  • I feel the government needs a total overhaul! One thing I would like to see changed is income tax, I feel the income tax should be abolished. If everyone was able to keep every dime, nickel and penny they earn and the only taxes were on things you purchase, each individual could more easily afford necessities, and could simply budget what they buy and therefore what they're paying out taxes for. The government gets a whole chunk of our money just because we work, we deserve to get everything we earn, and to be able to decide how we spend that money.

  • I think we need a whole new congress! They were such floundering fools during this bailout mess! And all the "sweeteners" and "lobbying" should be illegal! Our congress is for sale to the highest bidder!

  • What other things could you tax besides income??? Who would pay for road work? Our education system? Our military? Think about that one. Our education system needs to be reformed.

  • how about drop the electorial college and the popular vote decides the president. after that lets start with the pay of people in government and then move on to welfare reform and the stupid idea that the government should bail out other governments and businesses.
