    One has argued that money in people's pockets increases revenue, but with mostly foreign manufacturers, one must wonder in who's pockets the revenue goes.
    I fully support this - consumption tax and NO taxation on any income at all. Your pay should not be seen as a vein for the government to feast on like leeches. $10.00/hr should be $10.00/hr - $500.00/hr should be $500.00/hr.

    And since I support a more reasonable consumption tax - I also support serious culling of government activity and funding allocation. The biggest pit I see is the deep and vast 'support others' - other countries, that is. BILLIONS have to foreign aid - while our country continues to cave in on itself.

    Why is it that we have so many foreigners coming over here judging our tax laws. It's none of their ****ing business.

    Perhaps by coming over here they subject themselves to our tax laws and thus it becomes their "****ing business"?

    Not surprised you misunderstood the meaning of coming over here as in coming into forums.

    Challenging a person's right to debate a issue based on their origin is a poor substitute for countering the logic of their arguments.

    Regardless, given the United States' centrality in the world's socio-economic-political networks, most people have a material interest in our doings.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    If the rich felt positive about what tomorrow holds economically they would be creating Jobs and spending more as well.

    Obama and other Radical Liberals are doing their best to create class wars, and make the middle class and the poor hate rich people.

    It's all about divide and conquer.

    That's a pretty one-sided interpretation. Do you believe that the wealthy have lived their lives according to highest standards of righteousness ever envisioned by humanity's spiritual authorities, and have no culpability whatsoever in the country's economic, political, and cultural decline? Given how well networked in society they are and how much power they derive from these networks, that seems unlikely on its face, let alone after you scrutinize their thoughts and behaviors closely.

    I can say this much about the middle class: there tends to be a limit to the amount of money they think they need and should have. I can't say that about America's wealthy. No amount of money seems to satisfy them. Many things that were important to previous generations of Americans have been lost because of that.

    Not to say that the middle class doesn't also suffer from moral corruptions.
