It's happening. All across this country people are rising up. Not only "rich" people. Ordinary hard working patriotic americans who understand what the Obama plan will do to our economy.
Now over the initial euphoria, people are now beginning to realize that most jobs are provided by those mean and nasty people earning over $250,000. They are realizing that most of those same nasty people at one time earned nothing. Most of these people did not inherit their wealth, they got it the old fashioned way; they earned it. They studied hard and worked hard to build the businesses that now employ others. Citizens are now beginning to understand that instead of so called "trickle down economics" they are going to see the faucet turned off!
For those who have taken the time to actually study what I will hereafter call "The Plan", it has become obvious that it is the route to national ruin. Those earning over $200,000 will no longer be able to deduct home mortgages. Thos earning less will see the "horrible" Bush Tax cuts expire and even though under The Plan they will get a small cut, the expiration of the Bush tax cuts will mean a net INCREASE in taxes for anyone earning more than $50,000 per year and possibly even those earning more than $25,000 per year.
Those horrible, selfish rich people earning over $250,000. will see their earnings reduced as the tax burden on them goes from the already 70% they currently pay to nearly 90% of the tax burden. Deductions will evaporate and jobs will as well. Water does not flow up hill and those who disdain "trickle down" economics must now explain how "trickle up" economics will function. Reaganomics has been supplanted by Obamanomics, but the physics does not make sense.
There MUST be a revolt. I am not, of course, talking about taking up arms (Though hiding them would be advised before the gun laws change). I am advocating peaceful protests as we have seen across this great country.
A passage from one of the greatest documents ever written states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." That document, for those such as Obama, Pelosi and Reed who do not recognize it, is The US Declaration of Independence.
We now must take a stand against the assault on our freedom and our rights. As Benjamin Franklin said when urging the Continental Congress to remain unified: "We must hang together or we shall all surely hang separately".
