Will America flourish or perish?

-A A +A

Americans are being forced to make a critical decision of survival on our precious nation. Will Americans humble themselves and become more self-sufficient, while separating themselves from government’s demands and privileges, thus allowing and endorsing our nation to again flourish within a free and open constitutionally-supported economy?
As legislated primarily by Capitol Hill Democrats, our nation’s out-of-control government spending is nearing the brink of a total fiscal disaster.
Currently, some 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income taxes. What this means is that each taxpayer in the other 53 percentile are forced to pay enormous taxes to support the 47 percent non-taxpayers.
Taxpayers in the 53 percent, who pay federal income taxes, have had their income taxes increase and stretched to the extreme.
The 47 percent who pay no federal income taxes represent three groups:
1. Mostly those who have earned their way, are retired and/or invested in tax programs designed to keep government bonds at a low rate and/or entrepreneurs investing in programs to make new jobs or expand existing jobs for our labor force within our free and open economy.
2. Those who are handicapped or disabled.
3. A third group represents those who may be too lazy to seek a job, refuse to work hard and are unwilling to become a permanent employee. Others in the 47 percent group earn money under the table by selling illegal drugs, gambling or committing crimes.
The third group is the one most detested by American taxpayers. Why should employees who worked hard to build a better life for themselves and their families have the government take it away and give it to those in the third group?
Those in the third group are destroying our nation.
Capitol Hill Democrats have led the way in enlarging our government. Capitol Hill Democrats have bought and sold peoples’ needs by passing laws providing all needs to all people all the time. Our government spending and extended entitlements are out of control. Government must cut back on spending and other administrative abuses.
Are Capitol Hill Democrats willing to implement a turnaround to save our nation? I doubt it. Are many of the 47 percent who pay no federal taxes willing to accept less government privileges to save our nation? Those who believe in constitutional liberty for all will vote accordingly.
Many of those in the third group think that as long as the money and entitlements are coming to them, everything is OK.
However, the United States is on the brink of fiscal failure.
Our utmost hope is for a majority of American voters to see, understand and correct the nearing sunset by voting Nov. 6 to defeat all self-serving liberals before it is too late. Doing so will assure sunrises on tomorrows for our children and their children.
It is now up to the American voters. Will our nation flourish or perish?
