It is the one year anniversary of Russia’s totally unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine. Millions have died at the hands of Russian storm-troopers. Ukraine sits proudly amidst smoke and destruction still waving the flag of freedom.
It is important to reiterate that there was definitely nothing provoking Russia and Putin essentially chose to attack Ukraine randomly with no actions by the United States or NATO threatening them or violating any agreements. Our government was just as shocked as we were.
As the war rages on and the brave men and women fight battle after battle, led into the fray by the tactical warrior President Zelensky, it becomes apparent that the Ukrainians need more guns and ammo.
The American people have started criticizing the billions in aid sent by the United States likely because they forget that Russia is the bad guy and Ukraine is the good guy.
So to avoid having to field criticism for aid packages, it might be time for the nation to talk about adding a new 7.5% sales tax on all goods that already have a federal sales tax applied. This tiny tax will go directly to Ukraine’s bank account so they can defend democracy and kill bad guys or whatever.
Rest assured – there has never been and will never be money laundering or corruption in Ukraine even if it was reported before the Russia invasion – that was all disinformation, probably from Trump.
In Ukraine, our hopes lie with the government pensions we are funding.
