you remember when President George H. W. Bush said, "Read my lips. No new
taxes."?Well the people voting for him in 1992 did and he was beat out for
a second term by Mr. Promiscuous himself, President Clinton. Though he promised
not to raise taxes, the inevitable occurred. That in association with a
declining economy brought the end to his career in the White House.
Isn't it amazing how history repeats
itself. Now 20 years later we are in the exact same position. When Obama took
over he promised us Americans the world, moon, stars and even the kitchen sink.
However, most importantly, he promised not to raise taxes. Now with the Supreme
Court's ruling he not only is raising taxes but doing so on the people who need
the money most. The new 2,500 dollar tax will be issued to any American without
Healthcare. There will be no excuses and failure to pain will put you into
jail- reminiscent of the old debtor's prison.
Now, if you don't have Healthcare and
don't pay the 4-figure tax-hike, the US government considers you a crook or
worse yet a tax evader. You become no better than the drug sellers, robbers or
other thieves in the judicial system. Heaven forbid you lose your job and
healthcare. What happens next? Well, you better have 2,500 dollars saved up for
yourself or you're now considered a wanted man by the Feds.
Is this what our country has come to?
Now with the government's incompetent hands in everything we are no better off.
In fact, the more the government sticks its nose into our business, the worse
things become. Because of the insecurity this law places on the private sector,
no one wants to hire and if they do, it's only for part time work. What the
government has done is essentially placed a stranglehold over our entire
economy with one law. It's almost incomprehensible that the greatest country in
the world would allow such a heinous act against its citizens be perpetrated.
Plus, Obama is a liar. He lied that he
was not going to raise taxes. He lied that he was going to decrease the
deficit. He lied he was going to close Gitmo, and the list could go on. Where's
the media in all of this? When President Bush raised taxes they were over him
like a fly to crap. They played the sound bite of him saying, "Read my
lips. No new taxes." ad nauseum. It was almost like a broken record. Plus,
the media mocked Vice-President Quayle relentlessly about his misspelling of potato. Yet, both Obama and
Vice-President Biden can talk like complete idiots and get away with it. It's
like the media gives them a Get Out Of
Jail Free card at all times. No matter how badly they run the country, how
much debt they accrue, how many bad decisions they make, how poorly the economy
is doing or how dumb they look, the media turns a blind eye.
Also, relating back to the 1992
election is that the economy was in decline at that time and it was difficult
to find a job. However, when you compare 1992 to now it seems like back then
the economy was entering a golden age. Just look at things now compared to back
then. The economy is much worse. We are less respected around the world. Our
military was better appreciated and funded by the president. We were safer and
things were just better.
Hopefully, Americans do not have
amnesia and look through Obama's mindless rhetoric and remember how disastrous
the last 4 years have been. We are at a critical point in our country. Just
think of what 4 more years of Obama means. I can tell you one thing. If he
stays in office, I better learn Chinese because they'll own us by 2016.
