This country was founded on a simple but ingenious plan. Minimal taxation provided for the needs of government, national defense and our basic infrastructure. Along the way, 12 years of free education was provided to every man, woman and child.
Our government was never intended to be a medical, charity or welfare provider. There was a “temporary” income tax to fund World War I that never went away. Politicians and their bureaucrats simply used American’s hard earned money like a narcotic and their habit would only increase in its thrust and hunger.
America became a welfare state not only taking care of Americans but every trespasser that could violate our borders. Our income tax system for collecting money also became a welfare system with every bogus kind of tax credits for those who were under or unemployed. A Social Security system was created for the retirement of the elderly. Instead it became a welfare program for narcotic addicts, drunks and malingerers.
Guess what folks? The bill is due and they have squeezed the very life blood out of Americans and they still want more!
The Liberal Governors are now demanding a $ trillion-dollar bailout behind all the failed banks, investment houses, auto makers and a never ending list of groups with their hands out.
As California hands out IOUs instead of tax refuund checks I’m wondering if I can use those IOUs as a form of payment for all the other taxes I’m required to pay? Can I use those IOUs for my mortgage lender, grocery store or dentist? I did not think so. Government simply refuses to downsize no matter what.
We used to have part-time legislators at the state and federal level but now they are all full time money wasters. I don’t have a clue what’s coming aside from a much weaker America and the welfare state will collapse. That makes it clear, that skyrocketing crime rates along with major disturbances are on the way.
Our founding fathers had it right the first time and if we are going to survive as a country we must return to our American roots. I don’t think we will do that so I can’t help but believe the American experiment is over. Say goodbye to freedom, prosperity and safety.
