😂 AOC is absolutely insane! Not to mention only 11% of the people in her district think she has their best interests in mind 🤭
Let’s talk tax, though.
First off, throw out the “what about roads” argument. Firstly because it’s garbage, second because we obviously need to collect taxes to cover certain situations such as public roads, schools, and emergency situations.
A lot of people like to point to times in our country where we did really well despite incredibly high taxes. (Such as after both world wars). The problem with this is a large portion of the world was destroyed after these events. When we’re the only mass producing country in the world, you’re going to see great results in the economy.
Raising taxes is morally wrong. We want to be a country that pushes people to do better. Raising taxes on hard working people who work themselves into those higher brackets is literally punishing them for doing good things. It’s removes their incentive to grow, create more jobs, and push even more money through our economy.
We all love to talk about freedom and I think one of the most accurate statements about this God-given right is that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. I remember one of the times when freedom became personal for me. I was walking out of a super conservative college that controlled your every move (now if you like this college or didn’t have the same experience, this post isn’t really about them. They are a private college and free to do what they want. However I did hear they got in trouble for unlawful imprisonment at one point for “campussing” people. I met some great people at Pensacola and learned some amazing life skills - like how to be disciplined, to above and beyond, and keep your sink clean. Although that one didn’t stick too well. 😂). With that being said, after having your every move watched under facial recognition software, your emails censored, and countless other rules; you do kinda get used to it (you may be surprised to know I left with very few demerits or trouble). But...
Walking out at the end of the semester and seeing these people on their cell phones in the airport, putting on jeans and realizing that no one could stop you, and going home where you could listen to whatever you wanted to; you realize that freedom you took for granted was actually a pretty amazing thing. .
People, that’s where it’s at. It’s a feeling you can’t explain, but “liberating” comes to mind. Don’t ever let anyone undermine or take away yours. .
Just a FYI this post isn’t about telling you to go do whatever the heck you want cause there just might be some consequences anyways. 😉
