5 steps to save the country by Pura Vida

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!
