Americans Hate The Subject Of Taxes But We The People Pay More On Taxes Than Food And Clothing Combined

Just think for a moment that after The American Revolutionary war our infant nation had no means of paying its debts. When the war ended, the United States had spent $37 million at the national level and $114 million at the state level. The United States finally solved its debt problems in the 1790s when Alexander Hamilton founded the first bank of the United States in order to pay off our debts and establish good national credit. The thing is we had to generate money to pay off our debts and that came about with The Tariff Act of 1789 to authorize the collection of tariff and tonnage duties to pay to provide funds to pay the interest and principal on revolutionary war debts inherited from the Continental Congress.

Our very first income tax was signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862 to help pay for the Civil War and that was just on a temporary time table. This tax was repealed in 1872. It was the 16th Amendment, adopted in February 1913, that gave Congress the legal right to levy an income tax. On the evening of Oct. 3, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Revenue Act of 1913 that allowed the collection of a federal income tax—starting the next day. At the time there was a total of 400 pages for this new income tax and now it has reached a total of over 75,000 pages which I am sure its probably more like 100,000 pages. To think that all the way from President Washington until President Wilson a Democrat in 1913 who was a racist and mocked our Constitution while he was a Dean at Princeton University our Republic did well without a permanent income tax outside of a few temporary
interruptions.

The following was posted by Terence P. Jeffery: “(CNSNews.com) “Americans on average spent more on taxes in 2016 than they did on food and clothing combined, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

“The same data also shows that in three years—from 2013 to 2016—the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent.”

“In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” (which include families, financially independent individuals, and people living in a single household who share expenses) spent more on average on federal, state and local taxes ($10,489) than they did on food ($7,203) and clothing ($1,803) combined ($9,006).”

“The average tax bill for American “consumer units” increased from $7,423 in 2013 to $10,489 in 2016, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

One thing that is very noticeable are the items that are left out such as utility costs such as cable, internet, cell phone and land phones, electric, which take up a big chunk of the monthly bill. How about medical insurance and medical bills. It’s a miracle how there can be money left over at the end of the month at all. On top of this you have the brain-dead Democratic Party (socialists) who wanted to tax the air we breath with all the phony global warming climate change crap. We The People are being taxed into submission which has always been the socialists plan of choking America into financial ruin. How can we not feel that President Trump is our last hope!

The Special Council On The Russian Investigation Robert Mueller Was Spooked To Cause Him To Impanel A Grand Jury

A number of years ago I read the latest biography on Alexander Hamilton and you know how it’s been said that you only remember about ten per cent of what you read, well that percentage has helped me many times on interesting facts that I was able to apply to my writing. Hamilton was asked as the story was told what did he consider to be his greatest weakness and he thought about it but not too long as a matter of fact and he said which I do not remember his exact words, that he felt his greatest weakness was that he felt he talked to much. Someone will ask where am I going with this? If you notice in my title I mentioned the fact that I feel that Special council Mueller got spooked into impaneling a Grand Jury and now we go to Alexander Hamilton having wished that he just wouldn’t talk too much and this is what I feel has happened in this case with President Trump, he did not hold his cards close to his chest because he had hinted a few times of displeasure with Mueller, not so much as saying he wanted to fire him but lets say he beat around the bush. I believe that Mueller got that feeling one time too often and impaneled a Grand Jury knowing that if he got fired by Trump there would be nothing anybody could do about the Grand Jury, that Grand Jury would stay on. This is my take as to the major reason notwithstanding of course there are other reasons also.

The following was posted by S.A. Miller and Andrea Noble, published by The Washington Times: “Special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to issue subpoenas and compel witness testimony as he probes Russian interference in the presidential election, including a June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer, according to news reports.”

“The move is not surprising, said legal analysts, describing it as a natural step that allows Mr. Mueller to have access to evidence needed for a criminal probe.”

“In a case like this, where you have a lot of documents that are going be necessary, grand jury subpoenas are a pretty early phenomenon,” said Philip Allen Lacovara, a former U.S. deputy solicitor general who served as counsel to Watergate special prosecutors.”

This whole thing of taking it to the Grand Jury when in fact you had Hillary Clinton destroying 33 thousand emails and taking a government server out of its secured area to bring it to an unsecured area, the constant pay for play monies going into the Clinton Foundation, Hillary giving Russia 20% of our uranium supplies to Russia, etc. etc. Like President Trump said as recently as today where is the investigation for all this and I have said and continue to say why did Robert Mueller’s friend former FBI Director James Comey not suggest a Grand Jury for all that but instead gave Hillary a pass and the reason is because this is the deep state. This is the attempted take down of President Trump. Now I know the elites as they are reading this are probably rolling their eyes. This is all so obvious and as I wrote a few days ago the House Intelligence Committee has asked for a second Special council from the Attorney General Jeff Session to start investigating all that I have mentioned. President Trump is wise to all this and he is pushing for an investigation just by him asking why there hasn’t been one. We The People are not even close yet to learning the truth but God will take us there because He will not allow America to fall from these enemies within.

It’s Still The Economy Stupid!

The United States economy is not going to improve as long as the small business person is holding on to two trillion dollars from investing it back into the economy, why should they? I can’t understand why these liberals who work for a living like myself understand that their boss who owns the company they are working for cannot invest their money without having the confidence that it will bring them a good return. This owner as a matter of fact now has to worry about his or hers survival just from programs like Obama Care. You liberals who put this President in office just do not realize the danger you have put our economy in by voting for a socialist. Do you really like the idea of the government controlling your life? You have no ambition to profit from your labor’s and the rewards that come with it. You need the government to tell you when to flush the toilet? That’s what you have done by voting for Obama. By voting for Obama you are biting the hand that is feeding you, the owner of your company. The socialistic philosophy is they know what is best for you and I. Obama knows no other way. He grew up with people who implanted this philosophy in his head and hung around people in college who shared this same belief but I will not excuse him for this. He knows the American economy is based on individualism, in other words the capitalistic system. This is how our Forefathers have established our American dream.

Alexander Hamilton was very big among our Forefathers who believed deeply in establishing a sound economy. Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison wrote the famous Federalist papers which were really written to urge the people of New York to ratify the new Constitution. He became our first Secretary of The Treasury. What a great choice this was. He sent reports to Congress on the public credit and the National bank which he started. He also said to Congress that if the nation was to grow and prosper it would have to both encourage foreign and domestic investment.

Hamilton was for the separation of powers, which was in the Constitution. An example is that the states could have its own marriage laws, and the central government would protect us from war.

Hamilton put in checks and balances; he felt strongly about this because with the separation of powers one of the branches might get to powerful, so they had checks and balances, which made sure that all the branches could be checked by the others to make sure they don’t have to much power.

Hamilton is one of my favorite Forefathers but that does not mean I agreed with everything he wanted which was a strong central government. (Obama would have loved that) He did not want to give the people the say in the matters of state. He did not think they knew enough to determine critical issues and decisions; thank goodness the other Forefathers overruled him on this issue and as we know Hamilton went along.

I brought up Alexander Hamilton because his focus was on the economy which he planted the seeds and formula that made us the biggest economic power in the world. We are not going to allow Obama to destroy our economy. I am sorry to say that unless Congress adjusts Obama Care it just might be to overbearing for our economy. Instead of employers trying to put all of their emphasis to make their company grow they will now be putting all their emphasis on how to survive Obama Care. Obama has put the United States into a situation that our Forefathers kept us away from and that is choking the economy. Obama knows economics; he has been schooled. So what is his intent? its to socialize the economy of the United States of America. His whole emphasis ever since his first Presidential election in 2008 has been class warfare, and as we have discussed many times that is the Karl Marx philosophy which has been classified as Marxism.

People have been leaving the workforce. The labor force has dropped to 63.3%. This is the lowest since 1979 and who was President in 1979? Jimmy Carter and a Democratic controlled Congress. We have been down this road before, the difference was that Carter brought us to that road by neglect not because he put the wheels in motion to get us there, but hope is not lost because as we all know the story of how a President Reagan came along because he knew what an economy needed to bring it back and that was because he had the confidence that if he showed the American people confidence in themselves he would have the confidence to set forth the ideas he needed to turn the economy around and we witnessed probably the most prosperous era’s in history. He taught Americans not to believe in welfare and food stamps but to believe in themselves. We need that person again, yes it can be done, but first things first, we need to change this Congress in 2014 to a Congress that will give the control of economics back to the people who control the engine of the economy, the small business person.

The News Media

When Mitt Romney was running for President he called a press conference to discuss a statement he had made on Benghazi. As the reporters were waiting for Romney they had not realized that there was a microphone open. What that microphone did was capture the reporters discussing coordinating questions for Romney; one reporter saying “no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question”. This is a sample of collusion if I ever saw one. Reporters sitting from different companies conspiring to ask Romney the same question, to make sure he answers the question. This is where we have come to. I am one to always protect the first amendment to the Constitution, but who is going to protect candidates running for office from a gang up, and the other candidate being protected from such scrutiny. Is that kind of scrutiny protected in the Constitution? maybe so, I am not a lawyer, but it might not be protected in a court of law if pursued. Remember that word I used in the beginning, “collusion”.

Lets go to basics and relate it to todays reporting. News reporters basic rules of reporting; I even learned this in grade school. They are called the five W’s.
Who is it about
What happened
When did it take place
Where did it take place
Why did it happen
Lets go back to the example I started with on Romney’s news conference. The five W’s were already answered before it started. It’s about Benghazi, in this instance it’s about the statement Romney made. It took place a few day’s before. It took place by Romney making a statement to reporters. Romney made the statement because he felt the President was not being clear to the American people about what happened in Benghazi, and to this day Obama is still lying. So all the W’s were already answered and there is no doubt that these reporters did not like the idea that Romney was questioning Obama and they wanted to embarrass him.

This is the same press that has protected Obama from the beginning. In my life time the news media has always given more coverage to the Democrats, which was always good coverage, but they reported the news. They would not take the Democratic candidate to the woodshed but at least they did report the news for each candidate, maybe not as wholeheartedly for the Republican, but they did report it. The following is from the book” Alexander Hamilton” by Ron Chernow. “Only a free press could check abuses of executive power, Hamilton asserted.Hamilton added that “men the most zealous reverers of the people’s rights have, when placed on the highest seat of power, become their most deadly oppressors. It becomes therefore necessary to observe the actual conduct of those who are thus raised up”. pg669 As you can see Hamilton is talking about if the person is already President. In Obama’s case his whole persona was covered up as a candidate and the other candidate’s persona was blown up like a balloon. Is this right for the public to know about one candidate, but Obama’s affiliations with Communists, Marxist( and he is one) a Rev.Wright and a terrorist through the years were not reported by the major news media; totally ignored to make sure he wins the Presidency? This is still going on as Obama is President by the news media hiding the truths about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, hiding his school records so the American people can possibly find out that he came to this country as a foreign exchange student, his birth certificate has been possibly proven a forgery. The news media is staying away from these like the plague and only the investigative reporters are looking into it. Fox News that the liberals hate, don’t even have the guts to pursue this.

There are some serious issues here in regard to news reporting. If a reporter has information on a candidate do they not have the obligation to report it to the public? because it is that reporters job classification to report all the news they know about a candidate, especially if they are reporting all the news of the candidate that they do not favor. The US Constitution protects us with freedom of speech, but it does not protect a reporter from holding back information about one candidate, but reporting everything they know about the other. If this continues America will continue to move towards a Marxist society, because most of the main stream press falls into that category.
