Property Tax Revolution - If North Dakota can do it, why can't we?

On June 12, 2012, the voters of North Dakota will vote on Measure 2, a comprehensive state constitutional amendment that, if passed, will abolish the property tax once and for all in that state, such that property ownership, and not rental from the government, becomes their reality.
