Releasing the US economic engine
Me

Posted on 08/03/2018 10:26:32 PM PDT by jmclemore

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 administration’s efforts at changing the prison system and other criminal justice issues including prisoner re-entry, rehabilitation, and workforce training programs.

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.

"What next.... Where are the finial restrains, real or imagined, that Trump can remove."

The EU has agreed to some items proposed by President Trump and is working on a more comprehensive agreement. Mexico has begun working with the Trump Administration on a new NAFTA deal.

China replied to the situation with the following.

China appeals for US calm after new tariff threat
Associated Press
Aug. 02, 2018
"We urge the United States to correct its attitude and not to try to blackmail China because it will never work,” said Geng at a news conference. “We advise the United States to be level-headed and avoid simply acting on impulse, otherwise it will ultimately hurt itself."

For those of you who don't know what that is, that's how a threat of war is issued in China.

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.

The best solution: unprecedented changing of national taxation to really encourage savings and investment. Time for a variant of Steve Forbes' flat tax proposed 22 years ago enacted into law right now and then within 3-4 years replace it with something like FairTax.

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..

Actually, the "prebate" should be available to anyone who is here legally: citizens, permanent alien residents (green card holders), aliens with legitimate work visas (maybe it's time to revive the bracero program?), and aliens with student visas (college and boarding schools).

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.
