As a citizen of the US it is disheartening to read these post over and over spewing the same anger. This is based on a divisive government
perpetuating the concept of their necessity to repair the illegitimate ills of the country. ie: If there is no problem we will create one to give us
a reason to take your hard earned money, take our cut, keeping us in charge, giving it to the other side of the argument. If that isn't enough then
we will disguise your purchased vote with a program or in some cases free money. This in effect keeps you right where they need you, dependant on
them, the kind and philanthropic government.
Black Versus White
Rich Versus Poor
Gay Versus Straight
Muslim Versus Christians
Men Versus Woman
immigrant Versus Citizen
Faith Versus Atheist
Everything you see on television, radio, movies, print and now the internet is slanted to perpetuate the divisive separation of the citizenry. The day
we band together and vote for changes based on equality and quit taking from one to give to another that's when real change will take place. Of all
the trillions of dollars collected by the government for decades what has changed? Has any of the above gotten better? Are you still fighting for
equality? Are you ready to change your mindset yet?
In this conversation of taxing the citizenry it seems to be ignored the taxes we pay on everything else. It's incredible the amount of money
collected in everything from property tax to excise tax on tires. Fuel tax in most states in about 50 cents a gallon or more, we burn about 365
million gallons a day. And the government would like you to think the oil companies make all the money. I submit the taxes paid every day by John Q
Citizen is equal to their income tax. If you rent your rent pays all or part of the property tax, no landlord will pay it gratis.
You will never be successful as long as you fall into the real conspiracy of life in America, the divisive program perpetuated by your government. I
can't tell you how many "Rich" people I have met that came to this country will no help, literally lunch money in their pocket worked their butts
off and parlayed that into wealth. They didn't fall into the us against them mentality. If you depend on the government for your subsistence you're
setting yourself up for failure. We all started working for someone else saving until we could try going off on our own. If we fail go back and start
over but I wanted to depend on me not an over taxing government, or a large company where I was a number and a percentage of the payroll.
I don't hold it against someone that's rich, you find your way, I will find mine, if you want to work 40 hours a week for someone else and that
satisfies you, great, if you work overtime and invest in real estate great, I don't want what you have earned. It's yours not mine. Thank God I am
not in a country like Afghanistan with little hope for anything but a dirt sandwich, green tea, and violence at every turn.
Thank God I was born in America with better chances for a great life than anywhere else in the world. Change your mindset, get away from division it
takes away from every positive thing you could bring to yourself through your own efforts.
