President Barack Hussein Obama has stopped flirting with the possibility of a value added tax. He has all but announced his intention to pursue the issue. He’s sure to find a firestorm of resistance waiting for him.
Seems like the Congressional Republicans are getting much better at this guerrilla legislation thing. Good thing for them too. The loom of November throws shadows for some Republicans too. There’s still resentment out here regarding the establishment Republicans and what the grass roots saw as a betrayal of the trust we placed in them. That same ‘grassroots’, whether you call it the Tea Parties or the Patriot Movement, is a walk down main street America. It’s all walks of life, it’s Mr. and Mrs. Everyone.
That’s what it’s come down to… it’s us or them. Most complex problems have simple solutions, this one is as simple as it can get. We simply have to take the House and Senate back in November. Failure is not an option.
The Value Added Tax has reduced most of Europe to perpetual economic mediocrity. With economies struggling under the burden of socialist regulatory bureaucracies, the value added tax was enough to keep Europe’s economies from being competitive… it stifled job creation and entrepreneurism. It created a permanent sub-class of social welfare dependent families, because there were no jobs!
The socialists of Europe are a classic example of the failure of socialism, every one of these workers’ paradises grinds their people underfoot with crushing taxes on every level. It’s something that Obama wants here… it’s the only way he can begin to pay the almost incalculable debt he has created for this country and its citizens to deal with.
I think that the DeMarxist left has overreached itself badly this time. This battle is not Republicans versus Democrats. It’s between the DeMarxists and the American People.
