    Spam e-mail, churchill? Are you delusional?

    Would Americans be willing to pay one extra penny per dollar in sales taxes to help this mess?

    I just wonder if it would be acceptable as a two-year program (with no “automatic” renewal without a vote from the people,) would it help?

    I’d rather do that than watch these guys fight for the next two years…

    Why don’t we just ask that all federal and state employees close out their retirement funds and add that money to social security? Put us all in the same boat, so to speak….

    I have heard it said; “There is nothing new under the sun.” Today’s political scene leaves me agreeing with this idea. Here’s an example:

    When asked by a Democrat what should be done to help those people who were adversely impacted by the Financial Crisis, and how we should deal with the growing deficit, the following was heard from a Republican Congressman:

    “Are there no prisons?” asked the Republican.

    “Plenty of prisons,” said the Democrat.

    “And the Union workhouses?” (Walmarts) demanded the Republican. “Are they still in operation?”

    “They are. Still,” returned the Democrat, “I wish I could say they were not.”

    “The Treadmill (Streets) and the Poor Law (Bankruptcy Court) are in full vigour, then?” said the Republican.

    “Both very busy, sir.”

    “Oh! I was afraid, from what you said at first, that something had occurred to stop them in their useful course,” said the Republican. “I’m very glad to hear it.” “I help to support the establishments I have mentioned – they cost enough; and those who are badly off must go there.”

    “Many can’t go there; and many would rather die.”

    “If they would rather die,” said the Republican, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.

    Let me interject something here…

    Isn’t the problem that there aren’t enough taxes to pay for the spending we have, and that the spending is way out of control?

    I’d say let all of the tax “breaks” end, and let us all sacrifice a little now, until we can make changes in how we are allowing tax money to be spent.

    My dad was in WWII, and remembers the sacrifices Americans made for that war, and here we are crying about the return of a few taxes. We have nothing on that generation.

    Tea partiers say they are “Taxed Enough Already”, but I think the fundamental problem is that most people aren’t happy about the way our money is spent. The silly earmarks, political kickbacks and favortitism cause a lot of problems, and something needs to be done to change and outright stop wasteful spending, but until that is done, through electing people with real agendas and the support of their constituents, we need to start paying for our government’s actions.

    We elected them, people. Show some responsibility, and let the ‘tax cuts” end.

    People who cry about how they don’t want their grandchildren to pay off our debt are the same ones who don’t want to sacrifice now to help reduce that debt. How does that make sense?

    THINK! We have limited control over what has already been done!

    Yes, you can repeal certain laws, but in the long run, unless you elect a large group of people who have shared, straightforward ideas about reducing the deficit and cutting back on government spending in specific ways, you get the same old politics year after year.

    I don’t believe in “Trickle Down Economics” since I lived through the Reagan years, but I also lived through a lot of other hard times for this country. We WILL get through this.

    All I can say about our current situation is that we are in it, now let’s deal with the problems we are faced with. Don’t let rhetoric or vague promises swing your vote! Ask for specifics! Support the candidates who make SENSE in these rough economic times.

    America is GREAT, and will continue to be so, but we need to look into ourselves and decide to move forward as a country, UNITED in the effort to return to prosperity,with all sacrificing what is needed until we can return to fiscal responsibility.

    Democracy is a constant struggle for equality, not a war of words and accusations.
