BRINKMANSHIP: THE FISCAL CLIFF OF POLITICAL MANIPULATION

Looming in the Washington DC mist of brinkmanship is the fiscal cliff featuring more angles and undercurrents than hurricane Sandy ever imagined.  Yet the collateral damage from this storm will make Sandy seem a dwarf, as the American people be damned.

What neither Boehner, Reed, or Obama, much less most all of Washington care for, or  will ever admit to, is that no nation can spend its way to prosperity.  Below are the realities of America’s regressive tax policies (fig a & b).

What Elect A New Congress proposes are the cuts realized from “On Liberty in Restraint of Government and Spending”, along with a tax on unearned income.   Unearned income over $250,000 can be increased along the lines of those tax increases currently proposed so as not to harm retires.  Over $500,000, it goes to 50%, over $750,000 it goes to 75%, and over $1,000,000 it rises to 90%.

It seems bold, doesn’t it?  But when you consider it is a higher tax on unearned income, the taxpayer simply needs to put their latent gaining income to work in projects they are principally involved in so that it is no longer unearned income.  This will do what tax policies are suppose to do, encourage people to invest their money in businesses.  This creates small companies, some which become larger and in all cases start creating jobs,  something Washington DC simply does not, or does not want, to understand.

These businesses will generate the tax revenues Washington DC seeks, while simultaneously placing Washington into the conundrum of establishing the environment necessary to further induce this investment.  This takes America back into the life freeing demands of Liberty, that promised-land where the leadership of Washington and NYC do not want common American’s to go and prosper, because now we would move further from their iron grip they now have wrapped around all Americans collective throat.

And who gets fiscally punished if America adopts the suggestions from Elect A New Congress?   The very fat corporate cronies who have stolen so much money over the last decade or two that they can’t move that much money into the crucible of enterprise demanded by the tax, in order to avoid the tax.   In other words, those who will be punished are the very people who have stolen the most.

And if this tax plan is not considered and passed, it is because those who have stolen the most, are the very same people who have used their swag to purchase the President and Congress to do their bidding.

Now, can you think of a better reason to Elect A New Congress?

Who Pays How Much:

This Population Wealth Ratio is derived by dividing the % of Wealth Rank into the % of Income of that Class.    Then the Population Wealth Ratio is divided by the % of Taxes /Income Class to derive a Population Tax Ratio.

Large and in charge are the richest 1% of Americans who have a Population Tax Ratio of .51, making them the second least impacted Income Class after the lowest 50% (coming in at 1.282) by a healthy margin.

The less wealthy of the top 10% come in third at .2 followed by their betters chasing the “Super Rich” at .175.    Bringing up the rear is the late-great “Middle Class of America” at .12, and followed by that unfortunate 25% living just above the lowest 50% getting glued, screwed, and tattooed at .0075.

Keep in mind that low is bad, and good is high when you’re working with this Population Tax Ratio.    Where do you fit in the formerly great “Middle America”?  Where have you gone “Silent Majority”?

It’s an even greater injustice when you consider real estate taxes, gas pump tax, and sales tax, et al, which have a much greater regressive tax impact upon the income classes as they decline in wealth.

In fact, if you haven’t figured it out, our current tax system is regressive, not progressive, and it is aggressively so.    It makes it hard to support the Bush tax cuts for the most wealthy when the actual tax burden to the declining income class rank is actually much more regressive than anyone might have imagined, and by an incredibly wide margin.



Sign the Declaration

reset congress

The time has come to hit the Big Red Reset Button.

Sign the Declaration of Liberty to Elect a New Congress.

All American Voters.: Sign the Declaration of Liberty

Demand candidates to Congress to reclaim all Powers (Art I-Sec 8-US Con)

Greetings,

I just signed the following Declaration of Liberty addressed to: All 162,000,000 registered American voters..

----------------
Demand candidates to Congress to reclaim all Powers (Art I-Sec 8-US Con)

DECLARATION of AMERICAN LIBERTY

WHEREAS LIBERTY is defined as that State where the people rule over the government: This Declaration is given to underlining those critical terms required to ensure that Liberty, which is the original intent of our United States Constitution, be restored to the daily governance and operation of our United States Government.

To that revered document and America’s Declaration of Independence, this Declaration of American Liberty is subservient.

We acknowledge that Liberty requires all powers of the Congress be removed from the access and control of individuals, groups, or agencies; for it is only by usurpation of these powers, that factions gain control over the laws of the land and the lives of her people. It is this criminal and treasonous usurpation of power, that “ is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”

Further, that these restored powers of Congress are to be executed under the authority of all the people, re-establishing not only the power of Congress, but also its fiduciary duty to the people. The incorporation of the procedures inherent to Liberty in our government is our touchstone and the very cornerstone by which we judge our Liberty.

THEREFORE, We hereby sign and resolve ourselves and our representatives to,

Demand:

I.
Complete restoration of all constitutional powers of Congress, back to Congress, as written in Article I, sec. 7, 8, & 9, of our United States Constitution, and so restore operational Liberty in the execution of the business of the nation, causing two things to occur.

a. A nations political model determines its economic model with Liberty supplanting our centrally planned tyrannical state, which “once taken root is a plant of rapid growth.”
b. By taking power away from public and private agencies, it is removed from the hands of “unprincipled men” attracted to these very powers, and ends their means to transfer wealth away from all Americans.
c. This is the problem and enemy. Political Liberty is the solution.

II.
Congress wholly conduct and execute all introduction, discussion, compromise, and vote on all Acts, exercising their powers exclusively within the public forum on the floor of Congress, only thus they ensure;

a. Maximum Transparency in the execution of its duty which provides for,
b. True Consent of the Governed as required by our Declaration of Independence.

III.
The Necessary and Proper Clause (Elastic Clause), requires that the word, Proper, means all legislative and policy laws or decrees must be subject to the same process as any Act of Congress, performed exclusively and wholly within its public forum.

IV.
By Congress reformation, to perform its constitutional powers/duties and its demands upon its time, Congress must restore to the states those powers not specifically assigned to the Congress.

V.
Prosecution of all criminal and treasonous financial crimes prior to, during, and after the financial upheavals of 2008, must be pursued thoroughly regardless of any high standing or collateral impact.

Be Resolved: We either live in Liberty, or tyranny. We either rule our government, or be rule. We either all enjoy the bounty of our nation, or we wait for scraps from the hierarchy which rules our money, our lives, and our freedom, for Liberty means nothing if tyranny has one hand in your pocket and the other round your throat.

Liberty and tyranny are in dialectic opposition. They define each other by which they are not. Everyone must make their choice, and no decision is a decision for the status quo of tyranny that afflicts and rules the nation today.

THEREFORE, We the undersigned cast our lot and lives for Liberty.

“” G. Washington Excerpts: Farewell Speech to the Nation, September 19th, 1796 (words/terms)

DECLARATION of AMERICAN LIBERTY

WHEREAS LIBERTY is defined as that State where the people rule over the government: This Declaration is given to underlining those critical terms required to ensure that Liberty, which is the original intent of our United States Constitution, be restored to the daily governance and operation of our United States Government.
This Declaration of American Liberty supports and is subservient to America’s Declaration of Independence & our U.S. Constitution.
We the People, acknowledge that Liberty requires all powers of the Congress be removed from the access and control of individuals, groups, or agencies; for it is only by usurpation of these powers, that factions gain control over the laws of the land and the lives of her people. It is this criminal and treasonous usurpation of power, that “ is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.”*
Further, that these restored powers of Congress are to be executed under the authority of all the people, re-establishing not only the power of Congress, but also its fiduciary duty to the people. The incorporation of these procedures inherent to Liberty into our government is a touchstone and the very cornerstone upon which we judge our Liberty.
THEREFORE, We the People, hereby sign and resolve ourselves bind our representatives to, Demand:

Article I.
Complete restoration of all constitutional powers of Congress, back to Congress, as written in our United States Constitution, Article I, Sec. 7, 8, & 9, and so restores operational Liberty in the execution of the business of the nation. This causes two things to occur.
a. Liberty replaces our tyrannical centrally planned state. As a nations political model determines its economic model, so will “Liberty, once taken root, is a plant of rapid growth.”**
b. Liberty, by taking power away from public and private agencies, it removes from power the hands of “unprincipled men”*, and ends their means to transfer wealth away from all Americans. This is America’s problem and enemy. Political Liberty is the only solution.

Article II.
Congress wholly conduct and execute all introduction, discussion, compromise, and vote on all Acts, exercising their powers exclusively within the public forum on the floor of Congress, only thus they ensure;
a. Maximum Transparency in the execution of its duty which provides for,
b. True Consent of the Governed as required by our Declaration of Independence. This is the only means by which the people rule.

Article III.
The Necessary and Proper Clause (Sec 8), requires that the word “Proper” means all legislative and policy laws or decrees must be subject to the same process as any Act of Congress, performed exclusively and wholly within its public forum.

Article IV.
Congress must restore to the states those powers not specifically assigned to the Congress, as Congress, in order to perform its own powers/duties, will be pre-occupied in its reclaimed constitutional performance. This natural restriction of time inherent to these powers/duties will weigh in when there are questions.

Article V.
Prosecution of all criminal and treasonous financial crimes prior to, during, and after the financial upheavals of 2008, must be pursued thoroughly regardless of any high standing or collateral impact.
We the People either live in Liberty, or tyranny. We either rule our government, or be rule. We either all enjoy the bounty of our nation, or we wait for scraps from the hierarchy which rules our money, our lives, and our freedom. For Liberty means nothing if tyranny has one hand in your pocket and the other round your throat.
Liberty and tyranny are in dialectic opposition. Each defines the other by which they are not. Everyone must make their choice, and no decision, is a decision for the status quo of tyranny that afflicts and rules our nation today.
THEREFORE, We the undersigned cast our lot and lives for Liberty.
