the President is right

As much as it Pains me to say this, the debt has gone too far to be able to manage it with cuts alone.

We are going to have to raise taxes, so on that issue the President is right, however everyone is going to have to “chip in” as the President also said, we can exempt the very very poorest of us certainly however anyone living 200 percent above the poverty line should pay something even if it is just a small amount.

The one thing that we must do here is to not waste any more of this money.

We simply cannot afford to fund radio and TV, and Gas and Oil, and Corn, and Farming, we have to use this money wisely.

If that does not happen, then financially we cannot recover.

So yes, call it revenue or taxes that is something that must be done, and it can be done really it can but we must have a special account where this money is collected and it will not be spent on things that does not directly reduce the debt.

No more Bailouts, no more Arts and humanities, programs, no more waste.

We must find a method to deal with this issue and fix it, otherwise what happened yesterday on the stock market will only be a drop in the bucket. We are seeing just the beginning of a huge issue that could cause millions and millions of Americans to be homeless, while banks hold empty homes, hostage, and senators draw ever increasing paychecks to allegedly betray the American people to our enemies.

Sounds like a movie but it is playing out in the news every day.

We are going to have to raise taxes to deal with this issue however, only if we have a balanced budget amendment to the constitution otherwise we might as well go back to the stone ages and default on everything.

If you have a leaking boat, and the water is getting higher, eventually if you do not fix the cause of the leak the boat will sink, sounds pretty simple right, well it is, and the leak must be fixed. The Tax code is antiquated and outdated, it simply must be fixed, and the only way to do that is to make it so simple that a cave man can do it, a flat tax is the only thing that makes any real sense.

would you be willing to pay more taxes?

If, and this is a big if,

If, they could guarantee that the extra tax revenue would go to reduce the debt and secure the social security system for the futures of our children and beyond, I believe that a majority of Americans would in fact support a tax increase however so far we have seen nothing to make us believe that they can do what they say they would do.

They make promises then get into office and then they conveniently forget they made the promise.

The facts are clear, most people would likely agree to pay more taxes if they knew that without fail that money would be used effectively to reduce our national debt, I suspect that there are a lot of people that would pay a great deal of money to help out our nation in its time of need, however without a fail-safe method of insuring that the money is not piffled, away as it has in the past, most people are not going to be OK with raising “TAXES” or “REVENUE” but and I really think this is accurate.

If it was put down in black and white, and under penalty of imprisonment, fines and jail time, (were one dime to go missing or be unaccounted for then most Americans would be for a tax increase) it is our way, to help out in times of need.

The thing is that we have not seen that level of assurance over the last 50 years, yes, that means that we have had many presidents that have failed to manage our debt effectivly.

However we do know a few things that will work, and we have seen it work in the past, so the only real way forward here it so do something great, and not a great bargain, but a great thing, something that the consitution would approve of doing, ballancing the budget, not on the backs of the people but by saving money that does not need to be piffiled away.

This can be done without threatning the old people or the halt and the lame, this can be done without threatning our brave soilders who wage war so that we may be free.

It is nonsense to threaten the old and the lame, and the sick and the blind and the disabled, that is horror and should not be.

Our nation has the resources, we have the intellect, we can manage our energy we can manage our resources so that we can pay our bills, we do not need this ignorance in our society.

  1. What we need, is a flat tax rate, (allowing for the poorest amoung us to be provided for)
     
  2. We need a ballanced budget amendment.
     
  3. We need, a modest TAX increase and a bill to keep congress from wasting our money.
     
  4. We need to take care of our old and our hurting people, and it can be done, we are not broke, but we have been acting stupidly.
     
  5. We need a capitol Tax holiday, to free up capitol, 30 days should do it.
     
  6. We, need to take back our nation from the FED…
     
  7. We need to work together so that our children may have the opprotunity to play together not be slaves together in the future, that is what we need, the only question that remains is do we have men on Capitol hill that will stand up for what is right? 

    That is what we need to do, it is so simple yet, our politicians are so concerned with loosing face, that they cannot find a way to work together, acting like children on a playground rather than working together, this includes the white house as well, because they have made mistakes here as well as anyone else.

I truly hope that we can find a way to emerge from this mess with the kind of back bone that our fathers and our grand fathers had when they faced down bullets on Omaha Beach, when they faced down evil and fought that we might have the freedom we have today, if we fail in this how many dead will have given their lives in vain?

Millions and millions of Men, Women, who gave everything so that we might be free, would have been silenced for no other reason than pride?

Are we so vain in our own minds that we cannot see the total ignorance and vanity of this behavior?

Stand tall because that is what is required, what if our grandfathers had not faced down evil in 1944 and 1945 would the world not be different today in a very horrible way?

If we allow American to fail, because we did not have the back bone to stand up against ignorance and opression then the voices of millions of slain Americans will cry out from the earth.

We simply cannot do less than those who gave everything so that we might have the chance to be free from ignorance.
