CNS News ^ | 6/10/13 | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 06/10/2013 7:26:47 AM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama says Democrats "don't want to tax all businesses out of business."

"I know that there are a few Republicans here in the audience," Obama said Friday at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign in Palo Alto, Ca. "If you talk to us, it turns out we're pretty common-sense folks.

"We don't think government can do everything," he said. "We don't think that top-down solutions are the right way to go. We believe in the free market. We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations."

How can we know if he is telling us the truth. I’ve got it on record that he has been telling us lies.

Just the non-union shops. Probably why he loves California, we seem to be a good model for his latest proclamation.

Just all the small businesses.

It’s so much easier to control a few giant corps through the government than it is to control the myriad small businesses that make up the bulk of employers in the USA.

It’s what fascists do. And yes, the left are fascists.

Just small business. People that work for large corporations are under the goveernment’s thumb already. People who own their own business are loose canons that the government wants to nueter.

I have an acquaintence that billed himself out as an IT contractor for $100 an hour. He had two others that he billed out at the same rate and paid them $70 an hour. He had a state business license and paid all stte fees and business taxes.

He had not filed a federal income tax return in over ten years and this was in Washington state, where there is no state income tax.

I’ve not seen him in about 12 years. I don’t know if he’s still “free”, but I know he was a Larkin Rose advocate. I still have the VHS tape he gave me which outlines why we don’t have to pay fed income tax.

But as an employee with withholding, it’s hard for me to do that. It’s easy for the self employed.

That said, the GOP is running out of room.

We either make things in America, or we export them.

We have exported so many US businesses, now our technological leadership in the globe is threatened.

The GOP needs to stop exporting businesses. We need to bring back US businesses, and compete.

Sure there are problems the dems have introduced, but sending our businesses to China makes an even bigger problem.

Bring back US jobs.

How about taxing the politicians and charging them for their failed policies, like Obamacare premiums skyrocketing?

Obama did not say we don't want to force any business to fail. He did not even say we don't want to force many businesses to fail or most businesses to fail. He didn't say we don't want to make it more difficult for businesses to succeed. He did not say we do not want to threaten businesses and extort money from them.

He said “We don't want to tax ALL business out of business.”

Not even most. Just any businesses that do not kowtow to King Barry and that do not embrace (and bend over for) the Socialist policies of King Barry and his Socialcrat Party. After all...he DID mention rewarding friends and punishing enemies. Every now and then, albeit rarely, a glimmer of truth does shine through all of the BS, lies and propaganda from the leftists.

Ignore the words. Watch his actions. If you believe what he says you deserve what you get.

John, are you moonlighting as his speechwriter?

On another note, the White House is hoping the "Obama Harmonizer" will be ready before the end of the year. They have a list of ready targets, thanks to the IRS.
