Comparison of Taxing Issue of the different parties.

Bill Mohr ran for State Representative in the 76th District 2008. My sister sent me his comparisons on the issues for the Parties. I decided to post this so everyone can see where they fall when it comes to Living by our Constitution or Picking and Choosing what parts if any you want restored.

NOTE: Gerald Celente said in his Fall 2009 Trends Report. When people lose everything, the people will lose it. We saw a sample of that yesterday when Joe Stack flew his plane into the IRS Building in Texas. If you haven't read his suicide note, you should. CLICK HERE

""To bereave a man of life, or by violence to confiscate his estate, without accusation or trial, would be so gross and notorious an act of despotism, as must at once convey the alarm of tyranny throughout the whole nation; but confinement of the person, by secretly hurrying him to jail, where his sufferings are unknown or forgotten, is a less public, a less striking, and therefore A MORE DANGEROUS ENGINE of arbitrary government.""
~~~ Alexander Hamilton
(in Federalist Paper No. 84, quoting Blackstone)

“The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the state nor to his neighbor to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend criminate him. He owes no such duty to the state since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are as such existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of the law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.” Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43, 74 (1906).

This Comparison is on Taxes.

Constitution Party - US Taxpayers Party in Michigan
Since 1913, our Constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property have been abridged and diminished by the imposition on each of us of Federal income, payroll, and estate taxes. This is an unconstitutional Federal assumption of direct taxing

Moreover, it is our intention to replace, with a tariff based revenue system supplemented by excise taxes, the current tax system of the U.S. government (including income taxes, payroll taxes, and estate taxes.)

Comments: I recently received an email from Roy Schmidt, Representative for the 76th District here in Grand Rapids, in which he was very critical of those who consistently cried, "more tax cuts", explaining the state can cut no more spending. It
has to raise taxes. I have a question for the Honorable Roy Schmidt, "I too, cannot cut anymore. I am tapped out. Any more cuts will cause me to sacrifice part of my quality of life." I would much rather the bloated and gluttonous state government
suffer losses of 'life' rather than its residents.

Democratic Party
We must reform our tax code. It’s thousands of pages long, a monstrosity that high priced lobbyists have rigged with page after page of special interest loopholes and tax shelters. We will shut down the corporate loopholes and tax havens and use the
money so that we can provide an immediate middle-class tax cut that will offer relief to workers and their families. We’ll eliminate federal income taxes for millions of retirees, because all seniors deserve to live out their lives with dignity and respect.

We will not increase taxes on any family earning under $250,000 and we will offer additional tax cuts for middle class families. For families making more than $250,000, we’ll ask them to give back a portion of the Bush tax cuts to invest in health care and other key priorities.

Comments: Has anyone voted for a lobbyist recently? I don't recall seeing one on the ballot. LOBBYISTS DON'T PASS LEGISLATION!!! Congressmen and Legislators do! Are you retired folks and middle class enjoying your tax cuts? How's that working out for you?

Libertarian Party
All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal
requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors.

Comments: Just think of all the money business could save and put back into the economy if they didn't have all the expenses associated with payroll deduction. This is absolutely the right position. Once again, the Libertarian Party agrees with our

Republican Party
Today’s Democratic Party views the tax code as a tool for social engineering. They use it to control our behavior, steer our choices, and change the way we live our lives. The Republican Party will put a stop to both social engineering and corporate handouts by simplifying tax policy, eliminating special deals, and putting those saved dollars back into the taxpayer's pockets.

Republicans support tax credits for health care and medical expenses.

We support a tax code that encourages personal savings

Government can play an important role in addressing economic dislocations by modernizing its re-training and unemployment assistance programs.

Because affordable housing is in the national interest, any simplified tax system should continue to encourage homeownership...

Comments: The Republican's first statement about taxes in their platform is an accusation of the Democrats of trying to control our behavior, steer our choices and change the way we live our lives. Then they go on to state that they support revising
the tax code for the purpose of health care, encouraging personal savings, assistance programs and encouraging home ownership. That's not controlling our behavior, steering our choices and changing the way we live our lives?

I have an idea. Just cut all the unconstitutional and immoral spending so we can eliminate the federal income tax. Show me a Republican administration in the last five decades that actually cut taxes (keeping in mind that the income tax is only one
of many tax systems delving into your pockets). The phrase, "Read my lips. No new taxes" was uttered by the same man who first spoke publically about his drive to implement the New World Order. Remember? George Bush Sr. - Republican. The
phrase was spoken during his campaign for President, and winning the victory, he introduced the largest tax increase in history at that time. Nothing has changed. The direction remains the same.
