Who knows how much money the

Who knows how much money the church is skipping out on in the US with their tax exemptions. I'm sure it is well into the billions every year. It is complete bullshit. 

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

Tax exemption for

Tax exemption for churches/religions is bullshit. They function just like every other company does, for profit. Which is one of those loopholes I'd like to see closed here in America. I'd like to see all these non-profit organizations be forced to pay specific amounts of money to their VP's, CEO's, ect.

The BBB is a good example of a corrupt and abusive "non-profit" organization as well, MADD.

And I am unanimous on that.

Yea, and with all the tax loopholes your ilk jack off over I am certain we keep track of that loot too.

My ilk doesn't support loopholes, deductions or credits or even the income tax. I am all for eliminating all of them by having a consumption tax.

Yea sure you do, and not surprised. But point of view is lost on your mindset.

20 or a 100 dollars to you does not mean the same spending power as those who make less.

A progressive tax is the only fair thing.

 

You have simply bought into the robbery meme of your ilk. You simply don't like losing an election.

Ok, first of all, if Beyond is referring to the "Fair Tax Plan", then people below the poverty line would pay ZERO taxes. And, second of all, if...actually, you're right about that--libertarian candidates rarely win elections.
