gripe all your want and pretend you know what is best for the country, but unless the government states otherwise, pay your taxes and don't fight it.
i don't trust any joe blow from a forum post of the welfare of our nation.
ie: you haven't cited any sources.
And what have YOU
brought to the discussion? Let's see, you've proven you speak solely from a position of ignorance about the topic at hand....
Here's an idea:
"Why not try being informed
, rather than simply opinionated
I'm not "griping".....I'm explaining why the FairTax addresses all of the concerns so far raised by the people who actually took a moment to consider it.
I don't pretend to know what's best, or have a better answer than the FairTax or Flat Tax....EITHER
would be better than our current tax policy. I didn't write either proposal (or the multiple derivatives there of). Surely you can comprehend that, but from your responses, it would seem you think this all "my" plan.
CMP, you keep making comments that would seem to indicate that you believe I'm not paying my taxes.....yet you don't know me, nor do you know a thing about my financial situation. I pay my federal income taxes at a single, zero deduction rate, if you must know. I'm not evading any taxes whatsoever. What I'm simply saying is that there are far better ways to have a viable tax system.
The question then becomes....why
are you so resistant to a restructuring of the current system? Why are you such an adamant supporter?
You've made statements to the effect that YOU
can't change the current tax code.......and implied that we might as well all just accept it. Why? Is our government not a representative one? You sir, are a defeatist....IF
that is your viewpoint; an apathetic one at that.
"Freedom is hammered out on the anvil of discussion, dissent, and debate."
- Hubert H. Humphrey
Our system of government is meant to be changed by an actively participating citizenry. The fact that you don't wish to participate isn't my concern. "Lead, follow or get out of the way" applies here....you obviously need to be in the latter category.
Lastly, I have
cited FairTax.org directly. 80+ economists have endorsed the FairTax plan including a Nobel Laureate. I've given you all the information necessary for you to research the proposal....you've simply been too lazy to look it up yourself and obviously prefer to be spoon fed.
If you really want to engage in debate, I suggest you get off your bum and look up the facts and then we can discuss them. Until then, you have no specific questions for me to refute....so I'll just wait for you to educate yourself; something I doubt you'll be willing to do.....It's so much more fun to mock and make irrelevant comments about my personal tax situation of which you know nothing about.
Have a nice day!
