social network for conservatives
Obama is using his normal M O of class warfare again with the often used " tax the rich. " A tax hike on people who earn more than a million a year. Well the only people I know who earn that kind of money own businesses. The very same people who can raise the prices on everything the rest of us buy. We can all pay for the tax increase. Don't forget shipping costs for every single product we buy is moved by a millionaire. Each and every person who has any control over the pay check they bring home will be sure to take care of themselves. So the end result will be raises for the rich and none for the employee.
Obama thinks there will be a surge in goverment revenue but this isn't true. Not in the least, as a matter of fact less money will flow due to fewer products and services being sold and paid for. Inflation 101, and stupid people every where want to vote for this nightmare in the American Dream.
There once was a woman named Leona Helmsley. She was crucified by the press for saying "Only the little people pay taxes". The irony of this is she was quite correct!
The elected officials of the United States of America created the disparity in the tax system to guarantee their elections into office and reelections and pay off the people that got them into office!! 95%+ of the electeds are totally CORRUPT and DO NOT CARE about ”We the people”! They only care about 2 things, getting reelected and how much they can raise taxes before “We the people” have had enough and revolt!!
ONLY Ron Paul believes the time for that revolution is NOW!! The rest of the politicians are just “more of the same”!! Do you want the problems fixed or are you actually happy with the way things are??
Ronald Reagan was correct… “Govornment is NOT the solution… government IS the problem!!”
The problem is quite simple. Apparently most citizens are simpler! The proof of this is they keep voting for the people that are screwing them!?!?
It is astonishing how most of the media misleads the citizens (for the electeds) in the wrong direction and the citizens never seem to recognize their lies!
These disparitys were never intended to benefit “We the people” just the electeds and their friends that put them into office and keep them in office!! The problem is that simple!
If reelection to any office in the land was not possible the electeds would have to do their jobs correctly to build monuments to themselves, and the problems of the USA would not be happening.
I am not a big fan of Warren Buffet but he has an interesting plan; (my comments are in bold)
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
Subject: Let us all speak up!
Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes ," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. (I say -3% or balance will never happen)
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971... before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land... all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office. Just like the rest of “We the people”.
Their pay and all benefits would be less than the average pay of the average citizen of the USA after the “rich” have been removed from the numbers!
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
At somewhat less than “We the people”. With NO special exeptions!
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
My comment; Congress should never be paid more than the mean average paid to normal citizens after the higher incomes are removed from the math.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
My comment; If any elected official of the USA violates any laws they should be given the maximum and most draconian punishment available. After all they cannot say they didn’t know about any law since they write the laws!!
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves at the expense of “We the people”.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their, one or two, term(s), then go home and back to work.
Our present officials have made themselves into elitist legislators without even asking our permission!! I would have answered “Hell no” to that request!!
If each person emails this to a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive this message. Maybe it is time.
ALL the electeds of the USA have designed the collapse of the USA. This collapse is in it’s final stages now. The chance to stop it may be in the past.
I couldn't agree with your comment more!
Real world : It's hard to believe that the seated Congress would vote for any kind of restrictions to the career choice they have made. When any person who is driven to pursue power over others and is faced with the option of restriciting that power or ending it? They will normally fight it with every tool they have. This is only human nature and can be observed on all levels of human interaction. Within our own families, at work, team sports we all experience single indviuals attempting to maintain a dominate position over others.
Warren Buffett has only stated that with power there should be resonsibility and reprecussions based on performance.
It's a social fact the higher any of us rise the less these values apply. The only Watch Dogs for morality who have had any success has been Orginized Religon. A division of power and influence over the populace is nessary to have any hope of an even hand in leadership. As Orginized Religon is destroyed by science our Leaders gain in power and the reins of morality are stripped away. Without a ballance of power the end result is always TYRANNY.
I am fearful that the American people have forgotten they shouldn't vote for the same person 3 times in a row.
muammar quadaffi is a perfect example of this problem. Over 40 years he stole billions from the people of Libya. He had all the money... he could have walked away and retired some where. But it wasn't the money... it was the power he was after. He had the power to have you shot dead any time he wanted.
The U.S. gov't at all levels has this power today. They like to abuse you viciously first. They will first make you broke, then homeless by costing you everything you have. It's an effective example to others that disagree with them. But, like your house cat, they will tire of bleeding you eventually and kill you off.
In 1910 the FED started their plan to enslave all citizens of the USA. Read the book "The Creature from Jekyll island". Author is G.Edward Griffin. The IRS is NOT about collecting money to run the government...
That is the ruse (trick) not the fact.It IS all about fear of the gov't! That is how all tyrannys start and work.
The U.S. federal gov't has implemented slavery on all of it's citizens. Specifically "economic slavery". All elected officials in the U.S. are involved. This is what the IRS is for. It enforces that slavery.
The gov't never cared what color it's slaves were. The slaves were to be freed by 1825. The democrat party said "No". Jim Crow was a democrat. So are most of their brothers in the KKK.
The right to actually OWN real estate in the USA was cancelled around 1900. When the gov't started "real estate tax". Just like any rental if you don't pay the rent/tax they throw you out.
Fairfax Va. has a tax on the ownership of vehicles. If you don't pay they will send people with guns to steal your property so they can sell it for the tax money.
I know several people that have moved out of the USA, forever, because of this.
