Some one has to step forward and put an end to the political warfare. The left argues with the right, the right argues with the left and the people are left somewhere in between. Spending is out of control and there is no end in sight. The political class will never do what is necessary to curb this. They are dependent on special interest to meet their desires of life long political power.
What we need is some independent thinkers that are not subjected to the whims of the political parties, left or right. We need business men and women that know what a true budget is, how to control one and willing to make the cuts no matter who it pisses off. People that have no interest in being in politics for the rest of their lives and go to DC to serve the people.
We need people that can say to the IRS, "Your time is done." Get rid of the 8000plus pages of tax codes, take the power from the IRS that only they have; your guilty until proven innocent. The IRS has the right to seize your bank account, put you in prison and deprive you of liberty and justice. If the IRS is proven wrong, they have no legal obligation to reimburse you for the time and money spent to prove it. It is a powerful system that is way to over due to be disbanded and free the American people from it's grip on society.
I don't care what we go to, the FairTax would be the best alternative, at least everyone pays, drug dealers, illegals and those out there that hide income. I would even go along with a FlatTax if I thought it could be done without still having to file papers with IRS. At least the FairTax would eliminate that part. No April the 15th to worry about anymore.
I am a small businessman that averages 8hrs a month dealing with the paperwork, and another 40hrs at the end of the year filing papers with my CPA. I have to pay a CPA to tell me how much I have to pay the IRS. What sense on any level does that make?
The only way we are going to get rid of the IRS is to get rid of the life long political class in Washington and replace them with people that have a brain and a heart. People truly dedicated to fixing the government, not just following the parties desires to keep the special interest satisfied.
