Tax rates

If taxes are like this in Europe and the current regime 'admires' Europe and wants US to fall in line with them, this is what you will have to look forward to.

If you've started to wonder what the real costs of socialism are going to be, once the full program in these United States hits your wallet, take a look at the table.  As you digest these mind-boggling figures, keep in mind that in spite of these astronomical tax rates, these countries are still not financing their social welfare programs exclusively from tax revenues!  They are deeply mired in public debt of gargantuan proportions.  Greece has reached the point where its debt is so huge it is in imminent danger of defaulting.  That is the reason the European economic community has intervened to bail them    out.  If youre following the financial news, you know Spain and Portugal are right behind Greece.

The United States is now heading right down the same path.  Why?  Why can't the Congress SEE what is right in front of them instead of pushing the VAT and the 'cap and trade' taxes that will rob you of more of your money.  The VAT tax in the table is the national sales tax that Europeans pay.  Stay tuned because that is exactly what you can expect to see the administration proposing after the fall elections.  The initial percentage in the United States isnt going to be anywhere near the outrageous numbers you now see in Europe .  Guess what, the current outrageous numbers in Europe didnt start out as outrageous either.  They started out as minisculeright around the 1% or 2% where they will start out in the United States .  Magically however, they ran up over the years to where they are now.  Expect the same thing here.

It is the notion that with hard work and perseverance, anybody can get ahead economically here.  Do you think that can ever happen with tax rates between 60% and    80%?  Think again.  With the government taking that percentage of your money, your life will be exactly like life in Europe .  You will never be able to buy a home.  You will never buy a car.  You will never send your children to college.  Only the socialists and their cronies will.  Lets not shuffle the battle cry of the socialists under the rug either.  Its always the same cry.   Equalize income.  Spread the wealth to the poor (whoever they are).   Level the economic playing field.  Accomplish that and everything will be rosy.

Its time to take a really hard look at reality.  Greece is a perfect example.  Despite the socialist system that has ruled this country for decades, with a 65% tax rate, they are drowning in public debt, would have defaulted without hundreds of billions in bailout money, and still... 20% of their population lives in poverty.  What has all that socialist money bought, besides ultimate power for the politicians running the show?  Do you think these people are "free"?  They're not.  They are slaves to their economic "system."
This is where we are going unless we throw the present Congress and Obama out.
Instead of spreading the wealth around, spread this around. It might wake some people up
