Watch the clock to the right and see how fast our debt is adding up. My downloads aren’t that fast! So where is this $700 billion coming from that the government is using to bail out the financial institutions, mortgage companies, car makers, et al? Seems to me we don’t really have it to spend.
If we were to run our businesses or homes like the government does, we could write as many checks as we wanted. As long as we didn’t run out of checks we could spend whatever we want. But isn’t this the problem with the companies we are bailing out? What about corporate greed the Democrats were talking about during the election? Now they want to give them gifts or loans because it’s THEIR idea? I have a word for you…
What we are doing is having government prop up failures. Problem is, we have been doing that with our tax dollars for as long as welfare has been around. Just not at the corporate level. Anyone who believes in evolution should relish this change. Let the old species die out and bring on the new evolved creatures to replace them. America won’t stop working for long. Not unless they are paid for NOT working!
Many states have taxpayer’s alliances:
Michigan - must be a tough sell, even though their economy has been decimated by Federal Government policies affecting the car industry.
Wisconsin – though both states are “blue” states and vote for Democrats who LOVE to spend our tax dollars. Problem is, Bush and some Republicans in the house and senate have been just as bad!
Fairfax County, Virginia - Fairfax County spending growing twice as fast as its population!
Florida – With this support, why is nobody asking why these states are not voting in conservatives???
Oxford, Pennsylvania – Didn’t all these states go to Obama who has promised to RAISE TAXES on those who create jobs and opportunities?
Virginia Beach, Virginia – For years, Virginia Beach has been raising taxes and fees to pay for their ill conceived plans and mismanaged special interest projects. Real estate assessments have skyrocketed, and without lowering the tax rate, many folks on fixed incomes are being forced to sell their homes and move from the area.
Napa Valley, (California?) – We’re not getting all the government we’re paying for… thank goodness!
This is but a few of the alliances that have been formed all over our country. We are not alone. Citizens Against Government Waste is a watchdog group who are whistle blowing on government officials who are wasting our hard earned tax dollars. When they steal our money, they steal our time away from the things and people that we love. More will be revealed as we gear back up.

There has been a lot of talk year after year about getting rid of the IRS tax code and moving to the Fair Tax. I have read the book, and it is a great idea. It is actually what the name implies, “fair”. People are taxed by what they purchase and, as you can guess, rich people buy more than poor people. And they buy more expensive things. So why hasn’t this caught on?
Politicians are all about power and getting re-elected. As this year’s election showed, people like the idea of getting tax cuts… even when they are not paying any taxes to begin with. So why would any politician give up that leverage even when it would mean fair taxation for everyone?
Imagine how wonderful it would be if every working person was able to take home 100% of his or her paycheck every payday. How would that boost the economy? If you haven’t read the details, go to the Americans For Fair Taxation website.

The Wall Street Journal has a blog full of tax tips:

Think about it. If businesses and individuals who run small businesses are going to have to pay higher taxes, wouldn’t that money be better spent hiring people and creating new opportunities than giving it to the government to waste?
Democrats love to make fun of the phrase “trickle down economics”, but economics is trickle down, not trickle up as Obama seems to think. With all the smart, rich guys on his side you would think they would explain it to him. After all, take the families that Obama used in his infomercial. How many people have they given jobs to? And then look at Gates and Buffett. Who has created more job opportunities? The poor or the rich? So why tax the ones who drive the economy?
It is our prediction that, if Obama implements the tax increases he is proposing, and the house and the senate go along with him, we will see this economic downturn last a LONG, LONG time. Remember Jimmy Carter? WORSE! Don’t doubt us.

Someone has got to say, “No.” People have to realize that their representatives must stop spending more money than they have or we will collapse as a nation. It’s insanity to continue to do the same things over and over and expecting different results.
When has electing anyone as president ever changed the circumstances in your life; made it better? I can say, “Never.” I made my own money and just want government to get out of my way. But the people who elected Obama are not of that mind. They actually think it will be for change. We’ll see, and I will say, “I told you so.” when it’s business as usual.
Higher taxes will certainly bring our economy to a halt. Rich people already have enough money to wait it out. But the poor and middle class are going to be screwed… the same ones who voted for Obama, and the same ones who expect tax relief. In the next few months we are going to show you what a mistake you have made and hope to change the tide of the 2010 elections. After 2 years of unfettered Democrats with both houses and the presidency, the country will be ripe for a great conservative leader. We’re going to need one to lead us out of the mess that is sure to follow.
If Democrats really want to help the middle class, why don’t you hear them taking about dropping the gas tax? What about that tax on your phone bill? Utility bill? No, they are talking about cutting taxes for people who already don’t pay taxes! That’s called welfare. And people went for it hook, line and stinker! We’re in for trouble now!

Tomorrow is the election. Regardless of who wins, you can say one thing. Joe the plumber is a new hero! In one small sound byte, Joe put the Obama campaign on its heels! Whether it will be enough is yet to be seen. But in a moment of not being prepared to what question he was going to get, Obama let it slip that he was going to redistribute the wealth.
And one thing Rush Limbaugh missed; if the nation is eagerly anticipating an Obama presidency, why is the stock market so erratic with him leading in all the polls??? TAXES! Capital gains and income taxes. Once Bush tax cuts expire in 2010, everybody’s taxes go up. Stay tuned. There will be a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth!
