My friend John Jay Myers, who is running for Congress in the Texas 32nd district (against Pete "Bailout" Sessions, BTW), sent me this epistle via Facebook.
It’s like watching a herd of clowns getting back into their little clown car.
So lets face it everyone, until the election you are going to be stuck listening to each side pander to you, as if their interest was ever YOU.
If the Republicans and the Democrats really cared about you, and invigorating the economy, they would suspend the income tax for a year. That’s right just plain let you keep your money.You know why? Because that is what they claim they are going to do with all the tax cuts any way, It just so happens.... it never happens.
So right now, while they are all in the spirit of giving, while they all seem to agree that tax cuts are good, let’s see them all man up and put a tax cut on the table that would really help you. AND DO IT RIGHT NOW! Let’s see them, suspend the income tax for 1 year. Starting NOW.
I have to intervene here. According to Ron Paul, we could totally eliminate the income tax and still fund our Federal Government at late 1990's levels. But that would reward the wealthy more than it rewards the poor (who pay no income tax at all). Because of our inability to square this particular circle, we will always have an income tax.
You should understand that they were perfectly willing to give to the banks much more of your money than this.... oh, but you are not a bank. I forgot, you are just that little guy they keep stepping on.
I am at the point where I no longer want to hear about tax cuts, not unless they want to talk about what got us here in the first place, they have to stop spending money.They are never specific about what they would stop spending money on, because they are addicts, because that is how they feed the people that pay their bills, the lobbyists, when it comes to spending these guys spend all day trying to figure out how to get your money into their friends' pockets. When they print money to get more of it to spend; as they have to when cutting taxes, the money in your bank account or pocket loses its value, thus creating the worst tax of all, inflation. A tax that truly devastates the poor and middle class.
It’s easy to recklessly endorse any tax cut on the table, but to not pair it with drastic cuts in spending shows that these people do not care about you or the future of this country.
