I've got a bridge to sell you

Last year BO was saying that he would not raise taxes on anyone making less than $300,000 a year. Then that number turned to $250,000. Last week he suggested that he might raise taxes for those making $200,000. Then Biden said that the number should be $150,000. Today, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson said that Obama was planning a tax cut for those making less than $120,000. The record shows that last year, BO voted to raise taxes on everyone who pays income taxes. That would be $42,500. So we have slid from $300,000 clear down to $42,500.

The problem is that BO has no intention of cutting anyone's taxes. Never has. Never will. To quote Joe Biden, "Mark my words". It won't happen.

Remember Bill Clinton's campaign promise to cut the taxes of middle class taxpayers. It took him about a month in the White House to forget that promise and instead raise taxes on the middle class.

BO has promised a trillion dollars of new spending. Money for this, money for that. Wealth transfers from the productive to the unproductive. Health care for everyone. More money for his buddies in ACORN in thanks for their fraudulent voter registrations to help him get elected. Spending your money is how Democrats increase their power, and power is what this is all about for BO. He is not about to give up power. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. There is not a single instance from BO's voting record which indicates that he will ever cut tax rates. The idea is diametrically opposed to everything he is as a politician.

So forget the ever-shrinking number and just realize that when BO is President, he will take even more of your hard-earned money to run his government programs.

Apropos to Halloween, Dracula (i.e. the Government under Democratic rule) is preparing to suck the lifeblood from this nation formerly known as the United States of America.

Algore wanted to build us the "Bridge to the 21st Century".

BHO similarly wants to build us a bridge, across which will be conveniently situated what F. A. Hayek called "The Road to Serfdom".

Whether we cross that bridge is up to us.
