Fiscal cliff:What are you willing to sacrifce as an individual?
 
With the fiscal cliff looming and both sides talking about more than a band aid approach but real long term solutions. For that to happen, there is going be some pain and its going to have to be painful to everyone.

If every segment, group and social/economic part of America is going to chip in something to get out of this deficit/debt, what will you be willing to chip in as an individual? Again, this is only if everyone is having to chip in something.

I'd be willing to give up the medical/dental insurance being deducted from my paycheck before taxes are taken out. That pre-tax break that I get from the government will increase my tax bill around $1000 - $1,500 every year.

I will give up being kept safe by our military overseas.

Then I'm going to contribute by keeping my hours and income low. So I don't have to fund a "gang of criminals writ large."

My free cell phone. Must have gotten lost in the mail, anyway.

Without a balanced budget amendment? Nothing. I already "sacrifice" plenty and I don't trust these idiots to be fiscally-sound.

Stop protecting Japan, large parts of Europe and other areas. Stop policing the world.

If you're really going to deliberately pay more taxes when you don't have to, you're a moron.

theelusiveeightrop 11-17-2012 10:58 AM

I like paying more taes to our corrupt and inept government.

That's not isolationism, since I am willing to trade, visit their countries and engage in discourse with them.
Get it right, I said military as in military intervention. It's escalating the jihadi movement.

Then again, I would be safer if we were isolated. Just like Switzerland—who has not been attacked in the modern era.
And they still manage to be peace negotiators. You drink the progressive govt KoolAid.

The thread question is what are you willing to sacrifice as an individual.
What do you want to give up.


Kill all the lawyers? I am used to hearing that from communists.
