When the Democrats are not busy trying to impeach the most successful president in the history of our country, they are trying to come up with new ways to run our country without winning an election. I said ‘run’, perhaps I should have said ‘ruin’ our country. Democrats feel that it is no longer necessary to go to the expense of winning an election. When you have a crooked president from the Obama administration, a corrupt DOJ, FBI, CIA, and Secretary of State, does it really matter if people vote? Why vote?
Democrats keep saying Hillary won the popular vote, however with all the questionable practices of the Democrats it is hard to really know. Hopefully, all the questionable practices of the 2016 election will be cleaned up and the voice of the people will be heard once again.
It is hard to hear what the Democrat’s current platform is in all their noise. It seems to be, impeach President Trump. Hard to win an election on that, considering the thin remaining patience of the American people. When the Sanders, Warrens, and all the rest say what they are going to do for the people, it is mind-boggling. We, the democrats, promise to rescind all the tax cuts President Trump has affected. We promise to get unemployment up again so all of you people used to the Democratic handouts will no longer have to work. Why work if you can be supported by the rest of the working class?
By getting all the tax cuts rescinded, we promise you we can bring you a better education and healthcare for all. We will tax the millionaires and billionaires out of existence the same as prior to Regan when the tax on the wealthy was over 90%. In 1955, forever ago I know, the tax rate on people making over $3.43M/year was 91%. Our government has pretty much-collected taxes in the range of 17 to 20 percent of our GDP and the rich have never paid close to 90% of their income in taxes.
Who pays these taxes? The highest income earners’ taxes have gone up continuously since the ’80s. in 1980 the top 20% of earners paid about 55% of all income taxes. Today it is just shy of 70%. I think what we can all glean from that; the democrats are basically lying when they say the rich pay no taxes or not their fair share. If not lying, they are certainly deceitful, and of course, some wealthy people do not pay their fair share.
When people like Elizabeth Warren, our favorite Indian, say she is going to make sure the wealthy will pay a percentage of their wealth each year, this is just crazy. Can you imagine Jerry Jones and Mark Cuban having to sell the Dallas Cowboys and the Mavericks just so they could pay their fair share in taxes? This is what you are talking about Elizabeth. Are you going to have the IRS walkthrough citizens’ homes and decide how much the art on their walls is worth?
I want all of you to think about how crazy some of these tax schemes put forth by the non-thinking Democrats are and could they ever have a place in reality. They do not. This nation would be broken, and it would happen in a relative hurry. Empires that needed breaking up according to Warren’s nutty tax schemes would be bought at sale prices by the Chinese. Think of that. Now our Chinese friends could put tariffs on the food we buy at the grocery store. Sounds farfetched, doesn’t it. Not really, if you stop and think about it. Anyone for some expensive Cowboy’s and Maverick’s tickets?
