One of the things Dr. Paul has promised to do if elected is to work abolish the federal personal income tax.
In 2008 he claimed that if elected he would immediately declare a 2-year federal income tax holiday - after which he would try to get it abolished altogether.
Now THAT is the kind of thing I want to hear from MY presidential candidate!
Think about it this way: The government takes money out of OUR pay and then gives away BILLIONS in foreign aid - WHICH IS NOT THEIRS TO GIVE.
IT IS OUR MONEY.
WE ARE WAGE-SLAVES.
Except for the 48% who pay NO federal income taxes due to write-offs allowed by the governmnet (meant to influence behavior).
They use tax laws to steer the populace into behavior they deem best.
But just WHO are they who sit on high and judge what is best for the populace?
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
