Oppressive Taxation Drives Out California's High-Earning Golfers

No matter how many times it is proven, there are those who refuse to accept that high rates of taxation reach a level of diminishing returns.Rich people often vote with their feet. Recently, this was in the news in France when actor Gerard Depardieu decided to escape the 75% tax rate under the new socialist government. Now we have a high-profile case right here at home.

Natural Gas Vehicles- Clean, Domestic, and Under Attack

Natural gas is a clean, abundant, domestic natural resource, so it only makes sense that Americans should be turning to this as an alternative to oil and gasoline. Although natural gas vehicles are being manufactured, they are not catching on like other alternative fuels such as electric. Could this be because the government is once again playing favorites against domestic resources?

Around the World, Citizens Flee High Tax Rates

Fans of smaller government and lower taxes will hardly be surprised that financially successful people in France are leaving in the face of new 75% income tax rates on the highest earners. Under Socialist President François Holllande, this new rate will become effective in 2013 and has led many of the highest earners to leave the country- with their money. Now, this punitive tax rate has hit the limelight.

Teachers Union Educate Kids on 'Trickle Down' Economics

Teachers are given the incredible responsibility of educating children. Around the world, parents entrust these men and women to spend their days educating children with the expectation that they will stick to the curriculum and leave personal beliefs at home. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

ObamaCare - President was not and is not Truthful

Democracy and Power 108: ObfuscationWherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. – Hans F. SennholzSeeking a favorable image, the politician talks in generalities, exaggerates and obfuscates.

Lame Duck Agenda Grows

The lame duck agenda that Democratic leadership poopooed for months is growing.  Remember back in July when the left swore there was "no secret plan!"?  This scoffing was followed closely by saying a lame duck session was "pretty preposterous and straight out of the black-helicopter wing of GOP thinking."

Administration Seeks Higher Corporate Taxes

Deferral allows companies to defer income into the future to avoid high marginal tax rates on income. The administration is fighting to collect deferral money with a plan that will increase taxes on international American companies by $190 billion over the next 10 years.  If the American government makes it more expensive for American companies to bring home money to the United States, then they might stop--and that could harm American workers.  Microsoft’s CEO, Steven Balmer in a recent interview said, “It makes U.S. jobs more expensive.  We’re better off taking lots of people and moving them out of the U.S. as opposed to keeping them inside the U.S.”  It’s likely that this tax hike will result in less government income in the end when American jobs and companies move overseas and reduce the size of the tax base.

Key Vote No: H.R. 1256

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, including many in your state, I urge you to vote “No” on H.R. 1256: the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  This legislation marks a radical increase in power for the Food and Drug Administration, additional growth of government, and a significant intrusion by government into the daily lives and decisions of its citizens.

1200 in North Carolina Attend Countywide Protest!

The FreedomWorks chapter in Orange County organized a "Tax Revolt" to fight the results of the recent property revaluation and protest local government's unsustainable spending spree. Attendance was phenomenal, with over 1200 individuals showing up for the Monday night meeting. Missed the meeting but want to get involved? I would encourage you to read the report. A quote from protester Brian Berger of Carrboro summarizes the fight yet to come:
