Welcome to Rick for Prez

About Me

My background

I'm an ex-combat vet  /  retired years ago  /  have always been LIBERTARIAN  ( favor conservative fiscal policies in govt at all levels )  /  favor the abolition of fed income tax & abolition of the Federal Reserve  /  worked in Financial Sector for 40 years

Who I am

America was built by independent, self sufficient people who mostly took care of themselves

  I love this concept.  The ONLY exception I might favor is a national BASIC healthcare system.  THAT being said; it MUST be economically viable AND market based.  The only way that can work is with a broad based tax of some kind.  What most people do NOT know is that the Feds collect approximately 5 BILLION dollars yearly in EXCISE taxes - THAT should be enough to run a DOWNSIZED federal government.

   Healthcare can be financed with just TWO taxes;  Those that bring children into this world should pay perhaps $300 per head per year until the child reaches age 21 whereupon all those funds would go into a DEDICATED personal account.  ANYONE that chose NOT to buy health insurance should be on their own.  As far as getting this "off the ground" ~ a broad based tax IS the answer.  It could be levied thru a 2% national sales tax: built into the price of every item sold in excess of $100 - just a thought

Things I love
