WAKE UP, AMERICA!! We are NOT going to get out of this mess
by throwing another "Tea Party". Hell, the original tea party is nothing more nor less than re-written history with a far-right-wing slant. It was never about higher taxes-- the British government had just lowered the tea tax to the lowest it had ever been-- it was about lack of representation: taxation (no matter how minimal) WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!! Of course, with the supreme court foisting Bush on us (TWICE), we no longer have representation-- if we ever did. And once again, the taxes are lower than they have been in a generation. And THAT'S why we are in the mess we are in. It's called DEBT. And your kids, and grandkids (and theirs) will be paying off the debt forever. Thanks to the tax cuts for the rich. But you elected them.
You obviously don't know squat about what the Tea Party is about! Before you spew ignorant BS, educate yourself on what the Tea Party stands for. Constitutional Rights! You ignorant F'K' don't even know how much of your Constitutional Rights you've already lost! You ignorant F'K' don't even know if your Constitutional Rights are even important to you anymore! You ignorant F'K' are the same ignorant F'Ks' that don't know squat about history and your nation! So blow you Tea Party all about taxes up your azz and educate yourself because you'll need it in the future!
these are lies the tax burden is threw the roof now because of taxation of everything from cable tv to phone to cars to gas and cigarettes dont let them fool you with bull shit statistics about property taxes and income taxes they make it up with other taxes and with stealing from social security which was paying for itself by the people until they started taking money out of the program for other governmnet things they are now lying when they say we pay less taxes than we did in 1958 they arent telling the truth there are so many things they tax now that they didnt back then think about it . LOOK AT ALL YOUR UTITLITY BILLS AND OTHER BILLS LOOK AT THE FED CHARGES ON YOUR PHONE BILL UTITLITY BILL AND CABLE AND LOOK AT THE GAS TAX AND TAX ON CIGS AND BEER BY THE GOVERNMENT.
The supply side idea--which is that tax cuts have such a positive effect on the economy that one need not worry about paying for them with spending cuts--persists in spite of no actual evidence in its favor.
In 1993, after the Clinton administration had pushed through an increase in taxes on upper-income families, the very same people who persuaded BobDole to run on a tax-cut program were very sure about what would result.
Newt Gingrich confidently predicted a severe recession. Articles in Forbes magazine urged readers to get out of the stock market to avoid the inevitable crash. The Wall Street Journal editorial page had no doubts that the tax increase would shaprly increase the deficit instead of reducing it.
Result - the deficit was reduced to zero and the U.S. enjoyed the greatest economic boom in history. Unfortunately the boom ended with Bush tax cuts in 2001.
There is a major problem when 50% of individuals do not pay or contribute to tax base. Everyone uses same hospitals, roads, fire depts, etc. But for some reason we are stuck on the notion that since some people have more money, they should be my share.
Where are the days of work your A$$ off or die in the gutter? Somehow that motivation always seemed to work pretty well. Entitlements have killed the once thriving free spririt of this Country.
