More on Guns

Posted in For Free Trade, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 8, 2016 by cavalier973

I heard snippets of some speech that Pres. Obama was giving, in which he stated something to the effect of: “There are many responsible gun owners who like to go hunting and go to the shooting range, but inner city folk have an entirely different experience when it comes to guns.”

Well, the 2nd Amendment wasn’t put in there for hunters, Mr. President. It was understood that personal possession of firearms was an element of national defense, hence the reference to militias. According to Federal policy, the national militia consists of every able-bodied man between certain ages (I think 18 and 45). Therefore, it is imperative that each able-bodied man possess a firearm.

The best national defense is an armed populace.

Furthermore, it is “the right of the people” to keep and bear arms. This is an inherent right; it is not granted by the Constitution. The Constitution prohibits the Federal Government from infringing on a right that the people already have.

Trump’s Tax

Posted in For Free Trade, Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 11, 2015 by cavalier973

From Donald Trump’s Website:

 

  1.  If you are single and earn less than $25,000, or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you will not owe any income tax. That removes nearly 75 million households – over 50% – from the income tax rolls. They get a new one page form to send the IRS saying, “I win,” those who would otherwise owe income taxes will save an average of nearly $1,000 each.

That’s actually pretty good. I wonder what his plan is for elements of the tax code such as the Child Tax Credit.

Here’s the next part:

2. All other Americans will get a simpler tax code with four brackets – 0%, 10%, 20% and 25% – instead of the current seven. This new tax code eliminates the marriage penalty and the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) while providing the lowest tax rate since before World War II.

This is also fairly good. Much of the tax burden, as I understand it, is the cost of compliance.

He also wants to reduce the corporate tax rate to 15%, and eliminate the death tax.

I disagree with Trump about trade, but his tax plan looks appealing. I guess I’m going to have to look at other candidates’ websites, now.
