Decision 2010 Can’t Get Here Soon Enough

During the last week or so I’ve been talking to a lot of my neighbors and friends about the upcoming November 2nd elections. Yes, we talked about some of the candidates and who we would be voting for, but mostly we talked about how sick and tired we are with all these negative ads on television!

As most political commentators will tell you, “the majority of voters had their minds made up weeks ago.” So, like many of you I’ve been asking myself why so many of these candidates are spending all this money on television attacking their opponents with the election almost 1 week away? The answer to this questions seems to be that many of these campaigns are trying to spend the rest of their campaign cash–leaving nothing on the table. In addition, the top tier campaigns like the Reid v. Angle and the Heck v. Titus race are trying to sway any last minute undecided voters. However, I find it very hard to imagine there are very many undecided voters left.

You would think that I wouldn’t be surprised about all the happenings in an election after spending over 15 years of my life involved with politics–that’s not the case! The negative campaigning and lack of discussion on the issues hasn’t been more prevalent than this campaign season. Candidates have chosen personal attacks and examples of “foot in mouth syndrome” to make their points on why we should vote for them. How cynical of me to think that candidates should be talking about the important issues facing out state. How naïve can I be to think that candidates should be presenting to the people of Nevada real solutions and ideas for fixing our job crisis, education crisis, budget crisis, infrastructure crisis, high energy cost crisis, etc., etc.

The reality is that we’re running out of time for any of these candidates to make the case that they have better ideas than their opponent. In fact, they won’t be doing anything over the next week other than trying to demonize their opponents. We’ll get another week of negative ads and character assassinations from bloggers and media outlets. With all this negativity you can understand why decision 2010 can’t get here soon enough!

Death Tax Set To Kill Americans

As 2010 begins to tick down and we get closer to the new year–so does the American tax burden. If you haven’t heard yet, the Bush tax cuts along with the moratorium on the Death Tax will expire on December 31, 2010. During an election year when governments out of control spending has been highlighted by so many candidates–this tax will certainly be on the minds of many voters this coming November.

Just to give you an idea of what will happen beginning on January 1, 2011, if your family has an estate valued at more than $1 million dollars you may see a levy of up to 55%. I know, this is some pretty shocking stuff, but it’s our reality! Pretty sad to think that wealthy Americans that die before the end of this year will be dancing in their graves for saving their family members so much money!

A notable American that died this year was New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner–who has an estate estimated to be over $1 billion dollars. While his family, friends, and many fans were sad to see him go…his death in 2010 saved his estate hundreds of millions of dollars.

Republicans have been talking for years about the negative effects of the tax and spend liberals. In today’s society we are seeing the ramifications of out of control government spending. Instead of tightening their belts in Washington, D.C., they just want more of our hard earned money! Yes, Washington, D.C. wants more of our money so they can pay their bills and spend more of our money…pretty sick I say!

Last month columnists J.D. Longstreet of The Silent Majority wrote this: “…yes, the wealthiest still have money. Maybe not as much as they did before the recession hit us so hard, but they still have an ample supply. But they are not spending it on plant expansions, new operations, purchasing new equipment, building up their inventory, etc., etc. When that money they are sitting on is static, when it is not working, then it is not creating jobs As a result Americans can’t find work.”

This commentary makes my point that we shouldn’t cut off the hand that feeds us. Inherently, big companies who get hammered with taxes and regulations have the benefit of expensive lawyers, accountants, and strategists. The first thing many of these companies do is find out where they can cut in order to minimize the negative impact on their bottom-line. Often this results in downsizing, or in other terms LAYOFFS.

I hope that Congress decides to act before the end of this year to not only preserve the estates of the Americans who have been successful, but keep in place the tax cuts that are allowing companies to employ so many of our citizens. We can’t afford to have government increasing the tax burden–this will only add to our unemployment roles and run business and industry out of our nation. If we truly want to see our economy grow, we must offer incentives to businesses who stay here and hire our people. Hitting them with more taxes and increased regulations will only contribute to our demise!
