    This year I want a flat 10% income tax with a single deduction of 85,000 so that anyone making below that will not pay any and any amount above that pays a single flat rate without any loopholes or complications.

    If any republican or democrat wants my vote then they better do that.

    This year, I want a Victoria's Secret supermodel to drive up to me in a Ferrari, naked, and give the car and herself to me. If any Republican or Democrat wants my vote, then they better do that.

    Why do you want to be taxed?

    Good luck with that.

    Do let us know if you find a politician running for national office who is promoting that platform so I can donate to her campaign.

    In the more likely scenario of the VS model and the Ferrari - :eusa_pray:

    Right, fuck the infrastructure, as the cons have always thought.
    We're pathetic, as it is, compared to most civilized countries.

    I kind of like the concept, but again, the Viki's Secret model and the car is more likely.

    I think your deductible is kind of high, but not unreasonable.

    You have to remember that these guys live and die by the commas in the tax code. The more weird and convoluted the tax code, the more power they have. They won't give that up

    I would favor just about any change in the tax code that makes it simpler and easier to figure out.

    But as noted, it is more likely that I will get laid by a supermodel than this administration will make things easier on the citizens.

    I agree with the concept as long as ALL income and profit is taxed at 10%. No deductions, no exemptions.

    Watch the wealthy balk when they have to pay taxes on every cent they make
