START A PETITION

Mar 6, 2010

I just signed a petition on the food bill that promises to standardize food even more, and potentiall harm local organic farmers.  I added a coment..and in my comment I started to rant.  But I think I stumbled on a good idea.  I wrote: 'control corporate farming, and factory farms--by destroying them. Free organic farms and subsidize small farmers. I'm a progressive, but this kind of thing makes me want to shout--no big government! As a humanitarian-progressive I will say, No corporate government! But I still think we need to raise taxes for domestic concerns--like SINGLE-PAYER HEALTH-CARE! we should have a two column tax system--taxes for domestic spending on education, organic farming and human welfare; and one for defense. Payable according to wealth and assets. All wealthy people must pay into domestic taxes but are forbidden from paying into defense taxes. Donations into defense is also forbidden. But low-income families do not have to pay into defense. They can opt out.'

Taxes a la carte....everyone chooses the special interests in which to contribute taxes within a threshold--a bottom line and a cap. Categories such as infrastructure, green infrastructure, health-care, labor, conservation/preservation, education, NASA, scientific research, organic farming,...military (optional).
