Understanding is the Booby Prize
The fact reality does not exist without our imagination should cause us to question what part of anything is real? In current politics, reality does not exist. On the political side of life, politics is nothing more than a series of slick moves conspired for government control. Elected leaders are duping the citizenry aided by naive voters, totally engrossed with political personalities, unable to decipher truth without media intervention. Media is completely dominated by one political party. It is getting significantly worse. In a recent survey it was found 92% of media identified themselves as Democrats. The figures are duplicated when analyzing college and university professorships. The very institutions we rely on for clarity are feeding us convenient versions of what is truth; all meant to further a socialistic society.
Few readers will fashion together a coherent list of examples although many will through instinct alone know I speak the truth. Some key examples will add clarity to what I have expressed. In 2015:
Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%,
Top income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%,
Top income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%,
Capital gains went from 15% to 39.6%,
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%,
A 3.5% Real Estate Tax was added.
Only congress can tax the citizenry; NONE of these taxes were voted on by congress as a tax. The citizenry today is manipulated by one particular political party with no compunction, for the sole purpose of total domination. A Socialistic agenda whether we like it or not. How were these few examples of political chicanery among others, sprung on the nation without so much as a “May I?”
Remember when Obama Care was voted on after Republicans in Congress had less than 24 hours to review the THOUSANDS of pages called Obama Care? Nancy Pelosi the Congressional leader proclaimed (direct quote) “ we must pass this bill so we can find out what is in it”. Slowly we are finding Obama Care is the greatest power grab and intentional redirection of the total economy of the United States towards a socialistic society. Obama Care has little to do with health care. As a matter of fact health care is only the ruse and totally useless as a national health care asset. Resistance from health care providers and subscribers are now capitulating towards joining for one reason and one reason only, “Penalties”.
It should serve the public well to know not a single Republican voted for the bill knowing this contrived bill did not pass the smell test. The bill with the above hidden taxes plus many others were passed only with Democrat votes, no Republicans. Today we have a bogus Health Care bill that will cause the middle class an enormous amount of revenue. These are only a few of a list of additional taxes. Did you read about the above enforced taxes in mainstream print media? Of course not. Did you hear about the above taxes on the most mainstream broadcasting media? Of course not, they are part of the problem. In today’s news reporting it has become fashionable to lend color, not truth and the hyping of a much taunted health care bill regardless of how useless it is by far the news story, not the slice of flesh taken of our middle class butt cheeks.
Just as freedom of expression must survive what people do not want to hear, understanding reality in today’s political world must be seen as a figment of our imagination. In choosing our next political leaders remember: It is better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie. This is what America sees in Trump.
