Liberals think taxes are too low

November 29, 2013

Ever notice, fellow taxpayers, how liberals are quick to inform us we’re not sending enough of our hard-earned dollars to Charleston and Washington? It’s happening again in West Virginia....

I am a liberal and I disagree wholeheartedly with the premise of this piece - including the title. Taxes are certainly not too low, but priorities are completely out of whack. My earlier post alluded to this, but let me just say that a federal budget is a moral document and the values we claim to cherish are either upheld of mocked when we begin writing checks. I would much rather invest in education, training, and the arts for our children's future than pouring generations of tax dollars into corporate entitlement programs. I would rather see investments in infrastructure than bloated defense spending designed not to protect our country but to soak up billions of tax dollars in no-bid contracts by Halliburton, Lockheed Martin, and the like. I would rather see energy subsidies going to help pay for those who are shivering in the cold tonight than massive tax giveaways to oil companies in exchange for votes on election day.

While Republicans seek to cut spending of social programs that help save the least among us, they work overtime to preserve the Bush-era entitlement programs for the wealthy. Cutting spending is a good idea - but let's cut it where it needs to be cut - massive subsidies for oil companies, farm subsidies for corporate farms, a swollen defense budget hidden from view, etc. Haven't we had enough corporate robbery of our national treasure in the last 8 years? Imagine how much universal single-payer health care coverage that would provide!

Typical liberal answer to every problem.

Don't hold your breathe waiting for democrats to cut their habitual spending habits instead of punishing citizens with more and higher taxes. They don't care about the people; only how much more $$$ they can get from YOU!

Stop voting democrats in office. Do you like all these taxes?

LOL. Dems are losing big time over their tax, tax and tax response to every problem.


First thing Governor Tomblin does? Give himself a RAISE! Search and just see how many times this liberal jerk has given himself and his other clowns big pay raises while only giving the citizens' TAX raises!!!

`` From the extent of our country, its diversified interests, different pursuits, and different habits, it is too obvious for argument that a single consolidated government would be wholly inadequate to watch over and protect its interests; and every friend of our free institutions should be always prepared to maintain unimpaired and in full vigor the rights and sovereignty of the States and to confine the action of the General Government strictly to the sphere of its appropriate duties."

Jackson was the first, and LAST, president to PAY OFF THE NATIONAL DEBT. Sadly, that was 175 years ago. The Fed has rigged the system so that they get paid interest BEFORE Social Security and veterans hospitals are funded.

WAKE UP AMERICANS--YOU HAVE BEEN GETTING LEGALLY SCAMMED FOR THE PAST 100 YEARS! Their use of Jackson on $20 note is a MOCKERY, NOT AN HONOR! Learn about his legacy they've been suppressing!

`` Every attempt to exercise power beyond these limits should be promptly and firmly opposed, for one evil example will lead to other measures still more mischievous; and if the principle of constructive powers or supposed advantages or temporary circumstances shall ever be permitted to justify the assumption of a power not given by the Constitution, the General Government will before long absorb all the powers of legislation, and you will have in effect but one consolidated government..."

Ahem... from the liberal perspective, as much as they take, it's NEVER ENOUGH!

The American people would do well to heed these TIMELESS WORDS OF WISDOM from President Jackson's Farewell Address:

``It is well known that there have always been those amongst us who wish to enlarge the powers of the General Government, and experience would seem to indicate that there is a tendency on the part of this Government to overstep the boundaries marked out for it by the Constitution. Its legitimate authority is abundantly sufficient for all the purposes for which it was created, and its powers being expressly enumerated, there can be no justification for claiming anything beyond them...'
