Trump wins election and the economy starts clawing itself out of the liberal grave it was forced into.
Trump rolls back EPA rules and the economy stands up and starts walking.
Trump gets tax reform and the economy starts galloping like a thoroughbred.
Trump starts slapping our trade partners with tariffs and instead of economic calamity, the jobs you can't bring back, start returning on their own and the economy is now soaring....
What next.... Where are the finial restrains, real or imagined, that Trump can remove.
Breaking the barriers of low expectations.
Watch this video to see how it's done
President Trump met with inner-city pastors yesterday from around the nation to discuss his administrations efforts at changing the prison system and other criminal justice issues including prisoner re-entry, rehabilitation, and workforce training programs.
Trump has sped up internet speeds by killing Net Neutrality government tech reviews (pre-deployment)
Trump also approved the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines.
As for what else can be done:
Force imported products to each carry U.S. liability insurance
Give away federal land, especially to the unemployed and handicapped who are willing to work it
End the Deep State
Reduce our offshore troop deployments below the current 130 nation point
Drug approval reform
Reduce copyright periods to 20 years to allow more sharing
Now that’s the swirling list of nightmares keeping libs flipping in their beds at night. It’s taken them a very long time to convince so many to voluntarily shackle themselves without force. That much freedom would make it impossible to enslave a nation without the power of the state in their control.
I don’t think enough people realize the connection between Trump’s tariffs and the current repatriations of jobs.
Stopping ALL immigration for 50 years so wages can finally catch up. It’s the last piece of the puzzle.
The real finial (top of the pyramid) restraint is the FED RE$ via interest rate hikes. Removable? Not so much. Accountable? To artificial economic restraints.
Murky SWAMP...lots of creatures.
I havent heard about this. Do you have a link?
Imagine no taxes on bank account interest or stock dividend payments--so much money would pour into the USA we could actually erase the national budget deficit within 10-15 years!
“something like FairTax”
The Fairfax plan in appropriately named. Ironically, you could promote it with a very famous quote
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”
Those who can buy more, pay more in consumption taxes after they exceed the automatic refund.
Those who are in poverty (even self imposed poverty) will not be able to spend enough in consumption taxes to overcome what they receive in automatic refund.
All contributors to the system participate in funding operations. That would include citizen and non-citizen alike. For non-citizen, no automatic refund. No more loopholes or deductions or credits to avoid paying a fair share. No faking poverty schemes, hiding income or under the table gains. The fairtax puts it all back in on top of the table exposed to the light of the marketplace. Most importantly it strips a lot of the government power and control from the monetary system and diminishes their ability to use taxes to manipulated voters...
I really thought the liberals/socialists would have jumped on the Fairfax just to exploit the auto-refund as a spring board into a basic income scheme or worse a full government replacement of employer based wages and salaries..
Thanks for the clarification. I misused the word non-citizen to represent a non-resident. You are correct.
Good grief, that’s not a “threat of war.”
That’s an admission of failure and weakness by China.
Real lasting reform would remove political whim from monetary adjustments and tie it to real economic measurements.
Small loses can be absorbed and Small gains can are better than nothing.
If our Treasury rates and volume were tied to GDP, the economy could regulate our monetary system. It would automatically shift to balance between monetary inflation and product inflation.
Taking the monetary reigns from politically connected cronies, will force them to respond to the economy instead of the economy responding to them. Everytime the economy starts to run they stick a leg out and trip it. We all have to recover from their action. Nobody should have that much control over (us) the economy.
And another important point to emphasize is the false image of our economy as a huge market place of monetary activity. A more accurate image is a picture of American citizens. Because we are the economy. The market falls and rises with with our ability to pay.
