is that the current tax system is a mess. But there are things that would help.
Unfortunately, tax-loving and brutal despot Hillary Clinton will be elected because of the tax-loving and corrupt buffoon (and nascent despot) Trump. AND Trump will make it so the Rs lose the Senate and perhaps even the House. He is a one-man wrecking crew. Therefore, no change in the tax code for you! But of course we are all groaning under the load…
Remember, the original American Revolution started over confiscatory and unfair taxes. Now I sure hope something like that doesn’t happen to us again (please don’t let that happen in MY days), but one should be VERY careful when playing with fire.
But Trump himself doesn’t care about this kind of stuff one bit. His is not a mind that takes naturally to logic or consistency. And he would never risk himself, anyway; he has no deeply-held beliefs to sacrifice for. He deals only in mindless and splenetic outbursts. He is insulated by wealth. He has burly hired men with guns that constantly see to his safety–it’s what they are paid to do. It is now and always has been all about him. If you believe his populist schtick you are a bloomin’ fool! He embodies splenetic incontinence, unimpeded by the thought process. Maybe I am the one who is a fool for thinking that there was no way that people would fall for that crap. Even the very learned and wise are fooled at times.
See, when you talk with Trumpkins it always comes back to a very unflattering anger. It always comes back to them feeling taken advantage of. It always comes down to an irrational lust for revenge. And let’s not be confused, THAT is what is fueling the Trump rise. THAT is the currency Trump deals in. It is NOT wisdom. It is NOT reason. It is pure spleen. and that is not at all praiseworthy.
It’s really too bad. Things were very much starting to look promising before Trump and the Trumpkins pooped in the soup. They have foolishly chosen to vent their spleen rather than to logically act. And now we ALL get to share in their stupidity and ruin. <sigh> I, for one, welcome my Trump-enabled Hillary overlord…
For me it’s a combination of intense sadness and angry disbelief. Let’s be clear: you might see a brief economic uptick because Obama is leaving, but it is certainly NOT because his economic policies ever made sense–people are just glad he’s going, hope springs eternal, and there is a TON of pent-up demand.
Kiss SCOTUS goodbye, folks! Hope you just LOVE illegal immigration, a crappy economy, abortion, and confiscatory taxes. Because that’s what you’re going to get! YOU may well deserve it. But I sure as Heck don’t. Good job, Trumpkins! Good job. You got pwned. <shakes head sadly> But don’t lie and say that you were not warned. You were.
