Wealthy paying less taxes and other Dem myths

The Dem propaganda is getting rampant. Mitt Romney pays less taxes that the working people. Does he really? All of his income are investments. Like all investment incomes it is taxed at a lower rate. Because it’s money that he saved after paying the full rate taxes on it once when he earned it. This is the second time he is paying taxes on it.

Too complex ?

Here is how it goes.

Say you are a plumber called Joe. Joe makes 100K a year. He is taxed 22% on it. He pays $22K in taxes then keeps 78K for himself. Out of the 78K he spends 58K in paying bills and saves $20K.

The 20K is his investment income. he has already paid 22% taxes on it once. It is his saved money. In my opinion he can do whatever he wants with it . Use it as toilet paper, burn it on a campfire, whatever.  It’s his money. But if he puts it in an investment account he will be taxed AGAIN, albeit at a lower rate of 13% by the govt. 

The investment income is money you already paid once at the regular tax rate. This is why the second time you are taxed on it at a lower rate.

Democrats mislead people into believing that people who are living off of their investment income should be taxed a SECOND time at the same rate as they paid the first time. Why? because they were conservative enough to save it and not blow it? The Democrat operatives put out a propaganda that totally obscures the reality of the situation. Unfortunately the Repubs have not done a good job explaining the facts which even a 16 yr old should know. If you are an Independent you should consider the facts and not buy into the Obama propaganda pitting one group against another. People who save against people who spend.

Bogus polls and oversampling

According to polls nearly ALL states are leaning towards Obama and even the loser Dem Senate candidates are winning. How did this happen? Must be the awesome Obama handling of the economy …. or the skillful handling of mid east violence! I am being sarcastic of course. Is there any verifiable reason why people have suddenly fallen in love with Obama if polls are to be believed ? Especially after they voted Dems out of Congress in a landslide just two years ago? There is no explanation and if you are a Obama zombie you better believe it, dont ask questions and eat your peas.  

There is an explanation, the Dems say. People just dislike Romney that much. Really? Why then are the unknown Dem Senate candidates winning in the same polls? Makes no sense. These candidates are not running against Romney. Especially since they claim the hugely popular Tommy Thompson of WI is losing his Senate race and Obama is up in Red States like Arizona and NC?

I think its a carefully orchestrated propaganda by the Lib media. Obama has overspent all his money as usual . The man couldn’t balance a checkbook if his life depended on it. He is desperately trying to raise more money and this propaganda he thinks is not only going to help him raise money it might even demoralize the Republicans into not going to the polls.

I am not fooled by it and it will only strengthen the determination of the Republican voters. We need real change and we need a new Admin.

The OHIO strategy

Ohio in any Presidential race signifies a make or break State without which no Republican candidate can win the WH.

Current polling shows Romney is behind just a little. But then this year the polls are highly misleading with oversampling of Dems which is putting Obama ahead even in Red States which is hard to believe.

Having said that what would it take for Romney to win Ohio?

It can be done. Remember Ohio is more or less socially conservative. Romney needs to tell people Obama is a gay marriage supporter who will nationalize gay marriage. Obama is also a self-professed income redistributor, using working people’s tax money on wasteful projects like Solyndra and Obamacare. Obamacare will put an additional financial burden on people to the tune of 6 million working people. Obamacare is also forcing the Catholic Church and its subsidies to pay for contraceptives against their faith. The reason Ohio hasn’t suffered too badly is largely due to their Republican Governor. Governor Kasich should take this election very seriously. There is a possibility that there will be rampant voter fraud. He needs to have security, cameras, ID checking and whatever devices he deems appropropriate at Dem polling places. He needs to verify absentee ballots. He needs to make sure overseas servicemen and women are able to mail in their ballots in a timely manner. If Romney can make his case and Kasich can prevent voter fraud Ohio will be won by Republicans.

Is Romney to blame

I am tired of hearing from every Liberal pundit and even some Republicans how un-saleable Mitt Romney is. That the swing state polls should have Obama down by 20 points. Why is it that he is slightly ahead? It’s Romney’s fault. He is not charismatic enough. Not glib enough to sell himelf as a viable alternative. Too scary for the middle class voter.

While I also feel that the swing state polls are strange I would not attribute that to being Romney’s fault. There could be a variety of reasons for Obama being ahead by a few digit points in all of these swing states. First I think they are over sampling the Democrats. Not that many Democrats are going to rally behind Obama this time. Espcially people who had already voted for him last time. They have buyer remorse. A lot of them never voted before or voted Republican before. They thought they were doing something noble. Unfortunately they feel guilty now. Not only have they suffered, their family has, their neighbors have. Secretly they are all saying : We gave you a chance. You had your chance you blew it.

When times are hard, people are hard on themselves. They are trying to stretch every dollar, making budgets for their families, working those extra few hours to supplement the loss in income over the last four years. These people are not in a generous mood to give Obama another shot, some more leeway, some more rope like he is asking for. They don’t have that chance themselves , that extra leeway under his Administration. They are not feeling the largess, the generosity of spirit that they extended to him 4 long years ago.

Obama’s strategy seems to be to paint Romney as an untrustworthy guy. Someone who doesn’t have everyone’s interest at heart. As if his character alone disqualifies him from winning the Presidency. The likeability factor.

Strangely though that strategy might backfire. The last thing Romney should do now is try to be another Obama in likeability. The contrast between him and Obama is stark enough and that should stand. He stands as the un-Obama just like Obama once stood as the un-Bush. Whether people vote for Romeny depends on the degree of their disillusionment of Obama. If their life and economic status has taken a hit during the last four years they will vote for the un-Obama. If they are still doing fine and their life has not been significantly affected by the downturn in economy they will vote for Obama. Which means the wealthy Hollywood crowd, the Liberal TV pundits, the welfare recipients who have never held a job and doesnt ever aspire to, these people’s lives have not changed due to the economic downturn. While they are a small percentage NOT half, these people will vote for Obama. Even people who are Liberals but who have been hard hit by economy will not vote for idealogy alone. They may still like Obama but they will lack the enthusiasm to go and vote for him.

And despite the negative ads against Romney you have to see WHAT the ads are focusing on. To be honest they are attacking irrelevant areas of his life. Does anyone care where the Romneys bank? What he did in high school or what is in his tax returns? Romney never did anything SO bad as to downturn an entire country’s economy, downgrade our Nation’s credit. He never did anything SO horrendous as to cause damage on a vast scale such as this Adminstration has. You can say his vices are small because he has never been President. So he laid off a few people in his company. Is that it? His policies never caused chaos and violence abroad because he has never had that opportunity to cause so much destruction. But that logic is hypothetical. As it stands Romney’s bad acts are small and insignificant and no matter how much the Dems try to blow them up to a larger than life size it is very hard to sell.

Most people don’t believe the case the Dems are making against Romney. Most people believe he is a smart, hard working but boring guy with few distractions. He wil not spend most of his days at the golf course, or parties every night, or lavish vacations. He will do what he has always done in every job. Work in an obsessive disciplined way. Finish projects he has started. The story that he will rob the middle class blind and give their money to the rich is a myth. Is there any proof or past behavior that indicates this pattern? Did he do this at the Olympics or in MA where he dealt with people’s tax money? How many Solyndras did he fund with middle class people’s money? How many Stimulus did he dole out? None. He does not have a track record which can bolster the Dem’s claim that Romney while in a political job misappropriated middle class people’s tax money in any substantial way.

Romney should just do rallies and bus tours through swing states now. Let people see him, hear him. They will not be put off by who he is. They do NOT want another Obama.
