The REAL Race to the Bottom
It is unfair that some have more than others. It is unfair that some are born rich, others poor. It is unfair that some people are smarter than others, It is unfair that some people have better skills than others. It is unfair that some people are luckier than others. It is unfair that some people have a higher energy level than others, and are willing to work longer, harder, smarter than others.
But is it JUST for the government to take what belongs to one person and give it to another against his will? Why is it any more just for government to do what you and I would go to prison for doing? Moreover, what kind of society are we likely to create when we provide increased incentives to become takers, fewer incentives to become or remain producers?
Let us start a state militia or state guard in Wisconsin. For one thing, a state militia would not be subject to a call by the president. They would be IN Wisconsin when we need them for one emergency or another. For another, it could stand as a line of defense against a national government gone wild. And third, some or all of the money could come from what is now given the national guard, which is largely federalized. Fourth, we could allow anyone who wants, to become a member of the militia. There could be standards, such as violent criminals would be excluded. Fifth, we could have militiamen keep their official weapons in their homes, as is done in Switzerland. Being government officials, the militiamen could have the latest in weapons technology, and of course would be exempt from the recent overreach of the president by way of executive orders.
I just heard a report that the Marxist in Chief, his majesty King Hussein Obama, is preparing an executive order to take away the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. As I recall from history this is a very similar tactic that Hitler used when he was establishing his dictatorship in Germany and replacing the Weimer Republic. How fascinating is that?
I also heard an emotional outcry from someone saying "Why do you need more than ten bullets to kill a deer?"
The false premise presented in that question is that the Second Amendment, our RIGHT to keep and bear arms, is intended for hunters. Do not let these Marxists trick you into that line of reasoning. Of course we don't NEED more than ten bullets to kill one deer. But we might need a 30 round clip in order to defend ourselves from a gang of thugs raping and pillaging through the neighborhood -- Chicago comes to mind because the state has made citizens there defenseless against the gang bangers.
Remember, Germany had strict gun registration laws too. It's part of the reason why Hitler was able to become a dictator...
"According to a Dec. 27th posting on Sen. Feinstein's website and a draft of the bill obtained by NRA-ILA, the new ban would, among other things, adopt new definitions of "assault weapon" that would affect a much larger variety of firearms, require current owners of such firearms to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act, and require forfeiture of the firearms upon the deaths of their current owners."
President Obama got what he demanded, a tax increase on the job-creating sector of America's economy - ‘the rich.’ It will harm economic growth, hinder new job creation and, at most, reduce our annual deficit by about 5%.
President Obama then left town with 95% of the deficits still unresolved. Treasury Secretary Geithner issued a statement on December 31st that the nation had already gone over the debt ceiling cliff - $16.4 trillion. President Obama blew through the most recent $2.1 trillion debt ceiling in only 17 months. This fiscal path is clearly unsustainable.
