Reasons For Seeking Election: I am seeking to be elected your next Governor in order to give you the tax relief to which you are entitled by law, to get you your civil and constitutionally guaranteed monetary rights under the Oregon and United States Constitutions, and to create more jobs in Oregon. I intend to implement your relief by both a 50% property tax reduction and a 90% capital gains tax reduction immediately upon election November 7. This relief occurs for you because of legal errors and ignoring of Oregon and United States Constitution requirements. I intend also to take Oregon properly into the international community by implementing a $1 Oregon Income Tax Credit for you and all taxpayers, whenever any business headquartered and incorporated in Oregon has, establishes, or maintains an operating office or business enterprise in any foreign country or territory that maintains a full circulating gold and silver coinage among its people. It is my plan, moreover, for tax free interest on gold and silver savings accounts opened at Oregon chartered banks, and to provide at least a 30% discount to Oregon income taxpayers if they pay in the honest dollar - a gold coin. Vote Leitch 4 Governor, $$ 4 You!
