Leaving the Middle Class behind, and killing off Free Enterprise Capitalism (Small / Medium Size main Street Businesses) is the PROGRESSIVE plan, promoted by both DEMs & the GOP. It's the path to Fabian Socialism, openly promoted by Bush 41 as the New World Order, and to kick it off, he signed us up for Agenda 21. Then came Clinton, who gave us NAFTA and paved the way way for the Multi-Nationals to move our manufacturing offshore, further promoting Bush 41's vision. With the Multi-Nationals moved to safety, that cleared the deck for Bush 43 to ramp up destructive regulations against small businesses, in favor of big business, and according to a study done by George Mason University, Bush 43 enacted more regulations than all previous presidents combined, and then we got Obama, and you all know what he's doing to further promote the Socialist Agenda (wealth re-distribution, expanded government, and welfare state, open borders, etc, etc. We're screwed folks, because we have no representation. It's the 'ruling' class against we, the 'sucker' class.
What would we call this, a CONUNDRUM, or a DILLEMMA ? Progressive Republicans trying to trick us into thinking they are different than the Progressive Democrats, when they are both BIG GOVERNMENT proponents, marching us to the Fascist NEW WORLD ORDER / ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. We're gonna get scr _ _ _ _ either way.

The Problem With Obama's Tax Plan

We need a paradigm shift, and somewhere out there, a bored, lonesome Economist should run the numbers on a new model. The current model, which works (for the top 1%) is flawed. It is DEBT Based, CONSUMPTION Driven, PRODUCTIVITY Taxed, and the result is WEALTH ACCUMULATION at the top. Why not research a system that is ASSET Based, PRODUCTIVITY Driven, CONSUMPTION Taxed, WEALTH CREATION at the Bottom ? Of course we could continue to treat this like Global Warming, only paying the economists when they generated the RIGHT outcome, following the script of the 'Ruling Class', which means, nothing changes.

Two Views of Capitalism

Mr. Goodman, I believe there are two Capitalism models as you note. Model # 1: DEBT Based, CONSUMER Driven, TAXING Productivity, ACCUMULATING Wealth at the TOP. Model # 2: ASSET Based, PRODUCTIVITY Driven, TAXING Consumption, CREATING Wealth at the BOTTOM. Hopefully, a BORED, UNEMPLOYED Economist will read this, create the comparitive models, write a book, become rich and famous, and be the economic advisor to the next fool that runs for President, trying to fix the unfixable.

Dear Professor, It appears I'm the only response to your article today, so I'm going to try to be as productive as possible, with a challenge to you and your students. Our current economic model is DEBT Based, CONSUMER Driven, TAXING Productivity, ACCUMULATING Wealth at the top. I believe, what we should have, but don't have the data to back it up, is a paradigm shift, where we have a system that is ASSET Based, PRODUCTIVITY Driven, TAXING Consumption, CREATING Wealth at the bottom. That model would wipe out "K" Street and Level The Playing Field, and that alone would be a major accomplishment. Come On Professor, roll up your sleeves and put your students to work and PROVE MY POINT. As J.R. Ewing of the DALLAS show used to say, "Where there's a Way, there's a Will".

Paul Ryan’s New Way Forward

Dear Congressman Ryan, Without a complete paradigm shift, the best ideas you or anybody has are merely the equivalent of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. We now have a Debt Based System, Consumer Driven and we Tax Production, which Accumulates Wealth at the Top. What we need is an Asset Based System, Productivity Driven and we Tax Consumption, which Creates Wealth at the Bottom. You're the Math Professor, so work on that one, and then we can talk about Term Limits, A Balanced Budget Amendment, and Loser Pays for the Trial Attorneys along with the Abolishment of Public Sector Unions. I could go on, but you get my drift. It's time to stop tinkering and get serious. Oh, I almost forgot, abolish the Federal Reserve, and move that responsibility to the US Treasury, and set up State Banks and let's fix this mess.
Perhaps Dr. Carson, we should debate a paradigm shift, and move away from Consumption Based, Debt Driven Model where Productivity is taxed, to a Productivity Based, Asset Driven Model where Consumption is taxed. Of course that would pretty much wipe out K Street and level the playing field, but the Presidential Candidate that promotes that concept, gets my vote, especially if it's combined with Term Limits. Equal Opportunity has a way of removing race, color, religion, creed and gender as well as it unites. What a concept. What do you think Doc ?
