    I see no one has commented on ending the Victory Tax of 1943 which began a tax on working people’s earned wages, and replacing it with a luxury tax on specifically selected articles of consumption considered to be luxury. Wouldn’t such a tax bring a measure of fairness to federal taxation in that the poorest among us could avoid the tax while the wealthy would only be subject to the tax when voluntarily purchasing articles of luxury? JWK “…..with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow-citizens—a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities“. Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address

    To be honest, their idea of democratic capitalism would be Obama’s green energy money laundering operation, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, our student loan crisis, the 2018 farm subsidy bill, small business loans, and many other taxpayer financed schemes in which our federal treasury is plundered by folks in government, and a privileged few benefit at the expense of hard working citizens having their earned wages confiscated to finance the above mentioned privileged few. JWK Socialist democrats running for office will promise food on the table, free public housing, health care for all, guaranteed income, free college tuition, and other niceties by taxing the so called rich; and if by chance they ever do get political power because of such promises made, their socialist iron-fisted dependency will enslave the very fools who elected them.

    So, is anyone here a fan of "democratic capitalism"? And just what is your definition of "democratic capitalism"? cap·i·tal: Wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization or available or contributed for a particular purpose such as starting a company or investing. ism: A productive suffix in the formation of nouns denoting action or practice, state or condition, principles, doctrines, a usage or characteristic, devotion or adherence, etc.

    See Cory Booker unveils plan to cut taxes for half the country “Booker''s plan calls for expanding the EITC's benefits to higher incomes — from a maximum income of $54,000 to $90,0000 for married couples — and raising the maximum benefits as well. Joint filers could receive a 25 percent higher maximum credit, topping out at about $8,000 per year. The plan includes a bigger bump in benefits for childless workers, whose EITC payout is currently capped at about about $500, but would rise up to about $4,000 under Booker's plan.” The problem with Booker’s plan is, it makes no attempt to end the unconstitutional and oppressive Temporary victory tax of 1943 which began our federal government’s modern-day confiscation of working people’s earned wages. Let us not forget it was the Socialist Democrats who passed the 1943 "Victory Tax". Roosevelt’s 1943 "Victory Tax" expanded the “income tax” upon corporations and businesses to include a 5 percent “temporary” tax upon working people’s earned wages. And although the 16th Amendment was specifically, and intentionally sold as a way to tax “unearned income” as distinguished from earned wages, the temporary tax on working people’s earned wages was sold as a patriotic necessity in the war effort. But to this very day, Roosevelt’s Temporary Victory Tax, which robs the bread working people earned by the sweat of their brow, is still being collected, and its burden has constantly increased over the years, interfering with poor working people from accumulate wealth, and has forced millions upon millions of poor working wage earners into a state of poverty, and then dependency upon government for their subsistence ___ an outcome which is needed by corrupted political leaders to maintain a permanent and financially dependent underclass voting block!

    During an INTERVIEW on NBC's "Meet the Press," Pete Buttigieg warned that "democratic capitalism" is "slipping away" from the U.S. "America is a capitalist society. But it's got to be democratic capitalism. And that part's really important. And it's slipping away from us. In other words, when capitalism comes into tension with democracy, which is more important to you? I believe democracy is more important," he said. The phrase “democratic capitalism” used by Pete Buttigier, is very telling and alarming, but a phrase one would expect to be used by someone whose father had a love affair with communism. See Nothing to See Here! Pete Buttigieg’s Dad Was a Renowned Marxist ”The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who really, really liked the Communist Manifesto.

    Getting back to the subject of the thread, see: Pete Buttigieg’s father was a Marxist professor who lauded the Communist Manifesto “The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.” It’s quite obvious when Pete talks about “democratic capitalism”, he certainly is not talking about a free market, free enterprise system and leaving the people free to pursue their own economic interests. He’s talking about a centrally controlled system in which folks in government manage a centrally controlled economy and invest tax revenue to accomplish part of their goals. JWK

    see: The Sad Decline Of The Word "Capitalism" If “capitalism” is viewed as a dirty word, should think tanks “clean it up” or abandon it? Like other Americans who were not born in the United States, I still mourn the loss of the word “liberal.” In most of the world the word means nearly the opposite of what it means here. I doubt that the word capitalism will be “stolen” but should we mind if it gets lost? As to the meaning of "capitalism", why not apply fundamental rules to get at its meaning? Breaking the phrase down we find: cap·i·tal:… wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization or available or contributed for a particular purpose such as starting a company or investing.

    A-freaken-men! The fight is about leaving the people free to pursue their own economic interests, and being free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations. What amazed me, when I realized it, the use of the word "capitalism" by Democrats running for office is necessary in advocating their planned economy, and why they reject the use of free market, free enterprise, which is contrary to what they propose and actually exposes their evil desire ____ their desire being a centralized economy controlled and regulated by government financial "investments", much like the Soviet Union's planned economy which left the people enslaved and destitute, while the planners lived large at the people's expense.

    The meaning of words do matter in any productive discussion, so, what is the meaning of “capitalism”. cap·i·tal:… wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization or available or contributed for a particular purpose such as starting a company or investing. ism:… a productive suffix in the formation of nouns denoting action or practice, state or condition, principles, doctrines, a usage or characteristic, devotion or adherence, etc. So, to be accurate, the significant feature of capitalism is therefore the investment of capital to achieve an anticipated profit and/or goal. By contrast, a free market or free enterprise's primary characteristics are: people being left free to pursue their own economic interests, and with the least government intrusion, and left free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations.

    Trump is being creative in the manner he is closing down the border in order to send a shockwave to the Mexican Government and encourage it to start doing its part in stopping the flow of Central Americans flooding through Mexico on their way to America to get free government cheese. The Trump Administration is re-assigning 750 border agents away from ports of entry and making them available to deal with the flood of unwanted border crossers. This of course slows down commercial movement of goods at ports of entry, and the pain is being felt by Mexico and encouraging it to do its part to stop the caravans from Central America.

    Let us recall what Representative BURKE says during our Nations` first debate on a RULE OF NATURALIZATION, FEB. 3RD, 1790 Mr. BURKE thought it of importance to fill the country with useful men, such as farmers, mechanics, and manufacturers, and, therefore, would hold out every encouragement to them to emigrate to America. This class he would receive on liberal terms; and he was satisfied there would be room enough for them, and for their posterity, for five hundred years to come. There was another class of men, whom he did not think useful, and he did not care what impediments were thrown in their way; such as your European merchants, and factors of merchants, who come with a view of remaining so long as will enable them to acquire a fortune, and then they will leave the country, and carry off all their property with them. These people injure us more than they do us good, and, except in this last sentiment, I can compare them to nothing but leeches. They stick to us until they get their fill of our best blood, and then they fall off and leave us. I look upon the privilege of an American citizen to be an honorable one, and it ought not to be thrown away upon such people. There is another class also that I would interdict, that is, the convicts and criminals which they pour out of British jails. I wish sincerely some mode could be adopted to prevent the importation of such; but that, perhaps, is not in our power; the introduction of them ought to be considered as a high misdemeanor. JWK

    Hi I'm Chowder

    I saw your debate with Wild English nut-job Rose with the Fair Tax. Man you tore him apart!

    Anyway I want to say thanks for the info you posted on the Hannity Forums. I used to be a neo-con but I saw the light around December of last year.

    I also used to support the fair tax and really thought for a while it seemed like a good idea. But your statements have changed my mind.

    Thanks man.

    -Chowder.

    P.S Where is your sources for the info, I would like to read them more closely or did you rely mostly on the Constitution: the one document our Politicians ignore except for Ron Paul.
