Simmons, as is anybody, is free to ask the government to raise taxes on its wealthiest citizens as part of a greater effort to solve the worst economic crisis of his lifetime. that's Bill Of Rights 101, sir.


Or (being a fairly wealthy citizen himself) he can simply send additional money to the gov't when he files his taxes and leave the public self-serving soapbox act out of it.

But that wouldn't get his name in the papers, now would it? ;)

Again, the most recent track record is

1. President Clinton raised taxes on the wealthy leading to lower deficits and better employment
2. Mr. Bush lowered taxes on the wealthy leading (as one big part) to higher deficits and an economic mess and lower employment

Eliminating taxes altogether?

...Just curious.
Whatever happens the current system does not work and I don't think anyone can argue with that..


I was really hoping for some insight... no solution only general opinion without solution? :coffee: :dunno:

I've stated it several times.

Ending the central banking system and its grip on inflation/business cycle and renewing a sound currency is a huge step in the right direction. Fiat currencies have a historical track record of failure every.single.time.
