Great piece as usual bud.
In November once we take over the Senate lets give our vets the same insurance our Senators and House members have. After that let’s start gutting big government. We can start with EPA and work down from there.
Don't be so sure. After Mitch McConnell won his primary this week, a huge amount of people here says they'd rather vote for the democrat, Grimes, than him, because he's a RINO.
I hope this isn't another election where millions of us stay home. Those who wanted Bevins to defeat McConnell did.
Here's the turnout from Tuesday's vote:
# Eligible voters / # voted / Percentage
2,980,008 / 415,337 / 13.9
Only 14 % voted! This is why WE (TEA Party/Conservatives) lose. I'm not saying it's universal, but if people in Kentucky hate McConnell so much, they really should have voted Bevins. Turning around now and saying you'll vote democrat is not the answer...
I am really so tired of all the TALKERS who do nothing but complain about RINOs but don't show up at the primaries. Primaries everywhere have dismal turnouts. They are the PRIMARY place to defeat RINOs.
But what we REALLY need to gut is the Internal Revenue Service and the income tax code based on Title 26, the Internal Revenue code. Like I said before, look at what is wrong with our income tax code:
1. 30,000 tax lobbyists--HALF the lobbyists in Washington, DC--fighting for every scrap of a tax loophole. And you get political corruption on a huge scale over this.
2. The result is a tax code over 70,000 pages long so complex that it makes James Joyce's Finnegans Wake almost easy to read in comparison. Even the IRS can't figure out much of the tax code!
3. The sheer complexity means exorbitant yearly compliance costs, estimated by some economists to soon approach US$500 BILLION per year (and climbing fast in each subsequent year, especially with the imposition of Obamacare mandates through the tax code).
4. It also encourages the outsourcing of millions of jobs, thousands of factories, and hundreds of corporate headquarters for tax avoidance reasons. Care to explain why Apple manufactures its products in China, and why Google has to used that highly-complex and expensive Double Irish with Dutch Sandwich accounting scheme to lower its tax bill?
5. It results in (by some estimates) around US$15 TRILLION in American-owned liquid assets sitting in offshore financial centers and other foreign banks for tax avoidance reasons (care to explain all those "banks" in the Cayman Islands, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, and so on? Or why Apple has 70% of its US$100+ billion liquid asset reserve outside the USA?).
6. Government uses the tax code as a political instrument to favor or punish political constituencies as little as ONE taxpaying entity. The recent scandal using the IRS to target conservative 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) groups is clear proof of this.
7. Because the IRS needs to know intimate details of personal and business financial records in tax return filings, there are potentially serious issues with invasion of privacy. Care to explain why former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's private tax returns ended up in the offices of Senator Harry Reid (D-NV)?
8. The IRS assumes you're guilty of tax evasion, and you end up having less rights than most common criminals!
Now you know the reason for my tagline.
