I could see some interesting compromises if people actually wanted to overhaul the tax system. For example, eliminate social security and medicare taxes and roll it into federal income tax. Eliminate corporate income tax, but also tax long term capital gains and dividends at ordinary tax rates. But while everyone is sitting at the table saying "No, X is OFF THE TABLE!" no real reform can occur.
Given that, when some on the right say they want their country back, I wonder just how far back . . . .
To American voters - If a dog bites you once, the dog is to blame. If a dog continues to bite you for 30 years, and you continue to let him bite you, then you are to blame.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
