I’m going to share this AGAIN. It’s just that necessary.
As one views news in America, it matters little where you seek, when all are sharing pictures and videos, of an America, on-fire.
Make no mistake about it, an overwhelming majority of the mayhem and devastation that Americans are witnessing right here in our own backyards is fully orchestrated and funded by some of the wealthiest people and corporations in America, and on the earth. Read more “This is R.A.F.O.N.”
Do you know why history records no successful long-term “Socialist” Empires? Because none have ever existed.
As time’s pendulum swings, the Builders and Destroyers take turns. Societies, Kingdoms, and Empires arise because the Builders desire beauty, comfort, and ease.
The Destroyers are those who lust after what others create: as the virus they are, they attach themselves to the host, drain the life from them, and then toss them aside.Read more “Remember R.A.F.O.N.”
Illegal immigration isn’t new by any standards, but its primary uses should bother us just as much.
For purposes of this article, this has nothing to do with anyone who uses the system as designed, to become legal immigrants.
Having never experienced a need to flee a country due to political persecution, many of our friends on the Left believe that means I have no right to speak on the topic. Neither has any living Congress Member, had to flee political persecution in a foreign country!
That kind of logic wouldn’t allow a rapist a jury of their peers, unless the jurors were all rapists or rape victims.
While being extremely cognizant of those fleeing towards America for a better life; I still say, do it legally. There are no less than 9 places throughout Mexico where prospective immigrants can apply for asylum to America.
While the average idiot Leftist supporter on the street is completely oblivious to this (not that it would matter at all in reality), those who are pulling the strings of the Leftist hordes, are well aware of it.
Why would thousands of people “walk” more than 2,000 miles to California, instead of “walking” a little over 1,200 to Brownsville, Texas?
Because that was the planned destination from the beginning. California is well known for its share of Sanctuary Cities; and what a tremendous media firestorm this “Caravan” has been.
You had American Corporations involved with providing these fine folks with food, water, transportation, clothing, cash, cell phones; and champagne wishes and caviar dream.
This was orchestrated to be all it has been, and more. International Billionaire Liberal George Soros is well-entrenched in this as well, but he is far from alone.
I’m all for the “Wall” in addition to the war-chest of other methods employed to curb illegal immigration.
I do not believe funding the “Wall” is a real issue; its total costs are dwarfed by the sheer drain these illegals (who aren’t here to work, assimilate, etc…) do place on the country, but I question the will of Congress, to actually do it.
Though any numbers offered would be disputed by countless parties, I’m going to show a simple scenario.
A report prepared by the Democratic staff of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (2017) estimated this wall would cost 70 billion to construct, with another 150 million per year to maintain.
According to “The Federation for American Immigration Reform” the estimated yearly costs of illegal immigrants is about 134 billion per year.
Also according to “The Federation for American Immigration Reform” millions of illegals work all over America; and those that do, who are not attempting to hide, pay 19+ billion per year in Local, State and Federal taxes.
This is how simple math escapes the minds of fools and idiots.
Total cost of illegal immigrants = 134 billion per year
Let’s credit their tax contributions towards this yearly cost.
New yearly cost of illegal immigrants = 134 – 19 = 115 billion
Can you do simple math? That’s how simple works from a purely economic standpoint.
Build Wall – 70 billion
1 Year later = Savings of 50+ billion, with the wall paid for; followed by a yearly savings of that 115 billion.
115 billion yearly surplus – 150 million per year maintenance = a No-Brainer.
Imagine the ways the Local/State and Federal Governments could mismanage such a “yearly” windfall.
Trying to even imagine the real numbers, is a fools errand, so examples will have to suffice.
Again, this Wall should not be seen by anyone, as something that will stop illegal immigration 100%; that’s merely an empty argument. At minimum, it would greatly curb it, and cost the tax-payers a lot less.
So our Local, State and Federal taxing agencies could save 115 billion dollars per year; with all the government waste that exists, why would they not want to pull this 115 billion in and continue to spend like drunken sailors?
It is simply because this constant influx of illegal immigration simply pays more, in numerous ways. Human, Sex, Guns and Drug Trafficking, being key.
My top reasons why Congress and our Government; and States, don’t actually want this wall?
Government Distractions – Keep the masses occupied while government continues robbing and molesting us for generations to come.
Cheap Labor – Need to keep that 19 billion coming in per year; and growing, so they’ll always have this crutch to lean on.
Media/Mass Programming – Every day, we’re all being told what to think, believe, feel, fear, honor, eat, buy, wear and drive, even about illegal immigration and this particular Caravan from Honduras.
Liberal Votes – This answers itself
Without a porous southern Border in America, the Democrat Party would be dead inside 1-2 generations: though again, their myriads of followers are oblivious for the most part, those running the show (Their Leaders/Movers/Shakers, etc)… absolutely know this, which is why they work so hard to keep illegal alien, sanctuary cities and border issues, constantly in the news and social media.
Allow me to restate this:
Build the Wall? Absolutely; and from Coast to Coast, but serious efforts are also needed, to prevent any/all American citizens, groups, corporations, etc. (Foreign or Domestic)…………………….from furthering this fiasco.
Criminal charges at minimum.

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.
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.
