The “Fair Share” Myth:

So goes the average argument from a Liberal (Leftist) mindset:

“The (Extreme/Uber) wealthy, should not be allowed their “deductions” and “loopholes”, because that means they’re not paying their fair share” and this means government can’t provide enough subsidies for all (societal) socialist concerns.

Though the imagined/perceived arguments; and consequences and/or results of this are far too reaching for a single article on such subject, I’ll summarize with one: “If all such (Extreme/Uber) “wealthy” people paid their “fair share”, these (societal) socialist concerns (free education, healthcare, welfare, and other special interests) would benefit greater in comparison to their present status’

From this point, this innumerable plethora of “interests” are listed, labeled, identified, etc…and then the return to the endless progressive arguments, whose total end game/goal, is absolute Statism.

I couldn’t care less for the weasels who attempt to slither under the radar, for individual differences (Oh that’s not me, because ________________________________) because by such instant deflection, they prove they do not understand the end result (ignorance), or they’re simply (deceptive) lying to you.

To begin with: who decides this fair share amount/percentage, what all is it based on, who defines what fair means; and is it really fair to all concerned?

And with the simple insertion of such questioning, it has now successfully changed the focus of the conversation through the use of something I refer to as “D.E.A.D. arguments”, pointing to their distractive, evasive, avoidance and deflecting from the immediate topic.

Unless we’re discussing a flat rate/amount/percentage (already complex) and an outright revocation of the entire U.S. income tax code (replacement legislation needed), you’re still discussing a process that includes nearly 400 million Americans, who all should be considered in the process and application of such replacement system.

Every locale across the country is going to demand equal representation in such legislation considerations, with every city/county/state taxing board offering multitudes of ideas, proposals, suggestions, grievances, etc…

One of the reasons such difficult conversations are difficult with respect to those on the Liberal Left, is because basic facts, logic, math, science and deductive reasoning, are largely inadmissible in conversations with them about such topics; especially where it concerns contradiction or even correcting them.

Some facts and figures:

2017 U.S. GDP (Gross Domestic Product – Source www.thebalance.com) = $18 (trillion), 485 Billion.

2017 U.S. Government Revenue – Source www.thebalance.com) = $3.342 Trillion

$3,342 trillion / $18,485 Trillion = 18%

For 2017, “The federal deficit (SHORTFALL) in 2017 was $665 billion (Another 2/3rd trillion dollars – Source – www.cbo.gov) which would have required the taking of an additional 3.5 percent of gross domestic product, to balance out for the year.

So we’ll use a conservative figure of 21%, are you willing to agree to a flat rate of 21% of your own income being handed over to the Federal Government? Do you believe that if applied to all “Employed” individuals equally, the Federal Government would raise enough income to meet its yearly budgetary expenditures?

It wouldn’t come close.

Though America did first see yearly deficit amounts of more than 1 trillion (nearly 2 trillion in 2010) during the Obama “recovery” period, our yearly deficits will exceed this on a regular basis, in only a few short years’ time.

And our yearly deficits and debts, are simply going to continue to climb (No matter the political affiliation of the Presidents or Politicians in each administration), until they can be propped up no more.

The website taxfoundation.org notes “The share of income earned by the top 1 percent of taxpayers fell to 19.0 percent in 2013. Their share of federal income taxes fell slightly to 37.8 percent”

In some 2015 findings:

The top 1% income earners have nearly a 20% share of Adjusted Gross Income.

Out of 100% of a pie, the top 1% of 2015 American taxpayers paid nearly 38% of the total tax bill.

According to the IRS Statistics of Income, Individual and Tax Share for 2015:

A. The top 5% of income earners in America 2015 paid more than 56% of total income taxes collected for 2015.

To show a blinding contrast:

B. The bottom 50% of income earners in America 2015, paid less than 3% of total income taxes collected for the same year.

Mid-Statistic:

So the Liberal Leftists want the top income earners to pay “more” so the top income earner’s “fair share” is even higher than it is currently, thus reducing the weight on those of more “modest” means?

This is the virus demanding more of its host in a quicker time frame; eventually, killing its host, and itself.

The top 25% of income earners in America 2015, paid more than 86% of all income tax revenue

Let’s rejoin our hypothetical 21% universally applied income tax; comparing this taxation rate with our 2 (A and B) examples above, who’s taking home more money, and who’s going to get sucker punched?

Basic math here will also show you the Federal Government would have collected far less in revenue (oops, taxes) overall; including far less from the top income earners, but exponentially more from those in the lower income brackets. After doing this, you’re still increasing your yearly deficit, which gets tacked onto the National Debt, and this goes on year in and year out.

In comparison to these 2015 figures, you can see why the Federal Government could never agree to such an overall low Fair or Flat, income tax rate of 21%. They’d be even deeper in debt each year; and eventually, that system is going to collapse.

With 25% of the country already footing 86% of the income tax bill, how much more “fair” could this be possibly made, without reducing overall revenues? It can’t.

The Liberal Leftists need to shut up about any “fair share” because the only “fair share” they’re actually interested in, is somebody else’s fair share of the bill, while (under their own systems) their own majority would be paying in even less than they currently are doing.

Simple Economics elude the average Liberal Leftist: it’s not so much basic math that they do not understand, but it is in accepting the realization of what the numbers not only do say, but how that affects all their given “special interests” preferences.

The balancing of an income tax system is tricky enough, but always seeking to punish those who earn more, only causes the producers themselves (Investors, Manufacturers, Owners, Share-Holders and Management) to raise prices on their goods and services, so their profit margins aren’t negatively affected, but your purchase power takes another hit.

The “Fair Share” Myth, is simply a lie.

Why Carry a Gun? By Johnnelle Raines

I found this on the internet, it’s just too good not to share; and I won’t bother with any added commentary, as it’s simply not needed here.

Why Carry a Gun?

My old Grandpa said to me, ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.’

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!!!!

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

· SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

· SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

· IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

·
I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you’re not a believer, please reconsider the true facts. This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.

Accepting Mid-Term results

The quiet civility of a Republican loss of the House demonstrates a strength; and weakness, within the collective “right”.

Had the Republicans maintained control of the House, I have no doubt that several people would have died, and our collective streets would wreak of protests, violence, personal and property damage, etc…

Notwithstanding our own “violent extremists” in the political “Right”, the majority of Republicans are extremely conservative in matters of the use of violence, to achieve our goals.

This is not exclusive to some Republican or Conservative named collection of people; nor is this an exclusively American phenomenon, as world history shows this to be one of mankind’s most oft-repeated cycles.

Imagine two great armies, meeting each other on a field of battle, on a raised platform of earth, 900 feet above the ground.

The average political right will allow those on the opposite side, to push us right up to the very edge of our complete demise; and that is one reason why history records thousands of cases where a generally politically peaceful people, get pushed too far, then retaliate with severe repercussions.

We’ll try, and try, and try, and try, to appease the whining minority, but they eventually reach a point of transitioning from being a people demanding special rights in the name of equal rights, to being in a majority position and pursuing revenge against their opponent.

Such “cycles” that exist and repeat through history, are some of the greatest tools mankind has for knowing what works, and what doesn’t.

The sheer lack of education learned from studying the absolute plethora of examples recorded in history, is why we often hear “those who don’t know/study the past, are doomed to repeat it”; and the most disheartening thing about this reality, is that they doom the rest of mankind, through their ignorance and lack of education on such an abundant library of information.

Again, this is another aspect of/in all that is R.A.F.O.N.

This continuous rise and fall of nations, is not something mankind can erase, but with an educated mindset of such things that do repeat so often, the masses could better themselves overall, if they’d simply heed the warning sings, before the parasites of time, arise once more, to eviscerate their host.

We’re not out in the streets rioting, looting, etc… but another viscous cycle has the pendulum of time, swinging towards a reckoning of those who mistake meekness, for weakness.

I’m not prophesying anything here; nor am I calling for a violent revolution of the collective right, against the collective left, but as a long time student of world history, the next “Cull” is coming, and it won’t be stopped.

A Post Slavery America? – Does it exist?

An investigative beginning of all things R.A.F.O.N. (Rise And Fall Of Nations)

Elements exist within the matrix framework that is R.A.F.O.N.; whereby the government itself, not only facilitates crime among the citizenry, but imports even more crime as domestic crime decreases.

It is well established those factions of the Alphabet Gang within the United States Government: FBI, CIA, DHS, NSA, DOJ, etc… instigate, fund and facilitate crimes all across the country, in addition to our foreign entanglements.

The inner-cities are the ripest ground for the easiest prey, because the poorest communities often offer the most plagued with opportunists: whether for drugs, guns, prostitution and other human trafficking, or even gang related crime.

America’s Government history of instigating, funding and facilitating crimes in these areas is well documented; from the crack epidemic, to random weapons and ammunition drop-offs at 3:00 in the morning, the inner-cities are America’s greatest cash crop to keep the courts, and for-profit jails and prisons, packed beyond capacity.

Every identity demographic (Race, Ethnicity, Religion, Sex, Sexual preference, Social status, Income, Political affiliation, etc…) that can be imagined, is further reduced to minority numbers of “victims” of any flavor: this tactic is widely used in the slavery institute and trade. I say “is” because as much as mankind has progressed as a whole against this evil institution, slavery still exists in numerous parts of the world.

Plantation Politics is best understood in how you pit one “group” against “another”, in order to assert greater control over the masses. Within the slave trade, darker slaves and light skinned slaves are pitted against each other; older and younger are pitted against one another, weaker against stronger, males and females pitted against each other, and the house slaves pitted against the field slaves.

Though the outright buying and selling of humans has been eradicated in the west, slavery itself was not altogether abolished, but was merely transformed into economic slavery; and for the greater overall population, versus the tiny minority that were actually involved in the slave trade.
