The Democrats seem to be completely out there these days. Somewhere circling Saturn. But many Republicans are in outer space too.
Don’t raise taxes, ever. Never ever. Cut taxes and then cut them again and again and again…
Cutting taxes is good. We need to cut spending too however.
By Ron Paul
Many Americans who have wrestled with a 1040 form, or who have paid someone to prepare their taxes, no doubt cheered the news that Congress will soon resume working on tax reform. However taxpayers should temper their enthusiasm because, even in the unlikely event tax collection is simplified, tax reform will not reduce the American people’s tax burden.
Congressional leadership’s one nonnegotiable requirement of any tax reform is “revenue neutrality.” So any tax reform plan that has any chance of even being considered,
Good advice “markets.” Trump wins by working the economic card. He’ll have a tougher slog if battles headlong on cultural issues.
Trump has an interesting fighting style. He’s striking while he can, which is smart. But in the words of a friend of mine, Trump – “be cool.” Don’t get bent out of shape over Hollywood people or get into a public pissing match with the president of Mexico. Cut taxes. Cut regs. Kill crony capitalism. Get rid of bureaucrats.
OK. Suddenly conservatives and libertarians are cheering Jerry Brown on.
Excellent. Regs are killing the economy and they have been gamed by the biggest players in both business and government. What’s even worse are the “guidances” issued by regulatory agencies at the whim of bureaucrats. At least the regulations are written down.
Fewer regulations means (counter intuitively for some) a less crony system. Where there is opacity and red tape the cronies rule.
We’ll see how much can be cleaned up.
Yup. That’s about right.
All the taxation and regulation of California without the sunshine and palm trees.

This headline comes from CNBC and is misleading. These companies don’t “make the most money from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,” Taxpayers are making these companies rich, not the government. It’s not the government’s money. It’s yours. Too many people forget this.
Why are we going into massive debt, in part, to pad the bottom lines of these companies?
Sorry but the private sector pays for the public sector. The government exists to serve the citizenry not the other way around. Government should be small and it should be inexpensive.
However, the cronies who make their living off of the taxpayers would prefer to see ever more government. In an expansive apparatus lay many opportunities to legally steal from everyday people. This is what government does. It must be trimmed constantly or else it will overwhelm communities and economies.
