Coming quickly on the heels of the Liberals' lying claims that we must disproportionately tax rich people, and that to allow them to keep their own money would be unfair because of its "cost" to the government and the liberals' need of our money due to their inability to stop spending, expect soon to see a serious, full court press by liberals to tax any and all wealth, not only income; and this will be the absolute end of prosperity and comfort in America.
Even if your IRA and 401K have lost serious value in the last two years they probably still have some value, although depleted, and since this money has been sheltered from taxation, liberals will claim that it has been gained at the expense and cost of the poor and of government, and now this selfish hoarding must be ended because it's causing hardship for the government, so along with your earned income, and in addition to any already-taxed savings or investments you may hold, the total sum of your personal wealth and life savings will be taxed, much of it for the second time.
When you consider that there is no longer a social security account that you can call your own (all social security money is coming directly from general revenue which is being bolstered by the incomes of young people who have no prayer of ever seeing a penny of the money being stolen from them to support retirees) and soon the government will be stealing your life savings, the final dagger in the heart of America is soon to follow.
Of course the government will never consider reducing its great outlays of cash by abolishing the administrative agencies that are taxing and regulating us into poverty (like the wasteful and ineffective departments of Energy and Education, and the immoral and hungry-for-power EPA) but it will tax formerly free and prosperous American citizens into poverty. Any government that taxes its citizens to the poverty level instead of reducing its own bloated staffing is immoral and does not deserve to exist.
The next congress MUST stand firm against this likely next push by Obama and his pals to further destroy this great nation. We'll all need to call and fax our representatives to keep them from taking the easy route and going along with the negative reasoning of the powerful and influential in Washington. The next two years will decide whether we and our children will live free and enjoy prosperity, or whether our government will destroy us all, because that's exactly what they are attempting to do.
