Taxes, ignorance take toll

Are we too stupid for words? The Democrats are in power and they have made the public believe it’s all the Republicans’ fault for every crisis.

The Republicans lack the backbone to stand up and say no more spending. The American people do not understand economics or the Constitution, so they believe the nonsense they hear from liberals and the White House. The executive branch does not rule this country; it works for us, and should not force us to pay up to 52 percent of our pay in federal, school, state, sales, real estate, car and local taxes.

It has been proved that less tax means more money for individuals to spend as they please to renew our economy. Less tax on business help them expand and hire more people, which would compensate the government with more tax. Basic economics! But because government, civics, economics, the Constitution and individual freedom are not in public schools, we have finally dumbed down our children.

Our growing moral depravity stems from excluding God from government and schools, sometimes even in our churches. No nation can survive without moral and financial responsibility.

We have no one we elect to stop this problem because of cowardice, political correctness and media bullies destroying the best of America. Have we forgotten why we became the greatest free nation in the world, where everyone wants to come to be the best they want to be? We are great not because of entitlements and excessive taxation, but because of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness – without the hammer of government telling us we shouldn’t.
