I agree that cuts should be made, but this is a small victory imo, even though they are basically just putting it on hold. I say its a victory because
taxes need to be raised on the wealthy. However, I was thinking a tax hike for those who are "filthy" rich. 400k is a lot of money, but it is just
peanuts compared to what the top 1% are earning in just a single day. Maybe even an hour for all I know.
I think these taxes should be raised BEFORE any spending cuts are made, because after cuts are made the government may decide that taxes do not need
to be raised. Many of the lobbyists are complaining to the politicians about raising taxes on the wealthy, and the fact that the US is basically
backed into a corner at the moment is the only way we are going to get those tax increases on the wealthy. So raise their taxes first, and then focus
And what is the first things that should be cut? The very first thing is military spending. Bring the troops home to defend our own borders. The US
claims to be so worried about terrorism, yet our borders are wide open to anyone who wishes to sneak in undetected, so you tell me if the whole
terrorism threat is a lie or not. And with the troops deployed at home on our own borders, quite a lot of money will be saved.
And then whittle down other aspects of the military that are unnecessary. And then focus on civilian related cuts, especially those that are
completely bogus and laughable. These savings will add up. But the big thing is military spending. And more specifically, there is so much money being
spent without accountability. What I mean is, that for reasons of "national security (lol)," only a select few can know where a lot of money is
going. And I am just guessing, but I bet it is fact, that a lot of that money ends up going to corporations in various countries. Basically taxpayer
monies being given to those who are hurting us more than helping us. This is "black" money, or covert money, and it is a huge drain on our
And like I said, if the government really were concerned about national security, they would have solved the border problem a long time ago. But
apparently the truth is that agencies like the DHS, TSA, etc. are in place to condition Americans into compliance and authority...So what is to come?
