General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
NO INCOME TAX!

The bold heading above requires some explanation, and that will be forthcoming, so keep coming back. I assure you I am serious, and I assure you we can have a tax system in which individuals are not taxed on their earned income. This site will be under construction and revision for the duration of the campaign, but I want to start with a straightforward declaration of my views on certain issues and challenges.

I think the two most pressing issues/challenges facing Virginia, Virginians, and all Americans is the trend away from problems being solved at the lowest level of government and the increasing cost of government at all levels. These two issues are so closeley intertwined as to be only one issue. Solving one will solve both.

At present the cost of government is exorbitant. Most of this problem is the result of legislators seeking to control and parcel out enormous sums of money for power and influence and to keep themselves in office. This practice separates the average citizen from the government that is supposed to serve him or her. This practice attracts candidates whose motivation is not the best interest of their constituents, or the district they represent. This practice also dictates that government will just grow larger and more expensive.

There is a solution to this problem. The present tax system should be changed to one of a credit based system. Each tax paid at one level of government would be a direct credit to any tax imposed at the next level of government. This would ensure that problems are dealt with at the lowest possible level of government. It would ensure that each level of government deals only with those matters it was intended to handle. It would keep government small, efficient, and economical.

A National Movement called Fairtax.org is in substantial agreement with me on this issue. While I don't agree with some of the particulars, such as the proposed tax rate, I believe that this site will provide answer [Response was truncated to maximum response length of 2000 characters.]
