If we had a conservative nurses forum - page 9

Would anyone post in it? :clown: I looked forward to being a nurse for so long....my second thoughts aren't because of nurses eating their own (I have never seen that!) or hours or mean docs... Read More

    what you are talking about is better related to us constitution article 1, section 8:

    [color=#000060]
    "the congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defence and general welfare of the united states; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the united states;"


    i.e. you have every right to expect to be taxed and pay for things you need and a lot you don't, just like every other citizen in this and every country in the world - except maybe somalia.
    Ok, well then quoting YOUR quote, I interpret that to mean there should be a flat tax, not increments depending on income!

    I don't think it's a bad idea. As long as it can remain positive and not used as a means TI divide people in our profession. I can value anyone's beliefs/opinions, even if they aren't the same as my own. I'm not a fan of politics. It gets everyone all upset lol

    No, I believe the uniformity means taxes will be the same from state to state, not individual to individual.

    A truely flat tax, where everybody paid the same rate would actually be highly regressive. A progressive flat tax with no adjustments to income for any reason and all income regardless of source sounds like it could work. However my favorite idea for taxation is referred to as the Robin Hood tax. This is a tax on all financial transactions and thus would be perfectly progressive.

    I'm more of a liberal, but don't really align with one party. Politicians all have their own agendas. I used to be more conservative but I cannot support a party that denies loving consenting adults from getting married or anyone having a say over their own bodies. Plus, I am not religious/am a bit antireligious and that clashes with the conservative views. Or at least that's what Rachel Maddow tells me. lol

    I could tell FL mom of 5 was a conservative without her even saying so based on the content of a post about visitation rights of LGBT people some years back.

    Does not suprise me.

    (Left) Obama <------------> Clinton <------(Center)------> Reagan <------------> Me. (Right)

    Very fiscally conservative, pro-baby's right to life, demand personal responsibility, don't care if gay people get married (but won't fund it), don't care if MJ is made legal and regulated (but don't smoke it), think drug laws/sentences are too draconian (spent most of adult life in Tx Prison System), think government is too intrusive in almost every aspect of our lives, and my guns will have to be taken from my cold, dead hands.

    AND, I don't care about anyone else's opinion enough to argue about it. Think what you will...this is a free country and you have the right to be wrong.
