A Tax Idea

If I'm right, Obama will win next week at least in part because Americans want change. Voting for change is fine but if the change leads to a different leader who does a lot of the same stuff, for similar reasons, what's the point?

I've got an idea for change that is so obvious in its merit that it's downright patriotic.

Don't cut taxes. On the rich, on the poor, on the middle class, on anybody. Not now. The U.S. has huge debt and a huge deficit. We need the revenue until we get to a recovery. Our balance sheet is in bad shape.

Redistribution of wealth is stupid. Promising to cut taxes in order to get elected is stupid if you really care about the country you want to run.

Cut it out.
