Tea Partying; Because Barack is a Socialist

May 4, 2012

Before I was aware that Obama, in fact, used his executive power to REDUCE taxes, I wrote a comparison between the Tea Party and the original Boston Tea Party for U.S. History. It is slightly embarassing, but ‘I enjoy looking back at my roots and showing my progress via my blog here at Secular Morality. Here it is:

The Tea Party movement began in 2009 as a protest against the economic stimulus package. The main goal of this party is to decrease the government’s power in America by cutting taxes and spending. The majority of the Tea Party supporters are conservative, white, male, married, and over 45; they are wealthier and better-educated than the general public. Considering the movement began only 2 short years ago, the Tea Party has been successful in helping increase conservative views throughout the country.

The purpose of the Tea Party movement and the American revolutionary movement are very similar; however, the

problems they were formed to address were caused by very different sources. Both parties were formed by a group of

people who felt they government they were under was too strict. The American revolutionary movement was formed to stop the British government from taxing the colonies, due to a massive debt caused by the French and Indian war. Now this is where the difference between the two movements is; the Tea Party was formed to stop a government from overtaxing to fix a debt that the American citizens created themselves, by electing socialist leaders to govern a capitalist country. The Tea Party was formed by a group of individuals wealthier and better-educated than the general public, this is because they strived to succeed in life, and for the most part have succeeded. The American revolutionary movement was an attempt to preserve what they created, and the Tea Party attempt to return America to what it once was; a conservative, anti-communist, consumer based, capitalist country.

(Yes, I did embolden wealthier and better educated in the original)

 

To show where I am now on my journey through the ever-changing political spiral here is what I posted recently:

Here is a list of the socialist regime’s actions against the people thus far. I have included a “Socialist-o-meter” rating in parenthesis after each of the bullet points.

The first bill signed by President Obama regarding taxes was the American Recovery and Reinvestment Actwhich effectively:

  • CUT taxes for 95% of working class families (0/10)
  • Gave 70% of the tax cuts to the middle 60% of American workers(4/10)

Then we saw The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Re-authorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 which:

  • Extends middle class tax cuts to prevent a typical working family from facing a tax increase of over $2,000 on January 1 (0/10)
  • Provides a 2% payroll tax cut to 159 million workers – providing the typical working family with an additional $1,000 tax cut (0/10)

The most recent action being  Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 which:

  • Extends unemployment insurance so that millions of Americans who are looking for work will still be able to depend on the vital lifeline of unemployment insurance (6/10)
  • Includes important reforms that the President proposed in the American Jobs Act to help discourage businesses from laying off workers and to connect workers with jobs. (4/10)
Its a shame, my calculator added that up to be 14/60 in socialist points. I spend over $100 on the damned thing and it doesn’t even know that Obama is a socialist! Now, I do understand that Obama intends to raise the taxes on the 2% of Americans who make over $250,000 a year. If one wants to call this socialism, he must also call Eisenhower a socialist also.
Let us compare the two presidents’ income tax policies for the wealthy:

Dwight D. Eisenhower (Republican)

  • Marginal Tax Rate on Regular Income over $400,000: 92% – 91%

Barack Hussein Obama (Socialist)

  • Marginal Tax Rate on Regular Income: over $372,950 – over 388,350: 35%

If you feel that any information is inaccurate, feel free to report it. Please prove me wrong, but do not say that I am biased towards Obama without disproving any of the facts I have provided.

Are You Going to Bite Little Doggy?

March 30, 2012

With the 2012 presidential election around the corner, many American’s try to figure out what they have missed in the last four years. Of course, there will be many on the Right who believe Obama has taxed this country into oblivion. They will  believe that Obama alone is responsible for the rising gas prices. So the question remains, what has Obama done?

Obama has actually cut taxes. Sure this helps keep American wallets a little bit fatter, but I would rather see taxes raised. Bill Maher,

although he donated $1,000,000 to Obama’s re-election efforts, has been very critical of some of Obama’s decisions. Maher argued that this country needs a 3rd party, a real leftist party. I support a nationalized health care system, but I do not support a health care system that no one contributes to.

Part of the Social Contract that must be present in a socialized system must include requirements an individual must meet to be taken care of by society. It is not enough to be entitled to benefits because you were born in America.

So do I agree with the Right? Yes.

The solution, however, is not to throw out healthcare. It is to require something in exchange for healthcare.

So Obama, stop barking. Bite.


White Supremacist Charged for Killing a Black Man With His Truck

March 22, 2012

James Craig Anderson was run over by 19 year old Deryl Dedmon last June. James was a 47 year old blackman who had no prior connections with Deryl, he just happened to be the first black man Deryl and his group of white racist friends came across.

My personal theory on the extraordinarily cruel racism that still occur on a day-to-to basis comes from the Stanford experiments conducted in the 1970’s. They gave evidence to suggest that one is not born evil, but when one is put into a situation where he can choose evil he will be more likely to do so. Deryl had been risen in an environment where racism was able to be conducted with little to

no consequences. He had to cross a bridge to go “man-hunting” because he lived on the “white” side of town.

Yes, we have come a long way since Hiester Clymer ran on a white supremacy platform in 1866. This does not, however, mean that we have put an end to racism.

A recent exit poll revealed that only 52% of  people who voted in the deep south’s Republican primaries believed interracial marriage should be legal.

The Mormon religion believed that black people were Cain’s descendants, eternally marked with blackness until 1970.

And then there are things like this:

The majority of African Americans did not vote for Barack Obama because of the color of his skin. They voted for him because he understood that schools must be improved, and for every child, not just the children whose parents could afford it. They voted for him because they knew under the current system those who inherit money do not have to work a day of their life, but can invest it and have it make money for them. They voted for him because he did not support unjustified wars.

I believe it is important to realize that this sentiment exists within people, and it is only fostered under their current environment. Please, do your best to end the cycle of perpetual poverty and unending racism.

What America Can Learn From Germany’s Newly Elected Anti-Communist President

March 20, 2012

Joachim Gauck was elected president of Germany Sunday, taking an overwhelming 991 of the 1,232 ballots cast. What is interesting, however, is that he ran independent of any political party.

Although I differ with Gauck on Marxism, I think that Americans may have much to learn from Germany. From the time a child is born in America he or she is told to fit into a specific category of people. The same is true in American politics. For example, Santorum believes that sometimes it is necessary to “take one for the team.” There should be no teams in politics, but I do believe that political parties are sometimes inevitable as admitted by Thomas Paine. The issue in America is that people vote according to their team, and not according to moral conviction. For some reason it has become acceptable to support candidates who will vote on issues because their peers tell them to do so.

If peer pressure is not an acceptable excuse in high school, it should not be used as an excuse by our leaders.


The Right’s Ignorance of the Consequences of Their Own Plans

March 16, 2012

When one looks at Rick Santorum’s First 100 Days Economic Freedom Agenda the first thing he says he will do to improve the economy is:

UNLEASH AMERICA’S ENERGY: I’ll approve the Keystone Pipeline for jobs and energy security.  I’ll sign an order unleashing America’s domestic energy production without picking winners and losers on Day One.  I’ll allow states to choose where they want to explore for oil and natural gas and to set their own regulations for hydrofracking.

While I believe the Keystone Pipeline is something that should be approved I would like to call attention to the last part of this plan. Hydrofracking.

Allow me to explain hydrofracking to you. Blast chemicals into the ground in order to make a hole to take oil from. While I am not as concerned about natural gas’s effect on the environment, I am concerned about how desperate we have become. These chemicals poison the air, water supply, and animals in the surrounding area. I also have to include HUMANS in that list.

While the right may not care about animals, I beg that they will stop when there is a direct impact on humans as well.
