The GOP tax proposal brought cries of increasing the deficit, but who or what do we owe the deficit?
Shouldn't you know what a deficit is and how it is created? More importantly the trillions of dollars in that deficit is owed to???
We cannot confuse Tax Cuts with increased "costs " , that is a very partisan Democratic spenders ,typical answer whenever they have a nightmare about tax cuts . The point will be having a federal government that spends less AND takes in less tax revenue .

It's numbers , anyone can figure that out .

First, this is not my idea. It was presented by an author on a web-site that concentrates on economics.The proposal is this. Do not attempt to curtail gun ownership rights. Rather levy a federal tax on all fire-arms and ammunition. The tax, much like the gasoline tax, would only affect those with...
