Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.
A proposal to levy a tax on cats and dogs that stunned Italy on Friday turned out to be all bark and no bite after a wave of popular anger saw it withdrawn on the same day it was made public.

This is just another example of what the liberals do to raise money, or for that matter, anything else. They will try to do something that deep down they know will never work *at least for now* just to test the waters to see what the public sentiment on that is. Here it was to levy a tax on cats and dogs. You notice that public anger had it withdrawn on the same day that it was proposed. But, now, they will come up with something else, that is less intrusive, and maybe it will work, maybe not. If it doesn’t they go a little less, till they get what they want and they get a little of what they wanted in the first place.
Now, granted, this was in Italy, but if you follow politics like I do, you can see the same thing happening here. The party in power will propose something that they hope will work, but they are not sure. So they propose it to see if it will pass. If it does, they are happy. If it doesn’t, they back off a bit and propose something else that has less stuff in it, till they get something of what they want. Then the next time they go for more. This is something on the lines of “compromise” that I have railed against for almost 6 years now. With compromise, the democrats always eventually get what they want. It just takes a little longer to do.
Thankfully, the people are starting to wake up to this fact. But like I have said before, I have been blogging for close to ten years now, and watching politics for a lot longer. I have seen this scenario played out over and over again, and both parties are guilty of it, though the democrats have it down to a fine art!!!
They know what the people will go for and what they won’t. So they propose something that they know will get voted down, and then when it does, they take out the “most offending parts” and resubmit it, and get it passed. But in that they are not ever happy. The next time they propose even more than they did the last time, knowing the people will vote it down, then they take out the “more” and get the stuff passed that didn’t pass the time before. That is why the democrats have it down to a fine art. They know without a doubt that they will eventually get what they want. All they have to be is patient. And patience for them has always won out.
And history is on my side on this one, for you liberals and followers who say this doesn’t happen. All you have to do is look back to the laws passed in the twentieth century. The footprint of that kind of “compromise” is all over the place. It doesn’t take much research to find it.
The democrats use compromise in everything they do. Working to bring more social justice to the forefront, they work with things that on the surface sound really good and they know that most people will vote on the “feel good” aspect of it to “help people in need” without looking into the bill to see what else is hidden in there. It’s like ObamaCare. Remember Nancy Pelosi telling the American people “let us pass this bill so we can see what is in it!”?
She knew that once it was passed it was law and it didn’t matter what was in it then. One of the quotes of Ronald Reagan that they truly believe in is this one. “No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!” And the problem arises when we realize that ObamaCare is a government program.
In the Italian law proposal to tax dogs and cats, one parliamentarian who was mad about the law being proposed said:
“The only thing that’s left to tax are wives and children.”
And you know that it’s on their minds if it was brought up, don’t you? And if it wasn’t on their minds, it is now.
But constantly allowing spending to stay “out of control” like the democrats in our government like to have it, will always result in the politicians looking for new and more bazaar ways to dream up new ways of revenue raising measures. Becaue the money will be needed to pay for all of that stuff. And like I said in the title of this, if we do not stop this before it gets any farther, when November comes, my friends, just know that it is coming folks. Mark my words!
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
