Is it just me or does anyone ever look at our "Budget" for America that the senate has set up and just said..."HOLY COW! NO WAY!! WE CAN'T AFFORD THAT!!!" I know I cannot be the only one! I look at what I work for, I mean go, get in my car and drive to work, being away from my children for 14 hours a day, work. I consider myself lucky right now to have a job since the "progressive left" has deemed it more important to live off the government for total control of you than to let you say no and risk losing your "benefits". I can't believe that we have let this hole "suckling off the government teet" last this long, because in all actuality is is sucking all Americans dry that work hard to bring home what little we do. The elite have no problem with this because they have good tax attorneys that allow them to pay little to no taxes on what they have keeping them in the status they have become accustomed to. It doesnt affect the Senators because most of them are in the elite class anyway, and by the way, ask any senator and they will tell you that they are making laws for YOUR protection and to Help YOU because apparently YOU and I do not and cannot make our own decisions. We are paying Social security tax, income tax, medicare tax and then we have to pay our share of medical, dental and vision, then life insurance because after you have the continuing heart attacks from all the money gone each check, you'll need to be buried. Then you have the option of a 401K. So after uncle Sam gets his, then you try and save a bit for your future because you know that Social Security will be null and void by the time you can collect it, where does that leave you? I say we make the government a hollow government. I want them out of my family, out of my bible, that they hide behind, but none have a tendancy to actually believe in or there would not be as many corrupt people in the houses, and get them the heck out of my wallet. You want the job market to go up? You want to resolve issues for health care? Here is a proposal: No taxes. Period. Eliminate the ginormous government jobs that they have deemed necessary "for our protection". Go to a shell. We need the Military. We need the postal workers and the prison guards. We do not need the scientists working for the government. We do not need all of the specialized branches that most people do not even know exhist. Congress wants to make us happy, then do your job and work for US!!! We can vote on anything and everything!! this would insure that the pork would disappear. We go right back to the basic infrastructure that was originally founded in this nation. We make the jobs that are run by the government run by private citizens. By the people, for the people. This would create jobs. This would eliminate our budget fears and this would help us help ourselves. We can put up borders and require all people coming into this country to have a passport. No more free school and scholarships for foriegners or prisoners. Free trade will exhist and the companies that outsource will be taxed heavily when their goods enter back into the country. This will help pay for our Men and Women that protect us through the military. We can sustain ourselves, we just have to get back to the basics. We can tax everything that comes in at a high rate like every other country does to us. No more selling arms and helping to train militarily other countries because they always end up turning on us anyway. We need to focus on the US, this means us. NO MORE!!!! Turn the heat on the polititions and start asking about our bill of rights and I can guarantee that they cannot and will not debate you because they have trampled over it so many times that they do not even know what it says, but they know what is good for you? Wake up and smell the socialism.
