The Democrats And Taxes

According to such cartoon characters as Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats, should they manage to get enough of their fellow travellers elected so as to have a majority in the House of Representatives, with Pelosi expected to become Speaker of the House (well, Halloween is almost upon us, so what's a good scare among friends?), one of the first priorities of the Democrats will be to stamp out the Bush tax cuts and roll back our taxes to 1990s levels.

If I were an enemy of the state, I would utterly destroy my hands applauding this ambition. Unfortunately, I am a patriot who loves America, to say nothing of the fact that I am also an American who lives and pays taxes here, so I must convey the blatant fact that I am not a fan of this intended tax increase.

I understand the Democrats' need to tax me into the ground. Well, not exactly understand it, per se, but I realize that the Democrats have a serious problem with their fellow Americans being able to keep some of the money they earn and are fixated on the concept of raising taxes whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Some people are into sky diving, some people collect butterflies, some people are passionate stamp collectors, some people love archery, some tennis, some throwing rocks at passing cars, some surfing porn websites, some collecting sea shells, some climbing trees, others mountains.... Democrats are into raising taxes. It's what they do, just as sucking blood is what mosquitos do, or what leeches do.

It's not their fault, it's simply who they are.

They particularly like to tax those who are successful, like the rich and like large, prosperous corporations, and are very much like Robin Hood -- they take from the rich, and give to the poor. It makes them feel good -- hell, it makes them feel great -- stripping a big company of its investment capital plunges them into ecstasy.

Back in the 1980s, during the Reagan Administration, the greatest President in my lifetime stopped the bloodsucking practice of penalizing American business for its success, allowing it to keep its investment capital in order to put it to work, and lo and behold, despite the Democrats' criticism of what they fondly referred to as Reaganomics, our economy exploded into a dynamo of successful professionals, low unemployment, newly created millionaires and prosperous companies.

This trend continued through the Bush 1 Administration, but then, alas and alack, American voters sent Bill Clinton, a Democrat, off to the White House.

Keeping to the sacred tradition of Democrats, he raised taxes, as usual targeting the rich.

Before the end of his second term (he was actually reelected, go figure!), we were plunged into recession. The unemployment rate soared, businesses struggling to stay afloat transferred record amounts of their production to outsourced labor pools and after Algore, Clinton's Veep, lost the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush, the newly elected President engendered massive tax cuts.

Naturally the Democrats, dismayed that Americans were being permitted to keep more of their earnings, mounted yet another of their innumerable bumper-sticker friendly campaigns -- "The Republicans have given tax cuts to the rich, screwing the poor as always!"

That was worth, at the very least, a good chuckle, since every American taxpayer was entitled to the cuts. The Democrats somehow managed, once realizing that they really couldn't produce any low income working folks who were being either neglected or recieving the fid, cited poor people on welfare and other premature social security venues who weren't benefiting from the tax cuts, the fact that these people didn't pay any income tax to begin with notwithstanding... they actually forced the government to give something "back" to these noncontributors as well.

Meanwhile, the tax cuts enabled corporate America and smaller business people to use the "surplus" equity to expand existing business and create new enterprises.

The result has been a major rebound in our economy and a serious decrease in the unemployment rate that is still adjusting downward. America is again flourishing!

But let's not be too confident, friends, okay? We still haven't had this year's elections, so we don't actually know where we stand.

We're pretty confident about holding a Republican majority in the Senate, but there has been a lot of negative conjecture regarding the House majority after 7 November. Personally, I believe we'll hold our majority there, as well, though we'll have a few less seats.


Should the Democrats gain a majority in the House Of Representatives, they will raise taxes, and you can bet your bottom dollar, assuming you still have one, that the late 1990s recession will return even more quickly than it went away.

Of course, the Democrats will find a way to blame Bush....

97 reasons(+ 1)....

.... not to vote Democrat on Election day are made more than apparent by two of my favorite right-thinking women.

Raven of And Rightly So posts on 97 excellent reasons here,

and the venerable Melanie Morgan provides another sterling reason here.

Those Democrats have really changed since the days of JFK, it seems all the fight's gone out of them, except where their wars against our national security and the preservation of the American way of life are concerned.

Bush Was Right

RightMarch now has a TV spot featuring the patriotic Right Brothers and their song, Bush Was Right.

Bill Greene, President of RightMarch, can use some help from all of us to get it on the air and get it some exposure. Up until recently, the left, via the dumbass, treasonous stooges of liberalism Mainstream Media were creaming us with their propaganda, now the right thinkers in Washington{not the apples and Bill Gates one, the District of Columbia one}, from George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Carl Rove on down are finally speaking out and turning the tide from anti-American leftist B.S. to the truth and consequently bringing up the approval ratings of the administration as more and more Americans learn what's really going on in our nation's capital, the economy and Iraq.

The tireless(I don't know where he gets it, he's a pretty big guy), tenaciously patriotic Mr. Greene tells all about it in the latest RightMarch alert.

ALERT: Doesn't it feel good to say "I told you so" when you're proven right?

Wouldn't you like to say it right in the face of all those liberals who have been trashing President Bush for five years?

Now you can.

Take a look at this 30-second TV ad we're planning to run nationwide - you're gonna LOVE it:


I know, I know -- it just doesn't seem right, kicking the liberals when they're down. After all, the economy is up thanks to tax cuts; the Iraqis are holding free elections; Saddam Hussein is on trial; our brave troops are making great progress in the War on Terror; and the President's poll numbers are climbing again.

It's enough to make Ted Kennedy cry in his drink. It's enough to flip Carl Levin's comb-over. It's enough to put a sour look on Nancy Pelosi's face. It's enough to turn MoveOn into RollOver.

And our ad is designed to keep it up -- and keep it in their faces.

We've been pushing our "Tell the TRUTH About Iraq" campaign for months now, with print and radio ads delivered to millions nationwide. And thanks to YOU, that campaign is WORKING -- we're hearing more and more about all of the GOOD news coming from Iraq, instead of just the small amount of BAD news that the mainstream media has been bombarding us with. Even the Administration has finally started holding "good news" press conferences, after "holding back" for so long.

And, we're in the middle of our grassroots campaign to force MTV to play the new song by The Right Brothers, "Bush Was Right!" We've crashed MTV's website several times with all of the requests from our members to see the video on their show, "Total Request Live." We ARE getting their attention -- and we'll keep pushing hard for them to show at least a LITTLE balance in what they're presenting to America's youth.

Now, though, it's time to REALLY grab some attention -- from the mainstream media; from liberal politicians; and especially, from average Americans who need to hear the TRUTH about all of these FACTS.

This ad is a GREAT way to do that -- but we need YOUR help to get it on the air:


We want to start out by airing the ad on Fox News, especially during the top-rated shows "The O'Reilly Factor" and "Hannity & Colmes". O'Reilly's show alone attracts over TWO MILLION viewers per show!

With all of the media coverage that will get us, we can then move on to airing the ad -- where else? -- on MTV.

Unless they continue to censor us -- in which case, it will get even MORE media coverage, and even MORE Americans will be reminded that "Bush Was Right"...

And YOU will get to say "I told you so" to even MORE liberals.

This is a BIG move for us, and it's going to cost BIG bucks. A 30-second ad on "The O'Reilly Factor" alone costs over $30,000. Even MTV charges $8,000 for an ad like this.

But we KNOW that this ad will have a HUGE effect. It can't be helped -- liberals already HATE the song in this ad, and they've been screeching about it for weeks (everyone from Al Franken on Air America, to leftist Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, to bloggers like the Daily Kos). And can you blame them? They can't STAND the fact that "BUSH WAS RIGHT!"

PLEASE HELP US get this ad aired where it will have the most effect: Fox News... Bill O'Reilly... Hannity & Colmes... MTV... and beyond!

If you can afford to donate $30,000, great -- we'll get this ad on right away! Most of our members can't do that, of course -- but if 6 people give $5,000, or 10 people give $3,000, or 15 people gave $2,000, or 30 people gave $1,000, we'd reach our goal!

In fact, if just 300 people gave $100 each... or just 600 people gave $50 each... or just 1000 people gave $30 each... this ad would immediately be seen by TWO MILLION people!

WILL YOU HELP? Whether it's $30 or $30,000, every bit counts! This is YOUR chance to grab some attention for the TRUTH -- and have fun doing it! Click here to donate now:

The Truth vs A Liberal Lie

The Bush Administration has been assailed, since going into Iraq, by a "Bush lied, people died!" platform on the left, the single strongest point in the entire liberal anti-Bush arsenal of rhetoric.

The so-called "lies" are pretty interesting as they were all supported, vociferously, along with the need to oust Saddam Hussein, by the same portside politicians that now deny having ever uttered the opinion that Saddam had WMD or accusing the Bush Administration of tampering with intelligence that led them to the above opinions.

They are bald-faced, politically motivated liars. Even if Bush or Cheney had managed, for whatever reason, to manipulate the conclusions of the CIA regarding the presence of WMD in Iraq, one would have to say, then, that France, Germany and the other countries that opposed us going into Iraq also altered their intelligence, because their leaders all believed, based upon reports from their own intelligence agencies, that the WMD were there and that Saddam was expanding his NBC warfare inventory on an ongoing basis. And all agreed, until we invaded Iraq, that the weapons posed a threat to the immediate region and to the west, since in the latter case it was believed that Saddam might pass some of the weapons of mass destrucion on to terrorists.

The actual crux of the gripes I have is the fact that the left has totally lost its conscience and any semblance of honesty, and in pursuit of goals not compatible with the objectives of America's founding concepts, they have no problem where ignoring facts or outright lying, and that includes the news media, which supports them, is concerned.

Dubya did not take us to war in Iraq lightly, he had justifiable reasons that have since manifested their purpose, though the Mainstream Media, out of political bias, does not report any of these positives.

However, Norman Podhoretz puts the entire situation in perspective.

The very idea that the Democrats would turn around and pretend that they never endorsed an invasion of Iraq and overthrow of Saddam Hussein, the denial motivated by the War On Bush, pretty much demonstrates the lack of honesty, truth and soul on the left side of the political spectrum.

Among the many distortions, misrepresentations and outright falsifications that have emerged from the debate over Iraq, one in particular stands out above all others. This is the charge that George W. Bush misled us into an immoral or unnecessary war in Iraq by telling a series of lies that have now been definitively exposed.

What makes this charge so special is the amazing success it has enjoyed in getting itself established as a self-evident truth even though it has been refuted and discredited over and over again by evidence and argument alike. In this it resembles nothing so much as those animated cartoon characters who, after being flattened, blown up or pushed over a cliff, always spring back to life with their bodies perfectly intact. Perhaps, like those cartoon characters, this allegation simply cannot be killed off, no matter what.

Nevertheless, I want to take one more shot at exposing it for the lie that it itself really is. Although doing so will require going over ground that I and many others have covered before, I hope that revisiting this well-trodden terrain may also serve to refresh memories that have grown dim, to clarify thoughts that have grown confused, and to revive outrage that has grown commensurately dulled.

So read the column.
