Tea For Two

If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want

it is large enough to take everything you have.

-Davy Crockett

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,

and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

-Winston Churchill

Let's talk a little bit about the fiscal Clift.

The fiscal cliff was designed by both houses of Congress and the president of United States. It received bypartisan support, with the idea that it was something everybody can live with if negotiations stalled or failed by the end of 2012.

So ask yourself, why now the big deal that negotiations are failing and it looks like we are going to take the agreed-upon route, approved by all parties involved. I think that the answer is that politicians are afraid that when the American people see these new taxes, accompanied with the spending cuts, they may actually pay attention and begin to understand massive fiscal debt this country is got itself into. THROW THE BUMS OUT, is the call that the politicians dread to hear, for means a loss of trust in the loss of power.

The truth of the matter is America has lived beyond its means, by depending on fewer people to carry the tax burdens to run a bloated government. Close to half of America pays no income tax, these people received the largest amount the benefits from the government. Entitlements exceed, by far, all other expenditures of the federal government.

We are going to have to go over the fiscal cliff, refused to raise the debt limit, modify entitlement programs like food stamps which go to people that are capable of feeding themselves. The Obama administration tells us that they can cut half $1 trillion from Medicare just on fraud. Please Mr. Obama if you can do it, if you can't shut up.

    I tell you the deal I would make with them. I would give them the extension of the Bush tax cuts for the bottom 98% of America, and allow the taxes to raise on the top 2% of the taxpayers. In exchange I would haven't written in the law that the debt ceiling could not be raised unless Congress declared a national emergency by super majority.
