Most firms pay no income taxes - Congress

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) examined samples of corporate tax returns filed between 1998 and 2005. In that time period, an annual average of 1.3 million U.S. companies and 39,000 foreign companies doing business in the United States paid no income taxes - despite having a combined $2.5 trillion in revenue.

John McCain receives Social Security and medicare both socialist programs. McCain is a hypocrite and he lies to his supporters.

The 71-year-old presumptive GOP nominee's tax returns showed a total income of $405,409 last year - including $23,157 from Social Security - and $118,660 paid in federal income taxes, the McCain campaign said Friday

That would be correct - here is your kicker - they pass it along to you. So when you vote for your Obama on the 5th - just remember that the handouts he proposes have numerous effects, but the first two are:
Corporate income taxes that are passed along to the consumer in terms of the products and services bought.
Secondly - to the smaller private business owners (yes the folks $200k< - this results in loss of jobs, loss of benefits, etc in order to offset tax expenses.

Receiving socialist gov benefits is one thing. Millions of Americans do and McCain himself said it needs to be reeled in.

Proposing to change our economic system from capitalist to Socialist, as Obama was caught espousing, is clearly another.

Why would we want another Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro in the world running our country?

Obama's biggest enemy is himself.

1- Obama's Health Care model used in Hawaii just imploded. It doesn't work.

1A- Obama snubbed Hillary for a Washington Insider and gaffe master.

2- Obama's Socialist/Communist quote to Joe Plumber "We want to Spread the Wealth". Punishes success & rolls back Welfare Reform.

3- Obama verbally attacks Joe the Plumber and sends his attack machine after him just because he asked a question. Shows that he doesn't take kindly to anyone questioning him if he ends up looking like a fool.

4- Obama's Tax Increases (repeal current) to people starting at around $37K. Already said he's doing this.

5- Obama sponsoring Global Poverty Bill that will force us to pay the United Nations about 1% of our GDP annually.

6- Obama not backing Nuclear Power Plants, Offshore Drilling, or Clean Coal. He says "Inflate your tires" to save fuel!

7- Obama says he doesn't have a problem with $4 gal gas. Thinks it's good for us. He just wished the price rose steadier instead of all at once.

8- Obama said "the US cannot win in Iraq". Maliki gov declared Victory several months ago.

9- Obama said "the Surge Strategy will not work in Iraq".

10- Obama said to his San Francisco supporters that people in small towns were bitter, clinging to their guns and religion. Now he's saying that there are no bad parts of this country. We're all great.

11- Obama said he wasn't close to Terrorist Bill Ayers during the debates yet records show he worked directed for him and had many, many discussions. Also find that he launched his political career at Terrorist Bill Ayers house. Ayers wife is suspected by the FBI for killing 2 SF Police Officers with a bomb years ago.

12- Obama said that he NEVER HEARD his mentor for 20+ years, Rev Jeremiah Wright, make bigoted, anti-American hate speech and sermons YET 6 weeks later, finally ADMITTED that Obama had indeed heard these things. He did leave the church until Rev Wright called Obama a typical "politician, that would do & say anything to get elected".

13- Obama said the Tony Rezko convicted of several felonies earlier this year and is to be sentenced next month, was NOT THE PERSON I KNEW yet is the person that he struck many deals with including a purchase of his Mansion & adjacent lot. Both lot & Mansion were bought from same person on the same day yet Obama claims he didn't know Rezko was buying the lot. THE SAME LOT THAT OBAMA WOULD BUY JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER FROM REZKO!

14- Obama said his grandmother was "a Typical White Person". Translation = you're all the same.

15- Obama said he did Not vote against giving medical attention to living babies that survived an abortion YET the Illinois transcripts of his speech and Votes show that Obama did Indeed Vote Against this Bill four times. He was the only senator to ever make a speech on the floor telling others why they should vote NO even though his claims were baseless.

16- Obama said he's against Lobbyist & Lobbying YET worked with Lobbyist Hunter Biden (joe's son) and gave him a $200,000 Earmark payment for special interest.

17- Obama said he's for accountability & honesty yet gave a $100,000 Earmark to a campaign workers spouse to build a Gazebo in Chicago. It was never completed. How is paying campaign workers and not following up fit with the rhetoric?

Etc. Etc.

His other foes are Joe Biden, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Bill Clinton, and the American Voters.
