Our good friends in the U.N. want to add a financial transaction tax on “wealthy” nations, namely the U.S. and the eurozone.
We’re so wealthy, we borrow over 40 cents on every dollar. As our “wealthy” economies sink under the weight of debt and deficit, that’s just what we need – another tax. A financial transaction tax would stifle what is left of the free market.
This proposal is nothing more than worldwide socialism and it’s a bureaucratic nightmare.
It’s not a new idea, but the Marxists who want it are emboldened now. Joe Biden recently talked about the need for a global tax and he was speaking for Barack Obama. If Obama is re-elected, we will see a global tax. He will move this FORWARD when he has MORE FLEXIBILITY!
In the tale of Robin Hood, the wronged thief stole from the evil rich to help the kindly peasants who had their money stolen by those same evil rich people. News flash – not all poor people are good and not all rich people are evil AND it’s wrong to steal. In the U.N. tale, we have envious Marxists who want to redistribute our wealth globally as they seek our destruction.
We have to start separating the fairy tales from reality here before we lose all our freedoms.
I don’t know about you, but if I have to pay for everyone else in the world, I’m not working, I’m collecting entitlements. My mama didn’t raise no dope.

It would provide “a pragmatic tool for providing the means for governments to protect and fulfill the human rights of their people,” they said.
“The FTT is an opportunity for governments to move beyond rhetoric in their commitments to sustainable development, and to give flesh to their noble pronouncements of solidarity,” said one of the five, Virginia Dandan, whose title is “independent expert on human rights and international solidarity.”…Keep reading…
