The simplest, fairest, cheapest system of taxation is based
on the principle that all transactions of goods or service,
which benefit from the umbrella of economic stability,
should pay an equal fair share of the umbrella's cost
relative to the total transaction costs.
Some would call this a flat tax, or a value added tax, or a sales tax. However,
each of these exclude some economic transaction for political reasons. Politics
makes all of them unfair taxes, for the politicians have built in tax privileges
for a few at the expense of the polity, e.g., campaign welfare
for the money
dictators. Sadly, many people will object to tax reform because
they don't want to give up deductions little realizing that
their petty deductions enable the grand thefts through the tax
The simplest tax consists of setting the tax rate and collecting it on
all transactions with the tax being divided between the buyer and seller's
tax structure. Collecting and dividing taxes is a simple one-two process.
Collecting: Transactions involve checks, cash or barter instruments.
If a check transaction, the banking system will automatically debit the check
writer's account for the amount of the tax rate. If a cash or barter transaction,
the buyer uses either a telephone voice system or the
to report the transaction. By entering the involved parties' account numbers
and the transaction's value, the tax is automatically debited from the buyer(s)
checking account. Failure to report a transaction in value greater than one
in a fine equalling three times the value of the transaction.
Dividing the collected taxes. Half of the taxes go to the buyer's
tax hierarchy and half goes to the seller's tax hierarchy. The basic unit
of the tax hierarchy in America is the Congressional District. Fifty percent
(50%) of the tax stays in the district to be divided among the tax dependent
municipal units. Forty percent (40%) of the taxes goes to Federal Government.
This, however, can be adjusted through the democratic process. Ten percent
goes to a global problem-solving process.
This is a real time tax system that is fair, simple and efficient. The current
tax system in America consumes 6% of our human resources. This one would
take less than 1%, if that. We would reduce the workweek by 5% by eliminating
the inefficient tax system. Or, we could keep the 40 hour workweek and pay
more taxes to support the unemployed former tax workers. With this system,
there is no paper keeping headaches or cheating from confusion.
Internet hypocrites: It amazes me the number of people who express reservation
about on-line democracy because it might exclude some people. This flies
in the face of how the present system for habitual politicians excludes even
more people. The hypocrisy is found in how these people can in a few breaths
be found to express support for no internet tax even though it forces higher
taxes on those who don't own computers! Why is it thoughout
history, the new entrepreneurs of vast wealth, e.g., oil,
don't want to pay their taxes with the claim,
"Don't want to hurt the new industry." Sort of like the
richest kid in the family not wanting to pay part of
the family reunion costs because the family really wouldn't
want to reduce the wealth of its richest member, now,

Why won't habitual politicians support this tax simplification? Because it
takes away the power to give tax exemptions and credits which are at the
heart of the re-election money racket, see
habitual problems. If
you want tax simplification, we need
term limits so that we can have
new faces and ideas for old problems.
