Rick Perry’s “File Your Taxes On a Postcard” Scheme

Establishment Republican presidential contender Rick Perry has recycled Steve Forbes and proposed modifying the current tax scheme and instituting a flat tax. Perry is set to officially announce his plan today in South Carolina.

Rick Perry’s “File Your Taxes On a Postcard” Scheme rick perry

“The plan starts with giving Americans a choice between a new, flat tax rate of 20% or their current income tax rate,” Perry wrote in an op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal yesterday.

Rick Perry – like most Republicans – is not opposed to income taxes and wealth confiscation. Instead, he claims to be opposed to the “mind-boggling complexity of the current tax code” that allows “large corporations with lawyers and accountants devise the best tax-avoidance strategies money can buy.” He claims his scheme will allow Americans to file the income taxes the government claims they owe on a postcard.

Perry rival Herman Cain kicked off the supposed tax debate with his 9-9-9 plan that would replace the current byzantine tax system with a 9 percent personal income tax, a 9 percent corporate income tax and a 9 percent national sales tax.

“Our tax code is the 21st Century version of slavery. The IRS has become the overseer of the American people,” said Cain, the former boss of the Kansas City Federal Reserve.

Cain has not proposed banishing that slavery, but merely reducing the load somewhat.

Mitt Romney and John Huntsman have not proposed reducing wealth confiscation and tax code slavery imposed by the government, but they may soon jump on the bandwagon.

None of the candidates dare call for the elimination of the IRS and repealing the 16th Amendment. The only candidate who has proposed that – and also getting rid of the Federal Reserve – is Ron Paul.

Establishment Republicans love the idea of wooing taxpayer citizens with such schemes. The flat tax has been pushed by a number of Republicans, including Mike Huckabee, Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo.

In 1997, Georgia Republican John Linder introduced in Congress a flat tax bill crafted by Americans for Fair Taxation. It is habitually introduced at the start of every session and continues to languish in the House Committee on Ways and Means because both Republicans and Democrats have no real interest in reducing taxes, let alone abolishing them.

“The FairTax is a consumption tax,” writes Laurence M. Vance. “It is the most radical tax reform plan, bar none.” It is not only not flat, Vance argues, but it is not fair. “Just because every American would pay the same rate under the Flat Tax doesn’t necessarily make it a fair tax. Making the tax code less progressive is not enough.”

Rick Perry’s tax scheme is an election season gimmick. Both Republicans and Democrats are addicted to stealing your money at gunpoint. Like Democrats and other state worshippers, they have no problem throwing scofflaws in hell-hole prisons along with murderers and rapists if they refuse to fork over their hard-earned money to the government.

As Vance notes, the the flat tax scheme adored by establishment Republicans is a sneaky way to deflate the anti-tax movement. It is designed to perpetuate theft under the guise of a kinder and gentler tax system.

“We don’t need compassionate tax reform that makes people feel better about paying their taxes,” writes Vance, “we need radical tax reform that reduces, cuts, eliminates, and abolishes taxes without replacing them with other taxes.”

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
