BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- One way to resolve the North Dakota Legislature's endless squabbling about property taxes is to abolish them, says a legislator who proposes a constitutional amendment to accomplish the goal within three years.

That has to be the biggest insult a government can throw at you. I knew they did this in many countries around the world but I thought the USA was founded against this kind of thing....no?
