Call in the Clowns
Regardless of what the leftist fake news media would have us believe, there are some real problems in the Democrat party at several levels that could very well damage it for a long time.
Not thinking is one of them, making false assumptions based on past success’s is another.
Among the first things for conservatives to seriously consider before over-reacting to the Left’s antics, is to know that if what falls from their mouths is any evidence of their intellectual acumen, then what we are really witnessing now, under Pelosi and Schumer, is not a serious political party debating what’s good for America, but a circus side show with Trump as the ring master.
Common sense appears to be totally lacking, overtaken by Marxist ideology. Crowing about the rule of law or constitutional restraints are simply erratic thought processes on our part if we do not understand the Left’s real mission, a socialized one world government with them in charge. The consequences of an out of date document (the US Constitution) that limits government, not encourages it, is the key to how and why they behave as they do.
In defense of their objectives, they utter comments of absolute stupidity in the belief the masses will agree with them. How about this quote, supposedly from a Vermont State Democratic Senator: “We must be able to arrest people before they commit crimes. By registering guns and knowing who has them, we can do that, if they have guns they are pretty likely to commit a crime.” How about, “Homicide is the leading cause of murder.” by Shelia Jackson Lee; or “May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers means little…” That’s from the Democrat House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. Oh yes, she has more. For example: “If we hadn’t fought the war on terror, the VA wouldn’t be having so many problems.” I like this one, also from the incredible Nancy Pelosi: “Building a wall will violate the rights of millions of illegals.” She also said: “We should only deport illegal aliens if they do something illegal,” and this gem, “Just because someone is here illegally doesn’t mean they broke any of our laws.”
We can’t leave out Maxine Water: “The next Supreme Court Justice should be an illegal immigrant.” Did she really say that? Don’t forget Hank Johnson, the Rep. from Atlanta, Ga. who opined, at a finance sub-committee hearing his fear that the island of Guam could be in danger of capsizing if the US Marine Corps landed a brigade of marines there.
Chuckie Schumer can’t be left out. He said: “Time and time again, we find “Progressive” laws getting struck down. And, it’s always, always the ones the Constitution is against. These right-wing judges don’t think for themselves, they just do whatever the Constitution says, and it’s time for that to end.” Say what?
Indian princess & Presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren told us: “we need judges to be advocates of Progressive laws, not people who will bow to the whims of the Constitution, putting its extremist values of freedom of speech and freedom of religion against our agenda.” And not to be omitted, Sen. Cory Booker opined: “we’re sick and tired of the Constitution sitting in the National Archives, manipulating everything we do.”
These silly Progressive clowns, really believe that they want to run our government but without the constraints of law. They make up laws as they go along like children do in the school play ground. To even consider that idea could quite possibly ignite another bloody civil war. Are we ready for that?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Tax Incentives, Why?
So, Marco Rubio is the newest wannabe ‘Judas’ in the Republican stable. In the GOP Tax reform plan he demands that the tax reform plan must increase child tax credit incentives to the poor, or he won’t vote for it. This is so he can get re-elected in a Florida now filling up with refugees from hurricane wrecked Puerto Rico, not to mention Obama’s islamists, poverty fleeing Haitians and third worlders swarming across our southern borders to join in the fray.
We would expect Join McCain to do it. He would claim to see some imminent danger to the Republic if he deigned to support a Trump initiative that would allow Americans to keep more of their own earnings so, he would vote against it. But, little Marco? Naw!
Everything government does is based on a supposed “crisis of human affairs.” Who, exactly determines what that crisis is or should be? Why, politicians of course! California forest fires might fit the definition but people should have fire insurance and not build homes in foothills covered with brush that has the flashpoint of gasoline. The flooding and destruction that comes with hurricanes, unusual storms, zombie apocalypse and etc. could be a concern for government, but not the federal government. It’s not in their job description (the Constitution)! If you want to live in a flood zone, buy insurance. “Ya pays your money you takes your chances.”
What little Marco wants is that you and I, as wage earning tax payers, and we do pay our taxes in order to avoid going to jail, allow the government to take a bit more of those taxes we pay and squander it on other people, basically third worlders unqualified to be productive Americans anyway. Why are they allowed to receive incentives from us the the plight of our veterans is ignored. Why should illegals be rewarded without expending the effort required to get it?
As I understand it, Puerto Rico needs to be rebuilt. So does Haiti. Why are those people here in our country then, living nearly for free? We can’t afford ‘em anymore. Politicians are solely responsible for this near financial disaster of good intentions we are now facing yet, like lil Marco, they keep adding on “benefits” that we can no longer afford. Admittedly, right now, some Americans exult at the rising stock market earning big bucks. When the Europeans stop sending their money here to avoid their own coming EU collapse, and the cash pool available for our government to dip into ends and then we’ll have to face the consequences. It will not be happy.
I should think that welfare, including child incentive tax credits, should have strict, enforceable limits. Recipients of government welfare should be absolutely limited to three children and NO more. Besides, I cannot find one amendment in the US Constitution that permits government to dispense taxpayer money for any other purpose than those enumerated therein. I do read in the 10th Amendment, words that precisely limits what the federal government can and cannot do and that includes doing good deeds. Doing good deeds should belong to the states.
This form of thinking, spending our money outside that permitted by the constitution, is done by politicians who want to keep their jobs by showing favoritism to the abundant numbers of poor voters who will, naturally, vote to maintain free government stuff. If welfare was totally returned to the States, as the 10th amendment allows, the federal deficit and debt, will depress, along with the taxes they steal, and we will all be happier. Taxpayers in states near financial collapses, like California, Illinois and Connecticut are now experiencing, would also put an end to that foolishness. So would term limits for federal politicians. We should have the incentive to spend or save our own money not give it to government to spend foolishly. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (15Dec17)
Let me try to understand this. We are debating changes to our “Progressive” tax code, to make it easier for politicians to shake us down with us liking it, with people who can’t balance the checkbook and won’t listen to us anyway. Am I missing something?
So far, I have not yet heard the words “Fair Tax” enter this discussion. Why is that? Well, It’s all about economic control that allows politicians to pick and choose winners and losers. That power alone allows them to keep their jobs, stiff us, and make us play their game. I’m tired of it.
When corrupt politicians control our lives and we don’t recognize what it is doing to us, we allow their actions to pass on without complaint hoping apparently, that somebody else will do something. Americans just want to be left alone to provide for their families and their retirements, and it’s always the damn politicians who stand in our way. Less government means more freedom and I think the crippling effect of government deciding who pays how much, is unconstitutional anyway. A Fair Tax would solve that.
Congressional Republicans are ineffective at governing. Before, a few Congresses had over seventy GOP co-sponsors for the “FairTax”. Today, it’s half that. The reason was that it was once safe for them to say; “Yes, we support the Fair Tax” but, they never had an inkling they would actually have a chance to vote for it. They don’t want that. Now they just ignore it and hope it goes away.
When the Republicans became the majority and changing the tax code became a serious issue, they could still talk around it. With Trump’s election, Republicans went into a panic mode because they can’t or don’t want to explain the FairTax, let alone implement it.
I have talked with congressional campaigners in past elections and realized most are clueless about how the real tax system works or how the Fair Tax could improve economics for all.
This might help explain Obama’s twenty trillion dollar national debt he saddled us with leaving Donald Trump to take the blame when it all collapses, as it will, shortly.
The most important reason for their impotence is that under the Fair Tax politicians lose control over us. ‘Nuf said?” They would lose their power to reward and punish Americans using the current tax code and its enforcement arm, the IRS Gestapo, as a weapon. With the Fair Tax, loopholes would be closed and there would be no reason for the corruption lobbying encourages. Lobbyists bring money, and favors to our public servants ensuring the continuation of government corruption, not because money corrupts but because politicians are corruptible. One only need look at the Clinton Foundation and the Podesta Group to see real crime rings that can run circles around the Mafia. The changes wrought could be incalculable. Patronage would be threatened, tax lawyers and tax preparers would go belly up, and, lacking a “raison d’faire,” corrupt politicians would go home and try to exist off their congressional retirements. Not too shabby. With the Fair Tax we could also demand, because we desperately need it, term limits at all levels of government, not just the President.
But, that ain’t gonna happen. You know it and I know it because we simply do not have the power to lift the yoke of oppression off our shoulders or stop the lash on our backs and, be it a Democrat, a Republican or far left Socialists like uncle Bernie and Aunt Warren, our public servants in Washington won’t allow that. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Nov17)
