Only in Amerika


1) Only in Amerika could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $40,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.
2) Only in Amerika could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce who are black (although 12% of the U.S. population is black).
3) Only in Amerika could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code — head of the Treasury Department Timothy Geithner and chair of the House Ways and Means Committee Charles Rangel — BOTH turn out to be tax dodgers who are in favor of higher taxes.
4) Only in Amerika could we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media be more concerned that Muslims might receive discrimination in the backlash.
5) Only in Amerika would we make people who want to legally become U.S. citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while millions of illegal migrants pour across our southern border, and if you object to the latter you’re called “racist”. To top it off, the federal government then sues the state of Arizona for trying to enforce the federal government’s own rules on illegal immigration!
6) Only in Amerika could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as hateful “extremists.”
7) Only in Amerika could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote — and if you disagree with the latter, you’re called “racist”.
8) Only in Amerika could citizens be required to present their birth certificate to apply for a passport, but not Barack Hussein Obama Jr. to certify his eligibility for the presidency of the United States — and if you inquire about that oddity, you’re called “racist” and other names (“birthers”), mocked at, and dismissed.
9) Only in Amerika could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER
MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have enough money.
10) Only in Amerika could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all, some of whom even get money “back”.

  1. This is what happens when there is no meaningful opposition in the political system. The style is different, but the substance is the same. There are more stupid people than smart people, so guess who always gets elected: Stupid. It takes effort to be educated and to study issues, many people think they are educated by watching FoxNews or CNN. Democracy insures that the most vile, evil, and incompetent person will become our “leader.”
    It’s time to start over. If you want to have government like this, then people should be selected who are not running, people who have some business skills. Once these people are selected, then they should be recommended for the job and asked to serve. But the type of system we have now insures our slavery.

     
  2. “But the type of system we have now insures our slavery.” – Al T
    I have to agree with that Al. We will all be at best only marginally freer under a Romney administration. Good, qualified people don’t run for office. Thus we get the dreggs.
    We’ve had this system for a very long time. It took nearly a century (Federal Reserve Act, 1913) to degrade to this level. The bankers owning the country along with the slow slide to the left and the wellfare society started long ago. Living today we’ve been blessed with front row seats for the end of the Ponzi scheme. If that issue weren’t headline news daily there’d be a lot of people happy as clams with the state of the country. However, tell fools that they wont be able to afford retirement…. well that gets their attention.

     
  3. The only slim hope would be for all business to shut down to stop the money flow to the freeloaders and put the government on notice that no tax income = no money to pay there useless asses now who would be in charge. Then a constitutional amendment, no freeloaders allowed to vote money out of the working folks pockets. A person should have to be a productive member of society and earn the right to vote.
