Caller plans to close business in wake of Obama election

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Elections do have consequences and one of those will certainly be on the economy. The President has made his intention clear to raise taxes on small businesses because he’s deemed anyone earning over $250,000 as rich. What kind of an impact would that have? Listen to this small business owner who called into radio today.

    Many small businesses owners in Phoenix I know of or deal with are soon to close up shop; they cannot see success happening in the atmosphere of mega taxes and all levied against them under Obama.

    Our nation is now on the edge of the abyss, and will soon plunge over completely. God help us all.

  • Darren Somsen

    Joe, you are dead wrong.  Obama has raised taxes on everyone, but under the radar.  The business tax rate in the US is the highest in the world.  Obamacare imposed a tax on all medical devices manufactured and sold in the US.  This has cost business millions of dollars in a marketplace where margins are small and R&D is expensive.

    And through regulation, Obama has caused every American to pay more for food, clothing and transportation.

This whole election might have been a game to you, just so you could be proven “right” and laugh at the loser. But in reality, this was not a game… this was a fight for something more than just Republican vs Democrat. And now we will all suffer because of you people.

    As the President said, “we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.” we’re all in hot water right now. Our country has to deal with automatic spending cuts, tax hikes on the rich and middle class, and a looming debt limit. (See NBC article on Obama’s “splitting headaches”.)  
     Let’s hope, pray and work for a continued recovery if it is the will of God.

    Joe — the Executive Branch cannot raise taxes.  That goes to the House and Senate which confirms tax bills coming out of the House.

    What 0bama has done is regulate the snot out of Americans.  And, oh by the way, 0bamacare IS a tax , per the SCOTUS.  So, in effect, his signature legislation has raised taxes on us all.

    Vinny — it will be you and yours who will be crying in a few years.  When you can’t find a doctor or dentist because they were run out of business, come on back and whine instead of this silly gloating.

    Any time politicians intentionally pit one group against the other, it’s bad for the country as a whole.

    In case you had not noticed, your guy is really pretty petty – poked the opposition in the eye after the first election:  elections have consequences and then not even trying to work w/the other side of the aisle which represented almost half the country.  This time it was vote for revenge.  He is appealing to humanity’s baser instincts, not calling on Americans to work together for the good of our nation.

Most Dems don’t even know the real Obama or anything about his Healthcare, Fast and Furious, Keystone, Debt or Bengazi. His other bills past in the middle of the night are all going un-reported.

    The people have spoken.
    They desired more of the same from their king of an unknown land.
    They will get what they wanted but not what they expected!

    A king with a mandate. Four more years to finish the task.
    Moving “forward” to completion.
    He will loot their wallets, raze their cities, and hobble their freedoms.

    A destroying wind who takes many prisoners.
    Before him, a breath that poisons with lies.
    Behind him a wake of destruction and desolation.

    His words are the sting of an adder. His smile the leer of a jackal.
    The pompous one armed with the keys to the city.
    Keys that were forged in the smelter of hell.

    The first four years began the siege.
    The next four will bring the destruction.
    A new army of dark occupation has entered the city.

    It was welcomed with applause.
    The clapping of the blind ones.
    Their coming wounds welcomed with loud cheers.

    So through the gates he arrived.
    He will loot their riches and strip their wells dry.
    He will torment them with a sneer and peel their land with a nod.

    America had her turn.
    She did not turn.

         We need to realize Exactly who empowered Obama in his first term which intentionally enabled Obama to commit his blatant acts of Treason.       By the rules of the now  Defunct constitution  a POTUS cannot legally change or create or act on  99% of the promises made during a campaign as well as being elected. 
        Until Congress bipartisanly  passed the  illegal Patriot act and  Obama signed into supposedly Law , the   unconstitutional NDAA  bill . Congress and Congress alone had the power to Legislate. .
       Thus, The Primary perps of Treason are Congress as a whole.

         Now “We The People” live in  what I consider a Dictatorship Nation .
       Congress is more to blame for America’s demise than even “We The People” .
         If, as if If really counts for jack, Congress had adhered to their Oath of Office  Obama would not have been POTUS to begin with  to be re-elected.
       Obama is as Congress is also , Traitors of the Oath and American citizens.

        All 3 Branches are no more than Third world nation type for show leaders. 
      In short, Congress wants “We The People exactly where we are now, otherwise they would have bucked up long ago and done the Right thing for America. 
       
     About the caller closing up shop , I to am rushing to shut down my business before DEC 30. 
        44 years of hard work, worries & stress  and a Communist Enemy within was what it took to wake me up to the fact that my customers who are already hurting financially as I also am , are about to join me in the ranks of Obama’s Utopian dream , aka Nightmare  and thus So go I and 44 years worth of loyal customers and friends.
       3 more small business owners I know well have said they to are cashing out at  whatever price possible  and quitting after many years,
         Just as my Business friends mentioned &  just as I can say  , things started downhill for my business around 2007 and went into overdrive toward our personal Fiscal cliffs  after Obama was elected. 
        2 left Hooks from the Left in a row in  5 years  is more than I can overcome.
       Last night’s Bogus Election was My Fiscal Cliff. and as I watched the Obama camp celebrating , I went back to old 1930′s film clips of Hitler’s campaign.. Identical visuals . 
        Just as America’s fiscal cliff inevitably  has to follow the people WHO DAMMED SURE DID  BUILD the Nation which  THE SOCIALIST  of both Parties and all 3 branches have  destroyed the last several years.

          I see 30 -40 more Legislating Czars being appointed as I speak here.
       Congress relinquished their Power & Authority to a Single person and illegal czars and Hell for us is coming to usher in Freedom’s last gasp without a doubt.
       Other than  the collective Congress  being without doubt,  as Guilty of Treason against “We The People” as Obama is  , they are also no of any useful purpose  any longer. 

       I feel like I just lost the love of my life to a cocaine snorting , bi-sexual Pimp from hell’s half acre of unrivaled miseries.

    The tax for bsns went up to 35 percent under his watch.

    Many, though, confuse regulatory burdens and fees for “taxes” since they degrade take-home pay in the same ways.

    Why not let market forces push toward electronic medical records instead of a gov’t mandate?  Electronic records are yet another step toward standardization for a single payer health care system.

    Examine the transition from Roman Republic to Roman Empire.  You will find many of the same kinds of problems that led to the loss of a Republic then as are happening now.

    Moving farmers off their own land and into the city was mistake #1. Mistake #2 was keeping them unemployed and disenfranchised   Mistake #3 was going to bread & circuses to keep them fm rioting. Mistake #4 expanding the Empire’s boundaries to find a place to “park” landless legionnaires after their time of service.  Many of whom had formerly been sons of former farmers.

    Specifically, look at the Gracchus brothers, Cicero, Gaius Julius Caesar, and the 1st & 2nd triumvirant.  We have sown the same seeds of destruction of Republic, leaving only dictators to sort out the chaos.

    Men and women need meaningful work if they are to be genuinely productive and satisfied people.  Meaningful work employs them for their talents and ingenuity.  Anything less is dehumanizing.

    Welfare dehumanizes generation upon generation.  It has rotted out our cities fm inside.  Taking from one and giving to another makes both halves feel abused.  The one taken from knows he/she has had livelihood stolen.  The one given to knows he/she has not earned it, making them feel angry and dependent.  No adult wants to be treated like a child.  Welfare makes dependent children out of able adults.

    51 states: too much power in one person’s hands! and at the same time, it’s a loss of power of the people…
    This is not what the Founding Fathers had in their minds.

    Maybe Texas would do much better if would separate from “Obama’s USA” and just become a country of its own. And there are some other states too where people are like minded, could join Texas. The rest of USA is dummed, lost cause. 

    The army no longer allowed to fly the American flag, Obama replaced it with something that looks more like a Muslim flag. I wonder, how long will it take for him to replace the flag that flies over the White House?

    It’s time to separate….

    It couldn’t be that small business owners get taxed and regulated to death by the government or anything could it? Do you own a business? If not then shut up! I have family and friends struggling to keep their business afloat due to government regulation and taxation, they were doing good until this administration screwed them. My step-mother owns a huge farm that employs quite a few people who’d beg to differ with your opinion. She has gone from just over $1,000,000 in personal assets to barely making ends meet, as she gets taxed and regulated heavily at both ends, she let’s less-fortunate people live in the various houses around the farm with the only condition being they keep an eye on things for her and pay their electric bills. She has had to invest most of her wealth into just keeping the once-prosperous farm running, while the IRS desperately tries to find a way to accuse her of wrongdoing. They repeatedly audit her even though they have never found any evidence she did anything wrong. She has to pay lawyers to constantly fight them so she can afford to keep paying her workers. Don’t tell me he’s lying, you don’t have a clue with your head all the way up your a$$!

    Helen, when you burn in hell for being a false prophet I hope you remember all the things you did to insult God.

    Romans 13:1: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for
    there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have
    been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resist authority resists what God has
    appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.”

    Many of the blind voted for the status quo, in voting an incumbent president back in. None of these people realize that Obama will not stop there. it will be slowly found out that the number will be need to be lowered to 200,000.00 then  a little latter to 100,000. then not long afterwards 30,000. then what will finally destroy what is left of free enterprise, 18,000 a year. will have to pay 95% of their paycheck to support the government and all of the entitlement holders, (not that entitlement holders stop with only one identity, they need several to get more checks!). Socialist-Democrats want everyone to live in equalized slavery to the Government. Everyone is supposed to live in hopeless misery, enslaved financially to the dictator and his immediate favorites.
     This was the last ‘free’ election.

  • greywolfrs

    Well, I guess there are a lot of demoralized Conservatives today, but it’s time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and keep fighting the good fight. Here’s the thing, we MUST change. Our message has to be about freedom, not about “freedom as long as we agree with it”. This is the way we can stop this madness and restore this country back to the way our founding fathers intended it to be. The problem is simple, when we allow the government to take one freedom from someone else simply because we do not agree with it, the government takes 10 freedoms. When we allow the government to take 10 freedoms, the government takes 100. Pretty soon, they have taken so much that we find ourselves in the position we are in today. Conservatives may not agree with things like drugs, prostitution or gay marriage, but if we allow people to be truly free, we can get out of this mess we are in.
    The Republicans have failed Conservatives, again. They keep putting up candidates that talk about being Conservative, but never turn out to be Conservative. How many times are we going to allow this happen? I believe it’s time for Conservatives to embrace the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party is preaching the same thing I hear Conservatives talking about, small government/big freedom. Republicans are not delivering that, but the Libertarian Party can and will. Republicans have changed into something I do not recognize. The Republican party is no longer my dad’s party. If he were alive today, he would be pissed. Then again, if we had that generation alive today, we would never be in this situation in the first place. It’s time to embrace real freedom and we need to do it by another name. The Libertarian Party offers us this chance. We can expedite the process by doing it this way. Trying to change the Republican Party from within will take too long and I do not believe we have that much time. We have a two-year reprieve; only because the House is still a Republican majority, but that could change in two years. If the House goes back to the Democraps in two years, think of the problems that will cause.
    In conclusion, that is why the time is NOW. It’s time to realize that this is the quickest solution.

    The massive “welfare state” the government has created is beginning to see its finances dried up.  Here’s the next step:  The government will create jobs, but the workers will be inmates from jails, not paid, and will be slaves of the government.  The USA will be a slave owner, but the slaves will be of all races, sexes and religions.  This is what most despots of the world have done, working people to death because it is cheaper and faster to bring a nation under control.

    Remember the death camp slogans of the Third Reich: “Arbeit macht frei” (Work makes freedom).

    Oh, yes: The holocaust never happened, which is why buildings and wrought iron gateworks still have these signs, not only in Germany, but in countries Germany occupied during WWII.

    Just to make it clear that I don’t consider it to be God’s fault that American voters elected a socialist, I want to say in brief how I currently understand God’s will regarding evil acts.
    God allows people to do what is evil. If he didn’t, they wouldn’t have free will.
    Further, without the dynamics of his action in them, they could not change from their ability to perform a bad action to actually doing it. 
    However, doing what is evil is their choice; they are responsible for it. 

    (See “Religious Vocation: an Unnecessary Mystery” by Fr. R. Butler., chapter 4.) 

    And although they intended an evil, God intended a good result. 

    (See Genesis, 50:20.)

    Hi.I cannot believe this Marxist,leftest,give away free person has got back in again.
    In a way you are lucky,and i will explain why.We had a labour government for 13 years that almost bankrupted us.In the same way you are going the same way.Thye destroyd the private sector,created millions of not profit government jobs,we are now paying the price for that.
    I feel for you i really do.4 more years of this and you wont get out of it.We over here are seeing some light,but not a lot,and the masses hate it,because they had the gravy train for 13 years,handouts,for this and that,and now that’s all stopping they hate it.Its the something for nothing Marxist way.
    Its a great idea,until you run out of other peoples money.
    I feel for you i really do.

    God bless people like you Claree, and this is the problem. Those that voted for Obama are not the ones that start small businesses, they are not the risk takers, the hard workers, because they don’t have any ambition!  So, now that these uneducated idiots voted in Obama, let’s see them go out and start their own businesses, and carry the country like people like you, my dad, my father in -law. They won’t, and why? They don’t want to work for it, and they don’t have the work ethic. Instead, they want it all handed to them.  I am sorry for the small businesses, many family members do physical labor (carpentry, construction, etc.) and work the xsses off, only to pay mega taxes!!  I say small businesses put a sign that says “I voted for Romney” and I will only shop and use their businesses!!  Entitlement mentality…we tried to to tell them so.  Ignorance people never learn!!  While you are working, they are watching stupid sticom  TV or on their crackberries!!!  God bless you for all you have done, and keeping this country running, I thank you!!

    This is so sad, but I believe it.  The idiots that voted in Obama are clueless on the impact!  Maybe they plan on being small business owners themselves now, and make a contribution, take a risk like they have.  Ha!  Fat chance, that would take ambition, hard work, risk, it’s easier to let someone else do that and pay all the taxes. They have no clue what they have just done!!!  God bless small business owners….I will support those that have signs that say “I voted for Romney!”

    And God bless your step mom  and it breaks my heart to hear this, but, this is the type of person Obama supporters are crushing, and in the end, themselves too!    They don’t have ANY business, other than reaping the hard work of those that do!  They don’t start them, because they don’t have ambition, nor the work ethic, or the ambition!  Let’s see them support the country w/all the new businesses they are going to start up.  It’s a sad time for Americans who love this country, and worked to keep her free.  I feel we are at a point of no return because of this new generation and “entitlement mentality”.  They are clueleass as to what they have just done to our country, and to themselves.

    I”m so sorry, and thank you for serving our country!  They just don’t get it, and don’t have the love or work ethic for this country.  Let them start the businesses now!  God bless you. I have several family members in small businesses as well, and they say the same.  People in America don’t care about America anymore, and they don’t want to work for anything.  Don’t they know it was the small businesses keeping this country running, and the ones giving to charity?  They can fend for themselves from now on, because this is what they voted for.  THANK YOU for protecting us, and making us proud!

    @Tower, I never said anything in my post about taxes. People’s tax rates are different, and I have never paid any more than 40% in taxes, which is still too high, but still less than half of my income.  But for discussion sake, let’s suppose that I do pay 50% in taxes to the federal government – about 11.5% of that 50% (5.75% of my income) goes to Social Security; about 

    4.6% (2.3%) goes to welfare; about 3.5% (1.75%) goes to disability payments and 0.7% (0.35%) goes to unemployment.  Totaled, that’s about 22% of my federal taxes “going to people who don’t work”, which includes senior citizens, not 50%.@Liberate, so are you saying the tyranny and dictatorship of any person serving as president or just Obama?  Where are your facts to support your statement?  Last I checked, we have free speech in this country, which allows me to express my point of view and ask questions.  Tyranny and dictatorships tend to suppress differing points of view.

    @Chet McPherson The 11.5% that was SUPPOSED to go to SS has been raided and the structure is unsustainable..something the president won’t address because of his lack of leadership. 4.6% to welfare which now has a definition of WORK that is absurd…another thanks to Obama..so a large portion of that is also being wasted. .7% to unemployment that is so long now because of a crummy Obama economy and the nanny state mentality that is making it run rampant and bankrupting that program also…another failure. Need I go on about WHY we don’t agree with the tax level…because so much is WASTED! Not because we don’t want to do our FAIR share….its just far from fair.  As far as Tyranny and dictatorships go…you only have to listen to hear overwhelming evidence of these things. You and many others only choose to hear what you want to hear.  Learn a little bit about world history and you will see how “dictators” come to be…it isn’t bye putting a sign on top of their head….take a look at how Saddam Hussein did it….Their people never saw it coming.  I am not saying Obama is performing to THAT level…but to a lessor degree…but in more insidious ways.

    This is a critical time for the Republican Party. They are outnumbered by far. As taxes are raised on the “rich” aka job creators in America (owners of hotels, casinos, corporations, etc) more people will be fired. Many of these newly unemployed people will jump on the government gravy-train, beginning their dependency for more government crack and entitlements. Thus, another future vote for the next Democrat nominee in 2016. Trickle up poverty. Trickle down Tyranny. Our country is dying a slow, steady death and the unaware are just that.

    rigobertosanches – Unfortunately you really don’t know much about economics…so here’s a hint. When you refer to the “rich” – the upper 1% – who pay 70% of taxes in this country – these are the guys that hire and employ millions of Americans, who in return, pay taxes to support lazy butts like yourself. 

    When these people get fed up – and it’s not worth their time to work anymore – guess what happens to people like you – THERE’S NO MORE MONEY – and you…you then realize that you were just a TOOL, who participated in electing someone who doesn’t give a care “rats a$$” about you or your family, but only wants your vote…welcome to reality!

    @Guest so resorting immediately to innuendo and name calling is your response to a post trying to have a civil discourse?  I see this same type of response from people on the left and on the right.  It is not wonder that both sides can’t even have an open discussion on differing views if they start off with name calling and being disrespectful of the other person’s POV.

    @madinillinois:disqus , actually, I do.  I have a Master’s degree in Econ.  First of all, it is the small companies, not the 1% who are the main job providers in the US.  I agree that they employee millions, but these are typically the CEOs of the Fortune 500.  I am one of those making > $250K a year, so I would hardly qualify as a “lazy butt”, but I do appreciate the name calling, as it supports my belief that people on both sides, the left and the right, who immediately resort to name calling and innuendo can’t bring themselves to the point of even having an open dialog on the issues and trying to see where we have things in common, just like the demos and repubs representing us.

    @visualj, thanks for your reply.  While I agree that it gets raided by both sides, that is not my point. My response was to the individual who says that 50% of their income goes to lazy people who don’t work, which is not true. Next, what do you mean that Obama changed the definition of work?  Do you mean the States seeking a federal waiver from work-participation rules, the waivers that were requested by demo and repub governors alike? Lastly, I agree with you about the unemployment going on too long.

    That depends.  Single-payer systems may contract for healthcare services from private organizations (as is the case in Canada) or may own and employ healthcare resources and personnel (as is the case in the UK). The term “single-payer” thus only describes the funding mechanism—referring to health care financed by a single public body from a single fund—and does not specify the type of delivery, or for whom doctors work. Although the fund holder is usually the state, some forms of single-payer use a mixed public-private system.

As for guest…name calling for a differing point of view, eh?  Again, no evidence of my leanings, as I haven’t stated any leanings one way or another other than questions. My point in my postings is that we can’t even have a civil open discourse about ANYTHING here without name calling or innuendo.  How can we even start without first realizing and respecting a differing view point.  I cannot change anyone’s opinion, nor can anyone change my opinion.  But maybe…just maybe…we both can be open minded enough to THINK about the other person’s point of view.

    @Tower, first, a lame duck sessions occurs when Congress meets after the president’s successor has been elected, but before the successor’s term begins.  Second, I think that you’re referring to when Congress is in recess when the president gets stuff done with out them like appointing judges (recess appointment).  However, there aren’t things “passed” while in recess.  ”Pass” assumes that others voted on it, such as bills. What specifically are you referring to?
