About 75% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. Every four years the other 25% is covered with political campaign posters.
Yep, it’s that time again; a Presidential election cycle. Although the election is over a year away, the professional politicians, along with a handful of “outsiders” i.e. Trump, Carson, Fiorina are out in full force. For the most part, they want to save us from big government, when in actuality, they are big government.
In all the rhetoric, one item seems to be a common talking point; taxes and the Internal Revenue Service. It makes for great sound bites on the evening news but beyond that, it’s just plain BS.
So, in the interest of serving my country, I offer a new tax form with a flat tax of 3% for individuals as well as corporations; no deductions, EIC, depreciation or creative accounting. If you made $75,000.00 your tax would be $2250.00, end of story.
Now, let’s keep in mind, for this 3% tax to work, a lot of changes will have to made in Washington. Career politicians obviously won’t like the changes but let’s remember why these people are in Washington to begin with; to represent the people of the United States.
A very short list of things that would need to go:
- Tax and spend mentality.
- Any type of tax credit.
- Welfare as we know it.
- Bills that conveniently have non-related bills tucked away inside the “lawyer” jargon.
- Unlimited terms to Congress.
- The Internal Revenue Service
Again, this is a very short list of the changes that would have to be made.
To anyone that is running for the office of The President of the United States, this is an open invitation to comment on the one (1) page tax form posted below.
