why dont you start by helpling your fellow man next to you first before you start trying to make global policies for nations that cant balance their own budgets (like the us i can add)

i'm not making global policies for anyone i am just voicing my opinion and what I think should happen. And yes I do help my fellow neighbours very often and do try to help those in need.

And we the rich need to help the poor, it is our duty.

I see you decided to sign yourself up. Bravo! I can give you a list of government facilities that would be more than happy to take your money if you need the help. This has actually proven to be the most beneficial post I have ever seen. We ATS members have single-handedly figured out how to solve the tax issue forever. Stop taxes; request donations. I'm so excited that I have goose bumps.

Well, since you are not adverse to financially helping your fellow earthlings, I was wondering if I could get a "payday loan"....


Just a small ammount like..oh...say 100,000.00 just so I can get thru the week or so...

that amount of money is unrealistic on my salary and using such an obtuse example to prove your point doesn't work. If everyone just provided a small annual tax to the UN i think it would work fine.

The current tax system works fine in supplying government agencies with the needed fund and the idea of the "donation" system is ridiculous considering that there's no way that the govt would get the funds needed to run things. I would hate to see what kind of condition a country like the US is who doesn't even try to keep a budget surplus these days because they can get away with it.

However with the UN i see no problem with donations, i have donated myself to some things and i know my money is helping people who need it more than i do. But this is still not enough.

However developed nations can help the UN bring a better life to the needy around the world and a few extra measly dollars every year from everyone in the developed world to the UN would go a very long way.


thanks,

Democracy is the best form of government available to a society; however, some of the few problems we face are also some of the most difficult and painful.

People are subjected to the ideology of the majority, and this sometimes takes away personal freedom. If this is the case, do we then have freedom after all? There are limits to what we can justifiably call a democratic procedure, but the problem is there are too many who do as they wish hoping no one will catch on in time to do anything about it. There are far too many rules and regulations that we fail to realize that the basis to writing laws (including taxes) should go something like:

1. Harm none, and intrusion is not a right.
2. If the first rule is broken, repercussions may be obtained via force, imprisonment, or death by lethal injection; intrusion is only allowed by a party when it is to enforce the laws.
3. There only needs to be one tax takend directly from paychecks. Beyond that, agencies must rely on public donations promoted as a civic duty. In this way, those who can afford it will do it for the same reasons they donate to any other charitable organization, and taxes would no longer be a burden but a gift.
4. Etc.

While I realize the liklihood of these very basic ideals being upheld with any amount of seriousness, it would be wise to hang something clever stating similar views in all legal buildings.

DraySol: I appreciate you so boldly leaving that witty example of how some people seem to need so much while others have much to offer...it's funny how many times those who claim to have so much to offer rarely offer more than a hard time and a lot of stress.
