Hold On To Your Wallet and Your Freedom

The election coming up is critical for our country.  If the vote is to reelect the president and Senate, then the country is doomed to socialism -- a method of governing that has failed every time it has been tried.  

Here is what it means to you:

Taxes.  This is what it will cost you next year if the present tax plans are not rescinded.  Find your category and see the reality. 

What could you do with that amount of money instead of giving it to the government?  Maybe make a down payment on that new bike you have been eying? 

Health Care.  You will soon be covered by Obamacare (there will be no alternatives that can compete with it), but be sure you don't get seriously ill.  You will wait a very long time for routine procedures.  You might die before you are treated...but that way there would be more money to treat someone else who is more favored by the IRS, the administrators of the system.  Same as in Great Britain and Canada.  Read about it here.  By the way, how comfortable do you feel having the Internal Revenue Service in charge of your health?  For me, not so comfortable.  Maybe the DMV people would be better. What do you think? 

Also, if you don't want to pay for Obamacare, you are free not to do so, but then you have to pay a penalty of $2000+ every year.  In a few years, if you are fond of, say, eating cheeseburgers, you may be denied treatment because you didn't take good enough care of yourself.  Or, say, if you ride a motorcycle, you will not be treated because you took part in risky behavior. 

Morality.  If you are religious, or even if you are not but are interested in truth, here is some of what the Democrat Party platform stands for.  They stand for gay marriage, and abortion at will paid for by our tax dollars -- both intrinsically evil.  The Republican Party platform, on the other hand, encourages self-reliance, less interference of government in our lives, freedom from dependency on government, and contains nothing in support of anything intrinsically evil.

Right to Bear Arms.  The second amendment to the United States Constitution reads, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."  The reason for this amendment is not to facilitate hunting and target shooting; it is to facilitate self-defense, against both government oppression and private aggression.  The right to bear arms is in the Bill of Rights because that's the last form of defense against such tyranny.  Hilary Clinton and the Obama State Department have been working long and hard to make us beholden to the United Nations whose despot members want to disarm Americans

Regulations.  Government is stifling us individually, as well as our places of work, with regulation.  What they cannot tax, they regulate.  Whenever there is a regulation written, we all have to figure out how it applies to us, then comply with it.  That takes money -- money that could otherwise be spent for new equipment, or raises for employees, or more employees (or motorbikes).

Tiny example: Do we really need the government to tell us we must wear a helmet when we ride a motorcycle?  It is not such a great idea to ride without a lid, but should the government decide for you?  Maybe your insurance company should charge more if you don't want to wear one, but the government should not regulate it. 

The Bottom Line.
Add Senate Democrats to that. 

Cast your vote carefully, friends.  

There may never be another chance to save America.
