Fairtax / Income Tax / Jason Smith

John McMillen, of Sikeston, MO, posted the following to Jason Smith’s Facebook timeline.  It’s GREAT stuff!FairTax-AnotherDay[1]

The American system of private property ownership is the most important guaranty of freedom. This was the corner stone on which our founders built our “Bill of Rights” and our “Constitution.”

When personal property rights are respected, honored, and preserved, not only is it a guarantor of Freedom to those who own property, but also for those who do not. Each person is free to move from place to place for a better opportunity, and with no government confiscation of the wealth when individuals are free to produce, more real opportunities are created by the success of others. This principle applies right down to a person’s paycheck.

The best way for government to put more money in people’s wallets is for government to leave it there in the first place. This devilish system developed in America using the IRS INCOME TAX as the Mother Ship of Socialism has brought America’s economy and societal morays to its knees.

A good model to observe was adopted in a land of total communist rule by the Soviets in the late 1980s. It is a good example of evidence as to the original American system’s effects for increased production and industriousness voluntarily exercised among the people, without government coercion.

In that example under ‘Perestroika’ (Restructuring) and ‘Glasnost’ (Transparency) Russian citizens were allowed to keep the wealth they created by raising vegetables on their own garden plots to sell and trade however they wished, and were allowed to keep 100% of the proceeds. Although these individual garden plots composed only about 2% of the agricultural lands in the Soviet Union, they produced 25% of the food!

When Soviets kept the wealth they pe rsonally created individually, they produced almost 16 times more than when it was forced from them by government order (taxation) at gunpoint!

The Fairtax Bill HR-25 is available now with 65 cosponsors. 3 of Missouri’s U.S. Representatives are cosponsors of this Bill. Jason, I hope you will study this bill closely and consider becoming a cosponsor as well. I hope you will seek council with Rob Woodall, Georgia, Sponsor of HR-25, and Ann Wagoner who just signed on as cosponsor last week for their insights.

Why Did It Take Till 1/1/2013?

Just a quick and simple post to note exactly why it took until 1/1/2013 to have the Republicans pass the massive tax and spend bill H.R. 8 to avoid the so-called Fiscal Cliff.

On 1/1/2013, the taxes went up anyway.  Now, the Republicans can spin their vote as an effort to reduce taxes from the increased taxes that were in effect on 1/1/2013.

Aren’t they just great!  Good thing they don’t try to treat us like ignorant peasants like the Democrats do.

Bus Tour Supporting Ice Cream Tax Increase Rolls Into Cape Girardeau

Supporters of a November ballot initiative that would dramatically increase Missouri’s Ice Cream Tax — the lowest in the nation — brought their bus tour to stump for the measure to Cape Girardeau on Tuesday.

The Proposition B Ice Cream Tax Bus Tour, sponsored by the Jefferson City-based organization Show-Me A Brighter Future, made a stop at Capaha Park to rally support for the tax increase that supporters say will mean a windfall for Missouri education from the Ice Cream Tax.

Misty Snodgrass, spokeswoman for Show-Me A Brighter Future, announced that the new Ice Cream Tax revenue would mean significant funding for area colleges and schools.

“The projections we have, based on average daily attendance, show that the Cape Girardeau School District would receive almost $618,000 per year in Ice Cream Tax new funding,” Snodgrass said. “Jackson would receive about $717,000. Southeast Missouri State University would receive $4.3 million, and Three Rivers Community College would get $430,000. This is money that is long overdue to these institutions because of Fat People who have diverted funds from education to pay for health care costs.”

Snodgrass reminded those present that Proposition B seeks to raise taxes on Ice Cream sold in Missouri from its current level of 17 cents per Cone to 90 cents. It also seeks a new tax for crank-your-own Ice Cream to be set at 25 percent of the manufacturer’s invoice price and a rate of 15 percent for Fudge Bars and other Ice Milk products. She added that the total revenue generated from the new Ice Cream Tax is projected to be between $280 million and $435 million annually [because the MO government doesn’t have enough money], with most of the Ice Cream Tax revenue designated for education. Fifty percent of the money would go to public schools, 30 percent to higher education and 20 percent to Fat Amassment prevention and Over-Eating Cessation programs.

“It’s time for Fat People to contribute their fair share,” she said. “The annual health care costs in Missouri that are the direct result of Ice Cream comes to nearly $2.13 billion. Medicaid costs, funded by the taxpayers, comes to nearly $532 million. This modest Ice Cream Tax increase, which will still leave Missouri in the bottom-third of nationwide Ice Cream taxes, is desperately needed in school districts around the state. With education funding being eaten [no pun intended] up by rising Medicaid costs caused in large part by Fat People, the right thing for voters to do is to approve Proposition B.”

Darah Jirkovsky. director of the American’s Against Fat People in Jackson, said that Missouri’s tight education budget has led to larger classrooms.

“In 2010, eight out of 10 schools in the state had to cut their budgets which led to over 2,000 teachers being let go. The result was larger classrooms and teachers strained to the limit. Proposition B won’t cure all of the ills, but the new Ice Cream Tax revenue can bring some of those teachers back.”

Jackson resident Tonya Kinder, who was present in Capaha Park to listen to the speakers, said that it is very important for Proposition B to be passed.

“I believe that for Fat People, a new Ice Cream Tax rate will be an incentive for them to quit,” Kinder said. “Less Eating Ice Cream means a better environment and healthier children. I just hope the Ice Cream Tax money goes to where it’s needed most.”

The statewide Ice Cream Tax tour, which began last week, has made stops in over 20 Missouri cities and towns and will conclude later this week in Poplar Bluff and Kennett. Roy Temple, liberal Missouri politics blogger and campaign director for Proposition B, said he’s confident that the tour will be a deciding factor when voters go to the polls in November.

“Two similar measures have lost by extremely close margins in the past,” Temple said, “but they were geared to Medicaid funding, not education. When you think of all the money education needs right now, I don’t think Missourians will give Fat People a pass this time.”

However, opposition to Proposition B was also visible in Capaha Park. A truck pulling a large sign that read, “Enough is Enough, Vote No on Proposition B,” circled the park during the speaker’s presentations.

….

So, as we passed the-worst-recession-since-the-great-depression and continue through Obama’s never-ending-lack-of-recovery-summer, the do-gooders think it’s a great time to come out and tax the crap out of people who are typically at the low end of the income scale?!?  Great idea!  Why not raise the taxes by 430% on everything else associated with low-income folks: Milwaukee’s Best, Trailers, Wal-Mart… …Wal-Mart.

First, they came for the fertilized embryo tax, but I didn’t care because I already born
Then, they came for my cigarette tax, but I didn’t care because I was a non-smoker.
Then, they came for the Ice Cream tax and it was too late, all the other taxes were already raised

The Real Obama Tax Increase

If the voters authorize your subdivision association to spend $10.00 per year, and they spend $11.00 per year.  That’s a $1.00 increase in taxes that dwellers will be required to pay.  It’s a 10% tax increase.

Now magnify that to the scale of Obama’s 4 years.*  American’s authorized the Federal Government to spend $9,836,745,000,000… …yes, that’s almost $10 Trillion.

Barack Obama and the Democrats spent $14,658,185,000,000 — that’s $14.6 Trillion!

By the logic in the 1st sentence, that’s a $4,821,440,000,000 TAX INCREASE!  Per citizen, that’s a $15,306.16 Tax Increase… …a 49% tax increase.  It’s $4,000 per family just for the interest on Obama’s debt

So much for lowering taxes on 98% of all Americans.

*This reflects fiscal years 2010 – 2013 over which the President presided.

Free Candy

Adapted from E-Mail:

The folks who are getting the free candy don’t like the folks who are paying for the free candy, because the folks who are paying for the free candy can no longer afford to pay for both the free candy and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the free candy want the free candy to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free candy want even more free candy on top of the free candy they are already getting!

Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free candy have told the people who are RECEIVING the free candy that the people who are PAYING for the free candy are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… the people who are GETTING the free candy have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free candy by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free candy and giving them the free candy in the first place.

We have let the free candy giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free candy than paying for the free candy.

So, who is being selfish?  The one’s sick of paying for the free candy?  Or, the ones bitching because we don’t want to pay for their free candy?
