I have a lot of friends and family who have never been outside the borders of the United States. This is a fairly large planet with a WHOLE BUNCH to
see and experiance. Many countries, many cultures, and amazing landscapes! Not to mention nature in every form.
So with that it mind why don't people travel and experiance all that this planet has to offer? ANSWER: $$$$$ ... As many of you know to take a
trip, for example, from the United States to Ireland is going to cost you in the range of $1200 to $2000 per seat, JUST for the flight itself. Then
add in the hotel, car, food, etc...and your spending a ton of cash.
Now, since we all agree, and even though you would never know it these days, the government works for us. WE THE PEOPLE supply EVERY dollar to the
government that they spend. So what if for once we had a say in how that money is spent. Well here is my suggestion for tax dollar use.
The United States government starts and funds an international public transportation airway. We as tax payers are then allowed to use this
transportation to fly anywhere in the world for our vacations at no cost. Kind of like your city buses, trains, etc...just on a much larger scale.
This way we know atleast SOME of our tax dollars are actually being used the way WE want, and the use itself benefits those who make the country tick.
I mean imagine being able to work, pay taxes, and when you and the family want to go to Germany, the UK, Japan, Ireland, Brazil, etc...you simply go
and budget for the expenses IN that country.
The requirements to use this airline would be:
- US Citizen WITH proof
- US Tax payer WITH proof (i.e. If you can't produce a tax return for the prior year, you don't fly)
- I also think I would impliment face to face booking. If you want to use this service the government would open up offices around the nation and
you have to go in to the office and provide your proof in hard copy, meet the travel agent, and get the old fashioned feel of getting something done.
I mean the government robs, and rapes us yearly, why not get SOMETHING out of it, rather than watch them piss it away to other crap. Thoughts?
