By the way, the thrust of the post is that there are numerous other global issues we face in this country in NEED of attention that will greatly impact our tax generation needs. Not to provide a concise plan to do so.

That having been re-iterated. Changes can, and must occur in one way or another to reform our govt spending, and resultingly, reducing the debt, and growing deficit that is eating us alive and will continue to grow if left unchecked.
Obviously, our boys and girls on the hill will have to develope that plan. Again, it won't be easy. It can be done. Important safety tip:
Many (if not all) politico's won't do this willingly, as things like this don't line their personal nests.

But what is the alternative??? Sit on your ass and do nothing??? All is well??? That's how we got here. AND before you ask me again, I don't have a concise plan in place. Not my job. Not a job I can do. However, that is not an excuse we should accept from our govt, as it IS their job
Again, I ask you - What have YOU done to affect actual change or oversight of the current governmental choices. Perhaps if everyone in your district scrutinized the choices made by your representatives and held them accountable for it changes could occur.

You don't propose a plan yet ask me to do so. Sorry, I don't have a scheme other than to work hard within the system we have. The "Get rich quick" schemes of flat taxes and draconian reductions of government revenues do nothing but distract from the fact that it takes hard work to build consensus, to effect change and to make a real impact on how the government spends money.

If you want a simple solution that doesn't require you to do anything - just chill until the dictatorship is established.

Actually that was directed at Schneed. I missed the quote.

However, I have not done one damn thing, except try to vote responsibly. I might have to re-assess that.
Far be it from me to suggest anything from Draco's party guide, but dramatic change is needed. It is our elected officials job to lead us down the path to fruition, not doom. If they will not do that willingly, and I don't really think as a group, they will, we're in deep......
Well, maybe is as you say, you have to start somewhere.
We are going to need some honest, well meaning, hard working selfless elected officials that won't let us down. That may be the first hurdle
