Redistribution of Income -- On Its Way!
How about Lower Taxes and Repeal the 16th Amendment!
Americans and that includes me need protection from unfair and unreasonable taking of their wages and income through excessive taxation. This administration is waiting to get us so far along that we will not blame them when they open the taxation floodgates. If we take none of their gifts, they can never claim us as property.
My advice is to take no gifts even if at first a big government gift may appear to be desirable. Do not be tempted. Try to avoid Obamacare, and if you are tempted with something more obvious like an ObamaPear or even an ObamanApple, give them all the same short shrift.
Remember the serpent! Though the temptation may be great and the poke in the chest (like Eric Massa, former Congressman) may break the skin, hold on to your self respect, and we all can beat this guy. Obama is as tough as anybody the world has ever seen in waging his arguments. Passage of Obamacare was his penultimate victory. it was like adding a million new diehard batteries to his energy level. He is amazing and because of that, he is very dangerous to you and to America. He's a lot like the domineering lover that you could never shake. If you two are happily married now, my apologies.
Big taxes for all these big spending programs are coming fast.
The big problem is that Obama never dies. I mean figuratively. He has more lives and more energy that the fifth iteration of the energizer rabbit. He and the other scoundrels in his Administration (mostly the czars and the czarinas) are all very smart. They all think they are smarter than you and I. They are playing a game to take over America. So, the stakes are high. The reason businesses are doing poorly and the economy is so bad is because they don;t care a darn about businesses. They care aonly of power. They are continually protective of their reelection chances but as you saw in Obamacare, they will forego them thinking they can dupe the people later. Stay strong and ressit the temptation to take any gifts.
By the way, Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Compensation are not gifts. So, feel free to take as much as you can get.
In the recently passed Obamacare bill, for example, there were some appealing attributes of the bill. These of course had been touted during the same period as the "Republican Ideas."
Quite frankly, as a Democrat, I wish the Republicans did not have all the good ideas in the 111th Congress. It would have been lots easier for US non-addicted Pelosites and Reidites to have a sense of normalcy. Hey, really, who likes Republicans? Maybe not even their wives or husbands. In all fairness, the items, which the Republicans espoused did not include the big Obamatake-over. That is the only reason that Obama himself did not like them on their own merits. Without the big takeover, somebody else may have gotten credit and with the credit, the power of government control.
As a Democrat, I see it as disingenuous that this bill could not have passed without the full takeover of healthcare in 2700 pages. With the reconciliation scheme and with the Amendments added, this baby is actually more than 3,000 pages. Now, to make the people think it is good for them (the Democratic Leadership in San Francisco) they put out the sound bite goodies in the bill to the reasonably uninformed public. Nobody is hanging on Nancy's last word.
They used all of the Republican points in their post-bill propaganda, The Republican points would have made up no more than a 50 page bill. So, my party, the Dems, explained the benefits of Obamacare, a 3000 + page bill, using the Republican ideas that would have constituted just a 50 page bill. So, from my way of thinking, there is 50 pages of healthcare in the bill and 2950 pages of Obama regulations.
No wonder Obama cares about ObamaCare. In many ways the front line of the Democrats' healthcare message was like a plagiarized tune but it played well in America to those who were waiting for action. Everybody forgot that it had been written by a Republican. And other than taxpayers, the 2950 pages for Obama were missed by the consuming public.
Knowing the Democrat players like I do, through studying and hard work I am convinced, unfortunately, that they all tried to bamboozle the public. Robert P. Casey Jr. was among the bamboozlers. Perhaps Casey did not intend to bamboozle anybody but he had been bamboozled himself by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and that is why he still may beleive that he is an honest man.
My party embarrassed me as a conservative Democrat. I want nothing to do with them. Forget about being a Blue-Dog Democrat. That life is not for me. I am a free Democrat and I think that all the other Democrats ought to get the heck out of town because they have already begun to destroy the country and they continue to make it worse. I have no problem with new Democrats whose noses are not already pointed left. Come on in and make America well.
I think America has just one more chance. If the government gets away again from us, we are doomed. Keep the TEA party going so neither Democrats nor Republicans can steal our Democracy.
Do not again fall in love with the representatives who made it this way. If you are from California do not blame the Arizona delegation, blame California. If you're from Pennsylvania, remember before Scott Brown, this bill would have gotten noplace without our own Benedict Arlen Specter and Robert P. Casey, Jr. For his work, Specter received a proper sendoff. The people greeted him with "RAUS, HERAUS, AUS," all of which mean get out of twon. In 2012, Pennsylvanians have another chance with Robert P. Casey, Jr. Tell Casey he is not your kind of Democrat and send him an umistakable message by your vote, "RAUS, HERAUS, AUS."
Scoundrels are often alert because they expect to be caught!
But, the Congressional scoundrels are smart and continually protective of their reelection chances. In the Obamacare bill, for example, appealing attributes of the bill, which in all fairness as noted previously, were also items Republicans espoused without the big takeover, were planned to kick in right away. This was intended so that constituents could once again fall in love with their representatives. But, like most things, Congress lied.
The big tax increases and the minutia control by government over individual freedom is already beginning to occur. However, the big benefits of Obamacare were mis-projected. They are not on their way anytime soon. Remember, they lie. Yes, they are liars. Think of this one. NASA is not a problem eitherfor the Obama administration. That is because the Russians and the Chinese will be getting over $50 million per astronaut per trip to give our folks a ride up and back. Space technology will not stop. Somebody else will lead it. Why not outsource the Astronauts and we can save even more. Why not just photoshop the pictures of the Russians and Chinese. Paint USA all over their Russian and CHinese space suits.
Obama said that by 2025, we plan to be able to conduct the first autopsies of multiple mummified Martians. Let me see, no Coke, no Salt, no two-ply toilet paper.... why would anybody feel liberty was being eroded by the perpetrators we now have in office. Where will Obama be in 2025? It's only about 15 or so years from now. But, unfortunately, the song has already been written.
Low taxes are good for average working men and women because they encourage saving, spending, and investing. They are also good for businesses because lower taxes encourage both economic and job growth. Why is there a problem with jobs right now as we approach the 2012 elections? Because businesses expect massive tax increases that will kill their opportunities to hire new workers. What is this administration's response? More Taxes! Are they nuts?
Their experts say they are right. Just never hire those guys for your personal consulting jobs. Businesses are about to get whacked and that is why there are no jobs. The boom is about to fall. But Robert P. Casey, Paul Kanjorski, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama think everybody will fall in line because you and I are nothing more than dunderheads. Look in the mirror fellas! The job killing taxes are on their way. The tax machine has been in full gear since Obamacare. BTW, Obamacare is a one trillion dollar deal of admitted costs. You know it will cost substantially more. Some say 3 trillion!
Obamacare will be paid for by huge tax increases and Medicare cuts. Nothing is free. Some think the costs will merely be in Medicare Advantage, a nice choice for many Seniors. This is not true. Medicare itself will be cut and Medicare money will be used to pay for the healthcare of those not over 65. It's funny how that was never fully explained to Seniors. People who never put into Medicare will get Medicare benefits. That is what the theft of $600 Billion in Medicare money actually means to Seniors. Don't worry, the Death panels will reduce that cost substantially.
The party in power says that they will bring in enough taxes and enough Medicare cuts that the Obamacare bill will reduce the deficit and the debt. And, right afterwards, Santa Claus, the Tooth Ferry, St. Patrick, and the Easter Bunny will reveal their real identities in Times Square on national TV.
I fully support the consumption-based Fair Tax introduced in recent years. However, the 16th Amendment authorizing the federal income tax must first be repealed. Don't let the government leaders talk about a VAT without you screaming bloody murder. I support your right to determine your own healthcare, not have Obama tribunals with bureaucrats making your health decisions. By the way, you should be able to keep your own money in order to do just that.
My recommendation is that the Fair tax be adopted in addition to drastically cutting the federal corporate income tax to 10% to 20% for corporate revenue earned in the United States. The normal 35% corporate federal income tax should be applied to overseas corporate revenue. This full recommendation is spelled out in another essay but this two-tier approach is to help bring back jobs to the US and offer a disincentive for offshoring.
So that you understand the salient components of the Fair Tax Plan, I have captured from the http://www.fairtax.org/ site, some of its essence below.
What is the Fair Tax plan?
The Fair Tax plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with an integrated approach including a progressive national retail sales tax, a prebate to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality, and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment.
The Fair Tax Act (HR 25, S 296) is nonpartisan legislation. It abolishes all federal personal and corporate income taxes, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security, Medicare, and self-employment taxes and replaces them with one simple, visible, federal retail sales tax administered primarily by existing state sales tax authorities.
The Fair Tax taxes us only on what we choose to spend on new goods or services, not on what we earn. The Fair Tax is a fair, efficient, transparent, and intelligent solution to the frustration and inequity of our current tax system.
The Fair Tax:
• Enables workers to keep their entire paychecks
• Enables retirees to keep their entire pensions
• Refunds in advance the tax on purchases of basic necessities
• Allows American products to compete fairly
• Brings transparency and accountability to tax policy
• Ensures Social Security and Medicare funding
• Closes all loopholes and brings fairness to taxation
• Abolishes the IRS
If there were no cynics emerging about the beauty of Obama and Obamacare then it might be a good deal. When pieces of claptrap hang for any length of time, they start to stink and those who do not want that stink to overwhelm America are already speaking out loudly. Obama and his team are marginalizing them all. I would recommend that we all sign up for a TEA party someplace. While we are busy doing our own thing and Obama is trying to sweep us off a cliff, the TEA party will be standing guard and so, there will always be a big red light before anybody can reach the cliff.
