Years Riding: Do I have to start over now?
How you found us: Followed the Bread Crumbs...
Progressive liberalism, socialistic regulative control, is failing across the world. Being Liberal and "progressively" liberal are two very different things in my mind...and unfortunately, for all the blameshifting talk of the right being seized by some sort of extremist tendency, it is the left that has moved farther in that direction than they've ever publicly done before.
...why? Because they're out of money, and they know it. When the lower half of earner pay no income tax, because you've worked their dependency that way, and the size of Government has expanded to such an extent that the upper half can no longer support it, you start looking at every pathway to "revenue" possible. In government, revenue means taxes or fees, that simple.
This is the last throws of a completely failed methodology. The system doesn't work, not in the way they publicly present it anyway...cracks in the facade are showing, and you're starting to see the true intent here.
It's very scary indeed, but at the end of they day, they're out of money...and now that the budget truisms are presenting themselves you'll start to see more and more of this crap...because despite all the talk of "compromise" they want none, they want congress to agree to tax hikes, which they're starting to...but all prior talk of concurrent cuts in spending are now being backpedaled, in a major way.
The money has to come from somewhere, at the end of the day it has to be from your pocket.
Equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.
