Demand Congress stop withholding taxes now by DefendUSx November 17, 2009 15:48 By: Devvy November 16, 2009
Last week the new unemployment numbers came out: 502,000 new unemployment claims. The usurper camped out in the White House gave a short speech on how to address the continuing hemorrhaging of jobs in this country: He's going to hold a "summit" next month. Isn't that clever of Obama aka Barry Soetoro? Then, he hops on his favorite toy, Air Force One, and jets out of town again to go bow to foreign governments who can collapse our economy in five minutes.
What the heck good is a "summit" next month going to do for millions of families suffering right now? There's talk of more stimulus packages to do what? Saddle us with more debt? All of these stimulus packages have done NOTHING for long term job growth in the private sector. How much more of doing the same thing that keeps failing are the American people going to sit back and swallow?
Millions of us have pounded on getting rid of the unnecessary federal income tax for decades. Congressman Ron Paul, has introduced bills in the past to get rid of the withholding taxing scheme. Always ignored by your member of Congress (and the idiot who represents me here in Texas) as they just spend, spend and spend more debt year after year after decade they're in office. Well, how interesting that finally at least one financial expert on FOX News Network put it out there last week: Suspend the income tax. He said these are desperate times that call for desperate measures. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
There can be no recovery without jobs. Everything that has been done since Congress passed the illegal bank bail outs (signed off by Bush) - right up through the massive stealing for quick fix programs like Cash for Clunkers - are all failures, as predicted, with the end result being more debt. Go take a look at this map of bankruptcies by state.
Go look at this map in real time. Click on foreclosures, then state, then city and then watch what happens. It's staggering. 18.8 MILLION homes (defaults) stood empty during the third quarter. Shocking, and it will get worse as all these government programs do nothing but create more debt, while stealing the American people blind in taxes to pay for this lunacy.
The solution according to Congress (BOTH parties) is continued massive spending for these immoral, unconstitutional invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Continued massive spending for unconstitutional cabinets like the Federal Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency. Heck, let's pass a $1.2 TRILLION dollar illegal disaster called health care reform. More proposed debt funded by more borrowing from the communist Chinese, Saudi's, Japanese and anyone else will throw a few billion in our beggar's cup.
The Democrats, along with a number of Republicans, want to further bankrupt the American people with the bogus 'global warming' scam and tax us into rags via another unconstitutional bill called cap and trade. The Republicans did the tax and spend us into unpayable debt from 1995 - 2006, until the Democrats took "power" and now those crooks are lining their pockets: $23,500,000: "The upper range of net worth Rep. Allan Mollohan (D-WV) accumulated in four years time according to The Washington Post, through earmarks of "tens of millions of dollars to groups associated with his own business partners." Twenty-three million five hundred thousands dollars. Your debt. Your child's debt. They have no future except as slaves to the Gods of DC.
$2,000,000,000: "($2 billion) the approximate amount of money that House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking related to his son's lobbying efforts. The son, Craig Obey, is "a top lobbyist for the nonprofit group" that would receive a roughly $2 billion component of the "Stimulus" package." Your debt. Mine. My elderly parents. My daughter. All of us eating this kind of corruption because the American people keep voting these scoundrels back into office.
Dennis Hastert, former Republican Speaker of the House, retired a rich, fat cat. Hastert is a clear cut example of a crook and should have gone to prison. Instead all these rats are sitting real pretty and guess who is paying for all this? You, me, our children and grand children. Massive debt in the tens of millions. We are little better than oxen under the yoke of indentured servitude. Our children will be paying Hastert's very plush retirement for decades while they go without.
35 MILLION AMERICANS ARE ON FOOD STAMPS
In a nation rich in natural and human resources. Look what Congress has done to our country over the past six decades. The states have gone along with the plundering and now we have mothers so desperate to feed their children and keep a roof over their head, they're robbing banks, for God's sake. Fathers so distraught, a half dozen have killed themselves and their entire families over financial hardship.
Millions of Americans are going hungry the last 3-4 days of the month because no matter how frugal they are, there isn't enough left from their paychecks to even buy food. I'm talking husband and wife or single people with two jobs. Moms and dads going with one meal a day at the end of the month so their children can eat two. Here in America while these lying jackals in Washington, DC do nothing but spend and tax us to death. These elites do not care about we the people. They don't care because we are nothing more than the peasant class to them.
Unemployment checks are replacing paychecks. The situation will not get any better unless jobs are created and that will not happen because Americans are saving what little they have left out of fear for the future. They aren't spending because there's nothing left to spend after their paychecks are raided to pay -- not essential and limited functions of a republican form of government - - but hundreds of billions to the "FED" for interest on the national debt and massive payments to the communist UN, the World Bank, BIS and foreign welfare.
The fruits of your labor are being stolen to build schools for the Palestinian Authority. Since 1994, the illegal USAID (United States Aid for International Development) program has thrown $2.4 billion into the Palestinian Authority. Billions stolen from we the people for what? Reduce poverty, improve health and education, create jobs and advance democracy. USAID is set to steal another $153 million from the American people in 2010 for the development of the Palestinian Authority's infrastructure in foreign countries.
Every time I do this kind of research, I want to literally vomit. No where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize Congress to steal from the American people to build schools or even a fence in any foreign country. No legal authority to steal from us and our children's future to give "aid" to foreign governments to load up on military hardware - that includes Israel. To further slap we the people in the face because there is NO money in the people's purse. The Treasury is over drawn $12 TRILLION dollars. Every penny of that $153 million dollars to advance the putrid stench of democracy and create jobs in Judea and Samaria has to be borrowed from the privately owned Federal Reserve. The interest is more debt on our backs, our children and grand children. This is change? This is just more grand larceny that both parties have been cramming down our throats for decades. Is this what you work so hard each day for - or did if you're one of the whopping 22% unemployed:
US to Give $125 Million to Upgrade Pakistan's Power Sector. October 29, 2009. "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, seeking to bolster Islamabad's fight against Islamic extremists US corporaterrorists' profits, initiated a crash U.S. assistance program for Pakistan's power sector aimed at rolling back electricity shortages that threaten to cripple the South Asian nation's economy. Mrs. Clinton, on the first of a three-day diplomatic mission to Pakistan, said that Washington will disburse $125 million to Islamabad for the upgrading of key power stations and transmission lines. U.S. experts [!] are also beginning to work with Pakistani utility companies to reduce power outages and lost revenue caused by outmoded technologies and systemic non-payment by customers, which costs Pakistan hundreds of millions of dollars each year."
Insanity. Here -- go look at this list of spending. This is change? It is sickening beyond words.
THAT is where your "income" tax withholding is going - to pay just the interest on the national debt created by this mafia out in Washington. Trillions of dollars of it. ALL borrowed and you, me, our children and grand children are on the hook to see that a damn power plant in Pakistan gets funding for geopolitical BS.
If you are new to understanding the money trail, please take the time to read this piece I wrote. You can also download it (free) to a CD and listen while you're in commute traffic or on a plane:
Why an income tax is not necessary to fund the federal government The Right Argument on Taxation The rape and plundering of the American people must stop because it's a moral crime against our people, our country. It must stop because money needs to be infused into our local economies or millions more will be going hungry and thousands of small to medium businesses across this country will continue to close their doors.
It's bad enough Republicans and Democrats and every president since and including Reagan, have allowed our nation to be invaded by tens of millions of criminals (illegal aliens) stealing jobs and resources. In this time of desperation for millions of Americans, these political whores in Congress continue to allow 125,000 foreign workers into this country every month to satisfy their corporate donors while Americans are standing in unemployment lines.
It is NOT the job of the federal government to create jobs. That is what the private sector does, but you can't create jobs unless people spend. Stopping the withholding taxing scheme will not bring the government to a halt. The other taxing scams (social security and Medicare) will still be withheld. Look at what stopping the income tax would do for someone who makes $52,000 per year. They would take home an extra $600 per month in cold, hard cash. Multiply that by tens and tens of millions of paychecks. (See this important column.)
Of course, the shadow government run by the banking cartels do not want you to have that extra money. They want you to continue running debt as your way of life; drowning in it no matter how hard you try. Because that's how they have enriched their coffers: by keeping all of us slaves to fiat currency. Just think what it would mean to families and single people to have that extra $200 or $600 or $1,000 each month in take home pay? It could mean the difference between foreclosure, keeping their health care coverage and staying warm this winter.
Instead, Congress - both parties and the hustler in the White House - want to continue stealing from all of us to send to foreign governments. To provide free dental care for villages in Guiana. Tens of billions for criminals (illegal aliens) in food stamps, education and medical care. While you and your family go hungry or your children go to bed cold because you can't afford to heat your home during the night.
No more. Get on the phone today and everyday. Call your member of Congress, Republican or Democrat, and tell them: Stop the federal income tax withholding from my paycheck! Congress has the power to tax and stop taxing. Only a massive campaign of bombarding these poltroons every day with a unified voice will force them to take some action.
Oh, make no mistake. There will be the usual ignorant responses from both parties that it isn't practical, can't be done, how will the government pay its bills and so on. These are excuses and we are sick of excuses based on ignorance and/or scare tactics. Yes, it can be done by an act of Congress and it can be done quickly. We cannot stop all the massive financial wrecks coming, but we can help hold some of it back by getting Americans back to work.
Call your friends, relatives, pass this column around. Melt those phones. Everyday. Call their district offices during the Thanksgiving holiday when these rats go home.
We must make a thousand times more noise than the tea parties with our demand to stop the withholding tax. Allow Americans to take home what is rightfully theirs -- not some foreign banking cartel or government.
This is our country and we say enough!
Stop withholding taxes? HA! Never! Congress has designed a system where they can steal our wealth in nickels and dimes so that we don’t realize that we are being bled to death.
Stop it yerself. Put 15 on yer w-4.
This article is one of the best patriotic rants against the federal plantation overseers I’ve ever read.
However, given the enormity of the crimes enumerated in the article, I’d say that simply demanding an end to the withholding tax is far too mild a response.
No, what’s needed is a full-scale revolt against the established criminal order in Washington. It’s long past due, and if the people do not link arms and stand as one, we soon may pass a point of no return.
Letters, emails, petitions, town halls, blogging, forum rants, etc, are having little braking effect on the tyrant train now barreling down the tracks to oblivion.
We need to blow up some tracks - roll a boulder into the path of the train - leap onboard and throw the engineers off, and pull the brake ourselves.
In short, it’s time to do a 9/12 x 10 on Washington. We literally need to force a mass resignation of nearly every federal level officer, appointed, hired, or elected - if we’re to stop the coming train wreck.
It’s time to Storm The Bastille!
Excellent rant. Some good ideas. Things will get much worse before they get better.
You can change your withholding throughout the year. Put your exemptions at 20 and put in the amount you want withheld in the additional amount. Put 0 if you don’t want anything withheld.
You silly fellow you...
Care to re-write that one?
That will teach me not to speed read. I missed it, and I’m feeling dumb for doing so.
oh, .... NICE pic.
I’m e-mailing it all over tomorrow.. :)
Ending withholding was one of Dick Armey’s favorite ideas. Not even Republicans supported it, unfortunately, becasue it shoudl be done.
These rants by Ron Paul zombies, paleocons and Libertarian Extremists tend to have too much hyperbole.
This is why I can’t stand these people. They run around the internet stoking fires and building a mindless mob.
Sure, they speak a lot of things that Conservatives like to hear, but you need to pay attention to the other stuff they are regurgitating, especially the Anti-War sophistry.
They are poisoning the well and anyone that falls for it is a lemming.
And more will be the way things are going.
Maybe the Post Office should switch over to food stamps.
Asking Democrats to stop taxes is like holding you hand out to stop a speeding train.
