In a time not too long ago, if one read this, it would be pretty good fiction. Unfortunately today it is becoming an accepted idea for the 50% of Americans who live on wealth redistribution.
From Canada Free Press-
In a testament to the literal bankruptcy of socialism, a report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) advocates for both a massive tax increase and a“one-off” worldwide tax of approximately 10 percent on anyone with more assets than debt. The former idea is a proven economic non-starter. The latter idea amounts to outright plundering. Released in October, “Taxing Times” makes the case that ever-expanding government debt, coupled with rising levels of income inequality, leaves policy-makers with few other options for dealing with the fiscally irresponsible welfare states they themselves created. It is a level of fiscal irresponsibility that has pushed the average level of public debt to a “historic peak” of 110 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is 35 percent higher than it was in 2007.

We are so lucky to have some of the smartest elite professors teaching at some of our institutions of higher learning. Here is a nice quote from a University of Washington professor’s piece about the Tea Party.
“Can we not say that the Tea Party is heavily involved in politics?” he wrote. “Further, can we not also say that many Tea Partiers are not educated and accomplished? Finally, can we not also say that the Tea Party has an intolerant element? The answer to all three is yes. So, to answer your question, I recognize why some on the right are alarmed at the comparison, but they need to bear in mind that the comparison is VERY specific to the Klan of the 1920s:
Well to be fair, it’s not just President Obama, it’s most Democrats who want to continue expanding that redistribution of wealth philosophy. You say it can’t happen because this is America. Yeah, that’s as absurd as saying that everyone will be required to have health insurance. Oops- It can happen just like it did in Argentina a few years ago.
In his first term, Obama managed to get his paws on health care, banking, energy, student loans, the auto business, and more. Now he has his sights set on your 401(k). The left has had its eye on retirement savings for years, but so far takeover attempts have been rebuffed. One egregious attempt was the proposal, following the 2010 financial crisis, to “safeguard” retirement savings by requiring that they be rolled over into Treasury bonds.
No surprise here. The Obama administration quietly finalized the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a provision in Obamacare that will cost nearly $60 billion over the next five years and raise health care premiums by 3 percent. The final rule, published on Nov. 27, imposes a fee beginning in 2014 for health insurers with premium revenues over $25 million per year. The annual tax is levied for “United States health risks,” and is hidden from consumers since it is directly assessed on health insurance companies.

It just never stops! Happy holidays from the Obama administration. Federal agencies are currently working on rolling out hundreds of environmental regulations, including major regulations that would limit emissions from power plants and expand the agency’s authority to bodies of water on private property.
On Tuesday, the White House released its regulatory agenda for the fall of 2013. It lists hundreds of pending energy and environmental regulations being crafting by executive branch agencies, including 134 regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency alone.
We are thankful for the few Patriots who continue to fight!!
Yesterday’s Senate vote to enact the “Nuclear Option” won’t just raise the stakes in 2014 but the future of this great Nation-PERIOD. At the very least, this will allow most of the Judicial Courts to be filled with judges that will resemble those of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the most liberal and dangerous court in the land. Funny how then Senator Obama and the majority of the Democratic Senators went crazy about the Republicans discussing the same option several years ago. They did not have a problem pushing and passing it in the Senate yesterday. Shows just how hell bent they are on pushing their agenda and continuing to fundamentally transform this country.

By Daniel Horowitz on the Senate’s vote for the Nuclear Option- Who can blame Harry Reid for pulling the nuclear option, eliminating the filibuster on judicial nominees? He has punched Senate Republicans in the face all year and they have failed to respond. In fact, Senate Republicans have turned around and fought their fellow Republicans in the House, jamming them with bad legislation which they helped Harry Reid pass out of the Senate.
Food for thought in this Editorial/Perspective by Matt Kibbe in Investors.com.
In his latest column, Thomas Sowell argues that the Tea Party blundered in the fight to defund ObamaCare.
It’s a curious about-face from the eminent Mr. Sowell. Back in October, he encouraged conservatives to hold fast and secure in the truth, explaining: “If Senator Reid and President Obama refuse to accept the money required to run the government, because it leaves out the money they want to run ObamaCare, that is their right. But that is also their responsibility.”

The government is getting ready to seize even more land to put under federal as well as UN control. If they control the land, they control the food and they control the people. The Marxist moonbat Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who has been on the job about 6 months, is touting the coming Jack Bootedness of the Obama Administration using conservation as a shield.
The Executive Order that President Obama signed last Friday is certainly not getting the press coverage it deserves. I know, you almost grow immune to this stuff since it seems to happen every week or so, but this is truly scary stuff. When will America wake up and realize that our electricity and food do not just appear because we want or will it to.
President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property. Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween. The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.”
As the most recent weeks have proved, the Republican Party leadership is definitely working against the Tea Party and its values. Names aside, they appear content to return to the big government policies that existed before the Obama era. Spokesman such as Karl Rove and pundits from the Weekly Standard, plus many elected Republican officials are working hand in hand with Democrats and other Progressives to keep big government in place. It is obvious that the Tea Party, with its insistence on limited government and adherence to the Constitution, is a major opponent of big government and, as such, must be discredited. Because the Republican Party is taking a strong stance against those of us who are working to change our government, we cannot financially support the Republican Party (or, for that matter, ANY political party) as we progress through this next election cycle.
To ensure that your limited resources are put to better use we advocate donating to individual candidates and to races across the nation in support of real conservative candidates. An example is the Virginia Governor’s race which is on November 4. This race is extremely important as it has national implications for true conservatives’ political success. Please see below the email received from the Richmond Tea Party is response to our asking for information about the race.
Nov 5th is Election Day. We usually get about 30%
participation for gubernatorial (mid-term)elections. The light turn-out means
the most important thing to do is GOTV—Get Out The Vote! Whoever gets their
base to the polls wins…no matter what surveys beforehand say. The lighter the
turnout, the better for conservatives. If we’re going to win, we must be better
at GOTV than the Dems.
Please communicate to your members that
the Lt. Gov. race is critical, too! We have a 50-50 split in the State Senate!
The Lt. Gov. casts deciding votes and determines committee chair party
affiliation (which means controlling the entire agenda of what will be brought
to the floor). It is JUST AS IMPORTANT as the Governor’s race! E.W.Jackson is
the candidate, a very strong Tea Party guy, and the best orator in VA.

Here’s what you can
do to help!
about money…clicking on the individual campaign web sites above would be one
if I may be so crass, is to donate to Richmond Tea Party on our web site.
We have found
that the only way to get people to come out & canvass door-to-door/phone
bank is to offer them money! The up-side is that we can attract a LOT of
young people. They get a free education in conservative principles & the
political process as they work for us. Example, we could offer $500 for 1500 doorknobs
to a church youth group, or a fraternity, or any other group. A supervisor tags
along with each ‘cluster’ of workers to ensure that they are working hard
& the data is properly loaded up (We use a program called rvotes). So, if
you would like to donate to that, it will directly go to GOTV. We could also
put a radio ad on the biggest AM conservative talk station in VA, WRVA.

The fact that the majority of Americans and their politicians continue to raise the Debt Ceiling and refuse to cut spending is just amazing. Most Americans have never had to pay attention nor pay the consequences of these actions. As I conversed with many of the MoveOn.org protesters in front of Congressman Yoho’s Gainesville office the other day, we actually agreed on many things, the problem was how to get from point A to point B. I kept hearing that we need to pay for more safety nets and a realistic minimum (living) wage. When asked how and by who was this to be paid for, I kept getting the same response, “we need to pay for more safety nets and a realistic minimum wage.”
I must give credit to the effectiveness of school boards and the teacher unions, who after 50 years have two generations of disciples who believe they are victims and entitled. “Free market principles ARE BAD.”
These “victims” truly believe that the money is there and that you, the Republicans, are just unwilling to share. That being said, please read this great article from RedState. If you are not a fan of the Tea Party movement just replace the term with American. It really comes down to the money and as such the fight must go on.
If you only pay attention to the alphabet soup liberal media or the Gainesville Sun you should be very very worried about the “Republican government shut down” and the “Republican Default.” I’m sure it is the GOP’s fault that President Obama has not been able to carry out his wish of trimming government. As he put it in 2010, “We cannot sustain a system that bleeds billions of taxpayer dollars on programs that have outlived their usefulness, or exist solely because of the power of a politician, lobbyist, or interest group.” He added, “We simply cannot afford it.”
See, it can’t be his fault. Certainly NOT.
Please read this good article from FEE (Foundation For Economic Education) about this fabricated crisis.
