(just something a friend sent me... haven't checked the facts for myself)

Every year an independent tax watchdog group analyzes the average tax burden on Americans, and then calculates the "Tax Freedom Day". This is the day after which the money you earn goes to you, not the government.

This year, tax freedom day was April 11th. That's the earliest it has been since 1991. It's latest day ever was May 2nd, which occurred in 2000. Notice anything special about those dates?

Today John Kerry gave a speech in which he claimed Americans are actually paying more taxes under Bush, despite the tax cuts. He gave no explanation and provided no data for this claim.

Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John Kerry are wealthy men.

Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas.
Kerry owns 4 mansions, all worth several million dollars. (His ski resort home in Idaho is an old barn brought over from Europe in pieces. Not your average A-frame).

Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year; Kerry paid $90,000.

Does that sound right? The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has igured out a way to avoid paying his own.

(Note: Of course, as Kerry has stated, " I don't own [it], my family does."


Pass this on. Only 202 days until the election.

IF Kerry gets elected, I will dread the effect upon the Nation. And pray that a Republican Congress can overcome the negative effect upon the economy and the Nation that would be caused by that DULLARD Kerry.
But, the election of Effing Kerry is not likely, so we'll cross that shaky bridge if we come to it.
