I believe business taxes should be something like 25 percent... Firm. No loop holes, no favors, no write offs. [/quote[
I wholeheartedly agree! Flat tax all the way!!!
I first heard of the flat tax when Steve Forbes was running for prez in '96 (if I remember right); he ran on a flat tax platform, and we voted for him in the primaries. Unfortunately, our state was the only state he won. But since then, I've become an ever bigger fan of the flat tax. The current tax system accomplishes only two things: 1 -- Gives some companies (corporations) an unfair advantage over smaller companies, and 2 -- Keeps the people fighting over who should pay more.

Those who create the supply, can also demand. Again, this isn't some corporation, it's not some billionaire, it's not some name brand. We, as the ones with the money, and we being the ones who do the producing, have infinitely more power than any company could ever hope to have. We are under an illusion that we do not have this power, we are under an illusion drawn by elites and the rich to believe that we are not the ones in power. That we have no control, that we must barely make it by and make sure to make every dollar go further by shopping at walmart... The truth doesn't matter when it's not seen. Ignorance, complacence, denial, apathy, acceptance, there's a lot of reasons that people as a whole do not know their own power...

No matter what most of the world will be employed at the bottom, demanding most of the world suffer because they do the work at the bottom which is most of the worlds work in the first place is sick.

There are plenty of things one can do to better himself and his situation. It takes effort. It takes planning. It takes risk. One might have to move. One might have to save. One might have to sacrifice. No it is not easy, but neither is it impossible.

Yeah, that is how it works. I start a new job tomorrow since my previous employer did not want to match the 30% increase I will be getting at the new position.
