Of Political GREED and Suicide

Its Christmas Eve.....

And what do we see the goofball Governors of this Nation's States doing?  Trying to find a way to implement SALES TAX for business conducted via the Internet.  I KNOW there is a three year moratorium on Sales Taxes for the Net and The President is proposing a BAN on sales tax for the net but the ELECTED Governors of the States are flying right in the face of what the Citizens and Taxpayers want.... Hands OFF the Internet!

Why not a National VAT??  Eliminate the Income Taxes at both the City, State and Federal Levels and have ONLY a NATIONAL VAT with the funding from it distributed among the States the same way Representation Apportionment is done.  By population.  Remove the myriad of crippling taxes that are out there now.  We, as a nation of hardworking people are being taxed to death!  There are taxes upon taxes, taxes within taxes and then there are taxes after you are DEAD!

Take a moment and think of this... how much is a gallon of gasoline (wholesale)??  Its roughly 18 - 23 cents depending upon the location of the wholesaler.  How much are you paying right now?  The rest is TAXES!  City, County, Sate and Federal!!  Taxes upon Taxes.  Booze... Check out the tax % rates on a bottle of Rum, Vodka or Good Old, Jack Black.. you'll cringe at how much you are being GOUGED.

That folks is why I am in favor of a VAT.... Everybody pays their FAIR share..... EVERYBODY! Rich, Middle and Poor... their fair share.

I could be wrong... I don't think so... If you think I am... by all means, let me hear from you. You can also reach us via Email or our very own newsgroups.  Simple point your newsgroup reader to news.streport.com and you'll be there.
