I will tell you that many people don't believe that they make a difference. This is why they are ignored. My sister-in-law who has a very full time job told me I am too busy to start an organization. So I said join an effort. Then she said she was too busy to find a organization. She had to know exactly what the organization did and about the money. I told her to join our effort (which is not even solution specific and we take no 3rd party money) The name is too contenious. Register with a bogus name. It is too much trouble to set-up a new FB account. So I told she didn't want to do anything - and she told me that she writes her Congressman. And I told her honestly, you are not writing your Congressman you are writing a 19-year old intern. She doesn't believe that she makes a difference, and gets mild self enjoyment from writing letters of outrage and indignation.
There are a lot of people like her. She votes straight ticket Republican so no matter what they do, they will get her vote and money no less. She is part of the problem. She is willing to sit in a problem thinking that the Republican version of the problem is smaller than the Democratic version. She doesn't believe that she makes a difference.
The first thing that we can do - and this isn't just about SS - is believe that we make a difference.
True. I am sure you are a lovely soul because you are interested in the truth. I must insist that every tax paid is in some way connected to what we produce including individual taxes since the money we earn is included in the price of what we purchase. Since we must pay some taxes I would rather those companies making lots of money share in that process and if the playing field is competitive they may not be able to just add the tax to the price. I liked the whole system better when the anti-trust laws broke up large businesses.
I see no reason that Big businesses shouln't pay taxes. When capitalism started in this country by Presbyterians they believed that businesses had a social obligation to help the society from which they gained their largess. I don't see any mreason why we as tax payers should help big business to make more money. They should pay taxes, get no deductions especially for their machines wearing out , and they should get no susidies. The more the people in Washington give to capitalists the more the capitalists give money to them to win eloections.
Tom : I read your comment about the feds charging fees instead of the income tax.
I would rather have the feds have only one avenue to tax and that would be a flat rate income tax on the states gross income.
Then the feds cannot tax businesses or individuals, only the states' treasury.
This makes the state the primary taxing agency for the businesses and individuals within the state's boarders. Each state would have a different tax law so they would then be in competition with each other to attract businesses.
Also, the IRS would only have 50 income tax returns to process.
Yes, this cuts the IRS down to almost nothing.
I explain this all in my blog "Regaining Freedom".
