The Death of the Republican Party

By Patrick Van Roy On November 13th, 2017

As I sit here I watch what truly could be the death knell of the Inside the beltway GOP those human pieces of flotsam that are the Country Club Elitist Poster Boys for Term Limits. The McCains, McConnells, and Collins the permanent politicians  who know better, but have never achieved a single political success.

It looks like they are going to pass a Tax Cut Bill that raises taxes on the Rich…. The upper 10% of earners pay 70% of the American Taxes. That is NONSENSE, and the only long term core piece of the Republican Platform has been and always will be Tax Cuts.

Wealth create’s jobs, over the past 40 yrs the left has crippled the wealth producing members of our society.  The GOP has always run on stopping and reversing that, now that they have the numbers to do it they do the opposite. Add on top of that the Senates provision that the Corporate rate of 20% is delayed a year…. Why? We need the influx now, not a year from now.

The problem these clowns have is by doing this they lose the support of the core of the people that come out and vote in every election and pull the ticket vote. They are panicked that Democrats won in Democrat areas and the result will be more primary challenges and less turnout on the right because of this tax pkg not less.

And that will be a good thing, there is a long list of these clowns that need to be removed.

  1. From the Congressional Research Service:

    “Analysis of such data suggests the reduction in the top tax rates have had little association with saving, investment, or productivity growth. However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution.”

    So cutting taxes for the richest in society does not increase growth. It does however increase inequality.

  2. Changing the devilishly complex federal tax code is hard.

    Taking away the deduction for local/state income tax would mean a tax increase for many ( not all ) in the middle class in states like CA, NY, NJ, PA.

    It has been well noted that the Republicans have a strategy that will target the blue states for increases.

    The removal of this deduction will not happen.

  3. Also considering that the first personal income tax was introduced in 1861 by Republican President Abraham Lincoln and Republican Senator William Fessenden. So the idea that the Republican Party have always had this one long term core goal of tax cuts is moronic.

  4. And this tax cut as proposed would totally blow up the debt, something that Republicans pretend to oppose.

  5. It is true that the upper 10% pay up to 70% of federal taxes. I’m not about to weep for them because it shows how much they make, not how targeted they are.

  6. Tax cuts for lower and middle class people will more likely lead to economic growth.

    The higher rate tax cut (Reaganomics) theory is that rich people paying less taxes will make more money and are then likely to invest in new economic projects or businesses. While the Congressional study found that there was a positive impact on investment by cutting the higher rate of income tax they also stated that they are not statistically significant (so a positive but very minor positive benefit).

    Cutting the lower rates of tax will put more money into the pockets of ordinary people who will then spend it, improving consumption spending which leads to growth.

    A loony myth of the Liberal Left.

    Tax Cuts increase revenue to the Federal Govt. every time. And cuts have absolutely nothing to do with debt or deficits. Both are a product of SPENDING….. period end of story nothing else.

  8. “The McCains, McConnells, and Collins the permanent politicians who know better, but have never achieved a single political success.”

    Actually, they have had tremendous political success serving the needs of the Donor class in Washington.
    They are bought and paid for by Globalist lobbyists and they are doing a good job delivering for them, pushing back the Trump populist message.

    They don’t want business coming back to America. They don’t want the tax reform that will bring business back. They represent Globalists. They want cheap labor in 3rd world countries and an open market place in America.

  9. Tax Cuts increase revenue to the Federal Govt. every time.

    Then according to you, the best way to increase federal tax revenue would be to lower the personal/corporate income tax rate to zero!

    Bush One called this ” voodoo economics “, and he was right.

  10. Ok you are saying that people who don’t want to cut taxes for the richest in society are serving the elitists but the people who want to cut taxes for the richest in society are serving the ordinary people?

    I ask this with all due respect but are you high?

  11. Seamus, follow the lobbyists’ money.

  12. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-wildfire-tax-deduction-20171107-story.html

    The House Republican tax bill would eliminate the deduction for personal losses from wildfires, earthquakes and other natural disasters, but keep the break for victims of the recent severe hurricanes.

    There is an intentional unfairness in the Republican plan – and blue state California is being targeted for the most harsh treatment, while red Florida, Louisiana, Alabama are not.

    Wonder why?

  13. Donald Trump’s campaign contributions are quite similar in industry to John McCain’s for example. Retired people, Investment funds, Real Estate firms, Lawyers etc… feature heavily in both so I don’t see how lobbyists are influencing McCain but not Trump.

  14. They want cheap labor in 3rd world countries and an open market place in America.

    You mean like having your clothing business operation based in Asia and selling to the American market?

  15. The McCains, McConnells, and Collins……

    Bad idea (explitive removed) 😉

  16. I would delete that comment, and give Allan a time out

  19. If you wish to continue to seek to harm the site, which is what you are doing, I can’t stop you.

  20. You virtue-signalling twat

    That’s you banjaxed now Phantom.

    Virtue – signalling is the new dhimmi.

  21. It’s great how they are all ” on message ” on the arguments, and on the trendy new words.

  22. Not sure if you are capable of reflection Allan but to the extent David has time and inclination to moderate he’s shown an extraordinary tolerance towards you (in my opinion a misguided tolerance). I don’t think you are repaying that courtesy with the language used.

  23. Hand me some smelling salts – I have the vapors

  25. lol.

    but first, covfefe!

  26. Suppose it beats having to answer difficult questions anyway Patty:

    They want cheap labor in 3rd world countries and an open market place in America.

    You mean like having your clothing business operation based in Asia and selling to the American market?

  27. Patty.

    Happy Christmas. 😀

  28. Allan my thread my rules.

    You can’t use the N word. Use it again I will block you on my threads and personally petition David to put you in time out.

  29. Well, it’s sure lucky Tarantino doesn’t frequent ATW then.

  30. lol.

    Merry Christmas!!

    Paul: that’s not a difficult question but rather a stupid question — making a living in a globalist world does not eliminate support for populist policies

  31. free speech for “me” but not for thee?

  32. Bravo Patrick

  33. More oppression of old whitey.

  34. ATW seems to be morphing into a collection of undiscerning snowflakes…. but then I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t been checking in much of late.

  35. //The Death of the Republican Party//

    Is it not already dead? It has certainly shown no sign of life for the past year.

  36. Phantom – you are the Best Virtue Signaler ever!!

  37. anti-Fascists are Fascists, anti-racists are racists, Diversity means oppression.

  38. btw, Did you hear that George Carlin play was banned on Brandeis campus? Too offensive!!

    something tells me that they’re burning all of the Mark Twain and William Faulkner books in the library

  39. Thanks honey

  40. Patty, this is the last sentence of your comment:

    They want cheap labor in 3rd world countries and an open market place in America

    That final paragraph doesn’t mention populism, it speaks about taking businesses out of America to cheap labour costing countries and then selling the product on the American market.

    That is precisely, exactly what dreamy Don did.

    You are casting the sins of your President onto those who disagree with him.

  41. Harri – I think most people want to be liked and are easily pushed around. Herd-like, not capable of fighting this instinct. It’s what makes humans so endearing but it’s also what makes mass hysteria possible.

    I think we are living in a time of mass hysteria over the most ridiculous things.

    Sexist pig.

    Burn him at the stake of righteousness. 😏

  43. Paul – if you were arguing in good faith, I would take the time to flesh out my comment – but you’re not so I’m not.

  44. Watch “Portlandia” on Netflix – hilarious

  45. “Thanks honey”

    Phantom, it wasn’t a compliment.

  46. Jesus, some shite being talked here alright. Do Rightworld even know what words mean anymore?

  47. Paul, I can’t help you.

  48. No Patricia you haven’t been around that much, why don’t you do a post or two once in awhile. You do add another perspective and you unlike others can write.

    There are certain words I don’t find acceptable.

    I find Allan himself unacceptable, I don’t block him, but he will behave or I execute.

  49. Bye now.

  50. Phantom..You shall be sent for re-education with immediate effect. 😏

    You old sexist pig you..ho!d your head in shame.

    Neanderthalic behaviour such as calling a woman “honey” or “baby” is as out of fashion as cave paintings. Particularly in the workplace, certain kinds of sexist language are simply no longer accepted.

    http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20170329-the-hidden-sexism-in-workplace-language

  51. Oh gee

  52. Paul, I can’t help you

    Patty, you need to help yourself before attempting it with anyone else.

    Paul – if you were arguing in good faith, I would take the time to flesh out my comment – but you’re not so I’m not.

    No matter how you dress it up it’s still an excuse.

  53. Your just so old fashioned. 😏

    You need to get out a bit more, and meet women…and stuff.

  54. Allan my thread my rules.
    You can’t use the N word. Use it again I will block you on my threads and personally petition David to put you in time out [….]

    ATW seems to be morphing into a collection of undiscerning snowflakes….

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Troll’s a snowflake 🙂

    Watch it Pat, they’ll be calling you ‘liberal’ next 🙂

  55. Even if what Allan said was OK – and it’s not OK – it is the type of stupid comment that puts the site itself in jeopardy.

    It’s unfriendly to the site itself.

    No virtue signalling on anyone’s part to lay down the law here.

  56. I don’t use the N word because the true meaning of the word has been stolen and co-opted. I also don’t use the P or C word. These are just basic rules of decency.

    Even those of us that swear every goddamn day don’t use certain words. Plus the N word has a political agenda attached with it no matter who uses it or how it’s used.

    I don’t play the race game. I find it a game only entered into by either side by those of lesser ability.

    So there are certain words you can not say in my presence. The N word is one of the very few.

    The comment was OK and it was made clearly with tongue-in-cheek sentiment but from some of the comments made here one would believe that I had recommended the demographic destruction of entire countries. Oops – there are comments made at ATW which do exactly that.

    And then there is the posturing, this coming from Phantom, and Patrick of course who has no power or influence anywhere – except at ATW and, by Jove, he’s going to use it.

    Then there is mahons who lambasts the custodian of this site for daring to by-pass the opinion-controllers by going to RT and then has the following effrontery……..

    Yeah, whatever

  58. Allan if you notice I didn’t edit what you said, just the word.

    This is a very American Culture thing, you people really don’t appreciate the baggage that the utterance of it no matter what the context brings.

    Just don’t use it, thanks I’d appreciate it.

    Nearly 30k Diversity Visas Have Been Given To Immigrants From Terror States

    Nearly 30,000 foreigners from state sponsors of terrorism have gotten visas since 2007 through the diversity visa lottery.

    President Donald Trump wants Congress to end the program, which benefits foreigners from nations that don’t have high levels of immigration to the U.S. He increased his public pressure against the program after an Uzbek recipient of the diversity visa lottery allegedly killed eight in a recent terrorist attack in New York City.

    Statistics released by the White House Monday show that since 2007 the program has given permanent residence visas — green cards — to 20,739 Iranians, 7,232 Sudanese and 812 Syrians. The program gives out 50,000 visas annually to immigrants chosen at random.

    “One of the main national security weaknesses that experts have identified in the diversity visa program is the lack of restrictions on admissions,” the House Judiciary Committee wrote in a 2004 report.

    “First, there are few restrictions on the countries from which applicants may come. … Second, under the program, successful applicants are chosen at random. Consequently, those aliens who win the diversity visa lottery do not necessarily have any ties to the United States. … Because diversity visa winners do not necessarily have such ties, the program could offer an opportunity for individuals or groups who want to harm the United States, its institutions, and its people to place terrorists in the United States. … Any potential terrorist who did win the diversity visa lottery could live here freely, and come and go with little scrutiny.”

    A program that invites cultural suicide and an open path for terrorists in the Holy name of “DIVERSITY”
