We hear the term that so and so is not presidential and therefore should not be elected. We also hear that certain people are not paying their fair share in taxes. What exactly is “presidential” and what is “fair”.
Brennan to Trump: 'Clean up your act' and 'try to act presidential'. What we are not told is what is presidential. Is it presidential for instance to receive sexual favors from an intern in the Oval Office?
Is it presidential to go around Europe apologizing for the success of the capitalist system of the United States? Is it presidential to bow to Muslim leaders of other countries? Is it presidential to denounce local police officers not having the facts of the situation? Is it presidential to include a group of sworn haters of local police into a personal meeting in the White House? Is it presidential to promote people within the executive branch after it is proven they have lied to congress? Is it presidential to declare over dozens of times that a certain act would be unconstitutional and then perform the act anyway? Is it presidential to sign an agreement guaranteeing cash and the ability to develop nuclear arms with a country who has stated it is their goal to destroy the United States? Yes, Mr. Brennan, exactly what is presidential.
The American people are constantly being told that certain segments of the American population are not paying their fair share of taxes – they are not sharing enough of their wealth. The natural question to be asked is “please tell us, just exactly what would be fair,” and of course we are never given a number. In 2015, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined, but we were still told that that is not fair. In many instances, those who are supposedly not paying their fair share are paying in excess of 50% of their incomes when federal, state, and local taxes are calculated, but apparently that is not fair.
So just exactly what is fair we ask. I am aware of only one collectivist who actually stated a number and said that was fair and that was Franklin Roosevelt. FDR produced an executive order in which he stated that any taxable income over $25,000 (that is 1940’s dollars) was to be confiscated at the rate of 100%. FDR went on to say that that was fair.
The guru of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, Karl Marx, said that all income should be confiscated by the government and then redistributed based on need with need being defined by the elite class of Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). This appears to be the real goal of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party of today. After all, they are following the other dictates of Marx, including Marx’s call to abolish all long-standing principles, all morality, and all religion.
When you Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) use terms like “presidential” or “fair,” please define what you mean. So far everything you have done and everything you are doing is following the direct commands of your guru, Karl Marx. It would seem, without explanation and definition, you really intend to continue to follow the dictates of Karl Marx until the United States has been fundamentally transformed into the Marxist totalitarian state as promised by Comrade Obama.
