Your $1 helps this by removing only seasonal workers, it still means that effectively the age limit is 21/22, three years AFTER a person could choose to go to war.
I would be ok with waiving 5 year rule to anyone who served at least 2 years on a front line overseas.

And they wouldn't be until after two years. You are still having them be able to go to war but not old enough to vote if we should go to war. Gg.

Graduated tax rates aren't complicated, right wingers just don't like them.

They read rich dad/poor dad while Limbaugh was on vacation and think someday they will crack the 28% bracket and actually have to pay a graduated rate, which be communist.

The government should treat everyone equally and that includes the percentage of income they pay in taxes.



I pointed that out to my 16 year old niece last summer. She started working the concession stand at the local city baseball park and stopped by at the end of her first week.
Niece: I worked 20 hours this week.
Me: How much do you make?
Niece: $10 per hour.
Me: Look at your paycheck.
Niece:

Did you not say to her that now she could be proud because as somebody earning money from a job she was contributing to all the infrastructure of the area she lives in, the schools, the roads, the police, her own retirement etc.

That's a big milestone in the life of anybody, when you become a contributor to wider society in your productive years as a transition from childhood when you are benefiting from the contributions of others. You should point that out to get and help her celebrate making that step into adulthood.

Flat tax sucks as well as a national sales tax. That is what a VAT tax is and sucks.

Agreed the worst is the Fair Tax which is regressive among the middle class and the upper class gets off with less because they spend less. People are blinded by less paperwork but don't realize the issues that cause.
