Sometimes the lesser of two evils is unavoidable provided, of course, that one is actually less evil than the other.
Beyond that, I do not ever expect to be able to vote for any “perfect” candidate. I don’t believe it possible because we’re all different in our beliefs and priorities.
That said, I agree, there have been times when the choice really was no choice at all and I marked the R ballot out of habit or general principle and that’s a habit I intend to break.Read more
The withholding tax law makes it nearly impossible for citizens to have an effect. Should we be able to pay our taxes the way we pay our Visa or power bill things would be totally different.
No withholding tax. No FICA by the citizen or his employer. Write a check or pick up the phone or go on line and pay it monthly. Keep the same penalties in place for tax non-payment.
See how the government becomes responsive to 10 million disgruntled citizens who simultaneously withhold the payment for a month or two.Read more
If you don't pay taxes, you don't care if she'll raise them.

I spend hours and hours researching each candidate and try my best to make the best decision I can. This election has been the hardest ever to do that, due to such biased media.
I know people have different reasons for their choice in who to vote for and my stance is: take care of the US.

As an accountant I am amazed at the "tax" rhetoric. As a US citizen you are required to pay the taxes you "legally owe" under tax law.
There is a difference between legally "avoiding" taxes, and illegally "evading" taxes. Using legal shelters, and deductions are not a criminal offense.Read more
It's funny how corporate tax loopholes are only an issue for Republicans...every 4 years. Corporations like General Electric, Google, Apple, Facebook & Goldman Sachs all exploit the complex tax laws our corrupt politician/lawyers have created.
If these loopholes are SO evil...and Donald Trump is evil for using them...why didn't Hillary Clinton, or the other corrupt lawyers in Washington DC, ever try to fix them? Because those companies give the corrupt lawyers millions of dollars in campaign contributions...that's why.Read more
