I just posted another thread in regards to letting states decide on certain issues and it got me thinking a little bit. As an alternative to federal
income tax why not take that power away from the Federal Government and give it to the states. The original intent of our country as a republic was
for states to remain free and independent, working for the unique individual needs of a certain group of people in a certain geographical area. The
federal government was created like this...
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common
defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution
for the United States of America.
What we have lost is state’s individual rights in lieu of a federal government that controls all. So not only is the federal government now in
control we have virtually lost all of our rights as Free states joined together for common interests. We are now the 50 states controlled by the
federal government. Not really a republic. The federal government controls the money and thus controls the states.
Now finally the great new tax plan of the century that also gives back power to the people. In order to be a part of the republic of the United States
each member must contribute annual dues to the federal government for use in common defence as well as other issues that are clearly defined. The
federal Government is no longer allowed to tax its citizens. The federal Government will derive its operating budget from the states as well as import
export taxes. Take the power away from the federal government and give it back to the states. It can't spend what it doesn't have. Any successful
person in life will tell you to live beneath your means as a method of wealth accumulation.
