I had an email conversation recently with a friend, more of an acquaintance actually, but someone I truly respect and admire. the tone went sour quite quickly and it made me a bit surprised and a bit sad.

 

The Back Story:

If I had to label myself I would be a:  Fiscally Conservative, Libertarian, Capitalistic, Free Market kinda guy. I believe people work for what they have. I believe the Federal Government should defend the nation with a strong military, defend the borders from invasion, mitigate interstate disputes, and build cool monuments to American that we can be proud.  Beyond that, the Federal Politician is to follow the demands of their constituents, not the other way around. The people who elect him or her should have their voice heard and followed up upon, period.  The Politicians would need to provide a transparent view of all tax revenues and how those revenues are being spent. I think any major allocation should be approved by the people. The politicians need to be held to the fire to provide justification for every item they spend the public’s money on.

My friend is a very caring bright guy. He believes most conservatives are a bit self serving I suspect. (I agree here, but what other way is there? Everyone is self serving.) He believes the elected officials should have autonomy to do good for the people. He believes in freedom of choice, but he believes also that the government has the right to control certain aspects of life, more forced involvement.

So here is where I stand:

Abortion: I think abortion is killing. I think conception equals life and that abortion kills that human life. But, I don’t believe the government can control what a woman does with her body. It hurts me to think I am supporting abortion, which I am not, but I don’t want Big Brother to force a woman to see that abortion is killing. This is a tough one for me, but that is where I stand. I would put a limit on first trimester abortions and outlaw as murder, any abortion after the first trimester.

Gays: Non-issue, what two adult people decide to do of their own free will is none of anyone else’s concern.  There are so many issues in the world that demand more attention than this. Why do people need to control others to such an extent? It never works.  I’m a Christian, a tolerant, loving Christian that believes in redemption and that Jesus loves us all and he wants people to decide for themselves to walk a righteous path: But they must decide themselves.

Muslims: I know a few Muslims that are some of the kindest, most honest and truly great people I’ve met, and I’ve met some scary Christians, and vice-versa: Scary Muslims and Good Christians. Even though the Koran pushes conquering all other religions, most Muslims don’t feel this way I would expect.  In America we follow Constitutional Law, everyone. If you break the law you pay the penalty, no exceptions for any religion.

Illegal Aliens: Simple, the Federal government is to protect the borders. If someone comes over illegally, then that’s illegal, duh.

Taxes: Everyone, I mean EVERYONE above the poverty line needs to pay a set tax. Corporations need to pay their fair share, percentage of profits after expenses. There must be a way to do this.

Back to Democrats and Republicans.  I think they are basically the same, the politicians that is. They all have egos, all want to be in charge, all stuff their cabinets and committees based on favor and debts owed and not on merit. So therefore, they are basically the same.

 

So, my friend out there, I think we are not too far off. Hopefully we can find a common ground at our level, if not, how will this nation ever find common ground in Washington DC?

United States Soon to have Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the World

Hi Friends,

I came across this article in the www.AmericansForTaxReform.com website by way of the www.DrudgReport.com  website. I just had to copy and paste it into my blog.  I don’t usually do this but I am including for attribution and linkbacks so I think it’s fine with all.

One Month to Go Until We Have the World’s Highest Corporate Tax Rate

Just one month from today, the United States will have the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, surpassing Japan.

CLICK HERE to join the fight to stop Obama’s out of control massive tax and spend agenda.

Just one month from today, Japan will lower their corporate income tax rate from 39.5 to 35 percent.  When they do so, the United States will officially have the dubious distinction of possessing the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, a federal/state integrated rate of 39.2 percent.

To put that in perspective, the average in the developed world (OECD) is only 25 percent.  Our six major trading partners–Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, and France–will all have a lower rate than we will have.  As a result, capital and jobs will continue to flow overseas, rather than staying here to create jobs, increase wages, fund pensions, invest in new business, or grow nest eggs.

Country Corporate Income Tax Rate
United States 39.2%
OECD Average 25%
Canada 27.6%
Mexico 30%
Japan 35%
Germany 30.2%
France 34.4%

President Obama last month proposed a plan to raise net taxes, but in the process lower the U.S. corporate rate to about 32 percent.  That simply isn’t worth it.  In exchange for a jobs-killing net tax hike, the Obama plan would still leave us with a tax rate higher than the OECD average, and higher than all our major trading partners except Japan and France.  No thanks, Mr. President.

Richard Uzelac Marketing, if there was such a thing, would emphasize content first, not sparkle. Most older SEO techniques were just that “techniques”. The major search engines have grown wiser in the past couple of years and more than ever: Original Content is King.
I’ll be back soon with more on Richard Uzelac Marketing and Internet Strategy advice.
