The Dissatisfied Majority April 11th, 2014

The federal budget is so big that nobody knows what’s in it. Nobody knows how many people work for the government. No one knows how many government contracts are let. Congress has no idea where next years 3.9 trillion dollars is going. They can’t, there are not enough hours in the year to read through it, but that won’t stop them from spending it.

91 percent of the citizens of the United States are dissatisfied with their government. If that majority were united behind a common goal, nothing could stop them. But the Tea Party is shooting in a hundred different directions, often at each other, and talk radio and conservative television are more interested in defeating Democrats than fostering rebellion.

44 cents of every dollar we pay in federal taxes is wasted or stolen and another 32 cents goes to pay interest on the debt. That leaves 24 cents worth of government services and benefits that are used as leverage against us when we demand any sort of fiscal responsibility. It works because we are being handled.

Liberal media is propaganda for liberals and conservative media is propaganda for conservatives. We are allowed to throw a bum out now and then and we can move control from one Party to another, but it has zero effect on the money. We have no control over how much the federal government spends, what they spend it on or how much they take out of our pockets to pay for it.

The American people just spent 450 billion dollars and 9.14 billion hours complying with the 74,000 pages of the 2013 tax code. Sure, most of those pages don’t apply to us, but only because most of them are exemptions that only apply to people with connections.

Small businesses paid 3 to 4 dollars in compliance costs for every dollar we paid in taxes, but that’s the point. The purpose of the tax code is to make us compliant. If they just wanted to collect money to run the government, they wouldn’t need 74,000 pages of rules.

Most State and local governments manage to get by on a reasonable rate of taxation and balance their budgets each year because we control local government at the ballot box. But even that is being undermined by the federal government because a significant percentage of our city, county and state budgets are collected by the feds and sent back with strings and conditions.

We can stop them, but only if the dissatisfied majority are united behind a couple of goals. Repealing the 16th Amendment and passing a Balanced Budget Amendment. Congress won’t do it. The State legislatures can. An Amendment Convention is the only alternative to letting things go on as they are.
