Paul brings up taxes;
I am sick of taxes. Damn, it seems like the more I make the more just goes to the government. Just three months ago I was paying 10% of my income in taxes, now that I got a raise, I got to pay 20%. Who am I working for? Why does the government punish you for working hard and getting a raise? They tax me on food, income, rent, property, interest on savings (double tax), gas, beer, wine, tires, licensing my car, school books, cleaning supplies, OTC drugs, and about everything else the government can think of.
Why? Why doesn't the government stop taxing everything to the point we are in poverty again? Why can't we put a limit on the government's growth and expansion? Let some of us spend our money that WE EARNED on our NEEDS instead of spending it on worthless pointless wars, lazy people that won't get a job, and people that won't take responsibility for their own actions and life. It just makes me so mad that I work so hard for the government and lazy people.
NO MORE TAXES! PLEASE. I cannot stand it anymore. I cannot afford it.
Here is my idea.
Eliminate welfare for the non-disabled. Give them loans instead. A single mom that is young, give her loans, when her child turns 17, she can start working and pay them off. Why should I have to pay for her children, they are hers and the father. Make her and the father pay it all back, with interest, and use that money to raise the next batch of teenage pregnancies.
Prisoners, send them all to the cheapest prison run states, like Alabama, Arizona, New Mexico, and Georgia. Then make the prisons pay off the cost of imprisoning them with labor instead of prison and working when they get out. Why should they get free food, housing, and medical because they committed a crime? Give them loans, then when they get out, charge for the loans, plus interest to pay for the next batch of criminals.
Medical, create free trade with Canada, Mexico, and Europe for medical supplies. This will drive the cost of medical care way down. Couldn't you see it now? $1 for months prescription. That would be fantastic.
Tell these damn Republicans, to stop taxing the living !@#$% out of me. I should not have to pay 25-33% of my income to the government to give away to people that are probably living better than me. That is just insane!

While wandering aimlessly through the internet one day (meaning that I
don't remember where I came across it), I found out that Japan has an
engine tax. The smaller and more fuel-efficient the engine, the smaller
the tax. The tax apparently ranges from about $40 to $800 or so
annually, iirc. People who own more than one car would presumably be
taxed on both. In these days of higher gas prices, global warming, and
pollution concerns, it seems to me like it could be a good idea for our
country to adopt. We could start with lower numbers and add it in to
the registration cost. That's presuming, I guess, that the registration
cost doesn't already include it. Does anyone know what that amount is
Any thoughts on this? Is it a good idea?
