Correction to Reality October 17th, 2014

Barack Obama and Harry Reid have just about completed the Democrat Party's 60 year quest to convert America to Socialism. They have done it against the will of most Americans and against the Constitution. They were successful because the only alternative national political party has had interests of its own that are also not in line with the will of the people or the Constitution.

I asked my employees if they would rather take home the $15,000 they collectively earned this week, or send $5,000 of it to the federal government first. After showing them all of the hidden taxes associated with my company's payroll, the vote was unanimous.

A political party that represented the interests of working Americans could win every election in a landslide. This should be an opportunity for the Republican Party, but since working people don't generally send money to politicians, Republicans have no more to gain from tax reform than Democrats.

The bedrock principle of this Republic is that all people are created equal. The rules that constitute our government were written to insure that the federal government would treat its citizens uniformly, as in the right to collect taxes "shall be uniform throughout the United States".

If this principle were followed most of the issues that are being debated this election cycle would be irrelevant. If the federal government didn't treat us differently based on things like our income level, age or marital status, they wouldn't get away with wasting or embezzling a trillion tax dollars every year, and we wouldn't have an 80,000 page tax code or a one hundred million person welfare system.

We wouldn't have senior citizens dependent on a system that can't keep its promises and that requires each working person to support a senior citizen who is not their parent, two poor people they don't know and to pay about one eighth of the salary of a federal employee before they have a chance take the proceeds of their work home to their own families.

We could ask for a Constitutional Amendment stating that the federal government shall not use force to favor or penalize the special interest of any group or individual over any other, but how do you amend the Constitution to say what it already says?

We will have the opportunity to try something different because our economy is based on lies. It might be tomorrow, next year or in five years, but sooner or later the world's economy is going to correct to reality. We will get a new system. We will miss the one we have destroyed.
