47% of the households in our once great country pay no Federal Income tax. This reminds me of a quote.

"The power of collecting and disbursing money at pleasure is the most dangerous power that can be entrusted to man”

Col. David Crockett, United States Congressman from Tennessee

capital gains
bank or bond interest
stock options
derivatives profits
currency trading.



Why SHOULD you be taxed on that? It was your risk, you could have easily lost money. Your neighbor did not take the risk, a politician did not take the risk a stranger did not take a risk - YOU did. Why should you have to give away your money that you risked? Would you give away 30% of your home to the govt?
The bathroom, and extra bedroom maybe the garage????

I actually would not mind paying a bit more tax if the govt was a good steward of the money, but they are corrupt cheaters - all of them R and D.

Hi Gamma,
I think a flat tax with a fixed bottem level. What ever it takes to eat for a year or what ever you can deduct at the end of the year.

Good morning Mobal,

Yes, that is the stats... and a lot of that 47% that do not pay any Federal Income Tax, get back a lot more than they even pay in to begin with!

I think we need a reasonable flat tax across all areas.. with no one getting any "deductions".
