[Welcome, Anchoress readers! Don’t miss Sarah Palin’s response to Obama calling her uninformed about nuclear policy, my take on the stupidity of the entitled, plus if you want to make a difference check out The Kitchen Cabinet organization of Conservative Women!]
According to projections by the Tax Policy Center: About 47% of U.S. households will pay no federal income tax — none, Nada, ZIP! How can that be you ask?
Either their incomes were too low, or they qualified for enough credits, deductions and exemptions to eliminate their liability.
Cool you say! Hope I’m one of that 47%, right? Well, let’s look at that a bit. Those 47 percent of taxpayers do vote, and they want government services and entitlements, so they vote for Representatives and Senators and a President that will raise taxes on the rest of us to keep their nests well-feathered. On any regular year, this would be the eternal push-and-shove of a benevolent America that cares about its poor and wants to help those falling on hard times.
This ain’t that kind o’ year!
This is the year of the TAXINATOR! This is the year of the beginnings of wealth redistribution the likes of which we’ve never seen before in the United States! This is the year of Obama — our first socialist President — in deeds, if not yet in words. Marx would be proud! Consider this Marx quote, “From each, according to his ability; to each, according to his need.” That one must be tattooed on the inside of Barack’s eyelids!
Speaking of Karl Marx — here’s a good one: “[A] new revolution is possible only in consequence of a new crisis[.]” Sound eerily familiar?
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” — Rahm Emanuel: Obama’s Chief of Staff
Marx also said, “The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.” Along with this, “Democracy is the road to socialism.”
OK Okie — What’s all this Karl Marx crap about anyway?
Glad you asked, Grasshopper. Our cherubic-Conservative sage, Glenn Beck has that covered up, down, sideways and back again with his examination of the young Barry Obama and all those that surrounded the boy, the adolescent, the young man, and the emerging politician. [H/t: Cousin Joe] From his parents and the mentor selected by his grandparents to help him cope with his “blackness”, to his collegiate associations, to his selection of Church in Chicago and closeness to that pastor, to his associations in Illinois to those that he has surrounded himself with in this administration:
Barack Obama has been baptized in and continues to bathe in Marxist/socialist teachings and philosophy.
Barack Obama is obsessed with FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA!
Barack Obama is obsessed with the redistribution of wealth!
Why do these guys — Progressives — keep trying to do this? It has never worked — anywhere! It always ends poorly, with hundreds of millions of innocents slaughtered:
Russia! China! Vietnam! Cambodia!
The social democracies of Europe are in decline and will most likely fail, becoming radical-fundamentalist Islamic states.
The Progressives in our midst are in love with being more like Europe!
Which brings up the last item in this rant: a proposed NATIONAL VALUE-ADDED TAX!
Republicans who argue that President Obama’s deficit commission is likely to consider a European-style value-added tax just got some fresh evidence.
Congressional Budget Office director Doug Elmendorf told reporters this morning that his agency is studying a VAT as part of its “strategic planning” for the future — one in which the $1.5 trillion budget deficit and $12.5 trillion debt must be addressed by policy makers.
“Many people in Congress are interested in it,” Elmendorf said, without specifying who.
A VAT is a type of sales tax in which each stage of the production process is taxed. It has the capability of raising huge amounts of revenue for the government.
Just imagine paying an additional 20 to 25 percent federal sales tax on top of your state and local sales taxes, each and every time you buy something. A $4 hamburger would be $5. A $400 net-book would then cost you $500. A $20,000 car would become a $25,000 purchase!
America can’t afford this. The other side of that is the fact that America can’t afford Obamacare, Cap & Tax, and all those federal bailouts without doing something like this — or else we risk hyper-inflation the likes we’ve never seen before. Those of us that made it through the Carter years of stagflation (ever increasing consumer prices along with over 20% interest on cars and homes!) knows of what I write.
Remember Rahm’s words: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
Time to work like the hairy dickens to get these Progressive Democrats out of power and reestablish some fiscal responsibility — before it really does become too late!
