Our country is facing an insurmountable debt that cannot be resolved…… we need to halt spending NOW before it gets worse. This is NOT helped by healthcare spending, amnesty spending and temporary job spending. Vote the liberals out, and get conservative people to make conservative choices for our fiscal future!
Ok, it isn’t a tax… apparently, it is a 15-cent ‘fee’ which goes to the Secretary of Agriculture’s ‘Board’ of the Department of Agriculture to help improve the marketing for Christmas Trees……
a) Why is the President intervening in a Christian holiday, trying to promote it when he favors Muslims and minorities?
b) If everyone is screaming for lower taxes, or in Occupiers’ minds corporate taxes, why is he taxing something that everyone loves and that lower-class workers sell?
c) If our government is taxing our Christmas trees/Hanukkah Bushes/Ramadan Shrubs, where will they be going next?!?!
Send this information out to as many people as you can, and show how ridiculous our President’s policies are becoming!
My family has been in California for nearly a century – and we are preparing to move by next year. California has seen a great rise in this period, with its growth in the World Wars exploding as it became a gateway to and from the United States. It became an industrial giant, the world’s port, the center of international entertainment, an agricultural heaven…… now it is has the highest taxation in the United States under New York, the center of over-regulation of businesses, a haven for Illegal aliens and Democrat voting blocks, and the target of deficit-inducing legislation.
This article below, found by a friend of mine, further discusses California’s downfall – and how a second term under Obama (which shall hopefully not come) will lead to a downfall of greater proportions than that of California.
I went up to Salt Lake City’s Outdoor Retailer last week, and met with many major brands. As we discussed pricing and product quality with companies like Eureka, Katadyn Water Filtration, Coleman, Primus…. The list goes on and on. ALL OF THEM are manufacturing out of China, with only distributing centers and warehouses in the United States. None of them forge the metals, weave the textiles, create chemical innovations that would otherwise create jobs in America.
Taxation in the United States, and higher costs for worker pay have led to industries moving out of the country. We no longer produce raw materials, and our government is in the process of shutting down domestic success. Oil production has been restricted tremendously since the Gulf oil spill, and oil container ships have left the waters offshore for foreign entities. Our natural gas industry is being quieted by environmentalists and politicians, who instead push for greener energy through GE EcoMagination and car innovation (which is also pressured through government policy and regulation). Steel industry has gone down, with little creation and more recycling.
Less industries based in our country mean fewer scientists who will work with such companies to produce innovation. Scientists will move out of our own country into others with real-world applications and needs. Knowledge, jobs, and economic growth are hindered by all of the preceding information.
When we get Obama out of office and a Democrat-led Congress from leading us, we will hopefully find the sense to vote for economically knowledgeable people who will entice job creators back to the United States.
As government looms even larger over America, our middle class is being crushed with regulation and taxation. Many small-business owners do not have the money or time to devote towards appeasing the government, nor the resources to head off unions. We need less regulation now, as the times have led many to hopelessness and poverty.

As I said before, government needs to stay limited and allow private industry to produce capital. However, taxes on these profits and on all other ranges of things exist. This money goes to the government, which is responsible for sending it to the specific sectors requiring funds. There are currently over 300 million people in the United States; if 10% of the population were to not pay their taxes, and taxes were only $1 annually, the government would recieve $270 million, 1/4 of one billion. We currently have $13 TRILLION debt – I doubt that we would be able to tax our way out of this. If we get a new, more responsible government to move funds to economically stimulating industries that can increase profits.
Taxes themselves should be limited; there needs to be a fixed, reasonable rate at which we can be taxed. The rich do not need to be taxed more, because the extra money they make always goes back into either their business or into other places like food, employees, or other supplies. The poor should not be taxed less, due to their lacking money. We need to influence them to do better, yet let them take the initiative to get to a higher position. The government needs to use common sense (a rarity in Washington these days…) and allow people to make a profit so they can tax them as they rightly should.
