Taxes

How much is enough? There has to be a fair tax or flat tax to replace our current income tax system. Eliminate the IRS immediately. Legitimate functions of government, that do not exceed 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) are sustainable and justified. Today, our government consumes 27% of our Nation’s GDP. The Ruling class think that OUR MONEY IS THEIR MONEY and they are WRONG! The Best government is a small government and we must starve the Beast!

How much of the fruits of a man’s labor is enough to satisfy the all-consuming government bureaucracy? Before the government can spend a dollar, it must first confiscate that dollar from a citizen who earned it with his labor. The funding of the essential and constitutional duties of the Federal government is necessary, but taxing to fund ridiculous programs must end.
