raise

> It is a pay as you go system - no April 15th.
> The IRS and all associated collection cost would be eliminated.
> Lower production cost will allow business to compete internationally.
> Prices would come down more than the expected sales tax increase.
> Business would expand creating new jobs.
> The money now in off-shore tax-havens would flood back into this country
> stimulating the economy.
> Manufacturing would come back home absent the over-taxation and
> over-regulation that drove them to foreign countries.
>
> Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. Our government
> does not normally confiscate property of emigrants, however, many laws and
> regulations have been passed in recent years which allow many government
> agencies such as the I.R.S., O.S.H.A., E.P.A., B.L.M., and drug
enforcement
> agencies to confiscate property from citizens that are considered rebels.
> Much of this confiscation is achieved without due process of law.

> Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national

The

> Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State,
the

Business

by

> Equal liability of all to labor and the establishment of industrial
armies,
> especially for agriculture. Heavy taxation, over-regulation, and other
> economic problems caused by our government's adoption of socialism has

> Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual
abolition

distribution

totally.

the

easier

becoming

> Free education for all children in public schools.... Communist and
