Fired Up - Political Rants

Rant #1:

It pisses me off when Obama says we cannot afford tax cuts for the wealthy. First, nobody is talking about cutting taxes. With the economy the way it is, many in Congress are trying to keep rates where they have been since 2001.

Next, it pisses me off when Obama says we cannot afford to keep the rates where they are for taxpayers who make more than $250,000 per year. Obama's assumption is that it is the government's money and the government cannot afford for us to keep OUR money. What happened to private property rights? So is the assumption that it is the government who determines how much of our earnings we can keep? I fear for the future for my children.

Lastly (for now), the top 1% in our country pays 39% of the taxes. Obama continues to campaign that it is time for the wealthy to pay their fair share. The wealthy are paying their fair share and with Obamacare kicking in next year, it will only get worse.

Rant #2:

I hope Romney picks either Rubio or Ryan for his VP.

Rant #3:

Harry Reid is a despicable human being.

Romney has released 2 years of tax data and financial information. That is enough. Right dirty, dingy, senile Harry Reid?

Rant #4:


$5 trillion in additional debt. What is he running on? Not his record which is abysmal.

Rant #5:

I am for gay rights. Let's let people live their lives without interference. But how hypocritical is it for the Mayors of Boston and Chicago to criticize the owner of Chick fil a? What happened to tolerance? Tolerance is only demanded when you are a leftist. Why can't the left be respectful of a man and a business owner who believes in traditional marriage? I just don't get it.

  1. Rant #1:

    The top 1% make about 22% of the income so the fact that they pay about 39% of the taxes suggests they're doing more than their "fair share".

    Rant #2:

    I think Rubio is more plausible. Florida has 29 electoral votes and Wisconsin has 10. Rubio may help draw some Hispanic voters as well.

    Rant #3:

    Just have Mitt release his records when Obama releases his. Problem solved.
