Corruption in Government is About to Sink
Bob Dylan had some lyrics that fit the current political sea ripple turning into a tidal wave. “The Times They are a Changin’.” Kentucky elected its first Republican Governor in decades. The Democrats were running that state and the state was in the bag for Hillary. But not anymore.
The biggest issue that moved the electorate was the impact of Obamacare. The other big impact of this election is that this Kentuckian is loved by the Tea Party and is actually a libertarian who is bent on reducing the size of Government. Kim Davis, in Kentucky, was put in jail for refusing to issue marriage certificates based on her religious beliefs. The issue was decided by the Supreme Court but Kim didn’t give in. And the populace in Kentucky moved to support her. Kentucky is the ripple and when the national elections go down, states are going to flip and the new President will be Republican. The number of Republican Senators will increase and so will the Republicans in the House. That will be the tidal wave.
If I was working at the IRS, I would seriously be looking for a new job. If I make tons of money preparing taxes for businesses, the elite, the rich, and just about every other American, I would be looking for another job. Everyone at the department of education should be looking for another job because the states are going to take back their own education system. The EPA is also on the chopping block. The Department of Commerce is done because it is a useless government entity. There are probably a hundred more agencies that are not worth the budget money they eat up and waste.
If these cuts get on a roll, they will also trickle down to the states. So national wide and state wide cuts will put American back on a positive capitalistic track. The biggest losers outside the government will be the Unions who will have fewer politicians they can buy with their 96% contribution rate of Democrats. Even the global warming craze will crumble because it has always been a Democrat boondoggle to fill their pockets with kickbacks into their reelection coffers from the subsidies they approved for green companies trying to sell windfarms and solar panels.
Cases in point. When a green company builds a windfarm, they get to write off the expense in 5 years on a farm that is projected to last 30 yrs. If I own a piece of rental property, I can depreciate it over 30 years, not 5. The companies get a huge tax break up front. Then the owners of these farms sell them after 5 years to other investors or power companies at a discount actually earning themselves a hefty profit because of the tax breaks on their other income. But then the farms actually depreciate in 15-20 years based on the need to replace huge, expensive windfarm infrastructure. Those Wind turbines don’t last 30 years. They need continuous inspections and maintenance, and will need to be replaced in 10 to 15 years due to excessive wear and tear. The turbines, at that time, will cost more because of inflation. The Democrat politicians get a kickback from those companies who gain the windfall; pun intended. The global warming issue has been around since 1970, 45 years ago. And as of this date, we only get less than 3% of our entire energy consumption from Wind and Solar.
There is a reason politicians go to Washington and stay forever. They get there with relatively modest wealth and leave multimillionaires. The hay day is about to come crashing down. The American public has had enough. They do not get a piece of the American pie because the politicians and big government get the whole pie leaving us with half a slice. Then the pie gets bigger but the slice we get actually shrinks to a quarter of a larger pie. Interesting how that works.
The politicians and glutinous government agencies should invest in life boats because the tidal wave is building in strength exponentially and is going to sink their corruptive ships.
