I write this column, when we are days away from what "politicians" and "pundits" are calling the
"Fiscal Cliff", that is on January 1, 2013, a series of spending cuts and tax
increases will automatically be implemented that will have devastating impacts on
working class Americans.
Translation, everyday "Tax-Paying" Americans will have to
pay for the political prostitution of BOTH Republicans and Democrats who have sold
out their respective Oaths of Office and the public interest in favor of Special
For years politicians have said one thing at election time, then gone to
Washington D.C and showed every Lobbyist and Special Interest their pockets in
exchange for favors, special tax breaks, and special legislation.
The American Voter is not without fault, as they have reelected their hometown favorite while
often crying, "throw the bums out". Change begins at home, if we all voted out our incumbents, we would indeed have change.
The result of this corrupt American political system, has been one designed specifically to prevent change and the end
of the once strong American Middle Class, the end of American Manufacturing, the end
of single income families, the end of home ownership, the creation of institutional
poverty and the creation of government dependence and creation of a Third World
America and an America where half of the American populace pay no taxes but receive
government assistance while the other half is required to carry the entire financial
responsibility of the Nation. This is commonly known as redistribution of wealth
which is the real class warfare.
The United States has long gone over the "Fiscal and Social Cliff". January 1, 2013 will merely be the wakeup call if and when the
cuts and tax increases are implemented, and i.e. the bill will have to start being
paid. No longer will the fiscal irresponsibility by the treasonous politicians, all
of whom have been elected and re-elected by the American people, be able to be
hidden from any American who pays taxes, i.e. the 49% who pays. The 51% who pays
nothing and receives government assistance will see no real impact and will no doubt
continue to cry out for more "Social Justice".
The Democrats in the House and
Senate, as well as the President have made it clear that Entitlements are not "on
the Table" for Budget reductions, and the Republicans will never discuss the
extremely bloated Defense Budget nor will they cut their welfare Programs that
benefit Corporations, such as subsidies and Tax Breaks for Exxon-Mobile.
With unemployment still truly in the double digits, when those who are underemployed and
those who have ceased searching for work is factored, there remains a critical need
to address immigration, yet BOTH Democrats and Republicans maintain the need to
increase Third World immigration, both for separate political reasons, the Democrats
for cheap votes and the Republicans for cheap corporate labor.
The result has been the displacement of American labor, the reduction of living wages, and the
importation of all Third World cultural degradation. One need only see the social ills and the degrading the public school system or tour an Emergency Room after 5PM.
Third World Immigration, codified by the 1965 Immigration Act of 1965 hasted the
Fiscal Cliff as Third World immigrants over-burdened Federal and State Social
Programs and have led to collapse the American Health Care and Education Systems and
overloaded the Criminal Justice Systems.
Third World Immigrants were never required
to fully assimilate as prior generations of European Immigrants. Third World
Immigrants brought with them, in many cases a socialist-leftist philosophy, and
America decided to embrace the culture of the immigrant rather than the immigrant
having to become an American.
In many cases, America has ceased becoming a Nation
and transformed into a Co-op, whereby many Nationalities come to take advantage of
benefits and laws not readily available in their own Nation. In fact, the United
States has so cheapened itself, that it is the only Nation that one can purchase
citizenship for $400.00 or be a Dual Citizen and serve in the U.S. Congress.
desprite fiscal times, any rational Nation would be having serious discussions as to
what is really and truly needed to solve the Nation's ills regardless of politics.
The United States has never had such a discussion.
In times of excessive
unemployment and underemployment and the destruction of the Middle Class, no
rational Nation whose leaders truly represent the Nation's interests would seek to
expand immigration, yet our President, via unconstitutional Executive Order
essentially provided a venue for 12 million illegal aliens to stay in the United
States, some States, such as California provide in-State College Tuition to illegal
aliens, while charging out of state tuition to American Citizens, and also provide
Drivers Licenses to illegal Aliens.
Meanwhile Republicans continue to demand more
workers from Nations such as India, implying that Americans are just too dumb, what
they really mean is that an East Indian will take a High Tech job for less. Such
Corporations should be double taxed for each foreign worker, Corporations such as
Apple and Microsoft.
In time of fiscal crisis, why should a Nation have an outdated
and punitive Income Tax System that requires half the population carry the financial
burden while allowing the other half to pay nothing and receive benefits? Every
person in the Nation should pay something, and thus be vested in the Nation.
The current "Fiscal Cliff" discussion should be generating an intellectual discussion
regarding ending the Income Tax and replacing it with a Consumption Tax on all sales
except food and medicine. Under this System, everyone, citizen or not, in the
Nation would pay something, and for those who want class warfare, the rich would
indeed pay more because they spend more, the poor pay less, because they spend less.
The current Income Tax System is inherently unfair and un-American as it
nationalizes every American’s income.
The current Income Tax System tell each
American how much of their own money they get to keep and unleashes a draconian
Soviet style enforcement System that the Founding Fathers would have rebelled
against, in fact the current tactics employed by the IRS make George III look like a
Under the current Income Tax System, every dollar taken in by the
income Tax System only accounts for about half the Nation’s budget, the remaining
half is paid via loans, Treasury Bills, more often than not by Communist China.
should we have to borrow from the Communist Chinese because we have a unfair and
punitive Tax System that allows half the populace to not pay anything?
States has long ago gone over the Cliff in terms of BOTH Fiscal and Social Policy.
What the politicians in Washington are really worried about is that they have run
out of smoke & mirrors to hide the real effects from the American people.
January 1, 2013, every taxpaying American will experience first-hand, the political
Sodom & Gomorra that has been Washington D.C. for years as millions of Americans are
forced to pay hundreds and thousands more in taxes for freebees which they received
Maybe then we will see some real American spirit, but I will not hold
my breath. Afterall, there is a Pay Day Loan shack on every corner now.
