SMALL BUSINESS, LARGE HEADACHE

LIVING IN THE WEST, SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS, SERENITY, AND THE SLOW PACE OF LIFE, I HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE MY ISOLATION AND PEACE.  ONE GETS THE FEELING THAT THE ‘OUTSIDE’ WORLD WON’T TREAD HERE.  AND IT RARELY DOES. A GOOD HORSE MAKES BETTER COMPANY THAN MOST PEOPLE DO ANYWAY.  BUT MY IRRATATION DOESN’T COME THE PEOPLE THAT I KNOW.  IT COMES FROM THE ONE’S I DON’T KNOW AND WILL PROBABLY NEVER MEET.  THE POLITICIAN.

AS A SMALL BUSINESS MAN, I AM REALLY BEGINNING TO LOATH THE POLITICIAN.  WHEN I WAS A YOUNGER MAN, A PERSON COULD TAKE A DREAM AND RUN WITH IT.  AN AMERICAN COULD START A BUSINESS WITH JUST DETERMINATION AND HARD WORK.  WATCH IT FLOURISH AND GROW, AND PROVIDE THEM WITH SECURITY.

OH, HOW THE TIMES ARE CHANGING.  IN TODAY’S WORLD, WE NOW WATCH WHAT USE TO BE OUR PROFITS GO THE GOVERNMENT IN THE FORM OF TAXATION.  AFTER YOU MATCH SOCIAL SECURITY TAXES, UNEMPLOYMENT TAXES, MEDICARE TAXES, FEDERAL AND STATE TAXES, YOU BEGIN TO WONDER WHAT YOU CAN LIVE ON.  BACK IN THE DAY, WHEN I WOULD TAKE A PAYCHECK FROM MY EMPLOYER, I REMEMBER HOW UNHAPPY I WAS AT THE DEDUCTIONS FROM MY PAY.  NOW, AS THE EMPLOYER, I WONDER IF I WILL EVEN GET A PAY CHECK.

AND IN THE INFINITE WISDOM OF OUR CURRENT INCUMBANTS IN WASHINGTON, I NO LONGER HAVE TO WORRY.  THEE JUST WON’T BE A PAYCHECK.  THE BACKBONE OF AMERICAN IS BEING BROKEN.  WITH THE INCREASED SPENDING OF OUR ELECTORATE, THEY SEE IT FIT TO ADD ADDITIONAL TAXES TO THE BUSINESS OWNER TO PAY FOR THEM.  IF THE HEALTH CARE PASSES, WE ADD ANOTHER 5% TO SMALL BUSINESS TAXES.  IF CAP AND TRADE PASSES, 5%.  THE FIRST STIMULUS ADDED 3%, AND I WONDER WHAT THE SECOND WILL CONTRIBUTE.  IF THE PROGESSIVE MOVEMNET GETS ALL THAT THEY WISH, WE WILL BE LOOKING AT 15-18% INCREASES IN SMALL BUSINESS TAXES.  THIS WILL RELATE TO OVER 50% OF OUR REVENUE. 

SMALL BUSINESS IS WHAT DRIVES AMERICA.  EMPLOYEES THE MASSES.  IMPROVES OUR HUMAN CONDITION.  PROVIDES INOVATION AND PROGRESS.  THE WAY TO ESCAPE OUR CURRENT RECESION IS TO BUILD AND GROW SMALL BUSINESS, NOT HAMPER AND DESTROY IT. 

WE MUST, AS A PEOPLE, STOP THE CRUCIFICTION OF SMALL BUSINESS.  WE MUST PUT A STOP THE INCREASING SPENDING AT WASHING IN OUR NAME, WITH OUR MONEY, THROUGH TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.  THE TIDE CAN BE TURNED, AND THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA CAN DO THIS.  WE HOLD THE VOTE, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE HOLD THE CONSTITUTION.  LET US LEARN THE CONSTITUTION AND ABIDE BY IT.  LET US, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BEGIN TO BUILD OUR COUNTRY TO BE GREAT ONCE AGAIN.

GOD BLESS US ALL,

SHOWGAIT
