CEO Threatens to Fire Employees If Obama Is Reelected and Raises Taxes
This is rich!

[link to newsbusters.org]

To All My Valued Employees,

As most of you know our company, Westgate Resorts, has continued to succeed in spite of a very dismal economy. There is no question that the economy has changed for the worse and we have not seen any improvement over the past four years. In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: The economy doesn't currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration. Of course, as your employer, I can't tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn't interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose. In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best. [...]

Now, the economy is falling apart and people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn't. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits, but the price I've paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the costs of running a business have gotten out of control, and let me tell you why: We are being taxed to death and the government thinks we don't pay enough. We pay state taxes, federal taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, payroll taxes, workers compensation taxes and unemployment taxes. I even have to hire an entire department to manage all these taxes. The question I have is this: Who is really stimulating the economy? Is it the Government that wants to take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not, or is it people like me who built a company out of his garage and directly employs over 7000 people and hosts over 3 million people per year with a great vacation?

Obviously, our present government believes that taking my money is the right economic stimulus for this country. The fact is, if I deducted 50% of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, that's what happens to me. [...]

Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate business, not kill it. However, the power brokers in Washington believe redistributing wealth is the essential driver of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change they want.

[[ Editors' Note: Black actress Stacey Dash defends Romney after facing racist attacks: ‘I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character’ ]]

So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.

So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn't? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of protecting and saving your job. While the media wants to tell you to believe the "1 percenters" are bad, I'm telling you they are not. They create most of the jobs. If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the "1%"; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country.

You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

Signed, your boss,

David Siegel

Re: CEO Threatens to Fire Employees If Obama Is Reelected and Raises Taxes
It won't stop the brainwashed masses from voting O or D across the board. Bereft of critical thinking skills this group has no concept of how free markets work and actually believe government can create prosperity.

The irony is that whenever you try to 'redistribute' wealth, your economy tanks and all that wealth disappears impoverishing everyone except the ultra elite who run things. That's why, for example, whenever they've tried to raise capital gains taxes, tax revenue goes down.

However Obama said it's necessary to do this so that everyone pays their 'fair share'. So he doesn't actually care about the economy and he does this even though our 1 percenters pay a larger precentage of our tax burden than any other industrialized country.

Thanks....It goes much deeper than this, but this account will be very prevalent in the coming months - probably even if Obama loses. It'll take the some time to correct the damage done, but we MUST ensure he loses if we ever hope to recoup anything.

Another four years of this insanity (even with a Republican controlled House) will ensure our downfall.

This is already a given among small business owners. If Talibama gets re-elected, I'm cashing out of two business, closing the doors, and will be retiring.

And if Romney gets elected, I'm cashing out of two business, closing the doors, and will be moving to the state which is most solvent.

Probably North Dakota. Mainly white, hard working, solvent, and strong State banks owned by the citizens of the state. If SHTF, Canada is a 40 min. drive and Minnesota is wide open.

Well startups are at an all time low because no one can start a business with this tax uncertainty and with the huge costs of obamacare, so I'm not surprised at this.

However I should warn you that N. Dakota is where most of our land based ballistic nuclear missiles are. So guess what happens when Obama's dear friends China and Russia decide to take us out? N. Dakota will receive a full blanketing cluster of nuclear doom. The cloud from this will spread all the way to the eastern seaboard and kill the rest of us from there.

Other than that I wouldn't be alarmed.

TPTB are our enemy. The Russia, China stuff was all a farce so that the military industrial espionage complex could pump trillions into under ground complexes, private armies, and robbery & looting of Wall Street and the Central Banks.


The globalist PTB do not care about borders, they were friends all along even during WW1 and WW2. The sheeple were the suckers and they were the ones who paid for the price of two wars that never changed anything except epmtying out countries art, gold, and currencies.

There will be no nuke war. They have weapons that are much more effective but they won't be used accross borders...they will be used here, against us...by the people who would rather kill everything than give up control and power.

It won't stop the brainwashed masses from voting O or D across the board. Bereft of critical thinking skills this group has no concept of how free markets work and actually believe government can create prosperity.

The irony is that whenever you try to 'redistribute' wealth, your economy tanks and all that wealth disappears impoverishing everyone except the ultra elite who run things. That's why, for example, whenever they've tried to raise capital gains taxes, tax revenue goes down.

However Obama said it's necessary to do this so that everyone pays their 'fair share'. So he doesn't actually care about the economy and he does this even though our 1 percenters pay a larger precentage of our tax burden than any other industrialized country.

That's not a threat.. it's the reality that's been imposed on us. There is no incentive to even try, what's not taken by the government is stolen by Wall Street, gauged at the pumps, gorged on by conglomerates, stabbed at by the medical industry & what little is left gets stolen by crackheads while you're trying to post a sign telling people they need to push the door instead of pulling it.. we're done, this experiment is over.

And this, you see, the grand plan... either way leads to the same place, just pick your poison. We can have Neo-feudalism with a socialist/communist Marxist flair like the guy in there now will do. The serfs will have a thousand tons of rocks on the backs of each man, to which the lords do not worry themselves of.

Or we could have Neo-feudalism with a fascist flair like the other guy would lead us to. But, maybe at least still some small business and enterprise. But, I'm not holding my breath.

There is no capitalism in this country anymore, there is nothing of what made the country great, it has been bastardized beyond a paternity test....

I'll vote for the other guy, but, we're not allowed to vote for him...

"The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society — and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic"..Erich Fromm
