The GOP Tax Plan Is More Democrat than Conservative

More conservative than Reagan


+
The GOP, led by the lying Republicrats Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, are about to screw America with their tax plan, both in the short and long term.

The Republicans have a historic opportunity to dismantle the democrat, Marxist/socialist/communist agenda, setting it back at least a generation. They have the presidency, control of both houses of congress, 33 governorships, and have gained thousands of state level seats under the eight years of Obama. They have the ability and authority to institute a tax plan that is constitutional and conservative without a single democrat vote, but time after time they continue to cave to the democrats, screwing Americans in the process.

The GOP should be slashing taxes, preferably enacting something like a LOW FLAT TAX with NO deductions so that EVERYONE has a stake in our government. Instead, they are INCREASING the numbers of people who pay ZERO taxes, yet these people also consume the most in government resources, AND they get to vote to receive even more.

The GOP, if they are the conservative champions of the Constitution like they claim they are, would be slashing unconstitutional spending that would would make tax cuts very easy. They would also be dismantling government agencies wholesale. Close the Department of Education and return education to the states. Dismantle the Department of Energy that has done a grand total of nothing to ensure our energy independence while costing us hundreds of billions of dollars. With a FLAT TAX and zero deductions, and a ONE PAGE TAX CODE, there would no longer be a need for the IRS, whose sole reason for existence is to use the tax code as a weapon against citizens and political opponents.

The American citizen does not exist to give the government whatever it wants.

With a few exceptions, the GOP has effectively become the Republican wing of the democrat party. They do not fundamentally disagree with the democrats on the size, scope, and role of government. They just want to be the ones in charge of it. And every time Republicans gain a mandate from the conservative electorate, they squander it by caving into the democrats. We now effectively have one party rule in America.

This is something that elections won’t fix.

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency. 

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault. 

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve tried that.  Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions. 

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community. 

I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing. 

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it. 

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it. 

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played.  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then.  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property.  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is what the Left wants.

Do Black Lives Matter?

It is your job to determine if this is a racist rant or just a review of factual data…

WHAT IF ALL THE BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:

Amount of people in poverty would drop – 34%,

The prison population would go down by -37%,

Welfare recipients would go down by – – – 42%,

Gang members would go down by – – – – – 53%

Average SAT scores would go UP almost – – – – -100 points,

The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year,

BUT DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!!

And, many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!

Yes, Black lives DO matter!

Is America Now a Failed Socialist State?

Are we a failed socialist state

More than 100 Million Gun Owners Did NOT Kill Anyone Today, but Abortion Doctors Did ⋆ Constitution.com

Why is it that we correctly see one nut with a gun killing 59 people as horrific, but shrug our shoulders at one “doctor” with a scalpel who kills THOUSANDS of babies? Why aren’t 55 MILLION dead babies since Roe v. Wade making America sick to its collective stomach? What about blacks, who were/are SPECIFICALLY targeted by the eugenicists who brought us abortion? You would think that blacks would be doing everything they could to end abortion since it is being used to eliminate them BECAUSE they are black.

Using the “logic” of the left, shouldn’t we be banning scalpels?

Trying to Put a Pretty Face On an Ugly Party

Tulsi Gabbard on Tucker Carlson

“We, as the American people, should be concerned when any president of the United States launches an illegal and unconstitutional military strike against a foreign government.  This is something congress has not authorized, and it’s an escalation of a counterproductive regime-change war in Syria that our country has been waging for years.  First for many years through the CIA covertly, and now overtly through President Trump’s reckless military strike last night.” –Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat (HI)

While I am still not so sure that striking Syria at this time was such a good idea, I am sure that the democrat response, and specifically the response of Tulsi Gabbard who seems to represent the views of most democrats on this issue, is one of outright hypocrisy.  Despite her relatively attractive external appearance, she is just as dark and intellectually bankrupt on the inside as the rest of the democrat party.

Perhaps you remember one Barack Hussein Obama committing US forces to combat in Libya to support rebels seeking to overthrow the government of Libya.  There was no legitimate US interest in overthrowing Muammar Gaddafi, who had kept to himself since nearly being killed by Ronald Reagan in Operation El Dorado Canyon, and in fact had actually been cooperating with us by providing intelligence on terrorist organizations and activities.  Yet Barack Obama sided with the rebels seeking to overthrow Gaddafi, violating the War Powers Act by not receiving approval from congress within the required time, or at all.  In doing so, Obama fanned the flames of what came to be known as the “Arab Spring,” which ultimately destabilized the ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST, and created what became ISIS.

In Gabbard’s revised history, did she or the democrats say the American people should have been concerned when Barack Obama launched an illegal and unconstitutional military strike against a foreign government?  No.  No, they did not.  In fact, she completely left out Obama’s and the democrats involvement in destabilizing the middle east, and waging a war to overthrow Bashar Assad, who was of no threat to America.

There are a number of reasons why striking Syria right now may not have been the best idea.  There is the possibility Russia may have been responsible for the chemical weapon strike instead of Syria.  If the Syrians performed the strike, why did they have chemical weapons at all, since Obama supposedly arranged for Russia to take all of Syria’s chemical weapons in a brokered deal following Obama’s multiple “red lines” which he never enforced.  Shouldn’t Russia have to answer these questions?  Then there is the possibility that we could have accidentally hit the Russians in Syria, leading to war between us and Russia, which we are not prepared for.

So many reasons NOT to strike Syria.  But we did strike them, and in doing so have ONCE AGAIN exposed the intellectual dishonesty of the democrat party, and the liberal left in America.

Rep. Gabbard: Syria missile strike ‘illegal and unconstitutional’

Published April 07, 2017

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday that the American missile strike on a Syrian airfield as “an illegal and unconstitutional military strike” that drew the United States closer to military conflict with Russia.
Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, also said the strike was “an escalation of a counterproductive regime change war in Syria that our country’s been waging for years, first through the CIA covertly, and now overtly.”
FLASHBACK: GABBARD SAYS SHE MET WITH ASSAD DURING SYRIA TRIP
In January, Gabbard met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus. When host Tucker Carlson asked if she believed Assad’s forces to be responsible for the chemical weapons attack that precipitated the missile strikes, Gabbard answered, “It doesn’t matter what I believe or not. What matters is evidence and facts.
“If the Trump administration has the evidence, unequivocally proving this, then share it with the American people,” Gabbard continued. “Share it with Congress. Come to Congress and make your case before launching an unauthorized, illegal military strike against a foreign government.
“Gabbard also said that efforts to overthrow Assad would only strengthen extremist groups, and expressed concerns about Moscow’s response to the missile strikes.
“Russia … are very closely allied with Syria and … have their own military operating [on] the ground there,” the congresswoman said, “and when you consider the consequences of that, the United States and Russia being the two nuclear powers in the world, it should be a cause of great concern for everyone.”

The Enemy Within

How many times do I have to say it?  McCarthy was RIGHT.  Communism is diametrically opposed to the values that founded America, and we USED TO fight to keep communism OUT of America.  Now we not only DON’T fight it any more, we are VOTING FOR IT.

Make no mistake, the ideology that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the democrat party, and those identifying as “progressives” in America are pushing communism, or a stepping stone to it.  The ignorant among us look as someone like Bernie Sanders and think he’s just a nice old man.  But the ideology he openly espouses, socialism, is merely communism with out the force.  In the Russian communist revolution, you had two major camps.  The Mensheviks, and the Bolsheviks.  They both wanted the same things, but the Mensheviks thought it could and should be achieved at the ballot box, while the Bolsheviks had no problem using force to achieve their goals.  In today’s America, the socialist democrats are the Mensheviks, and “progressives” are the Bolsheviks.

What do the communists want?  Control.  Centralized government control of basically everything.  They sell a Utopian view of equality, but it is a smoke screen.  There will be two classes.  The ruling class that is all powerful and very well off, and everyone else.  Everyone else will be poor and miserable.  Communist Russia, the Soviet Union, was the model for what we can expect.  Venezuela is a more modern example.

To achieve their desired goals, the communists will stop at nothing.  They will cozy up to enemies in order to destroy other enemies, then betray the enemies they were cozying up to.  You can see this happening right now as the communist progressive left is trying to destroy Christianity.  They are cozying up to muslims and selling islam as a good thing, using it as one of many hammers to strike against Christianity.  Once they have destroyed Christianity, they will turn on muslims, and any other religion.  Under communism, there can be no religion other than the government.  Worship of anything other than government can not be tolerated.  They have used the same strategy with blacks in America for decades.  They have promised blacks the moon and stars in exchange for their vote, but delivered none of the promises.  Now they are abandoning blacks for the newest protected class of Hispanics and illegal aliens.  They see that flooding the nation with these people will achieve their goals more quickly than they could be achieved using blacks.  Too bad that such a small percentage of blacks in America can see this for what it actually is.  Same with gays, transgenders, and any other faction group that the left tries to split us into.  The communist progressives see you as nothing other than a tool to dismantle America as we once knew it.

The bottom line is this.  As a nation we have reached a T-intersection.  We can turn left, and follow the communists to sure destruction, or we can turn right and try to salvage what’s left of the American way, and return to opportunity and prosperity.  A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for that left turn, and a vote for destruction.  You may not like Trump, and I’m not a big fan, but at this point is the only viable opportunity to prevent that hard left turn.  Keep these things in mind as you go to the polls on November 8th.  A vote for Hillary, Stein, Johnson, or McMullen is a vote for that hard left turn.  The vote for Hillary needs no explanation.  But a vote for any of the other three is a wasted vote because none of them has a chance at getting elected.  McMullen sounds like a much better choice than Hillary, but has no chance beyond the borders of Utah.  Johnson and Stein are both for open borders, and would be almost as disastrous as Hillary.  Trump may say “mean things,” but has surrounded himself with good people and has at least a chance of making a positive impact on America.  If you’re a “never Trumper,” you own Hillary Clinton if she gets elected.  That includes the RINOs like the Bush family, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and a host of others calling themselves “Republicans” who are quietly supporting Hillary.

Hillary Clinton: America’s Most Dangerous Enemy Within

From Florida, I flew out to Reno to entertain at the 2016 Nevada Women’s Expo. In between my shows, I made pit-stops in my hotel room. Folks, I could hardly believe what I was seeing. Every news TV channel I turned to was beating the crap out of Trump trying to brand him an abuser of women. Leaked Hillary emails have revealed that the mainstream media gets its marching orders from the Clinton campaign.

Thus, the media fix is in: portray Trump in a red hoodie with a pitchfork; portray wicked-crooked Hillary as angelic, wearing a pure white flowing gown. Never have I seen such a shock-and-awe orchestrated media campaign to demonize a candidate. Continue reading

The Culture Of The Smug White Liberal

While I think Ms. Johnson-Huston is blinded to her community’s culpability for their current situation, I must give her credit for waking up to the futile nature of continuing to blindly support a party and ideology that has given blacks nothing but empty promises for the last 50+ years.  She still seems to be under the illusion that the high rates of crime, murder, drug use, single-parent homes, unemployment, and incarceration within the black community are somehow SOMEONE ELSE’S fault.  Actually, the vast majority of their problems stem from the abandonment of personal responsibility.  Who you vote for is a personal choice.  Doing drugs is a personal choice.  Having sex is a personal choice if you’re a human being.  Committing crime is a personal choice.  Disrespecting your parents is a personal choice.  Disobeying an order from the police is a personal choice.  Burning down businesses that provide both goods and jobs is, you guessed it, a personal choice.

While it is heartening to see black liberals waking up to the fact that democrats have been playing them for chumps, it is also disheartening to see that many still can’t see that their personal choices are what have gotten them where they are today.

Emphasis/bolding added below is by me.

The Culture Of The Smug White Liberal

08/17/2016 03:16 pm ET | Updated Aug 28, 2016

Nikki Johnson-Huston, Esq. Award-Winning Tax Attorney, Entrepreneur, Donafy App Co-Founder, Motivational Speaker and Advocate for the Poor

I have spent my life as a Democrat which probably isn’t that surprising considering that I am African-American. One of the things that always attracted me to the party were the ideals of equality, fighting for the little guy and our openness to differing opinions, but lately I have seen my party take a turn that makes me uncomfortable. Somewhere along the way we stopped fighting for the little guy and became the party of the smug, educated elites who look down on those with less education and deem them unable or unworthy of being able to make personal decisions for their own lives.

Over the last few years we have made incredible strides in diversity and inclusion, from the election twice of the nation’s first African-American President to the legalization of gay marriage, all things that I have loudly and happily cheered for and felt were a long time in coming. As an African-American professional from humble beginnings, I know firsthand the importance of giving everyone an equal opportunity to access the American Dream. I don’t take lightly the opportunities I have been given or the fact that many people, black and white, fought for and sometimes died for me to have these rights. I also have serious concerns about the lack of progress that I have seen for many African-Americans and I blame some of that lack of progress on ineffective liberal policies that are based upon wanting to help those in need, but in many instances end up causing more harm than good.
