    OK you’re gonna have to put your money down on this with specifics. Check the following link http://www.worldwide-tax.com/

    Now I believe the four biggest economies are: US, Japan, UK, and Germany…correct? Maybe China. OK, so check out their tax rates on that site. They are all at 30% (corporate). And they have an excellent quality of life. The US is listed at between 15% and 35%. So I want you to give me an exact number of what you think personal and corporate tax rates should be. And then explain to me why other countries such as Romania (16%) and Poland (19%) and powerhouse Ireland (12.5%) with such low rates have such shitty quality of life–basically 3rd world.

    So tell me–please–where you think tax rates should be and why under Clinton they were higher and we had surpluses. Because I think it is sort of knee jerk to just assume tax cuts are always beneficial. As you know, McCain was against the Bush tax cuts. So is he confused? Ignorant? What if Obama returns the rates to pre-Bush days (Clinton days) and it has good effects? What will you say? I agree with you about 60% on this, but you hammer on it so hard that I want you to go on record. So you got some homework, buddy 🙂

    Homework?? That’s a dissertation you are asking for. I can’t put something like that together.

    But there is a country that embraced fiscal conservative philosophy and has thrived. You know, the country with a shitty quality of life.

    Well I guess when rates are THAT high, and you cut them, and then become a member of the largest GDP on the planet, and adopt their currency, and have nowhere to go but up, then sure things will improve. You’ve convinced me!

    At least tell me where you think personal and corporate tax rates should be. And why such ungodly rates under Clinton were so good for the country.

    Without doing a detailed analysis I will say zero. Go straight to the fair tax.
