Making Government Operations More Open

Make the IRS auditors open and accountable to citizens

The IRS is the opposite of an open government. They operate in a "we are always right" fashion and are nearly impossible to get help from. They have been created for a purpose to collect money for the people to help our nation of the people. However, they forgot along the way that the same people they treat with indifference and as a number are those that they are working for. First, the IRS should not deploy an assumption ...more »

Abolish the Income Tax

The income tax is unconstitutional therefore illegal. The 16th Amendment was never properly ratified. There are MUCH better ways of collecting taxes that are more efficient and more fair. A progressive income tax is another fascist act they pretend is apart of the American way. This also involves getting rid of the Federal Reserve and the IRS.

Limit IRS Regulation to 100 Pages

Our nation's schoolchildren abide such rules everyday--so why is government allowed to fill libraries with the mind-numbingly complex literature that is income tax law? Congress must scrap the existing income tax regulation in favor of something the American public, even they themselves, can read. As was shown by the tax-code embarrassments of Timothy Geithner and Kathleen Sebelius, even the authors of our income tax ...more »

Ban the electoral collage

I remember election day. The Alaskan poles had not even closed and (elledged) president obama was giving his acceptance speech. I was so pissed that my vote counted for not. Nothing, nodda.

Do-It-Yourself Government

Ten Percent to Federal Government, State, Church. No income Tax--Only Sales Tax

That adds up to 30%. That's a pretty hefty bite. If God is happy with 10%, who is the Federal Government to demand more? So: Repeal 16th Amendment: Taxing income is bad business, permits deductive manipulation for those who can afford it, demands excessive record keeping, created the demon institution known as I.R.S., and provides avenues for cheaters. Move to Sales Tax. New Amendment: Federal Government may apply ...more »
