To The Editor:


In 2007 the average American paid more in city, county, state and federal taxes than they did on food, clothing, and housing combined according to The Tax Foundation. We worked one-third of the year to pay our taxes. It took four months, until April 30, to cover the taxes you paid last year. It’s not getting any better. We have two liberal candidates who want to raise taxes even more. There was an exchange during a debate a few weeks ago which infuriated left wingers.

First, Obama was reminded that when capital gains taxes are cut, revenues to the government go up. He was reminded when capital gains taxes are increased, tax revenues go down. He was asked in light of these statistics why he was promoting an increase in capital gains taxes. His answer? He said that capital gains taxes should go up out of fairness.

The truth is out folks. Barack Obama believes taxes serve purposes other than raising revenue for the legitimate operations of government. He thinks taxes should be used to make things more “fair.” He is a pure socialist. He takes from the people who are making too much money and gives to the people who are making too little. Or, as some of Barack’s heroes might say, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” Of course Obama would be in control of this.

Are you ready for a United States where politicians determine how much of the money you earn it would be fair for you to keep, and how much should just be taken and given to someone else? If you are then Obama is your man!

Do we not remember the three great tax cut plans, the Kennedy, Reagan, and Bush tax cuts generated and increased revenue more than any other time in history. If we can just get the pork barrel Congress to quit spending more than what we give them. Vote for one who says they will cut taxes so you keep more of what you earn. The radical liberal Democrats will continue to raise taxes, give amnesty to illegal immigrants, initiate a government takeover of health care, roll-back welfare reform, and push for passage of their entire special interest dictated laundry list of left-wing programs. You must choose between socialism and capitalism.
