FULL Repeal is Tax Reform!

This is going to be brief because seriously, I am so sick of the Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell lies regarding so many things that I could spit. 

Mark Sandford was right. 

Mike Lee was right. 

Seven years of promises and now the Republican Progressives are equally as corrupt as any Democrat Progressive when it comes to looking out for the taxpayers. And so are the alleged Moderates. 

There is no stinking thing as a Moderate. A Moderate is also a Progressive. 

Spit. 

Bottom line, I cannot read one more report about anything to do with whatever the current bill is being promoted or set out there to keep, even partially, ObamacareHELL.

The principle of good governance depends on leaders who understand choice and accountability, the law of the harvest – meaning bad things happen to good people but when looked at with the law of abundance, there is enough to go around IF the government gets out of the way.  

Everyone knows the government does not create wealth nor can it compel a spirit of charity or benevolence, or altruism as the secularists call it. 

Government gives and takes money away. It takes from some to give to others. That is not charity. That is forced redistribution of wealth and that is neither freedom nor benevolence. 

Real tax reform begins with Full Repeal of the Obamacare Tax. There cannot be any bailouts. And Congress needs to get a grip on itself. Congress must rise up to CUT, CAP and BALANCE THE BUDGET if real tax reform is to have any effect. Congressional addiction to living out of taxpayer pockets must end.

WHEN will GOP Leadership just go with the flow and have an UP or DOWN VOTE on #FullRepeal?

Or is the GOP Leadership afraid to merely shut up and and simply vote Yes or No on #FullRepeal?

Jim Jordan did a fantastic job on ABC yesterday. He understands how to #FrameTheDebate when it comes to #ObamacareHell.  Jordan understands that:17040848719_b3c71b538c_b

  • Americans have lost their doctors. 
  • Americans are paying penalties for care they cannot afford nor deserve.
  • Americans have outrageous increases in premiums that keep going up.
  • Americans know the ACA is a taxpayer nightmare for generations to come.
  • Americans know they had the best healthcare system in the world long before the Progressives began meddling in and changing the system. 
  • Americans know that Congress has the right to to FULL REPEAL ALL OF THE ACA.
  • Americans know Congress has the power to set the nation back on proper course.

To clarify things for Republican Leadership: 

  1. Americans know Jim Jordan is keeping his promise to fully repeal Obamacare.
  2. Americans support Jim Jordan for his integrity in pressing forward with #FullRepeal.
  3. Americans heartedly commend Jim Jordan for breaking away from weak Republican Leadership.  

And to be sure there is no misunderstanding, Americans are sick and tired of middle-of-the-road–milk toast – mediocre Republicans in the House and Senate. Americans will no longer tolerate your backroom dealings with your front room facades. 

The #BetterWay, the best solution, is to simply vote on One Sentence: Full Repeal First.

Mother HOA, May I?

Chelsea Park HOA vs First Amendment

Having lived in my “deed restricted” community since 2006 and having placed political signs in my yard each election cycle, and having seen political signs in my neighborhood all these years, guess what came in my mailbox this week? 

Anti Political Signs HOA

So here is the June 1995 Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions of Chelsea Park, retrieved from the World Wide Web sign decree in this screenshot: 

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 11.09.26 PM

Who would ever think that section was meant to stifle free speech during an election cycle? Who would think that would be used to deny Chelsea Park Residents their First Amendment Right to place a sign to support of a Candidate during a Primary Election Cycle or to override the United States Constitution

Seriously. When did the HOA decide to enforce this rule and apply it to Political Signs during a Primary Election Cycle? Especially THIS political cycle?

How is it the HOA allows that one can put up all sorts of holiday decorations and holiday signs throughout the year but not a Candidate sign during an election cycle? And how is it one can put up a Football or Baseball Team Flag but not a sign for a Candidate during an election cycle?  

Did someone say Mother HOA, May I? 

Perhaps I need to get a flag for my Candidate made and fly it from a flag pole like the Sport flags or banners I see in some yards. Or maybe getting a partial wrap on my truck so I can park it on the street or my driveway for my Candidate is in order?

Mother HOA, May I?

Oh wait. I hate that game. So allow me to #FrameTheDebate by asking some other questions:

  1. Why would any HOA Board of Directors stifle any resident from exercising the right and moral obligation to uphold civic standards by being Politically Active during any election cycle? 
  2. Why has the HOA Board of Directors chosen this particular year to attack political yard signs during the most critical Republican Primary in Florida? 
  3. Why, when my candidate’s sign has been up for over one month’s time, is this now an issue when Absentee/Early voting ballots are being sent out on January 30th? 
  4. Did a neighbor complain?
  5. Does the current HOA Rule Enforcer have a Political Sign issue? (We all have our issues.)
  6. Was it the original intent of the Covenant/Rules writers to kill a homeowners unalienable right to exercise the 1st Amendment during any campaign season?
  7. How does the HOA pick and choose which signs are yard worthy for display outside of the for sale-for rent restriction? 

Honestly, it has never occurred to me that placing my candidate(s) sign on my personal property during an election cycle was a violation of the sacred HOA covenants. After all, seasonal items are placed in someone’s yard all year round because like I said, we all have our issues that mean something to us in their season. 

When will Bill Posey Frame the Debate to Reclaim America?

The phrase “the system is broken” when it comes to Congress makes me irate. The problem is too many Politicians are Corrupt and Abusing Power for Personal Gain. It appears they, miscreant politicians, are the ones employing sophistry in by trying break honorable men and women who are working to reclaim America.

I keep looking to my representatives, especially Bill Posey (R), to stand out as a leaders in framing the debate regarding the Washington Cartel holding the system hostage with the phraseology “broken budget process.”  After all, Republicans are in charge, not the Democrats. And my representative, Bill Posey, should expose any Republican working to pass bills favoring the Progressive agenda. Bill Posey should name the names of those behind close doors, negotiating with Democrats, far from public oversight and transparent, open debate. 

The huge Omnibus bill was not critical. An Omnibus bill is never essential or necessary to getting things done on the hill.  The Omnibus Bill  is and continues to be perpetuated by those who are THE BROKEN SYSTEM and by those who do not frame the debate to stop it.

The Shutdown, to stop totalitarianism, is never a bad thing. It should have been used to protect taxpayers from 1.1 Trillion in spending that burdens taxpayers. The Shutdown should be used EVERY time to press forward with a Conservative Agenda. Bill Posey needs to learn how to frame that debate if he is serious about his Libertarian-leaning Republican claims as a financially conservative guy. 

Shutting down the government to push for smaller, more responsible spending in government is not a bad thing. Therefore Posey must lead from the front, not behind, in teaching his constituents that fact.

Shutting down the government is the responsibility of Congress, of which Bill Posey is member. The onus is on Congress to effectively use the Power of the Purse to stop any Totalitarian from living out of taxpayer pockets while bankrupting America. Congress can and must have the will to shut down the government, just as it must have the will to force Obama to veto bill after bill to reclaim America thus allowing Obama to solidify his Anti-American agenda with the swish of his pen. 

Please understand that I, with many others in Florida, really want to support Bill Posey in any well-stated conservative position that he adequately frames for debate. But he must articulate what he will do, as a l-e-a-d-e-r, to reclaim America from Progressive Totalitarians.

  • What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to limit the size and scope of the federal government and return authority to states and to the American people?
  • What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to cut taxes and spending and rein in the debt?
  • What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to get rid of Obamacare and promote healthcare solutions based on free enterprise, not government controls?
  • What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to protect America from foreign threats, secure the border, and develop a robust, principled foreign policy that puts America first?
  • What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to ensure that our judges and lawmakers uphold the Constitution of the United States, starting by halting executive overreach?

 

Reclaim America: Rise Up, then Go and Do.

On Friday, November 6th, I attended the Heritage Foundation RECLAIM AMERICA event in West Palm. To meet Jim DeMint and Mike Needham, to listen to them teach and discuss that which matters most to me regarding our nation was absolutely inspiring. And then to meet so many delightful people who love America as much as I do was encouraging for they believe, like I believe, in Opportunity for All and Favoritism to None.
IMG_2152

As I listened and learned from many women and men concerned with the progressive track Congress is taking, two questions are firmly planted in my mind:

  1. How can I help vet candidates, especially in this current political season, to know what kind of representation he/she will consistently give constituents once he/she lives in Washington D.C.?
  2. What will I do to invite and inspire others to actively take part in holding our representatives accountable? 

Jim DeMint with

Well, thinking through the second question first, I have my blog and I am a firm believer in All Politics Is Local so am working to modify my blog to a neighborhood newsletter in the hopes I can have some influence within my immediate sphere. But I need to be better about inviting people to join me in supporting Heritage Foundation and to become a Heritage Action Sentinel or at least donate to Heritage Action. Therefore I can and will do better to invite others to help change the current culture of corruption in Washington, D.C.  (Consider those links your invitation to rise up and go and donate!)

Mike Needham with Bob Trento and Carol Manning

The first question is the one I feel a sense of urgency about, especially here in the Florida Senate Primary. The newcomer, Todd Wilcox, has no real background in politics but he is billing himself as an outsider to challenge a known record of Ron DeSantis. (See DeSantis scorecard listings near the middle of this post.) 

Wilcox has posted on his site Todd Wilcox for U.S. Senate a  Politico caption that concerns me. Wilcox is great at giving his briefing about himself and he speaks well on this radio interview. Yet knowing Politco’s history toward Conservatives makes me go “Hmmmm…”. The radio interview sorely lacks policy specifics on what he will do let alone why he is better than DeSantis, who is a Veteran too, again, with a known voting record.

So what I have done and will continue to do and invite others to join me in doing is to ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS. If we all ask the SAME FIVE QUESTIONS over and over again until ANY candidate, including Incumbents, answer then we control the agenda to Reclaim America:

  1. What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to cut taxes and spending and rein in the debt?

  2. What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to limit the size and scope of the federal government and return authority to states and to the American people?

  3. What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to get rid of Obamacare and promote healthcare solutions based on free enterprise, not government controls?

  4. What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to protect America from foreign threats, secure the border, and develop a robust, principled foreign policy that puts America first?

  5. What are you doing or What will you do as a LEADER to ensure that our judges and lawmakers uphold the Constitution of the United States, starting by halting executive overreach?

Enlightened, Enriched, and Empowered: A Representative Republic

An article headline appears on my Twitter feed yesterday morning. Opening the link, then reading it, I thought my head would absolutely explode. The conversation appears to be ripped from the #DCCartel or #WashingtonCartel narrative that has not, apparently, changed since January 2014.

Here is basically what I had to say to my Representative Bill Posey (R-FL) last year and what I continue to say today regarding  THE (alleged) GROUP TOO RADICAL FOR REPUBLICANS.

spending-cuts-600

As a member of Heritage Foundation I am highly disturbed by the attitude Progressive Republicans have towards me, a concrned citizen often in sore disagreement with people like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. I vehemently disagree with the Progressive Agenda. Having been an activist long before joining Heritage Action (HAction), I am now dedicated to working on Reclaim America as a member of Heritage Foundation and HAction.

It is my right and my civil obligation to join with good men and women in honorable organizations to increase my capacity to make my voice heard. It is also my right and civil obligation to be well informed in order to speak my mind.

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and too many other Republicans, in my opinion, do not stand on firm ground as true Conservatives. It appears they vote for money or projects that help keep them in office as they talk about how much money is needed to shore up lifestyles to which their constituents feel “entitled” via a redistribution of wealth. (see Will Bill Posey Help with Indian River as an example.) Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 11.22.15 PM

It is fascinating how too many Republicans cry foul against a well proven, Constitutionally focus-driven organization like Heritage Foundation. HAction is effectively keeping grassroots individuals, like me, well informed about what Progressives are actually doing to their constituents but that prevents Progressives from going to Heritage Foundation for policy checks and balances? I do not think so.

Funny how too many Republicans praise their ratings from other organizations that support their Progressive agendas. It is interesting they have no problem going to whomever best suits what unelected bureaucrats or insider lobbyists tell them needs to happen next.

As a longtime member of Heritage Foundation, I often use their research. In fact, I used their research long before joining as a basic member on a variety of issues with which I was concerned.  And now, thanks to being a member of HAction and social networking, people like me work together to affect ALL claiming to be Republicans because Republicans, especially the Progressive ones, need public oversight.  HAction gives me additional tools to reach out to every member of Congress with my opinion. HAction empowers me to take on the Progressive bullies in Congress.

Having the right to defend and protect my vote that I cast for my congressional delegates, I have the right to be heard regardless of any organization to which I belong or from which I do research. And I have the right to challenge every legislator or staffer’s misplaced loyalties to his/her own self-aggrandizement.

I had to laugh when, if as reported “a former senior Republican leadership staffer” said:

When I arrived on Capitol Hill, The Heritage Foundation was an invaluable partner and a trusted source for conservative policy for my boss. When I left Capitol Hill the relationship was toxic and even hostile, and members were searching for anyone to fill that vacuum. There is no longer any difference between The Heritage Foundation and the Action political shop. They are one.

Really? Who lied or changed to a Progressive Agenda once elected to the Congress? They and the Democrat Party are as One. They and their staffers are the ones who are no longer trusted sources. (Check out Rep. Thomas Masse talking about staff here. )Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 11.13.42 PM

Heritage Researchers are still spectacularly nonpartisan. Heritage is for freedom, for transparency, and notoriously thorough in discussing issues. Heritage and Heritage Action usually present both sides no matter how wrong one side is, even if they made a mistake.

In the last fifteen years I have often been referred to other organizations and experts by Heritage Foundation. No one has ever told me what to say or how to feel about any subject or what to do to make them money. That is more than I can say for the alleged straight-talk coming out of alleged bipartisan support that goes on behind closed doors and not adequately debated even in public forums.

2015 Index of Culture and OpportunitySuggesting Heritage Action is a Bully is simply a lie. Standing against tyrannical-progressive agendas is not bullying. Disagreeing with fervor is not bullying. And speaking for myself, lobbying independently as a citizen is not bullying no matter what organization I choose to join in order to keep myself enlightened, enriched, and empowered.

And best of all, being a member of HAction allows me to debate, persuade, and be persuaded by other activists. We talk amongst ourselves. We have no fear of retribution. We have no fear of being cast out for a difference of opinion. We are, again, Enlightened, Enriched, and Empowered because we belong to a free-thinking society.

So to all you whining, egotists in office who feel the voters breath on your neck and our beady eyes boring into your souls, I do not care how you feel. YOU SAID you would get things done therefore please answer these Five Questions and let the discourse begin. Let us have an open dialogue and reclaim America!

1. What are you doing as a LEADER to cut taxes and spending and rein in the debt?

2. What are you doing as a LEADER to limit the size and scope of the federal government and return authority to states and to the American people?

3. What are you doing as a LEADER to get rid of Obamacare and promote health care solutions based on free enterprise, not government controls?

4. What are you doing as aLEADER to protect America from foreign threats, secure the border, and develop a robust, principled foreign policy that puts America first?

5. What are you doing as a LEADER to ensure that our judges and lawmakers uphold the Constitution of the United States, starting by halting executive overreach?

Consumption Tax, Fair Tax or FLAT Tax?

There are good ideas regarding the Consumption and the Fair Tax plans out there. Dean Clancy is a favorite read of mine on the tax subject. Of course as a member of Heritage Foundation I follow Heritage’s research on tax issues, and totally loved this government data sheet recently shared by The Daily Signal on Taxpayers Leaving Democrat-Run States. CATO has their take on taxes and plans too.

So my bias is toward a Flat Tax. Yes, it is based upon the principle of Tithing. Yes I believe it is a principle with a promise as founded upon the teachings of Malachi 3:8-12 in the Old Testament. Yes, it is based upon how The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates by way of faithful saints paying an honest and generous tithe coupled with additional free-will donations to feed the poor, sustain a perpetual education fund plus a variety of calls to action to relieve suffering through humanitarian aid around the world. Tithing is the foundation of what Welfare really means: Faring Well.

Okay, so with all of the pros and cons for why people do not believe a Flat Tax will work, I simply say there is longstanding proof that tithing works, more so than a consumption tax or a fair tax plan. The suggestions that faith based individuals give more is abundantly clear by looking to Mercury One to see what Glenn Beck is doing with no-overhead donations. The truly greater good people do effectively sans government “help” seems to lend credence to the fact a Flat Tax with free-will offerings on a National and Local level will work.

Imagine what would happen in our States and Cities if power was returned to We, The People at the local level and the IRS was abolished based upon Malachi 3:8-12? Just what will the outcome be?

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.
