Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Deficits and the Debt

My solution is simple:  Don’t spend any more than we have in revenue.  We have been spending more than we have for too long.  I would privatize things government doesn’t have to run (Post Office, Office of Horse and Burro, and Congress)

2011 and Federal Agencies

This week I will be taking a look at what will be happening to Washington in 2011. I will be looking at the House, the Senate, the White House, the Supreme Court, and Federal agencies. Today I will look at federal agencies.

The Republicans are now in  control of the House of the Representatives.  They say they want to make government smaller.  There are two problems with that.  The first problem is the last time Republicans made government smaller, they added $5 trillion to the debt.  The other problem is that Democrats still control the Senate and the White House, and they’re more concerned with keeping and strengthening government programs than they are with managing the debt (Currently at $14 trillion).

Democrats want to give federal agencies more power while Republicans want to give government less power.  This is the opposite from when Bush was President and Republicans wanted more power for the government and Democrats wanted government to have less power (and more money.)  The general rule is that the majority wants more power and the minority wants less.  This pattern will continue until the minority has more people than the majority.

The one agency that could buck this trend is the U.S. Postal Service.  Unlike other agencies, the Postal Service is funded by revenue they generate.  They haven’t been generating as much revenue in recent years as more people are realizing that you can send e-mail without paying $.44 per e-mail.  This is making the Postal Service want to cut mail delivery to 5 days per week and getting rid of Saturday delivery.

While the Postal Service cuts service and personnel, you can breath easy knowing that there will be more TSA agents at airports to grope you and more IRS agents to make sure you’re paying your taxes so the government can pay the TSA agents to grope you.

There will be more government to protect you in 2011 than ever before.  You’ll only to be able to read about it in the mail five days a week.

Two Sides of a Coin

Just about every coin has two sides.  (17th century Bavarian coins have three sides because they were spastic.)  There is a head and a tail.  The head has either a portrait of a dead guy or Queen Elizabeth (depending on which country you live in.)  The tail is something that is not human.

There are also two sides to every debate.  An example is the spending bill passed by the Senate today.  Republicans wanted the tax cute to become permanent and estate taxes to be cut to 35%.  Democrats wanted unemployment benefits to be extended for up to 99 weeks.

Republicans are against the unemployment benefits because it is too much spending.  Democrats are against extending tax cuts because it doesn’t generate revenue for the government.  Both parties say they are concerned about increasing the deficit and enlarging the debt.

Compromise can be good or it can be bad.  It can be good when the good from party A and the good from party B outweighs the bad from party A and the bad from party B.  But if the bad from the two parties outweigh the good, then compromise is bad.

Today’s bill is bad.  It took the bad ideas from both parties and added $1trillion to the debt.  It will take 8,000,000 people 30 years to pay off the debt and interest from today’s bill.

Today was a coin-flip with the coin landing in the drain and becoming irretrievable.  Not only will we have more debt, but somebody has lost a coin.

A Look at my Platform – Income Taxes

Over the next couple weeks, I will take issues from my platform and further explain my positions. Today, I will discuss my views on income taxes.

The current tax code is too difficult. My tax code would involve all Americans sending in 100% of their income and giving a refund every Friday once the government bills are paid for the week.

This will accomplish a number of goals:

  • It will make sure all of the government’s bills are paid and we don’t borrow to pay for government.
  • It will curb spending because many people will complain if they’re not getting enough money back.
  • It will assure that people have money for the weekend.

People will get less money back at first because we have to pay off the debt.  The goal is to eventually limit the amout of money government needs to spend to 20% of people’s paycheck.

As for getting paid every Friday, this will be in effect even if you only get paid once every two weeks.  Welfare recipients will recieve their benefits every Friday.  Hush money will be paid every Friday.

This is the most sensible plan because it allows government to pays its bills without running a debt and people will get a sense of how much it costs to run government.  People will also have money for the weekend every weekend.

Ahmnodt the Fiscal Conservative

If you want to vote for a true fiscal conservative, candidate Ahmnodt Heare has McCain and Obama beat.

Projected Spending for campaigns for October, 2008:

Obama: $110,000,000
McCain: $70,000,000
Heare: $.30

I didn’t want to spend the 30 cents, but I needed a couple of posters for tonight’s Meet-and-Greet in Vernon, NJ. My campaign is run solely on word-of-mouth campaigning and volunteer enthusiasm.

In these tough economic times, it’s just not right to ask people to part with their hard-earned money to spend on a political campaign.  I believe that people should use their money for what they want to:  entertainment, booze, and (starting on November 1), discounted Halloween candy.

If you want to live in a lifetime of perpetual debt, then feel free to vote for John Obama or Barack McCain.  If you want to quit sending money to Washington, vote for the candidate who will quit spending it:  Ahmnodt Heare.

How Would I Break the Habit of Too Much Debt?

I would break the habit of too much debt by making things more affordable.  If Cars were only $100, nobody would need a car loan.  If housing prices were only $1,000, people would be able to save up for that.  The money saved can be used to buy really cool stuff.  This will stimulate the economy.  I am fighting the cinemafia for this reason.
