"free enterprise system"? What is free in this so called system? Seems like only the wealthiest of us are enjoying any freedom in this country. Freedom from having to pay their fair share. Personally I would like to see a flat tax of say 20 to 23 percent accross the board, no exceptions or deductions. You pay that percentage of your income at the time you receive it, no more filing or paying someone to do your taxes. Establish new Trade laws that impose a tariff on imports equal to that which is imposed on our country, where the product or services are manufactored or sourced. It might help us to impose a penny tax on every dollar any American invests or banks offshore. We could also stop outsourcing government services as that activity only serves to enrich leaches and paracites. Now, if your goal is to rid us of the government, then lets get rid of the real source of our problems; the Congress. Our Representatives who seek to do our will. You know those who you hope will bring home the bacon. Once you have dealt with the spending and legislative branch, stop oil, farm or alternative energy subsidies. No subsidies to Boeing or any other industry that does business with the taxpayer should be continued. No increase in Defense funding, no military assistance funding for our allies. No increase in Intelligence funding. no further grants to science, engineering or medicine. No money for NASA. No increases in public safety, no money to rural hospitals or emergency relief for natural disasters. Forget about Social Security COLA increases and Medicare being able to pay your doctor for that operation you need *some want to do without those programs. We can forget our treaty obligations and dump the Postal system for good measure, FedEx it, you'll love the cost. No more stimulas money to Texas and other states that cannot meet their balanced budget requirements. Forget about VA benefits and Hospitals. No more welfare or disablity assistance for handicapped chilren. No more funding of foster care. M. Bachman notwithstanding. And let's make the Tea Party a little more patriotic, enact a law that says anyone that doesn't believe in taxes should be ineligible to receive any government money, whatever the reason. So vote Republican for a new America, one that asks nothing from us and one that gives us nothing back. Vote Repubican.
