As a "South Dakota Moderate" I do enjoy your show. I agree with some of your common sense approach to issues. But, I am not a fan of the "UNFAIR TAX". I have a hard time beleiving a 16% to 24% national sales tax is more fair to low income individuals than an income tax. The income tax is not the problem, it is the complicated regulations a some unfettered agents. A Fair INCOME TAX system is possible, but everyone ( including you and me) want our little special tax breaks. And once you tinker with the margins on tax breaks and incentives you create an unequal system. No tax system will ever be fair to everyone. We do need a tax on income, asset accumulation and purchases. But, the federal government doesn't need them all. Your national sales tax will create just another way for peoples to short cut this tax as well. Pimps and drug dealers aren't going to collect sales tax. Black markets where sales tax is not collected will expand. What rate will we need to generate the revenues needed ( not wanted) to operate our government? I have seen 18% to 28% (with "tax breaks" for the "poor"). This will only shift the burden, not elimate taxes. Keep up the good work.
I'm a senior and have watched for years the detoriation of our govt at all levels! They are out for them selves and could care less about the average person. I have been a self employed business man for over 55 years, delt with all arms of govt; good and bad. The worst is the IRS; we had a run in with them in 1987 which ruined our business; they have been out of control for years. I contacted my congress man's office and was told there was nothing they could do, they also feared the IRS.A very disapointed, proud AMERICAN!!!!!! Bob T
Dear Sir; I don't know why we should worry about the government listening to our phone calls. Russia called the white house to let us know about the Boston Bombers and Obama didn't even get that memo. Picture yourself as the surfer riding a huge swell of anti government support. Can we lower the debt by closing the government for the rest of this term? Let the church take care of the needy, and the community take care of the misfortunate. Please address the scum that went to Oklahoma to lute. Any one that can fly down from New York, rent a car shouldn't be so desperate to lute.
If you read the news at all clearly you will see that Islam is currently marching across the globe in influence and numbers...will they soon take over the USA, and what it being done about it? Since our President has 3 Muslim advisors....who greatly influence him, and since the State Department as a result, will not allow profiling of terrorists, looks like we are in REAL trouble to me, of becoming the United States of Islamic servants...whether we realize it or not. Its coming, can we stop it?
Brave American men and women die every week in Afghan. Many of them killed by the very people they are fighting to protect,and trainto defend themselves.. That should not be allowed to continue. Bring our forces home.... Our home land will need defending against terrorists and our borders
