TAX is killing the American dreamWritten by United Citizens of America
Some say that our politicians are in same neighborhood in their thoughts as our founding fathers. I don't know if I would go so far as say, "they are in same neighborhood". However, they are still Americans - which is a very good thing. But, they are far too removed from lives of ordinary person to be considered neighborly.
You have to remember that primary reason our nationís founders went to war was due to increasing monarchy taxation. Our founders felt that tax burden was stifling colonial-mans ability to make a better life for themselves and their families. Their thinking was - why should they bust their backs to make monarchy wealthier? The original taxation guidelines that our founders initiated for our nation states:
"No captivation or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken". (Meaning that they cannot tax citizens without a citizen census being taken first.)
This law held for 201 years until our modern politicians felt they knew better than our founders did. Coincidently, it is roughly around this timeframe that government spending sharply increased along with our nationís debt. In 1977, our modern day politicians instituted following amendment.
Fahrenheit 9/11Written by Rocky Ramsey
The movie begins by reexamining 2000 election for millionth time. The thing that bothers me most about 2000 election is that Alec Baldwin didn't leave country like he promised after George Bush became President. Doesn't anyone keep a promise anymore?
After seeing interviews with Michael Moore and reading information in press, I wasn't surprised by Bush bashing in beginning of movie. After watching half an hour of it, I was almost expecting Michael to interview Pope and have him say that George Bush was Anti-Christ.
Then movie cuts to a peaceful, wonderful Utopia -- Baghdad. Through complete and utter omission of heinous acts committed by Saddam, Michael seems to approve of Saddam's brutal regime.
Michael shows children playing in a playground and smiling along with weddings and happy people in Baghdad. He gives impression that everything would've been fantastic, if "evil" Americans hadn't started bombing city.
