Slavery – It’s Economic in Today’s World

Written by United Citizens of America

Slavery has taken a new dimension in our country. People are no longer owned and driven to perform tasks for no pay. Today, slavery is to our governments, with very little chance of ever breakingrepparttar financial bondage.

On average, Americans now spend more time working to pay their taxes than they spend working to provide food, clothing, and shelter combined. According torepparttar 125952 Tax Foundation,repparttar 125953 typical middle-income taxpayer in 2003 had to work until April 19 just cover their federal and state income taxes. That’s almost a third ofrepparttar 125954 year, 109 days, or 2 hours and 23 minutes of each eight hours in earnings. Now add on your local taxation fees and your homeowner tax. Each American is working almost half a year just to pay their annual tax burden. Close to half of your 8 hour, workday is going directly to pay your tax requirements. In comparison, in 1930, it only took 30 seconds of an individuals daily work time to cover their tax burden.

Many people discussrepparttar 125955 “good ’ol days” of American life, and how today’s generation has it tougher than our Grandparents did. If you look at old unplanned pictures ofrepparttar 125956 30’s, 40’s and 50’s,repparttar 125957 people going to work have smiles on their faces. I commute everyday, and you rarely see people smiling. Work is no longer a pleasure, but a necessity to survive. Losing your job in today’s market is a virtual death sentence for you and your family’s way of life. The burden onrepparttar 125958 “providers” is staggering.

These daily pressures are surely being noticed and absorbed by our children. Youth crime is skyrocketing. Drug use is still very prevalent in our youth, and moving towardrepparttar 125959 harder “mind altering” substances. Violence and violent actions are getting more severe in our younger generation. Our children are angry, nervous and stressed, and with less parental support due to working requirements, our children are losing control, lashing out at each other, authority figures, and anything else that may get in their way.

Obese Government

Written by United Citizens of America

Very few people (including members of Congress) actually grasprepparttar numbers involved inrepparttar 125951 federal budget.

The total net "economy" ofrepparttar 125952 United States is about $9.25 trillion. That representsrepparttar 125953 total production, sales, purchase and consumption inrepparttar 125954 United States in 2003, according to estimates provided byrepparttar 125955 CIA.

Government isrepparttar 125956 single biggest industry inrepparttar 125957 United States, both federal andrepparttar 125958 combined state governments.

The business ofrepparttar 125959 United States isn't business - it is legislation. And quite frankly, they do a terrible job at it.

There is more money wasted each year by our federal government alone to fund a second Defense Department or to cut personal taxes by 25 percent acrossrepparttar 125960 board.

In addition, hundreds of billions of dollars are given to corporations by way of contracts, which could be reclaimed by forcing our government institutions to implement fair contracting practices.

The Congressional Budget Office has issued warnings aboutrepparttar 125961 dangers that lie ahead if our politicians continue to spend in this manner. Unfortunately, nobody is listening.

Who are we hurting by this outrageous spending? We are hurting our children, our grandchildren and who knows how many future generations of Americans. And for what? So our politicians can go home in an election year and brag about how they have been able to bring homerepparttar 125962 bacon. Or so we can be surerepparttar 125963 special interests are happy.
