Over the last four years Americans have had to endure an tiresome, incessant tirade from Obama, the various stripes of Leftists, and the jabbering hordes of bottom-feeders and subhuman filth that exist solely because our laws force us to be hosts for their parasitism.
Most of these screeds have centered on how our domestic enemies are just asking the successful and productive to “their fair share.”
Their whole mantra, however, is nothing but a lie and Dr. Thomas Sowell sums it up with his usual clarity:
No previous administration in the entire history of the nation ever finished the year with a trillion dollar deficit. The Obama administration has done so every single year. Yet political and media discussions of the financial crisis have been focused overwhelmingly on how to get more tax revenue to pay for past and future spending.
The very catchwords and phrases used by the Obama administration betray how phony this all is. For example, “We are just asking the rich to pay a little more.”
This is an insult to our intelligence. The government doesn’t “ask” anybody to pay anything. It orders you to pay the taxes they impose and you can go to prison if you don’t.
– Dr. Thomas Sowell
Our domestic enemies are not asking for the well-to-do to pay “their fair share.” They’re asking people to punish anyone who blocks their attempt to punish the upper financial echelons of our country by confiscating and redistributing their wealth to those that the Liberals and Progressives find more deserving.
This is all about the politics of class- and race warfare and nothing whatsoever about economics. Even if all credible economists are wrong – doubtful but not nearly an impossibility – and businesses and jobs aren’t negatively impacted by these tax hikes, the resulting revenue would pay for the federal government’s operations for a mere two weeks.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. We are at war and need to comport ourselves as such.
