"Slick-Willie" Principle Used With Little Affect
The "Big Lie" often attributed to "Slick-Willie" Clinton in recent times is actually a quote from Vladimir Lenin:
"A lie told often enough becomes the truth."
Although not nearly as 'slick' as "Slick-Willie," "Clown Prince" obama is attempting to achieve the Clinton level of success with various versions of the 'Big Lie.' When obama's "Big Lie" of the moment isn't gaining traction, he slides to other obfuscations, i.e., insinuation and implication. When his anti-small business, anti-entrepreneurial class-warfare statements:
"....if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. If you've got a business--you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
didn't work, the "Clown Prince" was forced to revert back to his 'rich-against-poor-rhetoric. Those in the public forum who take the time to look into the facts, this verbage doesn't work any better than obama's anti-business rants.
Let's take a look The Tax Foundation's Fiscal Facts as compared to obama's lies, insinuations and implications:
1) The top 1% of income earners (1,410,710 souls) pay 40.42% of all US income taxes.
2) The top 5% of income earners (7,053,549 souls) pay 60% of all US income taxes.
3) The top 10% of income earners as a whole, pay 71.22% of all US income taxes.
4) The BOTTOM 50% of income earners as a whole pay ONLY 2.89% of all US income taxes.
FURTHER EXAMINATION reveals:
5) That top 1%? Those 1,410,710 souls collectively earned $2,008,259,000,000 [over 2 Trln] and collectively paid $450,926,000,000 [450 Bln].
6) That top 1%? They now pay more total federal income tax than the BOTTOM 95% of income earners.
7) That top 10%? Those poor souls collectively earned $4,227,839,000,000 [over $4.227 Trln] and collectively paid nearly half of the $1,115,504,000,000 [over $1.115 Trln] in total federal income tax receipts.
All these facts; all these numbers?!? They really don't amount to squat! The voting public has become so fatigued by being constantly hammered by the obama "Big Lies," their thought processes shut down when it comes to more and more repetitions of both obama's "Big Lies" as well as the HONEST NUMBERS and federal FACTS!!
