    and that is the reason I support the Electronic tax. Everybody pays - at an extremely low % - that would be about 1/2 of 1%

    First off what is an electronic tax and how could the nation survive on 1/2 to 1% tax rate?

    90% of the US money in circulation is electronic transfer. 60% of the stock trades are electronic transfer made by computers. 1% of everything is a big number.

    That's why I support Ron Paul. He supports law enforcement! Instead of just more tinkering around the edges of an unlawful un constitutional system to make voters happy.

    Ron Paul is a walking contradiction. And Perry is not my favorite either. But I would gladly vote for either one of them over Obama or anyone like him.

    Bill, I have warned you, people will get suspicious when we agree on something! :smilewinkgrin:

    The GNP is about $ 14 trillion. Assuming only half of all transactions are electronic (7 trillion) x 1/2 of 1 % would be about 3 trillion dollars.

    another words the rich would be paying their fair share, along with all Americans.

    (ps- so when an illegal alien wires money back to Mexico - they would be paying the tax as well!

    A half percent of $7 trillion is only $35 billion.
