These charts represent a clear and present danger to the continued viability of our system of government.
The levels of taxation and debt necessary to finance the massive government growth projected by the Administration ’s proposals is simply unsustainable. There is no level of worker productivity or entrepreneurial innovation that can support that kind of government dead weight. .
The destruction of our currency, for which both parties are responsible, is an affront and insult to every citizen. The assault on savers is a particularly egregious act against those who sacrificed in order to build a secure future for themselves. Those who played by the rules and have been betrayed by a government that clearly despises them.
Worst of all each chart represents a huge but undocumented tax increase on the general population. While the regressive statists play their divide and conquer game of "tax the rich" they get off scot free while their policies literally destroy the American middle class.
Every American working person, entrepreneur and saver has an absolute right, perhaps an obligation to
posterity, to remove from office every elected official who has supported these cruel and vicious
regressive, statists policies.
While the charts above give a clear accounting of the quantifiable problems with the current administration's policies, the numbers crunching, bean counting negatives, if you will, there are other aspects of those policies, not quantifiable, that are even more dangerous to who we are as Americans and they are really not getting any exposure at all in the campaigns.
There are people writing about the attacks on our civil liberties, trying to get the information out to us, hopefully, before it's too late. I'd like to offer you some of the thoughts of one of them - Mr. Nat Hentoff. Nat Hentoff has been a pretty consistent middle of the road writer but he has also been one of this country's most passionate defenders of the First Amendment. He has literally lived that great quote from Voltaire (attributed) "I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it. Watching the current administration's actions he has turned his attention to its attacks on the Fourth Amendment and: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable search and seizures, shall not be violated . . . . "
In April Hentoff wrote: "How many Americans know that as of September 2013 all of us engaged in any form of communication will be subject-with the approval of President Barack Obama and the silence of Congress to continuous tracking and data basing by the National Security Agency (NSA)?" It turns out the NSA has a brand new spy (on us) center sitting right next door in Bluffdale, Utah. It's five times bigger than the US Capitol and its job will be to store and analyze: "All forms of communications, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails, parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases . . .”
The Feds are running amok with their obsession to know everything about everyone.
Hentoff asks: "Are you concerned?"
Well, are we?
