My idea of the perfect government could be called "Pure Capitalism". It is based
on survival of the fittest and not all people are created equal. To explain this government
I will compare it to our current system. The biggest concept is that the people have
complete control of most all economic conditions.
Taxes: I do not believe in an income tax, I want to choose what I do with my
money. Income in my view is a form of double taxation. To make up for the loss of no
income tax, the sales taxes would be increased, not only would this allow people to have
more control over there money it would virtually eliminate tax fraud. The sales tax could
not tax food intended for consumption, clothing, or other Basic necessities of life. On
average products the rate would be a flat percentage rate, and on products considered
luxiourus the rate would be exponential, much like our current income tax system. A new
administration would be formed to control the rates and stop double taxation. The
inheritance tax would be abolished, if I want to work hard my life, throw all of my money in
the bank, and leave it to my kids so that they can sit around doing nothing till the day
they die, I shouldn’t have to pay for politicians to do sit around there whole life too.
Welfare: The current welfare program pisses me off. In pure capitalism there
would be a one year minimum for basic welfare, after that, all you get is a big "good luck!,
no one ever said life was fair". If you can’t get a job in 365 days you don’t deserve for me
to support you. The only exception here would be if someone was receiving average or
higher education, in which the welfare program would last one year after completing the
course. A set amount of bonus welfare would be received for each dependent when the
program is started, but a deduction larger that the original bonus for any children born
after the program has started. This is to discourage the inferior from reproducing. Poor
breed poor. Again there is any exception for advrige or higher education received.
In order to encourage private businesses to form, an extremely powerful business
loss compensation loss program would be designed. In order for an economy like this
one to survive, it takes guts on the part of the individual, unfortunately that is the reason
many potential Trumps are never discovered. To counteract this, any business which is
registered with the gov’t and then fails, will have compensation equal to the amount
invested in the business initially, that way someone couldn’t start a business, inflate the
vaule till it is about to crash, then liquidate to receive the amount of the inflated value.
They could only get to amount they invested in it back.
Labor: Every business needs a power work machine. Labor Unions in my ideal
economy would have much more power provided by the government. Corporations
would be required to sell stock to its workers. 401(k) plans would be highly encouraged,
and other fringe benefits provided.
When you retire the amount recieved would be based on two things. (1) How
successful you where in life. (2) How hard you worked. With higher emphasis on
number 2, people who have lower job skills would still be encouraged to work harder,
knowing that it will eventually pay off in the long run. Poor breeds poor, but if the poor
stay on the right track, they can still have a decient life.
This last section is to cover the broader based ideals in the perfect economy. Kill
the "All people created equal polacy." Lets face it, some poeple are superior and some
are inferior, the minorities can’t call for affirmative action by hiding behind that statement.
If I want to hire someone based on the color of there skin or there fathers father, I will do
it. Forget minimum wage, you get paid what you are worth, if you are worthless you get
paid less. Likewise, if you have a good education and give it your all, you are worth more
and thus get paid more.
Though bleeding hearts would be in tears after reading this, I belive that this
economy, though vague, would create a world power compairable to the present world
military condition, alowing us to control the weak, not bleed all over them.

The Battle of Bunker HillThe Battle of Bunker Hill Boom, Bang, Crack! The sounds of muskets being fired, its ammunition ricocheting off rocks and splintering trees are heard all around. The pungent smell of gun powder stings the nose, and its taste makes the mouth dry and sticky. The battle is still young, but blood soaked uniforms and dead or dying men can already be seen, causing the fear of death to enter many of the soldiers\' minds.

American RevolutionAmerican Revolution In the aftermath of the French and Indian War, Britain needed a new imperial design, but the situation in America was anything but favorable to change. Long accustomed to a large measure of independence, the colonies were demanding more, not less, freedom, particularly now that the French menace had been eliminated. To put a new system into effect, and to tighten control, Parliament had to contend with colonists trained in self-government and impatient with interference. One
No matter what it comes down to, the major factorNo matter what it comes down to, the major factor for the cause of the American Revolution was the ignorance of the British. The irritated colonists were hostile towards the supposed ‘mother country’ of Great Britain as it tried to reconcile with them. Just as a neglected child would have bitter resentment towards its parent once the parent sought action, so were the American colonists. The cause of the American Revolution began when Great Britain stopped paying attention to the colonies, and ab

One of the greatest international economic debatesOne of the greatest international economic debates of all time has been the issue of free trade versus protectionism. Proponents of free trade believe in opening the global market, with as few restrictions on trade as possible. Proponents of protectionism believe in concentrating on the welfare of the domestic economy by limiting the open-market policy of the United States. However, what effects does this policy have for the international market and the other respective countries in this market?

Ancient EgyptAncient Egypt Between 3100 and 332 B.C was the rise and climax of one of the richest and oldest ancient civilizations. It’s lifeline was the Nile river in the Nile valley. Here, Egyptian dynasties ruled from the first cataract of the Nile to the Mediterranean Sea. At the it’s height it ruled an empire that reached from Syria in the east to Nubia in the south. In this report I will be covering the Archaic Period, the Old Kingdom, the Middle Kingdom the New Kingdom and The Late Period or 3100-332
France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 –France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 – 1715) was the envy of all other rulers in Europe. During his reign he had centralized the government and had encouraged trade and manufacture. His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in. His successors Louis XV (1715 – 74) and Louis XVI (1774 – 93) also participated in lengthy and costly conflicts. France had suffered defeat in the Seven Years War against Britain (1756 – 63). Her army in Europe was crushed b

First, through this era, the power of Assyria was largely dependant on the success of its army (Saggs, 1962). Winer (1961) states that the Assyrian military perfected the art of war. During this time period, some 180 punitive expeditions or campaigns were launched against foreign foes, rebellious vassals or other anti-Assyrian groups (Olmstead, 1923). Second, the Assyrians developed an efficient and
Caligula: The Madness of a GoatCaligula: The Madness of a Goat Many studies have been made on the emperor Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, or Caligula. He was professed to be the maddest, and cruelest of all Roman emperors. As emperor, Caligula put the imperial treasury in severe debt, performed acts of insanity, and committed scandalous sexual acts. The ludicrous deeds he participated in, and carried out left the Roman Empire in infamy. During the reign of Tiberius, the captain of his bodyguards Sejanus began a campaign o
American discontent focused on financial grievanceAmerican discontent focused on financial grievances, but the chief reason for American opposition was the matter of authority. How far do you agree with this view? There were a number of causes that lead to conflict between Britain and the colonists in America during the second half of the eighteenth century. The question is whether an American rebellion was mostly due to a difference of opinion over how much independence the colonies were entitled to, or whether other reasons such as the diffic

Tourists visiting Charlottesville, Virginia, can witness firsthand the ongoing efforts to preserve Jefferson\'s home at Monticello as well as his splendid little Academical Village, the Lawn, which is still a vital center of student life at the University of Virginia.

United States Tax SystemUnited States Tax System The United States tax system is in complete disarray. Republicans and Democrats agree that the current tax code is complex, unfair, and costly. The income tax system is so complex; the IRS publishes 480 tax forms and 280 forms to explain the 480 forms (Armey 1). The main reason the tax system is so complex is because of the special preferences such as deductions and tax credits. Complexity in the current tax system forces Americans to spend 5.4 billion hours complying wi

Socialized MedicineSocialized Medicine Socialized medicine is a service owned by all citizens and is present in many countries. How does it work and what does it do for a nations economy? One of the biggest fears most people have is becoming sick or injured, and the problem for them is paying for it. Under socialized medicine people would receive health care, regardless of their ability to pay. Everyone would be taken care of without worry of how they would pay for their care.

During this period in Europe, commonly known as The Middle Ages, economic reforms took place as well as social, political, and religious changes. One common theme throughout The Middle Ages consisted of the relationship between the Church and the State. The Catholic church during this era held a prominent role in society, and it had an abundant amount of power and authority d

One must decide the meaning of “progressiveOne must decide the meaning of progressive historiography. It can mean either the history written by progressive historians, or it can mean history written by historians of the Progressive era of American history and shortly after. The focus that was chosen for this paper is more in keeping with the latter interpretation, if for no other reason than it provides a useful compare-and-contrast control literature. The caveat is this: the focus of this report is on the predominant question of t
