This was written and published eight years ago right here by your’s truly as the debt ceiling “debate” strikes again.
Wheels on the bus go round and round.
ABOLISH INCOME TAX
If used properly Facebook and the internet can be powerful positive forces. In my last post I requested my words be shared everywhere, all across the land:) I thank all of you who’ve done so and will do so in the future. One voice at a time is exactly how we will make a difference and restore OUR country.
One Facebook friend made me laugh and smile. He copied and pasted my column onto a page that was extolling the virtues of California Governor Jerry Brown. The people on this page don’t usually enjoy facts or my literary sense of humor. Silly people. Don’t they know Trix are for kids!:)
The group page was called “Thinkprogressive.org.” The “thinkers” were excited because “Governor Moonbeam” (their words) was “calling” for 50% renewal energy in the next couple of decades in California.
Jerry Brown’s quote was this: “the challenge is to build the future, not steal from it”. Wow…that was deep, and if you actually read the sentence again you’ll see how absurd this mindset really is.
Never in my life have I thought it a challenge to “build” the future. The future is coming one way or the other. Besides, common sense tells me (rather than “calling” for things) to work hard, save my money and be generous. Things will be just fine. Did you hear the word “steal anywhere in there?”
The “thinkers” were excited about something that was being “called for”. Universal health care has been called on for years. Now that it’s here it’s neither universal or providing the promised health care. 30 to 40 million Americans supposedly didn’t have health insurance before the unaffordable “Affordable Care Act”. The “thinkers” loved this program.
How many uninsured Americans will be covered after billions if not trillions of dollars have been wasted. Maybe 6 maybe 7 million (less if we take out dental work) out of the 30 to 40 million who “needed” it. Good job “thinkers”. For the cost we probably could have put a clinic in every town across the nation.
Rather than “subsidizing” the individual, then practicing the bait and switch with out of control monthly premiums they cannot pay, we could have offered $10.00 co-pays for 95 percent of the people who show up at the emergency room for the flu! Good job thinkers!
Let’s get excited about a politician “calling” for something he will have no control over nor has any inkling of the scientific process. Let’s get excited about a train no one in California will ever ride.
To all public retirees in California: Your money is being spent on a choo choo train.
Don’t take my word for it. Go ask Stockton. Go ask San Bernardino.
While the “thinkers” were patting Governor “Moonbeam” (again their words) on the back for pontificating, the public retirement systems are barely hanging on due to poor management and promises that can never be delivered.
As we speak right now the public retirement systems are underfunded.
The only reason they have any money is the over leveraged stock market. Borrowed money on borrowed time. Or in other terms. Obama bucks on Yellin lies. To be “fair” it could also be called Obama bucks on Bernanke lies. Heaven forbid the “thinkers” stop screaming “hands up” and go back to the “war on women”. But let us return to our regular programming.
“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by sword, the other is by debt.” John Adams.
The “thinkers” believe in “big or centralized government”. In Russia and China this is called Communism. In Germany it was called Fascism. In Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc., it’s called Islam.
They also believe in a consumption economy. They believe in debt. Barack Obama made a statement (yes there is video “thinkers”) that currently our debt isn’t a problem but in ten years it will be. He said this as he added trillions more while screaming the government was being shutdown. Wow.
Ladies and Gentlemen. I actually laugh at things like this now. “Thinking” economists will tell us we have to borrow and spend more money to get out of debt. A five year old will tell you this is ridiculous.
“The economy is about to boom!” Well of course it looks like that to the “thinkers”. When you borrow trillions AND manipulate our currency the items in your “mirror” may appear much larger than reality. Any economy based on consumption will always be joined by debt and will eventually succumb.
The “thinkers” have given us massive over consumption at every level. Drugs, sexual promiscuity, and debt. Sound familiar? “Tune in, turn on, drop out”.
Freedom will always be accompanied by production and equity. To solve serious problems we need serious people. Sober minds will tell you we have a debt crisis that is almost here. Actually, it is here.
The politicians just keep feeding the beast knowing full well the monster they’ve created will consume us all when it isn’t fed (currency crisis via the debt amid eventual rising interest rates).
Paraphrasing Albert Einstein. The organism that created the problem can never be the organism to fix the problem. We all know this to be true and yet we continue practicing insanity, doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
But there is a better way and it starts right here. For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you know I detailed specific systems that have to be put in place to derail this oncoming crash. The most important will be to abolish all income tax.
Any and all Federal income tax must be removed including, income, payroll, corporate, inheritance, etc. It is replaced with a consumption tax.
Let me just say this right now. For any of you “thinkers” don’t bother with a long diatribe of wasteful verbiage about how a consumption tax is regressive and hurtful to poor people. It’s you and your lack of ethics that is harmful to poor people! Take your guilt and your race to the bottom Eeyorish mentality back to ThinkProgressive.com.
First off all taxes are REGRESSIVE.
Second. Read the book! Everything is spelled out in there. Do your homework before you open your mouth. Otherwise you will be “BBDed”. Blocked, banned, deleted. I don’t do free therapy anymore. We have a nation to restore.
Abolishing income tax fixes two main issues.
(1) By removing these regressive and oppressive tax systems corporations all over the world will race each other to be in America providing tens of millions of new jobs. This will increase the value of our soil and allow us to rebuild our neighborhoods.
We will lead the world in innovation and production on OUR land. By harnessing our natural resources, specifically natural gas, an energy system can be created where eventually after the debt is paid off we could abolish the consumption tax as well. I will explain this at a later date. I digress.
Real Unemployment (not fraudulent numbers like 6%) will disappear as we free the American entrepreneur, business owner, and hardest working labor force on the planet. Yes we will have to pay a little bit more for our products or services we use, but it will be our CHOICE. That money will also be spent locally by our own hands. Not ripped away from us by politicians who treat our labor as a game of Monopoly that crushes us with debt and sends our bravest around the world fighting and dying for countries who aren’t willing to pay the price to be free.
(2) Belongingness. Again for those of you who’ve read Late Bird you know how important this is to a free society.
In America we get our belongingness need met through our families and jobs. Currently we have more people on Welfare than ever in our history. The “thinkers” will point to the Depression (I will not call it Great. There is nothing great about a Depression) and surmise things were worse.
The only reason we aren’t seeing at least 60 million people lining up for food in the streets on a daily basis is technology. The EBT card replaced the soup lines.
To be a productive member of society and get your belongingness need met you have to have a purpose. Our first purpose is to take care of ourselves and our families. When you do not work you cannot take care of yourself or your family. You have no purpose. You are simply taking up space and our families suffer for this. Our communities suffer for this. Our children suffer for this.
The “thinkers” will tell you all life is precious. It simply isn’t. I’ve dealt with rapists, child molesters, and murderers. They’ve ruined and or taken innocent lives and will do so again given the chance. They are only precious to the “thinkers”.
Talk about progress.
Shoulder to shoulder brothers and sisters. Keep spreading the word. I am ready to serve you. To serve America. When we have enough we will serve her together.
