It would appear that those who have questioned the patriotism of the Democrats have some apologizing to do. Through their own myopic eyes and through the words of Joe Biden the liberals are patriotic. As shocking as this may seem the Democrats and Biden in particular, believe that it is patriotic to pay taxes. Its not as thought the liberals themselves pay taxes, they express their version of patriotism vicariously through the paychecks of others. The left experiences their exhilarating rush of patriotism as they infringe upon and extort the disposable income of the rest of us.
The problem that invariably rears its ugly little head whenever the liberals get around to talking about taxes, is the malleability of the parameters that they humorously set and when they set them. You will note that there are vast differences between the times and the amounts that they are asking for when they are begging for your vote and the times and the amounts when they have won elected office. The liberals always talk about the “magical $250,000 plateau” when it comes to the taxes that they wish to steal. Clinton himself started at that lofty figure only to drop it to the lowest six figures within days and George Stephanopoulos himself lowered the number to $25,000. At $25,000, the Democrats literally want everyone to be liberally patriotic..
This unique view of patriotism didn’t start with the team of O’Carter/Lieden. For example, let’s take a gander at the “Clinton Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act” of 1993. The Clinton plan placed a 39.6 per cent tax upon individuals, with a business rate of 35 per cent. Again, the liberals place the cross hairs of higher taxation upon the middle class. The Act also raised taxes upon transportation fuels (+ 4.3 cents) and the taxes upon Social Security benefits were increased. By the way, during the eight years of “Clintonomics”, Oval Office orgies and indictments, he and his motley crew did absolutely nothing to stave off the impending collapse of the Social Security system. This was just some of the handiwork of the last liberal necromancer to disgrace the Oval Office.
Biden said, “It’s time to be patriotic.. time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.” It’s safe to say that his symbolic figurehead at the top of the ticket is not responsible for this “rut” that the wispy haired vice presidential nominee speaks of. With only 143 days of “experience” in the Senate and hundreds of cowardly “present” votes under his belt, the blame for this “rut” lies elsewhere. A good place to start would be the guy with 35 years of senatorial experience in non-productivity and destruction who was personally selected as his running mate/chaperone.
Just exactly what would BHO/JFK like to do when he assumes office? Obama would like to start with a 28 per cent tax on all home sales. ALL home sales. The Socialist Sevengali would like to seize a 39.6 per cent dividend tax. John McCain would prefer to keep things at the currently established 15 percent. What does that mean to you, Mister or Misses $250,000/middle class tax payer? Everything that you have earned through your investments, IRA’s, mutual funds, and retirement accounts would be knee capped to the tune of almost 40%. Does anyone have any guesses as to where this ill-gotten theft from the middle class will go?
Obama would like to go back to the “pre Bush tax cuts” days. How will that negatively impact you? If you are single and you earn (Liberal four-letter word. Belongs with “work” and “soap”..) $30,000, you will pay $3,900.00 more ($8,400.00) to the federal government than under McCain. ($4,500.00) If you are married and you earn $60,000, under the “Obama Malaise” you will forfeit $16,800, which is $5,800 more the “tax and spenders” than under McCain. ($9,000.) That is only the beginning of their fervent felonious faux “patriotism”. Realistically, it will only get worse once they assume the mantle of power with a Democratic House and Senate already in place..
Under the Obama “terminal tax tomfoolery”, you can expect to see higher or new taxes devoted to gasoline, “natural resource consumption”, (heating gas, water, electricity, etc..), retirement accounts and what ever or how ever many taxes would be necessary to bring “Hillary Care” off of the liberal life support system and into everyone’s life as only socialized medicine can do. You will also see the resurrection of the inheritance tax that will undoubtedly cause many to lose the inheritances that are rightfully theirs.
Biden says that we should, “be part of the deal…” What “deal”? Is he talking about the “New Deal”? Perfect. The “New Deal” ushered in the idea of “liberal government as God” which is the fulcrum of today’s progressive oligarchies and dictatorships. Mind you, those were the days when “southern conservative” Democrats actually existed, and they believed in balanced budgets and they opposed new taxes. These days, “conservative” and “Democrat” appear contiguously within a sentence or a statement about as often as “Franken” and “sane”..
Biden’s comment also shows that the left has no comprehension of what patriotism is. Biden is apparently of the belief that the shared sacrifice Socialism of the “New Deal”, the involuntary acquisition of the remuneration of others, the typical mandatory ham fisted altruism of the left, is patriotic. The enlightened progressives of the left believe that those who prefer to pay their bills themselves should bankroll their bedazzling balm of benevolence. They somehow see a perverted “patriotism” in destroying and perpetuating the lowest class while trying their best to force the middle class to finance their follies.
It is imperative that we keep this presidential race in its proper perspective. These are the Democrats that we are talking about here. The Democrats are to taxes as Michael Moore is to Ding Dongs. Neither can get enough of what it is that they are addicted to. I will even quote Obama himself from just a few weeks ago as he spoke in Terra Haute, Indiana: “I mean come on, they must think you’re stupid..” To think that the party of the left WILL NOT raise any and all taxes if they are given the opportunity, taxes that will inordinately punish and penalize the middle class, is truly the definition of “stupid”.
If this is patriotism, then you may consider me a conservative anarchist.
