Pretty much the way it was when I was growing up. Nix on the flat tax, however. A flat tax is a DIRECT tax and therefore unConstitutional......as is the 16th Amendment, which was NOT ratified by 3/4 of the states. It was needed to be "declared" passed so the social engineers could control everything in our lives while they stole our wealth. Worked, didn't it? When are we going to get the evildoers out of office? Or is it too late?
