Fact is no matter what the actual tax rate is over the past 100 years the federal government collects a little less than 20% of GDP.

My proposal is to have a across the board flat tax of 20% on everyone with limited to no deductions.

And get rid of SS and Medicare and require people to dave for their own retirement or suffer the consequences.

Personal Property tax eliminated. Violation of personal property rights.

School tax eliminated if you have no children in school.

Flat sales tax at 5%. No exemptions.

No Federal gas tax. State is fine.
I agree with all of this except the school tax. This is a bit naive but I donít mind paying school tax. My hope is it goes to educating our future.

So do you think public education today is a quality education?

Very few are.
but...majority isn't.

Learning starts at home....inner cities, ghetto, the impoverished, etc....don't have people at home...most live with grandparent(s) and in some cases great grandparent(s).
These are career welfare recipients.
No fathers, and a mother with her legs spread and illiterate because "she ratchet".

These kids have no drive or motivation to be better, and are raised in the streets by their peers.

Then you have the other kids who thinks it cool to be like that .

Using my Nieces and Nephew as my only benchmark I think if a kid wants to get a good education they'll get one in a public school. But if you're a marginal kid you're in some trouble.

From 2011 and holds even more true today. The USA spends 14.5K per student K-12.
