The Land Tax & Immigration
Everybody can see this cannot continue but it will continue because the tax and subsidization scheme utilized in America is flawed. It begs for these problems to occur by its very design. We want some immigrants both temporary and permanent. How can a balance be achieved?
As usual it is easy to fix this social/economic problem but I don't have a television network to broadcast my plan twenty-four hours a day until everybody gets it and wants it. So I'm probably wasting my time here but...here goes another try.
The flaw in our system is the income tax for Americans. Americans should be exempt from income taxes. The only tax Americans should pay is the land tax based solely on the value of the location of any land they own. Americans should be exempt from income taxes, taxes on their buildings and homes, sales tax, personal property tax. etc. Oh sure governments could still vice tax you for smoking, drinking, screwing around and gambling which might be considered the same thing anyhow.
For non American workers this would not be the case. On the one hand, any foreigner with the means to do so could arrive at a port of entry, show identification proving they were not criminals or infectious and enter the country ready for work or play. However, foreign workers should have to pay the income tax until such time as they can legally upgrade their status to permanent resident alien or citizen.
On the one hand by changing our currently flawed tax system, which has been in use for thousands of years and is based on slavery, we will remove the single greatest impediment to job creation. On the other hand, though this reform will actually cause a need for more immigrant labor to fill unfilled jobs, American citizens would still hold a competitive employment edge. We will be the permanent American citizen workers exempt from the income tax while the immigrants will still be income taxed in this manner. The IRS would become the Immigrant Revenue Service.
This is righteous as well since we Americans have built this nation with our labor. Others should not just get a free pass. They should earn their way in too. Removing the need to account for the income of 300 million Americans by replacing this Roman taxing scheme with the simple land location value tax that is not evadable, easily collected and actually beneficial to society, will cause an explosion of jobs that must be filled. Once immigrants can legally enter the U.S. to fill the jobs Americans won't do then the few who try to sneak in will be much easier to catch than the hordes surging into America everyday. The worst part currently is the income tax is at the very same time causing American jobs to surge out of the country.
You are fed nonsense currently by the leaders to explain why things are getting bad even though we are "in a recovery moving forward." Anybody with a sixth grade education should be able to understand the tax reform that I propose and easily see that it is a much better way to do things than the current plantation model based on wage slavery. The plan won't be implemented because the current leadership likes being in power over us. This economic reform will free the hands of American labor to create enormous amounts of wealth. That would lead to most Americans not being at all dependent on government or the promises of politicians to make up for the flaws in the system.
Allowing Americans to become wealthy and independent is not currently on the agenda of the leadership. However, it should be on your agenda. Wouldn't it be better if everybody was free to create wealth becoming comfortably wealthy rather than scheming all the time to steal the wealth of others with the aid of government or other gangs?
