step six, follow the new American Dream: fleeing the country to escape the unprecedented level of poverty.


So you're admitting we're sliding down a steep slope right now?

Step 1: Everyone go to the bank

Step 2: Everyone get a visa card with a $32,000 limit

Step 3: Use said credit to pay into the government's deficit fund

Step 4: Pay off your $32,000 debt


It helps the deficit, AND stimulates the banks. Plus you get frequent flier miles so it's a win-win-win.


It's up to $41,000...and that is for every citizen, woman, child, elderly etc. It's $116k per taxpayer.

How? Show your work. Use specifics and examples.

Because, quite frankly, we're already approaching those unprecedented levels.

1)legalize marijuana and tax it 2)get the pentagon to quit giving lofty $$ to defense contractors,find the lowest bidder.We are paying too much for these a$$holes to live in luxury.3)quit sending $ to countries that hate us 4)drastically cut spending on the war on drugs,addicts have no problem getting drugs anyway 5)cut out corporate welfare,cut welfare to the lazy,2 years max,single people don't get any,welfare should be to pull you up by the bootstraps,not a way of living.Welfare should only go to disabled and moms in tough circumstances,crackheads and junkies-tough sh#t,no welfare!6)fine politicians that stick earmarks and pork in bills 7)fire those extra irs agents,in fact I don't like the irs,they are crooks.Don't know much about the fair tax system but willing to listen.8)cut unnecessary spending that doesn't help schools,infrastucture,military,health care,police...9)let citizens decide if politicians deserve a raise or not.10)all politicians that were happy w/health care under Bush-don't get gov't provided healthcare,they can buy their own.In fact all the politicians can buy thier own healthcare,why should we pay for it!

Let me add that prison should be mainly for violent offenders and crooks that caused someone else to lose $ or property.Harmless drug offenders should be set free.Bring back the chaingang and have prisoners help build roads,clear land,plant trees,plant vegatables.....

Cut out any luxuries for prisoners-no weights,no tv,no tasty food,just feed them enough slop to keep them alive and fuctioning.

We have 11 million illegal immigrants. You might say they don't affect the deficit, because they get paid under the table, but they still find their way onto medicare and other government plans.

I propose that we don't stop the flood of illegal immigrants. Instead, legalize everyone who crosses the border and all the 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the US...then tax the shiz out of them. Eventually, when they're getting so much of their wages skimmed off the top in taxes, coming to the US won't be such an attractive prospect.

Kill 2 birds with one stone.

A. Obama and the Dems are working on this. Republicans so far....just saying no.

But illegals pay: http://www.usatoday....antstaxes_N.htm

and generally do not ask for refunds, and they will never collect Social Security.
