How Do You Feel About a 103% Tax Hike?

Digg This I am not the biggest Glenn Beck fan. I think he is way off base sometimes and completely disagree with him. But, that is the beauty of being a human, right? You can be unique as you want to be, or try to xerox yourself…

With that said, sometimes Glenn Beck spits out some absolutely beautiful jems. Things that need to be said, addressed, and spread.

One thing that has been mentioned over the last decade but never talked about and definitely not addressed. In fact, many people think that it is some sort of fairytale. This issue is Social Security and how it is going to bankrupt our economy. BANKRUPT, people! There is no way around this unless we all start giving up a whole lot more of our paychecks.

Yes, we need $54 TRILLION dollars to finance Social Security for just the baby boomers. That means that we need to raise payroll taxes by 103% to cover that. Can you afford a 103% tax hike to cover this tab? If you can’t cover this type of hike, I hope that you (a) send this page to your friends (b) Digg this page and/or (c) write your Congressman. We need to get on this as soon as possible because, guess what, the baby boomers are already starting to draw their checks.

It doesn’t matter if you are an anarchist or a fascist, a Republican or a Democrat, a socialist or a conservative – you need to act…. no, you have to act. We all need to demand that this problem is addressed and fixed. At the very least, we need to demand that our politicians quit trying to bury the $%#@!$ truth from us like they always do. This is not a problem they can just continue to bury because it is a problem that is going to bury us.

    As if taxes aren’t bad enough already…That’s the problem with the welfare state.

    This is sick…but I’m not even surprised. Neo-prophets have been foretelling of this baby boom social spending apocalypse for some time now, and it’s finally happening. What can we do? Politicians won’t help us. Short of organizing a grass roots organization and applying ballot box pressure, they won’t do squat. Even Numbers USA which has the largest grass roots organization on the planet has trouble getting these bastard politicians to represent the best interests of the people and therefore the country. I think I’ll go burn my representative in effigy.

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
