If you had a farm and one day a stranger came over and told you he was taking almost half of your land, cattle and equipment for him and friends to use any way they want, wouldn’t you consider that stealing? I consider that STEALING and what makes the difference if the Government makes it legal for them to take up to almost 40% of your income and use it on programs and bailouts of their choosing. Nothing, there isn’t any difference.
I get it, you have to pay taxes for the government to run properly but when they start to spend excessively and take more than their fair share how can we sit back blind folded with our arms tied behind our backs and take this from these modern day thieves! Not me, I am the one who is going to shimmy off my blind fold, tip over my chair and unbind the rope around my hands. I cannot take it anymore and though I did not make it to the DC Treasury for the Tax Day Tea Party (http://www.taxdayteaparty.com/ ) I am going to do my part by blogging and passing around articles on Face Book.
I work for myself and when I see how many tax dollars I pay out of my pocket this year and how it will rise next year it makes me want to stop working. That would NEVER happen because hard work is what makes me who I am. I just do not like to think that 30 to 40% of my time as the governments. But it is tempting to become a sloth and just put my hand out like so many others.
What do you think?
(My next blog will not be about money or the government, I swear)
- I AmERICA
- Update: I left the political life in DC behind, moved to Chicago and joined the corporate world at Groupon. And now life has changed forever as I am a new mama of Mateo!!!!!!! I need advice all the time so I am starting this blog to get it:) past info.... I was born in raised in Michigan; I have a passion to help the economy back home. I am in DC learning how to do that and advocating for my Michigan home and family. I was in a boat crash that should have been fatal but God protected me and now I am not wasting my second chance at life. I believe that Leadership is taking action. If I say I am going to do something I do it no matter what. My family is everything to me and I surround myself with friends who inspire me. I am a young conservative woman; I like fashion, beauty and appreciate gentlemen who hold the door for me. I also support women and think we need more as CEO's and Political Leaders. Yes, you can be conservative and for women so that is why I am going to blog. If you are the same way then get your voice out there too at this website!
