GOP candidates Economic Plans: A Snap Shot Look.

I am sad to see Ron Paul has a 15% corporate tax, while Newt has 12.5%, Cain has 9%, and Santorum 0%.

Come on Ron, make it zero with "no strings attached".

Who do the Banks support?

Yes, Mitt Romney, hands down.

Do you Want Liberty Pac to broadcast a 30 second Ron Paul Commercial? This is how much it will cost to get the most "eyeballs".

If you wanted your brand's message broadcast to the millions of American Idol viewers last Spring, you'd have dished out between $468,000 and $502,900 for just 30 seconds of airtime.

The folks at AdAge recently put together its annual chart that shows how much a single, 30-second commercial costs to run on the most popular primetime network TV shows this season. Here are the 15 most expensive this fall. FOX leads the way with six of the shows, but NBC holds the #1 spot.

So what can we all do costs us little? Perhaps since YOU and I are trying to "Win Friends & Influence People" for Ron Paul --- the LEAST we could do is review this short list on how to do just that: WIN FRIENDS & INFLUENCE PEOPLE

1) First and always: Smile. Make it your best 1st Impression.

2) Remember people's names.

3) Give honest and sincere appreciation.

4) Show a genuine interest in others & admire them in some way.

5) Soften them up with Praise, then make your point, then end again with Praise.

6) Destroying a man's ego is the worst thing you can do. And let's not forget, ideas & ego are tied together. So tread lightly.

7) Never criticize others. Boy have we all noticed this from Ron Paul, and we admire him for it!

8) Be a good listener. A good listener is someone who can repeat both the feelings & points made by someone the have just listen too, and get their head nodding "yes, yes, that's what I think".

9) Let others know their self-worth. Each day we all wake-up hoping someone would notice it, so notice it! You won't be forgotten.

10) Be friendly & humble from the start. “This may, perhaps, be worth thinking of, etc., etc. and so it might be wise to consider that." Start things off with humility and ears will open. End with humility and minds will open up.

11) Open with topics you and your opponent agree on. Remember old Socrates always began by asking a gentle and obvious question — a question that will get the “yes, yes” response.

12) It's OK to lose an argument. As wise old Ben Franklin used to say: “If you argue and rankle and contradict, you may achieve a victory; but it will be an empty one because you will never get your opponent’s good will." Which would you rather have, an academic, theatrical victory or a person’s good will? Because you can seldom have both.
"A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

13) Be sympathetic. *** Would you like to have a magic phrase that would stop all arguments, eliminate ill feelings, create good will, and even make the other person listen attentively? Here it is:

“I don’t blame you one tiny bit for feeling as you do. If I were you I would undoubtedly feel just as you do.”

14) Admit when you're wrong and mean it. Restate what you did wrong and then end with, "I am very sorry and I won't let that happen again."

15) Let the other person think the idea is theirs. Isn’t it bad judgment to try to ram your opinions down the throats of other people? Isn’t it wiser to make suggestions — and let the other person think out the conclusion? Let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers - this way they "own it" and are not "leasing it" from you.

16) See things from the other person's point of view. Try to think it through from their point of view

Corporate tax

Doesn't all the money from the corporate tax go to national defense. And all the income tax goes to the fed to pay the interest on the debt. I believe every penny of the corporate tax brought in matches exactly what is spent on defense

Good sites, thanks

and the advice is very good.

No, you're not.

Against the rules and you know it, Treg. Come on, man.

Also, eliminating the income tax and cap gains tax more than makes up for a 15% corporate tax rate:
-Corporate tax rate: 15%
-Eliminate income tax
-Eliminate capital gains taxes
-Eliminate estate tax
-Supportive of flat or fair tax, but only if government's power to levy income tax is abolished

VU...... so now I must Cheer Ron Paul's tax plan like this...?

0-0-15 !
