Other things they don't talk about:
1. How they control the public school systems and what is taught to children in these schools.
2 and 3. How they have poisoned the food system for the bulk of Americans with cancerous, obesity inducing, toxic, diabetes causing and addicting ingredients which feeds a heath and pharmaceutical industry that no longer researches cures, but drugs that treat the symptoms of these diseases only. A cured patient is no longer a paying customer.
4. How they've manipulated the government to lower taxes on the wealthy, lower import taxes so they can ship jobs overseas and bring in these cheaply made products they produce overseas and sell them at the same premium prices they used to sell for when made in America.
5. How they actually control the government and use it for the benefit of their businesses, use tax dollars for their own private tax-free loans if not just take it without ever paying the money back and how their pawns make cuts to every program for the poor to ensure this steady cash flow to the wealthy continues.
Taxes on wages (in any form – flat or progressive) are the greatest evil of our American Republic. When government is free to steal from you, there are no limits to waste and abuse in government. If a person chooses to work extra hours or two jobs in order to better provide for themselves or their family, they should not be penalized, but that is what happens. The more you make by working harder and longer, the more money is stolen from you, and given to those who spend their lives living off the hard work of others.
The revenue the government needs to provide legitimate constitutional services should be obtained primarily from a national sales tax instead of a tax on wages. All would pay based on consumption, the more you spend the more you pay. The more luxury you surround yourself with, the more you pay. Your choice. A national sales tax system would capture money spent by criminals and by illegal aliens who currently pay near zero in taxes. There would of course need to be exemptions: Cars (already have a federal excise tax) Primary Residence/Rental Properties (vacation homes would be subject to tax/rental profit would be taxed) Fresh Food (Preprocessed foods and prepared meals would be taxed – only fresh/fresh frozen/canned goods would be exempt) Insurance Premiums, Health Care & Certified Education.
Adding another layer of tax to a business would not be fair. Businesses would need to be compensated by keeping a portion of the tax to cover the expense of collection and reporting. A percentage of .20 to .05 would be fair.
You fricking got that right. 45% of my earnings last year went to taxes.
A simple fact is that many people are poor because they continue to have child after child after child that they cannot afford. It's simple mathematics really.
I went to college and paid for it myself by working full time throughout my four years because I realized that I needed an education, not welfare, to get ahead in life.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market began the last week of July on a quiet note with the S&P 500 ending less than a point above its flat line. Like the benchmark index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (+0.1%) also posted a slim gain, while the Russell 2000 (-0.5%) and Nasdaq Composite (-0.1%) lagged throughout the session.
The major averages were awakened from their weekend slumber with an opening retreat that pressured the S&P 500 below its 20-day moving average (1975). Even though ... More
