Under Obama – I’m a filthy evil Phatty McRicherson

The best part about this ad is that the left doesn’t even deny it’s true. Here is a little segment from the HuffPo. Note the lack of denial cloaked behind, ‘well…technically speaking…’ bullcrap:

“The claim that Obama voted to raise taxes on people making more than $42,000 comes with a caveat. The Budget Resolution that Obama voted for and McCain now highlights was a provision to allow portions of the 2001 And 2003 Tax Cuts to expire. Taxes would have gone up. But it was not a vote to raise taxes.”

The simple question is – will Obama raise taxes? The answer is yes. And don’t try the ‘only on the rich’ because that is total subjective class based crap. Who gets to decide that, and how is that fair? 

“Oh – we’re sorry. We’ve decided that you’ve become too successful. We are now going to steal force you to pay more than other less successful people on the assumption that the only reason you are wealthy is because you somehow exploited people to get there. But don’t get upset, we are doing it for the good of ________________(insert glittering generality: i.e. ‘the children,’ ‘the elderly,’ ‘to save the planet’)”

-you’re friendly governmental tyranny

I know that the ‘Robin Hood’ approach sounds all justified and appeals to some people – but realize that it wasn’t simply ‘the rich’ whom Robin Hood was stealing from to give back to the poor. It was the corrupt government who was taxing the crap out of it’s people, and Robin Hood fought against that tyranny, or so the story goes.

Don’t be fooled. Taxing ‘the rich’ for the benefit of the poor, is bold faced, class based Marxism.

My wife and I worked our freaking rears off to get to where we are today (with some loving help from our parents who also worked their own rears off…). We went to college so that we could get decent paying jobs, and are now paying off our own educations. The idea that the state should have the right to force us to pay more for other people who have not chosen to work as hard, in my opinion, is totally unethical.

What say you? Would you like your taxes raised when you reach a certain level of prosperity defined by politicians?

    Um, yeah, if that logic worked, communist countries would be global economic leaders. And, just because I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am today, I deserve to pay more taxes (nominally and proportionally) to fund those that chose to get high while I was studying my butt off for 4 years?

    According to Keynes, government programs should only fund what’s not profitable for individuals–like interstate roads–and the rest should be left to individuals. And he’s a much better economist than Obama. WTF is “budget neutrality” anyway?!

  2. whatthecrap? Says:

    no kidding. The other fav. term is “economic justice.” What the crap does that mean?

    It’s not an injustice that some people don’t have material things that others have.

    Or perhaps somehow we got the things we have…unjustly…? I’d like to see someone try and back up that claim.

    By the way – I was joking with Sean: I think Budget Neutrality actually has to do with having a equal balance of acids and basses in your budget mixture. HA!

    Interesting little fact about the income tax:
    From President Reagan’s executive commity report (1984)
    http://www.uhuh.com/taxstuff/gracecom.htm

    “100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal debt and by Federal Government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their Government.”

    So when people think that their taxes go to pay for this and that… they’re wrong. It doesn’t even cover the interest. We have so many different taxes on us, raising or lowering taxes won’t really change the fact that the economy and the whole system is defunct.

    I don’t give into the fear mongering or threat of taxes being raised. We’re in a country that charges us like a socialist nation, yet doesn’t offer any public programs. Money that is offered by the government goes to the corporations and war. This country is broken.
