“We Have Plenty Of Money If We Just Loot More People”

The words came from Democratic Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota:

“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it.”

You couldn’t ask for a clearer portrayal of the ethics of plunder. “We” are the government and “we” are not broke because all the government needs to do is to take money from other people.

Ellison was advocating for his “Inclusive Prosperity Act.” He explained,

“The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”

The looting mechanism proposed in the “Inclusive Prosperity Act” is a sales tax on every sale/purchase of a stock, bond, or derivative. This would arguably be destructive to the economy, but I’ll leave that argument to the side.

Instead, let me ask, if everything turned out as rosy as Ellison pretends, would we be better off?

Ellison claims his new tax would rake in $300 billion a year. I have no idea how realistic his assumptions are. Is he assuming that there would be no reduction in sales of stocks, bonds, or derivatives? Whatever. Pretend he is right and we get $300 billion a year coming into the government.

What does he want to do with it? The Bill itself says the money will be used to

“fund international sustainable prosperity programs such as health care investments, AIDS treatment, research and prevention programs, climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts by developing countries, and international assistance.”

I’m not going to address the value of these goals, or if they are based on hallucinations, in some cases, or not. We don’t need to go into all that. The essential point here is that Ellison is questing for more government spending. The best you can say about him is that he doesn’t admit that he wants to increase the national deficit.

But what was that deficit? For 2012 the national deficit was over a Trillion dollars for the fourth year in a row. So the man who is telling us that “we have plenty of money,” even if we assume he really can get all the revue he claims he can get, year after year, is powerless. $300 billion wouldn’t even cover a third of the national deficit if we didn’t spend it on anything else.

So, even by these wildly optimistc claims, we are still just a larger version of Detroit heading toward inevitable collapse and bankruptcy.

Ellison would loot more people to simply make our financial situation even less safe. He is living in a dream world.

    Government is a sword, a gun, a force. Government’s cannot do charity. Charity is the word in the Bible translating the Greek word AGAPI, which, in turn is the word the writers of the Bible coined for UNCONDITIONAL love. The governments steal money from the people to fund largesse given out to people we do not desire to give to along with mandates, strings, CONDITIONS and overt and covert demands for political remunerations. God does not get His praise for doing good through the hands of His servants, nor the servants the rewards for their good works. This is why God is PO’ed when a king in 1 Samuel 8:15-17 makes slaves from middle class farmers and middle class ranchers when the king takes but ten percent from them of their increase. 1 Cor. 7:20-24 tells us as Christians that we are NOT to be servants of men when we are the servants of God. Do you not know that this is God’s threshhold of slavery when we give ten percent of our increase to God to demonstrate that we are servants of God? No wonder when governments seek the mastery over the people by demanding that above 9.99 percent from the people, Jesus, the God who talked to Samuel in Chapter 8 of 1 Samuel, tells us to pay ONLY to Caesar that which is his (or up to 9.99 percent) and to God which is His
    (ten percent and beyond).

        #1 He is Muslim, they are enemies of this country. We should outlaw any religion that has in their doctrine to kill another human being if they don’t agree with you.
        #2 He is a Dumb-o-crat, The Haves are always called on to bail-out the have-nots. It’s not fair, is their mantra
        #3 He got elected by the infiltration of Muslims in Michigian
        #4 He thinks government should be bigger than the people
        #5 He is probably a backer of the UN’s Agenda 21, thus we feed the world.
        #6 He just an A** Hole

      • Mike Travis

        BJ, you need to understand he is not doing drugs but is following what the satanic koran commands which is to make everyone submit to islam. Do NOT confuse his actions with those of a typical liberal. They are FAR worse.

        I’m with you Deb! He should be the first one looted. Take all of his money and all that he earns for the next 15 years and give it to the IRS. This guy is looney tuned.

        Should Ellison, or any other Muslim creep, try to lighten my wallet I’m likely to give them a new part in their hair. Whether they have any or not.

      • John Williams

        I’ll tell you where these nut-jobs come from ; the same State that elected Jesse Ventura as Governor , and Al Franken as Senator ! There must be a defective gene pool in that State ; they have the distinction of electing the first Muslim to Congress . They must be very embarrassed by their choices ; or else they are just plain nuts !

      • http://lastresistance Rich Lind

        John Williams: you couriously forgot the biggest nut job of all, Michelle Bachman

      • Steve Powers

        I’m commenting as a MN Sixth District resident. Yes, Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district!

        As a resident of MN, I am extremely embarrassed by the fact that Al Franken, Amy Klobushar, and KIETH ELLISON have somehow pulled enough of these bleeding-heart, anti-USA, poor excuses for human beings together to vote them into an office that is supposed to represent the whole state of Minnesota.

        If the “wonderful” Hubert H. Humphrey wouldn’t have accomplished the melding of the Democrat Party and the Farm-Labor Party, most of the Democrats would never have gotten an office representing MN. They NEEDED those farmers and miners to get the majority here.

        I am EXTREMELY proud that Michele Bachmann is the representative of my district. I will support any future plans of hers, whether it be retirement, MN governor, or potus. I don’t care who Rance Priebus believes is “electable”. All I know, is that Rep. Bachmann keeps her integrity and honor no matter what stumblings she may have. Lobbyists that have a leftist agenda know better than to waste time trying to turn her. If you think I’m making this up, look it up for yourself. Her voting record is quite open to anyone that is not to lazy to look it up.

        The liberals hate an educated voter. So, if you want to piss off the liberals, do your own research. If you want to stay a liberal, stay ignorant.

      • Mike Lopez

        The governments spends money,,where should not be spent,and money countries are helped ,and money of these helps goos to corrupted person pockets,in 3rd World countries,and the bigest helps,in billons of money and weapons are going to Israel,from american governments,and giant companies,like philip Morris and other of Jewish zionist capital,and in the wars of Afghanistan and Iraq,billions of USD were spent ,which caused heavy economic problems,and the experts say that the way in which was taken the decission was not logic 100%,because whom won from these work,were giant companies that produce weapons,and that companies friends of Cheyny and Ramsfield and president Bush ,that received big volume contrats in Iraq and Afganistan,while the blood of american soldierss and Asian Citizens and soldiers,was one of the tools of these companies and secretaries of the states..

    • ChristCrusader

      Furthermore, it seems anathema for God to bless those whom He will bless, then have government take from them and give to people who would curse God and His ways, if they bother to acknowledge Him at all. Christians receive anything they have as a gracious blessing from God. The gov’t is laundering money for the unGodly by taking from God’s blessings and redistributing to those who’d curse Him. Christians should be charitable, but taxation is not charity; it’s mandatory and therefore theft redistributed. Christians should have the ability to give and help with discernment without rewarding/enabling/supporting unGodliness. People are not having to connect with or be accountable to each other or to God, instead to just look to the inefficient, expensive, middle-man government. It’s tough to dot he charity work ourselves and to be charitable, but we’re called to do it, not hire some monstrous, man made 3rd party entity being the gov’t. There’s no incentive.

      • Mike Lopez

        Jesus and all the messengers were sent by the God,as a Mercy from him to all Mankind,and all the true believers in The God,and thebtue believers should be universal in thought,because Adam is the Father of all,and then all humans are brothers,,and our Lord the God of all recomends to us,not to hear to Satan’s evil inspirations,and the governments members and ministers should be believers,fearing theGod, were corrupted ,then they will never work for the good of humanity,nor for the peoples of their own country or comunity..
        God calls to the Peace,Licit wealth,and good deeds,and to Mercy between men,
        that is one of the main aspects of the true religion,of the God,and I don’t know if have to wait till Jesus is sent newly,so all the governors and bed persons and diverted believers,may believe and and apply the best recomended by our Lord..

    • Hystorical

      I don’t see how Ellison is adding to national deficit and thus frame is mischaracterization of Ellison’s proposal in that debate. Let the economist debate his estimates, but it appears he has strong backers, leading advocate is a former Goldman Sachs excecutive. Bottom line is country had it before, other countries have it in place today and he’s looking for ideas to find health and human services. I’d like to see funds support Financial Regulation already in place, and to stop more fraud and abuse by financial institution. We need to trust them again. The problem I have with Ellison proposal is it sounds punitive in nature. I’d like the money spent to promote the best SEC in the world. Heck, the tabacco tax pays for early childhood services. Let’s model closer to that.

      • George Eagle

        I have a better idea – why don’t you give your life savings to the muzzie Ellison then go stand in front of as train,eh.

      • Ron Alford

        Instead of hystorical, you meant hysterical.

      • Publius

        Dear Hystorical / Hysterical,

        Perhaps you should leave the thinking to human beings. Obviously, you cannot comprehend common sense, nor can you even produce a complete sentence, much less a rational argument. I like George Eagle’s response to you…

      • Publius

        Dear Hystorical / Hysterical,
        Obviously you cannot even produce a simple sentence, not make a rational argument. And your childish line of reasoning is just that… childish and socialistic. You go against every precept upon which this once-great nation was founded. I like George Eagle’s reply…

      • DMJ

        How does Ellison’s proposal conform to the Constitution exactly? Please be specific and name what part of the Constitution allows this tax and for the money to be spent the way he is proposing.

      • dexter60

        Why not just tax the biggest thing there is, that is not still not taxed ?; already… The political machines and the sitting politicians.
        Those that have stolen trillions have not paid taxes since they took office.
        Why not a 150% tax on their frauds?

        In the manwhile, this guy Ellison needs his own wealth redistributed back to the taxpayers before is head is planted in the ground like the turnip it is.

      • jsccats

        Why should we waste a cent of anyone’s money on the crap this creep is planning to spend it on????? Enough of this idiotic redistribution bovine excrement!

      • Marc101

        What about government fraud and abuse? Government employees retiring after only 25 years of service, getting 50% pensions for life, opting out of Social Security in order to pay LESS in taxes, getting Blue Cross/Blue Shield as a primary insurance, instead of Medicare, for life. Law enforcement retire after 20 years, get 70% pensions, opt out of Social Security, and get Blue Cross/Blue Shield, instead of Medicare, for life.

        The same government employees who sing the praises of Social Security, Medicare, and Healthcare Reform Act, then OPT OUT, because they want no part of those programs because they are not as good as pensions and Blue Cross/Blue Shield (75% of which is paid for by the…tax payer).

        Rep. Ellison says that $300 billion annually, paid for by investors, retirement funds, colleges and universities, and municipal, state, county, and federal governments for their pension investments, will make up for this:
        http://www.usdebtclock.org/?
        It is mathematically impossible. Besides, he plans to spend all of that revenue on…FOREIGN AID, not domestic programs:
        “fund international sustainable prosperity programs such as health care investments, AIDS treatment, research and prevention programs, climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts by developing countries, and international assistance.”
        First he says we need a new tax to fund welfare programs in the U.S., and then he says that the revenue from this tax will go to…foreign aid; Three Card Monte on a national level.

      How in the world did this muslim every get elected? He is nothing but an agent of islam set out to upset our way of life. He is a cancer in congress and should be removed, by force if necessary. It is time for Americans to wake up to the dangers of islam and the radical and moderates that live in our country.

      This guy is just another evil towelhead. When Obama was just a senator he pushed congress to allow Ellison to be sworn in on the Koran. That should have been enough warning that Obama is just another slimy raghead and can’t be trusted..

      • Paul

        If you knew just a little more about the swearing in process for House members you would know that Congressman Ellison was not sworn in using a Quran.
        Congressmen are sworn in en masse. They raise their right hand and swear to uphold the Constitution, etc. The left hand in on no book of any kind.
        Later publicity photos post swearing in often show them using a Bible or in Congressman Ellison’s case a Quran.
        Before commenting it is good to know what you are commenting upon.

        why You despise the last complete book by Your Lord,if You don’t believe that,I recomend to study better the in Bible,to know where the Prophet Mohamed,who was sent to all mankind and not only to the Arabs,and his first followers were the poor slaves,and the rich forty persons didn’t accept to believe in the One God for 13 years,in which He wanted from them only to say One God as The Lord ordered him,and they promised to say and give 1000 words,but the One God,they didn’t say..and ask the the wise Jews about him in the Torah,and they tell about him if they were true Jews,because in the hebreu language psalms # 15:….the Prophet and King David say the the name of the prophet is Mohamadine,talking about this prophet that was mentioned in the Deutronomy 18:18 and other places in the Old tesment,and the Lord asks the people of the book,(Jews & Chritians ) to follow the analphapatic prophet who they can find him mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel:
        ) Thus We have appointed you a middle nation, that ye may be witnesses against mankind, and that the messenger may be a witness against you. And We appointed the qiblah which ye formerly observed only that We might know him who followeth the messenger, from him who turneth on his heels. In truth it was a hard (test) save for those whom Allah guided. But it was not Allah’s purpose that your faith should be in vain, for Allah is Full of Pity, Merciful towards mankind. (143) We have seen the turning of thy face to heaven (for guidance, O Muhammad). And now verily We shall make thee turn (in prayer) toward a qiblah which is dear to thee. So turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship, and ye (O Muslims), wheresoever ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it. Lo! Those who have received the Scripture know that (this revelation) is the Truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do. (144) And even if thou broughtest unto those who have received the Scripture all kinds of portents, they would not follow thy qiblah, nor canst thou be a follower of their qiblah; nor are some of them followers of the qiblah of others. And if thou shouldst follow their desires after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, then surely wert thou of the evil-doers. (145) Those unto whom We gave the Scripture(Jews&Christians) recognise (this revelation) as they recognise their sons. But lo! a party of them knowingly conceal the truth. (146) It is the Truth from thy Lord (O Muhammad), so be not thou of those who waver. (147) And each one hath a goal toward which he turneth; so vie with one another in good works. Wheresoever ye may be, Allah will bring you all together. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

      He’s of the same ilk as Obama. After reading this idiotic suggestion, I can see why we are in such trouble. On top of it, the money is not to clean up the debt, but to send it overseas. Really?

      He makes a statement that there’s lots of money is just the government doesn’t have it. That is a lie! I say that because in America the government is THE PEOPLE’s elected officials can only do what we the people allow them to do.

      First of all the elected officials no longer seem to understand who they work for. Also unfortunately the people who elected the dirty diaper head make up a group of people who are functionally illiterate when it comes to America, they are lazy and would prefer to sit on the couch drink beer, do drugs, and watch stupid reality shows on the screen of their stolen widescreen television. The logical question is what is the rest of the country going to do about it!

      It wasn’t for the hard-working American the same low lives that elected this administration would starve to death. They do a lot of work for themselves they probably lucky if they know how to wipe their own rear ends. Just imagine for once what would happen if every worker in the United States, with the exception of emergency services, just stopped doing their jobs for one week. No trucks move, no planes fly no trains run. Stop the Subways, buses and taxis. No garbage pickup , no store clerks , no one to unload ships in the harbor everything stops for 7 to 10 days. Send this message to Washington plain and clear you people work for us we are not your slaves were not going to do your dirty work and you will do as we tell you to do.

We can’t let this happen. Our voice, thru our voting process, is all the American people have and obama/holder/CONGRESS is allowing massive fraud at the polls. This is where it all begins. This is what we have to concentrate on. We need to vote in an AMERICAN who respects our Country and Constitution, her Rule of Law and all her goodness. We need to spread our belief and trust in God, our God, not the devil thru allah and teach our kids morals, spirituality and discipline.

        When you say there are over 70 confessed communists in congress, all Democrats, to whom are you referring? From where did that bit of information come?
        Well it came from a campaign speech made by Rep. Allen West of FL. He didn’t say they were confessed communists. He was referring to a comment by the Communist Party that the Congressional Progressive Caucus was their allies. Yet none of them have confessed to being a communist and most have denied the allegation.
        So, are there over 70 confessed communists in the congress? NO! Are there any confessed communists in the congress? None I am aware of.
        So before commenting shouldn’t you have some real basis, not just gossip, for your comment?

  • armydadtexas1

    I would expect something this stupid and gutless from a Minnesota, Islamo-Fascist. Ellison, not only are you a pathetic, THUG. You are a coward. You want to come dance, bring it on. Bring your islamo-pukes along with you. You want to threaten America>>>BRING IT THE HELL ON PUNK.
    Minnesota: I thought once Jesse Ventura departed from the Governor’s house, you would have had enough of side show circus clowns. Now you vote in an Islamo- Fascist and a dried up comedian thug. This is what you really want to represent Minnesota. I was born there, but I sho-nuff am glad we got the hell out of there early in life.
    I guess all the bars on every corner in Minnesota may explain this lack of judgment. If not, then the only other conclusion would be that voters in Minnesota are either morons or self loathing, far left, radical extremist, democ-RATS i.e. STUPID

    Sane minds will prevail in the House of Representatives to deny this fascist his legislation. There are too many core conservatives there to be deceived. Rest somewhat easy fellow patriots, this one is DOA.

    This incident is more motivation to us to get involved. Support and elect core conservatives to local positions, then to regional, and to state. We can then be prepared when federal elections come around. We do not need RINOs, CINOs, Democrat Lite, or anything akin to them. We need true core conservatives elected and locally we are pursuing this and accomplishing this. May your efforts out there be met with such success!

    I am a die hard Republican conservative and this guy is just touching on the plan I have advocated for over 30 years! All transactions per day in the USA amount to a minimum of one trillion dollars, that includes grocerys, cars, housing, stocks, bonds etc! A simple 1% tax on all transactions in this country whether domestic of foreign, would generate ample funds to run the government and the best part is that we would no longer need the IRS, plus the 1% gaff is so small no one would object to it! Another major benefit is fairness! All people that spend money in this country support it, from the poorest to the richest! we all pay the same rate whether we buy a learjet or a used car!

    • Sandy Trank

      That is correct but it won’t go to benefit America, it will go overseas or for another vacation

    • http://none Nancy

      Yours is the best rebuttal to this *argument*. The IRS should be dissolved which would save eliminate the ease of abuse. If we just had a flat tax it would be the most fair way to collect taxes. No special shelters, everyone pays their fair share because wealthy buy more and larger than to middle and lower classes. This is a no brainer, but the government doesn’t wish to *solve* problems they only wish to control the populace. THAT is the Elephant in the room.

    • John Williams

      Now that’s an idea worth considering , Gerald , but that’s not what Ellison and his ilk are after ; they want wealth redistribution . What he’s advocating for is the same thing that Obama wants – wealth redistribution – and nothing less will satisfy them ! They believe that Capitalism is evil , and a major cause of all of society’s ills ! Ellison wants to punish the wealthy ; raising money for his Liberal causes is just one more excuse for soaking the rich !

    • Mr Bob

      The primary problem with this system is that intermediate business inputs would be taxed multiple times, what economists call “tax pyramiding. This repeated taxing at each link in the production chain results in punitively high effective tax rates on complex products produced in stages by more than one company, and low rates on products with few production stages or that are produced entirely in-house.” This creates massive discrimination in the tax code, with some products largely unscathed (particularly imports), and other items taxed into oblivion

    The Govt does NOT have the constitutional power to run any program in the fulfillment of their duties! their ONLY duty…Mr Ellison, is to SUPPORT and DEFND” the constitution of the U.S.A. It is NOT to run any programs or take in money! The govt makes no money and ONLY spends what is taken form the people thru taxes! Everything the govt takes charge of anything, it turns to $#^&>>>period! Every program instituted turns to cow crap and evertually goes broke! We are not in Iraq or iran or any muslim country…we are in our country! Mt last question is: How could this man, who was ONCE a Baptist, convert to Islam…that sounds NUTS, or maybe you have to be to be a Muslim! Don’t tell me mr. Ellison…I’ll tell you…the people of this nation don’t need anymore muslim thinking people like you in this nation…take a hike to S.A.!!! P.S. of all the %& nations who are Muslim governed (That where Mr. O got the thought that there were 57 states…he is a Muslim) all of them are a 3rd world nation…so draw the conclusion)

    “A constitution defines and limits the powers of the government it creates. It therefore follows, as a natural and also a logical result, that the governmental exercise of any power not authorized by the constitution is an assumed power, and therefore illegal.”
    –Thomas Paine, Constitutions, Governments, and Charters, 1805

    “If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.”

    This guy is the poster child of why we have to vote all these fools out of Washington and quickly. They never have any plans to solve the problems they’ve created by the over the top spending and ever increasing entitlements. There are more people receiving entitlements than there are working and those of us who work for a living are fed up. Our so-called representatives were elected to serve this great nation and we the people. They have exorbitant salaries (which they vote for themselves – and we need to change that process); Cadillac health plans; Cadillac pension plans; lavish expense accounts, they’re overstaffed, etc. all at the taxpayer expense. The refuse to cut their expenses and entitlements but keep the rhetoric that taxes have to be increased on every one else so they can’t continue with their abhorant and unacceptable behavior. I have worked two jobs for most of my life and I’m getting beyond tired to hearing all these idiots demand what they think we should do while they continue to spend out tax dollars. No one is helping the middle class – look at food and gas prices. The reality is that no one in Washington cares. They were elected to serve the people and all they do is screw the people. Their only concern is partisan politics, their own special interests and re-elections which is why they won’t cut entitlements because they get the votes of those who continue to live off the rest of us who work for a living. Term limits must happen – the day of the career politician must be over.

Our unions say so, it’s ours and we want it now…$$” Nice eh? See what working for government has become? Go look at all the debt mounting. Governments all across Canada, the US… have been on a hiring binge, a spending spree for decades now. Government = police, fire, hospitals, teachers, lawyers…= high salaries, bonuses, pensions, perks… all out of control for decades now = More and more debt…making the connection yet?

    Decades of overspending…more and more debt, see what these people are doing to future generations?

    Record personal debt in Canada and the US…something has to give.

    Record low interest rates…for now…

    When and how does it end? Greece, Ireland, Californian, Wisconsin, Detroit, Kebec…all technically bankrupt…a real mess in the making and no one in government or the mainstream media (CBC, CTV…here in Canada) is dealing with it. Nice eh?

    “Conservatives” have allowed all of these expensive, divisive liberal polices, and departments to remain. How come?

    Solution? Well only one folks – We need a new party, a new leader willing to deal with the facts, the truth for a change. We need a real fiscally conservative, common sense leader/party…. Things need to be cut, reduced and eliminated in all government. Government is too big, intrusive, and they are accumulating too much debt, year after year after year. That’s right let’s get cutting non essential services, expensive waste, bilingualism, multiculturalism, phony rights departments…the charter, CBC, all this green nonsense, bring in a government salary cap, a hiring freeze, reduce pensions… all sorts of big government BS. The future is at stake here and no one is willing to deal with this, how sad, how pathetic, all of you clowns in government and mainstream media.

    The real issue that no-one is talking about is the private sector versus government sector. Government hiring, spending and debt is out of control and has been for decades. This is the great divide in Canada and its getting worse yearly.

They just voted themselves out of ObamaCare!!! Isn’t that just lovely? No special privledges PERIOD!!! We don’t need 99% of the laws already on the books, all we ever needed was what the founding fathers started with. Congressmen were not meant to make it a career.

If it weren’t for our having a Muslim President (that still boggles my mind that our citizens would be so stupid to vote for a Muslim, who says he’s American), they wouldn’t be talking so stupid. Our President thinks that way…why do we think they are speaking out. Has anyone checked to see if this guy is a Citizen?

    We need the richer liberals to get hit hard and get fed up with the liberals who are living off of the system and all the other wasteful spending that goes on in DC and the states. –However, that would mean conservatives would get hit too.

    The answer is for conservatives to get their finances in order, pay off bills and learn to live on less. Then when all you-know-what hits the fan (because it is going to happen), conservatives will survive while the liberals will get hit hard.

    Then the liberals in government offices will be forced to do something right for a “change.”

  • Don DeHoff

    History reveals that every country has the rich and the poor—it as been that way since day one. Yes, Government can take our money (if we let them) but again history reveals that stolen money does not get redistributed to the poor. Instead the “lucky” poor get to live somewhat like cattle in a feed-lot or like “chickens in a coop”, the unlucky get to “shift for themselves”—-”alms for the poor!”—again, just look at the 3rd world countries, and for that matter, also India. Anytime an individual or a small group think they know what is best for the masses, history reveals sooner or later their is a rebellion. And, those who willingly or unwillingly accept “handouts” from an individual or a handful of fanatics , soon are headed towards a very restrictive life (FEMA camps?). The only solution is back to “We the People!”—-if we are to live a life of misery, let it be as a result of our mistakes as voting citizens, not as a result of “giving in” to a handful of NWO or Muslim fanatics. Once citizens give up their rights to “reach for the sky” and become obedient “sheep”, we will become charter members of the “third-world”.

    I was watching the news this evening as they showed pictures and video of the Mars Rover and all the magnificent things that’s been accomplished. Wonderful!

    Then I thought about the Muslims, still living in the 7th century and I almost cried. Yeah, I was laughing so hard thinking about those idiots that I almost cried.

    • Mr Bob

      I do the same thing when I look at Christians living in the 14th century

    George Bush and Clinton brought all these muslims into Minnesota.

    You forget that Ellison is looking at this through islamic muslim eyes where the mosques and inman`s have the power to do what they claim old mohammad said or wants or demands from the serfs. You know like that other socialist democrat in the white house!

    You forget that Ellison is looking at this through islamic muslim eyes where the mosques and inman`s have the power to do what they claim old mohammad said or wants or demands from the serfs. You know like that other socialist democrat in the white house! Ellison should not even be allowed to hold office he can not serve two masters either he serve the islam or he honors our Constitution, islam does not allow him to honor or Constitution. If you do not believe me read it for your self, it will scare the hell out of any truly free American!

  • Berlin Veteran

    If you asked this idiot where he got this idea from he would say something like, “I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you!” They all think we are idiots and so far we have proven them right. If we ever get a real clue to the fact, they are the criminal element that has taken our Constitution and twisted it beyond recognition, we might be able to take back control and put them in prison for sedition and treason to the Constitution.

  • Bob

    I don’t think he is speaking as a Muslim. His comments are pure Democrat comments and speak volumes of what the Democrat party is all about when it comes to raising taxes and redistributing other people’s money.

    • Mr Bob

      For your info, tax rates are near historic lows!

  • http://lastresistance.com George Morrison

    I’ll bet Mr Ellison and the big O got together on this nonsense if these things are taxed on their initial sale it will change the amount of stocks purchased espically for folks with limited funds we are already taxed on the gains on these stocks but what happens when they go into the tank and you have to sell at a loss the tax added to the purchase just makes the loss greater and then the only ones who gain anything is you guessed it the stinking federal government…..this plan stinks just like everything else they have been up to it stinks

  • Larry Pierson

    Has anyone heard of Feldman’s curve? It shows tax revenue vs. tax rate. At zero percent tax rate, there is no tax revenue, and at 100% tax rate, again this no revenue since no one wants to work if they can’t keep any of it. Somewhere in between is the maximum revenue that can be generated from a society.

    Every tax increase has resulted in a net reduction in tax revenue, and every tax cut has resulted in a net increase in tax revenue. Clearly our tax rates indicate we are taking too much revenue from our economy for taxes.

  • Phillip Lake

    Where the hell do these idiots (liberal socialists and Mooslems) get the idea that middle income families are so wealthy that we should share the wealth? We live day to day and watch every penny and there is very little left over to invest or enjoy. I have worked hard (back breaking, sweaty type hard) my entire life. I paid SS taxes, State and local taxes, we spent our money on good health insurance companies, I spent 23 years in the military because I loved this country. Now at 65 I am on SSDI and my wife is still working at a day care wiping the butts of other peoples kids because we need the money. NOW – the LBGT expects us to pay for their health care on an illness that is entirely their own fault. Then our beloved (bs) President and his asshole mooslem brothers want to take more taxes out of income we have already paid on once. Then the other useless people in this country, that intentionally rely on the government because they think we owe it to them, expect us to turn over what few pennies we have left each month. They expect us to take care of them so they can go on making bastard babies and never get up off their butts to take care of themselves. Yea Mr. Al Sharpton, Mr. Obama, Mrs. Clinton, Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Reid and the rest of you moslem/communist jerks think we should be taxed more???? ONLY WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER Mr. Mooslem Ellison. You people are so ate up with the dumb ass that it is almost laughable – ALMOST.

    Minnesota has Mark Richie for attorney general.
    Mark was instrumental in placing Al Franken in the US senate also.

    I think George W. Bush should hold his hand and take walk in the ruins of Detroit. They both believe in One World Order, only one believes it will only be Muslims. It is my dream they are both wrong. and they will enjoy the destruction of their own lives for bringing this to Americans.

  • T. Jefferson

    Hey Minnesota! He’s your problem. Get rid of him.

    This idiot must have been educated in a muslim school. He has no concept of the background or laws of the United States. He should be recalled by MN, and given a one way ticket to a country in which he would be appreciated. It rook some really stupid people to elect this moron.

  • john

    Ellison,, you idiot,, you blithering uneducated idiot! Its what you did with the monies before that make you unable to do anything good with any other money; no matter where it comes from. Wise people know that in a capitalistic society, wealth can be grown and increased. In a system where the government exists to only remove wealth from the producers to give to takers for votes, the wealth rapidly disappears and everything collapses. Do people like you and Obama have no ability to reason this out,, or do you think you will be forever in a position to say who gets the wealth? OK, be honest with us,, those arent really your ideas anyway are they?,,,,,,the men behind the curtain tell you and Obama what to say and do dont they?

  • Dave

    The People of Minnesota better wake up to what this Non American is doing to your State and America. We do not need these kind of threats from any American Politician. He should be arrested and Prosecuted for Treason for the things he is saying to the American People. If Americans don’t wake the Hell up and soon it is going to get very Bloody on our streets. God Help us if Americans don’t Wake Up to the Real World out there today.

    Where do these idiots come from? Is there no common sense left in this world? He wants to take more of our money to give it away internationally? WTH? Is it some sort of crazy prank? How do people even think up this nonsense. I need a good cold shower…I’ve gotten myself all heated up and Texas is hot enough already.

    Heaven help us all.

  • http://AOL Kay

    sounds coming from a natural born crook. Ellison needs to have his income checked out by the IRS and let ‘s see how much he gives to the have nots. Incidentally, some people are poor because they just don’t want to get an education and don’t want to work. We call them leeches.

  • Pete0097

    Typical democrat. They always think that when they raise a special tax that people will just keep going the same and the tax dollars will just keep coming in. Wrongo, this tax will just hurt companies that don’t pay dividends. The ones that do pay quarterly dividends will do alright, but the ones that don’t will suffer big time. People will will just hold their stocks and collect dividends. The penny day traders will go away. The dems never think of consequences.

  • Steve Powers

    “Patience is a virtue.” “Good things come to those who wait.” Etc…

    It just dawned on me that the patriots of the United States of America have to be patient, and wait for the right time to remove these threats of freedom. Hitler got into power because people became impatient with the rivaling parties. They decided that they needed a strong leader to return Germany to its former glory. What they really needed was to use their freedoms to make an improvement of their own, no matter how small or big, using their each capabilities and talents.
    We are not in the same boat as the post WWI Germans, but it is still a lesson in patience, none the less.

    As a former boy scout, there is one thing that I have tried to carry with me 36 years later, “Always be prepared”. I think this is the most important thing to go along with patience. The true muslims will lose their cool if we just continue to nip away at some of their sources, but don’t instigate a full confrontation. Once they do, they will remove all doubt about Islam being a “peaceful religion”. If we are prepared, the world will then find out why our country’s fathers were inspired to write the Second Amendment.

  • Christopher Popham Smith

    Well, Keith Ellison is of course a very typical Muslim, as they (Islamists)
    have been looting governments and countries for thousands of years.
    After all, that’s how Mohammed got his start in the religion business…..
    by marauding, killing and looting.
    Actually, we need more lunatics like Ellison in Congress so that the true nature
    of the liberal left, Muslim-infestation of this once great nation can be exposed.
    Good luck, America.

  • DonL

    Did you miss the fact that he says the use of this money will be for “international” projects. The confication of more of our hard earned money will not benefit any of us. It will benefit the international one world agenda which will be to our detriment.
    The confiscated money will go to our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
    What an incredible breach of his oath of office. OH WAIT!
    He is a muslim and for a muslim it is OK to lie and sware to an oath falsely declaring you will perform the oath since that oath was made to us non-muslims.
    This is another wake up call which tells us that no muslim should ever be allowed to hold office in the US because he is not, in his own mind, bound by his oath of office.
    No muslim can truthfully state that he will uphold the constitution and defend it agains all enemies both foreign and domestic since he is an enemy himself.

    The punk-^ss, little effeminate Obaa-baa -ma and the ole commie hag, “Hillory the Pillory” should both be made to face charges of treason! I’ll bet most of you out there – speaking of another subject – don’t know how the Muslim Army terrorist has been livilng as royalty as he has been awaiting his trial for four years: He has been allowed to collect his full salary; he had a special room made for him SUPPOSEDLY for medical purposes; he is permitted three daily helicopter rides, with an escorted one, to and from the courtroom; he has a special trailer at the court sight and besides all this, his expenses for defending himself are paid while he is allowed to call those he had shot, wounded and maimed to be put on the witness stand by him! All this while the Muslim-Marxist jihadist and his punk-^ss, useful idiot Army general classify this as “work place violence” rather than an act of terror which stops the victims from receiving medals and just compensation for combat! All of you are there are fools if you refuse to acknowlrdge the truth and that truth, as I have been saying since day one is this: Obaa-baa-ma is a Muslim-Marxist jihadist, NWO implant that his mission is destroying Amerca and replacing it with AMERIKA and lastly, the little effeminate punk-^ss is afraid to talk to Putin man to man about Snowden because he know’s Putin would bitch slap his little effeminate punk-^ss and “Sputin’ ” him out!

  • Keith Luxton

    We should remove this problem once and for all. Michigan has been invaded and overcome by foreign nationals. They do not obey or recognize the US Governments, not Constitution.
    Remember these people are not Americans, they are Muslims, which is an Ideological cult, not a religion. We should therefore do as would be done in Saudi Arabia or any other Muslim country, Send in Armored brigades of troops supported by special forces operatives, Round them up, ship them back to the FEMA camps so thoughtfully prepared for us by Obama. Have them debrainwashed.
    Somehow I do not think this would fly, seeing the Chief Mulla of Islam in America is also the Caliph in charge of the United Socialist states of Amerika.

  • Bill

    This is utter nonsense. Any applied tax will continue to increase. They always do. Most taxes that are levied for a specific purpose normally, over time, are no longer applied for that purpose, but end up in the General Fund. Besides, all of his proposed uses for this tax are “Pie-In-The-Sky” programs that are intended for international use. In other words, we’ll be throwing more money at corrupt and useless United Nations schemes, with no benefit for the US taxpayer. It will harm investments as well. He doesn’t say so much, but it is the same mentality that goes after Wall Street time and again. Make no mistake, it isn’t just the rich and famous that are invested in “Wall Street”, it is the regular folks who have IRA’s and 401K retirement accounts invested in the stock markets. And we all know what the likes of Nancy Pelosi have in mind for our retirement funds. They want to manage our funds in the same responsible way they have managed Social Security.

  • Patricia

    Ellison is a creepy Muslim and i keep wondering which Bible he laid his hand on to take the sacred Oath everyone in this Administration seems to forget. Was it the Koran?
    Ellison is just following his Muslim Leaders stench in taking from earners to “spread the wealth”. Muslim’s do NOT belong in the US Congress or in any other government job. The Koran is a false religion and Mohammad is a false idol.
    The US is allowing infidels inside the US. Dragging false idols into the US is anathema to the Judeo-Christian Religion and is an affront to all Christians.

  • Big Dog 1702

    We need to Impeach Obama the Muslim NOW !!! We need to get out of the UN and send them some place other then the USA, how about Afghanistan , Iraq or Iran would be a good place for the UN new home. Then we need to get rid of ALL of the Muslims in the United States because they are at war with the USA. They can leave the USA or we can ship them out in a body bag.!!! We need to stop sending money to other countrys and start taking care of our own . WE the people need to take back our country NOW !!! God bless you and God bless the GREAT country of The United States of America.

    • Hank

      I remember the times when there were people who sympathized with Adolf Hitler when he was on the rise in Europe. You had good National Social People who were no danger and bad ones who were a danger to National Security.
      Punishing all Muslims by deporting them is of course not the right thing to do, but allowing them to get a foothold into our government is the most stupid thing we can allow yet, we are doing so.
      Get rid of the ones who openly are advocating the demise of this once Great Country and educate the people who voted this idiot into office and keep an eye on them making sure they are not continuing to undermine the security of The United States o America.

      • Mike Lopez

        if Yoiu are a believer submitted to the God, then You are a muslim, because Islam is not a nationality,or race,or colorcast,and inspite the Islam religion was received and transmitted by arabs first,to all lands and countries,as a debt and obligation by the God to them, and as a right to all the people on the Earth ,to know the last message of the Monotheism religions, to let the before scriptures receiver correct what the hands of mankind changed and falsified in the Bible ,
        and a speach of the Prop0het says: who hears about me and the message of God sent with me to all the worlds,and don’t try to know this mesage and follow my message,He will be judged and punishid by his and my Lord..,and more than 70% of muslims are not arabs..,and the best privilege is to be a submitted free slave to the God

    Ellison is a muslim, he took his oath of office on Thomas Jefferson’s koran, not realizing that Jefferson had the koran to learn what motivated his enemies. The Barbary Coast pirates were slaughtering our merchant ships at the time.

    Muslims in America, I believe, will do anything to help destroy our economy even further. The ones in political office can’t be trusted, their loyalties lie with islam, not the U.S., nor do they even like our way of life. They want to replace the Constitution with sharia law, dominating and subjugating every American man, woman, and child. Ellison should be deported along with all his muslim brotherhood cronies.

    The best thing we can do is liquidate all our investments into cash and keep it home so this pig can’t get his hands on our hard earned money again.

    sems the number or the amout in trillons is unbelievable,only to let fellows say ugly words against the congregist,and Islam,because they are are very innocent and have pure heart,then they believe these comments,because they love their country,and are jelous ,
    But why they don’t mention the trillions of Dollars granted to Israel,and why the american citizans,and residents in US,should pay a lot of tax to Israel,which is a racist country,and hate the christians,and the Christ,and if they keep some ancient christian places,is to receive tourists and money
