“Fair Share” Tax Policy

Bernie Sanders: “We tell the billionaire class, they cannot have it all!  For a start, they’re going to start paying their fair share of taxes.”

John Stossel: “Yeah!  Rich people aught to pay their fair share.  Warren Buffett says he pays a lower percentage tax than his secretary.  That’s disgusting!  Right, Steve Moore?

Steve Moore: “That’s one of these prevalent myths that’s been around for about ten years now.  Warren Buffett keeps saying he pays less than his secretary but when you…”

John Stossel: “Well, it is a higher percentage? It’s factually true.”

Steve Moore: “Well, no, it isn’t really.  Because what does Warren Buffett do?  He owns companies.  He invests in these companies and those companies pay a whole heck of a lot of taxes.  If you take in account all of those taxes, Warren Buffett’s tax rate is much higher.”

John Stossel: “According to Forbes, his secretary makes between $200-500 thousand dollars a year. So, they’re both in the top bracket.”

Steve Moore: “Yeah, she’s pretty rich too.  Most of his money comes from capital gains and dividend income and that’s taxed both at the corporate level and at the individual level as well.  So, taking that into account he is not paying a lower tax rate than his secretary.”

Everything progressives, Occupy Wall Street protesters, and Bernie Sanders supporters believe is most likely completely untrue when it comes to the “evil 1%.”  

The top 1% paid 37.8% of all federal income taxes.  The top 10% paid 69.8% of all federal income taxes, and that’s not including the taxes on capital gains and dividends.

Bernie is lying to you about the rich.  Don’t be a sucker.


The Truth About Online Gun Sales

The biggest mistake made by people who oppose anti-gun politicians, like President Obama, is thinking that they are stupid.

You don’t get to these positions by being stupid.  President Obama is consistently praised for his speaking ability.  He knows exactly what he’s saying and not saying.  Instead of being more precise with his language and say ‘a violent felon can buy a gun he saw online in a face-to-face transaction with a private seller without a background check’, he deceptively leaves those key words out.  Now, millions of people think a criminal can go online, Google ‘guns for sale’, find the gun they want, put in their credit card information, and two days later a box of guns just shows up at their front door - all without a background check.

This never happens.  There is no place online where you can just buy a gun and it shows up on your doorstep without a background check.  President Obama knows this.  But he also knows when he says things like this it shocks the conscience of millions of people who don’t know any better.  And it makes them think that a violent felon can buy guns the very same way I buy coca butter on Amazon Prime.

Communist Debate Tactics

@social-cap1tal and the rest of her subversive retarded cringe crew have such debatable tactics:
1. Share post and make an easily disprovable argument
2. When argument disproven, shift to ad hominem attacks
3. When get triggered, respond with “tag yourself.”

I don’t even have to debate you guys. In a few generations, the Israeli Left will be forced to either move to the right or it will die out. Targeting demographics that care more about partying than starting families isn’t a good formula for success.

I can’t wait for the day when real Jews- faithful, pious Jews and secular nationalists come together and free Israel from the Arab cancer and the left wingers who defend it.

I agree with lobbyists for federal school aid that education is one of the great problems of our day. I am afraid, however, that their views and mine regarding the nature of the problem are many miles apart. They tend to see the problem in quantitative terms – not enough school, not enough teachers, not enough equipment. I think it has to do with quality: How good are the schools we have? Their solution is to spend more money. Mine is to raise standards. Their recourse is to the federal government. Mine is to the local public school board, the private school, the individual citizen – as far away from the federal government as one can possibly go. And I suspect that if we knew which of these two views on education will eventually prevail, we would know also whether Western civilization is due to survive, or will pass away.

Things I learned being a New Hampshire exit poll interviewer

On Tuesday I gave out exit poll surveys for the New Hampshire primaries. Here are a few things I learned by checking out the surveys in small town NH.

1. Its not just millennials voting for Bernie Sanders. The town I was in had a much older average population and they overwhelmingly said they voted for Bernie.

2. A lot of trump supporters are women. I don’t understand this at all, but many of the people that said they voted for Trump were women between the ages of 35-60. There were not many republican voters in this town but these are the people that said they voted for him.

3. The low income population is voting republican, not democrat. 

4. If you’re wearing a suit and trying to give out surveys, people from NH will avoid you. My supervisor got mad when I told him he was over dressed for giving out surveys, but he only got 7 people to agree in the hour he was there, and I averaged around 50/hr.

5. People are aggravated with politics and the voter turnout is huge. You’ve heard this before, but the people at the town hall were blown away, and first thing in the morning the line was out the door with people wanting to cast their vote.

6. Republicans got really aggravated by the “Do you have guns in your home” question. Many asked me why that question was on the survey. Both republicans and democrats in New Hampshire own guns. 

It was an exciting day. I enjoyed talking to the people on primary day. I tried not to show bias towards how people voted, which was really difficult.

Humility: You’re Not the Best Person in the Room

Now, I was never a progressive but as a theater major in college, I was a lot more liberal than I am today.  I’m too embarrassed to go into the details but the one thing I do remember about those days was how passionately I believed in things I knew nothing about.  Nothing.  

Look, if you’re convinced you’re the smartest guy in the room and you’re automatically right all the time - and there are a lot of people like that out there - then you have simply stopped learning.  You know, on some level, you’ve even stopped thinking.

To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you. Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism. Feminism doesn’t shut down conversations or threaten women. It is not about ideology. It is not a weapon to wield against your political opponent. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all her God-given gifts. And always remember that a leader is not born, but made. Choose leadership.
