  1. 2024 Presidential Election

    I think things are heating up and candidates are getting out front and center, especially on the Republican side. As for things on the other side of the aisle, who knows what's going on? I, along w/many others, predicted Biden wouldn't make it out of his first term and still believe that. Now, will they pull a "weekend at Bernies" or a "Feinstein", w/ol' Joe, who knows(?) Anyway, I wouldn't totally mind a DeSantis/Ernst ticket. Still not totally sold on him, but he's probably going to be there when all the dust settles. "They" will never allow Trump in the Oval Office again.

    “They” will never allow Desantis in the Oval Office either.

    Interesting that Tim Scott is going to be on The View Monday. Also whoever brings up fair tax, flat tax and term limits will get a strong listen from me.
    I don't know a lot but I know a little

    Same here, but I don't hold out much hope of anything ever changing w/all that, since it'll take most of Congress to go along w/it. Throw in all the legal bribery known as lobbying and there we have it. I do agree in principle, though.

    Yeah it'd be nice if they had the balls to let the people vote on it. I believe term limits would be non partisan and would pass by a landslide. Not too sure bout the flat and fair tax tho since I've never heard a lefties position on it. I mean if they want the rich to pay their fair share but do they?

    That’s because he’s from a regular, American background. His parents had regular jobs. He worked while in college. He’s NOT a billionaire. Flat tax makes senses to anyone who’s had to work a regular job….ever.


    This is why DeSantis is the candidate. He’s legit.

    He's also prior Navy. Clearly, I'm biased there... :D

    And he actually served in combat. And was at Gitmo. Clearly he’s the choice for POTUS.

    The sad part is that flat tax hurts the lower income brackets more than the higher ones.


    Our tax code is considerably progressive. Our bottom half of wage earners combine to contribute nothing at all to the federal budget.

    When morons on Facebook complain about the rich “paying their fair share” they simply don’t understand anything. The rich pay almost everything. They pay far more than their fair share.

    A flat tax sounds good, but actually benefits the rich.

    What the plans ACTUALLY want but aren’t smart enough to understand is a simplified tax code with far less loopholes: It is way too easy for the rich to counterbalance all income with write offs.

    THAT is the problem; not the tax RATE.
