    Neither Rep ‘s or Dem’s, or even pundits on Fox News will speak the truth because they do not know the truth—that if deficit spending not controlled, tax structure not changed to allow business growth, then those depending on entitlements will get nothing, or maybe 5 cents on the dollar, plus the inevitable, not if but when, devastating economic collapse. If 45% of everything the government spends is either borrowed or printed money—then just how long can that last. We are lemmings arguing about how fast we should run to the cliff, with a tail wind that will throw us over the cliff even if we stop running!

    As I've said before, I'm a fan of the flat sells tax idea. Stop taking taxes from peoples pay checks and assign a flat sales tax to everything you buy (Say 20%) This would mean that those that have more money (and spend more since they have more) would pay more and those that have less money (so buy less) would spend less in taxes.
