Another Idea for Donald Trump: Fixing the Tax Laws

Alex Linder once said that, if a politician wants to win an election, he need only run on one promise: if elected, he’ll give the citizens their freedom back. If he did that, he’d win by a huge landslide. Yes.

On that note:

True, building a border wall will guarantee (or almost guarantee) that Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020. But another thing that will guarantee, or almost guarantee, his re-election is if he fixed America’s truly horrible tax code — laws that are so nightmarish, so crazy that even many accountants don’t understand them (think about it: the tax code is 75,000 pages of mind-boggling nonsense).

Here’s an idea: how about a very simple flat tax — for example, everyone pays 4% of their yearly income as tax, regardless of who they are? Or, better yet, abolish the income tax altogether and create a big point-of-sale tax on all non-essential and luxury goods (e.g., TVs, cameras, watches, booze, candy, soda pop, etc). (Trump might be able to accomplish some tax reform by executive order, as F.D. Roosevelt did).

If Trump were to combine the two ideas above (the border wall and fixing the tax code), he’d win the 2020 election by a giant landslide, no matter who his opponent was. It would be the biggest election landslide in history.

      Those termites need piles of money to chomp on and to pay themselves, so they can sit around and wank each other.
