of speech.

    I’m cautious and alerted when I hear someone posing a tax increase justified as I see this. The progressive way is to justify taxes for a war cause: a real war in WWI or WWII, a pseudo war like the War on Poverty, and now the threat of war such as this unrest. The city and county should be working with state officials to prepare for unrest, and should already have taxes and resources in place for such an occasion. This was the lessons learned from the Shay’s Rebellion, etc. If the state and lower authorities are unprepared for civil unrest, they have been neglecting their duties, and prioritizing other spending projects. Rather than impose a new tax, use the revenues you have and, if necessary, cut extraneous expenses to fund additional defense needs.
