Unintended Consequences?

Grover Norquist requests politicians sign "no new taxes" pledge.

Many candidates and elected officials sign the pledge.

Many elected officials abide by the "no new taxes" pledge.

Many cities, counties, states, and other units of government are short of funds to run basic governmental services.

Citizens resort to their own methods to fill in the gaps - because of loss of funding for basic governmental services.

Well meaning, but unqualified and inadequately trained citizens take the role of law enforcement and tragic unintended consequences occur. end
