That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Financial Regulation Bill:

Just to summarize, you're for the same neo-liberal nonsense that destroyed the country in the first place.

Are you quoting Bill Maher or George Soros?

I can go with that and replace taxes with user fees and tolls perhaps?

There must be a way to finance a government at the very least for maintaining peaceful relations, conducting a military, providing for a national security, and a court system. We got along fine without taxes before the 17th amendment and we'll get along fine after it. However, we still need a way to fund a government.

So why not have spending cuts? My actual belief is that taxes are a necessary evil, but they should be as low as physically possible for individuals, and levy slightly higher taxes on businesses. Still a flat tax across the board, though. I believe that, along with this, there must be spending cuts. In every department. Healthcare, education, welfare, infrastructure AND defense. You can't say you support spending cuts except defense, because that's like saying "yeah I hate people who smoke cigarettes, but I'm gonna go chew some tobacco now." It's the same thing, but with a different name. Higher defense spending leads to bigger Government, which is why I'm so apprehensive about Government in the first place--it's inherently destined to become bigger and crave more power, which ultimately leads to oppression.

In all seriousness other than trade policy I agree with the gist of this. Nice seeing another national sales tax supporter.

Spending cuts and how about legalizing marijuana? Put a big tax on it and make it legal at age 21l. Apply the same laws for driving that we do with alcohol. Many dealers would be out of busineess.
