sales tax is way better than income tax....Herman Cain/Gary Johnson were the only ones who endorsed fair tax
...these look like great places for the rich and famous to hang out...or if you work for the FEDGOV Corporation of America...
Even if there aren't income taxes, a national sales tax is way more fair than a confiscatory tax on wages and money you earn that actually discourages work. Our tax system is screwed and probably not even Constitutional. it is a fraud to help government and the people they serve:
Its soooooo funny how Beck, Limbaugh and the other hot talkers are begging Republican voters to get into a frenzy about taxes so that they don't have to surrender any of their multimillionaire income. They trick the workingman into thinking that Wall Street and its Federal Reserve umbilical chord are capitalistic. HA.
Suddenly everybody is a socialist (a word they learned from a plumber who actually paid attention in his economics class), except for the actual socialists.
example: "I don't want government healthcare, so get the government out of my medicare."
Since November 6, have you seen all the people posting things like "shut it down"?...As if all of our problems started with Obama and could have been fixed by Romney. The irony is that only Ron Paul was willing to shut down the federal beast - but he was just a crazy guy
So if there's no income tax there must be no liberals, right? And minimal government? If you take away the cheese, the rats will leave.
these people will NEVER understand. I say we just ditch this echo chamber for good. Ask them what Ron Paul stands for and they'll tell ya "well I don't know, but it's not good." So many intelligent people need their fix of foolishness. what a shame.
Sales tax is an economic depression force. If it is leveraged by ITSELF, it is okay, meaning you take home what you earn and all programs are paid for by sales tax. This is actually the best way people can exert control over a government. If they feel it's getting out of hand, they stop spending for a couple of months and the message gets through loud and clear.
Sales tax when coupled with other taxes (like Hermain Caine's famous 9-9-9 plan) is actually a horrific idea. You get the worst of all worlds and there is no counter to the depression effect of the tax. There is also no ceiling that it can't be raised to along with other taxes.
We should only have one form of taxation, this multiple stuff is part of why we are in this mess. The Goverments can game the system to their maximum benefit.
26 U.S.C. § 7806. Therefore, the actual statute commences with "There is hereby imposed ." The imposition of the tax is on taxable income, only, not on any person or entity. In contrast, see 26 U.S.C. § 884, discussed more fully infra, which does impose a tax on an entity. Subtitle A does, however, designate partners as liable for the taxes on income of a partnership, but only in their "individual" capacities 26 U.S.C. § 701 Foreign corporations are specifically designated as the party liable for payment of the Branch profits tax" imposed by 26 U.S.C. § 884 (which, incidentally, does impose the tax on "any foreign corporation).
The only other party that is identified in the income tax law as liable for the payment of any income tax is revealed in 26 U.S.C. § 1461: Sec. 1461. Liability for withheld tax Every person required to deduct and withhold any tax under this chapter is hereby made liable for such tax and is hereby indemnified against the claims and demands of any person for the amount of any payments made in accordance with the provisions of this chapter." "This chapter" "Chapter 3 - Withholding Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign Corporations". Thus the liable party in this instance is anyone withholding tax on nonresident aliens and foreign corporations. There are no other references in Subtitle A (the income tax law) to ANYONE being liable for the tax imposed by § 1 other than those: partners (but only in their "individual" capacity);
Actually, since Nov 8 Rush has been consistently promoting and pushing the GOP to just back away and let Obama and the Dems do whatever they are gonna do without fighting them.
He asserts (and correctly so) that the Dems and Obama are going to do whatever they want anyway, so why not just back away and let them own it.
As for Beck, who knows what he is saying, I am not even sure he knows what he is saying.
Beck is so far behind the curve ... 3-4 years behind the curve (IMO)
The big battle coming is not with the GOP and the DEMs ... they are pretty much lockstep with each other. Any battling they do is just for theatre or distraction.
The big battle will be within the GOP ... the Conservative vs. The Progressive wing of the GOP
Personally, I think this is the perfect time to absolve the GOP.
Beck was correct when he said the other day that the GOP is going the way of the Whig Party.
@DEEBERJ I used to be just like you..thinking that God expected us to kill for Israel...Not so!!.. The ones who head up the un Federal Reserve..also head up the Trilateral Commission..the UN..the Council on Foreign Relations.and all the secret Communist Societies..Their plan is well orchestrated..they have been working to overtake the world since the 1700's...They have instigated and funded all war..they have killed and chosen our presidents..both runners were chosen by them in 2012..They are the propagators of the Luciferian New World Order.. They want massive depopulation..and the UN has issued a report callied "Our Global Neighborhood" and it states that anyone not taking a vow to Lucifer..will not be permitted to enter the NWO..They only want 500 million slaves left to serve them..Rev 2:9 I know you who call yourselves Jews..who are not..but you are the synogogue of Satan." Israel is run by Communists/Zionists..just as we are.. In the end..even the elect will be fooled..God gathers the nations to go against Israel..Jesus steps in causing a big earthquake causing Israel to be saved..but something happens and only one third will be permitted to enter the millenial kingdom..that being the remnant..Churches have fallen victim to the media just as most Americans have..It is all about control of the masses..
I wouldn't listen to Mr. Rush Republican. At the end of the day, he is only loyal to the Republican Party even more so than Beck. I wouldn't listen to Beck or any of them. Take his original advice, that he probably took from somebody else, and read original texts without any analyses. We don't need these clowns.
Fox/talk radio/weekly standard et all is just one giant industry that only pumps "electable" Republicans to push its monolithic purpose of Israel-wall street. I've been in the same room with these people, such as Ann Coulter. believe me, you cannot distinguish them because they are only for their media empire. These people were running scared when Ron Paul got injected into the narrative.
A misleading report. For e.g. Monaco has high social insurance taxes payable by both employer and employee. The employer's contribution is between 28%–40% (averaging 35%) of gross salary including benefits and the employee pays a further 10%–14% (averaging 13%). A tax based on income but called social insurance tax.
I agree with everyone calling for the fair tax. The fair tax puts all goods sold in the U.S. on a level playing field and our exports (exported tax free) at a more competitive advantage. Since the only real wealth is made is when it is harvested from nature or human labor turns something from nature into a more usable form, exportation is the BEST means to increase a nation's wealth. Furthermore, it totally guts the IRS and shows people how much they are really paying in taxes. It also gives the individual the choice to cut the amount of taxes they send to the federal government through their own purchasing habits. Everywhere that a tax code similar to the fairtax has been implemented, tax revenue has risen, tax rates have decreased, and prosperity has followed.
Oh, and for the record, Herman Cain was originally for the Fair Tax until the elections, at which point he just wanted a ruse to try to gain popularity with a seemingly "simple" tax system. Unfortunately, he gave up on the correct course of action and lost his entire base; which sat back and called him a dunce for denouncing one of the few reasons that his base wanted him in office.
Everyone on the left keeps screaming "tax the rich", well, ok then, eliminate the income tax and charge only sales tax. The rich buy more stuff, so, they would pay more money to the government. That would be the fair way to do it.
There is a reason why these places have photos of beautiful places like these, the rich go there and spend money. they pay sales tax.
Yeah, this article is a little misleading. I live in Qatar right now, on temporary assignment. No income tax, true, but the sovereign oil (gas, rather) wealth pays for a lot. Cost of living is high here, and they have to import all their food in the Land of Sand.
They also have a lot of "fees". There is no free market here, there is only what the Sheiks allow, price controls on everything. The Blaze has not done well by posting this article.
There are some sh*t holes that have no income tax also because there is no way to collect from peasants.
Think Somalia has an income tax?
Notice the rich countries also have no entitlements and standing armies either.
When the Maldives have an earthquake, they just wait for us to show up and save their lame a$$es.
Sales tax is the way to go. Tax NEW durable goods at 25%. Used is free. That's it.
You make $100 - you keep it and invest it how you wish (other than state and local taxes). No paper work, no tax day, no headaches from the IRS. Bliss.
Note: This doesn't hurt poor people - as most items they need are neither new or not durable (food, fuel, services, etc.). But it does bring in income from illegals, drug runners, and people who can currently afford expensive accounting tricks (the wealthy). Win-win.
How about they get their money the way the rest of us get it...VOLUNTARILY.
so which of these countries have anything resembling gun rights?
Ron Paul is a blame America and Israel firster and an islamic appeaser. His message of peace though weakness is retarded. He should lead code pink or go to the nursing home.
Consumption tax is the way to go; income taxes arer desisgned to probibit wealth; I like no buy; no pay. Its called the "PROGRESSIVE' INCOME TAX. Get it?
The problem with "income tax" is that not everyone has an "income". When a tax on income becomes too burdensome, people stop working, it is easier and more prosperous to live off the state, federal hand outs. Hence what is happening in USSA. Look at the states in america that have high sales tax and low income, property tax, they are much more prosperous. Everyone pays, no matter what. Everyone has some skin in the game.
VERY INTERESTING ARTICLE, great photos. SO what if the sales taxes are high. That can be controlled by the individual, right? NOTE TO PAULBOTS: The reason Ron Paul was SO OFFENSIVE TO MOST OF US is YOU.
I did like the comment: Liberals would not exist in these places...take away the cheeze and the rats leave (Those who want something for nothing and don't want to work for anything).

Typical cowardness from a probable muslim.

Just goes to show rasicm is alive and well in this country because the vast majority of black Americans only voted for this president because he is black. Wait, maybe I, the white American, am the racist because I called other Americans black. NOOOOOOOOOO…..SAY IT AINT SO. STONE ME! PUT ME AWAY! MY EVIL WHITE RACIST THINKING NEEDS TO BE RE-EDUCATED IN A BILL AYERS TRAINING FACILITY.

And this is a surprise? Everyone knew who the muslim brohood were except the Obama administration.
JOR: Agree. Obama has droned America domestically with his disastrous economic policies AND internationally by siding with the Muslim extremists ..oh, and then there is that Russian so-called " re-set" button. Benedict Arnold was executed for less ....

Is there no depth to which Obama will go? The UN wouldn’t have the nerve to step into my part of Pa where people cling to their guns and religion.Get out of my country. Take the Nobel Peace prize fraud with you.

Well isn’t her name Cinnamon fitting for what she portrays. You see, Cinnamon is a spice used to hide what is bland. An ordinary muffin doesn’t have much taste hence the reason you can add spices to make it lively. Really its just a cover for truth. So in reality Cinnamon is lie, deceit and full of ignorance.Its not Cinnamon’s fault its used to cover up something so bland. Cinnamon doesn’t know any better. Cinnamon is purposefully grown to cover up the corrupt and tasteless. So what can be done to counter Cinnamon. Nothing. It is blind and will only ever know how to be a spice. In closing I would like to point out that I love Cinnamon. God created Cinnamon. But it doesn’t mean that I have to love what Cinnamon is trying to cover.

LOL, Such professionalism from “Lawrence”. Typical left tactic. When they are down, lie, make fun of your opposition call them out in hopes they too will stoop to your level.
Wait that’s leftest tactic… He is a self proclaimed Socialist.

Love the Oasis Class. Been on both ships. Just a bunch of regular people cruising and enjoying the Caribbean. So under Obama could I be entitled to this for free?

So where is all this work? Unfortunately I had to lay off 4 men yesterday 10-5-12.

At least they were smart enough to be wearing helmets and pads. Within the past 3 weeks 2 of my sons friends were hospitalized long boarding without helmets. One 17 year old had to be airlifted to TJU in Philadelphia with slight bleeding of the brain. The other 16 year old was knocked out and had a broken arm. All within 2 weeks of each other. They always think it will never happen to them or anyone they know. Just to the other people. BTW…both kids are doing good and all learned a valuable lesson.
The whole purpose of the sport is to get a thrill. All of the other boarders just rode on a down hill road, but this guy was the only one that had the perfect wave.
My son was the one in the green shirt at the first of the video,His his life was saved by wearing a helmet, two years ago in an accident when his head hit so hard it cracked a DOT motorcycle helmet. I am happy with the downhill long-board community, and their attitude of "NO HELMET---NO RESPECT"

What is everyone complaining about? I thought it was cool to be less qualified yet the most powerful person on the field.

No easy answer. To eliminate the right to collective bargaining is unlawful HOWEVER just because you have the right doesn’t mean every time you bargain you must collect. There HAS to be a sense of urgency among the Union reps to realize the money just isn’t there. My wife is a teacher and I a labor union member. Both our Unions have recognized the tough times. Both our unions have made concessions. She hasnt seen a raise above .5% in 3 years (thats point 1/2%). I received a 4% increase with 50% of it going towards paying for our healthcare and 20% towards defined contribution. So many Unions get it and understand the hard times. They are not all bad. BUT there are times I admittedly am embarrassed to be affiliated. While other times am grateful for the conditions and safe work environment they have given me.

If this is true than Obama is pure evil. I will never again refer to him as President for evil doesn’t deserve honorable recognition.

MSNBC is the biggest joke out there. Rachel Madcow and Sgt Schultz epitomize straight up desperation.
For all you Biden minions out there. “e·pit·o·mize” means perfect example
edit…Sgt Schultz may actually be smarted than Ed. So I will just refer to him as Angry Ed from now on.
