Tax Revolts are Brewing

Yeah, yeah, if you looked down a few posts, you’d see Mr. Doom Gerald Celente talking about impending tax revolts as a first sign of American discontent with the system. The sky is falling!  The sky is falling!  OK, but here’s a few stories out today, dealing with that very potential:

1.  Malkin’s got some angry taxpayers protesting the Stimulus in Seattle, to expand to Denver tomorrow (both states have Democrat governors).

2.  The State of Kansas is poised to suspend Kansan’s tax rebates – that’ll go over well (Democrat governor by the way)!

3.  The California Legislature simply can’t figure out what to do in regards to its insane $40 billion budget deficit, so they’re mulling tax increases (RINO governor with a Democrat Legislature).

In all of these cases the government is postured to steamroll the taxpayer to appease their constituency-building spending policies.  The “forgotten man” (the average regular everyday taxpayer) is always stepped on — always tax increases, never real cuts or really hard decisions made.  But are we reaching a threshold?  Maybe not today or tomorrow, but I do not think these kinds of government and civic conflicts will stop anytime soon.  Eventually they’ll be irreconcilable if we keep going down this road.

On a side note —- can someone tell me why there has been no mention of charges being brought against the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae CEOs who “cooked the books” enabling them to receive some $90,000,000+ in bonuses upon their departure? These bastards ought to be thrown in JAIL or at least GITMO ……….. so why do we not hear of any Federal prosecutor or just a loyal patriot Attorney “out in America somewhere” who will bring charges against these a holes? At the very least, we ought to recover the bonuses they ran with and apply the bonuses to the PorkBill…………..anyone care besides me out there?

Dennis, we all care here. Believe me, these people should be charged and thrown in jail. The problem is, they are all Democrat Party hacks, so that will never happen.

I think the only way to bring this massive theft to a halt is to take away our money. Here is a thought; everyone who is having taxes witheld from their check, adjust upward the number of dependents to the point that NO TAXES are witheld from their paychecks. Then open a separate savings account/money market account, and put the amount of money commensurate with your tax bracket in there. That way we will keep OUR MONEY, instead of giving it to the parasites. If we could get a large number of citizens to do this, it would have an immediate impact. It has finally come down to the fact that it is US against THEM! The next thing is a massive rally in Washington to petition the government for redress of grievences. I’m ready. Let’s GO!

I don’t know how he does but Freiman predicted this event in his book Conservative Outcomes last year. Way to go Americans, the Gov works for us we do not work for them!

I’m ready to roll whenever the rest of us can stand no more! I know it will take some time, but I cannot see a clear way out of this other than a revolt of some kind. They have all the money and now all the power. Count me in ………… when the ground starts moving under our feets toward Washington DC
