I agree, but in order to provide security for the nation, some funding is required. While enemies continue to mount terror attacks on us we must properly fund a military that is superior to them. All other departments-agencies are just nice to have.
I prefer not killing people, and no taxes.
Good luck with that! lol
I know it seems impossible. They make you believe it's impossible so they'll keep profiting from war. But think about it - you think keeping all you've earned and not killing people is impossible? It should be MANDATORY! Don't steal, don't kill.
Yes - the world would be a much better place without the killing.but until then, the individual must protect themselves from the killers. This means taking a strong stand against those who kill. This requires action not complacency.
You're acting on fear - all is well. Look outside your window and see for yourself. Now, plan from this. You need gardens, not bombs.
I am looking out my window and I see many who already have the bombs. And most of them have already used some against others. This is not fear. It is fact. When the risk is present action is required.
You do not see people with bombs out your window. And besides, 100% of your income tax payment goes to pay back interest on money loaned to the govt by the Fed. You want to keep justifying paying wealthy bankers for a false sense of security? I don't
As a security operative I see many things out my window.The world is filled with risk. Many pray that is not but the realist knows it is.

This 'fair tax' hurts the poor far more than the wealthy. The lower your income, the greater the portion that has to be spent on the necessities. The wealthy could simply save more cutting the total tax they pay.
The fair tax would eliminate all disparity and provide enough funds to make the nation a money-making entity. The excess funds would then be distributed in a reverse income value matrix. Lower income levels would then be paid a dividend for working
Much of the risk you talk about in reply to Lee Tea is American made. Blow back. If America were to become ethical and abide by Golden Rule, then the planet would be much more peaceful. Globalist selfishness creates blow back.
Well we already pay the 8% SS and taxes on everything we buy so I think 12% is a little high and just think if all the millionaires and billionaires are paying a fair share there won't be any money worries. It would be fair.
The 8% SS would be eliminated there would only be the 12%.
Currently the top 15% pay over 85% of all collected taxes but the top 10% shouldn't be getting any breaks. They are the ones paying next to nothing.
Elitist conscription is generated in a scaling tax because it provides a false sense of superiority for those at the top of the scale. We see this routinely in actors, actresses, and sports figures who decry they are not to be treated as commoners.
Well considering they end up paying more money, for lack of better words, who gives a damn what they think it means? It means they have a greater interest in the welfare of the country.
