my only problem with all this doom saying is that it all comes down to like 2 or 3 banks that are controlling world debt. how a commercial entity can
crash an entire country that can tell it to go to hell or even confiscate their banks.. is beyond me.. if the powers that be let the US crash it will
be because they want it to.. we make more money in the US (GDP)than the next 5 countries combined including china.
if we have the will of the people we can get change.. simply vote every democrat and republican that's served more than two terms out of office.
trim down the budget.
we had the FBI why did we need homeland security to do the same thing? (two organizations that do the same thing)
does the military really need a trillion dollars a year?
corporate profits are at an all time high with corporations dodging taxes from the us by holding money outside of the us.. find it. .bring it home..
fine the companies that are doing it. i dont care which company it is.. NO MORE LOOPHOLES pay your taxes!
tax the derivative market its value is crazy.. a 1% tax fixes our financial crisis..
fix tax loop holes for citizens.. no more getting a 5800.00 tax refund check for those who only put in 1000.00 in taxes.. a child credit means you
should get UP TO a 2500 cash return credit if you turned that much in.. not you turn in 500.00 and get 2500.00 back.
Last but not least if we can afford a 7-12% sales tax from local/state then their is nothing wrong with accepting a 1-2% additional sales tax from
federal.. what does this do? it actually allows you to get money from non tax paying people who live here. so we get a broader tax base for
last but not least democrats and republicans need to be sent a message enough messing with our future.. withhold donations, dont vote for either side
and generally put in more independents than either party who wont just go along to get along.. for at least one term session make them the minority,
vote every sitting member with more than 1 term out.
You know its great to argue about gay rights, abortion, healthcare, and all the other social issues that we need addressed.. but we gotta have a
country strong enough to stand on its feet to have those discussions.
lets go 1 step further.. im all for a 1% temporary tax on ALL TRADES that deal with stocks, commodities pretty much the whole financial market.. i
have no problem that bob who makes 700,000.00 a year might get a 5% profit for a few years vs a 6% profit (or higher i dont care of the real number)
this spreads out the pain to everyone not just one section and their is no dodging it.. it would fix our financial crisis
