Do as I tax, Not as I do......

Perhaps the democratic socialist party would like to know the reason why their candidates support an even more progressive tax code. They have apparently had a rough time redistributing their own wealth. Perhaps with a new tax code they can create a kind of forced charity for themselves. I have to actually laugh at this because it is so hypocritical. If you want to know the character of the man you're voting for, perhaps you ought to examine how he practices what he preaches. Nevermind....if he preached this, he'd want 10%.....we all know that's impossible to do.

Barack and Michelle Obama had an average annual income of more than $500,000 between 2000 and 2006, but only gave two percent of their income for charitable purposes.

The Bidens' income averaged $260,000 over the last 10 years, but they averaged just $650 a year in charitable giving.

And the cherry on top.....last week in Florida.....

"We want to do this, change our tax code... John McCain and, and Sarah Palin, uh, they, they call this socialistic. You know I, I, I don't know when, when, uh, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness." ---Barack H. Obama

LOL, the democratic socialist party. That's awesome. Anyway, this all just ticks me off. Seriously. I'm watching the election coverage right now and want to vomit. So far no states have gone with Chuck or Romney...dang. ;)

Ah, the frustration is building. What is happening here? How did we fall to this lowly position in American history?
How can so many people be so blind? What do they think this man can or will do for them. Will they spend the next four years regretting this unfortunate decline in American democracy or will they be just as blind and ignorant and continue to dismiss responsibility and accountability?
I enjoy your posts, and I think we need a weekly support group, complete with refreshments and pain meds.
