Recent Court Decisions

Cooper Howard reports on two recent SCOTUS decisions that will change government finance over time, and perhaps raise government credit scores.

The first decision requires sales tax on internet sales. Nevada is the most dependent of all states on sales tax to pay for state and local governments, so this ruling should have an exaggerated result for Nevadans. The boost in cash flow will be big. Internet sales tax revenue will be 100% paid by Nevada residents. Tourists don’t get to participate.

The second decision likely won’t have any impact in Nevada for reasons explained in the article.

Liberty Watch Magazine Endorsement

Here’s how Liberty Watch endorsed in the race:

State Treasurer

Two Republicans are vying to be our next State Treasure and for Liberty Watch readers this is an easy decision. Newcomer Derek Uehara vs. Republican Super Hero Bob Beers.

Uehara lacks the knowledge or experience to be Treasurer, and from speeches he has given on the campaign trail, it appears he has very little knowledge of what it means to be a Republican. His position on Education Savings Accounts is discombobulated and schizophrenic at best. NO ON UEHARA.

Bob Beers is a proven commodity for Republicans, a Certified Public Accountant, Beers has served as State Republican Party Treasurer, and also in various leadership roles as, State Assemblyman, State Senator and Las Vegas City Councilman. Beers personifies conservatism, Beers’ knowledge of finance and his experience as a legislator will service the people of Nevada well. Our tax dollars will be in safe hands with Beers at the helm of the Treasurer’s office. Liberty Watch endorses BOB BEERS.

Tom Mitchell Endorsement

Another endorsement for Beers, this from long-time Nevada writer Tom Mitchell:

Nevada’s next state treasurer should be Republican Bob Beers, a CPA who has served in five sessions of the Nevada Legislature and is a former Las Vegas City Councilman. He was one of the “Fearless Fifteen” who stopped Gov. Kenny Guinn from placing a gross receipts tax.

The treasurer’s job is to hold the states purse strings. Beers knows how to do that.
