Ron Paul needs his own 9-9-9

I'm kind of leaning between Ron Paul and Herman Cain. The only reason I like either of them is their ideas on the income tax. Both want it eliminated and the only reason Cain is surging is because of his 9-9-9.

I think Ron Paul has to put something forward that effectively does the same thing in a convincing way. I think his approach to this is politically a mistake. He basically wants to cut the military which could be the easiest way to do it but that will not fly with most republican voters. That is just my opinion on it.

I think he ought to devise a plan that cuts unconstitutional offices such as the DoA. He can just say that his cuts will be getting the federal government back within the constitution. It needs to be dramatic such as terminating all employees that work in unconstitutional offices. That would cut the government immediatly and it would fly with most conservative voters.

Does anyone even know what those 3 terms are?

Preach it! Past, Present and Future.

The best story wins.

Liberty Liberty Liberty: Nothing else matters

Jobs? the economy?: anti liberty terms. I feel like a holstein when those phrases are used.

RP just had a press release

that he will announce something regarding an economic plan in Las Vegas on the 17th.

The Nein-Nein-Nein plan from Cain is terrible. Bad in almost every way. It's shocking that Cain even came out publicly with that.

People

need to know, that the economy is not a "value menu" at some fast food restaurant.

It's like they are using some sort of Pavlovian technique to get the people salivating, thinking they are going to get a free pizza or something.

999 sounds pretty tasty!!

Also, the Federal Reserve is not some manager at Burger King that you can "call up" if your fries are cold.

I like the "Nein, Nein, Nein," that bigmikedude coined here on the DP during the debate. Too bad most people don't realize it is German.

He does

Something along the lines of "repeal the current income tax and replace it with nothing."

How can any conservative

Support 999.
It adds a NEW TAX.
A federal sales tax is a big loser. Wait and see the carnage at town hall meetings held by reps who vote for this.

In my state, a new $20,000 car will have $3200 in sales tax.
Thats before the democrats increase it to pay for national education for all!

USA, jobs, jobs, babies!

small words. essentially meaningless. perfect.

A 0-0-0 plan would be just as

A 0-0-0 plan would be just as stupid as a 9-9-9 plan. Both cut taxes without balancing the budget. It is taxing you in a roundabout way; through inflation. People who don't put their money in investments will get killed by this.

In fact, anyone championing that kind of 0-0-0 plan is being irresponsible. It won't be possible to pass, both in Congress and fiscally.

RON PAUL 2012

7-7-7 Plan!

That would be epic! But, of course the goal would be to get to 0-0-0 eventually. Skipping the 6-6-6 plan of course :)

Ron Paul's plan is 0-0-0.... Can't get better than that.

Cain wants to "fix the government"... Paul wants to "Shrink the government".

I submit to you that SHRINKING the Govt IS FIXING the govt.

Cain is surging because the mainstream media polls are rigged ... have you posted on Herman Cain's message boards stumping Dr. Paul's platform of no income tax? or are you here to advertise 9-9-9 for the Herman Cain campaign?

Direct and progressive income tax

straight from the communist manifesto.

"By the way, when I say cut taxes, I don't mean fiddle with the code. I mean abolish the income tax and the IRS, and replace them with nothing." -Ron Paul

999 will destroy Cain

Who wants to pay a 9% sales tax on top of their state sales tax.

I sure dont.

How about the

0-0-0 plan

Ron Paul is preparing a "white paper" on his position

addressing the economy, taxes, budget reductions, etc., which should come out soon. I was hoping he'd release it before the Bloomberg debate.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Ron Paul is clear

"I don't mean fiddle with the code. I mean abolish the income tax and the IRS, and replace them with nothing." -Ron Paul
