Welcome to the Party of Government, the Only Political Party in the USA

You think you have a choice, Democrat or Republican. They are entirely different, are they not? Democrats want to raise government revenue by raising tax rates, thus increasing tax revenue by targeting the most prosperous. They want to redistribute these funds back into the USA in the form of services like education, social services, corporate bailouts, infrastructure, the war in Afghanistan, and other projects. This is completely different from Republicans. The GOP wants to raise taxes by lowering tax rates, broadening the tax base, and growing the economy. Republicans want to redistribute these funds back into the USA in the form of services like education, social services, corporate bailouts, infrastructure, wars, and other projects. Democrats want to focus on controlling the way you do business, and how you spend your money by regulating most industries. Republicans focus on passing laws focused on controlling your personal lives, such as laws against placing unauthorized substances in your bodies. Both parties support the taking of control over your lives from you and granting it to us at the government. Both parties support the taking of increasing amounts of money from you people for our purposes; they only differ on the method. A vote for one of the two parties is a vote for bigger, stronger government. You only get to choose the method of growth, or the method by which we further erode your freedoms.

Consider one of your recent presidential elections. The fact that McCain and Obama had remarkably similar Senate voting records is a strong indicator of the similarities between each party’s nominee. Any review of recent history will indicate that Obama’s behavior in office increasingly resembles that of his predecessor. Do you really think McCain would have been all that different? McCain and Obama’s primary difference began and ended in their rhetoric. 

What this boils down to is each party selling you Americans different justifications to reach the same end. Our end. That way people of different political views will vote for and enthusiastically support causes that benefit us. It is a rather brilliant strategy. The USSR attempted to run elections within an overtly single party state, and they failed. There's an old corporate trick of marketing the same product under different brand names to appeal to different markets; GM has mastered this and simultaneously capitalized on several different consumer bases. The not-so-obvious-merging-of-the-two-parties method we at the US Federal Government are currently employing is working even better; we in Government have made both political parties our two primary marketing arms, harnessing support from persons of all different views and focusing it on us, entirely for our greater empowerment.  You have no real choice among candidates other than to support our agenda at the Government, and you people are too stupid to realize it.  Keep on fighting with those in the other party; it keeps you people motivated and ultimately fighting for us, and donate your time and $ to us.

You Americans are left with just one party; the party of government. The Government Party supports an ever increasing Federal Government in terms of function, size, revenue, and power exercised over the US civilian population. We may say otherwise, but actions speak louder than words.

Now you know why nothing ever changes no matter who you people elect. Our man always wins.

A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy — "A republic," replied the Doctor, "if you can keep it."

We Put You Right Back Into The Caste System Your Ancestors Fled

Your ascendants left England to, among other reasons, escape the caste system. Your ascendants were locked into a system in which there was no upward mobility. They were stuck as peasants in a system that considered them inferior and did not recognize their rights as human beings, but instead assigned them limited privileges based on their low caste. The severity of a crime was determined by not just by the crime itself, but by the difference in caste between the offender and offended. Guess what; we put you back into a caste system here in the USA, and you didn’t even notice.
You don’t believe me? Consider assault. 

Assault is a crime. We at the government usually choose to enforce laws against assaulting US citizens, although assault against a person higher up in the caste system is prosecuted much more aggressively. Commit assault against a police officer or other government employee, and we will show you exactly how aggressively we enforce the law and prosecute those who commit crimes against us. Our new royalty, those persons holding or who have held high public offices, often enjoy the protection of law enforcement personnel who exist entirely to protect their cast. Look up the many laws against assaulting government employees and see how broadly “assault” is defined.

Now, consider assault against a citizen by a police officer. The vast majority of police brutality cases are never prosecuted because the prosecution, or government, tends to favor its own government people which includes police officers. We have a legal system in place which exempts police officers from what would normally be considered an unprovoked violent assault. “Roughing up” a suspect during an arrest is even encouraged at times. We at the government tend to be one big happy family, and family is always loyal to family.

The caste system in the USA is as follows:

1st caste: Politicians and political appointees. They enjoy the
highest degree of legal protection and privilege for life.

2nd caste: Government employees. They generally live
comfortable lives with secure lifetime income at the
expense of the 3rd caste. They also enjoy significant
legal protection.

3rd caste: US private citizens. This is the labor caste. Their work
is responsible for all economic productivity. Every other caste is
dependent on the taxes extorted from the private citizens.  We 
permit them to keep a portion of their income to keep them 
motivated to work hard for us.

4th caste: Inmates. This consists almost entirely of members
of the 3rd caste who were demoted by members of the 2nd caste
acting under the laws made by the 1st caste.

You have been conditioned by us to accept the above terms. Imagine how you would react to seeing a fleeing person suspected of theft tackled on pavement and placed forcefully under arrest. Now imagine your reaction if the arresting person was a Wal-Mart employee tackling and restraining someone he thought was a shop lifter. Your government given bias allows the police officer to “do his job,” but you would never allow one of your own to do the same. You hardly blink an eye when the first caste is permitted to bypass our TSA screening process, or mismanage vast sums of public funds without consequence. Welcome to the caste system. You know your place and you fit right in.
Did you know your president is now permitted to assassinate human beings at will? That’s right, the days of the King’s ability to arbitrarily kill you are back. He is free to order the deaths of US Citizens at his sole discretion, without a conviction, due process, or even an accusation. Even us down here in the 2nd caste are free to violently beat our 3rd caste wives with minimal interference. Your constitution cannot protect you.

History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy... These measures never fail to create great and violent jealousies and animosities between the people favored and the people oppressed; whence a total separation of affections, interests, political obligations, and all manner of connections, by which the whole state is weakened.
- Benjamin Franklin, Emblematical Representations, Circa 1774

We Federal Employees Are Worth Double What You Are Worth

It is true, we Federal Employees are worth much more than you, and that is why you pay us TWO TIMES what you private sector government subjects are paid. Numbers don’t lie. Take a look at our superior and well earned benefits and retirement packages. The laws we have made cause you to be irrevocably obligated to pay us for the invaluable services we perform, or else. 

Whether you admit it or not, that is what motivates you subjugated people in the "land of the free" to pay us. The truth may be that the only real service we sell you is allowing you to keep whatever portion of your income we permit, your belongings, and not confining you to a federal prison. You people consider our services so invaluable that most of you believe you owe us a debt of gratitude and loyalty on top of your hard earned money. You even pay us through wage withholding, allowing us to take your money before you ever receive it. Wage withholding effectively promotes us above all your other financial priorities, even above feeding you own children. We appreciate the gratitude you express to us for the services we provide, it’s what keeps us in power over you. We keep you working hard for us.

A rigid economy of the public contributions and absolute interdiction of all useless expenses will go far towards keeping the government honest and unoppressive.
- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Lafayette, 1823

We Are Exempt From Your Morality

Knock, knock, knock on your front door (should we decide to give you the courtesy of a knock), then we break down the door and come in like a sudden flood, using lethal force on anyone who resists, often killing the family pet should he dare to bark at us. Using physical force and the threat of violence we quickly subdue the occupants of the house and take them off to jail.

Ordinary citizens are not permitted by law or the culture to resort to violence in response to a non violent act, but you have no problem with us doing so. We have slowly increased this practice over the decades, effectively conditioning you to reject the idea that our thuggish behavior is thuggish. We have your respect and gratitude as we drag a person suspected of placing a substance in his body that we do not approve of off to jail. 

You recently elected a man who helped create a law that now forces every American resident to become a customer of the Medical Insurance industry, or carry a government health insurance plan. This law is such that you must choose between being a customer of one of the governments chosen business, or paying heavy fines and potentially going to prison. Judging by the lack of resistance from you, you have no problem with us fining and imprisoning you for not purchasing services as we direct. 

Imagine if a satellite television provider tried this. Imagine if they fined, and, in severe cases kidnapped and placed in their private jail persons who refused to sign up for their service. You people would consider this a very serious crime, and beg us to rescue you, but when we do exactly the same to you you don’t give it a second thought. Many of you even cheer us on.

You are ok accepting abuses like this from us at the government. You have been conditioned to believe that normal morality which forbids violence, extortion, and requires general respect for another adults ability to make their own decisions does not apply to us. You frown heavily on the participant in a conflict who is the first to sink so low as to become violent, unless that first person is one of us. You have no problem with our violent responses to non violent crimes in which our victims are in no way a threat to public safety, and you do not even allow your own citizens the right to resist us. The exemption from ordinary right vs. wrong moral judgments makes it so much easier to control you people in “the land of the free.”

"(terror means) killing and robbery and coercion by people who do not have state authority and go beyond national borders".

"Tax the Rich, Corporations, and ..." You people always fall for that one.

“The IRS is there to help us, it enables the government to give money to poor people who need it more than rich people and corporations.”

That’s right, go on believing that when we take your hard earned money it is just like donating to charity. You can sleep well believing that you are a good person for paying your "fair" share, for being good little Americans beaten into submission by IRS employees. Never mind the fact that Congress always allows sufficient loopholes for themselves and the rest of the super rich, effectively lowering or eliminating their taxes. Look the other way when we continue expanding the definition of "rich" to include more and more of you, until everybody with full time work is rich and forced to pay us as we deem appropriate. Never even consider that taxes actually cause much more harm than good to all economic classes; this is all just extremist propaganda.

According to Dr. Dale Jorgenson, chairman of the Harvard Economics Department, an average of 22 percent of the price of consumer goods and services represents the costs of federal taxes and tax compliance costs paid by producers and suppliers in the process of making the product. Ultimately these costs are passed on to and paid by the consumer in the form of higher prices. We know from basic economics that once a cost is removed industry wide, competition will push the price down by the amount of the removed cost in a very short time. The net result of eliminating federal taxes would be a nation wide across the board drop in consumer prices by about 22%. This would in effect give the poor a 22% raise, or more for those earning enough to pay income tax. 

What we have helped you forget is that there is only 1 taxpayer, the US economy. Taxing the economy, be it the rich, the corporations, or anybody else harms every member of that economy one way or another.

“But what about the government!?!?” you ask as we marvel at how well we trained you good little americans to look out for us. Even as we extort money from you to further fund our infringement of the freedoms you people fought for your concern is still for us. Like the woman who not only returns to, but defends her abusive "lover."

Without an individual or income tax or social security taxes the budget could be balanced with current revenue levels from other sources if the government were reduced in size to where it was in the 1970s. Current revenue from the gasoline, alcohol, tobacco taxes, and other sources would be enough to fund all federal services as they were in 1972 with a small surplus. Yes, 1972 was prior to the fall of the USSR. Subtract the mile high USSR induced portion of the defense budget and you just might account for inflation between 72 and the present.  If you leave social security in place you can fund government at roughly 1990 levels.  Don't worry, we in government will always ensure we take enough of your resources to continually increase the level of policing you people are subject to; we will never again give you the freedom you had in the 70's and 80's.

In addition, if the working poor were given the opportunity to opt out of social security, they would have an additional 6.2% in savings, increasing the total savings rate to 28%. Rest assured, we will do everything with the power we took from you to make sure you are never given the opportunity to vote for such Ron Paul types.

Know that Dr. Dale Jorgenson will be paying his “fair” share of income tax until the day he dies.

No, You Haven't Got a House

Homeownership, just pay off that mortgage and the house is all yours, right? Wrong. You will never be done paying because the house you call your home is not yours. 

If you must pay someone money on a regular basis to avoid being evicted from your home, are you truly a homeowner? What if that same organization that you pay money to under threat of eviction also controls your use of the property? What if they forbid you to run a store from your home, or allow a second family to move in, and enforce such with zoning laws? What if they also prevent you from making any significant modifications to the property without their written permission, in the form of PERmit requirements? Is the home really yours?

You are not able to add, subtract, or modify any structures on “your” property without permission from us in government. You cannot use the property for purposes we don't approve of. You must pay us money on a regular basis so we don't toss you and your family out of "your" home and onto the street. Does this sound like any common sense definition of the word ownership? You might hold legal title to the property, but do you really own it in the above circumstances?

What you have is in effect a never ending transferable lease. You Americans think you will someday own your homes in the land of the free. It is in this very land of the free that you don’t even realize what has happened. Your homes have been taken from you. Through a slow erosion of your property rights you have become tenants in your own homes, renting them from their confiscators and true owners, the states and local governments.

In spite of your Federal Constitutions 5th amendment we in government have effectively confiscated your homes and rented them back to you right here in the land of the free, and you didn't even notice!!  We deserve even more credit for pulling one over on you because this was the case WHILE we had you all riled up about resisting a Communist (read USSR) takeover!!  

You stupid little americans; you deserve to have lost your homes to us.  

Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.

Just The Way You Wanted It

It is a crime for you Americans to save what you earn. You must first and foremost pay us what we have decided you owe us. You must hand this money over before you buy food for your children, even before it arrives in your bank account. Your employer will cooperate with us to make sure you never get a chance to handle the money you owe us.

You people like it this way. You voted away your money when we promised you various benefits in return for your money. You never got these promises in writing, and the conditions were such that you had to keep paying us regardless of when, how, or even if the benefits are ever delivered to you. You signed away your right to withhold your tax payments under the above terms over and over again. You cannot even withhold your own money in protest, yet you keep working for us to get that little bit of your own money that we allow you to keep, that little commission we use to motivate you. Peaceful resistance is not possible for you; that’s the way you wanted it.

Are you enjoying your government benefits? Do you feel you are getting your moneys worth? Who cares? You sure don’t, and even if you did you would keep paying anyway. Either way, we get to keep your money and use it however we please. We’ve done quite well with it, by the way. As you can see here we are earning more than you with money we took from you. We deserve it.

I wish to thank you. You save us the trouble of invoicing you by filing out your form 1040 every year. It would be a lot of work for us, and we would have to use some of the money we take from you to accomplish this. Instead, you pay about $1,000 and 25 hours per person annually to take care of this for us, allowing us to focus our efforts on taking more of your money. With roughly 70,000 pages + Obamacare in all it is easy for you to make a mistake, and lucrative for us when you do. Our penalty rates are very high. In fact, they amount to usury, and if we had to follow state laws I have no doubt our penalties would be illegal in many States. We are the Federal government. We can do what we want.

“Indeed, in a free government almost all other rights would become worthless if the government possessed power over the private fortune of every citizen.”

Tea Party? HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Boston Tea Party was a protest of a consumption tax that applied only to 1 item that nobody needed. The men who carried out the “Tea Party” risked prison on order to protest this tax which they viewed as unjust.

Things like this don’t happen anymore. Today, if the Tea Partiers were to muster up enough courage to, say for example burn down an empty liquor store or two in protest of the federal alcohol and income tax, it would be big news. The American spirit that inspired the Boston Tea Party resides in exceedingly few Americans today, most of you are content to sit in your homes and watch television. You see, we have been conditioning you thru that same television to think a certain way, to accept our ideas, and think as we would like you to think. We took over public education in the early 70’s to get a head start, and eliminate the influence of the local communities on public schools. We taught you to be good little Americans while slowly removing civics, the bill of rights, etc. from the curriculum. Military intelligence calls this an IO, or Information Operations campaign. We use it on foreign populations to get them to accept US troops and the conditions we impose on them, and to direct their hostility towards those who oppose us. It works just as well on you people. 

We have you convinced that not paying taxes in a country born in a tax revolt is somehow shamefully unpatriotic. This is true even though most of you see that billions are, at best, misused, and, at worst, trillions are wasted. The fact that about one half of your hard earned income goes to us in government thru various forms of taxation would be abhorrent to the original Americans of the early 1800s. You Americans of the early 2000’s like it this way. You are happy when we imprison one of your own for attempting to keep more than his “fair share” of his own hard earned money. You voted for a man who forced you to either sign up for various corporate insurance programs or face heavy fines and possible prison, and you loved him. Of course if the local News Paper company was given the authority to fine, and even imprison people who were not subscribers you would be irate, and fiercely stand up for your rights and freedom against this injustice. When this same action is taken by us, the government, you may go so far as to express your disapproval to your neighbors but would never have the courage to actually stand up for yourselves. You will not even think to question why you allow us to take such liberties when dealing with you.

We have IOed you into a state of perceived helplessness – you feel as if you cannot possibly take care of yourself with out us stepping in and protecting you from your own bad judgment.

"... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

Lie to us, go to jail. We lie to you….NOTHING!!!!

The state of New Jersey knowingly published fraudulent financial statements in order to attract bond investors. Normally when we catch one of you producing misleading information in order to attract investment dollars (remember Enron, WorldCom, or Bernie Madoff?) we destroy them. You gratefully reward us with even more dependence and trust. This time, it was one of our own ripping you off. What did we at the Federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) do to the State of New Jersey? Virtually NOTHING. We did what amounts to NOTHING on your behalf. Not one person was indicted or even subject to disciplinary action by the SEC or the State of New Jersey. We did not fine them one single dollar. We did not require them to return one dime to the defrauded investors. We allow them to not only stay in business with no change to their oversight, but to SELL ADDITIONAL BONDS NOT 24 HOURS LATER!! Since we set this precedence, we thought we'd continue when another government did the same to your poor saps.  Guess what we're going to do to our buddies in Kansas? Look how often we go after you now, and you people still thing we work for you! Government first and foremost takes care of government.

We have revoked your Constitutional 5th amendment right against self incrimination when facing the IRS. Telling an IRS auditor that you have a right to not answer any questions about your tax situation will get you nowhere. "Innocent until proven guilty" does not apply to IRS audits. If you invoke the 5th amendment instead of proving your innocence, we simply assume guilt and send you a bill for the new assessment. We’re about to get a lot tougher. Lying to an IRS auditor can get you thrown in prison, but you must trust us to police ourselves when it comes to our own truthfulness. You will never be permitted to audit our financial statements, by the way.

US history is full of our lies; from the numerous treaties made to Native Americans, to promises to repay war bonds in gold, to detaining Japanese Americans in the 40’s. Imagine a person with a truthfulness record as bad as ours promising you some guarantee such as a retirement through Social Security. If you placed one ounce of trust in this person’s word concerning anything that mattered, a neutral observer would certainly consider your actions epically foolish. Where we win is in the fact that, despite our lies and abuses, we still have your trust. In fact many of you associate patriotism with loyalty to us at the government, motivating you to defend out actions with a religious fervor regardless of how hideous they may be.

We can, will, and do lie to you with few restrictions, but we imprisoned Martha Stewart for lying to us.  We reserve the right do the same to you.

All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.
- James Madison, speech at the Constitutional Convention, July 11, 1787
