America: Prepare For An Avalanche Of Taxes

April 5, 2010

by J.D. Longstreet

(Editor’s Note: Secession solves this problem.)

Occasionally, someone who really knows what he or she is talking about actually speaks. Such is the case in the article by Timothy P. Cahill formerly the Democratic state treasurer of Massachusetts. (He is now running for governor as an independent.)

In an article titled: “Timothy P. Cahill: Romneycare’s failure teaches need to repeal Obamacare” Mr. Cahill says the following: “Despite our warnings about the damage done by RomneyCare, the President and Congressional Democrats ignored the will of the American people and passed the bill anyway. Now we must send a message to Congress loud and clear: “Repeal and replace ObamaCare.” Mr. Cahill goes on to say: “The only reason RomneyCare has survived at all is that we have been propped up by the federal government over and over again. But this begs the question of who will bail out the federal government when ObamaCare goes into effect.”

Finally, Mr. Cahill says this: “There is still time to repeal and replace this bill before it is implemented. That’s exactly what we have to do-before it is too late. You may read the entire article HERE.

So how ARE we supposed to pay for ObamaCare? TAXES, TAXES and MORE TAXES!!

In an article at The Washington Examiner entitled: “Slow-growth Europe, here we come” author Irwin Stelzer makes the following statement: “His (Obama) fiscal plan is to raise taxes; his political calculation is that Americans will come to love their new entitlements and rank him with Franklin Delano Roosevelt in their pantheon of heroes.”

Mr. Stelzer goes on to say: “Next on the president’s list is the financial services sector: More and in some instances better regulation of banks, procedures for winding down busted banks without massive taxpayer bailouts, consumer protection, control of bankers’ compensation systems. On to the energy and education sectors, both also on Obama’s “transformation” list. Mr. Stelzer’s conclusion is as follows: “When the transformation of America is complete, the country will have been moved in the direction of the European social welfare state. You may read the entire article Here.

Months ago we warned that Americans should prepare for a new “VAT TAX.” That is a Value Added Tax. I don’t think anyone took us seriously at the time — no matter that this scribe was dead serious!
In any event, rest assured that the President’s Commission on Fiscal Reform would suggest a European style VAT tax.

So – what the heck IS a VAT Tax? Well, you’d better sit down for this one: A VAT tax is a Value Added Tax. Below is a comparison of sales tax and a VAT tax (from Wikipedia) we hope will shed SOME light on a VAT tax. You may read the entire article HERE.)

“Value added tax (VAT), or goods and services tax (GST) is a consumption tax (CT) levied at each stage that value is added to a product or service. VAT is an indirect tax, in that the tax is collected, and paid to the state, by someone who does not bear the cost of the tax. In contrast to sales tax, the number of steps there are between the first producer and the final consumer is neutral in terms of tax charged, whereas sales tax is levied on total value at each stage, resulting in a cascade effect (at each stage tax is levied on the tax levied at the previous stage.

Ok, here is an example comparing a VAT TAX to a sales tax:

Consider the manufacture and sale of any item, which in this case we will call a widget. In what follows , the term “gross margin” is used rather than “profit”. Profit is only what is left after paying other costs, such as rent and personnel.

Without any tax:
A widget manufacturer spends $1.00 on raw materials and uses them to make a widget.
The widget is sold wholesale to a widget retailer for $1.20, making a gross margin of $0.20.
The widget retailer then sells the widget to a widget consumer for $1.50, making a gross margin of $0.30.

With a North American (Canadian provincial and U.S. state) sales tax:
With a 10% sales tax:
The manufacturer pays $1.00 for the raw materials, certifying it is not a final consumer.
The manufacturer charges the retailer $1.20, checking that the retailer is not a consumer, leaving the same gross margin of $0.20.
The retailer charges the consumer $1.65 ($1.50 + $1.50×10%) and pays the government $0.15, leaving the gross margin of $0.30.

With a value added tax:
With a 10% VAT:
The manufacturer pays $1.10 ($1 + $1×10%) for the raw materials, and the seller of the raw materials pays the government $0.10.
The manufacturer charges the retailer $1.32 ($1.20 + $1.20×10%) and pays the government $0.02 ($0.12 minus $0.10), leaving the same gross margin of $0.20.
The retailer charges the consumer $1.65 ($1.50 + $1.50×10%) and pays the government $0.03 ($0.15 minus $0.12), leaving the gross margin of $0.30 (1.65-1.32-.03).

OK – Complicated enough for you? The bottom line is this: There will be a humongous increase in the price of everything you purchase, which is covered by a VAT tax. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

Charles Krauthammer has authored a piece entitled: “The ‘value added tax’ is coming to America” In his article Krauthammer says: “People are used to sales taxes, and this one produces a river of revenue. Every 1 percent of VAT would yield up to $1 trillion a decade (depending on what you exclude – if you exempt food the yield would be more like $900 billion).

It’s the ultimate cash cow. Obama will need it. By introducing universal health care, he has pulled off the largest expansion of the welfare state in four decades. And the most expensive. Which is why all of the European Union has the VAT. Huge VATs. Germany: 19 percent. France and Italy: 20 percent. Most of Scandinavia: 25 percent.

You know I could not help but consider that God, Himself, only asks 10%! But then, Obama isn’t God, just an uberhuman, right?

There is no doubt that a large percentage of Americans have NO IDEA what they got themselves into with ObamaCare. Many will only get it as they stand in line for several hours just to buy toilet paper.

Yes, America is now a socialist state very much like the old Soviet Russia was and the modern European states are today.

Pity.

When Will The Texas Offense Take the Field?

March 23, 2010

”The best defense is a good offense.” Vince Lombardi

I’m using a football analogy today, since football is a religion in Texas. So, this is a “come to Jesus” altar call in football parlance.

Two teams are playing in a winner-take-all game. It’s Texas versus Washington for all the marbles. The game is now in sudden-death overtime, and the clock is winding down, with no time outs available for either team.

Washington’s offense has been pushing Texas up and down the field throughout the whole game. But the Texans have mounted a mighty defensive stand here in the final stanza.

It’s time for the Texas offense to take the field.

There are a lot of actions that Head Coach/Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Legislature can do RIGHT NOW to “take the field” and start pushing back against the Washington team and win this game…once and for all.

Think about this scenario for just a moment. In this media-driven, 24/7 worldwide ocean of information and content, consider what would happen if Coach Perry called a news conference and read the following statement:

“Over the past few decades, The United States Federal Government in Washington DC has enacted law after law that taxes the citizens more, while regulating away more and more individual liberty. The passage of the Health Care legislation in Congress was the final act of tyranny to be forced upon the citizens of the state of Texas. I’m announcing that as of this date, we in the State of Texas will begin serious and solemn consideration of the sovereign act of secession from the United States of America. Within a few days, we Texans will come together in a Constitutional Convention to write a new constitution for a New Texas.

Enough is enough. To quote Sam Houston, Texas will again lift its head and stand among the nations.”

That’s all Perry needs to say. It would only take him 40 seconds if he was a slow reader.

Such a proclamation would galvanize the world media. Little else would be covered for days, perhaps weeks on all the major new outlets worldwide.

Then the Coach and the team would have to put up or shut up.

Here are ten “plays” for the Texas offense that could be run even before a Constitutional Convention was organized and gaveled to order.

1. Call an emergency session of the State Legislature to meet within 30 days with the following agenda:
2. Enact legislation that required each Texan who pays state taxes of any kind to pay the tax in gold or silver coin, or Egold.
3. Enact legislation to provide for the private minting of gold and silver coins as Texas legal tender.
4. Enact legislation that formally nullifies all Federal laws in Texas.
5. Enact legislation that strengthens the law enforcement powers of county Sheriffs in Texas, making the county Sheriff the top law enforcement officer in each county. As part of the Sheriff legislation, enact a statute that requires any Federal employee or sworn officer to obtain written authority from a county Sheriff to enforce any US Federal law upon a Texas citizen, with criminal penalties for any non-Texas officer violating the law.
6. Enact legislation that rejects the jurisdiction of any US Federal Court in matters of Texas sovereignty and nationhood.
7. Enact legislation that reorganizes the Texas Citizen Militia, comprised of all able-bodied men and women between the ages of 18 and 50. This bill would provide for immediate training and provisioning of the militia.
8. Authorize the Constitutional Convention and set the date within 90 days.
9. Draft a Texas Declaration of Independence and post it on the state’s website so that people around the world could read it before it’s delivered to Washington.
10. Draft a Texas Ordinance of Secession and post it on the state’s website so that people around the world could read it before it’s delivered to Washington.

How’s that for a sudden-death offensive series?

And what could the Washington team do in response? Breathe out threats? All that Texas is doing is “laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness” (from Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence 1776).

Football fans and lovers of Texas, one of these two teams is going to win. There will be no tie. Either Texas leaves The United States, or The United States turns Texas into a perpetual serfdom. There is no third option.

Who will win this game? Secession is the Hope for Mankind.

Armed Robbery or Government: Which is Better?

March 8, 2010

Legendary comedian Jack Benny, known to be a skinflint, was met one night by an armed thug.

“Your money or your life,” said the thug.

Benny was silent. The thug said, “Well, what’s it going to be?”

I’m thinking…I’m thinking!” was Benny’s reply.

Taxation is theft, ladies and gentlemen. If there is the slightest hint of compulsion in taxation, it’s theft. Your money is taken from you under the threat of either loss of freedom of loss of life.

Taxation in the USA is a protection racket. If you pay your taxes willingly and meekly, the government is likely to leave you alone for the remainder of that year. But refuse to be taxed and reject government protection and you will meet with a fate worse than meeting with an armed robber.

Paying taxes is akin to meeting an armed robber…but government is at your door, not in some dark alley. They work in similar ways, but I’m here to tell you that, given the choice between an armed robber and government, always choose the armed robber.

To offer proof, let’s look at some ways that an armed robbery is superior to government taxation.

An armed robbery might occur while you are in your car, your home, a city street or country lane. He might brandish some weapon and relieve you of your wallet, purse or other valuables. He might steal your car. He might even shoot you if you resist, even unto your death. But at least your encounter with an armed robber is customarily between individuals of a small number. Then, he usually goes on his way to seek out his next victim, or maybe to spend the spoils of his robbery.

The government does not act in such a manner. Government robs you in a far more despicable and cruel way. If you are an employee, government reaches into the coffers of your employer and collects the money it wants even before you receive it (can you imagine an armed robber showing up at the payroll office of your employer and demanding a portion of your wages?). If you are self employed, government wants their “cut” monthly. If you own property, you’ll either pay your tax or government will confiscate your property and sell it for the tax they think they are due.

The robber understands the crime he commits, its danger and the possible consequences of his own act. He doesn’t assert a position that he has some prior claim to your money, or that he is going to use your money to benefit you. He is simply an armed robber and nothing more. He hasn’t offered a protection plan in exchange for the money he stole from you against your will. Once the robber takes your money, he usually leaves you alone. He does not follow you wherever you go, proclaiming that he is your master because of the protection he provides to you with the money he stole from you. He does not require your obeisance, homage or loyalty into the future…only your money today. He does not consider you to be his slave or servant. He does not force you to do this thing, or prohibit you from doing that. The robber does not usually come back to you over and over for more money. And if you dispute his authority, the robber does not label you a traitor and his enemy. He does not have other of his armed minions arrest you, charge you with felonies, throw you into his jails or kill you if you resist. In addition to robbing you, the robber does not try to convince you of his good intentions, or try to make you into his slave. A robber is too honorable to perpetrate these heinous acts on individuals.

No, the armed robber cannot be compared in any way to the thieves and murderers known as the “government.”

Government robbers and murderers, unlike the armed robber, do not accept responsibility for their acts as individuals. They hide within the anonymity of the government. They choose certain of their minions, like those of the Internal Robbery Service (IRS) to commit the robberies on the government’s behalf. They bestow law enforcement authority and weapons on these toadies and give them their orders.

In essence and in practice they send forth “swarms of officers to harass the people and eat out their substance” (from the Declaration of Independence). They assert that the government needs the people’s money for its endeavors. If an individual resists, telling the government that he never contracted with the government for its protection or its endeavors, they will inform the individual that he will pay and be protected whether he likes it or not. If he further refuses to comply with their demands, the toadie thugs will at least seize enough of the citizen’s property to sell in settlement of the government’s demands. And that’s just this year’s take.

If the citizen still resists and defends his property, and in that effort, kills any minons, the citizen will either be captured or killed himself. If captured, he will be tried and imprisoned or put to death. Should the citizen enlist the efforts of others of like mind to resist the demands of the government, they will all be labeled “tax cheats, kooks, rebels, traitors,” or any other pejorative moniker that government can use to besmirch their names. But government would also enlist greater forces to put down this armed rebellion, even if hundreds of thousands of rebels took up arms against the government. But happily, one day the tax rebellion could reach a critical mass that was greater than the government’s ability to crush.

And all of this action and consequence flows from one person just wanting to be left alone and resisting aggression from others. The citizen commits no force or fraud upon others…he only seeks to live his life as he sees fit.

All government has the potential for tyranny. The way to minimize tyranny is to create governments with very limited powers and strictly police their actions.

That is one of the reasons I’ve written in past articles about creating a new nation in the model of a corporation, and using only sales tax as the sole method of taxation. The corporate model of government creates a legal written contract between the citizens for the operation of their country. And, as sales tax is the least oppressive and most voluntary form of taxation, it is the best solution to raise revenue to pay for the new nation’s functions.

Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?

Texas as a Safe Haven Nation, Magnet For Wealth Preservation

February 20, 2010

(Editor’s Note: I ran this article back in October 2009, but have updated it with new information.)

The famous (and very accurate) trend watcher Gerald Celente has written about the concept of Safe Haven Nations (SHNs). A SHN is simply a sovereign nation that has implemented laws that protect the wealth and privacy of individuals, and is a place to which people could relocate.

Wealthy people worldwide are constant prey for rapacious predator governments. The wealthy are easy targets, since most everyone wants to be a wealthy individual, but many who are not wealthy resent them. And, with predictable regularity, governments create class warfare and class envy, so the lower class supports the government’s efforts to confiscate the assets of the wealthy class.

Wealthy people worldwide are also on the lookout for venues where they can store their wealth securely. Used to be that Switzerland was the “gold standard” of wealth preservation and privacy for the world. But recently, the US and EU governments went after the Swiss, and Swiss bank UBS agreed to disclose the identities of nearly 5,000 American citizens who have secure bank accounts in Switzerland. My understanding is that this disclosure violates Swiss banking law, but they are doing it anyway.

Wealthy people are often willing to relocate to another nation when they are forced to save their own lives. Sometimes, the wealthy have to leave mansions, bank accounts and other assets behind in a predator nation just to save their own skin. Recall Captain Georg von Trapp and the movie “The Sound of Music.” They did not actually walk out of Austria to escape the Nazis, but fled to Italy by train. But ask others from Vietnam, Iraq, Germany, South Africa and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) about leaving with nothing but the clothes you are wearing.

In the event of a complete collapse of the dollar and the financial tsunami that will wash over the world, immigrating to a new country may be quite difficult, perhaps even impossible. Predator nations will do everything that they can do to prevent capital flight and may even prohibit emigration. Borders may seal tight and travel may be severely restricted.

Texas secession and the formation of a New Texas provides an historic opportunity for Texas to become the newest and most secure Safe Haven Nation. The people who will craft the new constitution for a New Texas should look to the banking and privacy laws of the nation of Lichtenstein for a template.

Nations like Panama, which has outstanding Safe Haven laws, are attracting wealth from all over the world. Others are:

Singapore
Hong Kong
Anguilla
The Bahamas
Bermuda
St.Kitts/Nevis
Cayman Islands
Isle of Mann

The problem with the list above is expatriation. These are islands and entities of small geographic size. Many have very restrictive immigration laws. So, they are limited on how many people they could allow to immigrate to their shores. Texas, however, is immense. And with an immigration policy based on the free market, a New Texas could become a worldwide magnet for wealth…and wealthy individuals.

Immigration law will have to be enacted that offers a procedure for an expatriate to either gain dual citizenship or individual citizenship through a fee arrangement. Many other nations will allow dual citizenship when an applicant deposits money in a bank in that nation. Some nations require deposits in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The most important single act that the government of the New Texas can do is to create a monetary system of only precious metals-backed currency. Then, they must couple that hard-money decision with competition in currency, which allows for the private minting of gold and silver coins. Texas Congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill in Congress (HR 4248) that would create just such a system…although it has no chance in hell of passage.

But in a world where all the other nations print bogus currency, one nation with sound money would be an asset magnet for the world. Think about it. If inflation worldwide steals your buying power, but New Texas money at least protected the value of your cash, how could you go wrong by holding New Texas gold or silver money?

There is a glimmer of hope, though. The nation of China, the leading economy on the planet, recently began encouraging its citizens to invest in gold and silver. China’s government may be using this initiative to create a precious-metals-backed currency entirely under the radar. They might be planning to have the Yuan take over as the new reserve currency for the world. To view a 6 minute video about this story, go to: Secession, China and Gold Money.

If a New Texas has no income tax, no property tax and no inheritance tax, that will be a good start. But it will need to go further to attract wealth from all over the globe as a Safe Haven Nation. Banking law will need to protect the identity of anyone depositing assets in Texas. Texas will also have to refuse to enter into tax treaties with other nations, and then withstand the enormous pressure they bring to bear to comply.

Tax fraud is misleading a taxing entity and should be illegal. Tax evasion is the failure to declare assets, and is open to interpretation these days. Tax avoidance uses lawful means to minimize the amount of tax paid to any taxing entity. Many nations wish to blur the lines between tax evasion and tax avoidance. Texas should promote tax avoidance while offering absolute secrecy for individuals and corporations.

Texas should also create a constitutional law that provides for corporations to have bearer shares and no-par-value shares, as well as to operate with one director, who may also be the secretary, and who may reside outside of Texas. While annual meetings may be held anywhere, a registered office and agent must be in Texas, but no information concerning shareholders or directors needs to be disclosed. The minute book, resolutions, seal and shareholder register must be kept at the registered office. Most SHNs have these laws already.

If you are seeking a Safe Haven Nation, you might consider moving your wealth and your family to Texas now. Texas as a US state is the leading economic engine of the USA. Very pro-business, very independent. Lots of wealth already there. If any state of the Union is going to successfully secede, my money’s on Texas.

If you see the writing on the wall in your country (or state), and know that you must expatriate to a new country, the time is NOW to begin preparations. Your plans must be in place and executed before a meltdown in your country or state occurs. After the meltdown, it might be too late. You may become an inmate of Prison Planet.

Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?

Debra Medina For Governor of Texas!

January 24, 2010

Forget all the nice things I’ve ever said about Rick Perry. I’ve been far too nice…far too hopeful…far too gracious in my words about The Guv.

Rick Perry is a member in good standing of the political criminal class. He wishes to continue, and fellow criminal Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson wants his job. But Debra Medina is also running for Governor, and she actually wants to uphold and defend the Texas and US Constitutions.

The first Gubernatorial Candidate debate was held on Thursday, January 14th in Dallas. Participants were Governor Rick Perry, seeking another term; Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson; and Debra Medina, registered nurse and mother.

I watched this debate the day after on the Internet. I recommend strongly that you watch every second of this debate by CLICKING HERE.

John Weekley, political analyst for the CBS affiliate in Dallas, said that while there were no overt losers, Medina probably won the debate. In my opinion, Debra Medina should have been carried out of the debate hall on the shoulders of her supporters for a complete rout of the other two candidates.

Let’s summarize the words of each candidate:

Rick Perry: The very first question posed by the moderator was about secession and nullification, and she asked specifically if Perry supported nullification. Perry waffled and squirmed and never did really answer a simple “yes or no” question. But he did say that he would not nullify laws that had to do with Federal dollars, like highway funds, that should come to Texas.

Perry also stated that his favorite Federal program was the military, quickly giving a verbal hand job to all the military personnel that “keep us free.”

When asked by the moderator to name just one Federal program that needed to be cut, Perry could not, or would not, name one. He said he was happy with them all.

Perry disparaged Hutchinson by pointing to her senatorial voting record, stating that she was a Washington insider that voted nine times to raise the Federal Debt ceiling. He also pointed out that she had committed to vote against any Federal bailouts, and then reversed and voted for all of them on a party-line vote.

The Governor defended his record as Chief Executive, and stated that 1,000 people a day were moving to Texas for its pro-business climate.

Kay Bailey Hutchinson: The Senator painted on a very insincere smile and began ripping Perry as soon as she got her turn to speak. She told of the woes of high Texas taxes, lost jobs, immigration/border issues and Perry Administration ethical challenges. When asked about her position on abortion, she stated that she was anti-abortion, but she did not believe that states had any rights to adjudicate this issue.

Hutchinson could not think of even one Federal program she believed should be axed. But, like Perry, her favorite Fed program is the military. She did not really defend her senatorial record, but simply stated that she was a Conservative who would be more conservative than Perry if she were Governor.

Debra Medina: She supported nullification of unconstitutional Federal law. She said the states should individually decide abortion issues. She took a position strongly in favor of individual property rights, especially as it relates to the proposed Texas corridor. She advocated the sales tax as the only method of taxation in Texas, and is in favor of eliminating all property taxes. She stands for an end to the War on Drugs and the position that each state should decide this issue for itself.

In summary, Debra Medina won this debate by simply taking pro-liberty positions and small government solutions to problems. Hutchinson and Perry spent their night sniping at each other over petty issues, and both refused to take solid, verifiable positions on anything.

Both Perry and Hutchinson are career politicians who have prospered in the belly of the Beast. Each one wants to continue with “business as usual” in the next term as Governor. Only Debra Medina stands as a candidate who recognizes the fundamental problems built into the system and offers solutions to fix the problems.

I recommend Debra Medina for the next Governor of the State of Texas. Only Medina has the freedom-based philosophical underpinnings to lead a state that will eventually be faced with the secession issue.

Secession and the AIDS Doctrine of Government

January 15, 2010

I was reading about the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) today, and began to think about government programs as diseases. I have now noodled out a new doctrine to explain government. It’s so obvious that I can’t imagine why I didn’t think of it before!

The AIDS Doctrine:

Government functions just like a virulent strain of AIDS.

In formulating this doctrine to explain the existence and workings of government, I went to the Wikipedia page for AIDS and found the following statements. Each statement about AIDS is shown in bold print, followed by its similarity to government AIDS, or “GOVAIDS”:

Acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a viral disease of the immune system. Humans are normally born with a healthy immune system. In like manner, people are born free with God-given unalienable rights, and children have to learn the meaning of freedom. Based upon their understanding of freedom, they can develop an immune system against tyranny. But over time, the government, the general zeitgeist and the government schools directly attack that tyranny immune system. A few stout souls fight GOVAIDS throughout their entire lifetimes. Many people’s immune systems are overwhelmed by GOVAIDS, and they cease fighting against it. Many never fight at all. Many say “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Opportunistic infections are common in people with AIDS. These infections affect nearly every organ system. In GOVAIDS, politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, think tanks and suppliers are the “opportunistic infections” spoken of here. There is no human act or human thought where an opportunity cannot be exploited. Many make a nice living managing GOVAIDS (politicians and bureaucrats), promoting the spread of GOVAIDS (lobbyists), studying GOVAIDS (think tanks), and supplying the government with everything it needs or wants.

AIDS is never stopped once it starts. This explains how an agency like the Transportation Safety Administration can come into being and can never be closed. Other agencies like the National Endowment of the Arts, the Departments of Energy and Education do not need to exist but live on, no matter which political party dominates Congress.

Out of a Heritage Foundation report entitled “in Rolling Back Government: A Budget Plan to Rebuild America,” I’ve listed below only twelve (out of over 250) Federal agencies that still exist, far beyond the charters that established them. Each one is an unconstitutional creation spending money criminally:

Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture and Arts
Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin
Office of Nuclear Waste Negotiator
Pennsylvania Avenue Development Corporation
State Justice Institute
Susquehanna River Basin Commission
Appalachian Regional Commission
Arms Control and Disarmament Agency
Corporation for National and Community Service
Institute of Peace
Legal Services Corporation
Marine Mammal Commission

AIDS is now a pandemic. GOVAIDS is also a pandemic, since government is growing exponentially. GOVAIDS infects every human act, 24/7, even your thought life. Don’t believe it? Consider hate crimes legislation that judges your state of mind, not just your acts.

Treatments for AIDS can slow the course of the disease. State governments could theoretically use the vaccine of nullification to stop GOVAIDS. But most states believe that GOVAIDS is more powerful than their nullification vaccine, so they don’t use it. Besides, even if they did want to use the nullification vaccine, the states have no real active ingredient (a militia) in their vaccine to use. So, the states simply write prescriptions for placebo vaccines (Tenth Amendment Resolutions) and just show them to the government leaders as a threat. GOVAIDS leadership ignores prescriptions waved at them. GOVAIDS leaders use force to rule, and only recognize force to thwart their rulership. If you doubt this assertion, read about the Nullification Crisis of 1832.

Typical modern medications only treat the symptoms of any disease, not the cause. So it is when Congress argues about legislation or the Supreme Court hands down an opinion. So it is when media talking heads like Glenn Beck bleat unendingly about Washington’s shenanigans without offering solutions to the problems.

AIDS eventually kills the host. Unchecked, GOVAIDS will tax to the max, and regulate everything. Complete totalitarianism is the logical conclusion of unchecked government. Curiously, GOVAIDS will consume everything, wreck the economy that supports it, and eventually die of its own excesses. And presently, the government of the United States recognizes no constraint on its own power…certainly not an old, anachronistic Constitution with no authority to restrain GOVAIDS.

There is no cure for AIDS. True…but there is a cure for GOVAIDS! All Americans have the cure for GOVAIDS in their hands today. Some are unaware that they posses it, others don’t believe it will work, and still others are frightened that the virus might get mad and fight back.

Humankind can still wrest health away from disease and re-establish liberty. Yes, my friends, there is only ONE CURE for GOVAIDS.

SECESSION.

A “Liberty Quarantine” is the medicine of choice. So long as a group of people stay within the area of infection, they are subject to that infection. But when that group of people quarantine themselves voluntarily, GOVAIDS ceases overnight.

A group of the most intelligent, genius-level, liberty-loving individuals the world has ever known could come together and craft a Declaration of Independence. They could meet for months and hammer out a Constitution or some other compact or contract to bind themselves to each other, and define the powers and restrictions of their new form of government. But until the new compact is ENFORCED, it is only ink marks on a page. And all compacts and contracts are inevitably enforced through violence or the threat of violence. Behind every peaceful agreement and peaceable negotiation is the ultimate penalty for violation of the peace, which is violence. To disagree with this statement is tantamount to asserting that the sun is not shining on a cloudy day.

And the next government you create will have the very same tendencies to corruption. The form of government you choose will be the determining factor to the rapidity with which it will metastasize into a cancer on the body politic.

So, ladies and gentlemen, do not be resigned to tyranny and the disease of GOVAIDS. Embrace the revitalization of your state’s Militia, and wholly work toward your state’s secession and your own personal liberty.

Secession is the hope for mankind. Who will be first?

Secession and ObamaCare

January 14, 2010

IRS To Enforce ObamaCare Taxes

(Editor’s Note: Is this outrage the final Federal power and money grab that will convince a state to secede? If not, what is it going to take? Remember…a state that secedes ends this outrage for its citizens.)

Socialized Health Care Can STILL Be Stopped – Tell Congress to VOTE NO on ObamaCare

ALERT: Congress is forcing Americans have health insurance — and prove it on their tax returns or face a fine. The Internal Revenue Service will enforce this new health insurance mandate.

Nationalized Healthcare Enforced By The IRS Is The Public Option

The health care reform bill deal would require the IRS to dole out taxpayer dollars — subsidies — to low-income Americans to help them pay for health insurance, administer tax credits to small businesses to help them offer health insurance to workers and collect billions of dollars in new taxes on employers, insurance companies and medical device companies.

The American Cancer Society and American Heart Association, say the Senate ObamaCare bill penalizes people for not losing weight, reducing their blood pressure or going to the gym.

The ObamaCare compromise also seeks to force insurance companies to cut or eliminate profits and effectively becoming private federal agencies.

These and other details that are part of the compromise amount to nothing more than a backdoor deal for Nationalized Healthcare Enforced By The IRS and is nothing more than a Public Option socialized government run healthcare.

ObamaCare funding is more than $1 Trillion short and cannot be paid for without new taxes.

Obama and Democrats in Congress are ignoring plan details and adding more than $3000/yr of debt to every American.

Obama has lied again by pushing massive tax increases on every American earning less than $250,000/yr. Every Person will be hurt with increased costs of an out of control Government Run Health Care bureaucracy.

BUT — did you know that, thanks to a parliamentary maneuver by Senate Republicans just before the recess… ObamaCare could be dead on arrival in the U.S. House of Representatives?

IT’S TRUE — but WE have to make sure that it DOES die!

TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE — BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”

After Sen. Harry Reid was able to bribe and cajole 60 Democrat and Independent Senators to vote for “cloture” and pass the Senate version of ObamaCare, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) engineered an “objection to the appointment of the conferees”. What that means is this: The U.S. Constitution, in Article I, Section 7.2, specifies that every bill has to pass both houses of Congress before it can be signed into law. However, it has to be the exact same bill that passes. That usually means that, when a bill is amended in one house (like the Senate amended the House bill, in order to get the 60 votes needed to pass it), a “conference committee” is appointed with members of both houses to “iron out” the differences, and then each house votes on the final compromise bill with no amendments allowed.

That’s what usually happens… BUT NOT THIS TIME!

THIS TIME, Republican Leader McConnell (at the behest of Sen. DeMint) actually objected to the appointment of the conferees — something that’s almost never done. That means that the Senate ObamaCare bill must be amended on the House floor to gain the votes they need to pass it on the House floor. And because of Sen. DeMint’s objection to the appointment of the conferees, there will be no conference, or conference report. Democrats can resort to a fallback: they can propose a motion to appoint conferees, but that motion is subject to filibuster. It would likely require three separate cloture votes just to pass the motion to appoint conferees! So — the Senate bill goes back to the House, which will have to debate it all over again… including amending it.

If the House amends the Senate bill, they then have to send the amended bill back to the Senate — where all the 60 vote margin cloture votes still apply — cloture on the motion to proceed, cloture to end the filibuster, and cloture on any amendment.

And you can bet that the House WILL amend the Senate bill. There are PLENTY of disagreements among Democrats in the House over Harry Reid’s compromise bill, in areas like abortion, the public option, illegal immigrant coverage, taxation of union health care plans, and the degree of subsidy available for purchase of health care. Any ONE of these can SINK Obamacare!

On abortion, the Senate bill contains massive abortion funding by virtue of the Nelson-Reid abortion language in the bill that allows states to force taxpayers to fund abortions with government funds. It also contains the Mikulski amendment, which would allow the Obama administration to define abortion as “preventative care” and force insurance companies to use taxpayers’ premiums to pay for them. The House initially approved its bill on a three-vote margin only because it contained the Stupak amendment to ban abortion funding. Now, with the Senate’s Nelson-Reid language and Mikulski amendment in place, a group of 10-12 pro-life Democrats led by Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan may very well REVOLT on supporting the bill, unless the Stupak amendment is added to the Senate version of the legislation. And if the Stupak amendment is added, that would probably prompt some pro-abortion Democrats to vote against the bill. RESULT: OBAMACARE DIES.

On the issue of having a “public option” completely run by the government, there are a BUNCH of hard-core leftist Democrats in the House who have pledged to vote AGAINST any healthcare bill that doesn’t include that public option — which the Senate bill doesn’t. The leftists themselves count SIXTEEN Members — and the House bill only won by a margin of TWO VOTES last time. In order to pass the bill, it will have to be amended to include a public option — but several Democrat Senators said they will vote AGAINST any bill that includes a public option — and the Senate bill only won by ONE VOTE last time. RESULT: OBAMACARE DIES.

Leftist Democrats are also starting to balk at the idea that, in the Senate bill, millions of Americans will be forced into private insurance company plans, which will be subsidized by taxpayers. They see that alternative will do almost nothing to “reform health care” but will be a windfall for insurance companies — and they HATE that.

Another real sticking point in this bill that can help us to KILL IT is a big one: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, and whether illegals should be covered. The final Senate bill prohibits any unauthorized immigrants from purchasing private health-care plans on the insurance exchange, whereas the House bill would allow them to buy private insurance but prohibits them from receiving any government subsidies to do so. When the White House tried to pressure the House to change its immigration provisions to resemble the Senate bill, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus revolted and threatened to vote against the legislation. While they managed to secure a victory at the time, the Senate put the prohibition back in — which can KILL it in the House. If the House amends it and puts it back in, it will KILL it in the Senate. RESULT: OBAMACARE DIES.

GET IT? We can WIN this fight! With Senate Republicans now forcing Democrats to “ping-pong” the Obamacare bill back and forth between the two Houses, we can capitalize on the divisions within the Democrat Party itself! If we can STOP Reid and Pelosi from getting enough votes in either House — that means THE BILL WOULD DIE!

We CAN still win, by keeping the Democrats from getting the votes they need to pass Obamacare… but we can’t do it without YOUR help!

TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE — BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”

TAKE ACTION: We don’t have much time before the liberal Democrat leaders in the House and Senate begin their backroom deal-making to work all of their deals and compromises, in hopes of getting enough votes to pass Obamacare. We have to start NOW in letting ALL of these people who are supposed to be representing US in Washington, that we are NOT going to put up with this — and that they MUST LISTEN TO US and KILL THE BILL!

DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED — remember that the majority of the American people are WITH US. With every passing day, more and more citizens — left AND right — are expressing their opposition and outrage over this monstrous bill. And remember, Obama, Pelosi and Reid wanted to pass Obamacare months ago. Thanks to YOUR efforts, we’ve been able to STOP that from happening — WE CAN’T GIVE UP NOW!

We CANNOT let the radical liberals in Congress — and the White House — force this plan for socialized health care on the American people! That’s why we’ve set up our website to enable you to send a strong message to every single member of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, OPPOSING this outrageous plan.

For about what it would cost you in time and telephone charges, you can send Blast Faxes to Democrats, Republicans, Independents — EVERYONE in BOTH houses of Congress, DEMANDING that they REJECT this socialized health care plan NOW!

TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE — BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”

This fight CAN BE WON! Please, take action right away to STOP this bill in the U.S. Congress!
