jts Posted April 16, 2012 Share Posted April 16, 2012 The word 'po' was invented by Edward de Bono. It means the statement after it can be any damn thing you please. Don't matter it came out of your hind end.http://en.wikipedia....teral_thinking)http://www.edwdebono.com/po.htmhttp://en.wikipedia..../Edward_de_BonoPo, all taxes are abolished.Imagine all taxes are abolished. There is no income tax, no property tax, no tax of any kind. What would the consequences be? This is an exercise in imagination. Let's assume that the Constitution has in it a statement that government can't collect taxes. And let us assume that the Constitution says government can't print money or in any way create money. Inflation is a tax, according to Ron Paul.How the 773H would government live without taxes and without making money out of nothing? Voluntary donations, what else.I imagine a deal would evolve that people could specify what department of government their money is donated to, because people would donate more money if they have control over where their donated money is going. For example if you were opposed to a current war, you would not donate money to the Department of Offence Defence, but you might donate money toward protecting the USA border.If a war is necessary, government would explain why, in a way that even a chimpanzee can understand, to get voluntary donations for the war. Without voluntary donations, they could not fight the war.The Rawesome Foods incident would cost the police department a huge amount of voluntary donations. They would be damn careful that doesn't happen again. They would apologize to people and outline the steps they are doing to see that it doesn't happen again. The police department would be terrified shitless of doing any police brutality that the news reporters would pick up on. And city hall would answer questions asked by reporters, or risk suspicion. They would be afraid of suspicion because that would cost them voluntary donations.Government would shape up or shut down. Reporters would be on them like ugly on an ape. Government would be afraid of the people.Government would most likely be small. People probably wouldn't voluntarily donate enough money to support a large government.Government's feet would be held to the fire in a serious way. There would be no such thing as government is not accountable to the people.Po, all taxes are abolished.Can you run with this idea? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
