It is of little surprise that these retailers because the Supreme Court has ruled that if you have a physical presence in a state you are required to pay all state taxes due in that state including sales. Whenever lawmakers use the term “level playing field” your BS meter should spin like a top. These big box stores already have a mechanism to collect these taxes as they have a physical location in those states but the problem doesn’t end their. This law violates not only the intent of the commerce clause but violates the constitution itself.
I get a lot of my inspiration from my online debates and this is no exception. April 13,2013 TEA Party Perspective’s sponsored “Tax Day Pints and Politics” . On facebook I clicked on maybe and saw many familiar names none of which I have met but wanted to. I tried to find a way to get down there in order to meet many of my fellow patriots. When I found that it was impossible to attend the event I changed from maybe to no and found that facebook puts declines in a separate area. But again I found several familiar names among the trolls. Among these was Andrew Rogers, a leftist activist who tried to shut down Conservative Talk Radio so being me I engaged him. I pointed to the fact that the so called “entitlements” were what was driving our national debt and that they would eventually destroy our country.
Tax Freedom Day One Day Earlier as the Tax Environment in Wisconsin Improves
MacIver News Service | April 15, 2013
April 15th has been celebrated as Tax Day in the United States for over five decades. However, when it comes to taxes, another day should receive a greater amount of attention. That day is what the Tax Foundation has titled, Tax Freedom Day.
Conservatives gathered to commemorate Tax Day with a Pints & Politics event this past Saturday evening hosted by United in Freedom.
The 5100 Bar in McFarland was where conservatives gathered to celebrate the Constitution and the successes Wisconsin has enjoyed with the implementation of Act 10, Concealed Carry and the passage of the Mining Law. They also recognized where Wisconsin still has work to do. That is where most of the attention was focused.
A variety of topics were covered at the event from 2nd Amendment issues, to energy independence, to a discussion on Common Core Curriculum and property rights led by popular talk show host Vicki McKenna. Continue reading →
I was a proud member of ban the ban Wisconsin when we filed a complaint against the Surgeon Generals report. I do not hide my affiliations, I am a proud Libertarian who also is a member of “Americans for Prosperity” as well as several TEA Party groups. Harry Chestnuts released the following video after we lodged the complaint. While the video is humorous it is not far from the truth. Stanton has recently released a so called report besmirching TEA Parties as a front for “Big Tobacco”
When Scott Walker ran one of the promises that he made was to repeal the smoking ban. Not only did this ban violate the Constitution namely the takings clause of the fifth and 14th amendment. “ nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
Mr Walker not only reneged on that promise, it appears that he is expanding the attack on smokers using the exact same methods that Comrade Doyle used to enact the ban. The state budget. First here is Scott in his own words on the smoking ban.
Mr Walker has a multi-pronged attack on smokers in the budget.
With all the high drama in DC in regard to the budget and talk of sequestration, the people are standing together to ensure their voices are heard.
On Monday morning several people met with Congressman Tom Petri’s District Director, Tyler Vorpagel. The citizens, led by AFP representative Nate Nelson, presented him with petitions from citizens across the 6th District insisting Rep. Petri hold the line on spending. This was part of a coordinated effort by Americans for Prosperity which had similar meetings with Congressmen Paul Ryan and Sean Duffy.
*Updated to include a link to the governor’s budget.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker presented his 2013-2015 biennial budget to the state Wednesday evening.
In Walker’s 2011 budget proposal in Wisconsin was in a bad position. There was high unemployment and a significant budget deficit. His budget proposal at that time resulted in union induced drama that is still stewing to this day.
This budget proposal comes form a governor with a proven strategy, after Wisconsin has successfully turned a budget deficit into a surplus and lowered the unemployment rate from 8% to less than 6.9%.
The balanced budget offering tonight has even greater promise for Wisconsin. Continue reading →
Seriously, where are they when we need them? Not to be captain obvious but we are in the middle of a fiscal crisis right now and conservatives have no leadership left. I feel like we’ve been abandoned, am I alone here?
We can place the blame on the horrendous vote and bill in lots of places, but we need to look first at who did the back door dealings and threw a bill on the table with 3 minutes to spare. Who made the right decision on how the voted is hard to say right now. Without being there I don’t know.
What I do know is that what Mitch McConnell did was flat-out wrong. He can try to defend himself any way that he wants, but throwing a bill at your party with 3 minutes to vote, after backdoor negotiations is deceitful to us as conservatives and anything but transparent. I want a leader, someone to stand up and put their foot down. I want a cowboy.
America, as a nation is on quite the road trip right now. The days tick by as we drive along, each day getting closer and closer to the dreaded “fiscal cliff”. We’ve heard all about it but what does it mean for average, middle class families?
What it means is that although Obama promised that the middle class would NEVER see a tax increase, he lied. We already know that the Bush era tax rates are going to expire on December 31st (if no deal is reached, this is when we are set to drive off the cliff). What we will see then is the largest tax increase in American history, not just for the so called rich, but for everyone. We are all going to pay. Although the left will deny that they want this, their own words speak otherwise.
