The Demise of the Rule of Law

With Obama’s ascension to the highest office in the land, America is quickly turning into two separate and unequal factions – the elites who decide the rules and the peons who are obliged to follow them.

Our political elites are currently crafting a drastic overhaul of a health care system 77% of Americans say they are happy with. They have decreed that all Americans will now be subject to the new health care rules. Those that don’t will be subject to $1,000 fines. Congress itself, however, will be exempt from the rules they are demanding the rest of us follow. Congressional members have their own health care plan, one that is not available to the rest of us peons.

Oh, and the unions, who have attained temporary elite status by virtue of their campaign contributions, will be granted special rules allowing them to be exempt from the proposed taxes on health care that will be paid by the peons in flyover country. (That’s you and me)

Our politicians and the politically connected environmental elite are demanding all Americans drive smaller cars, use different light bulbs and pretty much alter their way of life to conform to the elite’s stated, but misleading, attempt to ‘save the earth.’ At the same time, these elites fly around in the same private jets they demonize CEO’s for using. To say nothing of the fleets of SUVs currently in use by the very people who would deny them to the rest of us peons.

President Obama is lecturing Americans to tighten their economic belts while he continues spending our tax dollars at an unsustainable rate. Quadrupling the deficit, with no end in sight. Very clearly indicating that the rules imposed on us peons don’t extend to the elites.

The Federal Trade Commission has announced it is going to begin going after bloggers who make false claims about products and/or don’t fully disclose conflicts of interest. This crackdown does not extend to the elites, who continue to make false claims, like Obama’s patently false statement, “I’ll be honest, there are countries where a single-payer system works pretty well”. Apparently the media elite won’t be subject to this crackdown either, unless, of course, they dare to challenge a liberal premise. (Sarah Palin comes to mind)

The elites in Congress will also be exempt from these new FTC dictates, as they continue to shut down inquiries into false claims Nancy Pelosi made about the CIA. Who continue to shut down amendments to audit the Federal Reserve. A host of democrat politicians and liberal advocacy groups also get a free pass to make false and misleading claims about health care, cap and trade, global warming, etc. Once again, the elites exempt themselves from the rules they impose on the rest of us peons.

The Obama administration is now actively involved in doubling the number of IRS agents to better enforce tax regulation and enforcement on the peons who live in flyover country and the capitalists who dare to make a, gasp, profit. The elites entrusted to run the IRS, however, are exempt from these rules, garnering nothing more than phony expressions of ‘deep concern’ when they’re caught failing to pay their own taxes. Ditto for the numerous Democrat appointees who have failed to abide by the IRS rules the rest of us peons are forced to live by.

President Obama, as a Senator, actually sponsored legislation requiring 30 days notice and a valid reason given before Inspector Generals could be fired. The very rule he sponsored, however, doesn’t apply to Obama, as he gave IG Gerald Walpin one hour notice to quit or be fired when he started investigating a friend of Obama’s.

President Obama lectures the world that “suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away” while, on the same day, demonizing Fox News for daring to question what he says.

President Obama has ruled that America has no right to meddle in Iran’s affairs. Apparently this rule doesn’t apply to Israel, where Obama is actively meddling in Israel’s affairs in order to get them to halt settlements. Or to the coup in the Honduras, which Obama was quick to label ‘not-legal.’

We are now a nation with two sets of rules. One set for the elites, which is flexible and arbitrary, and another set of rules for the rest of us peons. The rule of law is now open to interpretation and discretionary enforcement, based on the transient whims of the reigning elite. Translation: There is no more rule of law. We should all be very scared.

A Tax Poem

At first it seems quite funny … until you realize the awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end and share this with your friends using the above email button!

Tax his land,  Tax his bed,

Tax the table at which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor, tax his mule,

Teach him taxes are the rule.

Tax his work, tax his pay,

He works for peanuts Anyway!

Tax his cow, tax his goat,

Tax his pants, tax his coat.

Tax his ties, tax his shirt,

Tax his work, tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco, tax his drink,

Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his cigars, tax his beers,

If he cries tax his tears.

Tax his car, tax his gas,

Find other ways to tax his ass.

Tax all he has, then let him know

That you won’t be done ’till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers, then tax him some more,

Tax him till he’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin, tax his grave,

Tax the sod in which he’s laid.

Put these words upon his tomb,

‘Taxes drove me to my doom…’

When he’s gone, do not relax,

Its time to apply the inheritance tax.

AND TO PUT THINGS INTO FURTHER PERSPECTIVE, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING PARTIAL LIST OF TAXES PAID BY MOST AMERICANS:

Accounts Receivable Tax, Building Permit Tax, CDL license Tax, Cigarette Tax, Corporate Income Tax, Dog License Tax, Excise Taxes, Federal Income Tax, Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA), Fishing License Tax, Food License Tax, Fuel Permit Tax, Gasoline Tax (42 cents per gallon), Gross Receipts Tax, Hunting License Tax, Inheritance Tax, Inventory Tax, IRS Interest Charges IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax), Liquor Tax, Luxury Taxes, Marriage License Tax, Medicare Tax, Real Estate Tax, Property Tax, Personal Property Tax, Real Estate Tax, Service Charge Tax, Social Security Tax, Road UsageTax, Sales Tax, Recreational Vehicle Tax, School Tax, State Income Tax, State Unemployment Tax (SUTA), Telephone Federal Excise Tax, Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax, Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Taxes, Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax, Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Charges Tax, Telephone State and Local Tax, Telephone Usage Charge Tax, Utility Taxes, Vehicle License Registration Tax, Vehicle Sales Tax, Watercraft Registration Tax, Well Permit Tax, Workers Compensation Tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago (see our article on the effects of the 16th Amendment), and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians’ ?

And I still have to ‘press 1’ for English!
