The Plan
July 8, 2019
You should know that some powerful people like radical leftwing billionaire George Soros, and others who believe as he does, have a plan for your life.  

Of course, they would never state that plan, because many Americans would recoil from it.  However, the plan has been largely accepted in many parts of the world, even if the folks enduring it don’t exactly realize what the deuce is going on.
So here’s how it goes: “inequality” is common the world over.  The relatively very few who are affluent have much more than those folks who, for whatever reason, have not been able to compile assets.  Therefore, an authoritative government must correct this wrong by making it extremely difficult for any person to become wealthy.  As for those who already have money and property, they must pay their “fair share.”   In true words that means the government must punish them by confiscating as much cash as possible from the “haves.”
Led by Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, this plan has now been embraced by the Democratic Party.  Joe Biden gives lip service to parts of the plan but really doesn’t buy it.  Therefore, Biden must be destroyed by the cadres who endorse the plan.  

That process is well underway.
If you would like to see what may await you if the plan is implemented in America, you might travel to Munich in southern Germany.  Other than the language and old buildings, Munich could be an American city.  Most folks live in small houses or apartments, go to work everyday, have nice cars and drink alcohol on a regular basis.
But look beneath the surface and you can clearly see the results of the plan - people are dependent on the government in Berlin and there is little upward mobility.
The German economy is vibrant but workers cannot accumulate much money to invest, to make their assets grow.  That’s because of taxes.  Ready?

German workers in Munich pay 8 percent of their income in local taxes.  Then Berlin comes in for its piece: 12 percent “health” tax for government run medical care, 19 percent value added tax (VAT) on just about everything you buy, and an income tax that ranges from 14 to 45 percent of your gross wages.
Add it up, and German workers cannot save significant money or improve themselves much economically.  Thus, they stay where they are, year after year after year.  Today’s children will likely be in the same economic circumstance as their grandparents.
The result is that almost every German is the same materially. There are few ostentatious displays of wealth in Munich.  There is not much “inequality” on display either.
The folks accept the plan because it offers security.  After you pay the tax, medical care is free.  Pensions are guaranteed.  Housing is modest and subsidies will be provided if you can’t or won’t work.  The addicted are supported but barely.  Not much homelessness.
But forget about ever accumulating enough money to buy that chalet in Gstaad or a villa on the Riviera.  That is not going to happen in the working precincts.  The German government makes it impossible.
That is the vision of the present day Democratic Party in America.  From sea to shining sea, we will all be similar: dependent on Washington for medical care and retirement entitlements; happy to be secure with what we are allowed to keep after the government decides how much to take from us.  On paper, “inequality” will be banished forever.
That is the Plan and it does not include gold stars for achievement.  Most media and many American citizens are solidly behind it.  Will it prevail?
