Obama and the media are going after a hard working man because he asked a question. Joe the plumber as it turns out does not have a license. If he has great referrals and does great work, it would not matter if he had a license. When government requires people to get a license, it means you are not allowed to work unless you have government permission. Any requirement for permission to work is totally incompatible with freedom. His referrals will mean much more to customers than a license would.
Now on to taxes. The Obama media went digging for Joe's tax(Theft) returns. Turns out he has not paid up his full amount of extortion money to big daddy government. One publication even wrote the following - "Tax experts pointed out that Joe the Plumbers' taxes would only rise by $600 under Mr Obama's plan if he reached the higher threshold. Mr Wurzelbacher has however admitted that he is "not even close" to buying the business."
Only $600.00 per year! [Now yelling]ONLY $600.00 PER YEAR!! Now we already know the $600.00 figure will really be at least 3 or 4 times that. However, lets just stick with the stated $600.00 figure for now. How stupid can these people in mainstream media really be. Let the Freetarian Sean Morley(Val Venis) explain the painful truth here to these morons in MSM. If Joe the plumber were able to keep those $600.00 per year Obama wants to steal from him, and invest the full $600.00 into a private investment which would after inflation average 9% per year. Joe the plumber would have after 30 years $97 106.00. Now imagine how much he would have if he were allowed to keep every penny he earned. Look, I could go on and on here but I will Digress. The bottom line is we are supposed to live in a free country and if you must fear challenging politicians for their thuggish views, then we no longer live in a free country. Time to wake up folks. TIME TO WAKE UP!!!
