from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
I think it was Rush Limbaugh who long ago said that no matter what happens, no matter the situation, no matter what the economy looks like or how many are suffering – the government will never go without. They will never cut back or offer relief.
No matter what happens around them, they will always insist that you pay your taxes.
When times are tough, private sector companies will extend payment terms, lower prices, do whatever they have to do to survive, but to also do what they can so there customers may survive.
The real American patriots are those who risk losing everything, but on their own terms, not the government’s.
Despite the plight of small business during this government-imposed crisis, “Lawmakers in nine [leftist] states are proposing higher taxes on the wealthy to help fill growing budget holes from the coronavirus pandemic, and the list is likely to grow, according to a legislative group.”
There is never a thought of cutting back, cutting the budget, cutting a few programs – nor maybe taking a pay cut themselves. It must be nice to be so insulated from anything resembling a conscience. Pain for thee, but not for me.
But just who are the “wealthy”? A lot of the so-called wealthy are the aforementioned small-business owners and entrepreneurs. Government hacks and the mainstream media portray the “wealthy” as some homogeneous agglomeration of top-hatted Monopoly barons.
However, we know that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Many of the “wealthy” are our next door neighbors, who work ridiculous hours building and maintaining their businesses. They put their heart, soul and every dime they have into them.
