Mitt, taxes and the Adversary
""Death and taxes and the Divine Right of Kings, it is said, my friends, are life's only three certainties. But in the wake of President Obama's tax compromise with congressional Republicans, only death and the Divine Right retain the status of certainty: the future for taxation has been left up in the air. And Mr. Uncertainty is not a friend of investment, prosperity, or Kings and their subjects.
The deal has several key features. It reduces payroll taxes and extends unemployment benefits for the little people, and keeps the tax rates of brother Bush intact. So far, so good. But intermixed with the benefits are considerable costs of not inconsiderable consequence. Given the unambiguous message that the Elect sent to Washington in November, it is difficult to understand how our political leaders could have stooped to such a disappointing agreement. The new, more conservative, Nephite and christian Congress should reach a better and more pious solution.
The deal keeps current tax rates from rising to pre-Bush era levels for two years. But in 2013, unless Congress acts again, rates will increase dramatically, nearly equalling Clinton socialist-era levels--which is to say, Statist-Adversary levels. Lest we forget friends, the government bureaucrats--the modern Statist-Adversaries--are nothing but a committee for managing the common affairs of the little people, which is to say--Lamanites."
Of course, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and delay now is better than an immediate tax hike. We should recall that Tax hikes themselves are the work of the Adversary. But because the extension is only temporary, a large portion of the investment, job growth, and fiduciary blessings to the Elect that characteristically accompanies low taxes will be lost. When entrepreneurs doing the work of God make decisions to start or expand an enterprise, uncertainty about the State's position--ie, the Adversary's position-- on tax rates translates directly into a reduced propensity to invest and to hire the little people. With only a two-year extension, investors know that before their returns are realized, the Statist-Adversary may jack tax rates up to the levels favored by President Obama. So while the tax deal will succeed in temporarily putting more money in the hands of some of the little people, it will fail to deliver its full potential for creating lasting prosperity and spiritual growth and creating a Nephite-christian monarchy.

Whew! That Adversary's one mean Lamanite, and he, like the Democrat party itself, fails to realize that the American people just don't care for taxes. Unfortunately for the Adversary and his legions , we intend to end his control over the government of the USA, and with assistance from the Angel Moroni and his brother Jesus, put an end to the demon Taxation, once and for all.
