Taxes

Donald Trump has put out a tax plan that I think is pretty good.  It's certainly better than what we have now.  I do think that everyone should pay taxes.  Even if it's only 1% income tax.  We all receive services from the government and we all should pay for them.

The military, the border patrol, the police, health department all contribute to the general welfare.  We should generally pay for them.  1% is not much and won't be missed by anyone.  People should also pay because then they have a stake in how the nation is run, because it's their money.

States should not have an income tax.  They should get their money from sales and property taxes.  Sales and property taxes can also be split with counties and local governments.  Local governments should be free to tax property and sales in addition to those taxes imposed by the state.  We should not have a bewildering array of taxes on everything we eat, use, own, or do; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
