Politics: Symptoms, Diagnosis, Cure (Your the doctor)
    #3019292 - 08/18/04 06:16 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

  :syringe:  As a citizen, you have the right to make your own diagnosis, and recomend your own cure. Please share yours.   :syringe:


  Diagnosis:
Politics now days are allowing too much religious idealolegy, and corrupt greed and money that influence our politicians, to leak into the decisions that are made.



  Cure:
Pass a bill that imposes strict rules on corperate power, and strict(er) rules that have to do with church and state. Its absolutely nessesary.

    #3019310 - 08/18/04 06:20 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Diagnosis:
Everyone seems to look to the government for solutions to their problems, when in fact, government often is the problem.

Cure:
Stick to the Constitution and shrink the size of government.

    #3019430 - 08/18/04 06:44 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Diagnosis:
The tax code is the single biggest truncheon the government uses to manipulate the populace (and the corporations they own). Too often people (and corporations) make decisions based on the tax code that would otherwise be considered insane.

Cure:
Radically reform the tax code. Eliminate corporate taxes, the owner's profits are taxed as their personal income. (As a corrolary all business subsidies are eliminated as well.) Only direct expenses related to the production and sale of goods or services are deductible. No more drinks and strippers and ballgame tickets as deductible expenses. This would eliminate the need for corporations to keep two sets of books.
Charitable contributions will be made solely due to the charitable impulse of the donor. This will save the charitable institutions countless millions not having to comply with gov regs. End the disparity between people who own (can deduct their housing costs almost 100%) and people who rent (who can't deduct any). Either way you go it has to be made equitable. People who receive medical insurance or any other side benefit from their employers will be charged tax on the value of those benefits as if they were income.
Marital status will not even be asked nor will number of dependents. Thats enough for now. Next fight: phase out social security

Just thaught I'd revise this thread a little bit. Now there is a "Symptoms" area that you have to fill in


Symptoms: Dizzyness, Dry Mouth, Anal Leakage, Iritability

Diagnosis:Must be a republican panicing about all the possible swing voters, making this one of the hardest elections in decades, and one of the nastiest with all of the personal attacks.

Cure: Hold off elections untill the cause of symptoms can be better treated. But for now its best to just get plenty of sleep and to stay away from Polls and the Televison, especialy CNN,CNBC, and MSNBC.

When it comes
I'll know, I know
Just take my clothes and leave
And I'll be gone
