|There has been a few articles on here, about this subject matter, and I thought I would add my 2 cents. Since the children on Sodahead banned me I am going to post my original writings here. If I pinch an article elsewhere, I will provide the source so that I can’t be accused of plagiarism. Let me hear your thoughts.|
Let’s discuss taxes for a moment. I propose we eliminate individual income tax because the federal government has failed us and takes too much. The Fed says it’s their money they allow us to use and they can tax it at whatever rate they choose. Stop. As the secession of states grows I say we make them rethink that for a moment. We The People work and slave at our jobs for a pay that the Government claims is their money they let us use. It’s time we give them a taste of their own medicine. I say we as individual states go back to producing our own currency for each state. If you do commerce or trade with another state, then the other state can produce the script to any bank and exchange for that states currency.
How did Germany exchange money with France? It would be no different than exchanging currency with Canada or Mexico.
The individual income tax is eliminated to the Fed. The Fed can’t tax state issued currency. Only when the states do commerce or trade with another state can the fed tax the monetary value of the goods or services. The Fed won’t be able to tax the money used within the state because it is not their script the state is using. We effectively become our own masters again as the founding fathers wanted. We will no longer be beholden to the Fed, because we will not use nationalized currency. Thus allowing the states to make and uphold their own laws. Reciprocity pacts and extraditions will be up to the states as they are now. The states can do business with outside entities if they choose to but, that will be taxable by the Fed as that is Interstate commerce. Intrastate commerce is only taxable if you use Federal script. Using state script or the script of your municipality is only taxable by the issuer. This eliminates many Federal banking institutions and reduces the amount of waste the Fed is allowed. State and US reps and Senators will be paid for by each state. No more voting for wage increases. The people will judge if you have earned the money and are deserving.
I propose further that each state maintain their own guard unit paid for by each state. Not the Feds. We will have our National Armies separate from the State Guard Units . The State Guard Units will be under the control of the Governor. To be used by the Fed at the Governors discretion. We will pay a state tax which will be used for the states expenses. Not the Fed.
If secession is a real possibility then the monetary status will already be in place and it would be a fluid transaction. As with any monies or script I may distribute, It would already be guaranteed by the amount of silver or gold on hand to back it up. Unlike the fed., the municipality would not print monies unless it had precious metals on hand to prove it up.
I must tell you all that to go on would be a never ending thing. This has a lot more to it but, I must stop here and continue at another time.
