America Commits Suicide

Here lies the United States of America
Born: July 4, 1776
Died: November 6, 2012

The Will of the People Has Spoken, and America Died

The End of an Empire

Our Constitutional Republic died a peaceful death on November 6, 2012. Having reached the point of no return in a comatose state after years of progressive and illegal immigration assaults, the fabric of conservative society is now completely unraveled and Uncle Sam’s America is no more.

The United States of America is now relegated to the dust bin of history as a “has been” empire. The Shining City on the Hill, the hope of so many millions since July 4, 1776, no longer exists. What rises from the ashes is a country that few of us will recognize, like, or learn to accept submissively.

After 236 years of existence, a new country emerges today, run by secular progressives who rejected our Constitution, what we stand for, and who we are as a nation. The Supreme Court will be forever altered after its last conservative members will be replaced by the liberal academics who call themselves “progressives.” The rule of law will be implemented by Executive Orders, making Congress irrelevant.

The communist motto “Forward” that resonated with so many ignorant Americans will plunge us into many years of darkness from which we will never be able to recover. We have proven our Founding Fathers right, they did give us a Constitutional Republic and we were unable to maintain it.

The forces of the failed communist fundamental transformation that were driven underground in many places around the world, resurfaced with a vengeance in the United States and have now taken over.

How long we will still have freedom of speech, movement, assembly, and control of our private property remains to be seen. Faith and churches will be driven underground; allowing secularism to prosper and take deep roots among the progressives whose God is Mother Earth.

The welfare-dependent Americans, unions, and illegal aliens have chosen for the rest of us the dark path of serfdom to big government and to socialist utopia.

Who would have guessed that the very people who were complaining that the government is not extricating them from disaster or giving them the help they needed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, would vote for the very politicians who turned their backs on needy Americans after the lights went dark when the political photo opportunities ended?

Who would have guessed that Americans were as ignorant and irresponsible as to choose fiscal destruction over fiscal sanity for their children and grandchildren, secularism and communism over faith, dependence over personal responsibility and self-reliance?

Americans have been protesting for the last four years the dismal state of the economy and the direction of our country, the corruption of our politicians, and the loss of personal and economic freedom.

Rallies in support of conservatism overwhelmed venues for Mitt Romney while rallies for our bumbling President became scarcer and scarcer. Yet, miraculously, at the ballot box, our President won all over the country.

We lost seats in the Senate. Americans chose liars and cheats to be their Senators and Representatives, rejecting those who protected the Constitution. The candidate from Massachusetts who claimed direct American Indian lineage to Pocahontas is now a Senator, having defeated Scott Brown. Representative Allen West lost his seat by a narrow margin to the infamous Wasserman Schultz from Florida.

Americans chose high unemployment, reduction of our military, communist indoctrination of their children, and loss of personal freedoms unlike we have never seen before

<quoted text>look genius don't try and act or pretend that you know how the tax code works or how to figure up just how tax plans work when you do not have a degree in such field nor have ever worked for any profession that has been involved in such field.. do not try to pretend your an expert on something you have no experiance in... you can sit there with your little numbers all you want and keep figuring over and over how to 0 out the budget but that's not going to happen immediatly through this deal period... the goal is to control our budget get back our rating and pay down the deficit.. so get it right there are no miracles after a decade of wastefull spending and uncontrolled spending... i told you what? we're in the S%&* so we have to dig ourselves out... don't look for an unrealistic answer to a situation that will take decades to control and overcome ... Ignorance got us into this mess, and good informed educated decisions will get us out... and that CBO report was ran back in Febuary 2012 things have changed i just posted that to get your ignorance to stop... but apparently nothing sinks in ... 4T is what we have to get to that's what offer is on the table just accept that and get over this over-reading into things... if you were a tax professionalist or economist guess what you'd be at work right now doing those things and would not question what top economists and other tax professionalist backed by independant researchers have already said "may not be a quick fix, but is a substantial plan to grow our economy in the long term" so get real with your BS .. i'm tired of hearing about how YOU cannot comme up with the numbers... that's because YOU are looking for and at all the wrong numbers... and YOU did not go to school to figure this equation out so don't get mad at me because your choice in job carrers is not in economics nor in tax policy... so with that being said you can say all day everyday tht this will not work and i will not care because trained "professionals" have said that this is a fair way to come to terms with balancing the budget.
By your post, I can only assume that you are an accountant or something tax related. You would have to be to make a post like the one above, though I bet you are not in any field close to a tax professional. That means you know no more than I do yet you wouldn't know that from your posts. The other thing is that your post is a great argument for my point of view. You posted a CBO report from Feb 2012 and then said things have changed. That must mean that report no longer is valid. You then stick with the argument that $4 trillion is the magic number even though you admit things have changed. Hey, at least that number didn't change as it has in your past couple of posts. You said that I am looking at all the wrong numbers...THEY WERE THE NUMBERS YOU GAVE ME!!! I don't even think those numbers are correct. I just used them so you wouldn't have a complaint, yet here you are. "Trained professionals" is who have been figuring this out for decades and where has that gotten us? BTW, I am completely happy with my career choice and want nothing to do with the tax code but a fifth grader that has a simple lemonade stand and a calculator could easily see that the path we are on is unsustainable. Let's just wait and see how it plays out. My guess is that the situation will "change" again giving you a completely different argument to make.

Abortion is NOT a political issue. Politicians need to quit acting like it is. It is a moral issue. We all have different morals.
Reality is, there is a BABY in there- no matter how many months along it is.
Some people always have to bring rape into the equation when the topic of abortion comes up. More often than not, it is NOT from a rape. It is from two irresponsible people playing grown-up and craeting a child they both KNOW they could be creating because it feels good and they don't have the wherewithall to say "NO" and mean it. This goes for BOTH parties. Once they realize how "inconvenienced" they will be with a kid, they decide the baby should pay with it's life for their stupid, self-centered moment of fun.
I say tough. You created it, you KNEW you were possibly creating it- Now act like the responsible adult you were trying to be during your moment of adult fun and raise your kid! If you really are that SELFISH and don't want to be bothered by "IT," then adopt it out to someone who truly wants a child.
BTW, I also believe that the woman should not have the final say in the matter. The baby belongs to TWO PEOPLE EQUALLY, not just one. The man should have half of the decision. If he wants his child, she carries it to term, like it or not!
Abortion and birth control are no more than vehicles used to sensationalize issues for uninformed voters and to demonize those opposed to it. It gives the uninformed something to fight for that is not as boring as budget issues and fiscal cliffs. What's sad is that it actually works on our voting public.

look.. the magic number is still 4t as a goal.. but we will probably fall a little short of that number .. and the numbers i gave you were correct .. but you were not taking in all the underlying changes and factors that have came with time and are still to come.. republicans thank goodness have proposed their bill and now the 2 need to just mesh out their differences and come to a compromise with common ground.. and i garuntee it is not just as black and white as everyone thinks it is .. there are alot of circumstances, consequences, and factors that play into balancing and budgeting any nations economy.. it's not as simple as balancing a bank account

Oh it is that simple. Politicians just make it more complex than that. You simply predict the revenue based on previous years, prioritize spending, if there is not enough revenue to account for all spending either adjust spending levels to fit more programs in or simply cut programs out all together that are not absolutely necessary. If more revenue is taken in than is anticipated, you simply look to add some of the fringe programs that didn't make the cut in the previous year. It's exactly like a business budget. Now, I understand that is not the way it happens now. Politicians face way too many hands that are being held out looking for kickback pieces of legislation for their cause or state or whatever. It's not the politicians money anyway so they don't care. If it was their money, we wouldn't be in the spot we are in.

I did not, actually put my bet on your hero. People will nearly always vote for the person telling them what they want to hear, not what they need to hear, therefore Obama was a safe bet (for the wager, not the country)

Just so you know, the republican offer is no better than Obama's. It's equally as pathetic and a smoke screen. Again, the politicians know that if they throw out big numbers, reguardless of how long it takes to reach that number, then the public will eat it up and they are right. They even have people like you arguing for them that the formula is too complex for it to be a matter of simple addition and subtraction. Most others have no clue and don't really care as long as they can get through this day without a disaster that takes everything they have. They think that if this day is ok then why would any other day be not ok. It's embarrassing.

Tell that to the British who passed a High Earner surtax similar to what Obama wants. How did it work? According to the British Treasurey:

"The Treasury received £10.35 billion in income tax payments from those paying by self-assessment last month, a drop of £509 million compared with January 2011. Most other taxes produced higher revenues over the same period."

That facts simply don't support your argument...

No, we agree that you have low self esteem and are threatened by anyone you perceive to be smarter so you constantly attack just about everyone. Yes, that is something that we agree on.
