A tax system to create jobs and slash trade deficits

We tax the manufacture of exports. We let imports come in tax free. Our tax system creates huge trade deficits and jobs overseas and kills jobs at home.

Donald Trump would renegotiate trade agreements. Hillary Clinton would oppose trade agreements she previously favored. Neither would solve the problems caused by a tax system that needs to be replaced, not reformed.

Instead of taxing payroll, corporate income and personal income, we need to tax consumption. Exports would become…

 ………First there were seventeen. At length, there was one. And now there is even a chance he may become President.

Donald Trump’s wildly improbable capture of the GOP nomination and rise toward the White House is surely the most significant upheaval in American politics since Ronald…

Renegotiate trade agreements or pass the FAIRtax?

Donald Trump says he would reduce America’s trade deficit and bring jobs back to the U.S. by renegotiating fair trade agreements.

The FAIRtax would do the same by taxing imports and eliminating taxes on exports.

The FAIRtax eliminates the 15.3% payroll tax, the corporate income tax, and tax compliance costs on goods manufactured in the U.S. and sold abroad. It imposes a 23% sales tax on goods imported into the U.S.

By taxing consumption instead of manufacturing, the…

You Decide: Tax Income OR Consumption?

Federal tax reform is straightforward.

Make a single decision: tax income OR consumption?

You just made all the following decisions as well.

Tax what you earn OR what you spend?

What you put into OR take out of the economy?

Wealth creation OR wealth depletion?

Jobs, work, savings, investment and entrepreneurship OR spending?

Dan, thanks for posting my comments on "bleeding"-------

Unfortunately,with most of these posts and all the groups on this web site-as well as Tea Party web sites, we are "preaching to the choir". Mostly those of like mind will log on. Wish there were a way to expose these fine comments to a much wider audience, including progressives and liberals!!
Cheers, Skip

I want to begin by commenting on Christopher Mullaney's post April 28. (I just joined this site and could not have commented sooner).
It is not as simple as it may appear. The original purpose of housing prisoners in Guantanamo was, I suspect, to avoid the U.S. Court system. It didn't work. The Supreme Court of the United States [SCOTUS] has ruled that the prisoners in Cuba have the same rights to sue in habeas corpus as anyone held in U.S. custody anywhere in the world. In my opinion (I am an attorney) the only rights unlawful combatants have is the right to humane treatment under the Geneva Convention. Since they are unlawful combatants they are not entitled to any other Geveva Convention protections since they do not abide by the Geneva Convention and commit war crimes routinely, i.e.beheading innocent civilians.

I am a member of my local Tea Parties and of Tea Party Patriots. I saw this website on one of the posts and decided to check it out. I love the idea of this website. Thank you for welcoming me.

Regarding Guantanamo;
I believe that the prison there should be closed. Further that the naval base should be phased out. The original need for extended bases in the Caribbean has long since been antiquated.
I think that when we fight a war we either have prisoners of war, criminals or displaced persons.
Prisoners of war are kept in detention camps until the end of the war. Which in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan will probably never happen.
Criminals are tried on the spot sentenced and the sentence is executed.
Displaced persons are moved to where ever they will be excepted.
The problem with keeping "enemy combatants" anywhere but their native soil is cost.
We don't need any more costs.
