Step 1- We give billions every year to countries that owe us money from wwII,  Thats just assinine when we cant afford our own social security

Step 2-

There should be a flat sales tax to replace the income tax for people who make less than a million dollars a year. 

Right now there are millions in this country that do not pay income taxes but make income.  Bartenders, waiters, DJs, strippers, illegals, laborers, drug dealers, etc. all make some serious coin and do not pay income taxes.  On top of it, many qualify for the earned income credit and get back 3-5 thousand a year.  Millions of people get more money back from the IRS than they pay in. 

We have a huge frickin deficit.  How are we ever going to pay it down if a good chunk of the population isnt paying their share.  A flat sales tax would make everyone pay and pay a proportionate amount to their income.

Step 3- Legalize and tax prostitution and marijuana. 

Illegal prostitution is just stupid! How can it be illegal to sell something that is perfectly legal to give away????????????  Everything bad about prostitution is bad becuase it is illegal.  Legal prostitution is safe for the worker and the client.  Plus, the tax revenue could save this country from the depression that is looming. 

Marijuana is better for you than booze and its a lot safer to smoke and drive!  Millions smoke it every day yet we dont get any tax benefit?  We need every dollar we can get!  Legalize it and tax it!

5 steps to save the country by Pura Vida

I hate to be a stickler here pura, but the blog is called 5 steps to save the country... but I only see 3 steps.  I'm following you here, but I need you to help me go the rest of the way man!  I left my 'jump to conclusions' mat at home, so I'm not confident taking an unguided leap at this point.

MY PLAN:

Bomb them all, take there oil,

Pull over every Lawn Care crew and Roofer and check for green cards.

I'm in on the legal pot thing. It would be better and cheaper. Tax it though. If pot was legal it would run big tobacco out of business, no wait, they'd just grow weed.

Legalize smoking at the company you own. I'm sick of people telling me I can't smoke at work! I own the building! I own the company! If you don't like my smoke go freakin work somewhere else.  This is my private ^& property.

Make bowling an Olympic sport.  To qualify for the Olympics your team  would be required to drink at least 1 picher of beer per 10 frames. You may substitute a round of Jagerbombs if so desired. Zima not allowed.

Yeah! What Pura Vida said and what Morpheus*SFH^E* said!  and to those who absolutely do not think illegals are a huge part of what is ruining America - guess it is like telling a child over and over and over that the stove is hot;  but the child cannot understand until he/she feels the burn.....well, feel the burn and watch the burning and remember those of us who were trying to save you and our Country by alerting you to the impending FIRE! 

It is crackling, can you hear it?....there is the telltale sign of some smoke.....can you see it or smell it?  Oh, you do not have first hand experience with the negatives illegals bring - well then that means you give yourself the luxury of ignoring the reality.....so if it is not in your own back yard then you do not care about your fellow Americans that are suffering with the negatives? 

Each illegal allowed in our Country brings a spark.....have you ever seen the actual fires they ignite on their side of the border before they invade our borders?  Ask those who own property near the invasion areas....they can tell you.....but you still choose to not recognize the reality.

Wasteful gov. spending and those on welfare who are capable of working are all adding that which causes the fire to burn hotter and at an excelerated pace.....and we who are keenly aware of the burning will have been forced to feel the burn because of those who refuse to comprehend.......we do not need outside terrorists because we are imploding.......feel the burn....watch the flames - coming to your town courtesy of the illegals!

Step 2 was added- Three steps to go

There should be a flat sales tax to replace the income tax for people who make less than a million dollars a year. 

Right now there are millions in this country that do not pay income taxes but make income.  Bartenders, waiters, DJs, strippers, illegals, laborers, drug dealers, etc. all make some serious coin and do not pay income taxes.  On top of it, many qualify for the earned income credit and get back 3-5 thousand a year.  Millions of people get more money back from the IRS than they pay in.

Seriously

I really think someone should sue the federal government.  people pay into SS their whole lives with the expectation that they will get it back at retirement.  The government should have to pay that money first and foremost to the retirees and cut foreign aid/ entitlements if they cant afford it.
