For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent

From ushistory.org:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

[…] The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

[…]For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

[…]And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
July 4, 1776

The American Founders unanimously pledged (in solemn prayer) their lives, fortunes, and honor to one another in this treasonous act against the British monarchy, a system in which liberties were awarded according to the will of a king.  The core foundation of the American way (unanimously deemed incompatible with the British way) was that rights were endowed by mens’ Creator (no middle man or men), and that among these rights was the pursuit of happiness.

Senators Biden and Obama subscribe to the philosophy that paying higher taxes is patriotic – that it’s the Federal Government’s job to “spread the wealth around.”

Senators Obama and Biden, your policies would most certainly represent Change, but not new change.  And I suppose you could call your tax policies patriotic.  But I’m an American patriot, not an 18th century British patriot.

    Obama’s tax plan will destroy the Social Security system.

    Obama says his income tax plan will lower taxes for 95% of Americans. There is just one problem with this, 40% of Americans already pay no income tax. Obama’s response to this is that these people pay Social Security tax. Well, that’s not income tax, but a contribution to their retirement plan. So if he wins and implements his tax plan, for the first time in the history of Social Security, 40% of the people who will get retirement benefits will have paid nothing for them. Social Security will then loose all pretext of being a retirement plan, and will become a national welfare program.

    This will cause Social Security to lose public support in a massive way. Leave Social Security contributions out of income tax plans. If you take some peoples income taxes to pay others Social Security taxes, Social Security will be destroyed forever.

    Even today, Social Security withholdings are not a contribution to one’s own retirement. These monies go directly to current Social Security recipients. There is no Lock Box. It’s already a system that discourages personal responsibility.

    Social Security is an entitlement that Dems use for fear mongering when it’s politically expedient to do so.
