I understand that in order for Americans to keep their entitlement programs, keep all the infrastructure we so enjoy, taxes need to be paid in some
I also understand that my desire to live tax free, does not follow the current system, and baring MAJOR reform boarding on a complete overhaul of
things like the FED and IRS we can not have the system I would want.
The system is to partisan, with to many people in the game, for any one to come in and create this magical no tax life we want...
I understand that Compromise of my wants is the very essence of Civilized socitity, I am not so entitled that I believe what I want is good enough for
I understand that we have this system as it is, not as my ideology would want it to be, and in order to move it toward what I would want, would at the
very least require compromise.
The problem is you have 30% of elligible voters voting, these people are the people who are motivated to do so, either because they have a horse in
the game, or that they are SO angry they finally moved to do something.
People like the Extreme Right, the Extreme Left, The polarization of these two sides will lead to the down fall of America.
We have a system where we send representatives to congress to do nothing, simply based on the fact the wrong party is in power.
They adopt the view of not my guy? than we will block everything he does.
A Society can not function with out Compromise.
Hence, the Death of Compromise in American politics will lead to the grinding halt of the wheels of progress.
Wouldn't you know it, that seems to have already happened.
am i understanding correctly that you guys are pro-taxes?
It is boiling down of very complex issues in America, to such a simplistic narrative as this that is part of the problem. It leads to people thinking
in simplistic terms that do not match the reality of the situation and leads to easy manipulation by the manipulators when ever they need to sell
something to the general populous.
