Tough People Are Like Taxes – They Aren’t Going to Yield to Anything

There sure has been a lot of political discussion about taxes in the United States ever since President Barack Obama was elected, and indeed there is a good reason for it too. You see, when a president has high approval ratings, a lot of power and his political party controls both houses, they can push through just about anything, so when the president has stated that he wants universal health care, or rather health insurance for everybody, anyone that knows anything about public policy, taxation and government knows those are code words for increased taxes.

Now the president has promised that we will not raise taxes, well, maybe a little bit he said, so everyone can have health care insurance. But that’s not how things work in the real world. With the government and its programs they spend 45% of all the money they spend in administration of those programs. So therefore, it automatically costs 45% more than they had bargained for, or that their strategic plan reveals on the onset.

Additionally, if everyone has health care insurance, then everyone is going to use more medical services more. In fact, one research study shows that people will use medical services five times as much if they have full coverage. This means we are going to have a supply and demand problem with healthcare services in America and there will be shortages, there is already a shortage of nurses and now there will be a shortage of doctors, hospitals, elder care facilities, and just about everything that has to do with the medical industry.

Now, this is an incredible gift to the medical industry, the hospitals, the HMOs, pharmaceutical industry, and anyone else involved in healthcare, or anyone that makes medical equipment. But with all these gifts going to the medical industry, that also means higher taxes for all of us. How high you ask?

The sky is the limit and the government has the power to take as much as they need to administer the laws and promises they’ve made. Thomas Jefferson once had an interesting quote and I want you to memorize this; “Any Government Big Enough to Give You Everything You Want, Is Also Big Enough to Take Everything That You Have.”

Now, I’m not sure how much credibility you put in Thomas Jefferson, but he was a studier of governments in history and if we don’t listen to his words of wisdom we are doomed to repeat the history and failures of socialism, and quite frankly that’s just a shame for such a proud and noble nation as the United States of America. Please consider all this.

If You Need Money to Fight a War Then Lower Taxes and You’ll Have It

Many government leaders believe that if you have to fight a war you are going to have to raise taxes and print money to do it. However, this is the wrong approach. If you lower taxes and you get the economy screaming along there will actually be greater economies of scale and more left over to build your war machine and pay for it. One can only ask why anyone who is an economist or a free-market thinker wouldn’t see this.

Perhaps, the Socialist Democrats wish to raise taxes and destroy the economy, so there are no economies of scale left, thus, nothing left over for the war machine, and therefore no war can be fought. Unfortunately, no war can be won either, and that means if your enemy attacks you at a time when you are in a state of economic decay you will not be able to fight them and win. Thus, all you have done is surrendered your civilization to a hostile force because you destroyed your own economy.

Indeed, was in it Sun Tzu, who talked about letting the enemy destroy himself from within, and avoiding those wars that you cannot win, and fighting the battles that you can? Is the United States of America setting itself up for a major military defeat that would be unheard of? One, which will put us in economic slavery, and find us being invaded by another force. Currently, we are not defending against such a challenge in the future and we are doing everything in the present to prevent ourselves from having the resources to strengthen our defense. This is a mistake.

Obviously, the wiser thing to do is to lower taxes and reduce regulation on small businesses, regain full employment and have the economies of scale to strengthen our military to fight both future wars and defend ourselves. Please consider this.

Timeshare Tax

So, I was just reading an article about a tax being imposed on timeshare owners in Myrtle Beach. This tax would be imposed to bring in money for the state’s tourism products to be marketed. It seemed like another thing that timeshare owners now have to deal with. It got me thinking about all the people who have timeshares right now and already want to sell but are having trouble. Now they may be even more desperate to fall into the hands of companies like Prudential West. Companies that will offer you a quick and easy fix to your problem and then charge you fees and never sell your timeshare. You get tricked into working with them and pay them the fees they charge, but then never get the results that you were promised.

I think of the many people that own timeshares in Myrtle beach and then are now being charged with extra taxes that they don’t feel are right. Now they may be looking to sell their timeshare and then end up falling into the hands of a company like Prudential West that offer a timeshare exit strategy. These methods that they use and promises that they make are wrong and it is unfair that they offer them and get away with it. If I was a timeshare owner looking to sell and didn’t already know about these agencies then I would probably fall victim to them too and pay their fees and get no results.

I know that certain resale companies are real and can provide someone with help selling their timeshare. I also know about companies that make promises they cannot keep and scam people out of their money. Like I mentioned, Prudential West is a company that will use these tactics to get people to try and sell their timeshare with them. I just hope that the people who want to sell their timeshares and avoid these new taxes can successfully sell their timeshare and avoid these scams.

It is complaints like this about Prudential West that have begun to really hurt the company and their rapidly declining sales figures. Buyers need to exercise caution when thinking about working with companies like Prudential West, or any other company that there are so many complaints about online.

Taxes Are Up Despite Rising Number Of Foreclosed And Bankruptcy Homes

Some areas of West Virginia are faced with increases in property taxes despite continuous declines in property values due to high levels of foreclosed and bankruptcy homes. In Kanawha County, residents were informed that their taxes will be going up. Homeowners reportedly questioned the decision, arguing that taxes should not be increased when values of homes have declined.

Foreclosure numbers in the state, including foreclosed homes in Beckley WV, might not be as high as in other U.S. states, but the region still felt the impact of the housing market crisis, particularly in the values of their homes. The announcement in Kanawha has prompted complaints from homeowners who have seen their homes lose value over the past three years or so. In addition, housing unit sales in most of the state’s markets have also declined, causing further depression in the real estate sector.

According to realtors, foreclosures in West Virginia have not only depressed prices, but have also discouraged buy and sell transactions. In Greenbrier County, for example, realtors reported that around 1,300 properties were sold for at least $ 10,000 in 2005, but the number has dropped to 610 in 2010 in the same price range.

Realtors stated that the lack of activity and the huge supplies of foreclosed and bankruptcy homes have weighed down the prices of properties in the state. This, some residents have argued, should be enough reason not to raise property taxes. They asserted that since tax assessments are based on the appraised value of properties, if the value is down, so should the taxes.

Some market observers have explained that, in most cases, tax assessors are a year or so behind in their assessment of property values. This means that the impact of foreclosures listings on values of homes in the region today might not be reflected on property taxes until a year or two later. They also stated that values of houses are not based merely on the property itself, but also on neighboring homes.

The recent announcement of property tax increases had residents in Kanawha questioning the validity of the method of assessing property taxes in the region. They asserted that because of the huge number of foreclosed and bankruptcy homes in the community, taxes should be going down instead of up.
