But this is an economic proposal that should be distributed. Please forward it to others so we might find a way out of the economic depression and perhaps even some of all the punditry that is eating away at our mental health, the economy, society and especially our children and their futures.
Don't Lower Taxes -
Do Away With Them To End Our Depression
Isaac Bickerstaffe, esq

The relationship between no taxes and having more money to spend is unquestionable. The relationship between me and you spending more is key to the success of business and the economy. So, it logically follows that with fewer or no taxes, the more we can spend, the stronger the economy and the better off we will be.
The issue then is not how much we should cut taxes, but as swift Republicans like John Kasich ask, why have taxes at all? If we do away with taxes altogether, we could spend our way out of the depression. And can’t we all live without those wasteful government programs and services?

Do we need public schools and colleges? Not really. Kids aren’t learning anyhow and so many of the teachers already buy the supplies needed in the classroom. Cooler classrooms save on heating costs and make sure the kids stay awake to learn.
There are excellent private colleges to go to if there were no tax dollars for public universities or community colleges. Besides, state schools are not turning out enough graduates anyhow. Just look where so many important discoveries and technology are coming from?
In fact, taxes contribute to our problems. For example, if there were no taxes for road maintenance, roads and highways would fall into disrepair and the potholes and crumbling roadways would make everyone slow down. This would all but end speed-related traffic deaths. Look how well this works when we don’t plow the roads to keep taxes low.
Health inspections of restaurants just adds to the closure of small business and add to their cost of doing business. Besides, just look at the peanut situation. Did tax-supported health inspections stop that? No the market did. A few people getting very sick, I forget if anyone died, did more than any food inspectors.
Same with building inspectors. They just add to costs of building and rentals by demanding that places be up to code and “safe”. When they close up places because they are inhabitable, does that help business? If a building falls in or catches fire from poor or illegal construction or wiring, doesn’t that destruction erase the problem itself?
Has a new tax-supported stadium or arena made your favorite team a winner?
In fact, taxes do little but create problems. Trash and garbage pickup just give people excuses not to re-cycle. Tax filtered and treated tap water just encourages people to drink too much and bathe more than is necessary. We even have tax built and supported places where sewage is collected and allowed to sit in large tanks creating a health hazard. How disgusting. We have sewers and drains that could simply just dump that all in the river.
Civic organizations just encourage people to get together and find out what else they want to make their lives better and longer. That costs more money. Athletic centers encourage people to engage in sports which makes them get hurt at times thereby leading to more health costs. People who sit and watch TV all the time do not get ankle injuries.
Taxes for prisons just give judges somewhere to send guilty people. No taxes for prisons, fewer criminals and prisoners. No taxes, there would be no tax cheats or fraud. No taxes, no public offices, so no corrupt politicians to jail.
Nationally, having armed forces just leads to wars which cost more taxpayer dollars. If there were no army, we would not be in
I am sure you have examples too and I hope you find this modest proposal to have merit and support those who oppose all taxes. But if you do not agree, do not simply waste my and others' time with foolishness such as suggesting that the administration's package should be given more time to work.
And please do not just say I wrote this because I will be in those who have succeeded in our society and make so much money that my taxes will go up. Yes, my tax bracket places me in the group that will have to pay more but fear not, I have accountants who can find the loopholes so I do not pay taxes this year either. It is with full sincerity that I can say I have not the least personal interest in endeavoring to promote this necessary work. The only motive I have is the public good of my country.I have not had to pay taxes for the past eleven years so there is nothing in my proposal for anyone to attack me for personal gain by it.
