This makes sense. The Democrats want to stick it to millions of Americans in order to supposedly punish a few hundred "wealthy" people

As the title of this post suggests, it would seem the Democrats in their zeal to punish success are more than willing to beat down all Americans with more taxes in order to punish the very few wealthy Americans.
No thank you Democrats, this blogger does not care about the wealthy but I do care about you stealing even more of my money.

The make this almost amusing the Democrats claim this will just add to the deficit. Again, the Democrats in their infinite wisdom actually believe a Tax cut is a cost. Also, why would they count this as money in hand before it is, they should have assumed these Bush Tax Cuts would be extended. However, the obvious must be pointed out to the Democrats. Flagrant out of control spending adds to the deficit. NOT raising taxes never adds to a deficit.

So it is back to a very basic plan the politicians seem to fail to grasp. Don't spend so much damn money on every idiot scheme thought of. Don't spend so much money on over priced products and services and stop spending on so much the government should not even be involved in.

Then perhaps we may see an improvement in the economy.

Still back to the original Topic. The reality is the Democrats want to stick it to America. They are not actually going to raise taxes on the wealthy. This is because most of the Democrats themselves are multi millionaires, Their buddies in Hollywood and many other supporters are all wealthy and the Democrats are hardly going to tax themselves and punish their comrades. This is just another scheme where the Democrats claim they will do one thing, shaft the wealthy when in reality that shaft is meant for the rest of the American people.

The Democrats don't seem to realize they were smacked down...

The Democrats were thoroughly smacked down in most of the country and they still push their liberal socialist agenda. This would be amusing if these politicians could only affect themselves and their followers.

The Democrats were smacked down in 1994 for similar reasons like over spending and raising taxes and of course restricting freedoms. So the question is why in the world did they think they could do far worse that 1994 in forcing their liberalism down American throats and spending insanely.

This happens to be a single example of it being a Good thing anyone who does not read history is doomed to repeat it.

Thank you Democrats for repeating 1994, perhaps American will survive.

Banning blackberries in parts of the world, the question is where do governments get the right to need your data?

Many countries around the world are beginning to ban blackberries. The claim is the governments can't control the data because it goes to foreign servers and is encrypted. This prevents the government from being able to access the data when they need too.

America is not yet attempting this but the American government is also under the false belief that they have a right to our data whenever they feel the need. This need is always couched under the umbrellas of law enforcement and security.

Liberty in American means to live free without interference from the government or society. The government has no right to demand that data be accessible to them forever, in case they need it. There is a need to perform law enforcement, they can obtain a warrant and can make a law that days companies like blackberry should provide the ability to decrypt or provide data after the warrant is in place. Otherwise, data should be entirely inaccessible to the government or anyone else.

We the people have a right to privacy, a right defined by us, it does not have to be in the constitution to be a right. The government is specifically prohibited from watching us like we are all criminals and having access to our data anytime is in effect monitoring us like big brother.

The fact that the data is accessible to the government means features exist to allow access, which can then be exploited by actual criminals as well. Making identity theft easier, because it is easier for the government to control your identity.

The people should demand that everything about themselves is owned by them and the government has no right to it.Our name, data, ID cards, money, clothing, whatever owned or is part of a person's identity or life should be entirely controlled by the individual and the government should have no authority to remove it, control it, access it or do anything with it. In truth, the government should not have to know anything about me except the fact I represent a number in the census count.

Today, the governments in america lay claim to own all of your IDs, such as a passport. The government should issue a passport but short of criminal investigation, the government should have no authority to revoke or take back a passport for any reason, it is yours, your name and as a free individual, you have the right to receive and keep your passport at all times. The government does not need to know when , where or how you transfer your money. The government does not need to know you travel to many different countries, at least when it comes to friendly countries or ones that are at least not antagonistic to the US. The government does not need to know where you work or why.

The bottom line is you and your identity are yours. Identity theft is prevalent because it is the fact the government refuses to make laws protecting your claim to yourself to provide the government access to your data and your activities, which allows for Identity theft to occur. If they made you the sole owner of your own identity, you would be able to protect yourself from criminals and government intrusion because in both cases it is access provided to the government, which gives criminals access as well.

Other countries are claiming similar reasons for bans on blackberries but another unspoken reason is censorship. These less than free countries want to be able to scan and search for those who disparage their governments. America is almost there. The US government already tracks everything you do, anywhere in the world or at least they are trying. Already they are trying to pass laws that makes it impossible to have a blog such as this one or TV stations, or radio or other sources of information which disparages the democrats and their socialist agenda.

When the government already has access to everything you say and do, , giving themselves the power to take over anything they wish, how long before they are banning blackberries here?

We want the American dream back. An appeal to any country friendly to Americans...

We the people of America should be completely disgusted and tired of the Democrat party and its supporters. We were not placed on this planet by God to earn money for those jackasses in the democrat party to confiscate from us. Using Ayn Rand's idea in Atlas Shrugged, why should we not remove ourselves from this country to a place that appreciates talented and financially capable individuals. Without people like you the reader and this author, the progressives will have nothing. They need our money to force us to become socialists. Why should we stay here in a place where 47% of the population, 90% of the education system, all unions and the vast majority of all government employees have it out to take everything we own.

We the people who are patriots of America are patriots of the idea of government created by the people as defined by the Founding Fathers of this country. We are not obligated to stay in a place where the Constitution no longer applies. I am a patriot of the America where freedom is assured, with a government based on the Constitution created from natural law, my rights are mine to define, the government protects my rights and I can pursue my happiness and live my life anyway I choose. America is not this land, it is the people. It is the 45% of the population that still believes the founding fathers created the best country in history.

Ms Rand has a good idea. Why not have Americans take their skills and money to a place that welcomes us. Everyone wants to come to America. What most don't realize is America is the people. It is our attitude, our morals and our culture. We can bring America to any country we adopt and perhaps we should. We can always move back once the progressives and their supporters collapse in their own misery. Why should we stay and let them take everything from us and follow them into the oblivion of socialism they want so much.

Perhaps we could appeal to some country in the world, that is willing to take Americans in and let us transform them into the America people want to immigrate too.

Isn't the saying that home is where ever you and your loved ones are? America is it's people and we can form this government anywhere in the world. Perhaps we should do something as daring as the Founders and separate ourselves from our oppressors so we can again follow the path leading to the American dream. We should want to have the dream back. The democrats and their supporters have a different dream, one where everyone is equally miserable. The American dream is still alive, it just needs a home because clearly the Democrats have decided to alienate and make unwelcome the American dream and anyone who still believes in that dream.

Any government reading this outside of the the United States, consider this idea. If you make laws that welcome Americans as immigrants, you will likely find many willing to relocate. We have money, ethics, skills, morals, fortitude and always do everything possible to help as evidenced by our worldwide generosity. If you believe as we do, that America is a great country, perhaps you can make a second America one based on the original ideas of America and have the American people move to your country and help you create a new and potentially a country that exceeds the greatest nations that have existed in the past.

Obamacare is in and is the next step to the democrats inflicting American with socialism

For the first time in American history a political party has done what only occurred in banana republics, tyrannies and socialist countries in the past. The democrats have forced america into a National Healthcare system that will first tax everyone into poverty for 4 years with no actual benefit and during that 4 years the rest of the law will ensure the private medical industry and insurance industry will cease to exist.

Never before have politicians in America passed a law that had the majority of the population against it. Numbers range from 60 to 75% but clearly the majority don't want it. What is clear is the democrats have nailed shut their own coffin and have likely not only lost power this November but may have killed their chance at power again for 20 or more years. The question is what is in this bill that has them willing to let the entire party lose elections in november?

Here is what to expect from Obamacare.

Taxes going up very high. Of course, the democrats always claim they are taxing the rich and their core voters always buy that line. In reality, these guys are rich themselves and are not going to tax their own money or their friends. It will be the middle class that pays for this. Remember, they need not provide any services until 2014, after Obama's presumed re-election, though he may now only be a 1 term president. So from now until 2014, they will move the taxing from the so called rich , to the middle class. The rich know how to hide their money in ways to ensure no taxing will fall on them and this new law will likely drive the upper middle class into the same tax shelters. This leaves everyone else left to work like good socialist slaves for the benefit of the democrats and the so called poor with no insurance.

If you are retired, expect medicare to become more expensive and have reduced services. Obama claims he will "eliminate waste and fraud" in medicare and use that savings for the new national healthcare. Ask yourself when the last time any congress or president has ever dealt with waste or fraud or when they have ever reduced the cost of anything. Be assured just like in England and Canada, if you are retired, you will not be getting much. They government will set up rules that dictate who gets care when and being elderly is a mark against you.

The worse is yet to come. As the democrats erode this country by confiscating all money, nationalizing yet another industry and creating a so called "right" to healthcare, they are destroying this country as assuredly as any other socialist nation has destroyed itself.

The key is creating a right. The Constiution does not grant the government any authority over rights. WE the people determine rights, the government protects them. Now that the democrats have precedent in creating a right, be assured they will create more and remove the ones they find inconvenient. The government is also taking even more of the economy than at any other time in history. The very protections this country started with to prevent what happened in the House under Nancy Pelosi today. The government does not have the authority to take an industry, nationalize and destroy it and create rights. Those protections are mentioned at the beginning of this blog, limits on funds and senators voted by state legislatures.

People, we need to force the democrats out and force the republicans to repeal this law. We have no other choice. If this does not happen, there is no where else for productive americans to go. These people are doing to us what the bolesheviks did to russia, what the current socialists in Europe are doing to their people and we are headed down the path China is on now.

At some point, we need to return to the America started by the US constitution because there is no room for a middle class in a socialist nation. Only the rich politicians and their poor slaves can live in the society the Democrats are building today.

The progressive marxist Democrats have handed the ball to the Republicans but will there be any action?

The democrats in their zeal to impose communism on the people have basically handed the ball over to the Republicans in November.

The Political Shaman will predict the GOP politicians will not reverse anything the democrats do.

Where in the last 70 years has any party reversed anything the previous party did. Sure maybe prohibition could be counted but in reality that had little effect on anything. Do you see the Republicans actually reversing Carbon Tax or Healthcare should they be passed? Do you believe the Republicans will enact a new Bush Tax cut after expiration? Do you think the Republicans will return unspent stimulus money, return the land taken recently in a land grab but the feds to own more land in the west? Do you feel the republicans can finally start to dismantle or make more effective Social Security or Medicare?

Best of all, do you believe the Republicans will reverse the taxes, spending and regulation killing this country?

There is no history supporting any of this. The only thing we can hope for from them is a stalling of the country on its current path to Marxism. That is what the last few decades of history shows. Republicans will slow the damage but not fix it.

It will be a good thing to have the progressives out of power. Just don't get too excited because no one is going to actually fix anything either.

The democrats are falling apart, yet the still have the power to force us to take anything, or do they?

The last few weeks have been incredible with the Democrats causing themselves all kinds of problems. They are losing elections they should not lose, having tickle fests, resigning, not running subsequent terms, taxing the hell out of us, spending more than any time in the past and being called out for pushing their marxist progressive agenda.

The real problem though is the Prophet Obama and Queen Pelosi have not just doubled down, they are going all in and have flatly said they will force their healthcare and presumably anything else down our throats, for our own good.

Here is the question. How can they force the people into anything? A law must be accepted by the majority of the people or the government will need to use violence to force us. Perhaps the American People need to start ignoring laws passed that are not legitimate nor accepted. The biggest mistake the people ever made was around slavery and the biggest excuse justifying it continuing for so long was "the law". In reality, Congress, nor the Supreme Court could vote for or rule in favor of any slave law because it is impossible for either entity to circumvent unalienable rights.

We have a right to live in the country without being forced by the government to do anything detrimental to our ability to live as free individuals. The fact that congress and the prophet may vote or pass a law is totally irrelevant, if the people stand up for their rights and ignore the law. Part of the success of America is the People in general voluntarily follow the law. We follow most laws but not all of them. Most people will speed occasionally or water their lawn against the rules prescribed and have no problem say getting an abortion when it was still illegal or drinking during prohibition. In fact, drug laws are on the books and many ignore those and the rest of the people don't care too much or the government would not have such a hard time enforcing those laws.

It is simple People of America, ignore the laws congress passes that are detrimental to us or are against the constitution. Some laws can't be ignored so easily, such as tax laws, since our money is taken before we get it. For these so called laws, perhaps we need to form a class action lawsuit against the individual politicians for passing tax and spending laws that have effectively ruined the economy.

Just remember people of America, we don't have to take it from the politician, unless they pick up a gun, they can't force us, unless of course they succeed in removing the 2nd amendment.

Middle class America, perhaps it is time to leave...

Middle class America, 50% of the country is voting in democrat politicians to steal your money, force you out of your homes and vehicles and slowly taking every freedom you have.

You are the producers of this country. The engineers, the teachers, the programmers, the technicians, plumbers, mechanics and the ones supporting the liberal socialist programs against your will. Every year these politicians take more and 50% of your fellow citizens vote them in to do this.

Perhaps it is time to leave. American is the best country on earth because of the Americans who produce, who live decent lives and simply want to ensure their own families are taken care of and have the generosity to help others when needed. We are America, not the 50% of people taking from you.

If we leave, they will not survive. There are plenty of decent countries who would take Americans with open arms, treat us well and since America is us, anywhere we go will effectively be America. This idea is not new as it is the main solution in Atlas Shrugged for example. It would not be a long stay. After all, how long could the liberals last in America without the people whose money they confiscate for their ideology and welfare programs.

Not long at all, plus when they implode not only will America be free again for us to go back too, we will be bringing with us other countries likely very friendly to Americans and more than willing to continue the profitable relationship after the liberals have finally defeated themselves.

As long as the middle class productive people stay, the democrats will keep stealing our money until we have none, we are all destitute and we will not be able to leave.

Just a thought because the only other option is to pick up guns and force the liberals to leave but that would make us no better than they are, after all the end result of the liberal marxist path is an army turned against the people, at least every other example of marxism in the past ended this way, why would it be different this time, after 100 million already killed in the last 100 years.

Lets follow the example set by the very wealthy, just leave and let the democrats wither away on their own.

Finally the socialist Democrats are losing power but will the republicans do anything useful?

Finally, after almost a year of the Prophet Obama, Queen Pelosi and Court Jester Reid trying to convert American into a socialist utopia, the people of Massachusetts have spoken. The Democrats have lost their filibuster proof majority which effectively stops the Obama agenda in its tracks, assuming the Republicans have the backbone to actually use the 41 vote advantage they have.

It would seem the liberal democrats and Obama their messiah did not learn well the lessons taught by Nikita Khrushchev, former leader of the Soviet Union who said American can't be converted to communism instantly, it has to be done slowly over time. It is a good thing that Obama and his followers do not pay attention to history as we know by their quotes of Chairman Mao and Hollywood celebrities insistence on wearing pictures of Che the Cuban general responsible for killing hundreds. Though perhaps if the progressive liberal marxists in the democrat party did read history, they would know the old progressive marxist agenda is a failure but that may be asking too much.

The people of Massachusetts, a dark blue state has overwhelmingly rejected the democrats and their 8 years of insane government incompetence and spending compressed into 1 year. The situation is grim for the democrats and as the Political Shaman predicted, the democrats did go to their core belief of total marxism and attempted to in one year convert American, which predictably failed. We will see the Democrats repeat 1994 and lose everything again but the question is about the republicans. Will they take up the ball, the American people just knocked out of the hands of the democrats?

Probably not.

You see, the republicans would have to go back to the core Constitutional conservative belief that government is the problem. The republicans would have to actually stop the spending and pay back the stimulus, actually reduce taxes and above all, reduce the cost of government and the effects of bogus regulations.

Since no congress in living memory has actually reversed bad laws, truly cut spending and effectively reduced taxes enough to reduce it from a burden to a cost, it is safe to conclude the republicans will not be setting a precedent.

We can possibly hope for the republicans to grow a pair and at least go back to the 1994 mentality and perhaps make a new contract with America.

It is good news the Democrats have been stopped before they could finish off the country but America will remain on the precipice of destitution as long as the current government and laws remain in place.
