Wylted

By current tax system, I'm referring to the federal tax system currently used by the United States government. Explanation of the Fair Tax 1. The Fair Tax is a consumption tax at the point of sale for 23% of every dollar spent. It's effectively a 30% sales tax. For the first year. 2. The tax will replace income tax, social security, corporate taxes, capital gains tax, Medicare tax, payroll tax, gift taxes and estate tax. 3. The tax would be on all new goods and services. Purchases fr...

Should Abortion be illegal?

NoorH606

The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...

Doctors should be paid more than footballers.

Yes they should. Doctors save lives. Save lives. How much can you buy life for? Footballers entertain people for money and get paid more than doctors. Why is this? They are famous. I'm a football fan, but don't you think its a little bit unfair? Thousands of people die everyday, millions of tears are shed everyday but this number could decrease with doctors. If we pay them more they will work more! More lives saved already. Nobody cries when their football team looses. That's because footba...

Does Socialism Work?

tommylibertarian1

Socialism has been proven to NOT WORK. It's sounds nice and cuddly but it isn't. Socialism is in direct opposition to the constitutional republic that is the United States. Socialism creates a dysfunctional society as well. Bernie Sanders always kept bringing up Denmark and how well Denmark was doing with socialism. Well guess what Bernie, and all you other tree huggers, Denmark has a population of 5 million, the US has 300 million. This is important because in a small community like Denmark, pe...
