If the Internet becomes a public utility, you’ll pay more. Here’s why.

 

when your country is telling you no

Obama –  instead of banning are freedom, rights and taking our money,why don’t you just try leaving us the hell alone & see how that works out?

Obama’s Federal Communications Commission is in the middle of a high-stakes decision that could raise taxes for close to 90 percent of Americans. The commission is considering whether to reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service and, in doing so, Washington would trigger new taxes and fees at the state and local level.

The agency would like to make Internet service a public utility, placing broadband under Title II regulation of the Communications Act of 1934. This move would make broadband subject to New Deal-era regulation, and have significant consequences for U.S. taxpayers.

Under this decision to reclassify broadband, Americans would face a host of new state and local taxes and fees that apply to public utilities. These new levies, according to the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI), would total $15 billion annually. On average, consumers would pay an additional $67 for landline broadband, and $72 for mobile broadband each year, according to PPI’s calculations, with charges varying from state to state.

Proponents of broadband reclassification, including the left-of-center organization Free Press, claim that it would not result in higher taxes or fees. The recently extended Internet Tax Freedom Act, they assert, prohibits state and local taxation of Internet service. This is incorrect, however. The act does not apply to telecom-related fees.

Free Press and other broadband reclassification proponents also say the new taxes and fees can be prevented if the FCC designates broadband as an interstate service. A Progressive Policy Institute report explains why this also is incorrect:

“When the Commission previously considered the jurisdiction of Internet traffic, it determined that such traffic was ‘largely interstate,’ but ‘jurisdictionally mixed.’ States routinely tax jurisdictionally mixed services that are classified as ‘interstate’ for purposes of regulation. For example, wireless services may not be regulated by state public utility commissions, but they are subject to a host of state and local taxes and fees. In several states, interstate wireless revenues are subject to taxation.”

Late last year, President Barack Obama waded into this contentious debate. He called for the Internet to be treated like a public utility. Critics of Obama’s position point out this would reduce investment in infrastructure and lead to inferior service for consumers. Reclassifying broadband as a telecommunications service would also stifle innovation and restrict the openness of the Internet.

obama silly Change???

The telecommunications industry has invested more than $1.2 trillion on broadband infrastructure since 1996. As a result, roughly 87 percent of Americans have access to broadband. It would be foolish for government to discourage the significant investment required to maintain, expand and improve this infrastructure by subjecting broadband to circa 1930s regulation. Subjecting Internet service providers to such onerous rules would depress innovation and penalize Web users.

Not only would higher taxes and fees leave individuals, families, and employers with less disposable income, a wealth of research indicates it would be bad for the economy.

John Hood, former president of the John Locke Foundation, found that keeping state and local tax and regulatory burdens as low as possible fosters economic growth, when he analyzed 681 peer-reviewed academic journal articles going back to 1990.

“Most studies find,” Hood stated, “that lower levels of taxes and spending, less-intrusive regulation…correlate with stronger economic performance.”

Tax Foundation economist William McBride reviewed academic literature going back three decades and found, “While there are a variety of methods and data sources, the results consistently point to significant negative effects of taxes on economic growth even after controlling for various other factors such as government spending, business cycle conditions and monetary policy.”

In McBride’s survey of 26 studies, dating to 1983, he found “all but three of those studies, and every study in the last 15 years, find a negative effect of taxes on growth.”

The Federal Communications Commission is expected to make its decision early this year. After the more than 20 tax increases signed into law during Obama’s six years in office, the last thing American taxpayers need is a gusher of new taxes and fees triggered by bureaucrats in Washington.

really you still trust the government

 “The world is a dangerous place to live ….. not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”  Albert Einstein

That’s right.  It’s over.  Their guns are bigger.  They control all the money.  They control the energy.  They control the land.  They control the food and they control the water.  Soon they will control our health care, down to the last detail on our electronic health care records being stored in a giant computer in Washington DC, from which they can determine if we are worthy of receiving health care.  The older we get, the less worthy we become.

large group we wont take it any more

Just like the guy standing on the beach witnessing in horror, the onrushing tsunami wave and has no place to run, we might just as well bend over and kiss our behinds goodbye.  Freedom and liberty are gone.  The constitution and bill of rights are just so much toilet paper and American sovereignty is but a fading memory of a bunch of dead guys who thought they could create individual liberty and have it last.   This didn’t happen overnight, you know.  It’s been coming on for about a hundred to a hundred and twenty years.  First, the civil war gave us the 14th Amendment,

immigrants crossing border  we now let illegal aliens become U. S. Citizens, thus creating a magnet for millions more to come.

Then a cadre of real smart guys from Harvard around the 1880s (the Dean and Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes) decided that we shouldn’t be bothered by the strict interpretation of the U. S. Constitution, we need to use court precedence’s to guide our adjudication of laws and legislation, court precedence’s that reflect the changing social nature of our society.  (Socialism by any other name)  They called this new paradigm of legal jurisprudence, Positivism.  A collective shudder must have rattled the souls of the Founding Fathers and a deep groan could be heard emanating from their graves.  Cracks started forming in our Constitution.smiley-angry019

Then came the first dictator of America and Constitution hater, President Woodrow Wilson, who did everything in his power to open the cracks in the Constitution even wider, by forming the League of Corrupt Nations, presiding over the 16th Amendment and the creation of the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service, which legalized taxes on Americans that were never authorized by the Constitution.  The government, with this new found source of revenue, began to grow and grow and gain immense power.

Second dictator of America, FDR,

Constitutional  Corruption didn’t stop with President Wilson. The second dictator of America, FDR, used a crow bar to pry the cracks in our Constitution so far that it became literally unrecognizable.  He did it by using the emergency of the Great Depression as his rationale to fundamentally transform America.  The opposition to FDR was fierce, but the great savior and orator convinced the weak among us (voters), that the only answer to this unprecedented and worsening crisis had to come at the expense of their freedom and liberty.  In the fog of our pending destruction of the 1930s, unions, socialists, Nazis, communists and the Technocrats all rose in prominence to “feed” the hungry souls of the weak and troubled within our ranks.  Many were forever converted, and the cracks in the Constitution got wider still.

The slow, deadly destruction of American freedom has carried us to this day of Obama, who is trying to repeat, in spades, what FDR did,

 Fundamentally transforming America into a utopian socialist society, once again exploiting the weak among us and using the strategy of class warfare to dupe the naive into supporting this constitutional treason.

Johnson and Carter took us deeper into the abyss of socialism and the weakening of American power in the world.  Obama, Pelosi and Reid are attempting to tip America over the edge from which there will be no return and they are on the verge of completing the job …… if they get their way.

The fact is, the American people, the so-called Consent of the Governed, went to sleep for a hundred years and have allowed what we face today to happen.  If there is anyone to blame, we can only blame ourselves.  We had the mechanisms to stop these traitors from tearing the fabric of freedom asunder, but we abandoned our roots of freedom, obtained at great sacrifice, in favor of comfort and security.  We couldn’t be bothered.

Still, there are indications that the Obamas in America have awakened a sleeping giant and have run headlong into a center-right brick wall.  Some have said that the progressives are beginning to unravel.  As evidence of their unraveling, attacks on conservatives grow by the day.  They fear us, and they worry we might be successful in ruining their diabolical plans for America.  They just might be right, but that depends entirely on the level of conservative commitment to defend freedom.

We are in a war for the very survival of individual liberty and for the last 100 years, we have been losing that war. History is on the ragged edge of repeating itself, once again. It is evident that serfs they want us to be and serfs we will become …… unless tens of millions of Americans have the b…..lls to stop them, with whatever it takes. If we are divided and fragmented in our prosecution of this war, we most surely will lose. But losing is not an option if freedom and liberty are to be preserved for present and future generations.

McClatchy-Marist Poll: American dream seen as out of reach

By David Lightman
McClatchy Washington BureauFebruary 13, 2014 Updated 23 hours ago

US NEWS BLACKFRIDAY 8 LA

WASHINGTON — Racing into a new century in which many of the old rules don’t seem to apply anymore, Americans are overwhelmingly pessimistic about their chances of achieving and sustaining the American dream, according to a new Marist-McClatchy Poll.
They see an economic system in which they have to work harder than ever to get ahead, and a political system that’s unresponsive to their needs.

Eight out of 10 Americans think it’s harder now than before, taking more effort to get ahead than it did for previous generations. Just 15 percent think it takes the same work as it did before, and a scant 5 percent think it’s easier now.

And Americans don’t think it will get better soon, with 78 percent thinking it also will be harder for the next generation to get ahead.

The findings underscore the landscape at a time when the economy and the country are being fundamentally changed by waves of globalization and new technology, and as Americans struggle to see a better path forward and their politicians grapple over how to help.

President Barack Obama speaks frequently about pushes for a higher minimum wage and health care subsidies, as well as programs to help people find new skills, at the same time he pushes free trade, which is to blame for an exodus of jobs to lower-paying foreign factories.
Looking at work, Americans think by 75-22 percent that U.S. corporations make stockholders their top priority, over their employees.

Looking at their own lives, most people consider themselves middle class. Eighty-six percent of those polled identified themselves that way, with 14 percent calling themselves upper middle class, 50 percent saying middle class and 22 percent saying lower middle class.

Most think the middle class is hurt most by government policies. Fifty-five percent think the middle class is most likely to be left behind by those actions, while another 40 percent said the poor would be hurt the most.

The findings come as the nation and the federal government struggle with Obama”s Ideology of Redistribution from the Middleclass to third world countries.

Officially, the deep recession that began in December 2007 has been over since mid-2009,  smiley-laughing001

Seventy-two percent of those who earn less than $50,000 a year felt that way, and 66 percent of those who earn more agreed. So did 63 percent of 18- to 29-year olds, and 71 percent of those 60 and older.

 obama’s economy:

What’s happening here?

“To fix the unemployment rate, a government basically has two big options: create jobs, or change the definition of what unemployment is.

What did our government do?
You guessed it. They changed the way unemployment rate is calculated…and redefined unemployment as “number of Americans receiving unemployment benefits”.Stopped receiving benefits?

It doesn’t matter that you haven’t had a job since Clinton..in the state’s eyes, you’re NOT unemployed. But when you use way the government calculated unemployment rates before the 1990s, the shocking rate is 24%… far more than during the Great Depression.
There are more than 101 million working-aged Americans unemployed. That’s the entire population of Texas, California, New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania the 6 most populous states here in the US – combined.

People who cannot contribute to the economy, who don’t have enough money to buy goods, and who, in a crisis, will probably be the first ones to flood the streets.
Count the rest of the population who is either too young or too old to work…and you’ll be shocked to discover that

This means that the average American worker has to carry 4 people on his back and even this number is bound to grow.”
The average American family makes $51,017 a year and $8,500 of it…or 17% goes to healthcare.
According to data from the U.S. Government’s very own healthcare reporting bureau, healthcare costs will almost double under Obamacare.

1988 Spending Per Family $2,000

2013 $8,500 Healthcare Spending Per Family

2014 Healthcare Spending Per Family $15,950

But under Obamacare, costs will double according to data from the U.S. Government’s very own healthcare reporting bureau.

But here’s the kicker:
According to Foxnews, 76% of American families ALREADY live paycheck to paycheck. For them, adding even $100 to monthly costs would be disastrous.
Under Obamacare, yearly costs would go up an aditional $7450!

The government gets its funding from working class taxpayers but when those who pay taxes can’t even pay their own bills the government will collapse under its own weight.

The government will collapse under its own weight. The government also won’t be able to get money it needs from taxing businesses because 90% of all companies in the US are dependent on selling goods to the working class.

And when the backbone of the US economy vanishes into thin air you’ll see the greatest string of corporate bankruptcies in the United States.

As banks close down, your life savings will evaporate. But the most dangerous part of this is that this collapse will happen out of the blue and many Americans will be caught unaware. In a day or two…they’ll realize the serious implications.

Barack Obama personally ordered the “stand-down” that caused the deaths of four Americans

hillary in front of caskets lying       Forty days before the election, Obama could not afford for al Qaeda to be resurrected from their premature grave and attack a US embassy. Afraid of scores of US casualties in an Obama-declared “normalcy zone” in the Mideast, Obama sent in two drones to monitor what happened—not to help consulate personnel, but to contain the problem—and the political blowback.

by Danielle Pletka: of the American Enterprise Institute

The media and the White House, suggested that it was confusion in chaos because of so many attacks (i.e., violent protests) in so many different places in the Muslim world that led to the muddling of facts about what happened where and when.

Not so according to Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute whose investigation revealed “…that officials from [Obama] on down were intentionally and falsely insisting the the 9/11/12 attack [in Benghazi] was not an act of terrorism is screamingly obvious.

Pletka was right although it would be about three weeks that a statement by the new US Army commander of Africom, Lt. Gen. David Rodriquez (when he relieved his predecessor, four star general Carter F. Ham), revealed that **Barack Obama personally ordered the “stand-down” that caused the deaths of four Americans.

Before he was relieved of his command on Sept. 11, 2012, Gen. Carter Ham led a very undistinguished, political-military career—which is likely why Barack Obama appointed him to head Africom. Gen. Ham proved that even a political soldier can be a patriot. He put his career on the line at a time when integrity was needed. Too bad he was not able to deploy his ready-response team to save two former Seals who also put their lives on the line that night—and lost them.

It was in August when Stevens first notified Washington of attempts to breach the consulate perimeter. The Pentagon launched two drones to patrol the skies over the consulate. One drone, although the White House has denied it, was armed with missiles. The other was armed with a video camera that allowed the DoD, the CIA and the White House Situation Room to have a real time video stream of what was happening in the compound at Benghazi.

Between Aug. 27 and Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, National Intelligence Adviser James Clapper and, of course Barack Obama received over 230 warnings from Benghazi before the attack on September 11. A real president would have taken the warnings from one of his Ambassadors seriouslyparticularly when that warning was preceded with 229 others…and holes in the embassy wall in which one was big enough to install a Mickey D drive-through in it.

blood on their hands benghazi

And, no real president would have downgraded the security of a compound on US soil in a very hostile Muslim nation to “save a few extra taxpayer bucks” for his green energy friends.

Someone in the Pentagon or the CIA took the threats seriously enough to schedule the drone to flyovers of the Benghazi compound at regular intervals. The DOD didn’t send the Marines that the emails sent by Stevens requested. Nor did the CIA—which was specifically told to “stand down” by the White House Situation Room. When the CIA was told to stand down Woods and Doherty told the CIA to screw itself and went to Benghazi.

In a September 2 email to Secretary Clinton, Stevens described a meeting he had with Benghazi’s Supreme Security Commander. In the cable, Stevens expressed concerns that Libyan police and security forces were too weak to keep the country secure. In that email Stevens said his fears were based on the growing strength of the Abu Salim Brigade in Dema—a small village just outside of Benghazi

Stevens suspected that the Abu Salim Brigade, supported by al Qaeda and possibly aided by Iran, would ultimately overthrow the provisional Libyan government. No one in Washington, least of all Barack Obama, listened to him.

Obama was engaged in his own personal war to get elected, which of course was more far more important to him at the moment than the lives of the State Dept. personnel in Benghazi.

Since Obama only attended about 1/3 of his daily security briefings during his first term, its likely that prior to the actual Sept. 11 attack on the Benghazi compound, he may well have been completely unaware of the fact that Libyan Security forces armed only with mace, billy clubs and whistles were the only thing standing between Ambassador Stevens, his small staff and Islamist terrorists armed with rocket launchers, mortars, hand grenades and AK-47s. The official duty of the Libyan security team was described as “traffic control.” (Since the death of his ambassador, Obama now has photo ops regularly in the White House Situation Room.)

After Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made the following statement about not deploying troops without the intel that says its a good idea, career military people began talking. What they had to say suggests someone in Washington needs to be fired, and someone else needs to be impeached. The quote attributed to Panetta was: “…the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on, without having some real-time information about taking place. And, as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

However, when Gen. Carter Ham, head of Africom, received the same emails that Panetta, Clinton and Obama received, he assembled a rapid response unit and informed Panetta he was ready to go. Ham was ordered to stand down.

He told Panetta to screw himself, telling the Secretary that he was sending his men in. Less than one minute later Lt. Gen. David Rodriquez told Ham—his boss—he had just been relieved of his command because he refused to obey a direct order from the Commander-in-Chief.

Obama then appointed Rodriguez as the new head of Africom. Now you know precisely who gave the order to “stand down” that resulted in the sacrificial death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, IT Specialist Sean Smith and former Navy Seals Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods for “political points.” (It is my personal opinion that any US citizen who votes for Barack Obama needs to forever refrain from ever again referring to themselves as someone who is even remotely patriotic.)

(Note: the Obama Administration also lied when it said that Doherty and Woods were assigned to personally protect Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi. That was a blatant fabrication. The former Seals, attached to the CIA, refused the White House order to “stand down.” They went to the Consulate and defended the mission with their lives. While neither man was on active duty in the US Navy at the time, both men deserve the US Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery above and beyond the call of duty.

the seals

Before believing the blatant donkey kong excreted from both sides of Obama‘s mouth whenever he speaks, pay attention to the stream of emails from Stevens in Benghazi and the CIA in Tripoli sent repeatedly to the State Department,

The White House, the Pentagon and the CIA which confirm that on September 11, 2012 as the terrorist strike on the US Consulate began, the White House Situation Room, the Secretary of State, the CIA, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs and the Director of the CIA—and, for what he’s worth, Obama‘s Director of National Intelligence, retired USAF Lt. Gen. James Clapper who, in the end, is going to be expected to fall on his is Air Force Academy saber for Obama on this one, probably just before the Election as more Americans realize it was Obama himself who gave the “stand down” order. Clearly, the Benghazi mess is not going to go away anytime soon—particularly since the Obama Administration and the Democratic leadership has assured the media that this issue is much too serious to “rush through” before the election.

Win or loss, you can bet that on Nov. 7, the Benghazi affair will be protected by Executive Privilege. Hearings in the House—and in the Senate if the GOP picks up enough seats to regain control—will once again be stonewalled by the most “transparent Administration in the history of the United States” (Obama‘s words).

You can take that observation to the bank because there has been no bipartisan cooperation in the “cause and effect” assessments and decisions emanating from the Obama Administration. Obama, like Franklin D. Roosevelt before him, sees himself as a one-man executive, legislative and judicial entity who, by Executive degree, can empower himself with the authority of a king who answers to no one.

As we can see from the past four years, when you’re a community organizer with no real corporate or senior level executive government management experience, and when your key advisers—including your Attorney General and Solicitor General—see no evil in your political sins, you will have the trappings of absolute power. T

The American people have forgotten a time-honored adage which they very seriously need to remember. The only difference between a rut in the road of progress and an economic mass grave is the size and shape of the hole. When you can no longer patch the economic hole with money, someone in a black shroud holding a large, sharp scythe will be speaking the eulogy over this nation.

Politicians Putting The Squeeze On The Elderly and Middle Class

206165_453413278032501_108773658_n

As the growth of tax revenue has slowed, states have faced tensions over whether to raise taxes or cut spending to balance their budgets as required by law.

“Rising income inequality is not just a social issue,” said Gabriel Petek, the S&P credit analyst who wrote A report for msn money.. “It presents a very significant set of challenges for the policymakers.”

The Blood Sucking Politicians at the Local Level  are blaming it on income inequality. Never mentioning it was created by Politicians and our Federal Government.  Now they want more taxes which will again decimate the Elderly and middle class.

Stagnant pay for  people has compounded the pressure on states to preserve funding for education highways and social programs.

 Their investments in education and infrastructure ??   have also fueled economic growth. ?? What!  Yet we are told they’re at risk without a strong flow of tax revenue.?? Local Governments have been given our Tax Dollars for infrastructure for 40 years or more and they have spent it on social programs to help them stay elected.

We already pay more than any country in the world for education with zero results.  And how about Obamas ,Bush, Bill Clinton and Hillary’s  Open Border policy creating more mouths to educate, house, cloth, and feed. And guess who pays! You the voter and, the old time Democrats who they have convinced must pay more tax’s to save your Social Security. Already most young people are not aware you paid into Social Security during a life time of hard work sometime at two jobs.

Hillary is the war on women says kathleen wiley  Hillary is the “War on Woman”

In Florida,  Progressive  Democrats frighten Seniors into obeying their voting instructions. And spent millions running a proven fool Charlie Christ against A successful Governor.

A List of Liberal Lies and the Truth
1. Count Every Vote– This was the mantra of the Al Gore campaign after the 2000 presidential election, when they were hand counting votes in 3 highly Democratic counties, while at the same time trying to disqualify military votes. In effect they were trying to change the rules of the election after the election had taken place, which violated federal election law. A liberal Florida Supreme Court ruled in the favor of the Gore Campaign until the U.S. Supreme Court put a stop to it. To this very day, liberals actually believe George Bush stole the election.

2. There is a vast right wing conspiracy- There is a far right wing in the Republican Party, but it is a small fringe element. However, there is a far left wing in this country and it is a large part of the main stream of the Democratic party. Remember when Hillary Clinton went on the Today Show and responded to the allegation of an affair between her husband (President Clinton) and an intern (Monica Lewinsky) as untrue and blamed it on a Right Wing Conspiracy? Over the past ten years Tom Daschle, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Mario Cuomo, Richard Gephardt and Jesse Jackson have been the loudest and most influential voices in the Democratic party. Are any of these people Moderates? Also please note, there is a liberal bias in the media. You might make the argument that there is a vast left wing conspiracy.

Hillary more of the same

3. This is a tax break for the rich- This is class warfare at it’s finest. If a person earning $40,000 a year gets a 10% tax reduction and a person earning $1,000,000 per year gets a 1% tax reduction- the person earning $1,000,000 will get a much greater tax break. Tom Daschle and Richard Gephardt once stood next to a car in front of the Capital Building holding up a muffler. They made a statement that a proposed George Bush tax cut would allow the rich to buy a new car and the average American to buy a muffler. This is a strategy Democrats use on every Republican proposed tax cut. They stop everyone from getting a reduction in their taxes by using class warfare. Please note, tax reductions are not an entitlement program.

4. There is no liberal bias in the media- For close to 50 years the news in America was controlled by ABC, NBC and CBS. In the last 20 years CNN came on to the scene. This is pretty much comparable to the BBC in Europe and AL Jazzera in the Arab world today. It was in the last 6 years when Fox News and other cable news networks were born to give a more balanced approach to news analysis. However, if you look at the major networks today, they are still run by the left. . In print media there is the Los Angeles Times in California, The New York Times in New York and The Atlanta Journal Constitution in Georgia. These have been the major newspapers in our most populous cities for many years and their reporting has a liberal bias.

5. Republicans want to cut school lunch programs- This was the attack leveled by Democrats against the Republicans during a budget battle in 1995. Democrats proposed a double digit increase in funding for school lunch programs, while Republican proposed a more modest increase. To put this in perspective, you must ask this question. How many people get a double digit increase in their pay each year? Democrats called the Republican proposal a cut and charged they wanted to starve children, because the proposal was less than what Democrats proposed. Please note, the Republican proposal called for an increase in funding. The media printed the story, never challenging it, even though it was not true. This became famous for when does an increase become a cut- only in Washington DC.

6. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky- We all know the truth here. There is nothing to be added- except that it was not a vast right wing conspiracy.

7. Republicans are mean spirited and want to throw the poor out on the street- This was a charge leveled by Democrats against Republicans when they proposed time limits for receiving welfare. Polls show that the majority of Americans believe in time restrictions for welfare recipients. Republicans know that to escape poverty it takes education, hard work and discipline. The greatness of this country rests in its freedom and that within one generation a person can rise from poverty to obtain great wealth. Allowing endless dependency on an entitlement program has trapped many in poverty. Why would Democrats want to keep anyone dependent on an entitlement program like welfare?      How many people on welfare vote Republican?  shocked

8. I support the military- It has been well documented that when it comes to voting for military funding- liberals would much rather spend money on social programs. First you must understand their rational. Approximately 10% of the population in the United States is poor, which is about 30 million Americans. There are approximately one million Americans serving in the military. If only 1 in 5 of the poor vote, that equals about six million votes as compared to one million votes from the military. There are two relevant questions here. What percent of the poor vote Republican? How close was the 2000 Presidential Election? This leads directly to the answer of why would liberals rather appropriate money to social programs than to the defense of our country. Please note, the defense of our country is a primary, if not the primary responsibility of our government. If we don’t protect the country, we may not have a country or our freedom.

9. Privatizing social security is risky. Contribute $300 a month to Social Security and you may get $1,800 a month when you retire. Sound like a good deal? There was a story about Dick Gephardt’s mother living on Social Security and having numerous checks she had written returned for insufficient funds. Gephardt politicized the event by stating that this was an example of why Social Security should not be privatized, because if it were not for Social Security his mother would have been much worse off.

Please note that the S & P 500 has returned more than 10% over it’s lifetime. Therefore- if you invested $300 a month in an S & P 500 mutual fund for 40 years at the end of that time (enter these numbers into any compound interest calculator) you would have approximately 2 million dollars (Please note that these are conservative numbers). This means you could withdraw almost $200,000 or 10 percent a year and never exhaust your money. Break that down and it is $20, 000 a month. Social Security does not sound so good any longer.

Please be advised that the key to obtaining wealth is systematically investing for the long term. There is no quick sure fire scheme to getting rich. If Gephardt’s mother had been investing in mutual funds her entire life instead of Social Security- she would have been much better off at the present. Also, please be advised that privatizing Social Security helps the poor the more than anyone. The rich invest money in 401K plans. The poor, the clerk at a convenience store or a customer service representative doesn’t have excess funds to invest and so their only investment vehicle is Social Security.

10. Trickle down economics does not work– Money in the hands of people stimulates the economy, whether they are rich or poor. The problem- how to you put money in the hands of the poor? Transfer of more wealth from the rich to the poor each year? This would only create greater dependency on entitlements and give lessen the incentive to achieve. Give the poor greater tax cuts? You can only cut the taxes for the poor by so much, because they don’t pay much in taxes.

When Tom Daschle said that the result of a proposed Bush tax cut would mean that a rich person would be able to buy a new car, without realizing it, he proved the theory of Trickle Down Economics. The person selling that car would generate income that he would otherwise not have had. Please note that if that person sells enough cars, he will gain wealth. If tax rates in this county were at 75% what would happen to the economy? The answer is that no one would have money to spend on anything except housing and food. The result would be that businesses everywhere would fail, because no one would have money to buy clothes, electronics, entertainment, repairs for their homes or cars, go on vacation….. If they did buy such things, they would have to go in to debt to do so. How would this help the working class or the poor? Please note the average taxpayer, pays roughly 50% of their income in taxes.

liberals are for tax hikes and against tax cuts. The only thing that helps the working class is a strong economy. It gives the average worker more freedom and more bargaining power. When the financial sector was booming from 1987 through 1989, workers were getting bonuses, overtime and stock options. When the financial sector suffered a downturn in 1990, it trickled down. There were no more bonuses, overtime, stock options and there were layoffs.

Dr. David Janda explains rationing

Dr. Janda was the keynote speaker at a congressional dinner at the Capitol Building in Washington on Friday, July 17, 2010. As he began his prepared speech, he said, “It should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on the Obamacare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: Consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.””The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care.

The plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.”

The rationing of care is implemented through the National Health Care Board according to this plan. This illustrious board ‘will approve or reject treatment based on the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment.’ Translation—if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced for of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer, dream on if you think you will get treated. Pick out your coffin. Dr. Janda’s words, not mine.

Oh—you think this could never happen? Sorry…this is the same model they use in Britain

large group we wont take it any moreToday hospitals and health care facilities are required to ask patients if they have a living will or lose government funding! The question is proposed in such a way to create pressure on patients so that they think it is something good, desirable and necessary. “Do you know that you have a right in the state of Minnesota to possess a living will??        smiley-shocked028
