A letter from an old friend(He did not do well in History class)


I've seen this before but it's worth reading again...
And let's not forget the respect that Bill Clinton showed to his position in the Oval Office (no pun intended).

Subject: Interesting info that everyone needs to know before you vote

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent..... these are

the facts .

Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008

Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500

Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500

Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750

Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000

Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750

Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

If you want to know just how effective the mainstream media is, it is

amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush

is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If any

democrat is elected, ALL of them say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts

and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't

wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman;

you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.

Your Social Security

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones)

didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and

show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it

doesn't matter whether you are Democrat of Republican. Facts are


Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA)

Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400

Of their annual Incomes into the Program,

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program

would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year,

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent "Trust

Fund" rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only

Be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other

Government program, and, 5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would

never be taxed as income.

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a

Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are

Getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to "put

away" -- you may be interested in the following:


Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent

"Trust Fund" and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and



Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social

Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.


Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the "tie-breaking"

Deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US


Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to



A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive

Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them,

Even though they never paid a dime into it!

-------------- -------------------------- ------------------------------

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn

around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security


And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted

And maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of

what isn't so.

But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.



A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong

enough to take everything you have. -Thomas Jefferson

The Response:

OOOO! So insightful. Lets add up the cost of those administrations just accepting those faulty numbers. Taxes for your grandchildren under Clinton -1.7 trillion. Taxes for your grandchildren under the disasterpresident +4 trillion and counting(we still have the drunken sailor in the disasterwhitehouse).
An article from the evil media before the disasterpresident got in the decider seat......

"Today's good news is a result of hard-won economic choices that put our people first. That strategy has created the most prosperous economy in generations."

President Bill Clinton
Thursday, October 28, 1999

Today, at the White House, President Clinton announced that the Office of Management and Budget and the Department of the Treasury have released figures showing the largest budget surplus and the largest pay-down of debt in history The President urged Congress to keep our nation on course by passing his budget plan that protects Social Security, pays down the debt, and meets the nation's priorities in the areas of education, health care, crime, and the environment.

Clinton-Gore Economic Plan Is Working. In 1993, President Clinton put in place a three-part economic strategy of fiscal discipline, investing in people, and opening markets abroad. Today's figures provide even more evidence that the Administration's strategy is working:

The Largest Surplus in History:

* The $123 billion surplus in 1999 is the largest dollar surplus in history, even after adjusting for inflation;
* The surplus, expected to be about 1.4% of GDP, is the largest surplus as a share of the economy since 1951;
* 1999 is the second year in a row of surplus, marking the first back-to-back surpluses since 1956-57;
* This is the first time in U.S. history that we've experienced seven years in a row of fiscal improvement.

The Largest Debt Reduction in History:

* Over the last two years, America has paid down $140 billion in public debt, the largest debt pay-down ever;
* The debt held by the public is $1.7 trillion lower than was projected when President Clinton took office;
* As a result, in 1999 alone, interest payments on the debt were $91 billion lower than projected.

What Debt Reduction Means for Americans. Paying down the debt means:

* Lower interest rates cut mortgage payments by $2,000 for families with a $100,000 mortgage;
* Lower interest rates cut car payments by $200 for families with a car loan;
* Lower interest rates cut student loan payments by $200 for a person with a typical student loan;
* Businesses have more funds for productive investment;
* Rising investment has contributed to an increase in productivity.

President's Budget Pays off Debt in 15 Years. Under President Clinton's budget plan, the publicly held debt would be paid off by 2015, resulting in:

* elimination of interest payments on the debt;
* more funds available for increased Social Security and Medicare costs for baby boomers;
* more funds available for investment;
* lower interest rates;
* increased worker productivity and income.

Urging Congress to Stay with What Works. President Clinton warned that proposals by Congressional Republicans for irresponsible tax cuts, spending the Social Security surplus, and across-the-board spending cuts would threaten our continued prosperity. The President urged Congress to keep America on this course of progress by passing his budget plan, which pays down the debt, protects Social Security, strengthens and modernizes Medicare, and invests in national priorities like education, health care, public safety, and the environment.

Pull your head out of your ass and look at the real history taking place around you. Unfortunately, for the people to follow propaganda such as this letter, they dont understand that they become part of the propaganda machine. Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were the only Presidents in the last 35 years to have budget surpluses in their administrations. I think that qualifies as fiscal responsibility........

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

Can you say Saddam Hussein and Al Queda in the same sentence really fast one hundred times kiddies.......
