    1. Change the Federal Income Tax Code to read:
    >18% on personal income with each Citizen receiving the same $45,000 deduction.
    >18% on all business income with $25,000 + payroll as the only deductions.​


    2. VIGOROUSLY Check ID's at the border and make sure non-citizens understand that they pay 18% on all income, there is a path to citizenship, and those caught working for ca$h, not paying their bills or convicted of felony fuck-ups will be banished for life.











    Fair and simple taxes remains step 1 folks.

    Allow States to protect their borders and citizens from illegal immigration instead of suing them.

    "Illegal" immigration would be a thing of the past if we simply let every everyone cross the borders on a vigorous ID check and a good understanding among guests on personal responsibility and tax liability for non-citizens.

    I can get behind this IF we actually enforced it. I don't think for one moment we would "vigorously check for IDs." Hell, we can't even vigorously check IDs to vote.

    Yes a good understanding among guests should do it.

    Perhaps a pinky swear to seal the deal.

    While I like the tax idea that doesn't address people coming here and receiving medical benifits or other welfare. Not to mention voting.

    That's another thing that's an easy fix. Free national photo ID cards for citizens. Non citizens should continue to have to pay for their work permits.

    We already give people free Social Security Number Cards, up to 3 replacements in any given year and 10 in a lifetime. Upgrading that process to a genuine, plastic, national photo ID card wouldn't take a rocket scientist with an unlimited budget.

    Maybe even use the template for Passport Cards, just make them free to all Citizens! :eusa_doh:

    :thup: True Story!

    And wouldn't it be nice to have taxes off the table, much of the corruption stripped out of congress because business taxes are 18% and not up for discussion with the highest bidder, and the congressMonkeys discussing these types of details?



    Step 1 remains Fair and Simple Taxes.

    Step 2. Public budgets that are balanced by law.
    Step 3. Transparency in all things politics.
    Step 4. Build a free economy that your children can drive to the stars.




    The Monkey Business needed to reach for the stars isn't rocket science, y'all. :smoke:

    I think we need to get a better hold on enforcing the border, and deporting those who outstay their visas. We also need to make the visa process faster and give out more visas. Also making the path to citizenship simpler, and not something just for the very rich.
