||We could cut our taxes in half if we just stop sending the
same habitual politicians back to Congress. Their political IOU's generate
new tax losses and costs. They use the tax system to garner re-election
campaign contributions. And, then subject us to campaign welfare. You want
lower taxes, first of all, don't vote for incumbent. Secondly, help develop
a new national tax system.
As On-Line Democracy makes it unnecessary to wait for the
habitual politicians to
organize campaign reforms, so is it unnecessary to wait for these habitual
offenders to simplify our tax system. In fact, for greedy reasons of
self-interest, the habitual politicians will never solve these
habitual problems, especially
habitual taxation. Why not? Screwing with the tax system for a campaign
contributor is the mother milk of get re-elected politics. What leverage
would habitual politicians have with big campaign contributors if the habitual
politicains' couldn't offer tax advantages? On-line democracy is ...
the habitual cure, especially
to the rising habitual
terrorism. Tax simplification and term limits, today and forever!
Our current tax system is a chaotic garbage dump reflecting how each new
habitual politicians has bought his re-election with new tax credits, supports,
deductions and exemptions for his campaign funders. Our tax system consumes
6% of the gross domestic product (GDP). Said a better way:,
timistically, 6% of our time
is wasted on this mess.
Imagine the impact on schools if we simplified this mess to 1% of GDP and
worktime and directed the time to education. Would class sizes shrink?
Would tax assessments shrink? Would our schools and streets be safer with
tax simplification that allows a re-direction of human resources into schools,
homes and communities?
As on-line democracy for primaries and elections is a fait accompli,
so can tax reform be achieved before the next national election, if ....
If Americans will avail themselves of on-line democracy, we can initiate
tax reform and simplification with a working model for the New Millennium.
The keys to tax simplification are as follows:
Transaction tax: All economic transactions that benefit from the umbrella
of economic security are taxed at the same rate.
Collected taxes are divided between the nation(s) and Congressional District(s)
involved in the transaction.
A Congressional District Tax Authority committee on the model of United Way
distributes the collected taxes to taxing agencies associated with the District.
To reduce overall taxation and eliminate the metastasis of necrotic jobs,
communities may choose to tax themselves directly in lifehours so as to have
the timistic efficiency of direct personal problem solving, e.g., childcare,
schoolcare and eldercare, rather than inefficient, ineffective bureaucracies
that merely consume tax dollars.
It will be easier to elect tax reformists in the Year 2000 Congressional
Races if we have in place a working model for the proposed tax simplification.
There is no reason except a lack of popular support for a real-time, on-time
tax system. The principle is simple: Every transaction that benefits from
the economic umbrella of stability should pay its fair share of that economic
Before the Y2K Congressional election, if there is sufficient support, a
meeting will be held to match the proposed internet tax commission that is
composed of habitual politicians and self-interested businessmen. Who represents
the public interest? If you want to have more problems in your community,
support a tax-free internet that will suck jobs out of your town, maybe your
job. (The chairman of this commission, Gov. Gyp Guiltmore, is one big
Virginia Is For Liars?
While you should nominate a widely known person for the on-line, nationwide
Presidential Primary, the
Congressional District Tax Authority Commission should be composed of people
like you. Lifehour tax credits
will be received for all participation. When two-thirds of the Congressional
Districts have a quorum, a national meeting will be held to hammer out the
simple tax system for independents to champion in the Y2K Presidential,
Congressional and state elections. A collection of independents rally around
the tenets of better democracy and
capitalism in all its ramifications, especially tax simplification, will
lead America and humanity into the next Millennium that is more just and
