Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

American Liberals Blame The Rich and Successful
In a nation that believes that "all men are created equal", if liberals are able to soak the rich with extra taxes just because the wealthy are able to buy luxury items like personal jets, what will they be able to do to the middle class Americans who don't have tax protections created by fancy lawyers and influential friends in high places?
Obama and his liberal pals seem ridiculously hung up on the rich and are depending on class envy to persuade their base, and those who wish they were rich without being willing to work for it, that wealthy should pay extra taxes based solely on income (note that liberals usually concentrate on income and not total wealth holdings because they would lose the Kennedy, Rockefeller and other wealthy families' support in an effort based solely on total wealth). But placing additional taxes on jet aircraft would amount to nothing of substance when considering the financial hole Obama and his spending has gotten us into, and the amount of money paid for any tax is money that cannot be spent on other things, so if this idiotic proposal becomes law, it would allow the government to go on spending, on the reasoning that this extra money solved the trillion dollar hole we're in, but the general economy would suffer in proportion to the new revenue being diverted to the government.
But the biggest mistake Obama is making is insisting that the rich be denied money they've earned and that this money should be given to the government: in the opinion of liberals the government must never be denied money that it can waste buying votes and lowering the nation deeper into the spending hole, at the expense of private pockets.
And also be aware of the slippery definition of who the "rich" are. During the Clinton administration it was announced that those making $50,000 a year were rich because in 20 years they will make $1,000,000. If this proposal to place extra taxes on the wealthy goes through we are all in line to have our wealth confiscated. Most of us have 401K or other savings and retirement accounts that the government could easily declare to be of a wealthy value, and they could therefore take from it as they please. We are treading on dangerous ground with this, which is one of many dubious actions and proposals from the immoral Obama administration.
