With the passing of the new tax law, President Trump has given the American Taxpayer a true gift. Not only has he removed the excessive taxes on our businesses and hard-working Americans, but he’s lifted the burden of one of the most destructive taxes levied on American Farmers: The Estate Tax or also known as the Death Tax.
The American Farmer has been the foundation of which this country was built. Not only do they supply us with food, but they also feed the world. If not for the American Farmer, millions of people around the world would starve. Even China imports American grown products to feed their people for decades. However, there are those who do not respect the hard work and sacrifice the American Farmer gives of themselves to feed the world.
After eight LONG years of an Obama Presidency, and his lack of understanding of the importance of the great American tradition, we now have a President who is on the side of our farmers.
President Donald Trump is a champion for the American people. He loves this country and its people. He understands the precept of individual freedom and the right to have a business, work hard to build it, and then pass it on to our children. However, with the crushing Estate Tax, many American Farmers have found that dream quashed by the IRS. You see, upon the death of a parent, many families found themselves in a battle to keep the farm they’ve worked for years on the auction block just to pay the government a truly unamerican tax on top all the other taxes they pay every year.
Being in business is tough enough, without having the government force you to sell your livelihood just to pay them a tax on top of all the other taxes you’ve already paid. While a farm may have a certain cash value on paper, most farmers today do not have the money available to pay the exorbitant Estate tax forced on them by our government. It’s is not only immoral but is against everything, the Founding Fathers laid out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Rural America is a second thought to those in the big coastal cities and the lawmakers in Washington DC. Far too often those living in the cities have been corrupted by a lack of religion, liberal propaganda, drugs, and crime at all levels. However, Americans in what is often referred to as Flyover Country are the backbone of this great nation. They are the ones who live by the sweat of their brow, working for long hours to survive in a world that neither cares for or understands them. These Americans are GOD-FEARING and faithful to the Constitution, and the Founding Fathers VALUES AND PRINCIPLES. They don’t demand special treatment. They just want to lives their lives free from government intrusion through unjust regulations and excessive taxation.
Through President Trump’s vision of the American dream, the American Farmer and other American business owners will no longer have the strong arm of government regulations making it difficult to stay in business. However, the far greater gift is these same hard-working Americans will not be forced to sell their family business or farm to pay an immoral Estate Tax to the IRS.
President Trump has held true to his promise to Make America Great Again.
