• Probably the second biggest threat to democracy, behind only terrorists, are the Koch Brothers. David Koch ran as vice president on the 1980 Libertarian ticket, to the right of Ronald Reagan.

    • Nothing they’ve done is a “threat to democracy.” In fact, wasn’t it a centralized power that we ejected from America in 1776 to form a constitutional republic? Is it so radical to want to return us to the decentralized framework that made us so successful in the first place? I find it truly disturbing that there are folks like you that would like 300+ million people ruled by a small ruling class in what is probably the wealthiest 68 square miles in our country today. That is a threat to our democratic republic, not the Koch brothers.

    • I can’t say that I’m a big fan of most of the tax proposals I see. I think we are continually heading in the wrong direction by eliminating more and more people from having to pay any taxes at all. As we get further into debt, the country will be forced to raise more money and no one will ever get elected campaigning on raising taxes on the lower and middle income classes.

      With today’s computing technology, I don’t see why we can’t come up with a progressive tax rate that would increase by the hundredths or thousandths with each dollar that is earned. The bottom income earners would pay a flat $5.00 or $10.00 and then as income increases to 15k or 20k, they might pay $10.50 or $11.00. My issue is leaving half the country out of the contributing population when their vote counts as much as mine.

      Eliminate deductions entirely other than health care costs, education costs, and start up business costs. I understand the social and economic engineering madness behind the deductions but all they do is create more fraud than it’s worth going after. People who don’t wish to have kids should be given the same deductions as parents. Renters should get the same benefits as home owners.

      The biggest problem I have with the basic structure we use today and Trump is proposing is that there will be an artificial floor created in which someone earning one dollar more than another person is hit with an income tax while the other person pays zero. It makes no sense to me.
