Where is Democracy?
There are MORE people who believe in American Democracy than the Media would have you believe.
Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, while Donald Trump won the Electoral vote. (Yeah, yeah, Trump voters, I should Move On and get over it… To where)?
The mere fact that this man is President of The United States… What does that tell you about Democracy?
Not just for the Rich, the Privileged, or Republicans, who put Poor People down, while they condemn Entitlement Programs because they refuse to share the wealth with the rest of us; they make sure of that.
It would be cheaper for the Government to re-train America than to have people on Welfare and/or Food-stamps, but those in charge see it as a waste of taxpayer money.
This is why we have an Opioid/Heroin Epidemic in America. Jobless Americans who lost their jobs right before Obama took office, but couldn’t get another job because their Factory/Coal Mine/Company went Overseas.
Congress refused to approve the Infrastructure Jobs Act of 2010, now our Infrastructure is crumbling while Americans are suffering. Hell-bent on making sure Obama fails, they didn’t care that they hurt Hard-Working, Unemployed People by NOT providing alternate solutions to Jobs Lost!
The Result: Donald Trump!
Corporations also have a Social Responsibility to its Citizens, (considering the fact that the United States Government has been providing Corporate Welfare Subsidiaries & Tax Breaks since the 1980s).
Instead they have betrayed us all!
Funny how that Trickle Down, Never really trickled (back) down to the citizens like Republicans promised — EVER!
This Tax Plan, and the Man standing behind it (lies) when he’s promising a Big, Fat Christmas Bonus to ALL Americans…
That Bonus is: Your Taxes GO UP!
If you think doubling the EIC-Earned Income Credit from $1000 to $2000 is a big deal, do the Math: You get the (full) EIC only if you earn less than $27,000/year. By the time you reach $40K you only get the Child Tax Credit.
By the time you reach $80K even that is phased out. Anything over $100K = Zero! Doubling your personal exemption from $12,000 to $24,000 sounds great, but they’re TAKING AWAY your Dependent Exemptions, which is worth an extra $4050 per Dependent (including yourself), keeping your “Total Tax” higher, so it doesn’t give you ANY Extra benefit at all!
It’s all smoke and mirror B.S.!
And yet, you “still” want to believe in Him — Give Trump a chance to succeed??? Okay. What else will it take to prove to You Donald J. Trump is NOT on your side?
Real Democracy, (to me), looks like Fairness and Equality that should be Divided Among ALL Americans…
Otherwise, there would be NO Extreme Wealth Gap where 70% of U.S. Citizens make under $100K/year, only 20% fall within $250K-$5 Million.
The rest — The over Five Million Crowd — Pay “Zero” in Taxes because they have enough loopholes to exploit.
They DIDN’T get rid of those! If anything, they Expanded them, like the Estate Tax that will save Trumps’ family over One-Billion ($1,000,000,000) Dollars alone.
Oh, and guess how they’re paying for Corporate Tax Cuts —
With your Medicaid/Medicare and Social Security Benefits!
