Your Liberty is Defined by Liberals

dtalley Wrote: Dec 28, 2012 10:00 AM
Liberty defined by liberals can be described as, 'Less is better.' It's easier for them to control and better for us- keeps us manageable and less cluttered in our lives if we will just submit to their philosophy of helping us. Read more at: www.valuesofamerica.com
It is impossible to hide from the truth. When we allow the State to take, no matter the justification, we lose our rights. It is our right to give, not the state's right to take. That is the same value embraced in religion and why the church is always attacked by government. When states had complete control over the lives of its residents, the only place to flee was America. When England attempted to tighten its control over the colonists, it led to the inevitable revolt that created the utopia of liberty, the United States. Where do we flee to now?

Time to offer real reform. Create a two tier flat tax at 35% and 15% and starve government. Cut the SS tax contribution- which is really just a plain tax and the Medicare tax. Cut corporate tax to 17%, with no deductions. This will force Dems to scream for higher taxes. Can't be bad for the Republicans and the country. www.valuesofamerica.com
Put the ball back in the Dems court. Propose a 2 tier flat tax, 35 for those making over $250k and 15% for the rest with only two deductions- mortgages less than $250k and charitable deducs. Reagan said the only sure way to reform government is to starve it. Make the Dems scream for more revenue. Our freedom depends on government not being the integral part of the economy and our lives. We are not suppose to serve it. read more at: www.valuesofamerica.com

Are employers being driven to cheaper employees and less of them because government has increased operating costs by regulations? Most industries would hope for a 10% profit margin, but many are squeezed to about 3%. When gov't demands more, something else has to be cut or the business closes. I recently spoke to one restaurant owner with 22 employees who has received his notice from the US gov't that deductions for his workers will be going up to 15% come January. He works 90 hours and more per week and says he needs every worker he has but he doesn't know how he will be able to make a profit- and he has one of the busiest restaurants in town. see more at: www.valuesofamerica.com

Revolutionary thoughts. America had a moment of self doubt during the Great Depression when 25% of the workforce was unemployed, which with the norm of one wage earner families meant 25% of the families faced ruin. As detailed by Amity Shlaes in "The Forgotten Man", the Great Depression became so by the political meddling of DC, Roosevelt and the Democratic Party's desire to be relevant and drive to be a necessity to as many voters as possible. It still continues on. Read more on: www.valuesofamerica.com

Government Gone Bad

Mexico has as many natural resources as the U.S. but has always been poorer. The key lies in the cultural structure allowing government to be dominant protecting the interests of the few from the liberty of choice. 40 yrs ago, a middle class man in Mexico told me that the people of Mexico would revolt from their government except the government had managed to restrict access to guns, medicine and food. So people were just fighting to stay alive or flee to another country so to support those left behind. In this void of respect for law, the criminal drug gangs were the only able to gain the resources to threaten the government's power. It doesn't offer much hope for Mexico and could offer a glimpse of what we face. www.valuesofamerica.com

Richer countries have more time and resources to focus on liberties and protecting ourselves from government. Could that be why the Dems focus on making us poorer? When surviving becomes a full time struggle, who has time to fight government? Read more at: www.valuesofamerica.com

Socialism, Capitalism Top Ten Words

You missed a point. The nation does not provide any of these things. Provision requires money. You require money for your food, for rent or mortgage, etc. All of the above benefits of society comes directly from businesses creating profits, "sustainability", or indirectly from taxation. Either way, unless the business owner/investor has an expectation of profit or he will stay home with his money in a bank. Nobody is in business with the sole hope of breaking even.

Popular sentiment has tried to make "sustainability" a code word for environmentalism, but the truth is sustainability is the key to capitalism. Every small business owner, every worker seeks to invest their time and capital in a business that will last, as far into the future as possible. Even those investing in the buggie whip business in 1900 did so thinking the new automobile industry would have no long term effect on their futures. Now government tries to manage all parts of the economy making businesses have to spend more capital on satisfying government than consumers, a business model doomed to fail. www.valuesofamerica.com

No nation on earth achieved greatness without being able to feed itself.
