POLLS THAT MAKE PERFECT SENSE
I have saved three seperate Rasmussen polls that seem to fit together
like hand in glove. It is a window into the souls of the dependent
class. The first poll is on whether Americans think they are taxed too
much. The second is whether people think more taxes are needed and the
third questions whether the US economy is fair.
#1 Do you think you are overtaxed?
49% said yes, 29% said no and 23% are not sure. Now the first thing
you have to realize is that only 53% of Americans pay income tax. 47%
do not. These numbers intrigued me and also reiterated the fact that
the teacher’s unions have destroyed the brains of many of our kids. We
can assume that the 49% who said yes are taxpayers and if we assume the
other 4% of taxpayers are in the “Not Sure” category, that means 19% of
the people who took the poll pay no taxes and are still not sure if they
pay too much. That’s like me wondering if I get too much sex from
#2 Do you think the rich pay enough taxes?
49% say they don’t. This is obviously the 47% who pay no taxes plus 2%
who do. 24% say the rich do pay their fair share while 21% say they
pay more than their fair share. So the nontaxpayers think the taxpayers
should pay even more. Our parents would be ashamed of such an
attitude. My father had 8 children and never made much more than
minimum wage. We were qualified for almost every government give away
And whenever one of his friends would suggest he should do it, he
would get very angry. We spent the summers raising our 5 gardens and
trouncing through the woods digging ginseng. At the end of the summer,
we’d sell it and the money bought our school clothes. In the winter,
we’d set 80 to 100 traps, which we would go out and check every morning
before work and school. We never had much of a Christmas and we used
the money for additional school clothes. We only had a small black and
white TV and when it broke down for good, we might not have another one
for 6 months. We had very little but my father was proud of everything
we had because we earned it. As a kid, I resented what other kids had.
As an adult, I feel the same sense of pride my father had.
#3 Do you think the US economy is fair to everyone?
49% said no. Three polls and three 49% results. Is that a
coincidence? I think not. 47% think the economy is fair. We are
seeing a familiar pattern arising. Democrats controlled both houses of
congress for over 40 years by threatening that republicans would cut off
people’s welfare and Social Security. The liberals lost that when
Bill Clinton agreed with the Republican congress on a welfare reform
bill. They are just like heroin dealers who give you free heroin until
you get hooked. From that point on, you pay dearly for your fix with
your vote. The 49% think it’s not fair that the successful studied in
school, went to college, perhaps risked everything they had to start a
business and made something of themselves. They feel they are entitled
to the same success, despite the fact they cut and possibly quit school,
did not train themselves for a job or put in any effort to speak of
Welcome to Obama’s America.
