I make a middle-class income. I never even have come close to making as much money as such rich, liberal tax-increasers as Arnold Schwarzenegger, George H.W. Bush (the first one), President Obama, Gov. Jerry Brown, etc.
I figure about 50 percent of my income goes taxes. And regulations chew up about another 20 percent of my income. I spend many hours filling out tax forms. And the regulations jack up the cost of medical, car and apartment insurance.
So that leaves me only about 30 percent of what I produce for my own uses, including charity. Indeed, I find that most of my charity nowadays goes to repair the damage to others done by government itself.
I’ve “shared” enough with the parasites in government.
That includes the California government, the worst, most wasteful and highest-taxing among the 50 states.
Yet now President Obama, who is rich even though he’s only held government or policy jobs his whole life, says I’m supposed to “share” more. In a speech in his home base, the totally corrupt city of Chicago, he said:
“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go? Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared? Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?”
Actually, his spendthrift, high-waste, high deficit, high-debt policies are almost identical to those of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who “got us in this mess in the first place.” Hope? Change? We haven’t seen any.
“Shared” prosperity means that, of what little already is left of what I produce, he and the other fat-cat politicians take even more to fill their own personal and political coffers.
V.P. Joe Biden is another politician who came to Washington, D.C., with little money, but now is a multi-millionaire.
And Gov. Jerry Brown never has worked outside of government or policy. Yet he’s filthy rich because his father made oil-industry legal deals with the dictatorship in Indonesia. Yet Jerry wants to grab more of my money!
I doubt if Romney-Ryan would do much, if anything, to change the underlying nature of robbing government should they be elected.
This is a bandit government.
