    here is the reason why there is a $1.4T dollar deficit and it has to do with the phony SS trust fund. the problem is there is no trust fund to take money out of to pay for SS. instead the difference in payroll tax and mandatory spending is paid out of the total tax revenue. here are the numbers from 2022;

    total spending = $6.3T
    mandatory spending = $4.6T
    discretionary spending = $1.7T
    total taxes = $5T
    individual taxes = $2.8T
    payroll tax= $1.7T
    corporate taxes = $0.5T

    deficit = total spending – total taxes
    deficit = $6.3T – $5T = $1.3T

    this agrees with the deficit when calculated like this;
    tax for discretionary spending = total tax – mandatory
    tax left over = $5T – $4.6T = $0.4T

    deficit = discretionary – tax left after mandatory
    deficit = $1.7T – $0.4T = $1.3T

    the SS gap = mandatory – payroll tax
    = $4.6T – $1.7T = 2.9T gap
    the $2.9T gap is paid out of the total tax revenue.

    this shows that there is no trust fund to pay for SS and it is being payed out of the total tax revenue. fix the SS paycap and raise corporate taxes to balance the budget. spending cuts are not going to work.

    Yeah you've invited mobs to play with politics, you reap what you sow. That or cooperate with the Democrats. Smarter voters already realize that their Republican party is now mob party and the Republican ratings are always very high because not many people are left soon their ratings for anything will be 98% agree with voting for convict, 99% thinks the election was rigged etc because probably only 20000 real Republican voters are left 😁

    Treatise on the White Liberal

    Inasmuch as the object of the White liberal's resentment typically represents those traditionally valued, thus culturally conserved, teleological standards – e.g., health, beauty, reason, courage, etc. – against which he stands in ontological opposition (hence his reliably repulsive inner as well as outer formations), he not only despises such standards themselves, but, indeed, desires to destroy the very civilization hitherto sustained by them, and from which, notwithstanding the decades-long cultural degeneration wrought through such nihilistic desire, they, albeit in recently decreasing degrees, still derive.

These words are true and worthy, he who has ears to hear let him hear.)

    “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

    Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, verse 3.

    “And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 21, verse 8 to 11.

    “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 21, verse 25 to 28.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

    Gospel of John, chapter 3, verse 16 to 18.

    “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”

    “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

    Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 8.

    “knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”

    Second Peter, chapter 3, verse 3 to 4.

    “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

    First Thessalonians chapter 5, verse 3.

    “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

    First Thessalonians, chapter 4, verse 16 to 17.

    “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

    First Corinthians, chapter 15, verse 52.

    Gospel of Luke, chapter 17, verse 34 to 36.

    Desert wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has cost America over trillions of Dollars, therefore whoever supports foreign wars it does not matter whether he is a Democrat or Republican, the fact is that person does not care about fiscal responsibility or deficit of America.
    therefore whoever supports foreign wars must shut the F up about deficit.
