Wow - GREAT video - thanks for the post - will be sending a link to this around.
Ron Paul saying it like it is - it's SO refreshing to see from a member of the US Government.
It's amazing to me that TPTB haven't arranged for an assassination of Dr. Paul yet.
What's not amazing is that whenever he makes a run, he gets such little air time from the MSM. They really only focus on the candidates from the two
main parties, because anyone who runs as an independant usually makes too much sense, and if people knew that there were candidates with REAL common
sense policies out there, they would probably vote for them and the two party stranglehold would collapse.
As far as abolishing income tax and taxes on savings, I'm right with you, Dr. Paul. I live in Canada and will gladly vote for ANY party who runs on
this platform, even the Block Quebecois.
I strongly believe that there should be a flat rate sales tax on EVERYTHING for EVERYONE, and no income tax. That way, the rich would still pay more
(after all, they buy more stuff), the poor would pay less, and people like corporations (after all, they need office supplies) and illegal immigrants
would be forced to pay their fair share.
You would see a lot MORE revenue generated with this scheme, as every person and company out there would end up paying their fair share. It would
encourage saving (hey - if you're not buying, you don't pay tax) and people would end up with MORE money.
If the government were to couple this with a tax breaks on items where CASH was paid, rather than credit, you'd boost spending and cut personal debt
as people would save more for that item like they used to, instead of just borrowing for that non essential item.
