Paying taxes is Patriotic? 

Congress is considering a National Sales Tax called a Value Added Tax-VAT in some circles. Forget about repealing all the income taxes already collected, they are planning to keeping the existing income tax and add a national sales tax on top of it.  How’s that for Patriotic?

Poor people who don’t make enough to make ends meet now will be forced to rely further on social services, further enhancing the debt and reliance on government.  Socialism, pure and simple.  

A commentator from the Say Anything Blog had this to say- http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/congress_considering_a_national_sales_tax/ that “Bush took 96 months to give us the largest debt in decades.  Obama took 4 months to QUADRUPLE that.”

This is the change you can believe in.  …”Everybody who understands our long-term budget problems understands we’re going to need a new source of revenue, and a VAT is an obvious candidate,” said Leonard Burman, co-director of the Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, who testified on Capitol Hill this month about his own VAT plan. “It’s common to the rest of the world, and we don’t have it.” 

I don’t have my armpits infested by the fleas of a thousand camels like some parts of the world either, but something stinks to high hell.  I understand that our economy and the world’s economy are fragile, but a VAT on top of what we already pay? Somewhere in this VAT is an angle for government subsidized healthcare, I just know it.  We are going to have to pay for the the Swine Flu Vaccine and Vaccine Stockpiles somehow, won’t we now?  Doing away with an antiquated tax code that our own Secretary of Treasury apparently couldn’t figure out is one thing, but not repealing it and expecting tax revenue on top of that is just greed and a nasty power play on the part of our elected democratic office holders.  Do they really want to be responsible for more burdens on the poor while they sit on the throne of power under the Obama reign?

You think a gallon of milk is expensive now?  A gallon of gas locally was $2.49 in Podunk USA- in the EU it is between $5-$8 per liter.  http://goeurope.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=goeurope&cdn=travel&tm=59&gps=294_333_986_501&f=10&su=p531.50.336.ip_&tt=2&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/prices.html%23Motor

I get that not everyone pays taxes and that not everyone qualifies but for those of us who do; for the government to even consider a VAT is just another nail in the coffin of capitalism.  I am tired of scraping up the change off the floor to pay for President Obama’s proposed socialistic programs and endless bailouts.  If I wanted to own a car company, I would have purchased the stock on Wall Street.  I didn’t need a President to do it for me.

Patriotism is not getting your money for nothing and your tricks for free. Best link on the topic is here-

  As seeb on Fox News.

Obama was talking to a plumber in a neighborhood, the man asked “why do want to raise my taxes? … Obama said he needed to “spread” the wealth…..

Can you spell S O C I A L I S T?  It won’t just be that plumber whose going to be bending over at work.

Tell me just why would anyone want to get back into the stock market with a Socialistic, Marxist statement like that?  So much for hard work, Obama is going to spread the wealth around for all of us.  Oh goody, where do I stand in line?  Oh that’s right- the line for the bathroom is going to be long because all the plumber’s will no longer have any incentive to work to fix the plumbing since Obama is going to be taking more of their money. 

Say goodbye to the American Dream if Obama Gets elected, we’re going to be standing in a lot of shit.
